Wonderful Color

I had been silk painting and feltmaking for a number of years when I was given an opportunity to join a local community arts project where I could share my love of all things textile. I was encouraged through this work to produce work for sale and this was the start of Simply Silks.

I love to work with bold, bright colors and I focus on jewelry and accessories.

My other passion is silversmithing and in my jewelry I try to combine textiles with wirework and traditional metalsmithing techniques .

    I began my adventure in the colorful world of textiles in 2004 when I had a chance to try out silk painting while on holiday. I love bright colors and textures and discovering feltmaking has provided me the perfect medium to explore these further.

Additional policies and FAQs
Whilst I make every effort to represent the items as accurately as possible, the color accuracy of images cannot be guaranteed.
This Privacy Policy describes how and when I collect and use information when you purchase an item from me, contact me, or otherwise use my services through 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 are ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information if you contact me directly, for example for a custom order.

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 an order, to settle disputes or provide customer support;
• 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 interests to improve 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 me and I share your personal information only 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.
• 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 six years.

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 (such as 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.

How to Contact Me
For the purposes of the EU data protection law, I, Laura Guida, am the data controller of your personal information. If you have any questions or concerns you may contact me at lguida [!at] Alternatively you may mail me at:
