Announcement   Because of Annie offers unique, lovingly handcrafted custom photo and charm jewellery, gifts and accessories. My designs feature a mixture of pre-made charms, crystals and glass beads teamed with my own handmade charms and pendants, made by embedding artwork and text/quotes in resin. Many of these art designs are my own creations and are not available anywhere else. All of my pieces are lovingly handmade in my home studio in the flat, windy Lincolnshire Fens, with Annie snoring nearby!

I can also create jewellery and gifts using your own photos or text to create something unique for that special someone or special occasion.

Most of my designs can be made into any piece of jewellery or accessory - so if you see a design used in a necklace but you’d prefer earrings or a keyring, just get in touch and if I can make it happen for you, I will!

I don't charge any extra postage on purchases of more than one item so go ahead and treat yourself - order two or three items, the postage cost is the same!

The crystals are beautiful! I wear them on earrings and people always comment on them. Shared them with my sister and she hasn't taken them off yet! Thanks for a beautiful product at a great price.

About

I'm not Annie...

I created Because of Annie in 2011 to allow me to work from home so that I could be with my rescue dog, Annie, who has epilepsy and is also deaf.

Because of Annie offers unique, lovingly handcrafted custom photo and picture charm jewellery, gifts and accessories. My designs feature a mixture of pre-made charms teamed with my own handmade charms and pendants, made by wire wrapping crystals and glass beads and by embedding artwork and text/quotes in resin. Many of these art designs are my own creations and are not available anywhere else.

All of my pieces are lovingly handmade in my home studio in the flat, windy Lincolnshire Fens, with Annie snoring nearby!

I can also create jewellery and gifts using your own photos or text to create something unique for that special someone or special occasion.

Most of my graphic designs can be made into any piece of jewellery or accessory - so if you see a design used in a necklace but you’d prefer earrings or a keyring, just get in touch and if I can make it happen for you, I will!

All my items are lovingly made by me and I want you to love them just as much as I do. Should you wish to return an item, please see below for my policies.

It is the buyer's responsibility to ensure that the address supplied at checkout by Etsy and/or Paypal is the correct current address and is formatted in accordance with the postal regulations of your country. I cannot accept responsibility or refund for lost or delayed packages due to incorrect address information.

In accordance with the terms of the EU Consumer Contracts Regulations (June 2014), you have the right to return any item within 14 days of receipt for a full refund, including original shipping/postage costs. Your refund will be issued by me (via PayPal or Direct Checkout, depending on which method you used to purchase the item originally) within 14 days of receipt by me of the item in the same pristine state that it left me. Please note that the cost of shipping the item back to me remains the responsibility of the buyer in such circumstances.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THE EU CONSUMER CONTRACTS REGULATIONS DO NOT APPLY TO CUSTOM/PERSONALISED ITEMS OR TO EARRINGS (FOR HYGIENE REASONS).

If, however, you consider an item to be faulty or damaged on arrival then please contact me and we'll work out a solution - either a refund or a repair/replacement. In these circumstances I will be responsible for your shipping costs in getting the faulty goods back to me.

Please contact me and I will provide you with an address for returns.

Please note that I am unable to refund any monies until such time as the faulty/damaged/returned goods are back in my possession.

Occasionally, stuff in the post does go missing/get lost. If you think this has happened with your item please contact me and we'll try to sort out a happy solution - either a replacement item or a complete refund. Please allow me a little time to investigate the missing item with the postal services. Please see my shipping policy above for details of how long an item should take to arrive before it is considered lost.
Payment
Payment can be via Direct Checkout using your credit or debit card, or you can pay via PayPal.

The following link will guide you through the checkout process: http://www.etsy.com/help/article/339

You do not have to have a PayPal account to pay via PayPal; you can pay using an email address and your debit or credit card. The following link provides help and guidance on how to do this: http://www.etsy.com/help/article/361

Payment should be made at the time your order is placed. Any transaction which is not completed within 24 hours will be cancelled. At this time the item will be re-listed for sale.
Shipping
All of my jewellery ships in a small gift box as standard unless otherwise stated in the item description. This will be placed in a padded envelope to ensure protection from damage.

All of my destash beading supplies and handmade findings will ship in a clear plastic grip seal bag or similar. Delicate findings, stones or crystals will be packaged in extra bubble wrap. All items will be posted in a padded envelope to ensure protection from damage.

