Dress Earrings - Vintage Couture Jewelry - Couture Earrings - Fashion Dress - Wearable Fashion - Vintage Dress - Wearable Fashion - Plastic Art - Vintage Dress - 1910s - Victorian Dress - Titanic fashion
Beautiful romantic 1910s dress reproduced into cute earrings to wear! I had so much fun designing these original earrings by placing them on a dress form and hanging them from ear wires. The gown looks great! Each charm has the IDENTICAL image on the opposite side so that you look stunning from all directions! The edges are fully hand-painted in gold in addition to antiqued brass findings.
♥ Dimensions ♥
Each charm measures just 1 1/2" high by 5/8" wide; with the post the earrings measure 1 3/4" tall. A great size!
♥ Materials ♥
Printable shrink plastic paper :: shrinkydink shrinkles polyshrink grafix shrink :: paint, ink, sealer, antiqued brass findings.
♥ Craftsmanship and Handmade Process ♥
Each of my treasures is * handmade by me * in my home and begins as a blank sheet of shrink plastic. I then manipulate that paper in a careful series of steps to produce the finished piece of jewelry you see listed. Shrink plastic charms are flat, but I may curve them during the heating process for desired effect. I print *BOTH* sides of my charms for a quality, finished look. I wouldn't have it any other way! :) My plastic is nice and thick and averages about 2mm thickness for a sturdy feel.
♥ Care ♥
My shrunken treasure is not designed or intended to be worn in the bath, shower, pool, lake, etc. However, the charms are not made of sugar and are nicely sealed to help protect them from the occasional bit of water. Detailed care and use instructions ship with the item.
♥ Shipping ♥
Domestic orders within the United States are $3 per item. And only 25 cents more for each additional item! A lovely pillow box, handmade by me, or sturdy gift box, is what they come wrapped in!
International orders -- A very reasonable flat rate is charged. Please follow the link below for details as they are very important. A sturdy cardboard box is used to keep your shrunken treasure safe on it's journey to you.
Thank you for stopping to have a look at my one-of-a-kind shrunken treasure, and may the Faux be with you!

I accept PayPal (Credit or Debit Card), Etsy's Direct Checkout, and Gift Cards.
IMPORTANT PLEASE READ: Please make sure your PayPal and/or Etsy address is CORRECT, as that is the address I will ship to. If you would like your purchase to go to a different address, enter it in the "Message" area during the PayPal checkout process prior to completing your payment. This protects us both and there are no exceptions.
You are responsible to make sure that your PayPal address is updated, complete, and correct. Be sure to include apt or unit #'s. If your address is wrong or incomplete, and the USPS deems it undeliverable, you will be responsible for all shipping costs, including the cost to reship.
If you are new to Etsy, this link will guide you through the Payment process:
All of my shipping is to be done via USPS First Class mail through Etsy. Items are shipped in a very carefully wrapped bubble padded envelope mailer.
FOR DOMESTIC USA SHIPPING:
SHIPPING IS $4.00 for items up to 3oz in weight. Additional items will cost an extra 25 cents per item. I will pick up the tab for the insurance. I ALWAYS insure my packages :)
USPS First Class means it SHOULD get to you within 3 days, however, it can take up to 8 days to get your treasure! Please keep that in mind before panicking. Thankfully, this is not generally the case and items arrive much sooner :) First Class shipping does NOT include delivery confirmation, but it DOES include tracking and insurance!
Priority Mail, if desired, will be at the additional cost charged by the USPS (small flat-rate box is $7.00). Please let me know in the Notes section, during the checkout process if you wish to have your items sent by Priority Mail. In that case I will send you a PayPal Invoice for the postage amount which must be paid prior to shipping your item. Having said that, Priority Mail doesn't really seem to speed up the arrival date of packages very much, but it does include being shipped inside of a very sturdy box.
I also offer USPS Express Mail which guarantees 1-2 day delivery. But please keep in mind that I work a full-time, non-Etsy job during the week. For example: if you place an order at 10 AM on Tuesday, it will not ship out until Wednesday afternoon. This is because the post office is closed by the time I get home on Tuesday and therefore, cannot be shipped the same day.
