About

"The love of nature is a passion for those in whom it once lodges. It can never be quenched." - Mary Webb

Nature inspires me. It heals my soul and brings me peace. It allows me to pause a hectic and stressful life, and enjoy moments of stillness and clarity of thought. I'm awed by the beauty and complexity of the natural world, and the creatures that inhabit it. I'm an animal lover at heart, with a deeply rooted respect for wildlife.

If I had to pinpoint what triggered the creation of A Delicate World, I would trace it to a fox I befriended in January 2011 (later nicknamed Squinty). I live in rural Prince Edward Island, and one day saw a fox passing through a neighbouring field. Having a great love of animals, combined with an interest in photography, I decided to head out with my camera. This curious fox noticed me, and approached until there were mere feet separating us! I loved the experience so much that over the next several months, I upgraded my camera equipment and began creating jewelry from my photographs.

The greatest joy I experience with wildlife photography is when my subjects are comfortable enough to ignore me, thus rewarding me with a glimpse into their private lives. It feels as though I'm peering through my lens into another world, far removed from the noise and chaos of daily life. I love being able to share those experiences with others through my photography. Each photograph I take is a moment in time that is meaningful to me.

I've been a needle felting artist for many years, and my sculptures have been featured in several magazines, books, and prominent websites. Since my previous work (Kay's K9s) focused on domestic animals, I wanted my needle felting in this shop to focus on capturing the beauty of wildlife.

I hope my art will inspire you to make room in your life for nature. Our world truly is a delicate world, worthy of admiration and, above all, preservation.

Shipping
Standard shipping fees for most items:
--------------------------------------------------
Canada - $2.75
USA - $5.95
International - $8.50

Combined shipping is available for an additional $0.95 per item.

PACKAGING - All jewelry is packaged in a jewelry box and gift bag.

SHIPPING TIMES - US and International orders are shipped Light Packet via Canada Post, and Canadian orders are sent as Oversized Letterpost. Most orders arrive within 4-10 business days (1-2 weeks) or shortly thereafter. However, these delivery estimates are not guaranteed and on occasion delivery can take longer due to customs delays.

TIME SENSITIVE ORDERS - If your order is time sensitive, please purchase a shipping upgrade during checkout because standard shipping can be unpredictable. Xpresspost is the only service with guaranteed delivery dates, but Tracked Packet will at least include tracking and is more reliable than standard shipping times. Please order early and remember to leave enough time for me to make the order. Most items are made to order and ship within 1-3 business days.

TRACKING - To keep shipping fees low, tracking is NOT included in standard shipping. If you would like tracking on your order, please be sure to purchase a shipping upgrade during checkout.

LATE PARCELS - If you have not received your parcel within 2 weeks please do not panic. First, please double check that your address was entered correctly during checkout. If everything looks good then it is just a matter of waiting. Standard shipping can be unpredictable are some parcels are significantly later than others. Lost parcels are very rare, but late parcels do happen due to delays at the border. I do not worry about a parcel until more than a month has elapsed without delivery. Even when shipping within Canada, delivery times can be very slow for standard shipping. If you need your parcel by a certain date, please purchase a shipping upgrade during checkout for more predictable delivery dates.

LOST PARCELS - In the event that more than 5 weeks has passed and the parcel has still not arrived, a replacement will be promptly shipped. Normally, both packages will eventually arrive. If this occurs I ask that customers simply mark one of the packages "Return to Sender" and place it unopened in the mailbox to find its way back to me.

CUSTOMS FEES - Any customs fees/import taxes are the responsibility of the customer. Countries such as the United States are unlikely to be charged any taxes upon deliveries, but some other countries have lower tax thresholds. Please be aware of the laws in your own country before ordering online to avoid surprises.
Refunds and Exchanges
RETURNS:

If you are unhappy with your purchase, please contact me asap so that we can work something out. If I have made an error with your order, I am eager to fix it!

I accept returns within 4 weeks from date of purchase. Please contact me prior to shipping anything back. Return shipping fees are the responsibility of the customer, and no refunds will be given for the original shipping costs unless an error has been made on my part. All items must arrive in original (new and unworn) condition, including original jewelry box, in order to qualify for a refund or exchange. Refunds will only be issued to the person who placed the original order and will not be issued to a gift recipient.

** EARRINGS - Please note - earrings are non-refundable. I am unable to accept returns on earrings due to hygienic reasons.

SCULPTURES - Needle felted sculptures that are returned are subject to a 10% restocking fee. This fee applies to sculptures only, and does not apply to jewelry.



DAMAGED ITEMS:

If your jewelry arrives damaged, please contact me within 7 days of its arrival. I request that a photo of the damaged item and packaging be provided. This helps me understand what went wrong, and how to avoid a similar situation from occurring again. I will then ship a replacement within 3 business days. If I am unable to offer a replacement, a full refund will be issued.
