Announcement   welcome to Arey jewelry by vintagesue... where the past meets the present with offbeat jewelry, hand-assembled with both vintage cast offs and new pieces to create something one of a kind, whimsical, mysterious, shabby, and fun...something that truly speaks to you without breaking the bank~ :) i specialize in mystic, altered, alchemy and salvage jewelry with a scrappy, boho flair.

i am currently not making custom orders.

PLEASE, PLEASE read my policies and shop announcements. they are important! i want a happy customer and my policies will help you decide if you are going to buy from me or not... :) they are the cornerstone to my shop!

i ship packages out in a timely manner, but it is NOT my fault if the postal service is slow and your package doesn't arrive on the expected delivery date. i have no control over that!!! i really don't. i do not give refunds for lost, delayed or stolen mail. once you buy from me, it is a contract that says you understand this and you are taking your chances with the good ole USPS. i have never lost a package in 5 years, but be patient...the mail runs slow sometimes. it doesn't always get delivered during the estimated time. PLEASE, PLEASE contact me if you need your items stat! i will gladly adjust your shipping to priority before you pay so your items can get to you quicker or by a certain date and even then there are no promises. if you need your package overnight, let me know and i will adjust the shipping rate for that as well! when you receive a tracking number, that means your package shipped. please use that tracking number to check the status of your package. first class and priority can take up to a month to ship during peak seasons (holidays)

i no longer ship internationally. sorry.

NOTE::::::i love to be creative and make something unique and OOAK from cast offs~NOTE::::: on the other hand, i upcycled and recycle junk jewelry, vintage pieces, cast off costume jewelry and reuse beads and components...what does this mean? it means that some items may have wear, patina, faded areas, missing stones, imperfections, chips, and other flaws that i believe add interest to a homespun piece. there is no guarantee that a piece won't lose a stone or become more worn over time or have flaws when i make them. this is part of the vintage experience....i sell my items as found and try to point out flaws in my descriptions. sometimes i will clean a piece of jewelry and other times they are sold as found. please ask questions before purchasing....:)
NOTE::::most of my jewelry is LARGE. if you are looking for petite, dainty earrings, necklaces, bracelets or rings, you are probably looking at the wrong shop. LOL. please be aware almost all my earrings are over 2" long...pendants are large, rings are statement pieces. please ask questions about approx. lengths before purchasing.
NOTE:::: i also can't guarantee that the metals i use with repurposed vintage aren't lead and nickle free. some are found pieces and unknown metals. i use stainless steel and brass for ear wires. my earwires are always lead and nickle free as far as i know. i buy alloy charms that are new and lead and nickle free. my jewelry is not intended for children. some of my earrings are heavy. please note that before buying. i would advise not to wear heavy pieces for countless hours. should be worn for a few hours at a time. please ask question before you buy. thank you
NOTE:::i am not a jeweler. i am not a professional or expert on vintage jewelry. i upcycle and hand-assemble pieces i find interesting and captivating. sometimes i mix and match nice stones with costume. i can't always guarantee what a piece is made of, identify a stone or vintage on items i repurpose. i do my best to make an estimate. please ask me questions before a purchase if you need to know more info. thank you.

shipping will now be about every 3 days or so. if you need a package stat, you won't be guaranteed it will ship the next day or even the following day. i just moved to a new area and i'm not sure how shipping will work for me here yet.

i appreciate your business and your support ~ i am a one woman operation and run this site to the best of my ability. i want each transaction to be a good experience for both you and me. communication is the key :) please don't hesitate to ask me questions before you make a purchase. please don't hesitate to convo me with concerns, but honor my policies and read my shop announcements. these are the cornerstones of what i do and how i operate. thank you so much!!!! :) i really do strive to make each order a fun experience. if there is a problem, please try to work with me so we can resolve it together. thank you so much. i really do pour my heart and soul into this shop :)

About

VinTagE crazed JeWelrY DabbLEr!

i am an old soul...i have loved vintage and antique as long as i can remember. i played in my parent's attic for hours with my grandmother's clothing and jewelry...i remember trading knick-knacks for snacks with my friends as a child. my blood runs vintage...LOL!
i am a military wife, which means moving and moving and moving!~ that said...i have dabbled here and there, but finally decided on making upcycled jewelry out of anything that strikes my fancy!~ i worked in advertising for years, writing copy for radio ads and designing ads for a newspaper. i have a B.F.A. with a major in painting and a minor in graphics.....moving every 2 years is a challenge for a home studio filled to the brim with paints, so i traded in the paintbrush for some beads!!! now i have to move every 2 years with a room filled to the brim with beads!!!! LOL!

the name of my shop, Arey, came from combining my kids' names together....Arek and Zoey and hence, Arey by Vintagesue became my store name. the word Arey in the dictionary is defined as conveying appreciation and i do!!!!!!!!!

i pride myself on great prices for homespun, homemade, vintage inspired pieces that are whimsical, sparkly, and one of a kind!~ i find myself daydreaming quite often about
what i can make and how it will look. i tend to sketch out ideas and get really excited when they come to life!~i am more about creativity than i am technique, which means you get a fun product at a great price, but it may not be made to perfection!~ a little shabby and very homemade!~

hope you enjoy my little shop!!! thanks for stopping by! you can find me on facebook for shop announcements and mini sales not listed here. i often have coupon codes only listed for facebook viewers...thanks so much...https://www.facebook.com/Vintagesue/

you can find my jewelry on pinterest here

welcome to vintagesue. i love to make upcycled jewelry!!! i am excited to sell these as well as a few craft items and some vintage clothing.....i pride myself on affordable vintage upcycled handmade jewelry!!!
i hope to create a fun environment and an enjoyable shopping experience for you!
i use items that are vintage. what does that mean? it means items may be tarnished, slightly damaged, missing stones, but the OOAK value of a timeworn, vintage piece adds a unique look when incorporated with something new. i also from time to time use unknown metals mixed with known metals. please ask questions about the metal types before purchasing. i hope you will find treasures here that speak to your heart...

Shipping
i ship most U.S. packages first class. large orders, lots and bigger items will ship priority. when shipping is confirmed, a tracking number is added. i do not add insurance to first class mail. if you need this, please let me know before you pay and i will add it. flat rate priority comes with standard insurance of $50. i have no control of packages once they leave the post office. first class can ship in as little as 3 days or as much as 4 weeks or more. i can give you a tracking number to check the status of a package and help as much as possible to find package once it is shipped, but i have no control of how long it takes to get to you. please be mindful of this when you order. it is never my intent to hold a package and lie that it shipped. if you need a package quickly or by a certain date, convo me for a priority rate before purchasing and give me enough time to make this work. thanks :) without you ordering insurance, i cannot be responsible for lost or stolen mail. i do my best to refund shipping overages if they are more than $1.00.
Additional policies and FAQs
all items are vintage and are sold as is in vintage condition. i make items with upcycled and repurposed materials that are in VINTAGE condition...which means an item may not be perfect and may have wear.....stones missing, tarnished, etc...
i also do not take any responsibility for an item causing injury (sharp edges on pins, rust on metal, reactions to metal, etc....) i will try to show you flaws or describe as i see fit. i use stainless steel and lead and nickle free ear wires to the best of my ability, i buy new charms that are lead and nickel free, but other metals used in my jewelry are unknown sources and aren't as easily identified. my jewelry is not intended for children. please do not ask me to make jewelry for children. thank you.
please inquire about an item before purchasing if you are unsure about the quality, size or materials or need additional information. thanks.
i no make reserves.
