Not what I expected unfortunately.

Anita responded on May 21, 2016

They informed me that these earrings were smaller than they thought, going by the photos provided. I wanted to make sure I didn’t make a mistake in sizes. As the policies customers are asked to read before purchasing state, I said no, I can’t accept returns on earrings. BUT I asked her to please measure the hoops and if they were not the size in the description, then it is my fault, and I will happily send a NEW pair and they can keep the other ones. BUT they only responded with, they’d find someone to give them to and told me I needed to use better photos. It seems clear that they most likely DID NOT read the measurements and policies clearly provided. I often do that when I order, and am disappointed but it is my fault. Please all shoppers, to avoid disappointment, read details first!

About

It Is In The Blood

Hi. Thanks for stopping by! My husband Craig and I have lived in the great white north of Canada for our entire lives (with the exception of my brief stint in Ottawa/Montreal) as a baby and toddler! Winters can be long, but for me, a blessing, plenty of time for art making.
A common question asked of artists, including myself is... "Is your work for sale?" Prior to jewelry making, my two dimensional work had been in exhibitions at a couple of not for profit art galleries. As well as for profit galleries. But because of the physical issues I have, promoting my art work and seeking out venues for exhibition and sales, actively pursuing exhibition opportunities, was too big of a challenge. We decided to host private in home exhibitions featuring the art work by my husband, my Dad and me. Our paintings and in 2008, addd my new passion, my handmade jewelry.

I guess it would help to understand my "story" better, to explain what my physical issues are. Well, almost fifty years ago, I was born with a neuromuscular progressive, genetic disorder called Spinal Muscular Atrophy type 3. Which means that my physical abilities are always changing, which means finding ways to have enough energy to do what I love, being an artist. That also includes, adapting to those changes to enable the physical aspects of life in general to happen.

For most of my forty nine years, I have depended on the arms and legs of others to assist me, wherever I need it. Walking was possible until I was about thirteen or so. Using wheels for legs full time, was expected. Back then, decline in physical challenges were no big deal, because my arms still functioned well. As my disability progresses, I depend more and more on the "arms and legs" of others, beloved husband included. No biggie, just a part of life, the way God designed me! (Psalm 139)

Zoom ahead to the present...
My life is a wonderful gift and I love that creating is as normal as breathing. Makes sense, since we are created by God, our Creator! As time has passed, so have various abilities and I would be in denial if I said losing those abilities, especially the use of my arms, hasn't been a big deal. Well, it actually wasn't for years, not even losing the use of my legs bothered me. It wasn't until recent times, when my arms could no longer leave my side, literally. In fact, it may surprise some when I say, walking for me, was actually way overrated. I have a blog about althaea www.walkingwayoverrated.blogspot.com. As long as I had my hands and arms to do all I wanted, all would be well. The arm restrictions, were a little more of a big deal.

The Grace of God, supportive friends and family and an incredibly caring husband, makes life possible. However, the recent muscle weakness in my hands and boughts of physical fatigue, definitely impact my creative abilities. The desire within is surging, my mind races with ideas all the time. In fact, I was diagnosed with ADHD about ten years ago. It is comical to me, to think what would happen if I had full use of my muscles :o) No matter how much creativity is whizzing through my brain, it just won't make my body cooperate.
Needless to say, my productivity isn't what I wish it could be. That being said, my artistic life isn't over! Even if I live to see the day, when my hands lose total function, unable even to type like I am trying to now, creativity is in our DNA. All of us have it, we just express it in different ways. For now, I continue to express it as best I can, be it designing and creating jewelry, learning more and more about polymer clay and all that means, digital illustration, and now (2015) working with resin... stay tuned :o)

Needless to say, I think it is quite clear why starting my Etsy Shop, A Bergie Creation, was a perfect opportunity. I finally had a feasible, affordable, accessible way to sell my creations. Having this shop is all about being offered a way to do what I love and have a way to share that with the world. Quite literally, I have been blessed with knowing that over 1400 pieces of my jewelry are being enjoyed in countries all over the world! A really cool thing.

