About

Crown of Life Gems was a natural...

I guess it all began when I was a wee one running around my grandmother's house and foraging through every drawer and closet...every thing of antiquity fascinated me to my very core(much to my mother's chagrin)...I loved anything with a story - who wore it? Where did they go while wearing it? Did they have super amazing lives and adventures? I had to know...

Then as a teen in the eighties, I passed by a vintage clothing shop and went in...I spied the loveliest satin wedding gown from the 1940s and it was love at first sight...after my second visit of just staring(and possibly drooling) the sales lady said I could have it for a 'song'...I ran all the way home thinking how it had to be mine for prom and well, the rest is history;)

I've dabbled in jewelry making, costume design in theatre, and just about anything else that revolved around these loves of mine...Etsy however, was the perfect place to land after becoming a mom of my sweetest earthly treasures - Emma, Gabriel, Mia and Lena...
Mia and Lena love to help Mommy out in the barn studio and my Emma lends her lovely hands and earlobes for displaying many of the 'lovelies' in the shop!

We love rummaging in estate and barn sales here in the Midwest so if you're ever in search of something specific, please don't hesitate to let me know...Thanks again for visiting today and I pray you'll find an heirloom to cherish!

    I'm a bit of an eccentric who loves creating jewelry and textile arts and who happens to have 4 of the neatest babes ever born... I adore finding, making, and photographing the pieces you'll experience here...

I ship all items out First class USPS with delivery confirmation in bubble wrapped envelopes and in most cases in a jewelry gift box. If an item is especially fragile or expensive it is also insured to cover my expenses should anything occur in transit-this will be listed as such in the listing and reflected in the shipping costs.

I will gladly accept returns and will refund purchase price plus half of original shipping costs IF you will do the following: CONTACT/email me within 4 days of receiving your purchase with the reason for return (I cannot accept a buyer's remorse return or in case of it not being the right size/color) - I'll also need you to return it within 2 Weeks in the same or similar packaging and insure it/add delivery confirmation to ensure its safe return to me - this protects both of us;) IF you must cancel a layaway purchase you will be refunded your total paid minus 20% for restocking/shop exposure loss - thanks!
