Dolorous Jewelry: The nuts and bolts of it

Dolorous Jewelry is a line of accessories and wearable works of art. Born from a love of travel and sculpture the line features brass chain and repurposed vintage materials to create unconventional jewelry collections.

The line began after studying goldsmithing and jewelry design for two years at George Brown College and learning a variety of metal working techniques, I launched my inaugural collection of Dolorous Jewelry in 2010. In the following years it flourished and expanded and is now sold Internationally and has been featured in dozens of magazines, worn by celebrities, and even seen on television and the big screen.

I release my work in seasonal collections but I design constantly. Often taking influence from nature, art, and history, I'm almost never without my sketchbook. Inspiration can be found in the most unlikely places, and this is a philosophy I try to approach my designs with as well. I enjoy exploring unconventional ways to adorn one's self, as well as ways to get different looks from a single piece. Versatility is an integral aspect of my designs which is why I focus on neutral, earthy tones, to give even the most dramatic statement piece, an easy and wearable look that can be taken from day to night.

With my jewelry I strive to make items that are truly unique and extremely well made. My line is deeply inspired by historical, and specifically Medieval styles of accessories, such as various styles of Body Chains and Hand Jewelry. My materials are meticulously sourced and are always of high quality material, and many supplies are vintage and of limited stock making them very unique. Each piece is designed and handmade by me in my Toronto studio, and is shipped gift wrapped in a jewelry box or a hand-stamped muslin bag. Express shipping is available by request, as well as rush production whenever possible. Alterations and custom fitting are encouraged and available by request.

Dolorous Jewelry is an eco-minded brand taking many steps to reduce its environmental impact by reusing and recycling whenever possible. Many of the materials used are repurposed vintage materials such as charms, chains and the line's signature vintage chandelier crystals (I even use the original vintage findings whenever I can) which adds a unique vintage patina that only comes with age. The packaging is made from organic materials and primarily recycled wrapping tissue. I make each piece by hand and try to keep the process as green as possible at all times. As well as using vintage materials I also use recycled paper in my packaging.

Information I collect:
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 the aforementioned information and how it may be used:
- 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
- if 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.

I may share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:
- 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.
- I may occasionally engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies. I may share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
- 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.

My Etsy shop retains all past order information so any information related to purchases will be kept for as long as my Etsy shop is running.

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:
- You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting me at contact [!at]
- You may also have rights to change, restrict my use of, or delete your personal information. Outside of exceptional circumstances (like where I am required to store data for legal reasons) I will generally delete your personal information upon request.
- You can object to my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests. 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.
- 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.
