Dress fabric tissue thin and just not as well made as expected. Overall a disappointment. Shipped on time but crumpled into a tiny box and is absolutely a mess.

About

Steampunking in Texas

I have been making jewelry for many years and got interested in steampunk in early 2008. I jumped right in, having fallen in love with the aesthetic and the repurpose, reuse,recycle approach so prevalent in steampunk.

Each of my pieces is individually handcrafted. I do not mass produce or duplicate any piece I make so any item purchased from my shop will be a unique piece, lovingly crafted by hand.

I use mostly found items. I scour yard sales, flea markets, estate sales and antique shops to find old clocks, keys, cameras, jewelry, lamps and any other bits of ephemera that might make their way into one of my creations.

If you are active in the steampunk community keep your eyes open, you just might see one of my pieces adorning a favorite author or musician.

I am a regular ;vendor at Steampunk November held in Venus, Texas every November and I have items from my shop go all over the world. Please take a look around and find something you'd like to have sent to your home or that would make the perfect gift for that special Steampunk in your life!

Welcome to Figments by Kathleen! I am a working mother who loves to create unique pieces of jewelry and art in my spare time. Check back often as I frequently add new things.

All of my items come from a smoke free but pet friendly home (2 dogs).

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
  • Other Method
Returns and exchanges
I package all my items quite carefully. ACEOs are protected by stiff plastic cases if they are two dimensional, then placed between two layers of stiff cardboard and wrapped in bubble wrap, then placed in a padded envelope. Three dimensional ACEOs, shadowboxes and other three dimensional art are carefully wrapped in tissue paper, mulitple layers of bubble wrap and packing peanuts as needed and put into sturdy cardboard boxes. Jewelry is placed in small boxes and padded so that nothing rattles. The small boxes are then wrapped in bubble wrap and placed into padded envelopes or small shipping boxes. However, I still recommend that buyers purchase insurance on more fragile items (especially those in shadowbox frames).

If an item arrives damaged or broken I will repair it if I can. If you have requested insurance I will file a claim with the USPS and will apply that towards return shipping and cost of materials. The remainder will be sent to you when your item is returned. You will be responsible for the cost of shipping the item back to me.

If the item is insured and you opt not to have it repaired the insurance amount will be due to you.

If you have not opted for insurance I am willing to repair items damaged in shipping but you will be responsible for all pertinent costs (shipping, materials, etc).
Payment
I accept payment via PayPal.

________________________________________________________________

Payment must be received by the end of the third day following your purchase from my shop (in accordance with etsy policy). If you have changed your mind on a purchase prior to paying PLEASE convo me immediately to let me know so the item can be relisted and fees taken care of properly.

Any items NOT paid for within 3 days will be relisted and the sale cancelled.
Shipping
I ship via the US Postal Service and my US rates are based on First Class postage. If you prefer Priority Mail please let me know PRIOR to making payment so that I can calculate the new cost send you a revised invoice. In addition, I am now including Delivery Confirmation on all packages due to the increase in lost and missing packages. This fee is included in your shipping cost.

I have NO control over the USPS handling of ANY package once it has been shipped. I do not take responsibility for missing items, late arrivals or damage during shipping caused by the USPS. I strongly recommend that you choose to have your package insured in case of damage or loss by the USPS. If you choose to insure please indicate this in the notes on your purchase (along with the amount you would like your item insured for) and I will recalculate your final amount and send a revised invoice.


I DO ship internationally! Because I have lost money on shipping in the past I now calculate shipping for each international order on an individual basis. If you are purchasing from a location outside of North America, please convo me before paying so I can determine your exact shipping costs.
Additional policies and FAQs
I am trade friendly (providing I find something I'd like to trade for) so if you see anything that you'd like to work out a trade on (in either of my shops, http://figments.etsy.com or http://eclecticmiscellany.etsy.com), just convo me and let me know. I don't accept every trade request and often will not trade for jewelry, but if you have something in your shop that appeals to me, I will certainly consider making a trade.