It is the buyer's responsibility to ensure that the address supplied at checkout by Etsy and/or Paypal is the correct current address and is formatted in accordance with the postal regulations of your country. I cannot accept responsibility or refund for lost or delayed packages due to incorrect address information.

UK SHIPPING:-

I ship in the UK using Royal Mail first class post. To keep postage costs to a minimum (for both of us) I do not currently use a tracked/signed for service. Should you require a signed for/tracked service, please contact me prior to ordering.

UK first class post should arrive within one to two working days after posting but delays can occur at busy times, especially to more rural/remote locations. Please contact me if your item has not arrived after five working days (one week) following notification of despatch (not the date of your order).

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING:-

During checkout you can choose either International Standard shipping or International Tracked. Both options ship via air mail. International Standard service is not tracked and is therefore cheaper. International Tracked service provides tracking for your package and a signature will be required on delivery. This option is more costly. Please note that International Tracked merely provides tracking for your package and does not guarantee a quicker delivery time or a specific delivery date.

Most international orders arrive within around two weeks. However, please bear in mind that international orders can take up to four weeks for delivery, depending on location and other factors outside of my control (such as busy periods, bad weather, Customs clearance, etc). During very busy times, this can be as long as six weeks so please allow for this time period when ordering. I cannot consider a package to be lost in the post until the six week delivery period has passed (from the date of despatch of your order, not of your order date).

According to the information on Royal Mail’s website, delivery to Europe is within three to five working days and to the rest of the world within five to seven working days of posting. This timescale refers to the time for the package to ARRIVE in the country of destination and not subsequent Customs clearance and onward transmission by local postal services, which can take much longer.

Unfortunately, I cannot guarantee a delivery date. Although Royal Mail will despatch your package to the appropriate country on the first available flight, delivery standards in other countries do vary. Also packages can be held up in Customs in the country of arrival for several days. This is completely beyond my control and please do bear this in mind if you need your item for a specific date.

PLEASE NOTE that each country charges different customs fees, taxes and charges regarding international shipments. Please be aware of such fees before committing to a purchase. Such fees and taxes are not included in my prices and are the sole responsibility of the buyer.

SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS:-

If you have any special requirements regarding delivery (i.e. urgent next day, recorded/signed for) then please contact me before placing your order so we can agree a postage price as these options will be more expensive.

STOCK ITEMS:-

Stock items will be shipped within 24 to 48 hours of receiving cleared payment, depending on the time of day your payment is received.
Additional policies and FAQs
A NOTE ABOUT MY PHOTOS

My photographs are taken using the macro (close up) function on my camera. This setting makes items in the pictures appear much bigger than they actually are (so that you can clearly see all the detail of the items you are hoping to purchase). Please refer to the item description for full details of the size/measurements of the item and the quantity included in each listing.

CUSTOM/PERSONALISED ORDERS

Please note that any custom or personalised items are non-refundable unless there is a fault with the item caused by an error or omission on my part.

I will require photographic proof of any such fault and/or return of the item before issuing any refund.

If your custom item requires the use of a person's name, please ensure the correct name spelling is provided at the time of placing your order.
Privacy
Privacy Policy
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 authorised 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 jewellery, for example), if you contact me directly.
The Legal Base for Information Collection
The General Data Protection Regulations (May 2018) (EU) (known as GDPR 2018 throughout the rest of this Policy) requires that I explain the legal bases I rely on to collect, use, and share your personal information. This may include a buyer’s affirmative consent to receive marketing messages, compliance with legal obligations, and a seller’s use of the personal information in their legitimate interests (improving their services, for example). Throughout this privacy policy, I will explain where and why I rely on these different legal bases
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 in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by UK tax law; and
• as necessary for 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
The GDPR (2018) requires that I disclose the details of any personal information I share with third parties.
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 with my services and to 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.e. Royal Mail and/or UPS). 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
The GDPR (2018) requires me to disclose the period of time during which I will store personal 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. I generally keep your data for the following time period: 6 years (this is a requirement of Her Majesty’s Revenue & Customs (HMRC) in the UK).
Transfers of Personal Information Outside the EU
GDPR (2018) requires me to disclose whether I transfer personal information outside of the EU and the legal bases I rely upon in order to do so, such as consent and contractual necessity.
The only circumstance in which I would transfer personal information out of the European Union would be for delivery purposes through trustworthy services such as the Royal Mail or UPS or similar postal services.
Any other information will only be held by Etsy itself and for that purpose you should refer to their Privacy Policy.
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. Apart from in case of 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:
(a) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests; and
(b) 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.
How to Contact Me
For purposes of EU data protection law, I, Tracy Pawlett, am the data controller of your personal information. If you have any questions or concerns, you may email me at:
info [!at] becauseofannie.co.uk
Alternatively, you may mail me at:
Tracy Pawlett, 9 North Fen, Morton, Bourne, Lincolnshire, PE10 0XJ, United Kingdom
In circumstances where a customer contacts me in order to access, correct or delete personal information which is held by Etsy themselves, I will request that the customer contacts Etsy direct.

