Thank you for 12 YEARS on ETSY!

THIS WAS A HAPPY ACCIDENT
My background:
I was raised in Indiana and moved to NYC for college. I am a Pratt graduate with a BFA in Art Direction for Advertising and Publishing. My studio workspace migrates between my loft space in my home on a small barrier island overlooking the Atlantic Ocean in Long Island and a little mountain house in the Catskills we have up there. You can't beat the silence and beauty of these kinds of landscapes for design inspiration.

I started making jewelry 12 years ago completely by accident.
I had an art gallery as a second career after 20 years in advertising and publishing and a gal wanted to come in and teach jewelry making so I said SURE, OKAY, was quickly roped in to join the class (which all of my friends had signed up for) and got hooked from day one.

I absolutely love creating jewelry and it never ever feels like a job. I call it going to play, not going to work in fact. HA.

I have tons of jewelry VIDEOS on my Instagram account, @SueanneShirzay and my Facebook account, Sueanne Shirzay Artisan Jewelry. Please click on the Facebook Link to get to my Business Facebook page. I do the occasional giveaway also from there.

I love working with wholesale clients as well as retail.
My jewelry is currently available at:
My main website, Shirzay.com
By appointment only in my pop up showroom at Carpet Craft and Home in Island Park, Long Island, New York
Perch Home in Maplewood New Jersey
Herbie's Rock Pile in Whittier CA
and other home boutiques in NYC and Long Island and internet venues.

Please let me know if you would like to carry my jewelry in your shop. It's very easy to order from this site as well as my main site. I just need your resale # and I'll give you a code.

Shop policies

Last updated on August 7, 2020
It's fun to make something with my own hands that goes on to become a part of someone else's life. Just to know that somewhere out there right now might be someone feeding their kids, working, going to the gym, laughing with girlfriends over cosmos, or having a romantic dinner... all while wearing something I made. I get such a thrill when something I make suits somebody so perfectly.

POLICIES

SUEANNE SHIRZAY JEWELRY MAY NOT BE WORN ON CHILDREN UNDER THE AGE OF 12.

**NO WORRIES GIFT POLICY: I accept exchanges 2 weeks after delivery date for any purchase with the note GIFT in checkout notes on it or a convo *before or AT the time of purchase* indicating that it is a GIFT.** If there is no such note, then my standard 7 DAYS after purchase DELIVERY return policy applies.

FAQ: //// WHEN WILL I GET IT/THEM? Please check shipping time for each individual item or your receipt if purchase has already been made. Any shipping delays due to travel etc will also be noted in shop announcements. My normal turnaround from order to *out the door* is one to seven business days. This can be much shorter during a slow week or a touch longer if I am swamped. ( . For speedy delivery please choose the USPS EXPRESS 2 day extra shipping charge or PRIORITY charge in CHECKOUT. These are available with each item in the CHECKOUT field. If you have any issues with your item please contact me via convo immediately.

NOTE TO BUYERS regarding FEEDBACK: Due to an increase in extortion attempts via the Etsy review system I feel obligated to state that I do not negotiate with people who leave bad reviews *intentionally hoping to get free jewelry*. YES, this is happening now. Feedback extortion is against Etsy Terms Of Use. All such attempts are reported to Etsy and the proper authorities. I'm sorry a few people are ruining the true meaning of this marketplace for everyone.

TRACKING: Every item has a tracking number in the US. When an item ships I mark it as shipped in your "purchases" section with a tracking number.

Customers are required to provide the correct shipping address on their orders. I am not responsible for the loss of items shipped to the wrong address because the wrong address was supplied by the customer. If you enter the wrong address at checkout the order will have to be cancelled and re-purchased to get the correct address on the order.

CARE OF JEWELRY: I use top of the line products but keep in mind that these little works of art need to be treated respectfully. Many items used are fragile. I highly discourage pulling on or off, tugging at, cleaning your house while wearing, or throwing into the pit of your purse, etc... NO JEWELRY, including mine, should be worn while bathing, swimming, hot tubbing, exercising or sleeping. I take pride in my workmanship and try to make high quality jewelry. I will cover some minor repairs free of charge. Please contact me regarding any repair issues. All shipping costs for repairs are the buyers responsibility.

