⚠️ 𝓗𝓸𝓵𝓲𝓭𝓪𝔂 𝓞𝓻𝓭𝓮𝓻 𝓘𝓷𝓯𝓸 & 𝓓𝓮𝓪𝓭𝓵𝓲𝓷𝓮𝓼 ⚠️

𝕳𝖔𝖑𝖎𝖉𝖆𝖞 𝕾𝖍𝖔𝖕 𝖀𝖕𝖉𝖆𝖙𝖊 | Friday, December 2nd at 12pm CST
Our BIG holiday update will include lots of your favorite staples, which will be Ready to Ship, along with some gorgeous one-of-a-kind beauties from our Shield Maiden, Viking, and Reliquary Collections. This will also be your last chance to order a Runic Arm Ring, which will be discontinued indefinitely on Sunday, December 4th at 11:59pm CST. 

𝒫𝒮𝒜 | There are only 𝐭𝐰𝐨 𝐡𝐮𝐦𝐚𝐧𝐬 behind this business. We create each piece by hand, prepare each package for shipping, then deliver them in-person to our central post office. We also manage every other aspect of this art business, like communications, website management, online sales, social media, scheduling, public relations, etc. All of this is on top of operating three other art businesses and a brick & mortar shop in the historic French Quarter. We can do all without the benefit of an outsourced production team or bots because we are organized and use our limited time wisely.

ALL of the info you need regarding Holiday Ordering can be found below, in the Listing Details, and/or in your Order Details.

• Unsure of whether an item is "Ready to Ship" or "Made to Order"? Each listing will note this in the description, but feel free to inquire. 
• Please let us know in the Order Notes if you are needing items for Hanukkah. 
• If you have placed an Order, your anticipated shipping time is listed in your Order details. 
• Please do not message us on multiple platforms with shipping time inquiries, which only serves to slow down our overall response time. 

𝒫𝐿𝐸𝒜𝒮𝐸, help us by choosing handmade gifts with enough time to be completed and shipped. 𝐖𝐞 𝐚𝐫𝐞𝐧'𝐭 𝐚𝐛𝐥𝐞 𝐭𝐨 𝐫𝐮𝐬𝐡 𝐨𝐫𝐝𝐞𝐫𝐬 𝐭𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐚𝐫𝐞 𝐫𝐞𝐜𝐞𝐢𝐯𝐞𝐝 𝐚𝐟𝐭𝐞𝐫 𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐬𝐞 𝐝𝐞𝐚𝐝𝐥𝐢𝐧𝐞𝐬.

Privacy Policy

To fulfill your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorized Big Cartel to provide to me), such as your name, email address, mailing 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, for example), if you contact me directly.

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 fulfill 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 Big Cartel Seller Policy and Terms of Use. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Big Cartel Seller Policy and Terms of Use.

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. Big Cartel. I share information with Big Cartel as necessary to provide you my services and comply with my obligations under both the Big Cartel Seller Policy and Big Cartel Terms of Use.
  2. 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.

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: 7 years.

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:

  3. 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.
  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.
