FAQ

All items are handmade, most are one-ofs. For one-of items, you will receive the exact item shown. Care is taken to relay as much information about each piece and it's elements, however, colours may be slightly different from images due to different monitors and their settings.

I want you to love and wear your portable art! Please contact me if a piece is *almost* what you're looking for, I may be able to make a small adjustment depending on the request.

Custom designs can be made for pieces with specific embellishments, within a theme, multiples, or to go with other pieces you currently own. Designs tend to have some back-and-forth discussion, and once a design's basics have been agreed on, 50% of the item's cost will be due as a non-refundable deposit. This deposit covers materials and design time. When a piece is complete, the balance must be paid before the item will be shipped. Items not paid for after 15 days of completion will be put up for general sale.

Every artist puts a lot of time and heart into their work; skill is hard-earned experience with true value. You may ask for a new piece inspired by another artist, but do not ask me to copy another artist's work. If you love a piece made by someone else please support their efforts and buy from them! In the same vein, please do not ask others to copy my work.