Frequently asked questions

Gift wrapping and packaging

All of my jewellery ships in a small Because of Annie gift box or a pretty organza/velvet bag - see individual item descriptions for details.

If you are shipping a gift direct to the recipient, I can include a small, handwritten gift tag with your message on it. Please just let me know the item is a gift in the "Note to Seller" box during check out and tell me the message you would like including in your package.

I also offer a gift wrapping service. For a small additional fee, your gift boxed item will be wrapped in matte white paper with tiny pink hearts pattern and finished with a sticker bearing your own personalised message.

Custom and personalised orders

I offer a range of custom/personalised items here: http://etsy.me/1Nag1tz

Please note that any custom or personalised items are non-refundable unless there is a fault with the item caused by an error or omission on my part.

If your custom item requires the use of a person's name, please ensure the correct name spelling is provided at the time of placing your order.

Sizing details

My photographs are taken using the macro (close up) function on my camera. This setting makes items in the pictures appear much bigger than they actually are (so that you can clearly see all the detail of the items you are hoping to purchase).

To avoid any surprises or disappointments, please refer to the item description for full details of the size/measurements of the item and the quantity included in each listing.

Care instructions

My jewellery is not intended for small children or babies.

To keep your costume jewellery at its prettiest, please be sure to remove it before sleeping, bathing, showering or swimming and avoid contact with harsh chemicals/cleaning products, as well as cosmetics, perfumes, lotions, etc.

Your resin jewellery can be cleaned with a wipe of a soft cloth if need be.

Do you charge extra shipping if I order more than one item?

No, I only charge one flat rate shipping charge. Order as many items as you like and only pay the same fee for shipping.

You can see my current shipping charges by clicking on the "Shipping & Policies" tab on individual items and then selecting your location from the drop down menu.

How long will my order take to arrive?

I ship in the UK using Royal Mail first class post.

International orders are shipped via either International Standard shipping (not tracked) or International Tracked shipping - you can choose which during checkout.

According to Royal Mail’s website, delivery to Europe is within 3 to 5 working days and to the rest of the world within 5 to 7 working days of posting. This refers to the time for the package to ARRIVE in the country of destination and not subsequent Customs clearance and onward transmission by local postal services, which can take longer.

However, most international orders arrive within around two weeks, although I cannot guarantee a delivery date.

Please see my policies for further information about shipping.

Returns/Refunds

Please refer to my policies for full details regarding returns and refunds.

You have the right to return any item within 14 days of receipt for a full refund, including original shipping/postage costs. Please note that the cost of shipping the item back to me remains the responsibility of the buyer in such circumstances (excludes custom/personalised items and earrings for pierced ears, for hygiene reasons).

If your item is faulty or damaged on arrival (or doesn't arrive at all!), please contact me as soon as possible and we'll work out a solution, either a replacement or a refund.

Can I track my order?

I ship in the UK using Royal Mail first class post which does not include tracking and no signature is required on delivery. If you would like to add tracking/guaranteed delivery, please contact me before placing your order and I can arrange this for you at extra cost.

International orders are shipped via either International Standard shipping (not tracked) or International Tracked shipping - you can choose which during checkout.

Please note that tracking does not mean that your item will be created quicker, nor does it mean faster shipping time or a guaranteed delivery date.

How long before my order is ready to ship?

In stock items will usually ship within 1 to 2 working days after receipt of cleared payment, depending on the time of day your order is received.

Custom and made to order items will ship within 3 working days of receipt of cleared payment.

You will receive an estimated dispatch date at checkout. You will be notified again once your order has actually shipped.

Please allow for international time zones if you are outside the UK.

Except during busy periods, I do not work weekends. If you place your order on a Friday evening or over the weekend, I will not normally begin creating your piece until Monday.
