About

✨🌙

Hello! I'm kelly, the founder of lotusfairy, otherwise known as EarthShine.
We are a husband + wife team, working out of our North Toronto studio apartment, offering a large selection of unique charm jewelry, crystals and gemstones, custom stamping, as well as stickers, prints and accessories.

⋆ BACKGROUND ⋆
In 2004 I was twenty-two, newly engaged, and commuting 60km a day to an office job that I didn't like. I spent most of my lunches (and paychecks) at the local craft store. A co-worker who made beaded gemstone jewelry invited me to join her on a wholesale shopping trip, and I jumped at the chance. Walking in to a room lined with thousands of strands of stones, in every color and shape imaginable, it was hugely inspiring! I applied for a business licence to gain access to the wholesale supplies and began creating under the name Pink Lotus Designs. In a world pre-Etsy, there seemed to be no fitting place to sell handmade goods online. With very limited coding skills, I put together a blog with integrated Paypal checkout. I remember staying up late to finish, absolutely convinced I was going to wake up in a few hours with my first sale. I never ended up with ANY sales from that site.

In the first three months of 2005, I was in a car accident, laid off at work, and my father was diagnosed with terminal cancer. My fiance Craig and I moved our wedding plans to be married that summer so my Dad could be there with us (and he was).
A week before Christmas, my maternal grandmother passed away, and one month later, Dad passed away at home. It was overwhelming, and I stopped creating all together. Three years later, in 2008, Craig's Father passed away suddenly, and in 2011 his Mom lost her second battle with breast cancer. We were absolutely broken.

Earthshine was born in the summer of 2011. With our spare room serving as craft space, I started making jewelry again, along with miniature dioramas, accessories and other mixed media pieces. This time I wasn't thinking about starting a business, I was creating as therapy, for my own happiness. It was at this time I switched from Pink Lotus Designs to EarthShine; the name of my favorite store as a teen in the 90s.


⋆ PRESENT ⋆
Our pizza necklace was featured in Bust Magazine (Aug 2013, Slice of life, pg 38) on thisiswhyimbroke and Buzzfeed. The shop quickly grew bigger than I could handle on my own, and Craig left his job in 2014 to join me full time. My mom moved in down the hall and helps with receiving, prepping packaging and other odd jobs.
2016 marked our fifth year in business and over 25,000 sales!

Most of our jewelry is made to order, meaning we can offer many options for customization, and it also cuts down on excess packaging. All pieces are quality checked before being carefully wrapped up, and topped with a sprinkle of stardust. My wish is that everyone feels like they are opening a gift when they receive their package :)

Any information given regarding the properties of
Gemstones is for 'entertainment purposes only'
Not intended to treat or diagnose medical conditions.

Please never substitute a gemstone for medical advice.
They are only meant to support and assist your journey.

✩ Jewelry care

All jewelry tarnishes (turns black /dulls/ oxidizes)
This is not rust, and is still safe to wear.

In addition to tarnishing, all plated jewelry will fade or change color.

★ Aim to minimize contact between your skin and the jewelry
(wear over your clothes etc)

★ Do not wear your jewelry to bed, in the shower, at the beach/pool etc

★ Keep away from perfumes and body lotions, especially sunscreen

★ Use a dry jewelry polishing cloth to shine and clean after EACH WEAR.
(Jewelry cloths are fairly inexpensive and last for years)

★ Store away from sunlight, dampness and open air.
Best way to store them is in the re-sealable baggie they come packaged in.

✩ Metal Information

TIBETAN SILVER is a metal alloy made of zinc, copper and tin. It is lead free and nickel free and will be OK for most people with sensitive skin.

SILVER PLATED: sterling silver layer, plated over a base metal, usually copper.

GOLD PLATED: Thin layer of usually 22k gold plated over another metal

PEWTER is a soft metal alloy, mostly tin, that has a darker 'antique silver' look to it. It will bend with a bit of force.

RHODIUM PLATED: Chrome-like, precious metal with high shine. Most 'white gold' is rhodium plated.

STAINLESS STEEL chains do have a small nickel content, avoid products with this metal if you have any nickel or metal allergies

✩ Packaging and Gift Wrap
