About HyggeJewelryLab

Sales 3,417
On Etsy since 2017

I was inspired to start Hygge Jewelry Lab when I was searching for minimalist jewelry that was comfortable to wear and easy to put on and take off. I couldn't find anything I liked so I decided to go back to some jewelry making skills that I had not used in a few years!

I love to take one type of bead at a time and let the design, color and finish of the bead speak for itself. I usually only use one bead type through the whole piece. My designs are uncomplicated and easily worn by themselves or in layers or stacks.

The jewelry is easy to put on and take off and is ideal for someone who likes to make their accessorizing time quick or for someone in need of a simpler design for ease of use.

I source my materials domestically as well as importing them from the finest makers around the world. I curate and edit the materials to work together and create simple, minimalist pieces that are fresh and different.

Hygge is the Danish word that loosely translates to fun and cozy. I want jewelry to be fun and cozy and the experience of selecting and wearing it should be as well. I make each piece by hand in my home, which also makes it a fun and cozy experience for me!

LAB is my initials, and I've always loved how my initials actually spell a word! The fact that a lab is a space where scientific experiments take place makes it even cooler as I've always been a hobby science nerd. I love to experiment with different types of beads and components and of course with different pieces of jewelry! I hope you have fun experimenting too.

I'm so glad you found my shop and I hope you have fun experimenting with a new way to wear jewelry. I hope you find something that you really love!

Thank you for supporting a Wisconsin maker!

Frequently asked questions
Wholesale availability

Please contact me for wholesale availability.

Custom and personalized orders

Custom and personalized jewelry is not returnable. This includes bead choices and custom chain lengths. Please choose custom options carefully.

Care instructions

My jewelry will not tarnish quickly under occasional, light use. It is sterling free so it will not tarnish like sterling, and it is coated with an anti-tarnish coating. All metals tarnish over time but mine will tarnish slower than sterling.

Keep your jewelry away from chemicals, cosmetics and liquids such as oils, swimming pools, hot tubs, makeup, perfume, sunscreen and insect repellents. Remove before bathing, showering, and sleeping. Tarnished jewelry is not eligible for return.

Metal can bend when pushed. Always hold the solid metal portion of jewelry to put on or take off. Never twist or hold the bead as the ring it is on can open. Glass beads are breakable when dropped. Take care with your glass beaded jewelry.


Earrings are an intimate item and are not returnable due to hygiene laws. Please make your purchase carefully.

Returns must be approved ahead of time. Contact me for approval. If your return is approved, I will give you the return address. Unapproved returns will not be refunded.

Approved returns must be sent with the product packaging including card and box. Jewelry must be in perfect condition and unworn. Jewelry that is broken or tarnished is not eligible for return because once it is yours it is out of my control, and because I am a small business that is unable to resell less than perfect jewelry.

Returns from purchases that qualified for free shipping will be refunded the purchase price minus the standard shipping fee.


Repair Policy:
Delicate, fine jewelry can break from time to time from daily use and from accidents. I can usually do repairs on jewelry that you purchased from me. Please contact me so I can determine if a repair is possible. I will not repair jewelry that is not mine and I will not repair anything without prior approval.

$5 basic assessment/repair/listing fee. If all it needs is a simple jump ring or bead to be re-attached, this will likely be the fee. Fees vary depending on any parts that need to be replaced. Shipping starts at $3.50.

If you are in need of a repair, please contact me via convo with a photo of your jewelry.


I strive to ship your items out as quickly as I can. Because of this I do not accept cancellations.
