About Nataliaraya

Sales 3,351
On Etsy since 2008

Living and learning.

Hello and welcome!

My name is Natalia Araya and I am a Costa Rican maker currently living in Spain.

I run my own studio which is the "Atelier" here you can find one of a kind jewelry pieces made in a traditional manner using mostly recycled sterling silver which is worked in a way that allows the metal to react to the fire naturally, creating rich textures.

On my first jewelry class I was told that the only way to learn to make jewelry was to spend hundreds of hours on the bench working.

I dived in without really knowing at the time that it would become such a personal practice which truly changed my life, jewelry has given me freedom and it has taught me self determination.

I also carry a contemporary jewelry line which allows me to explore different topics, materials and motivates me to keep traveling, learning and to try to understand this fascinating relationship we have with objects.

Thank you for taking a peek inside my world, for any inquiries you can find me at nataliaraya [!at]

A little bit about me:

I like living a simple life, I don't need a lot to be content.

I was raised believing in fairy tales and ghosts, lots of laughter and innocence.

I think every goal can be achieved if you are constant and work hard enough.


I think we should be greatful and never take things for granted.

I don’t step on bugs…

I like giving compliments to strangers.

I got the sense of humor of my father and the eyes of my mother.

I love learning new things and to try to discover the "Why" of everything...

I love travelling and moving around you can follow my blog to see a bit of it in my personal instagram page:

I have longer hair than anyone I know..

I have no idea where I'll be in 5 years but I do know what I want to do the rest of my life.

I choose to have faith in many things and I believe in signs.

I am Natalia, I make jewelry to be worn an enjoyed and some to answer my own inner questions through making.

I feel blessed to do what I love and I really couldn't ask for more.

Returns and exchange details
I only allow returns if the piece arrives damaged. I will refund the total amount of the order once it is shipped back to me.

As for exchanges, please make sure of your sizing before purchasing, due to the nature of my pieces most of them are custom made and one of a kind, I don't keep a stock of them so basically just a size exchange means making the piece entirely again.

These custom or personalized orders are final and not returnable unless there has been some error on our part or the piece is faulty.

Each piece is designed and made by hand, and countless hours are spent making each custom creation, so we respectfully decline to issue a refund on custom orders.

Thank you for your understanding.
I accept eChecks, Direct payment and major credit cards through Paypal. To maintain fast shipping and turnover, I do not accept money orders at this time.

If you don't have a paypal account simply check out as a guest, no need to make an account! :)

PayPal is a secure server so you can feel safe shopping

Paypal takes:
- Credit cards
- E-checks (takes 4 days to clear)
- Paypal Balances

-Payment is required within 3 days, I will send you an email asking if you still want it just to confirm before canceling the order.
Please note this is an international transaction.

- I am currently living in Spain and shipping takes 15 business days to countries in America and Asia, and 5-8 business days to countries in Europe

-I ship all items 2 times a week, I will send you a confirmation email on the day I ship your jewelry.

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 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, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorized Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, 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 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.
- 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: 2 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:
1. My processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and
2. 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.
