LapisandLimeStudio's Shop Policies
Welcome to Lapis & Lime Studio!
My creations for Lapis & Lime Studio are strongly related to my work as a graphic designer. Both are best described as classic and timeless with a strong sense of color.
Color, texture and pattern are the two main things that excite me. Whether it is a brochure for a business or institution, totes for olive designs, tshirts for oli the Berkshire Bear or bracelets for Lapis & Lime Studio, all three elements play a significant roll.
Color is a fascinating and wondrous thing. I believe there isn’t a bad color in the world, it all has to do with context and this is what I try to do…put color in a delightful context no matter what the medium. I enjoy creating texture and pattern in my graphic work. For my jewelry it is more about combinations of texture and pattern…what compliments and contrasts to create something beautiful.
The premium glass beads handmade in the Czech Republic that I use have amazing texture and color. When combined with vermeil or sterling silver beads or charms from Bali, India or Thailand they have a rich and often ancient quality as if they were excavated from Nefertiti’s tomb! I also love semi precious stones such as lapis lazuli, amethyst, onyx and carnelian. Combining these smooth beautiful stones with vermeil and silver is also quite effective and, in the case of bracelets, stack up beautifully next to the glass.
For me, it is pure joy to create these adornments and it is fun to see what other people like and the choices they make out of the collection. I like to create a variety that will appeal to a broad audience and budget without compromising quality or beauty.
As for me, I enjoy all types of art & design from the ancient to the contemporary and all things in our natural world. I adore furniture and interiors from Chippendale to Bertoia and I have a passion for Chinese export china and Olmstead gardens. I am an award winning graphic designer of primarily print and package design. My experience is long and wide and, thankfully, always evolving!

Additional Policies and FAQs
COLOR: I photograph each item and try to choose exposures that accurately describe the product. Please be aware that they look fantastic and accurate on my monitor but I cannot guarantee that your monitor will see it the same way.
SIZE: It is difficult to gauge the scale of my items from the photos. Please be sure to note the size and it is always a good idea to keep a ruler near by to check the dimensions listed.
BEAD WORLD: Each bead has its own character and may have “imperfections” and irregular shapes. This is what gives them character and individuality. This is a GOOD thing!
CUSTOMER SATISFACTION: Your satisfaction is incredibly important! Please contact me prior to leaving feedback if something is not up to your expectations. I will do what I can to fix it!
