Lovelovelove this stone, I had not heard of it previously and just felt so drawn to it and it feels magical, so glad I got one. I also want to mention that I got so many amazing gift stones, to mention a few, garnet, malachite, sunstone, raw tiger's eye, rough ocean jasper, rough larimar and more, and thank you so much for the two Morrisonite Jaspers. I was so touched and overwhelmed by your generosity when I opened up this package, words can't describe... From the bottom of my heart, thank you Laura!

Jet is one of my favourites and I love my piece from you, it just makes me happy-sigh when I pick it up! I really recommend getting your stones from this lovely shop, they are truly love-filled and wrapped so beautifully!

This Black Amber is so special, thank you so much for sending extra pieces to share with others, they are added to my bowl where friends get to pick a stone they would like to bring home.

This black moostone is spectacular ; I seldom saw such beautiful pieces with such polish, such deep dark color, and so large ! I cannot get enough of it, and I put it under my pillow so I can feel it in my hand when falling asleep....

OMG these beautiful hearts ! so beautiful, I cannot stop gazing into it and admiring the red inclusions.... so, so beautiful. I lack words to express acurately how wonderful an experience receiving a package from Laura is. Each time it makes my day, puts a smile on my face, warms my heart. I am addicted ! I really recommand newcomers to give Laura's shop a try. Is is impossible to be disapointed. Purchasing from Precious and Peculiar is much more than a simple shopping experience. Is is a real treat to oneself !

About

It is my hope that wandering through the sections of my shop will feel like stepping through a portal of the most magical kind.

NEWS! One of my large doily dreamcatchers is currently featured on the beach house set of the new Netflix series Grace & Frankie!

I put my heart into everything I make and offer here and hope you can feel it when you look at my offerings.

I long to dispel the myth that sellers on etsy must have a defined brand and that shops with a variety of entirely different items cannot survive alongside streamlined shops with clear themes. Etsy is a never ending shopper's paradise and each of us has something to offer.

I make everything you see in the shop unless I specifically mention a collaboration with another artist or am offering gemstones. My "Altar Vignettes" have been praised by author Denise Linn and right away she saw that they are created with love.

My paper wallets were featured on Stylehive and Design Sponge. I was invited to create art for journalist swag bags at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver and my collaged pieces have been prominently displayed in galleries throughout the Midwest.

It is my honor to host this space and invite you to browse and always remember, everything you see is one of a kind.

My packages are sent to you beautifully wrapped with care and should you choose to try an intuitive reading, always know that I will set aside everything else to focus only on you.

If you'd like to know more, I'd be overjoyed if you stopped by my blog or checked out my facebook page, please join us.

NOTE: "While I (and many other people) have had wonderfully healing experiences working with gemstones, purchasing them from me should not be considered a promise of results or a replacement for professional medical care of any kind, including counseling. This is an item you may purchase for its beauty and quality, but not because I have promised financial, emotional or physical wellness.

Some have suggested that we sellers include lines in our listings indicating that our descriptions should be considered entertainment. I draw the line there. While occasionally I include wildly humorous anecdotes in my listings, there is nothing about my own work, experience, knowledge or understanding of subtle energy and vibrational healing that is meant to entertain the masses."

If you visit my blog and leave a comment I may keel over in delight!
If you purchase one of my items, love it and leave me positive feedback I'll be intoxicated with appreciation!

precious: dear; beloved.
peculiar: distinct from all others.

*****
Earth & Spirit: I have been a Reiki & Crystal Healing Practitioner for almost 20 years. I firmly believe that each one of us has an individual process for healing and while most of my healing sets, grids and art pieces come with basic notes on how to use, please know that your own intuition is always best. I am happy to answer any questions as long as it is understood that I am only offering insights and intuitive answers, never a replacement for professional medical care.

Shop policies

So happy you are here and I hope you feel the magic. Please read my policies. They help us avoid misunderstandings and keep me (and hopefully you) feeling good about our experience together.

