Announcement   Welcome to Jewelry Stories, a place to discover stories written not with a pen but with antique, semi-precious stones, silver, natural beads, and more.
Each piece is lovingly handcrafted by me, Marjon Barton, in a smoke and pet free environment (I do feed the 6, soon to be 7, generations of stray cats in the neighborhood though!).
I try to capture each piece of jewelry to the best of my ability but please note that each computer screen displays colors slightly differently!
Also, please make sure to read my policy section before making a purchase, especially the section on shipping and packaging.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Enjoy “reading” my stories.

Thrilled to get your I Care package! It arrived in very fine condition and will grace my neck very soon. Thanks for the outstanding item and easy service, from way over there. Thank you. Beautiful to own.

I don't know what to say: This and the other necklace I purchased will be treasured for years to come. The artist took great care in stringing beads that truly live up to the shop's name: They have stories to tell. They are properly portrayed, and they are beautifully packaged -- with a postcard photo of the piece ordered and description of the beads' history. If you have a bit of money to spare, and you love rustic, elegant pieces, consider this shop. I'll be ordering again. Thank you!

About

Hello and welcome to my little shop where you can find handmade and one-of-a kind jewelry that often tells a story. My name is Marjon Barton and I’m originally from The Netherlands, or Holland we Dutch like to say. My mom is from Indonesia, Dad is from Holland and I have worked and lived all over the world. (I tend to pause while introducing myself because even though my passport is Dutch the truth is it has been many years since I’ve lived in my passport country.) So you see what I really want to say is I’m from wherever my home is located at the moment.
I currently live and work in chaotic but exciting Vietnam. I’m an Early Childhood Art Teacher and have many interests and hobbies. Traveling to and living in exotic locales has it perks. There are always some adventures waiting to happen, one more market to “raid”, one more shop to peruse, one more treasure to acquire! Alas, there comes a time when the voice inside says: “Stop! This is enough! How many more treasures do you need? How many more necklaces can you make for yourself?” This is how Jewelry Stories and my other shop theScribbleDog came about. A reason to continue to do what I love: sharing my jewelry stories with you.

Shop policies

Last updated on February 28, 2011
Thanks for stopping by and a warm welcome to my little shop. Please take some time to read these important policies.

Accepted payment methods

  • Other Method
Payment
I accept payment through Paypal only. No paypal account? Don’t worry you can still make a payment without being a member.
Shipping
I will ship anywhere in the world and will use your address registered with Etsy.

Please note that Vietnam is a developing country and we have shipping rules here not necessarily found anywhere else in the world. All items are inspected and wrapped-up by the Vietnam Post Office staff. A package is only considered a package if it is in a box. Don’t ask me why but those are the rules. To ensure safe and speedy delivery of your jewelry, I will send it by registered airmail. On average, packages will take 7 to 21 days to reach their destination but please don’t be surprised if it takes a little longer.

If for some reason you can’t wait that long for your treasure to arrive, we do have international courier services here but at an additional cost. Please contact me first for a quote before purchasing.
Refunds and Exchanges
I want to be sure that you love what you have purchased and will accept returns as long as you contact me within 30 days of your ordering date. Items need to be returned by registered airmail, in their original state and in mint condition. Having said that, please note that I will have to deduct the registered shipping costs incurred by me. Once I’ve had a chance to inspect your returned item(s), I will reimburse you through Paypal.
Additional policies and FAQs
Packaging:
I am not able, at this time, to gift wrap items. Vietnam has strict shipping rules. Every item leaving the country is inspected and wrapped-up by the Vietnam Post Office staff. A package is only considered a package if it is in a box. However, your jewelry will arrive in a waterproof zip-lock bag and will be stored in a pretty organza drawstring bag designed by me and made locally (fair trade). When you purchase a piece of jewelry made by me you also indirectly support disadvantaged women in the Mekong Delta.

Miscellaneous:
For those with allergies or sensitivities, all jewelry is handmade by me in a smoke-free and pet-free environment. I only use natural materials and silver to create my Jewelry.
