About

Serendipity

After graduating college, studying art and design, I worked for many years in the fashion industry as an illustrator, stylist and art director. Then, one day, I had that “ah-ha” moment! I was asked to style a fashion show for a line of simple black bathing suits. Not finding what I wanted in the way of accessories, I decided to fabricate my own jewelry to be worn by the models. Big, bold, tribal, and flowing down to the collarbone, my 26 pairs of one-of-a-kind earrings made their debut down the runway, and ultimately, were the showstopper! Buyers, anxious to know ‘who designed the jewelry’, placed orders and provided the impetus to launch into this new career.

Designer of Wearable Art.
Magnificent natural minerals, raw, semiprecious, and polished stones, vintage glass crystals and findings, resin mesh, lavish gold leaf and patinas – all materials sculpted by Pauletta Brooks, to create her unique designs, eye-catching manifestations from a mysterious world of beauty and fantasy. Blessed with a bountiful imagination, this graduate of the Arts from both Hampshire College and The Fashion Institute of Technology shapes each piece individually, instinctively allowing the material to dictate form while always keeping in mind the function to the wearer. Her signature is unmistakable: Sculptural, organic, bold ‘signature’ pieces that often look as if they’ve been dredged up from the sea from a mermaid’s lair.
Valued for her ingenuity and original designs, her jewelry has been featured in editorials in: Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, The New York Times, New York Magazine, Details, The Daily News, and Ornament Magazine as well shown at The Folk Art Museum of New York City and the galleries at The Fashion Institute of Technology.
All handmade in New York City, each of her designs is a one-of-a-kind wearable art piece valued by all who treasure their own uniqueness.

Phew...I call that "SSP" (shameless self-promotion!!)
In any case, enjoy exploring my shop.
I'm a 24/7 obsessive-creative. If I could tinker and make things all day, I would, and someday-when I untether myself from this computer, I will!

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
I gladly accept exchanges
Contact me within: 3 days of delivery
Ship items back within: 7 days of delivery
I don't accept returns or cancellations
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
The following items can't be returned or exchanged
Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:
  • Custom or personalized orders
  • Perishable products (like food or flowers)
  • Digital downloads
  • Intimate items (for health/hygiene reasons)
If you are unhappy with any of the pieces you receive, please contact me right away. I want you to be happy and will do my best to accommodate you. Requests for returns must be made within 3 days upon receipt of the item. I will work with you to exchange any unworn items for credit or fix anything that may have been damaged in shipping. Credit will be applied when item has been returned in good condition. *ANY ITEM BEING RETURNED MUST FIRST HAVE PRIOR WRITTEN APPROVAL FROM ME AND BE SHIPPED BACK INSURED AND WITH SIGNATURE CONFIRMATION! A rental or restocking fee may apply if item is out longer than expected.
Please note that many of these pieces are somewhat delicate and handmade and the materials I use are subject to some natural flaws, especially those pieces using vintage findings or minerals. Gold in the paint may, over time, oxidize a bit or rub. This can add an antique effect that I may intentionally add to some jewelry pieces. Stones and semi-precious minerals may have unusual marks. This does not mean they are "defective", just unique and beautiful, the way Mother Nature made them.
Jewelry pieces sculpted in Resin Mesh should NOT be left out in the sun or exposed to intense heat. (please read Additional Info section).
If you should require any adjustments or repairs please email/convo me to discuss your issue. There may be a fee incurred.
Your 'Positive' feedback is always welcomed, but if you have any negative comments please address them to me directly. I aim to satisfy!
Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you will visit often.
Payment
Payment is done at time of purchase. PLEASE familiarize yourself with my shop policies. I accept payment through PayPal or Direct Pay credit cards and ship after payment clears. Personal checks, paid in advance, are accepted on custom orders. Custom orders require a deposit and sale is final.
Please read all shop policies before making any purchase and if you have any questions ~ don't hesitate to ask!
Shipping
PLEASE READ CAREFULLY!
I print my shipping labels directly from your order on Etsy, so please verify your address before finalizing the purchase.

Items are wrapped individually and usually shipped within 3-5 days. I ship USPS first class or Priority. I will use the smallest size box (often recycled) available for your order. Shipping fee overages will be refunded to you or I may notify you about any additional costs and invoice you for any additional s/h fees. I often choose to ship international orders using Registered mail which allows for tracking. You are free to have the s/h fees reduced by requesting, PRIOR TO ORDERING, that I ship only basic flat rate-BUT IN THAT CASE I WILL NOT GUARANTEE ARRIVAL OF THE ITEM(s) once it leaves my hands. And, unfortunately, I also have no control over the shipping times once it leaves my hands.
Contact me for private pick up if you are in New York City.

I can not take responsibility for items that are lost, damaged, or stolen after shipment. This applies to both domestic and international shipments. But I will make every effort to assist in the tracking of the item

PLEASE NOTE: International buyers are responsible for all customs and duties fees that may be incurred. Please be advised that international purchases will be shipped as "merchandise," and the buyer is responsible for any customs/duties upon arrival. Estimate your Import Duties here:
http://www.dutycalculator.com/new-import-duty-and-tax-calculation/
Please do not make a purchase without understanding your VAT obligations. If you have any specific instructions please make sure to notify me of them! Since sellers are unable to predict what fees, if any, will be applied, Etsy does not hold sellers responsible for unexpected customs fees or taxes.
Additional policies and FAQs
GENERAL INFO:
The words 'stones' and 'gemstones' may be used interchangeably in describing an item. If you are unsure of real (semi-precious) or imitation (crystal, glass) Please contact me for further clarification. Generally, the price is indicative enough of what's what!
Most gold items are made with Gold Vermeil (gold over Sterling) or 14K or 18K Gold fill elements. Gold filled pieces contain 100+ times more 'real' gold than gold-plated pieces. They are durable and tarnish resistant. Gold filled pieces are a high quality, affordable alternative to solid gold and best for people with skin sensitivity to gold.
The stones used in my jewelry are selected by me and are, unless noted, 100% Natural.
Mineral jewelry is delicate and should be treated with care!!
Remove rings when doing rough or physical work, and avoid exposure to cosmetics, creams and lotions. Gold Vermeil can gradually wear, giving the appearance that it has faded. Skin and hair products can react with the plating, causing the finish to tarnish; everyday or very frequent wear may speed up this process.
*Jewelry should always be taken off when washing hands, or in the shower, pool, or ocean.
