weremadeofpaint's Shop Announcement

Hello and Welcome to We're Made of Paint! Home of the Wearable Paint Jewelry Line.

Notice we have some new items and some new sale items! Peruse our stock to find some great deals and interesting new adornments!

Everything you see on this site is handmade COMPLETELY made out of acrylic paint, with the odd bead thrown in to make it wearable and AMAZING. If you are looking for unique jewelry that will get compliments from strangers and set you apart from the rest, you have come to the right place! As far as we know, we are the ONLY people making jewelry out of raw paint, and that guarantees that you will be buying something that most people haven't seen before!

The Wearable Paint Jewelry Line is created so that you don't have to wear just another necklace, you can wear an original painting around your neck!

Have any questions or interested in a custom made piece? Just convo us or email us at weremadeofpaint [!at] We'd love to hear from you!

Thanks for stopping by!

We have been sold by the Nelson Atkins Museum Store, in Kansas City, MO and the Bridge Gallery in Chicago, IL.

We accept payment through PayPal. It's integrated with Etsy and after you commit to buy you simply click the "Pay Now" button and follow the directions. A PayPal account isn't required to pay with a credit card. Sorry, no checks or money orders.

Residents of Pennsylvania sadly must pay a 6% sales tax.

Payment at time of purchase is appreciated. If no payment has been made after 3 days, your order will be canceled and the item will be re-listed. If you have trouble with the payment system, please contact us and we will try to help.

We love special orders and can usually turn around an original piece designed just for you within 2-3 weeks. Payment is due in full before we start making the piece, but we will send pictures before you agree to anything. Custom orders are not refundable.


We typically ship the items you see in our shop within a week of order date, and depending on your location, your purchase should show up around a week and a half after that (so about 2 weeks after you make your purchase). If you have a specific deadline, please let us know so we can get your package to you when you need it.

We only use the address given via Etsy, not Paypal, so please make sure it is full and correct.

Each item is carefully wrapped to arrive safely on your doorstep. Domestic items are shipped First Class with delivery confirmation. Shipping can take anywhere from 4 to 8 days. If it takes longer than 14 days please let us know.

If you need your order quickly we can ship it to you via 2-3 day Priority Mail with a tracking number for an extra fee.
Let us know if you would prefer this and we'll email you a new Paypal invoice.