Thanks for taking the time to read this! Take care :o)

    After almost 50 years on this earth, being an artist is all I ever wanted to be. My favourite discipline always... painting and illustrating. In 2008, I discovered jewelry design. Newest passion, polymer clay. I now get to paint in three dimensions!

Shop policies

Welcome! This shop opened in 2008 and I am happy to offer my creations. A visual artist for over 30 years, creating is as natural as breathing. Here you will find my wearable art in a variety of media. I love colour and textures and anything visually appealing.

Accepted payment methods

Payment

♥ Communicating with me. Please send messages via the CONVO method only - Please do not send emails tend to get lost too easy!

ORDER CANCELLATIONS read carefully before ordering:
Please read all details and policies prior to making any purchasing decisions. If on the off chance you suddenly decide to cancel your order, because I try to get orders out as fast as possible, I usually can't cancel because it may have gone out already.

-However, If you do make a request to cancel, and it hasn't gone out in the mail yet, I can cancel. BUT...
- If successfully cancelled, I will refund the amount paid to ABC minus $1.00 in whatever currency used to pay, to cover handling charges that I am charged in order to chancel.

Shipping
Remember we are in CANADA, Canada Post has different shipping options, rates, and policies than other countries. And if leaving Canada, all items must go through customs. I have had to wait long periods of time for parcels I order, so I understand the waiting for something you are excited to get. But it is worth the wait.

Exception: (MINI COLLECTION and flat wire earrings are sent as letter mail to save on shipping, which means unless the customer requests a posting upgrade, there is NO Tracking number with Canada Post for letter mail - so they aren't a part of the bulk shipping rate, unless you purchase them with another item that has the bulk shipping rate. (! price for as many items as you want)

♦ THE SHIPPING ADDRESS WE USE TO SEND YOUR ITEM:
♦ All Items are shipped to the address on your ETSY invoice - NOT Paypal's address

♥ SHIPPING FEES (depending on the item, there are two kinds of shipping fees- read the shipping details for the item you are interested in):
YOU CAN UPGRADE TO A BETTER RATE TO INCREASE SPEED AND GET A TRACKING NMBER. The option is right where the shipping information is on the item.

ALL FLAT WIRE EARRINGS:
♥To Give customers the cheapest shipping possible...
Please note that all of ABC's Flat style, wire, i.e.: the MINI Collection earrings are all shipped via the cheapest way possible, in a letter style envelope through standard letter mail. I usually use an small white invitation size envelope.

That means, it comes via regular mail and will take longer than small parcel/packets but you do have the SHIPPING UPGRADE OPTIONS available for a higher cost, just check the item's information on shipping to see the cost and details.
As well NO tracking number at that rate.

♥SMALL PACKET SHIPPING (called Cheap Shipping)
Is the rate for every item except for ALL flat wire earrings like the MINI collection. ONE shipping fee for as many items as you want.

♦Date of Shipment:
♦ I will send you a notice through the Etsy system, to let you know when our item is shipped. Please note that I ship it within 24-48 hours from sending the notice. Unless otherwise specified.

If you miss the notice, just check your Etsy online invoice and you will see when it was shipped.
Refunds and Exchanges
However, Because I provide detailed photos and detailed written descriptions, I am are confident that you will be pleased with your purchase.

With the exception of breakage in transit, due to hygiene/safety issues I can NOT accept returns. But, if a customer is unsatisfied, depending on the reasons, I will do my best to settle the issue to the customer's satisfaction.

Because I ship to the address provided in the Etsy invoice. If that item is returned undeliverable due to the customer's address being undeliverable or rejected, no refund can be given because the error is not mine. Please make sure your ETSY account mailing address is correct.

RETURNS: Due to hygiene concerns, earrings can never be returned.
Items are packed securely and will never arrive damaged.
Additional policies and FAQs
ASK:
You can never ask too many questions, so don't hesitate to ask if unsure about ordering before you commit to a purchase.
