Where dreams take flight

I started making jewellery in 2011, which started out as a hobby, learning new skills and having fun creating handmade jewellery items. In 2012, I decided to turn my hobby in to a business.

My shop name was inspired by my love of fantasy books. A wyvern being a mythical creature and a close relative to a dragon, love sparkly beautiful jewels.

I love the beauty of gemstones, their unique patterns and colours, and turning them in to something fabulous to wear. I also enjoy combining colours to create interesting coloured patterns with macrame knots and beads.

Returns and exchanges
I sincerely hope that you are pleased with your purchase. However, in the event that you are not happy for any reason, please contact me and I will do my best to resolve the problem promptly.

>>> Right To Cancel <<<

I accept cancellations up till an order is dispatched, and a full refund including the shipping cost will be provided. Please be aware that I only mark items shipped once they have been passed to the postal service. Sometimes it might take me a few hours after an item is shipped, for me to have the opportunity to mark the order as dispatched.

If you wish to return an item, then please return them within 14 days of delivery in the condition they were sent out, and I will issue a refund including the original standard shipping cost upon receipt. Please note that the customer is responsible for any return shipping costs. Please also note that if you had chosen to upgrade your shipping from the standard shipping, then only the standard shipping cost will be refunded along with the item price once the return has been received.

Standard cancellation notice (delete or add information where applicable):

Seller: Victoria Tickner
Address: 16 Cook Place, Chelmer Village, Chelmsford, Essex, CM2 6TW, UK
Email: purplewyvern.jewels [!at] gmail.com

I/We hereby give notice that I/we cancel my/our contract of sale for the following goods.

Name or description of goods:
Ordered on (date):
Received on (date):
Transaction number (from Etsy receipt):
Customer's name:
Customer's address:
Customer's signature:

For international returns from outside the EU, please mark the package clearly with "RETURNED GOODS" and include on the customs form a complete and accurate description of the goods, and clearly mark as returned merchandise. If the package is marked correctly, then I will provide a refund including the original standard shipping price. However, if the package is not marked correctly I will have to deduct any import fees I have to pay from the amount you originally paid, and therefore will only provide a partial refund in that instance.

Due to the reproducible nature of digital products, I am NOT able to offer a refund on PDF patterns/tutorials once you have received your order. However, if you have an issue with your tutorial, please get in touch and I will do my best to resolve it.

>>> Faulty Goods <<<

Faulty Goods may be replaced, repaired, fully or partially refunded. Please contact me before making any faulty goods returns. I will agree a suitable course of action which may include the return of goods at my cost or alternative action that does not require the return of goods. I will not refund postage costs for unauthorised returns.

I exclude responsibility for any damage caused by wear and tear, excessive stretching, cutting, abrasion, incorrect care, heat, prolonged exposure to sunlight, exposure to water, chemicals, staining, unauthorised repair, heavy wear, rough handling or other inappropriate actions.

>>> Complaints/Dispute Resolution <<<

All sales are subject to UK law, with disputes subject to resolution in English courts. Dispute resolution is also available through Paypal, Etsy or card providers depending on the payment method used. For EU customers, you can also now use the EU Online Dispute Resolution https://webgate.ec.europa.eu/odr/main/index.cfm?event=main.home.show&lng=EN
You can pay via debit card, credit card or PayPal. I also accept Etsy Gift cards.

>>> Shipping Address <<<

If you pay via PayPal your order will be dispatched to the address you specified to PayPal. All other orders will be dispatched to the address you specified on Etsy. Due to seller protection rules, I will only ship to the address on the order so please ensure your address information is correct prior to purchasing. If a different address is requested after an order is placed, I will, unfortunately, have to cancel the order and you will need to reorder with the correct address.
>>> Dispatch Times <<<

For physical products, dispatch times are provided on each product's listing page and will vary depending upon whether an item is pre-made or custom made.

For digital products, items will be available to download once payment has cleared.

>>> UK Shipping <<<

Orders will be sent via First Class. Royal Mail estimates a delivery time to a UK address as 1 - 3 working days.

>>> International Shipping <<<

Orders will be sent via standard Airmail. Royal Mail estimates the following delivery times to the country destination (therefore extra time needs to be added for your local postal service to deliver your order):
> Western Europe within 3 working days.
> Eastern Europe within 5 working days.
> Everywhere else (including US/Canada) as 5 - 7 working days. Although it is typically taking 1 - 4 weeks for items to be delivered.

Please note that these are only estimates and delivery times can be longer. It depends upon your local postal delivery service and on customs clearance times as well.


Royal Mail state there are still ongoing issues with items entering Canada and "Canada Post has notified us that they are experiencing delays to delivery services due to high volumes of incoming mail".

So please be aware that shipping to Canada currently is more likely to take 3 - 6 weeks for items to arrive.