I place each treasure you buy into an adorable handmade pillow box or cardboard box. If you wish the item to be shipped unwrapped, I can include the flattened pillow box so that you may use it to wrap the gift for someone special! Just make the request and let me know.
FOR INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING/BUYERS:
Items will be shipped in a small jewelry box placed within a padded bubble mailer envelope. For purchases over $25.00 your purchase will be insured.
Items are shipped by USPS First Class Mail purchased through Etsy, and are normally shipped within 2 business days, but this depends on order volume and inclement weather (I live in cold, snowy Michigan!). If there will be a delay of more than 2 days in shipment, I will notify you.
Tracking information will be sent to you automatically upon shipment, but please remember that tracking may not be available internationally.
Depending on the item(s) shipped, and at my discretion, Signature Confirmation might be required. However, should your total purchase order meet or exceed $100.00, Signature Confirmation WILL be required. This is both for your protection and mine.
Insurance against loss or damage is included and is reflected in the Shipping cost on the item listing page. If you elect to have it shipped by Priority Mail International, please let me know in the NOTES section of your payment that you wish a Priority Mail shipping upgrade. In that case, I will invoice you separately, via PayPal, for the additional cost, which must be paid prior to shipment.
Rates for USPS Priority First-Class Mail International currently costs between $20.00 and $35.00, sometimes more. Regardless of how you elect to have your item shipped, please be aware that delivery times vary immensely depending on the destination, and can take anywhere between 2-4 weeks, and sometimes longer if held up by customs officials. Please prepare yourself for the wait that can accompany an internationally shipped item.
VERY IMPORTANT: Import duties, VAT, tariffs, taxes, and any other fees imposed by your country are NOT included in the item price or shipping cost. These additional costs are the BUYER'S responsibility. PLEASE check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs might be PRIOR to your purchase, so that there are no unwelcome surprises for you. Also, I do not declare items as "gifts". It is against United States law. I appreciate your understanding.
For multiple, combined, purchases: I have set up my Shipping Fees to allow you to have a reduced charge for multiple purchases, which must be paid for in ONE single payment. Items purchased separately will result in an over payment of shipping costs.
If you need clarification regarding any the above, please feel free to email me.
Of course my wish is that you adore my work. Alas, if it is not what you wanted, you may return the item for a full refund (minus the cost of shipping).
However, it must be returned (put back into the mail) within 7 days of receiving the item, NO EXCEPTIONS, and I ask that you let me know as soon as possible that you are returning it so that I expect it in the mail.
The item must be returned to me in unused, original condition with the original packaging. This allows me to re-list the item.
It is advised you insure the package as I cannot give a refund for an item I do not receive back from you.
There are no refunds on CUSTOM ORDERS, all sales are FINAL.
I spend a lot of time making my "jewels", especially items that are very intricate or that have many charms. Because they are handmade and of the shrink paper/plastic medium, each piece may not be EXACTLY alike. This of course is the sweet part of being handmade, one-of-a-kind, and unique.
I do my best to describe my items as accurately as possible and in most cases do not use a stock photo to sell multiple items unless explicitly stated in the item's listing. The photos you see are of the item(s) you will be purchasing. If you have additional questions, please please please ask me, I will be happy to accommodate you.
Also, keep in mind colors may be slightly different depending on your computer monitor, so allow for a possible slight difference.
I seal all of my treasures in acrylic sealer which helps to protect them from the elements. While this helps with the occasional splash of water, it is not advised that they be worn when bathing, showering, swimming, extensive hand-washing where the item is allowed to repeatedly get wet, or any environment that exposes them long-term to high humidity or rough wear.
By nature, shrink plastic is quite robust, but some pieces that I design are intricately cut, which makes them somewhat more fragile. Jewelry/Items should NOT be worn or placed where they will be exposed to rough treatment (playing sports, rough work, or rough environments where they may catch on things, etc.) PLEASE take care and be gentle with all pieces. They will last you a long time if cared for properly.
Lastly, many of my creations are made of small pieces/parts. These items are NOT intended to be worn by the very young and pose a choking hazard if ingested. Please be vigilant and keep these items away from small children to keep them safe. Buyer assumes ANY and ALL responsibility in keeping their purchased items away from small children.
All of my treasures are specially handmade with loving care by me in Jackson, Michigan USA
