Welcome to The GYPSY MADONNA Collection! May I offer.....
YEAR MADE: 2017
ITEM: A single floral embellishment or applique for anything you can think of! I call this piece "Cherry Blossom" (another version I make) because I think that's what the single floral looks like. The blossom is of modern day pink satin (polyester) with a vintage pink ombre rayon center along with a single glass bead; the side rounds are also of pink ombre ribbon. The leaves are C.1980 dark green 100% silk and the pink/mint green sugar pips, C.1950 from Germany.
CONDITION: Brand new - entirely hand made with no glue - crinoline backing.
SIZE: 2-1/2" x 7/8"
FINAL COMMENTS: Use on any item that DOES NOT need washing - the sugar pips would not survive. Projects? Well, a dolls hat, a pair of gloves, trim on a dress, a lingerie floral, a box embellishment...... you are only limited by your imagination. (Oh, and the last photo shows some uses for the ribbon rose.)
I ship as soon as I can, usually 1-2 days within the purchase date. Sometimes there are delays but not many - usually family and the weather are the main culprits.
Payment methods accepted: Paypal (of course), cheques/checks, money orders and yes, I can do layaway. Just ask about my terms.

The following items can't be returned or exchanged
Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:
Custom or personalized orders
Perishable products (like food or flowers)
Intimate items (for health/hygiene reasons)
Conditions of return
Buyers are responsible for return shipping costs. If the item is not returned in its original condition, the buyer is responsible for any loss in value.
Additional return information
Not happy? Just doesn't work for you? Just send it back and I will offer a full refund on the purchase price only. Layaway pieces are handled a little differently - usually I apply a 15% restocking fee if the item has been "on hold" for a very long time. Most dealers do "no refunds" on either the deposits or layaway itself. I think this a little harsh as you never know what is going to crop up in the way of an emergency and sometimes a person does have to hold onto their money due to such a situation.
Right now, I don't really accept custom orders but if you e-mail me, and I have the time, I might just be able to accommodate your request!
