A LABOR OF LOVE
The Lauren Earrings are made-to-order pieces that begin with a carefully chosen piece of howlite that is rigorously inspected by a geologist to ensure that it meets our quality standards. Next, it is cut, shaped, polished, dyed, sealed, drilled, and wire wrapped then attached to earring posts. Every pair of Lauren Earrings are made by hand in Austin, Texas, USA by our artisans that are paid ethical, living wages. Before each is sent out, they are inspected again for quality, before being carefully packaged and shipped out. $5 is donated to the charity of YOUR choice, because, well that's what we're all about. What's more? In crystal healing, Howlite is often used as a stone of awareness, as it is believed to help in understanding yourself, others, and the surrounding world, because of this, it is commonly used to aid in meditation and focussing of the mind.
