They were just a tiny but bigger than expected, but I love them. Very comfortable and very cute! Thank you!

I took a chance on a Mystery item and I absolutely adore it! I had really been hoping for one of Donna's delightful galaxy octopi, and I got it! The piece is beautiful and delicate, but not overly so, and has a faint blue/green sheen. She also included these black bloody rose earrings. It was a delightful surprise and I will definitely Pay It Forward in exchange. Thanks again, Donna.

Work in progress. One might end up in a mystery bag.

Creatively broke

I have dabbled in all things art since I was just a fetus in my mothers womb. I know this because my mom had a c-section and apparently the doctor saw images, like cave paintings, on the walls of her uterus. Don't believe me? Well you shouldn't. Anyway, I was always drawing, painting, or making something. In March of 2011, I decided it was time to start selling my creations. I'm not talking about the picture I drew in 2nd grade of a horse, that looks more like a dog, nope. I'm talking about uniquely sculpted clay jewelery for unique people. Don't be fooled by the name of the shop. There's more to it than just dead things.

Like the 5% of the other shop owners, that aren't resellers, I started my shop when I realized I wasn't able to find a job and my husband cut my allowance. :( But now I am a stay at home mom and get to do what I love on the side.
So here I am, coming up with new things all the time,and creating my ass off as an outlet from the real world.

I try to ship as frequently as possible. All items are shipped USPS. Please allow up to 3 days for a ready made item to ship. Made to order items may take up to 2 weeks to ship.

All orders come with tracking and shipping insurance included in the shipping price. please go to http://www.shipsurance.com/etsy/terms if you have questions about terms and exclusions.

International shipments may take 4-6 weeks to arrive. Buyer is responsible for any custom fees, if applicable.

All my items ship in either bubble kraft mailers or recycled boxes.

A note can be included upon request.

PLEASE make sure the address you provide to Etsy is absolutely correct. If the item is returned to me due to incorrect info, the buyer will be required to pay for reshipping. The reshipping amount will be the same price it originally shipped for. Or you will have the choice to be refunded for the price of the items shipped. Shipping cost will NOT be refunded.
Refunds and Exchanges
If an item arrives damaged, please contact me to start a claim.

If the product is not to your liking, you can send it back for a refund of the items price within 14 days of delivery. The item must be returned in original condition, unworn, ect. I will not refund shipping costs as it is a separate service. Buyer will have to pay for return shipping.

If your tracking number does not show as scanned by the post office within 3 days of creation, please contact me. This is a very rare occurrence (has only happened to 3 orders from the same day no less), and this means that someone either stole your package out of my mail box or the mail carrier is a failure at life. unfortunately, the post office wont help, and the insurance only covers scanned items. I can not do refunds, but will be glad to take a hit and send out replacement product.
Additional policies and FAQs
I never include invoices in my packages. Since you already have an electronic receipt, there is no need to waste more paper. :)
