On the 5th of every month will be my 'Take 5' offer. I will make 5 of something (it might be a pair of earrings or a set of bracelets or a group of something) and offer it at a special price for the month.. but only 5 will be available and once they are gone, they are gone! If any are leftover they will go into my shop at a higher, non-sale price.

THE JEWELRY

My items come packaged in baggies with a Lavoro Designs label unless it is otherwise stated in an individual listing - some rings come in a box in order to protect them during shipping. I offer gift boxes and organza bags for purchase. Just add those to your order.

Lavoro designs are individually handcrafted with plated metals and sterling silver (once in awhile), stainless steel, natural gems and stones, glass beads, natural wood, pewter and base metal components, making our jewelry an affordable indulgence.

Lavoro Designs is a VEGAN company. I do not use any materials that are sourced from animals like bone, silk, natural pearls, coral, feathers, leather, suede and the like. Anything that may look like those materials are actually man made.

Most of the designs are limited edition and limited run and there may even be 'one of a kind' pieces listed so if you see a style you love, don't let it get away!

Special request? Convo me! I can usually accommodate requests to swap out ear wire styles, change colors and length. Please ask! I also love to do custom orders... convo me and we can see if I can bring your idea to life!

Please keep in mind that each item is handcrafted and therefore, never perfect! Gems and beads are matched in color, size and shape to the best of my ability but there could be variations in the natural components.

I can also repair jewelry you purchased from me. If the elastic breaks, I can restring it for you. You'll have to cover the postage to send the beads back to me but I'll pay to ship it back to you. Mistakes happen and sometimes jewelry breaks ... the world is an imperfect place.

GIFT WRAPPING & CARD SERVICE

I am happy to do a bill to/ship to for your gift giving needs. I can include a free computer made gift card (black and white) with your personal message on it. Just leave a note in the comment section. I'd appreciate it if you could mention the age of the person and their relationship to you so I can find an appropriate style of card.

I offer gift boxes and organza bags for purchase. Just add those to your order.

I do not send invoices so no pricing information will be included.

SHIPPING

My policy is to have in stock orders shipped within 3 business days. In the event I have any unforeseen circumstances that require a longer wait time, you will get an email or convo from me keeping you informed. I take customer service seriously.

A flat rate shipping rate is applied on all orders and I include delivery confirmation on ALL packages! This amount covers the postage, envelopes, tape and labor to pack items.

If you desire Priority shipping, please add that to your cart or convo me for a reserved listing.

Most items are in stock for quick shipment unless specified otherwise. I usually have a one to three day turnaround on orders. Orders placed Friday thru Sunday will usually ship no later than the following Tuesday. If I can get it out sooner, I will! Some items are shipped same business day if it's already made and I can make the mail!

I use Pay Pal and Etsy shipping with delivery confirmation so you can find your package tracking number in your Pay Pal and/or Etsy account information. You should also receive an email when the shipment takes place. The USPS has been slow lately so please allow 5 to 10 days for your package to reach you once it has been entered into the system.

I do not include a printed invoice in your order. If you desire one, you can print it from your Etsy cart area.


CUSTOMER SERVICE

If you are not satisfied for any reason, please convo me immediate so I may have the opportunity to fix the problem. I appreciate you leaving feedback. If you feel like you need to leave less than a 4 or 5 star feedback, please convo me to try and resolve your issue before doing so. It isn't fair to leave bad feedback without giving me a chance to fix the problem. Thank You!


CUSTOM ORDERS

We will be in constant communication thru the process so I'll let you know a time frame on when you can expect to receive your item(s) based on design, material and supply gathering and labor. Some orders may require a deposit or payment in full.

About

If You Can't Find it... Create it!

My shop came to be when I failed to find the type of earrings I was looking for. Then my shop just grew from there!

Customer service is very important to me. I hate waiting for things I order so I do my best to get your order out as soon as possible. I also like communication so I do my best to acknowledge orders when they are placed and keep you in the loop concerning your order.

I love creating custom designs for clients and it's so much fun to be able to offer affordable pieces that allow people to indulge a little without guilt!

I am a work from home pet mom to my fabulous beasts. All my pets are rescued. I use the money I earn from my shop to help pay for their high quality food, treats, toys and vet appts.

Please 'like' my Facebook page (the link is over there ----->)
so you can get notice of new items and special discount codes!

Thank you for stopping by my shop!

