These are the most perfect, darling little tree earrings. I was looking for something to show off my love of the coniferous forests near my home, and these are just perfect!

I worked on two sets of etched feather earrings at the same time. The larger of the two still needs to have the wire soldered on place before polishing.
Just finished sawing out the mountains from the sheet metal, and have place them on the rectangle pendant. Next step will be to saw out the stick pines and hand stamp the “snow” on the mountain peaks.
Work in progress of the earrings. Just finished sawing out the rectangles and the stick pines on one of the earrings.

About

From Psychology to Jewelry Design

Truth be told, being a jewelry designer wasn’t on my radar when I left home and went to college. I started out earning a degree in Psychology, and was working my way towards a Master’s in Clinical Counseling Psychology when I met and married a handsome Naval Officer. Shortly after getting married, my health took a turn for the worse. Designing jewelry gave me an outlet to take my mind off of my chronic pain, and a great way to express my creativity and bring joy to others. Besides, having a career in the work force can be very challenging when you are moving every couple of years! Designing jewelry and starting my own business just made sense for this creative soul in a nomadic lifestyle.

I am all about creating high quality jewelry that doesn’t easily break, and that is timeless and can be worn with just about any outfit. Attention to detail, quality metals, beautiful gift boxes and incredible customer service are all part of the experience. I truly enjoy bringing a smile (and sometimes tears of joy) to my customers.

Living in the Pacific Northwest and being surrounded by stunning scenery has inspired me to create pieces that showcase my love for this area of the world. I am very passionate about sharing my love of the Pacific Northwest scenery in my creations, and hope you can feel that passion in each piece.

Follow me on Facebook at www.facebook.com/AmbersWhimsy and on Instagram at www.Instagram.com/AmbersWhimsy to check out all of the photos of current and past pieces, and get the latest scoop on sales and free giveaways. If you live locally in Washington state, you can find my creations at Re-Feather Your Nest in Mt. Vernon, and at the Anacortes Vintage Market in Anacortes, WA twice a year (October and April).

Thanks for checking out my Etsy shop! I’m looking forward to serving you and providing you with a little piece of the Pacific Northwest.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING:

I ship via First Class International through USPS, and insure for the value of each item. Items can take up to 6 weeks to arrive. Please be aware that some countries charge VAT taxes, etc that the Seller has no control over. It is the Buyer’s responsibility to research this prior to purchasing, as the Buyer is responsible for any duties or taxes charged on items shipped from the United States. Also, the Seller is not held responsible for delays if package gets stuck in customs.

Additional policies and FAQs
Want to place a custom order? Simply send me a message letting me know what you are wanting, and I'll see what I can do to help you.

Care of items: With proper care, your items will last for years to come. To help prolong your jewelry wearing experience, do not wear your item in the shower or in the pool, or while playing sports or any other heavy duty activity. Sterling silver, brass and copper will tarnish or develop a patina over time. Some people love the look of metal with patina. If you aren't one of them, never fear! I include a small polishing pad with almost all purchases. It has special micro-abrasives in it to help keep your item sparkly and shiny. It can be used until both sides are completely black, then tossed. You can also use a polishing cloth (Sunshine is my favorite!), which can be purchased online.
Privacy
This Privacy Policy describes how and when I collect, use, and share information when you purchase an item from me, contact me, or otherwise use my services through Etsy.com or its related sites and services.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that I do not own or control, including Etsy or any third party services you access through Etsy. You can reference the Etsy Privacy Policy to learn more about its privacy practices.

Information I Collect

To fulfil 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, Amber Rankin, am the data controller of your personal information. If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact me at amberswhimsy [!at] gmail.com. Alternately, you may mail me at:
