About Illustrationist

Sales 1,040
On Etsy since 2013

Illustrationist is the work of Katja, I design and create silver or gold jewellery. I'm also an illustrator so you can buy cards and posters too :)

Welcome to my Etsy shop. All things here are made by me and by my hands. My name is Katja and I'm from Haarlem, in the Netherlands.

In The Hague I studied Graphic Design and Ghent is where I‘ve studied illustration. That is why there are two Etsy shops, on the one hand there's illustration, on the other there's the smithing of jewellery. is where you can find the illustrations.

I'm always on the look out for new techniques and materials and I enjoy combining items found in nature in my work. My love of learning new crafts is what brought me to Arnold van Dodewaard, he thought me about smithing, something I enjoy doing very much!

Also with my illustrations I'm always searching for new options. There are cards and posters, but also stickers, bags and now even pins!

Do not hesitate to contact me with any questions!

Returns and exchange details
I hope you'll be happy with you purchase! Due to the hygienic aspect of my pieces I can't except returns or exchanges. However do contact me if you have a problem and I will do my best to solve it with you!
Refunds or exchanges on regular pieces or items are only accepted by special arrangement. I do not pay/refund any shipment costs, unless of course it is a fault from my side. If we do agree upon a return a restocking fee applies, between €6,- to €10,50.

- Custom orders are non-returnable.
Etsy has a lot of payment options at check out. However, if you're not able to use these payment methods, it's also possible (within Europe) to make a direct transfer to my bank account - choose the option 'other' and send me a message if this is a method you'd like to use.

If any custom fee occurs when receiving the package it will be responsibility of the customer. Please inform yourself on your countries laws regarding import duties before ordering something online.

I start working on orders only after the payment has been cleared.
All shipping rates are stated with the products. I make sure your item(s) is (/are) very well and securely packaged. You can contact me about getting your shipment insured for an additional fee.
I try to be plastic free, packaging is all (recycled/FSC) paper/cardboard. I only use recycled bubble plastic if needed.

National and international shipping times vary by location.
- Within the BeNeLux it usually takes no more than 1-5 business days to ship a package.
- Within Europe packages usually arrive within one (or max. two) week(s).
- Outside Europe it might take longer (1 up to 8 weeks), using standard shipping. Please keep this in mind when ordering. So far though, packages outside Europe tend to be delivered within 10 to 14 days.

I am not responsible for any fees or import charges that might occur in your country.
Additional policies and FAQs
- If an item needs repair at any time, you can contact me for a cost estimate.

- The items I make are delicate - yet sturdy. I do recommend however not to wear your items under the shower/whilst swimming/sleeping in bed etc. if you want to keep your pieces in their best condition.

- Oxidation on items is a delicate procedure, whilst wearing your pieces oxidation will fade due to naturally polishing your items because of you wearing it. Please keep this in mind.

1. Information I Collect
To fulfil your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorised 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 jewellery, for example), if you contact me directly.

2. 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 possible mailing lists;
- 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

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.

- 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.
- 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.

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.

6. 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.

- 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.
