About TheGhostGeneration

Sales 210
On Etsy since 2020


It's an ages old story: boy meets girl, boy marries girl, boy and girl have baby...and then we found ourselves on our own. Our family disappeared, the culture that said, "get married, have babies" didn't particularly care once you've done those things and goodness me, don't say it's hard to raise kids or that you need help because we're concentrating on the next round of people getting married!

Long story short, we found ourselves with two babies under the age of 2.5 and no village.

And so, The Ghost Generation came to be just so we had an outlet. It started life as a blog in 2019, featuring video game reviews and interviews with musicians. Then, Aaron wanted to stretch his ears again and decided to see if he could make his own plugs (spoiler: he succeeded). After experimenting with epoxy resin, glitter and lots of moss (!), The Ghost Generation Etsy store was born late October 2020, right in the midst of a worldwide pandemic and catered to a wide variety of people looking for alternative jewelry.

Laura decided to join four months later (after weeks and weeks of testing different formulas and researching safe ways and ingredients to create products) with natural bath and skincare products with no nasty chemicals and preservatives as she had suffered from sensitive skin her entire life and unfortunately her kids had inherited that same difficult skin. She wanted bath time to be fun for her kids and her skin to be soft with minimal effort as two little kids still took up a lot of Aaron and Laura's time. The final products were fun smelling, 100% vegan, with no preservatives or phthalates, and the ability to cure dry skin in a few days.

2021 also saw a change for Aaron. As wonderful as plugs are, if you don't have stretched ears you can't wear them. Branching out to rings, keychains and necklaces, Aaron honed his craft to create little worlds in tiny spaces.

So, The Ghost Generation doesn't ask you to be anything but yourself. You deserve one of a kind jewelry and you also deserve to not put chemicals and preservatives all over your skin. So why not come to one shop to treat yourself?

Our founding principles are putting 110% into everything we make, making our products affordable for anyone who wants to enjoy them, and building a sense of community around The Ghost Generation. Come join us.

Frequently asked questions
Does The Ghost Generation accept returns/offer refunds?

The Ghost Generation now accepts returns/exchanges for all of our items EXCEPT FOR our custom orders. We do extensive quality control and list each item we sell individually to ensure what you order is 100% what you get. Each item goes through an additional inspection prior to shipping to ensure ALL is well before your order leaves our hands. Should you be unhappy with your order for any reason please contact us directly and if applicable we can arrange to replace your product with something you'll be happy with. Our goal is 100% good reviews and 100% customer satisfaction so we approach everything we make in that mindset, no exceptions. If you're not happy, talk to us- we'll make it right, your money is safe here, no BS from this shop.

Is what you see what you get from The Ghost Generation?

Absolutely, 100%! We list every piece of jewelry we make INDIVIDUALLY (unless otherwise noted) so you can see exactly what will be arriving at your doorstep when you place an order with us. Due to the handmade nature of our products there can be very small imperfections (microbubbles, occasional uneven surfaces, etc.) but it is a part of the art and unless egregious it is not a flaw. Ditto for our bath/skincare products & clothing. We do our best to ensure every product we sell is as close to perfect as humanly possible, but again- if something isn't up to what you feel is our proudly-high standards please contact us and we can find a solution together.

How should I clean/take care of my rad new plugs/jewelry?

For plugs- a little soap and water is perfectly fine. Jewelry? Same way you take care of your other jewelry, you got this! Sculptures, collectibles, and magnets? Come on now, you're a grown-up. Clothing? If you can't do laundry by now I'm afraid I can't help you.

Do you take custom orders?

YES*! It’s super easy- just click the “Request Custom Order” button (should be on the left side of our home page) OR just message us directly to get the conversation started. Sometimes the button doesn’t show up but we’re ALWAYS up for making custom jewelry, keyrings, etc. so don’t hesitate to shoot us a message!

*Custom orders not available on bath/skincare products.

Are The Ghost Generation's bath/skincare products safe for me & eco friendly?

All of our bath and skincare items are 100% Vegan. None of our items contain products that have been tested on animals or are animal-derived. We post the ingredients of every product in the listing so things are 100% transparent for you. We keep everything as simple & natural as possible, preservative-free, and we only use recyclable/eco-friendly packaging. Please be sure to read the ingredients list when shopping to prevent any unwelcome interactions if you have sensitivities but generally speaking our products are safe for pretty much everyone. Extensive testing was done pre-launch on ourselves and a select group of wonderful people and the only things anyone had to say were "WE WANT MORE!!!". Rest easy!

Does The Ghost Generation offer Free Shipping?

Yes, we offer domestic U.S.P.S First Class shipping on EVERY order in our store and it's FREE if your order is over $35. If you need Priority or Express as a shipping option, please message us BEFORE placing your order so we can create a custom listing for you. International shipping is not included.

Are your plugs safe for my stretched lobes?

Yep! Our plugs are completely safe for your healed, stretched lobes. Epoxy resin, when cured, is an inert plastic & totally harmless. 316L surgical steel is hypoallergenic for almost everyone as well. That said, individual sensitivity can occur so it's on you to know what you can/can't put in your lobes.
