About

New directions...

When I was a little girl, I dreamed of living on a farm. Then, when I was a bit older, I dreamed of becoming a jeweller. So I signed up for my first course and it was true love. Though both dreams got shelved for some time, now, years later, they've both come true - how lucky is that???

After picking up jewelry where I left off, I started Le Chien Noir Jewelry in 2011 and haven't looked back. AND I now live on a pretty little farm in Quebec, near the U.S. border. My jewelry all happens in my basement studio, where I can spread out and the hammering doesn't bother the chickens.

On a constant quest to streamline and simplify life, my design aesthetic also tends towards the minimalist, which I feel best showcases the gorgeous gemstones I use. The days are never long enough and every project is an inspiring experience. Working with precious metals and gemstones is a tactile process like none other. And the abundance of wonderful stones available is endlessly inspiring, as is the nature that surrounds me. One of the things I love most though is the possibility and pleasure of connecting with Etsians and customers from around the globe. All very exciting!

    I returned to making jewelry several years ago and started Le Chien Noir Jewelry in 2011. It's been a complete treat to work with silver, luscious gemstones and some gold, learning every day and seeking to continually improve my skills.

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.

1. Information I Collect:

To fulfil your order, I need certain information about you (which you authorized Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information and the details of the product 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.

2. 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 about a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and
• as necessary for my legitimate interests, if these 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:

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.
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. How long I keep your information

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.

5. Your Rights

If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have several rights relating to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in 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. Barring exceptional circumstances (e.g. 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 live 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.

6. How to Contact Me

For purposes of EU data protection law, I, Carla Straessle, am the data controller of your personal information. If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact me at carlastraessle [!at] gmail.com. Alternately, you may write me at:
