Ready-to-Wear ♥♥♥ Custom Jewelry

Houston, Texas | 565 Sales

Announcement    Hello and welcome to my Etsy shop. We are now upon September and hopefully back to school, either at home or...at school. As a result, I'm offering a 30% off sale on everything for everyone. And, as always: free shipping within the United States. Keep your eyes open for new items being added soon!!

COSTUME JEWELRY CUSTOMERS LOOK AT ME AND PLEASE READ-IMPORTANT INFO:
Welcome to my shop!!!!! I use plastic mailers for my shipping. There is no charge for shipping in the US. If you wish to have your order sent in a box, you’ll need to opt for expedited shipping and pay for it. )

I inherited costume jewelry from my mother's collection. Though I was a silent partner of her business, I had little to do with her online costume jewelry shop. She passed away in the summer of 2018 and I, unfortunately have no idea what to do with the items except to make earring bracelets with the less valuable pieces. Please note that I'm not destroying perfectly good jewelry. The jewelry I am using is damaged in some serious structural way on the backsides (i.e. clip-on's/screw backs falling off or backs detaching from their base) and unsaleable for what its original purpose was intended. As for the things for sale: I'm probably selling them for a lot less than they're worth so, no "offers" or asking for further discounts, pretty please.

INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS please understand: I will NOT lie on customs forms and say your purchase is a gift, Our forms are automated anyway and print out what it is even as a gift and its value. You cannot escape the inevitable. My shipping is already pretty inexpensive.

… Custom orders, unfortunately, are excluded from being on sale and require a 25% deposit for orders over $20.

I am now a proud member of the SRAJD ( self representing artists in jewelry design) member #4157. So you can shop knowing that you are buying from an independent artist.


If you need something more quickly, please let me know and I can accommodate you.

If you want your order gift wrapped, please let me know, beforehand. :)

I am not responsible for lost, damaged, or stolen packages in the mail or on your doorstep. If this is a concern of yours, please request insurance. ;)

Thank you so much for your interest in my Etsy shop. I started designing jewelry in 2000 and fell instantly in love with it. In fact, I gave up a career in cultural anthropology just to follow my heart and become the artist I felt I had to be. Three of my greatest inspirations in my work are my daughter, Ellie, my husband, and my late mother (Sadly, we lost Gloria June 9th of 2018). It is with their love and support that makes this endeavor possible. Thank you so much for stopping by. If you like what you see but want something a little different, I am more than happy to offer custom orders so please feel free to inquire. Thanks again! ♥ Lara Phillips

On Etsy since 2013

Vintage and modern mix meets a variety of ecclectic influences

I've wanted to open an Etsy shop for forever but didn't know if I would be able to do it. Now knowing of course that I could, it has been a joy. I have a bunch of stones from the 1950's to work with, modern lampwork, vintage style stampings, vintage Swarovski crystals and rhinestones, gemstones, and other fantastic goodies to play with. My studio is my house here in Boise, Idaho with my husband and two cat babies, Sam and David.

    Pretty much started making jewelry in 2000 right before the birth of my daughter Ellie Amelia. Ever since then, it has been expanding and my love for the process has grown deeper and deeper. Making jewelry helps me find my inner bliss :)
