Healing the world, one stone at a time.
What was first an experiment in jewelry making utilizing beautiful & healing natural materials to give to my loved ones as gifts has turned into a conscious design jewelry venture.
I use gemstones, rock, wood, bones, horn, feathers and other items from nature to create beautiful items with spiritual & metaphysical healing properties.
Each item is carefully and intuitively designed, then lovingly created by my own two hands.
I grow lavender in my home garden using organic methods and wrap the wands myself. These are available seasonally; custom orders also available seasonably. Please contact me for info on harvest dates and availability of completed lavender wraps.
I buy locally made and locally sourced supplies whenever possible.
I reuse and recycle as much as possible so that Para Curar Designs carbon imprint is as small as possible.
I first started creating jewelry to share my love & knowledge of the spiritual & metaphysical healing properties of stones with others. What was first a desire to give heartfelt, healing gifts has grown into a conscious design jewelry venture.
Because I believe nature has a lesson to teach all of us, I pay attention to what each stone means and like to take the spirit of each material into consideration in my work. I also pray for the healing of the person who will be wearing my jewelry when making each piece. Each piece is made with the conscious intent for healing. In this way, I believe I am doing a small part in making the world a better place.
Take a look around my shop; if you like my work but don’t see exactly what you want, just send me a message via the convo button. I'm happy to make something special for you.
Remember to take a measurement prior to purchase to ensure you receive the jewelry in an appropriate length.

Additional policies and FAQs
I love, love, LOVE doing custom orders! :)
Custom orders require a deposit of 50% of the final product price. Once the listing for your custom item has been posted, please place the order & submit payment of the balance of your order within 7 (seven) business days. If, after 7 days, the item has not been purchased (or arrangements have been made with the store to delay final payment), it will may placed in the shop as an in-stock item and will be available for public purchase. Deposits are *non-refundable*.
Please be aware that ALL custom items come with insurance and tracking information, for your protection and mine. This cost is non-negotiable and you won't regret it; I promise! :)
In order to receive the correct size jewelry, please TAKE A MEASUREMENT with a measuring tape and include that info in the notes section during the checkout process. I will need *total length* of the piece (which always includes the clasp) that you want in order to make it. Please contact me if you need assistance measuring your wrist, ankle, or neck in order to determine the correct length. Measuring incorrectly means that your jewelry might not fit. Purchase of any item (custom or in-stock) from my store means that the customer accepts responsibility for taking correct measurements *prior to ordering*.
All sales final on custom items. Refunds are not offered on custom items; no exceptions.
Frequently asked questions
Is the clasp included in the length of jewelry items?
YES, the length listed for each item *always* includes the clasp. When requesting a custom item, you will need to take an accurate measurement for whatever body part will be adorned by your chosen jewelry item (wrist, ankle, neck, etc). This measurement must be the total length that you want your item to be.
How do I know what size ring to order?
In order to get the correct size stretchy gemstone ring, you'll need to know your actual ring size, then order the size range that best fits that size. I make and list rings in US ring sizes.
If your ring size is 6.25 (6 1/2), you should order size 6/7 *or* a ring in the closest size available to your own size.
If your ring size is an even number (example: size 7), you should order the size range which would best fit your finger on an average day. If your size is 7 but, for example, have a health condition that causes swelling or bloating, you should probably order a size up (size 7/8) instead of a size down (6/7).
Please contact me via the Etsy convo function if you need further assistance.
Q: What size do I need to order?
A: What size do you wear? In other words, always take a measurement prior to ordering so you will know what size jewelry item you need.
Always take a measurement prior to purchase to ensure your jewelry item is the length you need!!!
Average size for bracelet is generally considered to be 7 (seven) inches. However, "average" does not fit everyone! I've made adult bracelets that range from 4 inches to 10 inches. Hence, the need to take a proper measurement.
Necklaces range in length depending on style, personal preference, and, of course, body size/shape. Hence, the need to take a proper measurement.
Do not use chemicals, soap, or any other substance with your gemstone jewelry. If it needs cleaning, simply wipe with a cloth.
If you purchase an item made with silk or polyester cord, do not get it wet and do not pull or tug on it. Getting it wet will cause it to stretch. Pulling or tugging on it will cause it to stretch and possibly break (which is a safety feature for these items).
Refunds are not offered for items broken due to pulling/tugging. I do offer to re-string these items for $8-$25 per item. This pays me for my time as well as covering any beads or other items lost when the item broke.
