About

Exotic and Nostalgic Adornments for Those Charmed by Another Place and Time

I had a simple, small-town life growing up in Texas, but I’ve been fascinated with history and the globe for as long as I can remember. My love of cultures, past and present, has led me to study International Business, Anthropology, and Archaeology, as well as live in Europe, Latin America and Asia.

Inspired by the exotic stones I acquired during my travels, I started making jewelry over a decade ago, and grew especially fond of incorporating foreign curios. When my husband and I moved to Thailand, it was my first in-depth exposure to Buddhism, and I soon found much wisdom in its teachings and peace in its meditative practices. As a hobby, I loved scouring the traditional markets for particularly interesting Buddha amulets and making them the centerpieces of my handmade necklaces. After I created more than I could possibly wear myself, I began selling them so I could share their rare and enduring charm. This eventually developed into my small jewelry business and then the introduction of a clothing line, centered around alluring Thai textiles and old-fashioned femininity. Traditional garments, as well as the skills used to make them, are quickly fading from existence in Asia. Helping to preserve these treasures and their time-honored methods of hand-creation is a goal I feel very passionate about.

My shop's name, Lotus and Lace Boutique, refers not only to the exotic and nostalgic aspects of my style but also to the Buddhist element featured in my work. The lotus flower is a symbol of Buddhism because it represents the purity of heart and mind. Although the lotus lays its roots in muck, its bud remains impervious to the mire, and its stem tenaciously journeys upward through the murky water so that its fragrant blossom eventually basks in the sunlight. This pattern of growth mirrors the progress of the soul from the primordial mud of ignorance, through the waters of experience, and into the illumination of enlightenment. It is my hope that my necklaces and meditation beads bring wearers not only aesthetic joy but also a greater sense of peace as well.

My jewelry is handmade and composed of amulets, pendants, beads, and other curiosities I attain from around the world. I live in Thailand, so many of my current items are treasures unearthed from scouring local Thai markets. I hope you enjoy wearing them as much as I have enjoyed collecting their components and combining them in aesthetic and harmonious ways.

♥ Every Lotus & Lace purchase you make gives directly to those in need in Thailand. ♥
I donate 10% of profits to:
- the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) for aiding refugees in Thailand (mainly ethnic minorities, such as the Karen, from Burma);
- local orphanages;
- and disaster-relief programs during times of local disasters.
Shipping
I normally mail within 1 to 2 days of receiving your order. However, on occasion, there may be further delays due to Thai holidays when the post office is closed.

Items ship from Thailand. The standard shipping option I provide is through the Thai postal service, using their Registered Mail System, which provides a tracking number. After shipment, this tracking number is added to your Etsy invoice, and you can track your package's progress at any point by clicking on tracking link.

Please note that the registered system often requires a signature upon delivery. If you are not home to sign, the postman will leave a notice. You may then retrieve your package at the post office. Some countries allow you to sign the notice and leave it in your mailbox and the postman will subsequently leave the package for you.

The customer is responsible for any Customs charges or taxes imposed upon delivery. This is not common, and in fact has never happened to one of my customers as far as I know, but if a recipient's country does impose unforeseen charges, Lotus and Lace Boutique cannot be held financially responsible.

*** International delivery takes 2 to 3 weeks on average. On rare occasion, items may be delayed in Customs. This is frustrating but beyond my control. ***

Please rest assured that the Thai postal system is RELIABLE, and I have never experienced a delivery failure. However, I cannot guarantee an exact shipment time frame with the registered mail system.

If you prefer speedier delivery, I can upgrade to the Express Mail Service (EMS), which takes only 4-7 business days, but it costs considerably more. If interested, let me know, and I can give you a more specific price for your particular item (based on weight).

If you are purchasing an item as a gift, I am happy to add a card and ship to a giftee's address. Just send me a message with the recipient's name and address.
Refunds and Exchanges
If you are not satisfied with your purchase, you may return it for an item exchange or refund, exclusive of shipping cost. Please contact me within a month of receipt of the item. The buyer is responsible for the cost of return shipping.
Additional policies and FAQs
Sizing:
Before purchasing an item, please pay close attention to the size or length of it. If a piece of jewelry is longer or shorter than you desire, I will re-size it for you at no extra charge. If you're unsure about the length, try draping a tape measure around your neck or measuring a favorite necklace for your ideal length.

Gift-Wrapping:
I am happy to wrap in Thai newspaper for free, but decorative wrapping paper tends to be pricy here, so I must charge for this service. If you'd like your item(s) gift-wrapped, please add the gift-wrapping item to your cart:
https://www.etsy.com/listing/32659611/gift-wrapping
(See above listing for paper options.)

Custom Creations:
I am also happy to custom make any items if you see elements you would like to combine or change.

Bulk Orders:
If interested in ordering multiple copies of an item or carrying my items on consignment, please contact me to work out the details.

Hold for Later:
If you would like me to temporarily hold an item for you, just send me message with the item link, and I will reserve the item for up to 30 days.
