About

Sometimes life is a happy accident

It's funny how things work out, isn't it? Making jewellery was always a hobby for me, although I had sold a few things occasionally before I set up this shop in 2008. I was doing my PhD in law, and thought that selling my designs online would be a pleasant distraction. And it was, for a while.

When my mitochondrial disease progressed to the point I could no longer continue with school, I realized this little sideline activity could be my "real" job, if I wanted. The flexibility allows me to rest when I need to, but I am still able to earn a living while doing something I love. It's not exactly where I planned on ending up, but it's a pretty nice place to be!

My shop features many items that are "easy to wear" for people who have strength & dexterity troubles - my disability friendly line can be found here: http://etsy.me/16ph1Jg

Here is my other shop for helping Etsy sellers with relevancy & search engine optimization:

I won't bore you with photos of my workspace; instead I am giving you snapshots of some of my favourite places, where I draw inspiration for my natural designs.

Welcome to CindyLouWho2 on Etsy!

Accepted payment methods

Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
You have 15 days after you receive your purchase to contact me if you have any concerns. I will replace, repair or refund if your order arrives damaged/not as described (but you may need to return it at my expense).

I also accept returns, as long as you contact me first. Non-Canadian orders must be returned by regular mail (with a customs form), as I cannot accept out-of-country courier deliveries. The shipping costs in these cases are paid by the buyer. Earring returns are subject to an ear hook replacement fee, as the hooks cannot be resold.

Many of my natural items, such as shells and geodes, are somewhat fragile & cannot be dropped or mistreated without risking breakage, so please handle them with love & care.
Payment
Almost all items are flat rate shipping; you can buy as many as you want for the same postage.

Canadian orders will have Goods & Services Tax (GST) or HST (Harmonized Sales Tax) added automatically at the payment stage of checkout.
Shipping
I usually mail orders within 2 business days of payment, or sooner when possible, unless shop messages indicate shipping delays due to statutory holidays or other exceptions.

Shipping to countries other than Canada can take a lot of time - sometimes more than 2 weeks to the US and even longer abroad. Expedited shipping is available for an extra fee. Tracking is automatically included for some larger items shipped in Canada; Canadian, US & EU buyers can select a tracked option when checking out, and others should contact me for a quote.

You may need to pay customs, duties or taxes on your purchase in your jurisdiction.

Gift packaging is available on request.
Additional policies and FAQs
Wholesale & custom order inquiries are welcome!

Once paid for (including down payments), custom orders cannot be refunded.
Privacy
I obey all applicable privacy laws, and take your data protection very seriously. I will not release your private information to anyone except as necessary to complete your order (for example, using your address to mail your order). Please contact me if you have any questions about how your personal information is handled and stored by my business.
I do not have control over how Etsy uses your private information; please consult Etsy's Privacy Policy here: https://www.etsy.com/legal/privacy/ for more details.
