Where can I buy your work?
When do you restock your online shop?
I do not have a fixed schedule for restocking my online shop. Beadwork is a slow, thoughtful process, and I like to take a lot of breaks from selling to work on new designs. On top of restocking my online shop, I spend my time working on other projects and hobbies. I schedule my restocks based on when it is best for me to do so. I will always post on my Instagram page when I update my online shop, so follow me on there to stay up to date!
Do you take custom orders?
Occasionally, yes! I am very happy to consider custom orders - it just depends on my work/personal schedule at the time of your email. I love creating new designs that might be personal and meaningful to you. I am also open to recreating older designs. I appreciate at least a months notice when placing a custom order, however I can sometimes take a last minute order depending on the situation/my schedule. I accept custom order inquiries via email. In your email, please include:
• your name and a little about yourself
• what you're hoping to order
• what designs and colours you would be interested in
• the desired timeframe to receive your order
• your budget
• any reference photos that would help me visualize what you'd like
• any information that you think would be helpful for me to fulfill your order
Please note that I will not recreate another artists' work.
Can you let me know when you have time for a custom order?
Unfortunately, no. I have many people asking to place orders, and keeping track of who to contact when I open up spots for custom orders does not work for me.
What are your findings made of?
I use hypo-allergenic findings such as sterling silver and 14kt gold plated findings. I will always list what kind of findings are used in the piece in the product description page. If you require a certain type of finding that is not listed, I am happy to switch them out - please make your purchase as usual and we will coordinate via email after you purchase. This includes clip ons, or kidney hooks for stretched ears.
Do you ship internationally?
Yes! Shipping rates apply accordingly.
What is the best way to be notified about when your products will be available?
I recommend keeping up to date with me on Instagram. I will always post about when I will be having sales.
Do you supply wholesale/consignment to stockists or retailers?
No. Unfortunately, I cannot afford the cut that these agreements often require. In some cases; such as special opportunities/online marketplaces, I will consider it. If you would like more information about this please send me an email!
Do you run workshops?
I will occasionally run group workshops for up to 10 people and personal beading lessons for 1-3 people. I expect fair compensation for teaching workshops and lessons. I offer two types of workshops:
• Handweaving (brick stitch/fringe earrings) - participants of any background welcome. I believe that handweaving is a way that everyone can enjoy beading, with the expectation that Indigenous designs will NOT be appropriated.
• Two needle flat-stitch - I prioritize Indigenous participants for two needle beading workshops.
Please email me if you are interested in me having me host a workshop, or interested in beading lessons.
Do you do repairs on broken piece/replace lost pieces?
I will always repair a broken piece and I am happy to replace a lost piece, it is never fun to lose or break something that is unique and handmade. If you lose a piece or need a repair, do not hesitate to reach out to me and we can negotiate a fair price or an agreement.
Can I use your designs as an inspiration for my work?
Absolutely, HOWEVER - please ask me before hand and credit my work. I am very happy to share my designs as inspiration for those who ask.
If we have talked about using my design as inspiration and you'd like to sell your finished piece, please ask me first. I am not okay with others profiting off of my designs, without having a conversation about it first.
My designs are not meant to be patterns, and are not meant to be copied without my consent. I find this hurtful and offensive.
Can I wear your pieces if I am non-Indigenous?
Yes. My pieces are to be enjoyed by everyone, they are not considered regalia.
