About

I create therefore I am

My name is Marja and I come from Riga, the capital of Latvia and a true art-nouveau metropolis. My city with its whimsical diverse architecture has inspired me for years, along with some special people I was lucky to meet, creative souls and the personal icons of mine, who have been my earliest influences. I have practiced drawing and different handicrafts like scrap-booking, knitting, crocheting and embroidery, since my teens or may be even earlier, if sewing dolls' apparel counts. Like many, I started making jewelry after discovering the world of beads. Lampwork and Czech glass - they are so magical, and I can never get enough of new shapes and colors! I also love chunky tribal and recycled glass, and rough gemstones though. In fact I'm discovering new adorable materials all the time!

Working with beads I almost never make sketches. I may bear some idea in mind for weeks before getting down to an actual project, or I may just sit down and start revising my bead collections, and all of a sudden come up with a most awesome design and color combo.
I would call my style eclectic, because I take inspiration in different styles - art-nouveau, ethnic, modern tribal and assemblage. My constant source of inspiration are fellow Etsy artisans. There are so many talented people here who's work I admire! And finally beads themselves often dictate me, what should be done with them.

As for my shop's Vintage Treasures section - it started as a necessity to sell some nice old stuff, that had been stored for ages in my grandma's drawers. BUT, as I am a devoted fan of vintage, wearing it and using it on a daily basis, and since I can't help buying beautiful things whenever I see them, this section has expanded!!

The name of my shop - Grioza - is a Russian word for a Dream. It refers very much to a symbolic painting by Russian artist Mikhail Vrubel "Princessa Grioza" or "A Dream Princess". The imaginary princess comes to visit a dying troubadour, who have dreamed of seeing her even just for a moment before he dies, and it' s like an incarnation of artist' s unattainable dream of reaching the beautiful.

Welcome to Grioza's place!

My store offers whimsical jewelry of original design which will make you feel special among everybody. I have also added a "Vintage Treasures" section recently where you can find finest vintage jewelry, clothing and crafting supplies.

All of the items apart from Vintage Treasures section are made by me using the best materials I can find. I practice eclectic style, in my shop Bohemian chic meets Victorian classics because I'm in love with both. So be sure all of the items are made with love and they'll will bring you joy and good feeling when wearing!

Feel free to browse through my sold items and let me know if you'd like to get some of these pieces! It's possible for most items which were not marked as OOAK.

I love custom orders too!

Shipping

I will ship items to your ETSY address, so please make sure it is correct. Please convo me if you wish your purchase to be shipped to a different address.

All items are shipped from Latvia, European Union, by international priority mail.
Shipping within Europe usually takes 7-14 days. Shipping to USA and other destinations outside Europe takes around 3 weeks. Please take holiday seasons into consideration and allow more time then.

If you need to receive your items by a specific date, which is earlier than the post estimated delivery time, I can ship your order with Express Mail Service. With this option the guaranteed delivery time is 6-8 working days for UK,USA and Canada, 7-13 working days for Australia and 4-6 working days for most European countries. Each country has its own estimate, which can change in a holiday period. If you are interested, please contact me for the quote.

Please consider the shipping terms before placing your order. Orders will not be cancelled due to the inability to be delivered before the time you state in a note to seller or in a convo after placing an order. Orders will not be cancelled either in the case of post failing to deliver packages within their estimated delivery time.

!!! Please be aware of taxes which may be imposed on international parcels by the customs of your country! Any customs duties, taxes, fees are RESPONSIBILITY of a BUYER .
Refunds and Exchanges
Please inspect pictures carefully to make sure you like the piece and don' t hesitate to convo me for more photos at all possible angles if you have doubts, and of course with any questions about an item.

EU buyers can return their items within 14 days after receiving them, and I will issue a refund. Return shipping costs are the responsibility of a buyer.

Please note that the original shipping will be refunded ONLY in case an item was grossly misrepresented by me. Because of different monitor settings colors and shades may look different on your device than they look on mine. This is something I really cannot control, therefore color difference, should it occur, will not count as my fault in representation.
Items must be returned in their original condition and packaging, unused. Refund will be issued by me upon receiving the returned items. Please contact me first prior to sending out the items you wish to return. You can also use this cancellation form prepared by ETSY https://etsy1.app.box.com/s/gaow2mrx67khgbqlqk9p , and send it to me in a convo as an attached file.

Buyers from outside European Union:
Should it happen that you are not happy with Grioza creation you received, please contact me so that I can try to resolve the problem!

If it's been a month since shipping and your package has not arrived yet, please inform me. I will try to look for it through the local post office.
Additional policies and FAQs
About my VINTAGE CLOTHING section:
......Please understand that vintage clothing is not new, it's at least 25 years old, mostly older in my shop; it's been worn and it has history, it might have been washed before - therefore you can't expect same condition as from a brand new item. I do my best to inspect my items for imperfections and mention every one of them. However minor unmentioned things like a spec, a dot, a hang thread, discoloration on the lining, a pin-sized fray, a missing bead, a missing sequin that you may find on your garment do belong to its vintage condition.

If you would like your item to be dry-cleaned before you get it, it can be arranged for an additional fee. The price is about $7 for tops and bottoms and about $13 for dresses, but should be agreed about each particular item. If you are having your item dry cleaned, time of shipping may be later than usual 1 - 3 days. If you are interested, feel free to convo me!

Packaging is one of my favorite stages of the process and it is done most carefully to avoid any damage during transportation.

All jewelry comes in neat boxes or otherwise nicely packaged and ready to be given as a gift! Multiple jewelry items bought with one order will be packaged together into a bigger box unless you let me know which of the items you need to have packaged separately. You can leave me a "note to seller" while checking out, or just convo me prior to ordering or once you've done it.
Items are shipped in bubble envelopes or boxes, depending on the size and nature of a product.

I ship vintage clothing items in bubble mailers. They are carefully folded to fit it, and may need some steaming or ironing upon arrival.

Items come from smokeless home, but I do have a CAT. You may see him in some of my vintage clothing listing photos, but don't worry - he does not have access to the clothing I sell, he may only pass by during a photo shoot!

Thanks for looking and feel free to contact me any time!
