About halffullLA

Sales 2,576
On Etsy since 2016

The story behind half full LA.

half full LA started with a desire to use my hands and stay out of trouble. True story. I have always been a hands on person. My love for working in my garden, sewing, and knitting led me to jewelry making. I would often see jewelry that I liked, but it would be too expensive or made out of cheap materials. I wanted to make jewelry that was made from quality materials, but accessible. From that, half full LA was born.

All of my beaded jewelry is handmade in my little studio on the beachy side of LA. All of my jewelry is made from quality components. All of my hardware is either gold filled or 14k gold unless otherwise specified. I make an effort to know my suppliers to ensure the integrity of my product.

All of the jewelry I sell is jewelry I wear. I make myself one and then make more for others to enjoy!

Some people ask me why I don't hire other people to help. I continue to make my own jewelry because it is a form of meditation mixed with art. It allows me to be still mentally but use my hands. All of my pieces come from a place of love and a desire to look at the glass as half full. Hopefully, a little bit of peace and happiness gets transferred to you when you wear it. That is my hope for you.

“Gold Filled”
What does gold filled even mean?!?! Gold filled is an actual layer of gold-pressure bonded to another metal. Gold filled is not to be confused with
gold plating as filled literally has 100% more gold than gold plating. Gold filled
is much more valuable and tarnish resistant. It does not flake off, rub off or
turn colors. As a matter of fact, anyone who can wear gold can wear gold
filled without worries of any allergic reaction to the jewelry.

Frequently asked questions
What if my item has been shipped but I haven't received it in a while?

Etsy insurance won't let me file a claim until something has not been delivered 30 days from shipment in the US or 45 days internationally. I will not be able to refund until this time. The pandemic has affected delivery times. Thank you for your patience and understanding!

I want my item to be shipped to the UK. I also know that USPS will not insure jewelry being sent there. What are my options?

Well, glad you asked! I still ship items to the UK. I will contact you prior to shipping that you understand that I cannot insure items being sent there. As a result, you will not receive a refund for items lost or stolen. I recommend choosing International Priority for better tracking.
