Latest update!

June 28th:
All crystal bracelets have been repriced to $40 to match the lower price available in my Etsy shop.

In an effort to increase my focus on fantasy jewelry, I'm now clearing out a lot of beautiful items that just don't quite fit. To see what's on sale, either browse the categories, or do a search for "clearance."

Check my Etsy shop (linked below) for Daily Specials.

Postal rate increases got you down? Never fear, Erthe Fae Designs still offers free US shipping.

Frequently asked questions, and frequently given answers. If you have a question not covered here, please e-mail me!

How do I order from you?

Simple! The quickest and easiest way is to use my shopping cart, which allows you to pay with PayPal or credit card. If you would like to pay with check or MO, or are having trouble with the shopping cart, just e-mail me and let me know what item(s) you're interested in. It helps if you include the item's name, instead of a description.

Do you accept international orders?

My shopping cart is now configured to accept international orders. Please note that I only accept PayPal and credit cards for international sales, not checks or money orders.

How much do you charge for shipping and handling?

Domestic orders receive free insured first class shipping. If you need the item sooner, I also offer insured Priority mail at a reasonable fee.

What forms of payment do you accept?

My preferred payment method is PayPal or credit cards through my shopping cart. I also accept checks and money orders - please e-mail me to purchase an item if you would like to pay with one of those methods. I only accept cash if you're buying from me in person - mailing cash is a risky undertaking. Also, as previously stated, for international orders I only accept PayPal.

What about trades?

I do occasionally trade my beadwork for other things - I do love the barter system! While I usually prefer money, I would consider trading jewelry for the following types of items:

Beads, especially hand-made artisan beads or vintage beads.

Goth or belly dance clothing.

Drawings of my roleplaying characters.

Medieval weapons.

Did you really make all of this jewelry yourself?

Yes. Each and every item. And yes, it does take a goodly amount of time and patience - but so do many day jobs, and I think this is more enjoyable *grins*

Did you make all the beads, too?

No. I have neither the time, skill, nor tools necessary. I have dabbled in lampworking, but the results were so shameful that they hide in a drawer, rarely seeing the light of day.

Will you teach me how to bead?

I am open to teaching beadwork on either an individual basis, or in a bead store class environment. If you would like to learn some basic beading, or if you are a bead store owner who would like me to teach your customers, please contact me. I will however state that I am not good with kids, so I cannot teach children's classes!

How do I pronounce Erthe Fae?

Earth Fay. Simple as that.

You're making up half of these questions, aren't you?

Yes... you caught me.