Agreed Time for Delivery of Goods (as per regulation 42 of The Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013) shall be:
> 4 weeks from order date for delivery to UK addresses
> 8 weeks from order date for delivery to addresses outside the UK

>>> Duties & Local Taxes <<<

**** IMPORTANT ****

Please be aware that as of 3rd June 2016, Etsy have added wording on to all listings to state "VAT/Taxes are included (where applicable)". I am not registered to collect taxes for ANY country, therefore VAT/Taxes that may be due when importing an item into your country (for non-UK customers) have NOT been included in the price. I do apologise for any confusion caused, however, please understand it was Etsy that added this wording, and I have no control over it.


Many countries apply customs fees and import taxes on packages over a certain value entering their country. Please be aware that customers have the sole responsibility for these fees and/or taxes that are applied at the point of entry into the destination country.

>>> Tracking <<<

Tracking is not included in the standard shipping prices. If you require this you can select the shipping upgrade when going through the checkout process.

>>> Lost Packages <<<

Items that the postal services lose (this is rare, but can occasionally happen) will be refunded in full including the original shipping cost. Items are not classified as lost until:
> UK - 2 weeks since the package was dispatched.
> Everywhere else - 6 weeks since the package was dispatched.

>>> Damaged Packages <<<

For items that arrive damaged (this is extremely rare), I will require you to photograph the damage and send those photos to me. Damaged items will either be replaced OR refunded in full.
Additional policies and FAQs
>>> Customers Rights & Contracts <<<

These policies do not affect the customer's legal rights.

A contract is not in place until payment has been made, and I am under a legal duty to supply goods that are in conformity with the contract. Purchase of goods is subject to availability. I reserve the right to decline an order.

>>> Marked As Gift <<<

If you select the option "This order includes a gift" during the checkout process, this means that a receipt without prices (i.e. a gift receipt) will be included in the purchase. Please note that for international orders that are sent outside the EU, a customs form will be attached to the package with the value of the order stated on it (this is required by law).

>>> FAQs <<<

>>> Gemstones <<<

Each semi-precious gemstone by their very nature is unique. The patterns, markings and colouring will differ between the same type of gemstone. Please note that minor imperfections may exist as they are natural stones.

>>> Jewellery Care <<<

To help reduce tarnishing of the sterling silver, it is recommended that the jewellery is contained in an airtight container, such as a resealable plastic bag when not in use. If the sterling silver does tarnish, a silver polish cloth can be used to remove the tarnish and restore the shine.

It is important that any macrame jewellery is NOT made wet, by wearing in the shower (for example). Whilst the colour should not run, this cannot be guaranteed. Plus, there is a risk of the jewellery item being damaged by getting wet and coming undone. The glue used on the macrame jewellery to glue the ends of the material is water resistant, but not waterproof.

As with any plated jewellery, the plating on the silver plated jewellery I sell will wear off with time and wear. I recommend that the silver plated jewellery should not be worn at night, not got wet e.g. not to be worn whilst swimming, showering or exercising. The jewellery should also not be cleaned with any chemicals as the chemicals can remove the plating. If you do need to clean silver plated jewellery, then it's best to do with a dry or slightly damp cloth and wipe gently, vigorous rubbing will wear the plating away.

>>> Packaging <<<

To keep shipping/postage costs to a minimum, jewellery items will be packaged in an organza gift bag and shipped inside a protective padded envelope, such as Mail Lite or Jiffy. Tissue paper and/or bubble wrap may be used, particularly if the item is small so that it doesn't move around inside the envelope.

>>> Reviews <<<

If there are any issues with your purchase, please contact me before leaving a review, as I aim to resolve any problems customers may have.

>>> Other <<<

All sales are subject to UK law.

Due to insurance reasons, I can not accept personal callers.

>>> General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) <<<

As of 25 May 2018, the new European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into effect. The GDPR changes how personal data can be used, and also allows individuals to be able to find out what information organisations have about them, and to have that data deleted in certain circumstances.

>>> How Do I Use Your Personal Data? <<<

Purple Wyvern Jewels uses personal data in four different ways:
> To see how users, in general, view my Etsy shop in order to make improvements to the variety of products I offer.
> To respond to enquiries.
> To fulfil any contractual agreement with a customer.
> To fulfil my legal requirements for reporting of income to the UK tax authority.
Purple Wyvern Jewels values your privacy and therefore I will never sell any customers personal information to anyone else.

>>> What Personal Data Do I Collect & Who Has Access To It? <<<

The personal data collected depends on how an individual interacts with Purple Wyvern Jewels. This may be by viewing my Etsy shop, contacting me directly, interacting via any of my social media or purchasing a product. The majority of personal data is passed electronically to Purple Wyvern Jewels by other companies and therefore these companies will have access to that data too. I have therefore split this information up by how I receive personal data:

>>> Directly <<<

Occasionally I will receive personal data directly from a customer. This is typically when a product return has been initiated and a customer has provided their name and other personal details when returning the item for a refund or for an exchange.

