This pendant is stunning. Gorgeous colours. Looks even more amazing in real life. I love the unique shape and the metallic paper that the photo is printed on give it a beautiful effect.

Such a pretty pendant. I bought this for my mother and she adores it. The metallic paper that the photo is printed on gives it a beautiful effect that you can only see in real life. Highly recommended.

About

About 60% of Western Australia's native plants are found nowhere else in the world...

With that in mind, I decided it was only fair to share their amazing beauty, colours, textures and shapes with those that may not get to experience them in person, as well as with my fellow Aussies.

I have been a photographer for 19 years, beginning at the age of 16. Between 1997 and 2007, I had concentrated primarily on portraiture, even studying it professionally at college. In 2007 was going through a bad period of creativity block and wasn't sure if I wanted to be a serious photographer any more. Discouraged, I took my camera with me whilst out bushwalking. Whilst exploring, I fell in love with Banksias. They are such detailed and intricate plants, with so many varieties that there is one in flower throughout the entire year. Over time I developed a real affinity with native plants, photographing them in a fine art style rather than as traditional nature shots.

I returned to college (TAFE) in 2010 to continue my photography studies, deciding to concentrate my major folio and video presentations on our native plants. I completed my diploma without assistance, despite suffering from chronic fatigue syndrome. It's something I'm very proud of! Whilst studying, I started my Blackcurrant Photography blog, and registered my business. Since 2010 I have sold my photographic prints and decor via Etsy.

My most popular items have been my 3D photo jewellery, inspired by face mounted acrylic blocks. I have been developing these wearable miniature artworks since early 2011. Each one contains my own photographs which are professionally lab printed. I then seal each image behind glass, then hand finish them with sandpaper and quality findings. Each jewellery piece takes a minimum of 2-3hrs to create.

In the past 2-3 years I have focused my brand more on homewares and accessories through a print to order service. Etsy has become my home for selling my handmade items, and my fine art prints. All fine art prints sold via my Etsy shop have been individually crafted, professionally printed by my favourite lab here in Perth, and ship from my own home, to your door.

Thank you for reading my story.

Shipping
My shipping prices include the costs incurred to safely package your items and send them according to weight and size restrictions. I usually gift wrap jewellery items in my signature purple paper. If you don't want gift wrapping please tell me. It will not adjust the price of your purchase if you do or don't have it.

Please contact me first if you wish to purchase multiple items of different sizes and weights so that I can accurately calculate a combined delivery cost for you.

Photo prints need to be sent flat so if you also wish to purchase jewellery or other 3 dimensional items you will need to purchase them separately and I will need to package them separately.

..........................................................................................................................................

All items are sent by Australia Post, our national carrier. Please note that any customs fees, import charges and taxes are the responsibility of the purchaser/buyer. All customs forms are marked merchandise and have a clear description of the contents. Unless I have run out of printer ink, your parcel will contain an invoice with full Etsy and Paypal transaction details.

...........................................................................................................................................

In Australia, all items are by standard Australia Post ex Perth.
Express post to states other than WA is not guaranteed, as Perth is not within the Express network.

Most of my products ship at standard letter rates with delivery expected within 5-7 business days from posting. As a general rule, domestic letters can't be tracked.

If you'd like Extra cover and signature on delivery, please send me a convo and I will adjust the shipping prices. Signature and extra cover is mandatory for some made to order items like large matted prints and iceblocks.

If you purchase a few items, say 4 or more pendants, a selection of accessories, or heavier 3D items, it will possibly be sent as a parcel. All domestic parcels lodged through an Australia Post retail outlet will be traceable through an online tracking tool.

If you have your own preferred courier service, you are welcome to contact me to arrange pickup by a brand name courier (wearing uniform and carrying ID). I do not permit customers to collect/pickup from my home. If you wish to see items in person prior to purchase, please request a Skype appointment.

Refunds and Exchanges
I offer professional and courteous communication to help resolve any issues you may have. After all, I want you to have a good Etsy experience and I would like you to return to my shop.

All items sold via my Etsy store are of a handmade nature and may vary slightly from order to order. Your piece of jewellery may show bubbles, tool marks or glue residue on the back. Each 'in stock' item listed has its own photograph so you will always receive the exact item shown in the listing.

Every care is taken with your item and I do my best to show you photographs and write descriptions that accurately display quality and any flaws of your handmade item.

Under the Australian Consumer Law, I do not offer a refund if you (or someone you have bought an item for):

* changed your/their mind
* ordered the wrong product
* found the product cheaper elsewhere
* were aware of the relevant fault before buying the product, such as if the fault was written on the tag, or indicated in the photos or item description online
*damaged the product by misusing it – for example, you showered whilst wearing the jewellery when you were told not to.
*used the product for a very long time and the problem is as a result of usual wear and tear.

