You never know what to expect from Scrap & Lace! Creator Mel works with a variety of upcycled materials, creating beautiful new shiny things. An Architect by trade, she takes her eye for design and her love of improving things and combines them to make beautiful and unexpected combinations in jewelry, knitwear, and art. While Mel has been crafting her whole life, Scrap & Lace is her new brainchild – and she's hoping to make an impact on Chicago one beautiful piece at a time.

“Upcycle” and “sustainability” have gotten a lot of hype over the years, and for good reason! For Mel, it all started with an architectural product library that was going to be thrown away. Instead, it became necklaces and earrings. Then coffee filters and bags turned into wall art. Now? The anything is up for grabs.

Returns and exchanges
Sometimes things are not quite as we expect sadly, and I would like to help whenever possible!

If received broken and is deemed unrepairable I will try my hardest to send a replacement that is close ascetically (I will communicate via email with pics of replacement prior to shipment) But please keep in mind every piece is unique and my materials vary greatly.

If the item isn't what you were expecting and would like to return it, you can send it back to me to receive a refund (minus cost of shipping) once the item is received in the condition it was sent I will credit your account in the same way it was purchased. If the item is received damaged I may have to reduce the refund on a scale of the damage

Items valued at over $35 have tracking #s and can be tracked in case of missing packages. If you would like tracking on an item less than $35 please ask! otherwise I will not be responsible for missing packages
If you contact me to cancel before I have let you know the item has shipped you will received a full refund. If the item has already shipped please see the refund policy section
I try to re-use packaging- boxes, bubble wrap, envelops... whenever possible. If you need an item as a gift please let me know and I can send in new packaging in a little box as well!

Items valued at over $35 will have tracking #s and insurance that will be sent to you once shipped out!
Additional policies and FAQs
Keep in mind all items are hand made and unique! Little imperfections and quarks are what make an item unique, please keep this in mind!
