This penguin reminds me of the cute penguin from Wallace & Grommit. My friend is going to love it.

Cute, looks as described, seems to be good quality, arrived in good time. Note sizes of pendants (they're small).
So many animals, so little time!
Hello! Our names are Virginia Widen and Edward Strawiak. We are based in the wonderful city of Montréal, and have been creating together as Stick Man for over twenty years. We are mostly self-taught when it comes to silversmithing, although we both have backgrounds in fine arts. We started out by selling our jewellery on a street corner. On a whim, we introduced a line of stick drawings on oxidized copper, and suddenly we couldn't keep up with demand. Our designs have evolved since then, but animals are still our main inspiration. It's been many years since we abandoned that street corner, focusing more on craft shows and small shops and galleries. Then Etsy came along and gave us a whole new way to connect with customers all over the world. That has been amazing!
Our jewellery may look simple, but it can take weeks to whittle an idea down to the simple lines that will work in metal. Once a design is ready to make the transition from paper to metal, we fabricate a master using traditional silversmithing techniques. A mold is then made from the master, and the pieces are cast in silver using the lost wax process. There's a surprising amount of work involved in cleaning up and finishing the castings, and we do all of that in our workshop. Putting so much time and care into each piece, it feels like we're sending off a little bit of ourselves with each and every order.

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. 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 fulfil your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;

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:
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.
Business transfers. If I sell or merge my business, I may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.
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.
Transfers of Personal Information
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.

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.
