About ShySiren

Sales 9,290
On Etsy since 2007

Grateful To Do What I Love

People ask me all the time:
Why ‘Shy Siren’?

For me, to be a ‘Shy Siren’ is to feel beautiful, sensual & alluring in your own unique, understated way–inside & out. Just the right amount of demure + confidence, romance + irreverence… a balance of timelessness & edge, grit + sparkle.

Celebrate the complex dualities that make up your whole–and express that spirit!

My jewelry is handmade with near-obsessive amounts of love & attention, and is presented to absolutely delight the receiver. The perfect gift for a loved one, or for yourself.

I hope you find pieces in my jewelry collection that whisper to your inner & outer Siren too.
My diverse background in 'all-things-design' gives me a unique lens through which to view the world of jewelry. I painstakingly create each design with an eye toward both aesthetics and functionality, and I take great pleasure in the play of light and the colors of the materials I works with.

After graduating from Cornell University's College of Architecture, I ventured to New York City to work in the architecture design industry. I left the profession to co-launch Four Eyes Productions, a web design & development studio. Over 18 years later, Four Eyes is going strong, and I still love to do graphic design work--a wonderful "digital" complement to making (very "analog") jewelry. Photography is also a long-time passion of mine, and it's a skill I use every day at Shy Siren. I feel entirely grateful that I have been able to create a livelihood doing all the things I LOVE to do.

For budding jewelry makers, please check out my 'how-to' jewelry book, "Perfect Match: Earring Designs for Every Occasion", with step-by-step instructions for creating more than 40 earring projects:

HELLO and thank you so much for stopping by!



Each order arrives in a signature Shy Siren jewelry gift box. In order to reduce waste and excess shipping costs, I may combine multiple pieces into one larger gift box. If you would like separate gift boxes, please just let me know & I will be very happy to accommodate!

Returns and exchange details
I want you to love the pieces you buy at the Shy Siren shop. If you're not absolutely delighted, please contact me within 10 days of receipt to coordinate an exchange or refund. I'll need to receive your item back within 21 days of your receipt (3 weeks).

Please send your items back to me in the original protective and gift packaging via a trackable courier (USPS/UPS/FedEx). Please also consider purchasing tracking and insurance, as I am not responsible for items lost or damaged in the return transit back to me.

If a mistake is made on my end with your order, or if an item was received damaged, I will gladly provide you with a pre-paid shipping label for the return back to me, and we will coordinate either a replacement or a refund! Otherwise, shipping of your return or exchange is the responsibility of the customer.

To be eligible for a full return (minus shipping costs), your item MUST be unused/unworn/unaltered and in the same condition in which you received it. It must also be in the original packaging.

If the returned item is visibly worn, used, altered or damaged by customer or without complete packaging, a re-stocking fee of 20% - 50% will be assessed based on the return condition, unless we have otherwise discussed and agreed on a solution PRIOR to the return.

If you have any questions whatsoever, please feel free to contact me! I am happy to try to troubleshoot any issues that may arise.
I accept Visa, Mastercard, AmEx, Discover, PayPal & Etsy gift cards!

The customer is responsible for any customs or duties taxes on the order.

If a Reserved listing or Custom listing is requested, I will hold the item for 48 hours. If after 48 hours the listing is left unpurchased, the item(s) will be un-reserved/sale canceled and those items will be made available to other customers. Thank you for your cooperation & timely payment.

If you have a discount code, please check to be sure that it is valid at the Shy Siren shop on Etsy. Please only one promotion per order (including Free Shipping specials). Discount codes may be applied only once. Thank you!

MOST ORDERS ship within 1-3 business days (Mon-Fri) of your payment. Some items have a longer lead time, and I mention this lead time in the item description.

All standard shipments are shipped via First Class (USA) & First Class International (Foreign). USA shipments include Delivery Confirmation.

USA orders have the option to upgrade to USPS PRIORITY MAIL during checkout for a nominal upcharge.

If your order is of high dollar value and shipping to the USA, I may opt to ship your order with Signature Confirmation. This is at no extra cost to you, but to ensure a secure delivery.

Please allow approx. 3-4 weeks for your order to arrive. With COVID and tight labor markets, some destinations are taking even longer, and I gratefully appreciate your patience during this unprecedented time. Some international shipments can be delayed due to Customs, so please allow extra time for this possibility (occasionally as much as 4-6 weeks).

The customer is responsible for any customs or taxes due. Sorry, I can not mark your purchase as a "gift" for the purposes of Customs.

To fulfil your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorized Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information (for a custom order of jewelry, for example), if you contact me directly.

I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:
as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfil your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support; when you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time, such as by signing up for my mailing list; if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and as necessary for the purpose of my legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as 1) providing and improving my services. I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest to improve my services; and 2) Compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.

If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. I describe these rights below:

- Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting me using the contact information below.

- Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict my use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where I am required to store data for legal reasons) I will generally delete your personal information upon request.

- Object. You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.

- Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.

If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact me, Sara Schwittek, at sara [!at] or through the Etsy Conversation (“Convo”) system through your Etsy account.
