About

Homegrown Jewelry Fresh from the Farm

j.Nic Designs came to be in 2006 when life for me was a lot different than it is now. I left my job as a General Manager for Gap Inc to be able to spend more time at my little farm & with my then husband. It was a drastic change as before I barely had a minute to sit down & now I suddenly had all this time on my hands.

I've always been an artistic person & technically began my jewelry making career back in high school in the late 80's (I guess I could say my true start was 4th grade when I weaved bracelets & necklaces from the lil' flowers in clover patches for my friends & teacher but since I didn't get paid we won't count that ;). I won awards for my work then & made jewelry for all the special events (proms, pagents, homecoming, etc) for the girls at school. My pieces were HUGE & loaded with rhinestones (it was the 80's & this is the south so put those 2 together & you can imagine how big they were). I pull some of them out now & get a good laugh. I majored in art my first go around in college until I decided to finish up my degree in Biology but that's another story entirely ;). So I took my newly found free time & started back my hand at crafting jewelry, although this time with an entirely different aesthetic. Since I no longer had an audience of hundreds of teenage girls to sell my work to I tried my hand at Ebay. I immediately received positive responses, sold just about every piece I listed & almost literally overnight j.Nic Designs was born. I then took my work here to Etsy when the site was barely a few months old & it just seemed we were a perfect fit for each other so I said goodbye to my shop & the auctions at Ebay. And I'd like to say the rest is history but that just isn't quite the case. The hubby & I decided to part ways in 2009 & that was a really tough time. I was sad, scared & worried about making it on my own. I debated long & hard about going back to work for Gap. No longer having health insurance or a steady paycheck to depend on was really scary. But I really loved what I was doing & it brought me happiness so to quote Tim Gunn I became determined to "make it work". I've set goals for myself along the way like being able to afford health insurance & saving up to buy a smaller more fuel efficient car so that I can give my 18 yr old truck, Betty, a bit of a break. If I could go back to the days of being able to afford to pay someone to cut my grass, buying the expensive coffee & having the brand new car I wouldn't do it. I'm much more satisfied & happier now cutting my own grass & drinking my cheap coffee. It's been a tough journey but well worth it.
(** Full disclosure - I do occasionally buy myself a treat of expensive coffee. Some things are hard to completely give up ;) )

So now it's just me & all the critters doing what we love to do. Life isn't perfect & I doubt I'll ever get rich doing this but it makes me happy & I think that's what's important. And I like to think my work brings other people happiness.. I like to think I'm sending out little smiles (or big ones) with each package that goes out my door. And I sincerely thank each & every person who has supported my work in any way. I truly couldn't have done it without you! Wishing you much happiness too! =)

Additional policies and FAQs
■ Colors may appear differently on different types of monitors so please keep this in mind when buying any item with natural stones online.

■ Wholesale inquiries are always welcome & you can find me on Etsy's Wholesale site as well.

■ What is GOLDFILL?
Gold filled is a solid layer of gold bonded to the surface of a different metal. In the USA it is called gold filled, in Europe & Asia it is called rolled gold because a sheet of real gold is rolled over.
The major difference between gold plated & gold filled is that gold plated is a very thin layer of gold electro-plated to the outer layer & the gold is 100 to 10,000 times less thick than gold filled. Gold filled is solid gold sheet over a base metal such as brass & it is much more durable & contains a larger amount of gold than gold plated which makes gold filled more valuable.

■ This is my full time job & I want you to leave my little piece of cyberspace happy so if you're not please let me know so I can make it right! I would appreciate the opportunity to correct any issues before feedback is left.
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 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 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 fullfill 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 toimprove 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.

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.

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, Jennifer Trott, am the data controller of your personal information. If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact me at Rainnitega [!at] aol.com.
