hello, your artwork is amazing! I just have one question, How do you ship them without them being damaged? I shipped one of mine, and I thought had wrapped it very well... well, two days later, I get a message and a picture from the customer. The sculpture was BROKEN! and more than just a little crack. it was shattered. If you could help me with any hints, thank you so much! Thank you for your time.

Thank you!

I'm not sure what you're shipping - charms or sculptures - so I'll go over how I pack each.

Charms and jewelry are easy - they just go into my packaging and then into a bubble mailer. Anything with glass or fragile pieces goes into either a pillow box, or, like in the case of post earrings, into a small jewelry box so nothing gets crushed and bent out of shape while in the post.

Larger and more fragile items, like my ponds and dragons, are wrapped in a couple of layers of bubble wrap. I then pack them in small boxes (I use mug boxes - they're 4"x4"x4") and use packing tissue to line the box to make sure they don't move around when they're in transit.

I don't know if you're using clay, but polymer clay is really durable when baked, so if it's completely shattering, you might want to make sure you're baking it long enough. Under baked clay will be more brittle and prone to shattering.

All of your crafts look amazing! >U<
I love your pond crafts, there so neat and cool! :)
But quick question, what are you using to make the water part of the pound? I would like it make one myself.

Your art is really amazing! I want to ask for a commission but I want to know the prices first.... How much would a pond, a necklace, a charm or earrings be? I'm thinking about getting something for my mom and sisters

Thank you! Just note me with what you're looking for exactly (with sizes and pictures - if you have them, they're a huge plus!) and I can give you a quote. :)
