Is your jewelry available in any shops?
Currently I have a collection of Tibetan Bracelets at the Virginia Museum of Fine Art in Richmond. Aside from occasional events such as this, I mostly sell online. My local customers come to my studio to buy jewelry and if you are visiting Virginia, I would love for you to come visit me in my studio in Virginia Beach :)
Where are you located?
Virginia Beach, Virginia
Do you make all of the jewelry yourself?
Yes, I design and create all of the jewelry I sell. Most of my pieces are one-of-a-kind. Even the jewelry that is regularly available on my website will not be identical. Due to the nature and availability of the materials, each piece of jewelry will vary slightly from the original. I often include pictures of variations I have made and I can always send a picture before shipping if desired.
Do you offer payment plans?
Yes, if you would like to make payments just contact me. Let me know what you would like to purchase, how much you want the initial deposit to be, when you would like to make payments and in what amounts. I will send you invoices as requested and once the final payment is made, I will ship your jewelry out.
I cannot offer plans at sale prices.
Do you offer sales or coupon codes?
I rarely have sales. As an independent artist creating mostly one-of-a-kind items, I do not buy most of my materials in bulk. So sales are not very profitable for me. I use top quality materials and beads and gemstones, pendants and metals are much more expensive than one might think, not to mention the shipping supplies, trips to bead shows, running a website, and all of the other overhead costs. When I do have sales, I will advertise in my newsletter which you can sign up for at the bottom of the page. And I do offer a 15% off Join the TRIBE discount for signing up!
How long will it take to get my jewelry?
It depends on what you order. Anything already created will show a "# IN STOCK" right under the item title on the product pages.
All other pieces will average a week. If I have all of the materials available, it may just be a day or 2, but if I have to order some supplies it could take a week to 10 days.
If you need something by a specific date, just contact me and I'll let you know.
See my SHIPPING page for more specific details.
Once packages leave the USA, it is up to the receiving country to continue updating the tracking. I cannot be responsible for lost packages, so if you're country does not have reliable mail service, please choose DHL, UPS or FedEx for shipping.
Do you ship Internationally?
Yes, I ship worldwide. See my SHIPPING page for more details.
Where do your beads come from?
All over the world! I will often include details in the jewelry descriptions, but if you want to know about a specific item, just contact me.
Do you design custom jewelry?
YES! I love creating pieces just for my customers! About half of my business is creating custom jewelry. I have started a CUSTOM jewelry page and I also post most of my designs in my GALLERY. I also can recreate pieces you may already have; I do this quite often for my local customers who have jewelry that needs some updating or upsizing! Or if you have a pendant or special coin, etc., we can create a piece of jewelry around it.
Once I have a good idea of what you want, I will request half of the estimated amount as a deposit and then the balance once your design is perfect!
What is your return policy?
