PLEASE NOTE TRACKING IS INCLUDED FOR ORDERS WITHIN AUSTRALIA
My free shipping option for International orders unfortunately does not include tracking numbers, so even though we ship within the time frame given on each listing, we can't control just how long it will take to get to you. If you'd like to upgrade to shipping with tracking, please choose from the drop down box before checking out.

Due to having the tracked postage option, we will not issue a refund or replacement for any items purchased using the free shipping option.

About

Where vintage inspired, vintage and new all come together...

Annie By Design is my little haven where I create, I love, I live. The name comes from a horse I won some money on which helped me buy my first set of tools!

Redesigned, Reclaimed, Reloved.... A blend of contemporary and vintage style pieces with an eco-friendly and sustainable focus. I like to take vintage styles and redesign them so that they have a more contemporary feel but I also like to design contemporary pieces and give them a Mid Century, Art Deco or Seventies Glam style.

There are so many gorgeous vintage elements out there. Some are the inspiration for what I create and others are the main pieces. I like to reclaim vintage elements that have lived a life and add them to my designs so they can live on and gather more stories along their journey. I also love classic jewellery, pieces that stand the test of time so I try to mix up my range by adding some new pieces in with the upcycled. Some of the new pieces are vintage inspired and others are just simple and classic. Other pieces are inspired by my muse, my friends daughter, Rory. She is a free spirit, a princess, batman and a unicorn all rolled into one.

90% of the materials used in my designs is either reclaimed and recycled, produced from renewable materials or sourced from manufacturers that use manufacturing processes that employ ecologically sound methods.
One of the main reasons I use vintage elements is so that I can save them from landfill. We have become a throwaway society so it makes sense to me to take gorgeous elements from yesteryear and recycled metals and turn them into something that can be cherished for generations. Less being thrown away and more unique jewellery being added to jewellery boxes.

I am an avid sport watcher (why didn't they offer 'sport watching' as a class in high school? I would have aced it) and my partner and I love to travel to watch sporting events.

I am in the first stages of my dream and I am taking little steps at the moment but I am 'forging' on, hammer in hand. As they say "If you don't dream big, what's the use in dreaming?"

HOURS:

I try to answer convos and emails between 11am and 6pm Australian Eastern Standard Time (AEST) but will sometimes answer outside these hours.
I often take Saturdays and Sundays off.
I post items on Monday to Friday

HOLIDAY CLOSURES:

Annie By Design will be closed on the following dates in 2018:

Frequently asked questions
Tracking

Please note that TRACKING IS INCLUDED WITH DOMESTIC ORDERS. Australia Post does not include tracking as standard for international orders so each of my listings will give you the opportunity to choose Tracked shipping for international buyers. If the item you are purchasing does not include a tracking option and you'd like to upgrade to shipping with tracking, please let me know. However, this is expensive, especially with international orders.

Items are wrapped and shipped in a cd mailer. This flat-packing method saves considerable shipping costs.

There may be delays in shipping times during the Christmas period or over public holidays in Australia or other countries.

Missing Items

Should your item not arrive within the expected time frame then please contact me.
I will do my best to fix the situation but please be aware that a parcel is not considered to be 'lost' in the mail until it has been missing for a full 30 days from the date of shipping.

Purchasing a Ring

Please ensure that you know your ring size. Your ring is a custom design made to your size and I cannot refund your purchase if you give me the wrong size or change your mind. In accordance with Australian Consumer Law, it is your responsibility to give me the correct size. I may be able to exchange if I can resell the original ring but I cannot guarantee I will have the same cabs in stock as they are genuine vintage.

Most local jewellers will happily size your finger for you at no charge. You can use an online size gauge but this is not as accurate as having your finger sized properly by a jeweller. When purchasing a ring with a thicker band you may need to go up one size so it fits over your knuckle.
