Origin Story

About Me
I'm Chesca (she/her), a UK-based Illustration graduate with a piece of pencil lead embedded in my little finger and a tattoo on my palm from an "incident" with a sharp pen. Hopefully one day these will give me magical art superpowers in much the same way that the spider created Spiderman.
I love to draw and make things, and do so regularly (go figure) in my little studio in South Wales, where I live with my partner Matt and our rescue saluki lurcher Roo.

About My Products
I make statement laser cut jewellery, usually out of wood, with my illustrations printed on them. I'm inspired by the natural world, with a touch of fantasy. I like unusual fashion, and attention grabbing pieces, so this is what I aim for when I design.

About the Business
I've been going strong since 2014! Man I feel old. I made my name as Birch Please (yeah that's me, I'm not just stealing the whole business concept), but I have now rebranded to Chesca the Illustrator in order to open up more possibilities for creation. Birch Please made jewellery out of birch wood, Chesca the Illustrator makes whatever she pleases out of whatever looks good (which, granted, involves a lot of jewellery, what ya gonna do. I need time to create the other stuff, jeez, be patient).

    Roo the saluki lurcher impatiently watches Francesca pack and post all your orders when she SHOULD be feeding him treats and showering him with attention (a 24/7 job in itself).

Returns and exchange details
I will not accept returns on earrings for hygiene reasons, unless they are faulty or incorrect.

Refunds, or exchanges, will be given upon receipt of the returned as-new item. I will not cover your postage to return the items unless there has been an error on my part; this will be your responsibility. The refund will be for the item price only, not the shipping. The customer is responsible for the cost of return shipping if there has been no error on my part.
Orders are dispatched on Mondays and Thursdays. If I am working late into the night you may get your dispatch notification the following day.

:: UK ::

UK orders are sent by Royal Mail 1st Class, large letter.
This is estimated to arrive within 1-3 business days.


Non-UK orders are sent by Royal Mail International Standard.
This is estimated to arrive in approx 5-10 business days.
There is an option at checkout to add tracking for an extra fee.
This does not mean your item will arrive faster.

:: M.I.A Packages ::

Customs, Christmas, adverse weather, global pandemics, and bad luck can all delay a parcel. Please be patient, and wait 2 weeks in the UK or 6 weeks for the rest of the world before assuming your item is lost.

If you still haven't had anything arrive within those times, contact me and upon confirmation of your delivery address I will send out a replacement.

There may be customs charges on international orders - you will have to check the regulations of your own country. I am not responsible for these.
Additional policies and FAQs
It is the responsibility of the customer to provide a full and correct address. If you notice you have provided an incorrect or out of date address please contact me before I have dispatched your item so I can send it to the right place.

Again, it is the responsibility of YOU the customer to provide a full and complete shipping address. This is the address you give ETSY, not necessarily your PayPal address. Items posted to an outdated or incomplete address will NOT be refunded or replaced.
TLDR:- Your information is provided to me through Etsy; I do not personally store your data anywhere else, physically or digitally. I will never share your information with any third party (beyond Etsy, delivery service providers, or legal obligation). If you wish to sign up to my mailing list I will require your express consent, which can be revoked at any time.


I will only ever process or store data which is 100% required to carry out my services - sending you beautiful jewellery. Your data is passed to me through Etsy. This includes:

- Your name
- Your delivery address
- Anything you may choose add in the Note to Seller section at check out or in direct messages, such as custom chain length requests or other instructions.

I will only share your data with people I can't fulfil your order without, namely Etsy and Royal Mail.

Once our transaction is complete I will only ever use your information to resolve disputes or comply with any necessary regulations or legal obligation. After four years, it will be deleted.

I would need your express consent to send you any marketing materials (and honestly I don't think I have the energy for a mailing list anyway! Ain't nobody got time for that.) and this consent could be revoked at any time.

In certain areas, such as the EU, you have the right to:

· withdraw your consent to me having your data
· request a copy of your data I have access to
· ask me to edit the information I have about you
· request the deletion of your data once our contract (sending you your purchase) is completed. This is best done directly through Etsy, as I have no control over what Etsy keeps - only access to it!
· object to use of your data for anything that isn’t related to fulfilling your order

My name is Fran Knight, and I am Keeper Of The Data for Birch Please. I do everything else too, but apparently that's not important. I do not actually physically or digitally store your data anywhere - I only have access to it within Etsy.

You can contact me through Etsy messages (please use Etsy messages instead of email, as I rarely check that account) or via post to the address at the bottom of the policies on my shop page.

If you’re not happy with how I’ve handled your data you can make a complaint to your local data protection authority.

Frequently asked questions
Do you do custom designs?

I'm afraid I do not, however I am always happy to hear suggestions.

Can I have a longer/shorter chain?

Yes, you can! Just pop a note in the Note to Seller section at checkout telling me what length you would like and I will happily make it! There is no extra charge for this. I can also provide silver plated chain upon request!

Please, please remember to tell me what length you would like, even if it's just an estimate. Don't just say "longer" and make me guess. The temptation to send a chain 3 metres long just to prove a point may one day be too great to ignore!

Wholesale availability

I am afraid due to a series of bad experiences, I have decided to suspend wholesale availability. I am currently unsure if I will ever bring it back. Sorry if that's a disappointment.

Where are all your old designs?

Okay so what was a short break turned into a longer hiatus in which I decided I was no longer happy with basically any of my old designs and I could do better now, soooo yeah they might not be coming back, sorry.