INTERNATIONAL IMPORTANT NOTE:
It is the buyers responsibility for payment of all CUSTOMS duty taxes and fees for their purchase. Customers are responsible for their country laws and restrictions. If the customer refuses their package because they do not want to pay customs taxes and fees, or customs refuses delivery due to restrictions, no refunds or replacement/exchange of product is granted-no exceptions. It is impossible for the seller to know the laws, taxes and fees of your country.
Note: It is illegal to ask the seller to lower the value of your package to avoid Duty tax.

***International and Domestic orders***
Orders paid through paypal must be shipped to the address on the paypal account, no exceptions. All orders paid through Etsy Direct check out, orders are shipped to your address on Etsy. There will be no refund, exchanges, cancellations or replacements for packages that are shipped to the incorrect address due to customer error. If package is returned to me, it will be the customers responsibility to supply the seller with the correct shipping address and customer pays to reship the returned order. Per International: seller is not responsible for duty taxes/fees under any circumstances.

SHOWROOM/ IS THERE MORE JEWELRY? My pop up showroom in Island Park NY is open by appointment for your convenience at 4410 Austin Blvd. Island Park, NY.

QUANTITY: Is there more than one of each item available? Usually. Let me know if you need more than one.

WHAT IF IT BREAKS or I LOSE AN EARRING?
I don't have many things that break, but accidents do happen. Sometimes repairs are free, sometimes I have to charge a very small fee. It just depends. Do not hesitate to ask. Repairs are at the sellers discretion, and not all things can be repaired. Buyer is responsible for shipping charges. I can generally make replacement earrings if you send me the original for half of what you paid as long as I can still get the materials.

CALL ME, CONVO ME: MANY but not all items ARE ready to ship fast. If you need shopping assistance or something quickly, please call me 8 AM to 5 PM EST at 516 241-5836 or let me know in convo. and I'll do what I can to make you smile.

DO I CUSTOMIZE? OF COURSE! All the time.

Additional Policies and FAQs
SUEANNE SHIRZAY JEWELRY MAY NOT BE WORN ON CHILDREN UNDER THE AGE OF 12.
To ensure that your purchase stays pretty, I suggest keeping your piece in a box containing non-tarnish white cotton. You can also put your jewelry in an air-tight plastic bag. I always include these with purchase. Oxidation occurs naturally due to sulfur in the air reacting with the metal. Minor repairs are free for the first year if needed, shipping is the buyer's responsibility. I'm also happy to provide pictures of any item hanging on a person's neck etc. directly to your e-mail.

MORE PRODUCT INFO: Please note that these pieces are not one of a kind unless they are stated as such in the description and the colors, shapes, and sizes may vary slightly from the picture as each stone has its unique personality, just like people. I am not a professional photographer but I always do my very best to capture the piece as close to reality as I possibly can. I consider it my first priority to make you, my customer, happy. Please let me know what I can do to make this happen. : )
Payment
My payment terms are payable upon purchase by paypal, credit card or money order US funds. If the money order is not received in a week, with no communication from the buyer, it is my right to cancel the order. Orders will be shipped immediately upon cleared payment.

Privacy
To fulfill 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.
Why I Need Your Information and How I Use It
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 toimprove 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.
• Information Sharing and Disclosure
• Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:
• Etsy. I share information with Etsy as necessary to provide you my services and comply with my obligations under both the Etsy Seller Policy and Etsy Terms of Use.
• Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
• Business transfers. If I sell or merge my business, I may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.
• Compliance with laws. I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.
• Data Retention
• I retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with my services and as described in my Privacy Policy. However, I may also be required to retain this information to comply with my legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce my agreements. I generally keep your data for the following time period: 4 years.
• Transfers of Personal Information Outside the EU
• I may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the US and other jurisdictions. As a result, I may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction. If I am deemed to transfer information about you outside of the EU, I rely on Privacy Shield as the legal basis for the transfer, as Google Cloud is Privacy Shield certified.
• Your Rights
• 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.
• For purposes of EU data protection law, I, Sueanne Shirzay, am the data controller of your personal information. If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact me at sshirzay [!at] aol.com. Alternately, you may mail me at:
