As soon as I saw this in the shop I had to get it, these stones and the theme were almost screaming at me, and when I opened the parcel up it was so special, they were truly meant to be here with me, I absolutely love each piece. Such lovely dried flowers as well and it all is on my desk now which doubles as my sort of altar. I really connect with this set, thank you Laura for creating it. Also thank you so much for the lovely parcel of White Sage, it smells so amazing, I'm in love! As always, so much love and care went into the wrapping of each thing, it's always very special to open a parcel from Precious and Peculiar! ♥

Always love to return to Laura's lovely shop as any parcel from her is just completely love-filled! This was my first stone mate, I got Mahogany Jasper which I actually had made a mental note to myself to work with, and so this was perfect. I got two pieces of it in this parcel, one is a flat tumble and one is a regular tumble, they are so good to hold and yes it was time to work with this one. Thank you Laura!

Oh my god, this is such a beautiful carnelian. A collection piece. I am completely in love with it. You probably know how wonderful an experience opening a package from Laura is. If you dont know, I encourage you to give this shop a try. Really, every single item is great quality, so you can even chose with your eyes closed ! And you are in for a very nice treat when the package reaches your doorstep ! Thank you Laura <3

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.

Welcome! Happy Harvest Season and soon to be Winter Holiday Season! I am going to add some new things to the shop over the next few weeks and hope you check frequently to see what's doing!

Any orders placed between 11/21 and 11/25 will not ship until 11/26 due to Thanksgiving, Harvest and Gratitude Celebrations.

I'm in love with all of you who supported me before and during my trips to France and Maine! The good news is that I will be firmly planted at home this winter and have super exciting updates planned from now until Spring!

Much love and please do not hesitate to ask questions...I will do my best to help!

Bright lights! Laura

Please read my policies. They help us avoid misunderstandings and keep me (and hopefully you) feeling good about our experience together.

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.

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
I always ship by U.S.P.S. First Class or Priority mail. I will refund any shipping overages that exceed $2.00. If for some reason I don't on your order, please feel free to send me a message with a gentle reminder. One woman show here, folks! Sometimes things get missed!

I absolutely adore including little extras in your orders. Because of the overall theme of the shop, I may include an oracle card, extra stones, earth offerings, a candle or even just something pretty I think belongs in your box. If you would be offended by or uncomfortable receiving an oracle card, please do let me know. I would never ever want you to be unhappy with your parcel.

I also include flower petals with some orders, but they are unscented beyond the natural scent of the flowers. However, if you are sensitive you may want to send me a message asking me to not include flowers or anything scented in your order. I've shipped to people with severe allergies and never have we had a problem.

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.
Refunds and Exchanges
I urge you to shop mindfully and read the item descriptions carefully as I do not offer refunds unless an item is defective or arrives broken. In the event that a refund is warranted, please allow 2 weeks for processing after I receive the returned item, 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.

Dream Catchers/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 are unhappy in any way, please contact me by Etsy conversation explaining the reason 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, we can discuss a possible resolution. I will always do my utmost to resolve any problems and provide a happy outcome.

I am sorry, but I cannot cancel orders unless you contact me within two hours of purchase, so please shop mindfully.

I want you to be happy with your shopping and even browsing experience in my shop, so please do contact me should anything disappointing occur.
Additional policies and FAQs
Feedback:
I love reading your comments! 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 the truth is that many items will have traces of holy scents. Please send me a message before ordering if you have any doubts so we can discuss solutions. I do not offer refunds unless an item is defective or arrives broken, so please shop mindfully.
