"It must be in the genes!"

...My standard answer when people ask me how I got started designing and creating my own line of jewelry.

My great grandfather, Allan H. Davis, one of the founding fathers of Red Lodge, Montana, probably started this jeweler-gene in our family. He was a pioneer and brought his family across country from New York by covered wagon. He was the town's jeweler, optician, and Post Master. Some of his tools have passed down to me, and from as far back as I can remember I have been drawn to unusual rocks and gemstones. I must've inherited his genes.

I began designing my own pieces in 1994, and set my first gemstone that Christmas. It was a 10pt diamond in a 14Kt gold floating heart setting; a friend commissioned it for his wife to celebrate their 10th wedding anniversary. That marked the first time I really thought of myself as a Jeweler.

My 'career' has followed many different whims - ahem, I mean "paths": setting gemstones, mounting pearls, bezel setting cabochons, stringing beads, bead weaving, macrame (hemp knotting), torch-work/soldering, wire-wrapping, hand forging (hammering) metal, and upcycling/recycling odds and ends pieces or vintage jewelry bits. I even tried my hand at casting - but, that was a long, long time ago. Through it all, what I have enjoyed the most is working with genuine gemstones (faceted, cabochon, or beads.) I have sources around the globe and enjoy browsing and buying stones that inspire me. (PSST - I think sometimes the gems tell me how they want to be set - but, that's just between you and me!)

My all-time favorite thing to do is prong-setting gemstones. It takes patience, control, and steady hands to notch the prongs just right - each stone and each setting is different. But the result is sooo worth it! I love all things sparkly ;-) I also enjoy learning about gemstones; I am hoping, one day, to get my GIA certification.

I have done countless juried and non-juried Art Shows, Fairs, Christmas Bazaars, Town Festivals, and Home Parties. My work has been shown in Museums and Galleries around my home state, Florida. Now I am very happy to share my little corner of Etsy with you!

On a more personal note - my other 'loves' (besides jewelry) are spending time with my family; homeschooling our super-talented "special" daughter, and caring for our six fur-children: four delightful kitty cats, and two boisterous dogs. My hobbies include: music, theatre, and music theatre! For pictures of me in my all-time favorite role as May Henning in "The Affections of May" visit Amelia Community Theatre's web site. I am a director; I've directed everything from musical ensembles to theatrical plays. I am also a percussionist, with the Marimba as my main instrument. And, together with my husband, we perform on Steel Drums (Pans) as "Steel Baroque." Check out our music here: www.SteelBaroque.com

Hello ~ Welcome to Catherine's Jewelry, my little corner of Etsy!
I am pleased to present my original, custom designed artisan jewelry, which I have personally handcrafted in my central Florida studio. All materials are genuine and hand-selected. I began designing jewelry in 1994. All of my designs are one-of-a-kind or limited editions; nothing is mass-produced. I endeavor to offer quality, beauty and value at a reasonable price; making it easy for you to add a Catherine's Jewelry creation to your own personal collection. Jewelry is always a great gift idea too! I stand behind my work ~ give, and receive, Catherine's Jewelry with confidence! Thank you for shopping Catherine's Jewelry.

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, 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 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 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:
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.
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.


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: 4 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 (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.


How to Contact Me

For purposes of EU data protection law, I, Catherine Templeton, am the data controller of your personal information.
