About BareandMeWeddings

Sales 1,769
On Etsy since 2011

Designer of beautifully handcrafted baubles and gifts with meaning and charm. We've been designing perfectly pretty pieces for over 15 years.

Inspiration is a funny thing… You can be inspired by lyrics of a song, the curve of a flowers petal or the way the sun hits the ocean at dusk. I am inspired by all of these things and more. In the early years of my marriage and being a mother of three we did not have a lot of money for shopping for the wants in life. We just wanted to pay our bills and survive. Being a creative person, I could replicate almost anything I had seen in the “gosh I wish I could afford that store.” I have an excellent color pallet for fabric and stones and a keen eye for fashion. Being in the Fashion Industry for over 25 years, it was an easy transition from Fashion to Design.
I started small at a friend’s dining room table designing jewelry and we both became obsessed with the creation of these pieces we could never afford to buy. It was a thirst for the next most beautiful piece. We did not know whom we would sell it to but would buy thousands of dollars in stones, gold and silver. We just could not help ourselves. Then we made our way into the homes of the lets call them the “Girlie Girls” of Washington DC, Palm Beach and Boston. We knew our audience; we would sell out and then start all over again. Being passionate about what you do in life is half the battle. People want to be inspired; they want to believe in something. Its hopes love. I can honestly say I hope to be inspired by my surroundings in life and be passionate about the creation of that hope. That is in every piece of jewelry I design.

My hope is… that all of my “girlie girls” love every piece of mine they wear.

Return Policy:
If you are not completely satisfied with your purchase, Lillyput Lane Design Company will issue a credit or honor an exchange within 7 days from original receipt. Prior to sending back jewelry please contact us by email at laurie [!at] lillyputlanedesigncompany.com, to receive your return authorization number. No returns shall be accepted without first contacting us to receive such number. We take great pride in our hand-crafted items as well as customer satisfaction, and therefore we are pleased to offer repair services in the unlikely event damage occurs.

♥SAMPLE SALE ITEMS ARE FINAL SALE♥

♥CZ Jewelry--- I do not repair CZ charms and they are final sale. I can not control damage to a cz charm. Especially with bracelets. You need to be aware and careful with hitting against corners or objects. Sterling silver is soft metal. Please do not BEND or alter the shape or CZ will fall out... Please make sure to read all of my policies. No returns are excepted... I have only had one instance where the CZ charm fell out. I wear several pieces of my own collection as well as my daughters. We have yet to have an issue with any item. I have sold 100's of these pieces with no problems but I do have to note this in my policy since I have a NO RETURN POLICY...

♥Our jewelry at Lillyput Lane is dainty, hand crafted and we use only quality findings. It is fragile and WILL break if banged around or is not cared for. Occasionally we do have breakage, and we will repair at not cost to you. However, we do not repair jewelry for "normal wear and tear" but will repair with a cost of $75.00 and hour. If you will please convo me with the exact nature of the issue, I can estimate the cost.

:::We do hand cut and sand all of our metals. This may result in scratches. It is just the nature of a handmade shop:::

♥Policy on customized jewelry including all hand stamped jewelry...
*please make sure you understand that these pieces are not engraved but hand stamped with care. You will NOT a perfectly stamped piece of jewelry but should remember this is what makes this unique and has the character that a factory produced item would not have. YOU may see indentations on the back but I take great care and use a thicker gage to prevent severe exposure to this. You may see some flaws on the back. Also, all of my metal work has been brushed for a satin finish. You will NOT a high sheen on my metal.

♥THERE is no RETURN for CUSTOM Jewelry. Please make sure when ordering you understand the policies of Lillyput Lane Design Company. We spend an enormous amount of time in customer service, design, photographing, uploading, packaging and postage. Please ask as many questions as you need to feel satisfied with your custom listing. Work will not begin until listing is paid.

♥Jewelry Care:
Sometimes jewelry can become dull. I do package most gifts in a plastic baggie, to prevent dullness. Earring, necklaces should be hung to prevent getting tangled. If your jewelry does become dull, a quick, easy and safe way to clean is with warm water, toothpaste and a soft toothbrush. Gently clean your jewelry with a down ward stroke. It should sparkle right up... Pat dry with cotton towel.
*On vermeil products, please be extremely gentle, vermeil is sterling silver with 24K overlay.
