About

Laurel Moon: an odyssey into cultures past and present

As a child, I was fascinated with stories from the past. I loved reading Greek, Norse, and Polynesian myths and folktales. I loved the humanity of the Greek gods, the nobility and tragedy of the Norse gods, and the beautiful spirit of the Polynesian stories.

As I grew older, I sought out Russian and gypsy folktales, Hawaiian and Australian stories, anthologies of the Grimm tales. I read Joseph Campbell's work and was intrigued by the journey of the hero and the underlying structure of myths.

I began creating jewelry in December of 1995, and quickly grew to love it. I took a handful of classes and began selling my work through a salon, and then eventually I bought a tent and started selling at craft shows and art fairs. I also sold my work to the Detroit Institute of Arts for its gift shops.

It's been several years and I'm still creating jewelry. I love finding pendants that strike a chord with me--pieces that evoke that connection to the myth, whether it be Medusa or a spirit lock. The stories of the past inform my work in the present. I hope you'll come along on my journey!

    I've been creating jewelry since December of 1995. I love myths and legends, the poetry of folktales, and the power of a good story. I love designing pieces that evoke a feeling of connection with old stories.

    The Kerrytown BookFest is an event celebrating those who create books and those who read them. The primary goal is to highlight our area’s rich heritage in the book and printing arts while showcasing our local and regional individuals, businesses, and organizations. Since 2003 we have been growing, sharing, and discovering more and more about the rich book culture in our region. We feature authors, storytellers, publishers bookbinders, book artists, book illustrators, poets, letterpress printers, wood engravers, calligraphers, papermakers, librarians, teachers, publishers, new, used, and antiquarian booksellers and many others associated with books and their diverse forms, structure, and content. Our children’s area, with storytelling and creative activities, is always popular as well.

Frequently asked questions

Tell me more about returns.

If you have a problem with anything you've purchased from me, please do not hesitate to contact me. I want you to be happy with your purchase.

I accept returns within 14 days of receipt. Buyer must notify me before shipping item(s) back. The item(s) must be in sellable condition in their original packaging. Buyer pays return shipping unless the item(s) are defective.

I am sorry, at this time I cannot accept returns of earrings for health & hygiene reasons.

What happens if my package does not arrive?

First Class domestic packages generally take 3-5 days to arrive at their destination. However, keep in mind that the USPS describes the service as taking 2-10 business days (business days do not include holidays or weekends).

First Class International packages generally take 1-2 weeks to arrive at their destination. However, they sometimes can take up to a month to arrive due to Customs delays, etc.

Your best course of action in any situation where a package has not arrived is to contact your local post office first. I do not consider domestic/international packages "lost" until at least a month has passed.

Please contact me if your package is lost and I will do what I can to rectify the situation.

Custom and personalized orders

If you like an item and would like a custom length/style, please click the "request custom order" button on the listing; I will respond (generally within 24 hours) with possibilities and pricing (unless I am out of town and cannot create custom items). Please allow a few extra days for shipping custom items.

Care instructions

I construct my jewelry with quality materials and techniques. I would advise against getting jewelry wet if possible. An occasional splash is not going to be an issue but immersion during showering, swimming, etc., should be avoided.

Some of my materials can oxidize/tarnish. This is a natural process. If you don't care for the look, you can clean the jewelry with a gentle cleaner or polish (follow the manufacturer's directions). The best way to avoid tarnish is to avoid humidity. While not wearing jewelry, seal it in a Ziploc-style plastic bag.
