About holistichem

Sales 175
On Etsy since 2014

Welcome to Holistichem...

We are Sharon and Lorraine Pitman, sisters, makers of crystal jewellery and holistic therapists specialising in wellbeing. We are also authors of Holistichem Wellbeing Method. Having established Holistichem in 2012, focusing on all aspects of wellbeing, we also make a range of wellbeing jewellery. Sharon has a degree in fashion design and has always been interested in craft and design and Lorraine soon developed a shared love of bead crafting. Together we have both studied, and have an understanding of, crystals and their healing properties, as well as jewellery design. Additionally, we are both Reiki Practitioners and enjoy combining this energy healing with crystals.

We are both passionate about the link between creativity and wellbeing and this led us to create our range. We use quality semi-precious gemstones, which as well as looking lovely, are also thought to have a wellbeing effect. We hope you will enjoy wearing our jewellery as much as we do creating each piece!

We are based in Scotland, UK and are happy to ship worldwide. We are pleased to undertake custom work and welcome your queries.

Please note that gemstone meanings do not constitute healthcare information.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalised orders

We also provide custom orders. We can create beaded bracelets/necklaces using a variety of semi-precious gemstones, bead type, colours, sizes and length. Please see our shop for examples of the style of jewellery we make. If you have any of your own beads, we may also be able to work with you to create a custom piece of beaded jewellery. We can also make more than one bracelet/necklace, making this ideal for party/wedding favours and thank you gifts for wedding party members, etc. Simply send us a message to discuss this with us. Upon request, we will provide you with a price and estimated timescale for any custom order.

Sizing details

All our bracelets will fit a wrist size of approximately 6.5/7" (16.51/17.8cm). Our necklaces measure approximately 18" (45.72cm). This measurement does not include any pendant size. Due to being a handmade item, please note that each piece of jewellery may have slight variances such as length, size, shape, etc. If required, we can make our jewellery smaller/bigger. If you wish a different size to that stated on the item description, simply contact us for a custom order and we will let you know if the length you require is feasible in the stone of your choice.

Care instructions

We do not recommend that you expose jewellery to contact with water such as showering/swimming as well as cosmetics such as oils/perfume. Allow cosmetics to dry for at least 10 minutes before putting on. Plated jewellery is best stored in a jewellery box/airtight container and cleaned with a dry, soft cloth/polishing cloth suitable for silver plating. Please note, all metals are prone to tarnishing, however, the correct care may help to prevent this. We are not responsible for the condition of any items once worn. Whilst handmade to a high standard, each piece should be handled with care. Jewellery can be very delicate and it is advisable to avoid pulling it/rolling it on and off without unfastening it as this can weaken it.

Nickel safety

We endeavour to make all our jewellery nickel safe. We source our components from suppliers who comply with EU law that states that any item intended to come into direct and prolonged contact with the skin must contain less than 0.05% nickel. This allows these metals to be classed as nickel-free as well as lead and cadmium-free. However, we can not 100% guarantee that trace amounts are not present and, therefore, would advise caution/avoidance if there is a known sensitivity to these metals. Please note, if we have stated that a jewellery piece is nickel/lead/cadmium safe, then we have purchased our raw materials in good faith from our reliable supplier that these comply to the above regulation.

Gift wrapping and packaging

All orders are packaged into a small letterbox-friendly cardboard box for posting. Our handmade packaging includes care instructions and gemstone meaning.

Shipping information

We ship orders within 1-3 working days. Please allow extra time if purchased at weekends or UK public holidays. Shipping within the UK is made via first class Royal Mail and should arrive within 1-2 working days subject to delivery delays out with our control.

Please note: At present, due to current global circumstances, we have taken the decision to suspend international delivery to avoid delays for our customers. Thank you for your understanding.

Wholesale availability

We welcome small-scale wholesale enquiries. Please send us a message if you wish to discuss the possibility of any wholesale orders.

Gemstone information

All of our jewellery is made using crystals/gemstones. Be using silver plated metals, we can offer genuine stones at an affordable price. We source our beads from a reliable supplier that sells high-quality crystal/gemstone beads. Please note that some stones may have been through a refining process to make them compatible with jewellery making. For example, some beads may be dyed/heat-treated.

Each piece of jewellery is cleansed with Selenite. If desired, customers can cleanse/programme the semi-precious gemstones upon receipt of purchase. However, we don't recommend that you use any methods involving water as this may harm some gemstones as well as the metal materials used.

Additional information

Please note that each bracelet/necklace is unique due to the natural variations of the beads/crystals. Colours may vary slightly with actual item compared to the image shown. Screen resolutions on devices, such as PC's, tablets and smartphones, can also affect the colours displayed. For example, colours may look brighter or more intense due to photography, lighting, etc. You will receive a brand new bracelet/necklace, therefore, this will differ slightly from photograph shown. As each piece is one of a kind, colour discrepancies may occur.

Whilst we aim to replenish our stock, it is not always possible to obtain every bead type/component we have previously used as this is dependent on the availability of each gemstone/component.

Recycling information

We encourage our customers to recycle our packaging. For example, all cardboard and paper products are suitable for recycling. We use card/paper from sustainable sources and all packaging pellets/cellophane bags used are biodegradable. Recyclable tape is used for packaging all orders. We provide printed crystal meaning and care instructions with all orders. This can be recycled or retained for information.

Reiki information

Our jewellery range is made with love, care and positive intention. We reiki-charge all of our jewellery. This infuses the bracelet/necklace with healing energy to serve the wearer’s highest good. Crystals/gemstones can absorb energy on a vibrational level. We cleanse each piece with Selenite crystal due to it’s purifying effect and then reiki-charge it. Reiki is a loving and healing universal energy and can do no harm. We reiki-charge our jewellery so that the wearer can benefit from this positive energy as they wear it. Please note that we are qualified and insured Reiki Practitioners.

Delivery costs

We offer free standard delivery within the UK for orders over £25. We aim to keep our shipping costs reasonably priced and in accordance with Royal Mail pricing.
