Here are the
Many people ask me where I come up with my designs. Usually, they come to me in dreams [cheesy, I know, but true] or I'm inspired by what I see around me; the colors of a sunset, the shape of cloud, whatever catches my eye. It's rare for me to have straight lines in my designs - they don't normally appear in nature and I'm simply more drawn to curves and waves.
All orders will be sent USPS with a normal 3-4 day delivery and will be packaged in either a gift box or keepsake pouch. If you have a preference, please be sure to let me know!
All crocheted items go out using USPS Priority Mail Boxes. The sturdier material provides more protection against pulled stitches due to automated processing.
Refunds, returns & exchanges
My shop policy is a simple one: you must be completely satisfied with your purchase or you can return it for a refund of your purchase price or exchange within 14 days of receipt. I also guarantee my workmanship during normal wear but not for abuse...yes, I will be able to tell the difference.
Materials I use [subject to change as new materials and processes are developed!]:
Metal Clay: PMC [fine silver, .999 pure], Bronze and Copper Clay, and White Bronze Clay.
Wire: Mostly anodized copper, which comes in a large number of different colors, shapes and guages, but I also use sterling silver, brass, bronze or pure copper as needed for a specific design.
Stone: For the most part, I use only natural stones in my designs including Amethyst, Agate, Onyx, Garnet, and more. If I use stones that have to be stabilized [like Turquoise] or otherwise modified they will be clearly identified as such and the modification will be noted.
Glass: Yes, sometimes I must use glass rather than stone [for example, there is no pure red [affordable] stone so a customer wanting a pure red will have the option of selecting candy red glass]. I also use dichroic glass in my PMC pieces as well as some frit...again, it all depends on the piece.
CZs: Due to the firing temperatures required for metal clay, most natural stones will literally burn up in the kiln. CZs, however, survive the firing process and look very much like the real thing.
Yarn: I use only acrylic or polyester yarn in my pieces due to a severe allergy to wool.
