10 things you should know about me and something intimate that changed my life...

These 10 things below are about me but not that personal. What you should know, is I lost my Mother in February 2019 on a super moon (wolf's moon). A short but impactful illness which is called CANCER. That day changed my life and the way I think about life.

My sister called and said, "Mom is in trouble" and she sent the scan which was riddles with dark, ugly markings all over her intestines and liver. You see, this day changed everything. I had not spoken to my Mother in 5 years, family crap everybody has it. A very painful time in my life but important to have had the separation. I jumped out of bed, called my daughter who also had not spoken to Mimi in 5 years, and we were on our way. My husband was shocked because he knew how this could affect me, however nothing would have stopped me. We walked into the ER and in that moment everything changed. I saw a women who was with 5 nurses surrounding her all in tears. Mom was a charmer, someone stoic, never let anything get to her. She had a life of "pollyanna moments" and she glided into this just the same way she would anything. She stared at me for a moment, her eyes glossed over and said, this is my daughter Laurie. She knew when she saw me it was bad and she was in deep trouble.

Over the next four weeks, she had surgery because we begged the doctor to help in anyway he could. Her cancer had blocked her intestines and she could not eat, so instead of her starving her to death they gave me the greatest gift so that my mom could live for a few weeks. I got to spend every single moment with her to make up for the long 5 years of not having a mom. My sister and I had given up our lives to take care of her. Hand in hand, us three had a lifetime together in those short weeks. Sometimes you need separation to have a miraculous coming together, which this was. IT was a miracle, it was my miracle.

During this time, I designed our "Stand by Me" collection. The most meaningful collection ever to my Mom, my sister and me. I made these necklaces for us and we wore them through all of it, the happy, the bad and the miraculous. This collection is Sylvia's Collection.

I am the daughter of Sylvia & Michael, the grand daughter of William, Marion, Dick and Lillian. I am here to create JOY in others lives because that is ultimately what gives me joy... Every time our little trees are worn it says, miracles can happen and creates a ripple effect of love all around the world because of my Mom, Sylvia.

1. I have 6 babies, 3 human and 3 fur babies...
2. When I turned 50 last year something happened and I have No filter and I somehow have a mouth like a sailor.
3. I eat A LOT of candy
4. My husband & I own 15 restaurants in MD, DC & VA (Urban Bar-B-Que & Brew Belly)
5. I love horses
6. I work endlessly on new designs & dream about jewelry all the time
7. I want to be a hippie one day & just travel the world
8. I can not wait to be a grandmother BUT my name will be LOLA and not Grannie
9. I really think in my head that if I see it once I can repeat it, even in BRAIN surgery
10. I have panic attacks on the Bay Bridge and can't drive over it anymore and I have a beach house which makes it difficult.

The one thing that counts is I love what I do & I love my life, husband & children... I am blessed in all ways and create and design from dreams. I know that is kind of weird but it is the absolute truth. All jewelry is created and designed with my hands. All is handcrafted in our studios in Maryland.

I am simple & authentic & definitely beat to my own drum...

Returns and exchange details
Return Policy:
If you are not completely satisfied with your purchase, Bare and Me will issue a credit or honor an exchange within 7 days from original receipt. Prior to sending back jewelry please contact us by convo to let is know your situation. No returns shall be accepted without first contacting us to first. We take great pride in our hand-crafted items as well as customer satisfaction, and therefore we are pleased to offer repair services in the unlikely event damage occurs.
*THIS DOES NOT APPLY TO ANY CUSTOMIZED JEWELRY. PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU UNDERSTAND OUR POLICIES BEFORE YOU PURCHASE.

♥CZ Jewelry--- I do not repair CZ charms and they are final sale. I can not control damage to a cz charm. Especially with bracelets. You need to be aware and careful with hitting against corners or objects. Sterling silver is soft metal. Please do not BEND or alter the shape or CZ will fall out... Please make sure to read all of my policies. No returns are excepted... I have only had one instance where the CZ charm fell out. I wear several pieces of my own collection as well as my daughters. We have yet to have an issue with any item. I have sold 100's of these pieces with no problems but I do have to note this in my policy since I have a NO RETURN POLICY...

♥Our jewelry at Bare & Me is dainty, hand crafted and we use only quality findings. It is fragile and WILL break if banged around or is not cared for. Occasionally we do have breakage, and we will repair at not cost to you. However, we do not repair jewelry for "normal wear and tear" but will repair with a cost of $75.00 and hour. If you will please convo me with the exact nature of the issue, I can estimate the cost.

♥Policy on customized jewelry including all hand stamped jewelry...
*please make sure you understand that these pieces are not engraved but hand stamped with care. You will NOT have a perfectly stamped piece of jewelry but should remember this is what makes this unique and has the character that a factory produced item would not have. YOU may see indentations on the back but I take great care and use a thicker gage to prevent severe exposure to this. You may see some flaws on the back. Also, all of my metal work has been brushed for a satin finish. You will NOT a high sheen on my metal.

♥THERE is no RETURN for CUSTOM Jewelry. Please make sure when ordering you understand the policies of Bare and Me & Lillyput Lane Design Company. We spend an enormous amount of time in customer service, design, photographing, uploading, packaging and postage. Please ask as many questions as you need to feel satisfied with your custom listing. Work will not begin until listing is paid.

♥Jewelry Care:
Sometimes jewelry can become dull. I do package most gifts in a plastic baggie, to prevent dullness. Earring, necklaces should be hung to prevent getting tangled. If your jewelry does become dull, a quick, easy and safe way to clean is with warm water, toothpaste and a soft toothbrush. Gently clean your jewelry with a down ward stroke. It should sparkle right up... Pat dry with cotton towel.
*On vermeil products, please be extremely gentle, vermeil is sterling silver with 24K overlay.