To clarify, no refunds will be given for purely changing your mind, 'not getting what you thought you were getting', or for choosing an item that doesn't suit your needs/décor/frame/outfit etc.

All of my items will be sent with sufficient labelling and packaging to protect them against damage and rain, (this is included in the shipping cost). Once items are submitted for shipping, they are in the hands of a third party (sometimes a forth or fifth party!).

If damage has occurred to your item in transit, please contact me urgently via the methods listed below and include photographs of the item, so that we may discuss your options (such as replacement, repair, or exchange) and I can take precautions to prevent damage happening to similar items in future.

If you seek a refund rather than replacement, you must first contact me to advise me of your wish to do this. You must return the damaged item/s to me at your own expense, within a reasonable timeframe. Refunds less the cost of shipping and packaging components may be payable after assessment of items.

Under the Australian Consumer Law (ACL), the customer is only entitled to choose a refund or replacement for a major problem with a product covered by consumer guarantees.

Where possible, I post jewellery care instructions with your order. You may email me for a copy if required.

Jewellery pieces have been created using superglue - most often UHU, Loctite or 3M Scotchweld Instant Adhesive CA-40 to secure bails etc. Your piece will be bubble or foam wrapped for postage.

In the event that dropping your item causes parts to separate, you may be able to re-secure them using a similar glue. Please take care with jewellery items and don't allow them to get wet or sweaty. If you take care, and treat your pieces as costume jewellery, you shouldn't have any problems.

Jewellery items contain small parts and as such, aren't suitable for children.

You may contact me by emailing info [!at] blackcurrantphotography.com.au, Etsy convo or by phoning +61 422 871240
Please do not text or leave me messages on social media for order enquiries as they may not be actioned promptly.

These refund terms have been written with the help of information on the Government of Western Australia's Department of Commerce website at 15/7/2014.
Additional policies and FAQs
I can hold or reserve item/s for you for a period of 7 days. After 7 days, your item/s will be relisted and available to everyone. Reserved items can be found in the reserved section.

Custom orders are available for prints, presentation items and cards. I don't usually take custom orders for jewellery as I don't keep supplies in stock. If you would like a custom piece of jewellery, please be aware it may cost significantly more than my in stock pieces.

We have a cat and eat peanuts. I severely doubt that either would ever come into contact with your purchase, but you may like to know.

Jewellery items contain small parts and as such aren't suitable for children. Bails are either a hypoallergenic base metal (and listed as such) or are copper or brass with silver or gold plating. Most items are nickel free, but I can only guarantee this for hypoallergenic bails which are Aanraku or Spider brand from the USA.

I use high quality glass which I individually inspect for scratches and flaws. Where applicable, I do my best to disclose any flaws in my listings.

I spend an average of 2hrs (plus drying time) hand assembling each piece of glass jewellery. Instead of the common glazes used to create glass tile pieces, I use a strong adhesive to secure all parts. All paper edges are hand sanded using 3-4 grades of sandpaper before they are sealed with adhesive to help prevent fraying. Once everything is dry, I polish each piece with high quality auto glass cleaner.

The jewellery is moisture resistant due to the glass but is NOT waterproof. It's important to remove it before showering, swimming or heavy exercise.

This jewellery is made by hand and no two pieces will be completely identical. Due to the handmade nature, please be aware that items are not flawless, yet I have made every effort to carefully photograph all parts for you. On some pieces I have written my name on the back with permanent marker. This does not show through when worn but may be visible when held in the light.

HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR JEWELLERY.

Each piece of jewellery is made by glueing a photograph to glass, sanding the edges, adding a bail (or hooks) and sealing all the edges with glue. It's designed to be worn, but it is fragile and you need to be aware of a few guidelines.

The back of the jewellery has been signed with a Sharpie permanent marker. Over time it may wear off due to the oils on your skin. For this reason I don't suggest wearing with light coloured tops.

Don't wear the jewellery if it's really hot or if you're going to be exercising as body oils can build up on the back. The back of the pendant is basically just laminated paper. It's moisture resistant but not moisture proof. Try to wear it with clothing it can sit on top of instead of on your bare skin.

Always remove your jewellery before swimming, showering (or washing hands if it's a ring/bracelet).

If dropping your item causes parts to separate, you may be able to resecure them with adhesive such as UHU superglue. Please do take care as many items are made from glass and will break if dropped onto a hard surface.