Etsy changed their feedback policy so that you have to write five words to leave a starred review. I know it is a pain, but the good news is that you do not have to review everything you ordered. You can just leave one rave review on one item! Of course, I appreciate the time you take to do this and if you are happy, please consider leaving positive details of your experience. If you are unhappy, please do let me know. I will always go out of my way to remedy the situation.

PLEASE SEE MY UPDATED SHIPPING POLICY REGARDING SCHEDULE. Added on 3/5/15.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
I accept Visa, Mastercard and Discover through Paypal and Etsy, though I prefer Paypal.

I will hold items on occasion, but may ask for a non-refundable deposit if the item is over $20.00.

My shop is small and I am sorry, but I do not offer trades.
Shipping
************NEW NOTE: I have changed my shipping dates and now ship once a week, usually on Fridays. I apologize for any inconvenience, but I'm a one woman show and this will help me devote time to creating more magic and filling my shop. If you have ordered in the past, you know your package is worth the few extra days. If this is the first order, you are in for a treat!

I always ship by U.S.P.S. First Class delivery. I include non-signature Delivery Confirmation in the shipping fee.

All products are shipped in new bubble mailers or clean recycled gift boxes and are ready for gift-giving (even if it’s just a gift for yourself!). However, if you would like me to include a tag and ship it to another address, just include your request in the “Notes to Seller” field when you order.

I'm moving toward using all recycled packaging from http://www.ecoenclose.com/

If you do not want any cello bags in your order, I can accommodate this easily, please leave a note requesting recycled paper packaging in the "notes to seller" section.

I love shipping internationally, but cannot be responsible for Custom's fees and taxes on any order. Unfortunately, due to a rash of disappearing international orders and the inability to purchase delivery confirmation on such orders, I cannot be responsible for refund or replacement on lost or missing packages. I am so sorry, but international orders are at your own risk. I do everything I can to ensure that the package is clearly and properly labeled.

Holiday Season Shipping Schedule: November & December. I can't make promises for the post office, but here is what I can promise: I will ship your items to your etsy shipping address the day of or next business day after your order. My items are made and ready to ship unless custom like a medicine bundle, so there is no waiting. I am happy to ship to another address, just include a note when checking out.
Refunds and Exchanges
Refunds may take 2 weeks to process, such is the nature of a small business. Your original purchase funds may have already been invested in shop supplies or to pay a bill.

I have a flexible refund policy, but do not refund on intuitive readings or my dreamcatcher yantras.

Dreamcatchers/Mobiles: These items are made with delicate vintage doilies that arrive in my studio with missed stitches and fading, occasionally rust from a pin. They are washed in natural soap or hand-dyed with natural dyes (with the exception of reds and purples). The metals and ribbons are usually mixed, tarnished or faded. This must be considered part of their charm.

If you’re unsatisfied with the item(s) you must notify me by etsy convo within 2 days of receipt and at that point, unless it is one of the above listed items, I will refund the entire purchase price within two weeks, once I receive the returned the item in the same condition as mailed. If you are unhappy in any way, please contact me by Etsy conversation explaining the reasons why. If I am at fault I will repair, replace or refund the item, depending on the problem. If you are simply unsatisfied with your purchase, then we can discuss a possible resolution. I will always do my utmost to resolve any problems and provide a happy outcome

Again, refunds may take 2 weeks to process, such is the nature of a small business. Your original purchase funds may have already been invested in shop supplies or to pay a bill.
Additional policies and FAQs
Feedback:
Positive feedback is handmade seller's gold. If you are happy with your purchase I hope you'll let me and others know by leaving feedback. If you are unhappy, please consider contacting me before leaving feedback so that I can work with you to remedy the situation. I love happy customers and want to make sure you are pleased!

I have a cat and two dogs and while I keep them away from my fibers, I cannot promise that someone extra sensitive would be safe. I cannot be responsible for any allergy flare-ups, but I do my best to send only fresh items.

i do burn white sage and sandalwood incense while working,. I try to keep my fabrics in closed cabinets, but cannot promise that some items won't have traces of holy scents.
