About

"The love of nature is a passion for those in whom it once lodges. It can never be quenched." - Mary Webb

Nature inspires me. It heals my soul and brings me peace. It allows me to pause a hectic and stressful life, and enjoy moments of stillness and clarity of thought. I'm awed by the beauty and complexity of the natural world, and the creatures that inhabit it. I'm an animal lover at heart, with a deeply rooted respect for wildlife.

If I had to pinpoint what triggered the creation of A Delicate World, I would trace it to a fox I befriended in January 2011 (later nicknamed Squinty). I live in rural Prince Edward Island, and one day saw a fox passing through a neighbouring field. Having a great love of animals, combined with an interest in photography, I decided to head out with my camera. This curious fox noticed me, and approached until there were mere feet separating us! I loved the experience so much that over the next several months, I upgraded my camera equipment and began creating jewelry from my photographs.

The greatest joy I experience with wildlife photography is when my subjects are comfortable enough to ignore me, thus rewarding me with a glimpse into their private lives. It feels as though I'm peering through my lens into another world, far removed from the noise and chaos of daily life. I love being able to share those experiences with others through my photography. Each photograph I take is a moment in time that is meaningful to me.

I've been a needle felting artist for many years, and my sculptures have been featured in several magazines, books, and prominent websites. Since my previous work (Kay's K9s) focused on domestic animals, I wanted my needle felting in this shop to focus on capturing the beauty of wildlife.

I hope my art will inspire you to make room in your life for nature. Our world truly is a delicate world, worthy of admiration and, above all, preservation.

Frequently asked questions
Do you offer engravings or inscriptions? Can I customize my jewelry?

Unfortunately I am not able to engrave or inscribe jewelry. Additionally, I am not able to create jewelry from customer photos. However, I do offer an option to add photos to the INSIDE of lockets (note - this does not change the image on the front and outside of the locket). This option can be purchased for an additional fee through this listing: https://www.etsy.com/ca/listing/571790911/customize-your-locket-personalize-the

If you would like to include a custom photo or message on the inside of your locket, please purchase the customization listing above when purchasing a locket from my shop. Please note, this listing must be purchased in addition to a locket; lockets are sold separately.

Gift wrapping and packaging

All jewelry comes packaged in a jewelry box and a gift bag. A polishing cloth is also included.

If you would like a note card with a personalized message included in your order, please purchase the gift wrapping option and let me know what you would like the card to say. I will handwrite a note with your message and include it inside the gift bag.

If gift wrap is purchased without a message being supplied, a blank card will be included so you can fill in your own message later.

If you include a gift message without purchasing the gift wrap option, a packing slip with your message printed on computer paper will be placed within the package.

Is VAT included? Will I be charged any additional fees upon delivery?

US and Canadian customers will NOT be charged any additional fees upon delivery.

Customers in the UK and EU need to be aware that VAT is not included in the purchase price, thus they may be required to pay additional fees to receive their package from customs. ** VAT is NOT included in the purchase price **

Additional taxes and customs fees may apply to other countries as well. Please be aware of the laws in your own country before ordering online to avoid surprises. I am not responsible for any fees or taxes required to claim the parcel from customs. If you choose not to claim your package, you will not be reimbursed for shipping expenses. Additionally, no refunds will be given until the package returns to me (which can take months).

When will I receive my order?

*During the holiday season, US parcels will be shipped Tracked Packet, which includes tracking and faster delivery (normally 1-2 weeks, although delays can occur).*

Canadian customers are strongly advised to purchase shipping upgrades during checkout for Christmas parcels due to the Canada Post backlog. Standard shipping does not include tracking in Canada.

I ship from Canada and most orders sent standard shipping arrive within 5-15 business days (1 - 3 weeks) after shipment. However, these delivery estimates are not guaranteed and sometimes delivery can take longer. If your order is time sensitive, please purchase a shipping upgrade during checkout.

Do you offer Rush Orders? Can you guarantee delivery by a certain date?

My jewelry is made to order and generally ships within 2-5 business days. Rush orders are not available (my jewelry needs time to dry).

During the holiday season, US parcels will be shipped Tracked Packet, which includes tracking and faster delivery. Tracked Packet is normally delivered in 1-2 weeks, although delays can occur.

Canadian customers are strongly advised to purchase shipping upgrades for Christmas parcels due to current Canada Post backlogs and delays.

If you need your parcel quickly, the best thing to do is pay for a shipping upgrade during checkout.

Unfortunately, I cannot guarantee any package will arrive by a specific date. Shipping times are estimates and some parcels experience customs delays.

Where is my parcel? What is my tracking number?

During the holidays, all parcels to the US will include tracking. Canadian orders will not have tracking unless a shipping upgrade is purchased during checkout.

Most orders sent standard shipping arrive within 5-15 business days (1 - 3 weeks) aftter shipment. However, these delivery estimates are not guaranteed and sometimes delivery can take longer. Shipping upgrades are always recommended for time sensitive parcels.

If your parcel did not arrive within 3-4 weeks please do not panic. Please check that the correct address is listed under order details. Lost parcels are rare, but customs delays do happen from time to time. If 6 weeks has passed since shipment and the parcel has still not arrived, a replacement will be promptly shipped.

Return Policy

If you are unhappy with your purchase, please contact me asap. I do accept returns. Please contact me within 14 days of delivery and let me know you wish to return your order prior to shipping anything back. Please note, all earrings are final sale and cannot be returned due to hygienic reasons.

Return shipping fees are the responsibility of the customer, and no refunds will be given for the original shipping costs unless an error has been made on my part. Items must be returned via regular mail and marked "Returned Goods" on the customs label. All items must arrive in original (new and unworn) condition, including original jewelry box, in order to qualify for a refund or exchange.

Refunds will only be issued to the original purchaser.

Care instructions

My jewelry has been created with real photographs taken by myself. To preserve the ink and maximize the lifespan of each piece, please minimize exposure to moisture, humidity, and sunlight.

My jewelry has been sealed to be water resistant but it is not waterproof, so please avoid exposure to water. Since each piece of jewelry has been created from a genuine photograph, please store it away from light when not in use to keep the inks vibrant.

Sterling silver and other bright silver pieces are best stored in airtight containers and may need occasional cleaning with a polishing cloth to prevent tarnish buildup. A polishing cloth is included with all orders.

If tarnish is a concern, please choose one of my Stainless Steel jewelry pieces.

COPYRIGHT NOTICE - Why are your images watermarked?

All of my photography and images are copyrighted by law. All rights reserved. Using my photography for any commercial purpose is strictly prohibited.

Due to increased theft of my photography, it has become necessary to watermark my photos. Photography prints and jewelry purchased from my shop will not have watermarks on them. These watermarks are added to my online photos only and are intended to discourage theft.
