My Story

Hello and welcome to my shop. My name is Hazel and I make one of a kind handstitched jewelry storage boxes, decorative boxes, mulstistorage boxes and sewing boxes in my workroom at my home in the south west of France.
I began making simple boxes as gifts for friends and family before I ever imagined that my creations would turn into a full time business.
Following my husband’s retirement and our move from the UK to France, Hazel Gibbs Designs came into being.
…And then I found Etsy. A friend with a successful shop recommended the site to me in 2010 and since then I have been working hard constantly looking for new inspiration and ideas.
Each box is made entirely by me, from design to construction. Once I have a concept and can visualize a design, I make a pattern and precisely cut each piece from large sheets of mount board for an accurate fit. Then I construct the box by hand-stitching it together with durable cotton fabric, lining it in silk and
adorn it with a hand- beaded tab for opening.

By 2012, I realized that my vibrantly patterned, one of a kind jewelry and sewing boxes were quickly becoming cherished keepsakes! Grandmothers bought my heirloom quality sewing boxes for their grandchildren, and daughters began
requesting truly unique jewelry boxes as gifts for their Mothers. It was then, that I developed new styles, and experimented with more complex design. My craft is continually evolving, as well as my skills as a dedicated entrepreneur and Etsy seller.
I have learned that hard work is essential to success, as well as promoting and networking. I have formed a working relationship with an excellent fabric supplier, www.thesilkroute.co.uk, for the finest quality silk, who also lends a little inspiration from time to time. (With connections like this, I feel like the possibilities are endless!)
Whether you are shopping for yourself or for someone special, I invite you to browse my shop and contact me if you do not see exactly what you are looking for. …Besides, jewelry is only half a gift without an artfully crafted box for its safekeeping.

Refunds and Exchanges

I want you to be happy with your purchase. If however you are not, please contact me so that we can try to resolve the matter. I will refund you in full less postal charges providing you return item in the same condition as it was received within 5 days of receipt.

PLEASE NOTE that custom made items are not refundable.
Payment
I accept payment by Paypal, major credit cards and Etsy gift certificates.

For custom orders/made to order items, payment in full is requested at time of order.
Shipping
ALL ITEMS SHIP FROM FRANCE.

Due to changes by the French Postal Service, all orders will be shipped by Colissimo International mail which is tracked and insured.

Please be aware that mail entering the United States may be affected by postal delays due to increased security measures put in place by the US Government.

Delays which occur during shipping are outside my control. If you need an item by an exact date, please buy it well in advance, especially during the holiday season. If you plan to buy a custom made item please make sure you can allow 5 weeks plus delivery time. However, I always try to make custom orders well within that timeframe.

I have estimated the shipping charge as accurately as I can. If, when the item is posted, the charge for shipping has been over-estimated I will, of course, refund the overpayment.

Please note that I will always ship to the address given by Etsy. If you want me to ship to a different address, please indicate this in your Message to Seller. I am not responsible for packages that are undelivered because the address given by the buyer through Etsy is inaccurate.

I will combine shipping for multiple orders. You can either convo me so I can revise the shipping rates before you make your purchase, or you can go ahead and pay, and I will issue you a refund via Paypal. I have estimated the shipping cost as accurately as I can. If I am able to send the package cheaper than stated on Etsy, I will always refund the difference.

I always try to update 'item shipped' on your purchases ASAP.

Please be aware that any customs duties and taxes are the buyer's responsibility.

I am happy to send items direct to the recipient if they are gifts and a hand-written card can be included - just ask!

Business days are Monday to Friday. Also, the public holidays in France may not be the same as where you live so please bear this in mind when ordering.

PLEASE REMEMBER, I LIVE IN FRANCE so please allow time for your parcel to reach you. Thank you for your patience.

Holiday Shipping Notice - Please when shopping for that special Christmas gift that Hazel Gibbs Design is located in France and shipping to USA and further ends in the 1st week of December. Order early to be assured your order reaches you in plenty of time.

Packaging

All orders are shipped at cost price, I take nothing for packaging and fuel etc. I use recycled products for packaging when possible. This is another great way I'm able to keep shipping prices down while helping to protect our environment.

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.

Information I Collect

1. 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 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.


3. 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.

4. 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.

5. 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.

6.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, Hazel Gibbs, am the data controller of your personal information. If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact me at hazelandpetergibbs [!at] gmail.com. Alternately, you may mail me at:
