Just what I needed! Simple yet elegant and versatile. So hard to find gold and quartz crystal earrings - you mostly see silver - yet in necklaces it seems to be the opposite. I have a lot of crystal necklaces encrusted with gold - but no earrings to really go with them. Too similar and they almost clash taking away something from the other when worn together. Much too simple earrings - and again no together. These earrings are perfect - cute yet sophisticated when worn alone. When worn with my huge crystal necklaces neither detract from each-other - it just all looks put together really well.

Love it. Beautiful. Well made, weighty and it looks better than the picture.

The picture doesn't do it justice. It's just more than I expected. No joke. It's gorgeous. It's well made and classy.

About

Serendipity

After graduating college, studying art and design, I worked for many years in the fashion industry as an illustrator, stylist and art director. Then, one day, I had that “ah-ha” moment! I was asked to style a fashion show for a line of simple black bathing suits. Not finding what I wanted in the way of accessories, I decided to fabricate my own jewelry to be worn by the models. Big, bold, tribal, and flowing down to the collarbone, my 26 pairs of one-of-a-kind earrings made their debut down the runway, and ultimately, were the showstopper! Buyers, anxious to know ‘who designed the jewelry’, placed orders and provided the impetus to launch into this new career.

Designer of Wearable Art.
Magnificent natural minerals, raw, semiprecious, and polished stones, vintage glass crystals and findings, resin mesh, lavish gold leaf and patinas – all materials sculpted by Pauletta Brooks, to create her unique designs, eye-catching manifestations from a mysterious world of beauty and fantasy. Blessed with a bountiful imagination, this graduate of the Arts from both Hampshire College and The Fashion Institute of Technology shapes each piece individually, instinctively allowing the material to dictate form while always keeping in mind the function to the wearer. Her signature is unmistakable: Sculptural, organic, bold ‘signature’ pieces that often look as if they’ve been dredged up from the sea from a mermaid’s lair.
Valued for her ingenuity and original designs, her jewelry has been featured in editorials in: Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, The New York Times, New York Magazine, Details, The Daily News, and Ornament Magazine as well shown at The Folk Art Museum of New York City and the galleries at The Fashion Institute of Technology.
All handmade in New York City, each of her designs is a one-of-a-kind wearable art piece valued by all who treasure their own uniqueness.

Phew...I call that "SSP" (shameless self-promotion!!)
In any case, enjoy exploring my shop. I'm a 24/7 obsessive-creative. If I could tinker and make things all day, I would, and someday-when I untether myself from this computer, I will!

Payment
Payment is done at time of purchase. PLEASE familiarize yourself with my shop policies. I accept payment through PayPal or Direct Pay credit cards and ship after payment clears. Personal checks, paid in advance, are accepted on custom orders. Custom orders require a deposit and sale is final.
(PayPal is secure, easy to use, and you can use your credit or debit card without becoming a member of PayPal)
Pls. note: If payment is not made within 24 hours of purchase the item will be re-listed. Please read all shop policies before making any purchase and if you have any questions ~ don't hesitate to ask!
Shipping
PLEASE READ CAREFULLY!
I will ship all orders to your Etsy/PAY PAL ADDRESS unless otherwise noted. *Please send me a message if shipping address is not the same as the Pay Pal address.

Items are wrapped individually and usually shipped within 3-5 days. I ship USPS first class or Priority. I will use the smallest size box (often recycled) available for your order. Rates are general and can not be exactly calculated until I see what you have ordered and packed it into a box. Sometimes, the s/h charges are more than what is quoted on the page, so I often share some of the expense with you. If the s/h rate varies greatly from that which is specified on the rates page I may notify you about the additional cost and invoice you for any additional fees, and/or refund overpayments to you. I often choose to ship international orders using Registered mail which allows for tracking. You are free to have the s/h fees reduced by requesting, PRIOR TO ORDERING, that I ship only basic flat rate-BUT IN THAT CASE I WILL NOT GUARANTEE ARRIVAL OF THE ITEM(s) once it leaves my hands. And, unfortunately, I also have no control over the shipping times once it leaves my hands. If I could hand deliver the items to you in person I would!!
Contact me for pick up if you are in New York City.

SHIPPING INSURANCE IS OPTIONAL, and is not included in the regular price of shipping. To add insurance to your order, you may send me a convo and I will add it to your listing. I can not take responsibility for items that are lost, damaged, or stolen after shipment. This applies to both domestic and international shipments.

PLEASE NOTE: International buyers are responsible for all customs and duties fees that may be incurred. Please be advised that international purchases will be shipped as "merchandise," and the buyer is responsible for any customs/duties upon arrival. Estimate your Import Duties here:
http://www.dutycalculator.com/new-import-duty-and-tax-calculation/
Please do not make a purchase without understanding your VAT obligations. If you have any specific instructions please make sure to notify me of them! Since sellers are unable to predict what fees, if any, will be applied, Etsy does not hold sellers responsible for unexpected customs fees or taxes.
Refunds and Exchanges
If you are unhappy with any of the pieces you receive, please contact me right away. I want you to be happy! Requests for returns must be made within 3 days upon receipt of the item. I will work with you to exchange any unworn items for credit or fix anything that may have been damaged in shipping. Credit will be applied when item has been returned in good condition. *ANY ITEM BEING RETURNED MUST FIRST HAVE PRIOR WRITTEN APPROVAL FROM ME AND BE SHIPPED BACK INSURED AND WITH SIGNATURE CONFIRMATION!
Please note that many of these pieces are somewhat delicate and handmade and the materials I use are subject to some natural flaws, especially those pieces using vintage findings or minerals. Gold in the paint may, over time, oxidize a bit or rub. This can add an antique effect that I may intentionally add to some jewelry pieces. Stones and semi-precious minerals may have unusual marks. This does not mean they are "defective", just unique and beautiful, the way nature made them. Resin Mesh items should NOT be left out in the sun or exposed to intense heat.
If you should require any adjustments or repairs please email/convo me to discuss your issue. There may be a fee incurred.
Your 'Positive' feedback is always welcomed, but if you have any negative comments please address them to me directly. I aim to satisfy!
Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you will visit often.
Additional policies and FAQs
The words 'stones' and 'gem stones' may at times be used in the item description of both real (semi-precious) or imitation (crystal, glass). Please, if you are unsure, contact me for further clarification!! Generally, the price is indicative enough of what's what!
And, last, but not least, I want to thank all my beautiful models: Audrey, Marilyn, Sophia, Catherine and Grace, as well as Alex, Gaby, Adele, Barbara, Richelle, Aisha and Allegra, and photographers who have helped with some shots: Carlos Hernandez, Steve Reganato, Zoe Field and Omorphy Photos.
