About

Telling stories through stones and metal

I consider myself a story teller. And although I do love to write, my passion is telling the stories I see in stones, metals and the natural world through my jewelry.

I have loved creating since I was a child. As a teenager and young adult I made beaded and wire-wrapped jewelry as well as other crafts. Then I had children and started my teaching career, both of which pulled my creative energy away from crafts and art.

A few years ago the itch to again create with my hands hit me. I started back with beading and wire-wrapping; then I took a class in metal-smithing and was hooked! I absolutely love working with stone and metal. Every stone I touch has ancient history, even spirituality. They have stories to tell, and it is so exciting to tease out those stories and put them into my designs. I have now retired from teaching, giving me more time and energy to put into creating.

I am still learning every day and loving every minute of it. My goal is to share that love with people who buy my pieces. Each piece is one-of-a-kind, although I am always open to custom making something similar to one I've already made.

I still enjoy beading and wire-wrapping and have opened a second shop - BarbaraKayJewelryToo - which features the jewelry I make with stone and glass beads. You can visit it here: www.etsy.com/shop/BarbaraKayJewelryToo

I hope you enjoy browsing through both of my shops and hope you will find something that speaks to you!

Welcome to my shop. Everything here is handmade by me. My inspirations come from nature, a little fantasy, and also a love of antiques and antique design. I love natural stones and metal, but also enjoy working with glass and beads. Variety is the spice of creativity, in my opinion, so you'll see a lot of variety in my shop. Enjoy browsing!

INTERNATIONAL SHOPPERS please note: VAT is not added to my prices at any point. All VAT, customs or other fees required in your country will be your responsibility. I apologize, but I do not have the means to take care of these things at this end. Additionally, if you have marked that your order is a gift, this does not mean you will not have to pay the duties.

All international orders are insured.

Additional policies and FAQs

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 fulfill your order, I must receive 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 fulfill 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; 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.
• 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: 5 years.

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.
