____________________________________________________________

From start to finish, each piece you find here has been designed, created, and photographed by me. This means that every pendant, bookmark, and art piece is made with care and precision. Each one is unique - I strive to make sure this is so. I also welcome custom orders as the meaning behind such a commission is beautiful - whether it is for you or to be given as a gift. I enjoy working closely with my customers, building a relationship, and making certain the final piece is one that will be treasured for years to come.

More about Silver Serpent Studio:
I run a small metalworking and silversmithing business from my studio, soon to be located in its own space on my property! I'm very excited about this expansion and how it will improve my ability to create unique pieces is a timely manner, now all year long in greater comfort and safety.

This wonderful adventure started as a hobby, an artistic outlet, continued on from my childhood. I've worked with pencil, charcoal, several paints, pastels, beads, and dabbled in photography. Then I found woodworking, and the joy of creating 3-dimensional pieces in high school. I worked with wood and created one-of-a-kind furniture for myself and family members for four years before heading off to college.

In college, I was saddened to find out that there was not a woodshop I could use on campus. There was, however, metalsmithing classes in the art department. So while studying to be a zoologist at Colorado State University, I also continued to study art and learn about a new medium - nonferrous metal. By the end of 5 years, I had two degrees and two passions.

While my intentions had originally been to work in the sciences, and then in natural resources as an ecological restorationist, I currently find myself an artist, a wife, and a mother. I enjoy working from home, and being there when my children come back from school. I enjoy creating, especially around natural themes such as mountain scenery and wildlife. And I enjoy my life as it is, and look forward to the next adventure as it comes.

    Art has always been one of my passions. I love working with my hands, so it's no surprise that I've embraced silversmithing & metalworking. I'm always trying new techniques and challenging myself - which means new designs are always in the works!

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:

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) 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
3) as necessary for the purpose of my legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as a) 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 b) 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) 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.
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

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: 1 year.

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:

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 my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests. 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, Hannah Trost, am the data controller of your personal information. If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact me at silverserpentstudio [!at] outlook.com. Alternately, you may mail me at:
