Returns and exchange details
If you are not happy with your purchase when you receive your parcel, please contact me within 14 days of receipt. I operate under UK and EU Distance Selling Regulations.

In the event of any problems at all, I would ask you to please contact me before leaving negative feedback. My customers are important to me, and I will try to resolve any issues to our mutual satisfaction.

If you need to return any item for a refund, please let me know and return goods using a recorded postal service for your own protection and so that you know I have received your parcel - if I don't receive your parcel, I cannot offer a refund.

Refunds will be made via Etsy Payments when returned items are received by me.
I am signed up to accept Etsy Payments.

Please note that I do not receive any of your bank, credit or debit card details - all payments are handled by Etsy via their secure payment system.
Please note that due to the German Packaging Act I do not ship to Germany.


Parcels will be sent out as soon as possible when I have been notified by Etsy that payment has cleared.

Please note that I am based in the UK and currently ONLY ship within the UK.

Postal charges are subject to change in line with Royal Mail price increases.

I will inform you when I have posted a parcel. If there is any expected delay, I will contact you. I cannot cancel an order once it has been dispatched.

Please note that in general my stated shipping costs are accurate (determined by parcel value, weight and dimensions) and do include an element for packaging and handling as well as actual postage costs. I do not make any profit on postage and packing charges.

I sell only perfect items, and package all items securely and appropriately for shipping. I cannot be held responsible for damage to goods during transit.

Any questions, please convo me.
Additional policies and FAQs
Where possible, sizes are given in Imperial (inches) and Metric (cm or mm). Weights are usually given in grams (there are around 28.35 grams to the ounce) - I am based in the UK and not familiar with using "cups" as a unit of measure.

Whilst I try my best to describe pieces and show colours accurately in photographs, I'm sure you'll appreciate that different computer screens show colours differently. Please note that due to the handmade nature of some of the components (eg handmade lampwork beads, paper beads) they do vary slightly in size and pattern, but this does not detract from their appeal.

Please note: Hill Tribe Silver has a high silver content and (like any other silver) will tarnish if stored in the open. To reduce this, store your silver (and finished pieces) in an airtight bag (eg: gripseal). For additional protection you can buy "anti-tarnish tabs" to pop in with your silver. I cannot be responsible for changes in appearance due to tarnish.

Tarnished silver can be carefully cleaned with proprietary products - for example cleaning cloths or silver dip (the latter on "shiny" finishes only) - follow the instructions and precautions carefully. Please note that if you choose to use silver dip on "antiqued" finishes, this may remove or reduce the "deliberate" oxidation and change the appearance of the piece. I cannot be responsible for changes in appearance due to cleaning.
To fulfil your order, you provide me with certain information (which, by using Etsy, you authorise Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment method (which excludes all bank, credit and debit card details), and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information (for example if you require a custom order). If you choose to contact me directly via an Etsy convo, I simply receive your message and Etsy user name as part of the convo.

I rely on a number of legal bases to 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 you with customer support;
• 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;
• I use your information to provide the services you requested;
• as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.

I 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.
• In order to ship your order, I need to share your information with the postal service, to the extent necessary to perform these services.
• To comply with various laws in connection with my business, 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.

Please note that I do not use or store any of your personal information for marketing purposes; I do not operate a mailing list.

I retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with my services as described in my Privacy Policy. 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. After order processing, your data is held securely by Etsy, where I can access it as required (via a secure login) for the above purposes.

Etsy may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the US and other jurisdictions. As a result, they may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your own.

By using Etsy, you agree to their terms and conditions regarding the processing, handling and storage of the data you provide to them to fulfill your order(s).

I do not transfer or store your data.

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 as described below:
• You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the very limited personal information I hold about you by contacting me (using the contact information below); however this will simply be a copy of your order(s), as held securely by Etsy (see above).
• 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.
