Merry Christmas, Happy Hannukah and all the happiest of the Holiday Season to you! Our website is always full of beautifully artistic jewelry, handbags and gifts...and taking the Artist Tour (orange link on left) helps you view all that is available by designer/artist. We have some other helpful hints and ideas below, to help you navigate the holiday shopping experience!

See the below for Extended Gift Returns Period.

Shopping on-line is a wonderful convenience, and we have some helpful hints to make your experience satisfactory, both on our website and anywhere else you shop!

In stock, or not? For timely receipt, make sure that what you are ordering is in stock and ready to ship out now...on our website, items that have an In Stock Order button ARE available in at least a quantity of one. We ship every week day, look in the upper right corner of the Shopping Cart for estimated shipping date at the time of your order.

Returns? Check out the Return Policies on a website, just like you would in a store at home...not all policies are the same! Our policies are listed under Policies & Service, and include a gift-exchange extension if you request it when placing your order.

Image vs. actual size. Sizes and dimensions are difficult to see on a web page image, impossible to show "actual" size. Check the dimensions provided, use your ruler to compare them to something you already own. If the measurements are not clear, ask before ordering!


Delivery delays. UPS delivery guarantees apply to all packages except UPS Ground deliveries in transit between November 26-December 24...but in past years we have seen packages overall arrive on time or early! There will be periods such as December 19th and after when Next Day or Second Day will perhaps require one extra day of transit.

Delivery Days. UPS will not deliver packages Thanksgiving or Christmas Day and day after (except 1-2 Day Air services day-after). USPS delivers every day except Thanksgiving and Christmas days (even Sundays in some towns).

Domestic Priority Mail deadline is December 20th, post office quotes 2-3 days usually. First Class Mail deadline is December 20th, and generally is a little longer transit time than Priority. Neither service offers guaranteed delivery dates.

USPS Express Mail deadline for Christmas is December 22nd. Up to 2 days delivery to some locations.

US APO/FPO deadline (mail service only) is December 11th, EXCEPT zip 093xx is December 4th.

For all the above deadlines, you MUST place your order BEFORE then in order for it to actually ship by those dates. Our Shopping Cart has a Next Ship Date notice in the upper right corner.
Orders ship from Henderson, Nevada.


We have colorful Ceramics by Marcea vases, plates, bowls, decorative and functional.

We have colorful Fire & Light Glassware candleholders, vases, stems, paperweights and bowls.
