About SquarePegsVintage

Sales 60
On Etsy since 2015

I am a longtime vintage jewelry enthusiast and repurposer, as well as all things vintage.

After twenty five years of studying and selling vintage jewelry (primarily costume), as well as designing, it is truly a part of me. I am a treasure hunter and avid recycler. I love to rescue pieces that have been buried or tossed aside, unappreciated in all their potential glory! I use previously manufactured materials as much as possible, in my creations and in packaging and shipping as well.

I also love the process of display. It is similar to painting, with the colors and textures of the jewelry as my palette, or as the subject matter in creating a photographic still-life, and the potential for the telling of a story through images and descriptions. As an artist it is a great creative outlet.

I currently sell in several brick and mortar shops and occasional shows. I have completely embraced Pinterest, and the fun of curating images and ideas. And now I am excited to pursue my new endeavor of selling online and displaying my merchandise on Pinterest as well. My Pinterest user name is Square Peg or click on second "Around the web" link below...I invite you to venture with me into this fascinating and infinite world of beauty, imagination, whimsy and design!

Welcome to Square Peg's Vintage! I've been selling at shows and brick and mortar shops for years, with my sights always set on an Etsy shop, since it has been in existence. I'm so happy to finally be in business here among so many talented people, and discerning customers.

In my selling and making vintage jewelry new for 25 years now, I have learned It is often easy to turn dangly clipons to pierced, to make that choker a little loser, or turn a pin or earring into a necklace. Please feel free to convo me about your special needs, maybe I can help!

Additional policies and FAQs

Most of my HAND MADE items are one of a kind (OAK) due to the uniqueness of the parts and pieces I use, but also, I get bored repeating the same creation. Therefore if a piece has a twin or triplet it will not say OAK in the description.

The VINTAGE PIECES I offer are just that, they have been around for a while and most likely loved and worn by it's previous owner. I refer to this as "Vintage Condition". If I am selling it, it's because I believe it is still wearable for many years to come, if treated gently and stored appropriately. STRINGED NECKLACES are less predictable, so I price them accordingly. If I have restrung it, I include that in the description and it may be a bit more expensive. Also RHINESTONES are commonly glued in and are susceptible to falling out, especially when treated roughly. Because of this, remove rhinestone orders from shipping box or envelope carefully in case any stones fell out during delivery, so they are not lost. In most cases they are easily repaired with original stone. **If you need any advice on cleaning or repair please convo me, I will be happy to share my knowledge.
