About

Eccentric and elegant assemblages are my specialty!

Originals by Lynnette was founded out of a simple love of baubles and beads.

I began jewelry making as soon as my fingers were nimble enough to string macaroni on a thread. I'd like to think that after years of practice and fine tuning, my work has become much more than something only my mother could love. (By the way, even she didn't hold onto those pieces for too long.) I became serious about my jewelry making for others in the late 90s when people started asking me where I was getting my jewelry.

I experience a thrill each time I find a beautiful vintage piece that I know will become the focal point of my creations. Part of what I love is the treasure hunting, and I will keep a piece until the perfect combination presents itself.

I was always intrigued by the musty smelling boxes of tins, trinkets and magazines in my grandparents' basement. I would infuriate my mother by my inability to throw anything away... I saw artful potential in the ribbons that came from packages, or the designs on cardboard gift boxes. I continue to search for the unusual, or find ways to recycle and upcycle common items into pieces of beauty and intrigue.

I expanded my work to incorporate vintage jewelry when I didn't know what to do with all the single treasures I'd uncover at flea markets and thrift stores. I felt like I was giving new life to abandoned jewels. I was once gifted several boxes of "craft" jewelry from a retiring jewelry maker who was clearing out her storage space. I have been a die-hard vintage lover ever since!

I am honored by every order I receive; to be able to create a piece that will become a part of someone else's world brings me great pleasure. Each piece is a work of love... crafted as if I was making it for a dear friend, and sometimes for myself. Many of my designs are created with certain people in mind. All of them allow me to live a little vicariously, passing along my passion to others.

In 2013, I left an abusive marriage, rescuing my children, myself and my desire to create. As a survivor of domestic violence, my perspective on the world has changed. I am able to celebrate the beauty of the world around me with a heart full of gratitude. Each order I receive further cements my belief in myself and helps me cover the costs of art and music instruction for my children. I spent a year recovering, a year growing and now shift my focus in 2016 to achieving my personal goals for my shop.

Thank you for taking the time to get to know me and my work! And, thank you for supporting my art.

    Crafting since I can remember, making and designing jewelry since the mid 1990s. I started Originals by Lynnette in earnest when I couldn't "feed" my habit or store the jewelry I was making.

"I'd rather wear jewels in my hair than anywhere else. The face should have the advantage of this brilliance." -Hedy Lamarr

I am always thrilled to run across people who share the same love of vintage and "old" things that I have.

I was always intrigued by the musty smelling boxes of tins, trinkets and magazines in my grandparents' basement. I've always hoarded jewels and vintage goodness. I started incorporating vintage pieces into my work about eight years ago when I was given boxes and boxes of
"craft" jewelry from a jewelry maker who was closing up shop. I was hooked. One vintage rolo chain, some glass beads... I haven't stopped since!

PLEASE NOTE:

International orders ship via USPS International. I retain a copy of the customs form number for my records. International orders ship twice a week. On rare occasions, items may be held up in customs. It is recommended you purchase insurance and give yourself ample time for shipping. All international orders ship as "Merchandise" or "Commercial" and not as gifts. the buyer is responsible for understanding their country's import taxes and duties, and paying them when collecting packages.
BUYERS are responsible for VAT tax and a applicable mail fees when their item comes into their customs office. I CAN NOT REFUND SHIPPING COSTS for items returned due to UNPAID CUSTOMS FEES.


I am happy to provide expedited shipping per your request. It would be helpful if you made the request prior to payment so I could adjust the posting. Otherwise, I will send a revised invoice for postage. Simply include instructions during checkout. Shipping price includes shipping confirmation for all domestic packages. I highly recommend purchasing shipping insurance for international packages.

If I happen to have miscalculated the amount, or because you purchased several items that could be conveniently combined, I will refund ant gross overcharges for shipping, or provide an upgrade to priority.

I am not responsible for items lost in the mail. I purchase delivery confirmation for all domestic shipments. I retain tracking information for all domestic shipments and postal customs form numbers for all international shipments.
Refunds and Exchanges
Returns: All sales are final. I take pride in my work want you to be 100% satisfied. I guarantee all items against defects in workmanship. I will complete repairs upon receipt for up to one year after the purchase date at no charge. However, much of my jewelry is special occasion jewelry, and for personal use (earrings, hair accessories). I do not accept returns for these items. I will happily provide repairs for items damaged in transit. I package items carefully, therefore, there is little chance of damage during shipping.

I do not provide refunds for misdirected and/or lost mail. I get delivery confirmation on all orders shipped within the US. If the Post Office has lost a package, it is your responsibility to file a lost package claim. If you wish to insure your package, please notify me prior to shipping and I will bill you for the charge.
