About

Welcome to our tribe.

Earthly tokens for the romantic, the nostalgic, the stargazer, the wild at heart. Welcome to yūgen.
yūgen / yoo-gehn / n. : an awareness of the universe that triggers emotional responses too deep and mysterious for words
---

Previously known as "jerseymaids", yūgen was founded by Lauren Beacham in 2007, and was a creative outlet after earning her BFA in photography to bring her Polaroids and jewelry together. After 4 years of significant growth, Lauren left her job as a gallery director to run her business full time. In 2014, her husband Tyler Oyler came on board as partner and business development director. As the studio continued to grow, their wonderful studio assistant Brittany Elbourn joined the team in summer 2015. All 3 work in a small studio nestled in a tiny mountain town in northern Maryland.

We at yūgen are here to provide excellent customer service, beautiful products, and a welcoming atmosphere. We are here to celebrate the universe with you - it's literal beauty, incredible mystery, and the people and places we find as our home within it.
We're positively thrilled to have you.
Welcome to our tribe.

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

Many items are customizable. Please check our Heirloom and Cameo collections for pieces easily made with your images. Certain pieces in our other collections can also be customized if you see a button within the listing that says "Request a custom order". Please feel free to contact us with any questions.

Sizing details

Items that are in a set size cannot be resized, and those details can be found in the listing description. Items that have sizing options, or custom made in your size, can be found in a drop-down menu in the listing.

Care instructions

All of our items are individually handmade with care, but are not 100% waterproof. Please be sure to remove your jewelry if you feel they may get wet (ie. washing your hands, showering, swimming, etc.) If an item is damaged by water, it DOES NOT qualify for a return or exchange. This information is clearly stated in every listing along with the care instructions you receive with your piece.

If your piece has a shiny finish, storing it in a sealed plastic bag when not being worn will help significantly slow down the process of oxidation or tarnishing. If your piece does tarnish, it can be cleaned with a soft dry cloth or jewelry care cloth and a little elbow grease.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Each piece arrives in a stamped muslin bag. Most pieces also arrive on a jewelry card in a box as well, as long as they fit. All pieces arrive with artist and care instructions.

Wholesale availability

We do wholesale, but we do not consign. For more information, please email hello@yugentribe.com and view our information below:

Why do you issue a restocking fee when I want a refund?

As is stated in our refunds policy and in every listing from the Animal Silhouette, Galaxy, and Wild Heart collections, we donate a portion of the proceeds to charitable causes for every sale of these pieces. We set this money aside at the time of purchase, and the restocking fee covers this donation. It is non-negotiable.

What is yūgen?

The word has origins in Japanese culture and has no exact English translation. But in short, it means "our awareness of our existence in the Universe that brings on feelings so profound that we cannot express them." This encompasses our vision in so many ways. We do our work humbled by the Universe every day - the beauty and expanse, the unknown and the known, the big and the small, the abstract and the very precise, the things we cannot comprehend and the things we know and understand so intimately that it makes life worth living. The people, the places, the experiences, the planet, the universe - the big, the small, it all adds up to yūgen.

What does not qualify for a return or exchange?

*An item that was damaged by water.
*An item that was clearly determined to be tampered with or damaged purposefully.
*An item customized with an image provided by you or a cameo created from your image
*A piece was customized in a special size or length that differs from what is detailed in the listing (this includes sized sterling silver rings)
*An item you requested made from images or materials not typically sold in our shop (ie a 14k gold ring, a galaxy image not in our usual collection of available images, etc.)

All items that DO qualify for a return and a refund are subject to a 15% restocking fee. No exceptions.

What organizations do you donate to?

We love giving back! A portion of the proceeds from our Galaxy Collection goes to the Planetary Society, a portion from our Animal Silhouettes goes to the Humane Society, and a portion from our Wild Heart Collection goes to the Nature Conservancy.
