About

Jewelry that Inspires the Wearer and Challenges the Admirer

Here's what I think:
Beauty is all around us, if you are willing to see it . And when you can recognize that, there is so much less to fear.

Who is my jewelry for?
I create distinctive jewelry for women who are curious about the natural world around them and for women who aren't satisfied with the limitations others use to define what beauty is. My jewelry empowers the wearer and challenges the admirer!

About the Jewelry:
Metal, Cloth & Wood jewelry is created using the most eco-friendly practices where ever and whenever possible. The precious metals used in the process are primarily green-certified and all of the silversmithing chemicals & tools employed are vegan and as environmentally friendly as is available -- I even go so far as to mixing up some of my own concoctions to ensure the treatments are as safe as they can be. And any metal scraps are carefully collected so that they, too, can be recycled into beautiful jewelry some day.

What Inspires Me:
The natural world offers up unparalleled beauty and endless surprises and variations that keep me constantly inspired and in awe. My willingness to challenge everything and always seek out my own truths enables me to create distinctive pieces that are as authentically unique as the women I design for.

My name is Johanna Wood and this is my Etsy shop. If you're reading this right now, you probably saw something you liked in my shop, so thank you!

A little bit about me: I'm obsessed with making stuff. AND I love that my designs bring happiness to others -- and that's really what it's all about, right?

I use the greenest, most eco-friendly components & processes I can find -- from the jewelry materials and tools to the packaging and shipping materials. A lot of my pieces even contain certified green & recycled sterling silver!

I also enjoy sending off a donation every year to support animal rescue & conservation. I donate $1 from every sale and I love that every year, my donation check gets a little bit bigger...

Ship items back within: 30 days of delivery
I don't accept cancellations
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
The following items can't be returned or exchanged
Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:
  • Custom or personalized orders
  • Perishable products (like food or flowers)
  • Digital downloads
  • Intimate items (for health/hygiene reasons)
  • Items on sale
When you receive the item, if you feel for any reason that the item is not right for you, I will accept anything back within two weeks for a full refund (minus the cost of shipping)

Please make sure to send the item back in the condition you received it in and please make sure to purchase tracking and insurance from your shipping service provider; I won't be able to issue a refund if the item is lost in shipping.

Once the item is safely returned I will refund you via PayPal immediately upon its receipt.
Payment
SHIPPING & HANDLING: As soon as payment is received via PayPal, if it's something I currently have in stock, I usually ship within 24 hours, Sunday thru Friday and within 48 hours if payment is received on a Saturday.

However, for made to order items, please allow at least two weeks for me to make your item for you. Depending on the work flow, I may be able to expedite your order, but it's always a good idea to ask first...

TAXES: Metal, Cloth & Wood is located in Jersey City, NJ. If you are ordering your item from within the state of NJ, there will be sales tax added to your order.

CANCELLATION POLICY: If for some reason you need to cancel the order, please notify me within 24hours of placing your order. In most cases, I should be able to cancel your order & provide you with a full refund. However, once an item has shipped, I won't be able to cancel your order & I won't be able to refund your payment until I receive the item back (see returns & exchange details). If the item has already been customized for you, I will not be able to refund any additional expenses incurred customizing the item for you.
Shipping
The prices for shipping listed here in my Etsy shop are for USPS 2-3 day Priority Mail (domestic,) *Registered First Class Mail (for UK and Canada only) and First Class International for all other countries.

If you need your order FASTER than that or you need me to expedite the order, please send me a convo before you place the order -- I will need to make you a custom listing that includes expedited shipping.

RE: *International shipping charges: The prices reflect the shipping directives, required by law, from the country the item is being shipped to. For instance, some countries require registered shipping for sterling silver & other fine metals/gemstones because of additional restrictions (i.e. Canada and the U.K.). Registered shipping is much more expensive than regular shipping but it is also a very safe way to go, so if you are making a purchase that is to be shipped internationally to a country other than Canada or the UK, I can send registered at your request, but you would need to notify me of this prior to placing the order so that I can make a custom listing for you to reflect the additional shipping fees.

Some countries may have other restrictions re: customs for fine metal jewelry. Most of my designs do contain some sterling silver or other fine metals. If you are ordering from outside of the USA or UK or Canada, please check your customs regulations before you purchase. I may need to supply you with a specialt customs form or other additional info, which I am happy to do, but I may not be aware of this when I ship to you. Should any customs issues arise after shipping, please notify me asap and I will do whatever I can to help you receive your order.

*Buyers are responsible for any duty or import taxes on items shipped internationally.
Additional policies and FAQs
CUSTOM ORDERS: If you have a custom jewelry request, please send me a convo! I usually say yes! ☺️ If there is a bug you'd like to see that I don't currently offer, let me know! If there is a design you like, but you want a different gemstone or size, let me know! If you are interested in my photo jewelry, but don't see exactly what you're looking for, let me know!

I am also now accepting fine jewelry orders. Depending on the type of item, I may ask for a non-refundable 20-50% up front to cover my expenses and the investment in materials before I am able to get started on your design. The balance will be due upon completion of the design and if for any reason you are unhappy with the result, I will gladly correct the item for you if possible or refund the balance to you when I receive it back.

WHOLESALE/CONSIGNMENT: Many of my designs are wholesale-able or consignable. I am very interested in expanding the number of shops I am currently being carried in, so please send me a convo for pricing/details.

PACKAGING: Please note that all jewelry comes beautifully packaged and ready to present as a gift in a Green Seal Certified 100% recycled fiber (80% post-consumer) jewelry box complete with a protective keepsake envelope.

I also provide a gift-wrapping service and can include a special note from you to the recipient, so be sure to look for those options when you place your order ☺️

GUARANTEES: When you receive the item, if you feel for any reason that the item is not right for you, I will accept anything back within two weeks for a full refund (minus the cost of shipping)

Please make sure to send the item back in the condition you received it in and please make sure to purchase tracking and insurance from your shipping service provider; I won't be able to issue a refund if the item is lost in shipping.

Once the item is safely returned I will refund you via PayPal immediately upon its receipt.
Privacy
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:

1) 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;
2) when you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time, such as by signing up for my mailing list;
3) 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
4) 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:

1) 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.
2) 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.
3) 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

Going forward, as of June 12, 2018, unless you have elected to sign up for my email list, I will no longer be holding onto any of your personal info. However, if you have made a purchase from my shop, the record of that purchase, along with your contact info, is still accessible to me, through the seller interface of Etsy. It is through that seller interface that I will be accessing your info, 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. But I will not be utilizing, copying or storing your info for any other reason, nor will I be sharing it with anyone else, for any other reason.

Transfers of Personal Information Outside the EU

I may store and process your information through third-party (i.e. Etsy) 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:

1) 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.
2) 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.
3) 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.
4)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, Johanna Wood, am the data controller of your personal information. If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact me at johanna [!at] metalclothandwood.com.
