GardenofDevotion

A quiet place to browse beautiful handmade prayer beads

Barnsley, United Kingdom

Top shop for gifts.

Buyers bought gifts from this shop and gave them 5-star reviews!

Announcement    I am now accepting overseas orders again. Please be aware that there can be sudden substantial delays for delivery in all areas of the world at present, please do not order if you are not prepared to wait several weeks, I do not want you to be disappointed when there is an unforeseen situation. Orders outside the UK are sent tracked and you will be given your unique tracking number for peace of mind.

Garden of Devotion is my 'sister' Etsy shop, set up in response to feedback from my customers who prefer a dedicated place to view all the Rosaries and Prayer Beads I make, rather than mix it with my jewellery designs over at Aurora Gem Boutique.

I make and sell my items to help pay for basics and bills since unexpectedly becoming a full-time carer for my husband in 2012 and suddenly in the position of being unable to go out of the house to work for someone else.

Thanks for visiting, I hope you enjoy your stay.

Welcome to Garden of Devotion, a dedicated Etsy shop for my handmade Rosaries, Prayer Beads and Religious Jewellery. This is the sister shop to my established jewellery shop Aurora Gem Boutique. Based in the UK - shipping worldwide.

Keep up to date with offers, news and new items by 'liking' my Facebook page www.facebook.com/AuroraGemBoutique, for more information visit my website www.auroragemboutique.com.

My rosaries and prayer beads are either one of a kind pieces or limited runs and cannot be altered. Jewellery items such as earrings can usually be altered to offer different metals and fittings so please ask if you need something specific such as carat gold earwires.

I am unable to take on any commission orders as I am a carer for my husband and cannot always commit to taking on extra work, my pieces are made in my 'down time'.

Returns and exchange details
Please ask any questions and make the appropriate measurements to make sure the item is the one for you before purchasing. If you have any reason for wanting to return the item please contact me and we can work something mutually suitable out. If you decide that you simply no longer want the item you will be liable for return postage. Returned items need to be in an unused and original condition and in the gift box or gift bag provided. I will issue your refund upon receiving the item safely back.

Under the Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000, customers in the EU who make purchases online are entitled to a 14 day cooling-off period from the date of delivery. With the exception of bespoke custom orders, which cannot be returned and are exempt from these regulations, I am happy to offer a full refund of any purchases under the following terms:

~ The customer makes contact within 14 days of receipt of the unwanted items
~ Items are unworn and are returned in the same condition as when they were
purchased
~ Buyer pays for return postage and packaging costs.

In return you will received a full refund once I have received the item or proof that the item has been posted back to me, plus your original postage costs. You only pay to return the item to me if you have changed your mind or find the item isn't suitable for your needs.

For other returns, please contact me to discuss. Your legal rights remain unchanged.

If you are returning goods from outside the EU you must mark your parcel clearly as "Returned Goods" otherwise the item will be liable for import tax which I am unable to pay.

Customers outside the EU are not legally included in the above regulations but I will extend the same privileges to my customers worldwide.

Here is the cancellation form provided by Etsy - if you do wish to cancel, download this form and open it in your preferred program to overwrite it. http://extfiles.etsy.com/cancellation-forms/EUCancellationFormEN.pdf
Payment
I accept Paypal, but you can now also pay using Credit and Debit cards using direct checkout as an alternative, this uses Etsy's secure checkout system and I do not see anyof your credit card details.
Shipping
Overseas orders are now sent fully tracked.

UK orders are sent by First Class Signed For delivery (this used to be called Recorded Delivery) unless otherwise stated.

I post items Monday to Friday. If you are in a rush to receive your purchase then please let me know, I know how stressful it can be waiting for a last-minute gift to be sent!

All my rosaries, prayer beads and jewellery items are sent in a quality gift pouch, the designs vary so if you have a particular preference, want to avoid a certain colour or maybe a floral design isn't appropriate then please do get in touch. I can usually offer several different types of pouches and will do my best to select one to suit your needs.

If you are in a non EU country your item may be liable for import tax so please check your country's import policies before buying as there may be additional fees that you would have to pay.
Privacy
This Privacy Policy describes how and when I collect, use, and share information when you purchase an item from me, contact me, or otherwise use my services through Etsy.com or its related sites and services.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that I do not own or control, including Etsy or any third party services you access through Etsy. You can reference the Etsy Privacy Policy to learn more about its privacy practices.

Information I Collect

To fulfil your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorised 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 minor alteration 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 fulfil 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.

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.
