Announcement   If you want to get advance notice of beads that will be listed, follow Artybecca on Facebook. I usually post photos the beads a little while before I list them.
My beads are made by hand, by me, at my little table in my computer room, usually while listening to favorite podcasts or TV shows. Each bead is sanded and buffed to a shiny finish. The photo you see is the exact set you will receive and most of the time your beads are in the mail on the next work day.
To make browsing easier, click on one of the categories at right. Some sets are similar but no two exactly alike so if you see something you like, grab it now!
Check in on Sunday nights to see what's new! I do most of my listing during the weekends.

These beads are handmade by me (usually late at night!) so they may not be 100% perfectly uniform but that's why I string them for the photos -- so you can see how they line up. I try to get each hole as centered as possible and won’t include a bead that won’t hang nicely once strung. I sand the beads and buff to make them very smooth, but they are not a “high-gloss” shine. Keep in mind that it's hard to guarantee you’re seeing the exact same color I am when we’re viewing these images on different monitors. However, I CAN guarantee that I won’t put an item on my page if I wouldn’t wear it or if I don’t think it's pretty!

I attempt to describe as accurately as possible each item I list. If you have any question about an item or need additional photos please do not hesitate to contact me.

Polymer clay holds up very well to normal wear – I have many necklaces of my own beads that I have worn many, many times. However, remember that polymer clay can scratch, chip, or break if you handle it roughly or drop it on a hard surface.

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. 

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;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; andas 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; 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. The spreadsheet of orders each year is provided to my tax accountant to confirm the claims I make for sales vs profit and in-state vs. out-of-state customers. Your information is also seen by postal or shipping companies as needed for delivery. 

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: 7 years for U.S.  tax purposes.

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.
Each year I transfer Etsy sales data to my accountant through Dropbox. If I am deemed to transfer information about you outside of the EU, I usr Dropbox. Its privacy certifications are outlined here: https://www.dropbox.com/help/security/data-transfers-europe-us

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.

How to Contact Me

For purposes of EU data protection law, I, Rebecca Watkins, am the data controller of your personal information. If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact me at berecca [!at] aol.com. Alternately, you may mail me at:
