About

Hand Stamped, Handmade Jewelry and Gifts with Heirloom Potential

So honored to have been featured by Etsy in the "Quit Your Day Job" series. I've learned so much from the amazing artisans featured in the past. It is my pleasure and such an incredible honor to be able to return the favor.

The jewelry creations of River Valley Designs reflect a minimalist aesthetic but just as strongly they speak to the heart. Whether it’s a Mom necklace for her or a monogrammed tie tack for him, clean lines and classic forms with a lighthearted touch define owner-designer Danielle Watt’s bespoke line. But look closely and see painstakingly applied, hand-stamped sentiments that express something singular about the wearer. Watt meticulously handcrafts her designs from sterling silver using a range of metalworking techniques. Her joy is capturing the wearer’s unique story with her hand-stamping tools to create a piece of heirloom quality jewelry that will be worn today and treasured tomorrow.

In addition to catering to private customers, River Valley Designs jewelry is a popular choice for inclusion in celebrity swag bags and has been gifted to, among others, Amanda Seyfried, Mila Kunis and singer Jordin Sparks, who was photographed in September 2012 wearing a River Valley Designs bracelet as she received her Power of Youth Award. Also in 2012, the company’s custom-designed sterling silver guitar pick pendants, which sport the adage, “Where Words Fail, Music Speaks,” were part of the official gift bag/lounge for the 46th annual CMA Awards.

Each River Valley Designs piece is custom made to client specifications. Customers can learn about the company, check out available designs and place orders at www.rivervalleyjewelry.etsy.com.

Danielle Watt is a resident of Shadyside, Ohio and has been creating jewelry since 2009. When not busy at the jeweler’s bench, Danielle enjoys spending time with her son. As a Registered Veterinary Technician she also donates time to Animal Balance, a non-profit organization that conducts large volume spay and neuter clinics in remote areas of the world.

No refunds or exchanges on custom orders.

Refund or exchange will be granted once the original item is returned to me, packaged similarly to how you received it.

If you have any issues with any piece but the issue isn't addressed here, please always feel free to convo me so we can work together to fix the issue. Overall, I want my customers to feel comfortable purchasing from me and I want them to be happy with their purchase! :)
Payment
I accept payment via Paypal. If you don't have a Paypal account, don't be afraid to open one! Paypal does not share your payment information with me or any other party you purchase from using Paypal. Paypal offers many different ways to pay and a very safe, dependable method of payment when shopping online. You can also checkout via Paypal as a "guest", without opening an account.

Need help with the checkout process? See this helpful how-to from Etsy:
https://www.etsy.com/help/article/339

All purchases are final. Once your order is submitted, it cannot be canceled or changed, unless deemed appropriate by shop owner.

The payment method "other" is strictly reserved for local purchases. If you choose this payment option and proceed to check out, your order will not be started on, reserved, or shipped until payment is received in full. If payment is not received within 24 hours of the time of purchase, the purchase will be canceled.

Custom items will not be started on until payment is made in full. Items will not be reserved or shipped until payment is made in full.
Shipping
Most items in my shop are made-to-order and lead times vary depending on current order volume.

Custom items will be shipped upon completion. Please convo me for current turnaround time, or see my shop description directly under the shop's banner on the main shop page.

***PLEASE NOTE***
If your package is returned to me due to an error in address on your part or if the package is refused at the address you provided (this happens a LOT with work addresses, so please be sure the package can be accepted at your workplace) and returned to me, I'm happy to ship the item out to an alternate address, AFTER you have paid the shipping fee again. I'll contact you with a Paypal invoice for shipping and will get the package right out to you once the invoice is paid.

PLEASE be sure that the address you'd like the package shipped to is indicated in both Paypal and in the "shipped to" section at checkout. Please do not leave an alternate address in the "note to seller" portion as I use an automated program to print shipping labels. I am not responsible for missent packages if the correct shipping address is not indicated in those two places.

Unless otherwise requested, all domestic orders will be shipped USPS First Class with Delivery Confirmation from Ohio, which takes 3-5 days for arrival within the United States. Priority mail is a great shipping option (2-3 days) and I can quickly upgrade the shipping price for a listing. Please contact me before purchase so I can upgrade the shipping option for you.

I happily ship internationally! I love my international customers! The International shipping included in the listings is for first class. THE USPS DOES NOT QUOTE A DELIVERY ESTIMATE FOR FIRST CLASS INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING. It can take anywhere from 2-6 weeks to most locations worldwide. If you need a faster shipping option, please convo me for options. I am not responsible for any additional customs or duties fees that may be incurred upon the packages entry to your country. I fill out customs forms properly and accurately, I will not falsify a customs form.

I take great care in shipping every item. To keep items clean, dry, and safe, they will be bagged, placed inside a cotton-lined gift box, then wrapped with bubble wrap. If the item is a gift, just remember that the item is in a small ziploc baggie within the box. You may want to take the item out of the bag before giving.

I try to stay as "green" as possible when packaging items. I will never use unclean packing materials, I only re-use "like new" packing. However, your gift packaging is all brand new as is the envelope your item will arrive in. If you prefer brand new bubble wrap or packing, simply let me know at check out.
Additional policies and FAQs

Hand stamped jewelry: Items are made upon order and in the order received. Please contact me for exact lead time as this changes due to order volume.
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 fulfill 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 fulfill 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.

For purposes of EU data protection law, I, Danielle Watt, am the data controller of your personal information. If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact me at daniellevmt [!at] comcast.net. Alternately, you may mail me at:
