About

Peace, Love, Crystals, and Wanderlust!

I've always been drawn to nature and plagued by a never-ending need to explore it! Nature remains my main source of inspiration. I love travel, hiking, rockhounding, and connecting with our beautiful planet.

I've been studying crystals and their unique properties for many years now, and my passion has now become my living. I'm constantly learning and bettering myself. I absolutely love sharing my knowledge of these beautiful stones with others.

Somewhere along the line, a modern-day hippie emerged with a lust for creating and a strong desire to work with these beautiful pieces of nature. I met a wonderful man that supports my dream. We currently live in St. Louis, and we travel around the country in our VW campers every chance we get!

I strive to source the crystals and stones I offer from ethically and sustainably responsible sources. Since I travel so often, I'm able to locally source the majority of the crystals in my shop! A responsibility to our planet and the people on it is most important to me!

I ensure quality, environmentally responsible products so you can shop with confidence!

I use only the finest materials and strive to provide accurate photographs of all of my pieces. All photos are taken in natural light, so what you see is what you get! I create jewelry that I would wear myself and I guarantee its quality.

~Buyers are responsible for any customs fees, taxes, and so on that may be incurred. These fees are levied by your own country and not by Katie's Basement. I will however be sure to state only the actual value of the item on the declarations from and not the price plus shipping.
~Please be aware of your countries laws before ordering and be prepared for any fees or taxes that are your responsibility.

I make it my personal mission to ensure my packaging and shipping materials are as eco-friendly and sustainable as possible. As of now, my shipping materials are 100% recyclable and made from 95% post consumer waste. How awesome is that?

Please recycle/reuse what you don't keep! Help me save our planet :)
Refunds and Exchanges
The most important thing to me is that you are 110% happy with your purchase.

If you receive your item and for some reason it's just not for you... Let me know! We'll arrange for you to send your order back (within 7 days). Once I receive the jewelry and all packaging materials, I will gladly refund your purchase price.

I also provide free repairs for a 2 week period after you receive the item. I'm so confident of my jewelry's construction quality, that If during this period the item becomes damaged from normal wear I will repair it at no additional charge. After this 2 week repair period, I will repair all items for a small fee. This goes for resizing too! If you would like a different size, just holler and I'll be happy to resize it for you for a minimal materials fee.

NATURAL WEAR: Because many of my crystal necklaces are made from hemp, a "How to Care for your Hemp" information sheet is included that provides tips to get the most out of your natural necklace. As hemp is a natural fiber, it doesn't last forever ( Usually somewhere around 4/5 months on the low end up to years on the high end depending on care/type of wear/weight of stone).. One of the reasons I choose to work with it! It's extremely eco-friendly! Depending on wear, hemp can deteriorate more quickly if not properly handled... BUT all hemp necklaces will eventually deteriorate due to the natural nature of the fiber.

I offer re-wrapping of necklaces with a minimal re-wrapping + shipping fee in case you outlive the life of your natural, eco-friendly fiber :) Contact me for pricing on your exact piece! I usually charge around $15 for a rewrapping fee.
Additional policies and FAQs
Each item is shipped in a unique gift box. Hemp items arrive with a "How to Care for Your Hemp" information card.

A true hippie at heart, I have the utmost respect for our planet and our impact while we are here. That is why the majority of my shipping materials are 100% recyclable or made from recycled materials. I am very proud of my eco-friendly shipping and encourage you to re-use or recycle your packaging.

Custom items are more than welcome and greatly encouraged! I love the creativity and inspiration I gain from the suggestions of my customers, so if you do not see anything here you like, please let me know how I can accommodate you. I love to collaborate.

Is my jewelry perfect for your boutique? Wholesale orders are welcome. Please send me a convo or email and we can discuss possibilities!

Thank you again for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed your time in my shop!

peace and love,
Katie
