My jewelry is my art, and I am very proud of my work. I've been improving my craft for years, teaching classes, and applying careful attention to every detail of every item. Notice the fully rounded loops on eyepins - I dare you to pick out which side of a beaded link came from the factory and which was made by my hand. See the even spacing between beads and the orderly nature of the design - each new product I develop goes through many permutations before I choose the version that I'm willing to offer to the public. Read the information I include about each item listed - I want to know every intimate detail of what I make so that I know what I'm offering you.
In this shop you'll find items made with care and with character. Many of the components and beads in my pieces are repurposed or one-of-a-kind, and all are original designs. I'm currently developing some new designs that feature components recycled from the building process of certain Seattle landmarks!
I use USPS First Class for most items because it's the most economical option; for higher price items, I use USPS Priority Mail with delivery confirmation for security. I reuse old packaging when possible so forgive any old labels please. Orders usually go out the next business day.
If you are local in the Kitsap area and you'd like to save on shipping, you can pick up your purchase at one of my local events or we can meet. Use coupon code FREELOCALSHIP983 at checkout and we'll set up a place and time.
INTERNATIONAL SHIPMENTS - I welcome international orders and I am committed to getting shipments to every country quickly and in accordance with all appropriate customs laws. To that end I am currently updating my prices to account for individual countries' import restrictions, such as required shipping methods. It's all pretty involved and sometimes confusing, so if you have any questions or concerns about the cost of shipment to your country - or if you'd like me to ship to a country that isn't listed - please convo me and I'll be happy to go over the details with you.
Refunds, returns & exchanges
I'm very proud of my work, and my goal is for you to be a happy owner of my handmade, wearable art. If you aren't satisfied with your purchase, get in touch within fourteen (14) days and I'll do my best to make it right. That may mean exchanging the item, repairing it for you, or refunding the purchase price.
Please open your package and examine your purchase right away. If the stones don't quite match your blouse or it otherwise doesn't meet your expectations, contact me within fourteen (14) days of receipt and I'll be happy to refund your purchase price.
I do recommend you keep your receipt and other purchase info; I keep my own records but it will streamline the process if you can get me the pertinent information in the first contact.
Also, I need you to return the item in a satisfactory manner, preferably in the original packaging. You are responsible to pay the return shipping; I will pay for shipment of any replacement or repaired piece back to you.
If you have a good experience, please leave feedback. If you have a bad experience, please convo or email me first so that I can make it right. Remember, I'm in it for you!
Yes I am willing to do custom orders; please contact me with details. Because many components I find are repurposed from other pieces, I may not be able to get the exact clasp or focal piece; however, I will do my best to provide similar alternatives.
Also I am willing to do wholesale work with a $250 minimum order at 50% of retail price. Again, get in touch directly so we can work out details.
I wear every new design to check for durability, and I test each connection on each piece to make sure it is secure. Not only do I wear my own jewelry, but many of my friends and family have road-tested my designs over the years. So I'm very confident in the quality of my workmanship and I'm certain you will be satisfied with your purchase. However, if you do have the unfortunate experience of seeing a necklace disintegrate into a shower of seed beads, please save as much of the material as you can and let me know right away so we can work out the repair.