Thank you for your interest in my handcrafted jewelry.

Please keep in mind that each item is handcrafted and therefore, never perfect! Gems and beads are matched in color, size and shape to the best of my ability but there could be variations in the natural components.

Colors can vary on individual computer monitors so please check the description for color info or convo me if you have any questions. I'm usually able to get back to you quickly.

If you have any questions regarding measurements or colors, please convo me.

If you have made a purchase and are unhappy in any way, please give me the opportunity to fix it before leaving me negative feedback.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
Pay Pal:
All forms accepted but E-Checks must clear before shipment, which can take a week.
Shipping
Shipping to US only, no exceptions. Sorry. I ship from home and it's difficult for me to get to a post office in order to do international shipments.

I charge a flat rate no matter how many items you buy!

USPS First Class with Delivery Confirmation (shipped thru Pay Pal. Please make sure your address matches to avoid shipping delays). The USPS has been slow lately so please allow 5-7 days for your item to reach you.

I can ship priority if you'd like to pay extra. Just convo me and I can set up a reserved listing to add that to your order.

I can do a bill to/ship to for gifts.

Please make sure that if you need to indicate size, color or other custom choice info, that you do so at checkout in the comment section. Failing to do so means I have to email you to get the info, you have to email me back and this will result in a delay of me making and shipping your items.

In stock items:

Will ship within three business days once payment has been received and/or cleared. In most cases, orders will ship the next business day but I want to allow myself a little extra time just in case I need to make the item!

Special order or custom items:

Custom orders will require pre-payment. You are not under obligation to buy the item unless you approve it and I can always refund you if you change your mind but I have had some issues with people wanting custom items and then not following thru on the purchase after I've spent time and money sourcing materials.

I will give you an approximate date. If I have the components on hand, I can usually ship within a day or two, If I have to order components it could be 2 weeks. Please ask.
Refunds and Exchanges
If you are not happy with your item, please contact me regarding a return or exchange.

Please ask questions before you commit to buy and please read the descriptions on the items. Photos may not accurately depict color as monitors vary or you may have a color choice when you order.Do not hesitate to ask questions!

I would appreciate you not leaving bad or neutral feedback until you have contacted me to resolve any issues you have with your purchase or experience. Thanks.
Additional policies and FAQs
FAQ:

Q: Why do you only ship within the US?

A: I do not drive and in order to ship internationally, I have to go to the post office and that is difficult for me to do so until I am able to do international shipping via pay pal, from home.. I am unable to offer it. I'm very sorry.

Q: Do your items come in a gift box?

A: My items come packaged in baggies with a Lavoro Designs label unless it is otherwise stated in an individual listing - some rings come in a box in order to protect them during shipping. I offer gift boxes and organza bags for purchase. Just add those to your order.

Q: Will you ship a gift to a friend?

A: Absolutely! As long as the friend is in the US. I can ship to them without any sort of invoice.

Q: Do you offer gift wrapping?

I do not offer free gift wrapping but I do sell ribbon wrapped gift boxes and organza bags that I can package your items into. I do offer a free custom made, black & white computer card if you'd like one. Just mention it at checkout and tell me what you'd like the card to say and the age of the person it's being sent to so I can find an age appropriate card. I will make it and include it in your order.

Q: I see a style in your sold section that I'd like to buy. Is that possible?

A: Maybe. Please convo me and ask. If I have the components, I'd be happy to do it for you!

Q: I react to certain metals. Do you offer sterling silver or alternative findings?

A: Yes, I do have sterling silver and Niobium findings available. There will be a small additional charge. Please ask!

Q: Do you do custom requests?

A: Yes! I'd love to work with you in order to bring your thoughts to life! Please email me!

Q:Can I get one of the styles shown on an alternate metal? (ie: goldtone instead of silvertone)

A: Maybe. I can do it if I have the components in the alternate color! Please ask.

Q: I love those round earwires, can I get those on the pairs I order instead of the regular earwires?

A: Probably! Just mention that in the comment section when you check out. I'll contact you.

Q: What does limited edition mean?

A: Limited edition styles could be one of a kind or I may only have enough components to make a few. If you love a style that is marked limited edition, don't wait to pick it up!

Q: I don't have pierced ears. Do you offer non-pierced styles?

A: Yes, I do! I sell non-pierced hoops that will accomodate drops. I can make most styles of my pierced earrings in a drop design. Please contact me for details.
