Announcement   Thanks for shopping and follow me on Instagram @peacesbylauren for more updated availability of pieces.




SHOP POLICIES:

Returns accepted within 10 days of purchase for store credit. I guarantee the jewelry for 30 days from purchase unless damage is due to accident or neglect. Peaces by Lauren is special in part to using natural minerals and crystals which are susceptible to breaking and cracking. Care should be taken with the jewelry and it should be treated gently. Babies, dogs, drinking, dancing, etc can all be potential ways to break your jewelry. Jewelry should be hung while not being used and you should avoid wearing it in water. The brass will oxidize and patina over time and this is normal. Raw brass can be polished although antiqued or purposely patinaed brass should not be polished.

I do offer repairs for the cost of shipping, any needed materials, and time. I charge $40 an hour for repairs although most repairs only take about 15 minutes. The average cost of a repair is $10 plus materials.

Shipping rates are for First Class which is the most economical yet does not include insurance. Once tracking information confirms delivery, Peaces by Lauren is no longer responsible for the item. Insurance can be requested for an additional fee.

I can't get enough of Laurens' earings! I am not much of a jewelry person except for earings (and ofcourse my wedding ring!) and I wish I could buy a new pair of her designs each month!

About

A process

At the age of six I wore ten rings on my fingers, one on each. Before that I spent 2 years sailing the South Pacific with my family on our sailboat and I learnt how to pass the days making bracelets and anklets and trading them with fellow island kids or sailors. Fast-forward 20 years and the same story is being played out in Australia, Guatemala, and Costa Rica except this time I’m selling and not trading. I awoke to the realization that people actually wanted to pay me for my creations and this payment was facilitating my travels so I went with it. When I came home I just couldn’t stop making things and experimenting and the time came when the hobby needed more of an outlet and that was when Peaces was created.

The spiritual dimensions of ornamentation existed long before Peaces existed but are still very much alive today. For many who lived lifetimes ago, adorning their physical, tangible bodies was a way to express or convey the beauty of their intangible counterpart, the human spirit. Peaces are designed to bring this culture back to life. This is done by using combinations with meaning and symbolism as well as using nature's creations as the showcase of the jewelry.

Peaces are designed by combining and assembling everything with great culture and soul. Every piece of jewelry is assembled by hand, one at a time by jewelry artist Lauren Cooley. She likes to make pieces that deeper connect the woman to herself, nature, and spirit as well as bring back a sense of connectedness to the “tribe” of similarly adorned individuals. When wearing something by Peaces by Lauren it is anticipated the wearer will feel beauty, depth, openness, peace and a sense of the energy that came through the artists hands while creating each piece individually.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
I want you to love the items you purchase! If you don't or it's not what you were hoping for I will accepts returns for a credit in the store. Returns must be made within 2 weeks.
Payment
My preferred form of payment is Paypal. Credit card payments can be made securely via PayPal without having a PayPal account.
Shipping
All US orders ship via USPS first class mail unless otherwise listed. I use a flat rate shipping method so no matter what you order or where you live the price will be the same. I do ship internationally.

Please be sure that the address you have on file with Etsy is identical to the address on file with Paypal. I ship to Paypal addresses unless other arrangements have been made (gifts that need to be sent directly to the recipient, for example). If the addresses are different, your order may be delayed or cancelled if I cannot be sure of the transactions legitimacy.

I do not assume any responsibility for items once they leave my local post office. I work hard to ensure that items are carefully wrapped and packaged. If items arrive damaged, please contact me to make arrangement for repairs. I offer free or low cost repairs on all of my items, but the purchaser must pay all shipping costs for repairs.

Tracking is included with flat rate shipping.
Additional policies and FAQs
Many of the items are made using natural minerals and stones. Because these are not synthetic they should be treated with care and stored properly. Many of the minerals and stones used are fragile and cannot tolerate being dropped, etc. Peaces by Lauren does not take responsibility for broken stones.
