About

Vintage Postage stamp Jewellery - an Epic Love

I opened Starzyia in 2009 with the aim of rehabilitating myself and gaining financial independence (earning my way off my disability pension) but what makes me jump out of bed in the morning is creating and sharing meaningful jewellery to enrich your life.

Its one thing to have a favourite piece of jewellery, but when you know what it means, you can fully appreciate what it adds to your life, how it inspires you, how it heals you, and why it makes you feel the way you do when you wear or behold it. That is what I am committed to creating for you.I want you, and the people you care about to have something you can look at and hold that reminds you to be positive, think and feel great things about yourself and about life, and that is what you can find here at Starzyia, especially for you.

♥ I also love to create jewellery with vintage postage stamps, I have literally thousands of postage stamps that came on letters to my grandmother from friends and family scattered across Eastern Europe for over sixty years. The news each stamp carried is a mystery, but it was deeply personal between women. It was a friendship, and a love, and not giving up on a person even though they would never see each other again in this lifetime. They felt the need to connect, to love, to care for each other, and share the highs and lows of life. And they did it letter after letter spanning decades. Each letter was part of something I consider to be an Epic Love.

>>> Postage Stamps are proof that humans seek one another out, that we care, that we seek people to share life with, that we have something worth saying <<<<

I also operate Starzyia V on etsy for vintage finds

  • Starry

    Owner, Maker, Designer, The Dreamer Who Makes Everything Happen

    My creativity is driven by the underlying meaning and energy of each piece which can be symbolic or literal, through use of words. I use my original photography, graphic design, paper cutting and paper collage, and vintage postage stamps.

Production partners

    My original photography is printed to archival standard. All my items are in stock - I don't print to order or drop ship so I know the quality of each item and vouch for it.

    Starzyia gift tags and postcards are printed in Australia by this company, I receive them, examine their high quality and complete the transition into swing tags myself. I then prepare each customer's order, wrap and ship them myself.

Frequently asked questions

Express Shipping

Express Shipping is available to Australian residents for most items, by using the shipping upgrade at checkout. *Please note I am unable to ship anything on Tuesdays, this effects Express options too, which will be sent on Monday morning or Wednesday morning onwards as soon as possible. Express Shipping is via Australia Post and can take 1-3 days, allow for 4 if you live in a regional/isolated area.
** I am unable to Express ship to International addresses.

Holiday & Special Occasion delivery advice

A general guide to delivery times is:
* Australian orders standard 7-10 business days (with delays up to 3 weeks on rare occasions)
* US and International delivery standard can take up to 8 weeks, though many parcels are received between 9-21 business days.

The date your order is to ship by will appear on your receipt.

Late, Lost, and Missing Parcels

In addition to the standard estimated time for delivery, I need to allow a leeway for customs and extraordinary circumstances beyond my control.

If your Australian delivery has not arrived within 3 weeks from the date of shipping I will arrange a refund or replacement.

If your US or International delivery has not arrived within 8 weeks from the date of shipping I will arrange a refund or replacement.

Jewellery Care Instructions

All jewellery orders have a care card included in the parcel, please save this, its great advice that will prolong the life of all your jewellery.

The essential care details are to keep all jewellery dry, and dust free. Exposure to moisture, dust, and beauty and body products including perfume, body lotions, and hairspray are the primary causes of tarnish.

Ear wires can be gently wiped with soft cotton jersey when removed at the end of the day.

VAT, Customs & Import Fees and Taxes

All Starzyia item prices and shipping costs do not include VAT and other import fees and taxes for international orders, if these costs occur they are paid by buyers directly to the collecting agency in your region.
GST is not charged on Australian orders.
