BEST GIFT EVER. This company is run by an a making woman. She went out of her way to get a gift to the USA for my special someone. It looks beautiful on our tree. The craftsmanship is unspeakable, and I loved that she was able to put a special note on the gift as well. Wrvalso received a hand written note from the designer herself . This gift will be with us forever .

About

By Hand & Heart

Hello there! I am Ioulia and I live in Athens, Greece. One of the most inspiring places in the world.

Creating for me is a game. A game of ideas, colors and materials which started in my childhood, while watching my father creating things with anything that fell into his hands. Following in his footsteps, and after experimenting with many kinds of materials, I now live in a home full of paint brushes, paint tubes, pieces of wood, fabrics and paper. I love to try and combine them all!

I create painted pieces of contemporary accessories as well as home decor and, just to add a different flavor every now and then, use the technique of decoupage and pyrography.

I didn't really think it through before opening my Etsy shop. My spontaneity takes over every aspect of my life! It is another game for me that helps me improve my work, meet creative people from all around the planet, but most of all it helps me offer small pieces of myself to people who purchase my makings. My Etsy shop is a little window that allows people to look into me and my world.

Frequently asked questions

Care instructions

My tote bags are 100% hand painted with high quality materials.
In order to keep them for as long as possible, please do the following:
1. Hand wash only, using lukewarm water.
2. DO NOT use strong detergents while washing.
3. DO NOT turn the bag inside out while washing.
4. Iron the bag with a piece of cloth between the bag and the iron.

Though all of my jewellery are protected with a high quality varnish, which makes them waterproof, it would be better if you kept them same from large amounts of water.

Custom and personalized orders

I am always up for new challenges , so don't hesitate to contact me for any ideas you have and want me to make them true for you.
Please remember that custom made items can not be refunded, as they are made only for you.

When will my order be shipped?

All of my makings are a pure result of love and thought. Most of them take several hours to be made. As it is stated in every item's shipping details, it can be shipped within 1-2 weeks. This though is only a safety net for me, in case I am lacking some of the materials required. I usually ship within 4-5 days after your order. If you are in a great hurry, please contact me BEFORE THE PURCHASE, so to do anything possible for you.

Can i cancel my order?

Of course you can! Here at By Hand & Heart's home of colors, I want every single customer to be happy and send me back only good vibes!!If something made you change your mind, please feel free to contact me in order to proceed to cancellation, but please do so only if the order HAS NOT BEEN SHIPPED.
In case it has been shipped you have to wait for your item to arrive and then send it back to me, on YOUR EXPENSES and you will be refunded the minute the item arrives here.

Do I get a tracking number of my order?

All of my orders are sent out using the Hellenic Post Office, as Simple Air Mail. All sets of coasters and bags are send out with a tracking number. The rest of my items are sent out as simple air mail. This is only because I am trying to keep the postage cost low. If you want me to provide you with a tracking number, all you have to do is choose the shipping upgrade of "tracked postage" at your check out, before you pay.

What happens if I am not satisfied with what I have received?

I don't want our relationship to end after purchasing an item from me.

I try to take photos that show the colors as they truly are, but keep in mind that 2 same handmade items can not be identical and that there are always different screen settings on different appliances.
In case you are unhappy with what you get, contact me within 14 days after you have received your package and send it back to me within 30 days.The item must be in great condition, exactly as you received it. Hygiene items such as earrings can not be returned for health reasons. Shipping costs are the buyer's responsibility.
