About

must. be. creative.

"Really, you want me to mismatch your socks when I take them out the dryer??"... I'm sure there were more times than one when I was a kid that my poor Mom had to deliver me to school cringing because of the "amazing" outfit I had picked out for myself to wear - many of which included those infamous mismatched socks (one color was simply not enough!). But bless her, she has always supported my quirky spirit and reminds me often that some people have a genuine NEED to "create" - and that that's completely okay.

Throughout the years this need to create has manifest itself in me through elaborately decorated mud pies, finger-painted wedding RSVP cards, and now with my very own "quirky-chic" handmade jewelry line, Yellow Shoes Lane (formerly elbows designs). My jewelry was borne out of my own desire to wear great statement jewelry without having the means to purchase what I found in cute little (pricey!) boutiques. So being "creative" I set out to just make my own, and after a bit of trial and error, I felt confident enough to actually start selling pieces to the random strangers who asked "where did you get THAT jewelry?" My love for all things colorful and freespirited can't help but shine through in my designs. That's also where my name came from - I've always had a thing for wearing yellow shoes because of their quirky, carefree, joyful vibe.

I'm a native Colorado kid who grew up in the mountains west of Denver, and will always have the greatest affection for the sights, smells, and peacefulness inherent to those peaks. It was a fantastic place to grow up, and largely shaped who I am.

When I'm not making jewelry, I'm probably singing. Yes, I'm totally that crazy girl at the stoplight unabashedly singing her face off to everything from operatic arias to Journey, and of course Adele! Music is the ultimate language to me, so I relish any opportunity to create it - I also play flute, a bit of piano and electric bass, and am learning guitar.

But I also have two other jobs - one I get paid for and the other I get paid in joy - I dedicate a large amount of my time to volunteer Bible education (nothing gives me more satisfaction and joy than that, and it's "creative" in its own way, too). Giving is part of me deep down to my core, so to help people in such a powerful way gives my life true meaning and happiness.

And ice cream? Yeah, I kinda like it a bit. So much so that I had to get an ice cream maker so I could start dreaming up my own wacky flavors - avocado coconut, anyone? Crazy fun.

Love to all!
Leslie

Shop policies

Last updated on March 15, 2016
I am so excited to share my love for fun, quirky jewelry with you at affordable prices! Ranging in style from whimsical and funky to elegant and sophisticated, YellowShoesLane pieces are handcrafted out of various colors of copper or aluminum jewelry wire. The basic pattern/formation of most pieces is all done by hand - no jigs. I prefer this uninhibited creative process, and revel in the imperfections and asymmetry of the resulting product. The beads and pendants adorning the copper or aluminum wire base are primarily glass, but wood, shell, stone, and other materials are also used. Any exposed wire ends are carefully filed to prevent any irritation or snagging of clothing.

While no two pieces are exactly alike, it is generally possible to re-create a similar piece if the one you want has already sold. In most cases, matching sets of necklace/earrings/bracelet can be created if not already in stock. Or perhaps you simply want something in a different color or size than pictured - no problem! Custom orders are welcome, just contact me to discuss your ideas!

Special Note: Because every “body” is different and because of the nature of materials used, some gentle shaping of your new jewelry to your individual neck/wrist is recommended for comfort and aesthetics. Keeping your wearable art looking fabulous is very important to me!

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
  • Other Method
Payment
Paypal, direct checkout (all major credit cards), and Etsy gift cards are accepted. Payment at time of order is required. Sales tax applies to Colorado sales only.
Shipping
GENERAL
In stock items will be shipped via USPS within 2 business days upon receipt of payment, but I make every effort to ship ASAP. Your package includes a delivery tracking number and usually arrives in 2 days (although the official timeline from USPS is 2-5 days). If you need overnight or rush shipping, please contact me for a price quote.

PACKAGING
Orders are shipped in sturdy cotton/poly-fill gift boxes and placed in a bubble mailer. If ordering more than one item, please specify if you'd like each item in its own gift box or together in the same one (if reasonable).

REFUNDS FOR OVERAGE
I've tried my best to post accurate shipping costs, but sometimes there is a bit of an overage when I get the total (especially with international orders). The good news is I'll gladly refund you any overage above $1.00 if that's the case with your order.

CUSTOMS FEES
The buyer is responsible for paying any duties or taxes that may apply at customs in their home country.

CUSTOM ORDER TIMELINE
The timeline for custom orders is largely dependent on how prompt and effective the communication is between the customer and artist. I'll make every effort on my end to get it into your hands ASAP, but plan on approximately 2-4 weeks to get everything communicated and for drafts to be made and revised, etc - I want the finished piece to be as close as possible to what you've dreamed up! Some pieces can be requested and shipped within a couple days, so please ask anyway even if you don't have 2 weeks to wait - it just might be possible!
Refunds and Exchanges
Full refund of the purchase price (not shipping) will be given if the item is unsatisfactory in any way. The customer will pay return shipping charges, and refund will be given upon my receipt of item. Any returned items must be in original condition and shipped back by the customer within 3 days of receipt. Customer must include shipping confirmation (costs less than $1 USD).

If you think your purchase may have been lost or stolen during shipping, please let me know - I'll do my best to track it for you. If it is evident that your purchase will never arrive, a replacement will be sent at no additional cost to you (or a refund will be given). Keep in mind that most all of my pieces are one-of-a-kind, but usually I can replicate them to look similar to the original if needed.
Additional policies and FAQs
FAQs:

1. What procedure can I expect when ordering a custom item?

--Simply click on the "Request Custom Order" button to start - even if it's just an inquiry.
--I'll ask whatever questions I need to in order to best understand exactly what your heart desires (responding promptly is appreciated, especially if you have a deadline that I need to achieve). Pricing will be discussed in this stage as well.
--I will create a draft of your item and send you photos within the custom order conversation tool. This is your opportunity to suggest any changes you'd like to see or give your approval of completion.
--After acknowledgement of approval, I'll create a private listing for your item and Etsy will send you an email that it's ready for purchase.

2. Can I order a different name on this piece of personalized lettering jewelry?

--Yes! My lettering pieces are fully customizable, including the name/word, color of wire, color of hardware, etc.

3. I love this piece, but it's the wrong size/length for me.

--No problem! Simply send me a message by clicking the "Contact Shop Owner" button and let's talk about whatever adjustments are needed. Most are even free!
