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. A co-worker who made beaded gemstone jewelry invited me to join her on a wholesale shopping trip one weekend, and I jumped at the chance. Walking in to a room lined with hundreds of strands of stones in every color and shape imaginable, it was hugely inspiring! I applied for a business licence, 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 sales blog with integrated Paypal checkout (photobucket! Livejournal!). I had listed over 100 items, and can 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 T-boned by a pickup truck, laid off at work, and my father was diagnosed with terminal cancer. My fiancé Craig and I changed our wedding plans to be married that summer in our backyard so Dad could be there with us (and he was).
A week before Christmas, my Grandmother passed away, and one month later, Dad passed away at home. It was so overwhelming, I stopped creating all together. Just three years later, Craig's Father passed away suddenly, and in 2011 his Mom lost her second battle with breast cancer.
We were absolutely broken.

In the summer of 2011 I began 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. I switched my moniker from Pink Lotus Designs to EarthShine; the name of my favorite store in the 90s. I reinvested all profits, and soon ended up with a huge inventory of items. Our gold pizza slice friendship necklaces were featured on a few websites in Oct 2013, and the shop quickly got busier than I could handle on my own. We were presented with a very interesting, and terrifyingly awesome opportunity. After everything we had been through, I wasn't about to sit back and play it safe...

⋆ PRESENT ⋆
Craig left his job in 2014 to join me full-time, helping pack orders, and handling all shipping related duties. My Mom moved into an apartment down the hall from us, and helps with package prep and other odd jobs. Her dining room table is always covered in some kind of project, and for a lady of retirement age, she has been most gracious in helping us with everything we send her way (thanks Mah! Love you!)

Almost all 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 present when they receive their order 💗

Thank you for taking a moment to read all this, I love what I do, and I hope that it shows!

- 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.
