About

Inspiring you to wear something happy everyday!.

I think it is important to feel good about what you wear. First impressions are about what people see. I find myself often staring at people that just seem to have it all pulled together. Maybe they aren't like that in the inside but they look it and I like the saying "Fake It Till You Make It"

YaY! Jewelry really started as a hobby...for fun and for free like most. People would tell me you really should sell your designs. I struggled with my esteem as a jewelry artist .... I really wasn't sure of my style yet. Overtime I found what I really loved and learned as an artist if I trust my gut and stay true to what I love others will to.

Some exciting news for YaY! Jewelry was getting on the front cover and securing the Designer Collection in Belle Armoire Jewelry. Seeing your designs in print is quite thrilling and on another note YaY Jewelry has been seen on the neck of one of The Vampire Diaries stars. One of my creations was worn by actress Claire Holt who plays Rebekah. I have also made jewelry for Cedar Cove TV and had actress Teryl Rothery wear one of my necklaces.

I am an earthy jewelry and accessory artist. I love to work with stone and mixed media. I love earthy and eclectic jewelry and accessories. I think if I saw someone wearing that I would want to talk to them and ask them questions. So as I design I keep the consumer in mind.

Here is what one of my customers had to say about their purchases.

"WOW. WOW. WOW. I thought these were nice looking in the photos...duh!! They're gorgeous!! The "pictures" on the stones are amazing...they look hand-drawn! I LOVE these earrings!!!! :D"

I love to experiment with different styles now and again...so you might see something in my shop that is off the beaten path from what I normally make. I like to keep it fresh and free...that is where my creativity streams from.

I hope I inspire you to wear something that makes you feel happy and beautiful.

Enjoy my shop!

Shipping
I ship First Class USPS. Jewelry will come to you in a jewelry box and in a padded envelope, unless you are international they will ship in bubble wrap and flat cardboard for rigitity. If you want expedited shipping please let me know and I can invoice you for the additional amount through Paypal.

If you are willing to go without the pretty packaging, I am willing to discount some shipping if you go without the gift boxes, let me know and I will refund you via Paypal...... no discounts for international buyers.

Shipping charges are going up and I try to keep them affordable, my cost includes the padded envelope, gift boxes and shipping charges and delivery confirmation plus transportation to the post office. Consider the expense of those items when you are questioning the shipping. Plus when all is said and done a combined 8% plus is deducted from the sale after Etsy and Paypal fees.


iInsurance is optional to the buyer and is an additional charge unless you select Priority Mail then it will come with around $50.00 insurance through the USPS, just let me know your wishes for insurance and I can give you a quote. Insurance is not available to international buyers unless you pay for expedited shipping which is mucho $$$.

International buyers do not have insurance or tracking but at great expense to you. All fees associated with the shipment and customs fees are the buyers responsibility. I will however give you a custom number so you can contact your customs department.
Refunds and Exchanges
Read all the copy and view the product photos in detail this will insure that the products meets your specifications and needs. PLEASE check the measurements to ensure that it fits...I want my customers happy.

All shipping returns & exchanges back to me are at the buyers expense.

I will repair first if possible and will do so at my expense and ship back to you at my expense.

Items lost in the mail or damaged in shipment are not my responsibility if the buyer chooses not to add insurance. I take great care to package my items to insure safe delivery. If you do recieve an item damaged in the mail and insurance was purchased, contact me right away. Do Not Throw The Packing OUT ! Everything including the packaging needs to be returned to me in order to file the with USPS.

I have been selling things on the internet since 2000 and have never had an item damaged in the mail.