Any personal data that is in paper form will be shredded before it is discarded. As information in paper form is typically related to an order, due to legal requirements for UK income reporting, this information will be kept for a significant time period. Please see the "How To Do I Make A Personal Data Information Request & Request For That Information To Be Deleted?" section below for more information.

>>> Google Analytics <<<

I use Google Analytics to see how viewers browse my Etsy shop. I look at general trends of viewers rather than at an individual specific level. The type of personal data Google Analytics collects is:
> IP address
> Country location
> Type of viewing device
> Browser
Google Analytics doesn't currently have the ability for me to be able to delete an individual users data from the information collected. However, they do now allow data to be automatically deleted after a chosen time period. As I look at general viewer trends from this data, it's useful for me to have a decent timeframe to see how that usage changes. However I realise that people do not want that data to be held indefinitely, therefore I have enabled automatic deletion as follows:
> The data held within my Google Analytics account has been set to automatically delete after 26 months.
For more information on how Google uses data collected with Google Analytics please see Google's privacy policy ~ https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en-GB&gl=uk

>>> Social Media <<<

I use a variety of social media:
> Facebook
> Pinterest
> Twitter
> Instagram (inactive)
> Wordpress blog (inactive)

Social media websites typically require a user login and therefore should enable you to delete any online comments directly yourself. If you message me via one of these websites, the type of personal data that I might receive through a social media website are:
> Name
> Email address
I do not specifically delete any interactions through my social media websites, therefore if you wish for me to delete direct messages, then please contact me ~ purplewyvern.jewels [!at] gmail.com.

>>> Google Gmail <<<

I use Google Gmail as my email service and have enabled their 2-Step Verification to give added protection to any personal data I may receive into my email account. Please also see Google's privacy policy ~ https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en-GB&gl=uk

I receive automatic emails with regards messages sent through Etsy's messaging system. The type of personal data that I receive through these types of messages are:
> Name
> Email address

I also receive automatic emails when a customer places an order with me through Etsy, and also from PayPal if payment has been made via their service. The type of personal data that I receive through these sales confirmation emails are:
> Name
> Address
> Email address

Any direct emails, emails generated from Etsy's messaging system and sales confirmation emails will be kept until such time as deletion has been requested or when I automatically carry out my yearly personal data deletion process. Please note that due to legal requirements for UK income reporting, emails regarding orders will be kept for a significant time period. Please see the "How To Do I Make A Personal Data Information Request & Request For That Information To Be Deleted?" section below for more information.

>>> PayPal <<<

I use PayPal as a payment provider. The type of personal data that PayPal provides me with is:
> Name
> Address
> Email address
PayPal holds payment details on their secure servers and NEVER provide me with any card payment data.

PayPal does not allow me to delete any customer's personal information from their website. Therefore, you will need to contact PayPal directly to request this. Please also see PayPal's privacy policy ~ https://www.paypal.com/uk/webapps/mpp/ua/privacy-prev

>>> Etsy <<<

If you have contacted me through Etsy or place an order through Etsy, Etsy will have the same access to that information. I am NEVER provided with any card payment data through Etsy, and if you have used PayPal to make your purchase, please see the PayPal section above. Please see also the Google Gmail section above for the personal data that is sent by automatic emails Etsy generate.

>>> How To Do I Make A Personal Data Information Request & Request For That Information To Be Deleted? <<<

A request can be made at any time via email ~ purplewyvern.jewels [!at] gmail.com. Please be specific as to whether you are making a personal data information request, or whether you are making a personal data deletion request.
> Under GDPR rules, I have one month to reply in full to any request.
> Replies to requests for personal data information will detail what type of personal data information I hold about you.
> Replies to requests for personal data deletion will detail whether I had personal data information about you and confirm whether that data has been deleted. Please note that not all personal data deletion requests will be fulfilled. Any information pertaining to an open order will be kept until that order has been completed, plus order information will need to be kept for a time* for me to fulfil my legal requirements for reporting of income to the UK tax authority.

* Records of income for a UK business need to be kept for at least 5 years after the 31st January submission deadline of the relevant tax year. If no deletion request is made sooner, I will delete any paper records and email containing personal data information in May, for the appropriate reported tax year. (For example, if a purchase is made on 6th April 2018 at the beginning of the tax year, that information has a submission deadline of 31st January 2020. That data would then need to be kept until 31st January 2025.) This means that personal data could be held for approximately 7 years. By setting a yearly time period to delete data that is no longer legally needed, and including deletion of any other personal data that I received for the same time period, ensures that I do not hold personal data information indefinitely.

>>> How To Do I Make A Complaint? <<<

If you believe Purple Wyvern Jewels has misused your data in any way, please email me to let me know ~ purplewyvern.jewels [!at] gmail.com. If you are unsatisfied with my response, or unsatisfied with my response to a personal data deletion request, under GDPR you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority. The UK supervisory authority is the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO).
