Whilst care is taken to ensure that we display as accurately as possible appearances, colours, textures or finishes, what you will see on your computer monitor or equipment may differ and so we cannot guarantee that images are an accurate representation of the actual goods or services that you are purchasing.

Customs and import taxes: As a small business I don’t collect VAT from international customers. The prices on this website are EXCLUDING VAT. International buyers pay VAT and duty on their end, and they should look into what these would be in their country, as they vary.
International buyers (EU customers from 1st July 2021) look into what fees you should expect in your country, before you place your order, becaus we cannot issue a full refund if you refuse import costs in the destination country and return the parcel to us. We can issue partial refund after we got the item(s) back excluding all costs we spent on delivery. If the item isn't returned, or is destroyed, we regret that we cannot issue a refund.
If you wish to cancel an order you have placed you must contact us immediately to ascertain whether the items have been dispatched or not. Where they have been dispatched, you will need to return the item to us and you will be responsible for paying the cost of returning the items.
Where items have not been dispatched prior to a cancellation request, our refund policy will apply.
Where you have ordered a personalised product or comission work you may not be able to cancel for a full refund.
If for any reason you are not completely satisfied, we will accept return (excluding commission work and personalised product). We can offer full refund (postage include) ONLY when the item is not as described or faulty. Otherwise unfortunately I am unable to refund delivery costs and return delivery costs have to be paid by the customer and must provide proof of postage. Please note: even when an item was offered with free postage I will take postage cost - what I spent to post the item - before I refund.
You have 14 calendar days to return a product from the date you received it.
To be eligible for a return, your product must be unused and in the same condition that you received it.
We reserve the right to research the original purchase, and to limit or decline refunds. Once we receive your item, we will inspect it and notify you that we have received your returned item. We will immediately notify you on the status of your refund after inspecting the item.
If your return is approved, we will initiate a refund to your credit card (or original method of payment).
You will receive the credit within a certain amount of days, depending on your card issuer's policies.
Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:
Custom or personalised orders

- How can you get compensation for lost parcel -
If you think your parcel is lost please contact me and I will do my best to help you.
I send parcels with Tracked & Signed service. That is why I can take responsibility after the courier confirms the parcel is lost.
I can take action - making a claim, when the courier treat the item as being lost:
Domestic - after 10 working days from estimated delivery date.
International (EU) - after 20 working days from estimated delivery date.
Inetrnational (Rest of the World) - after 25 working days from estimated delivery date.
After I fill the claim form and show supporting evidence, the courier starts an investigation and comes back to me with their response within the next 30 days (90 days for international claims). If they confirms the parcel is lost and they are not able to deliver it to you I can send replacement or issue a refund.
Please note, I can offer replacement or issue a refund only after courier response.

Information I Collect
To fulfil your order, you must provide me with certain information 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 jewellery, 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 to improve my services;
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:
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.
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.
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.
