A beautiful keepsake ceramic heart with all the new arrival's details imprinted into the heart.
♥ HOW IT'S MADE: I cut and smooth out of the stoneware clay and then imprint each letter into the damp clay. Then I leave it to dry before it gets fired in my kiln to over 1000C. Once cool I then glaze it your chosen colour and re-fire. To finish the heart, I thread wire with colour coordinated buttons through the top of the heart so it can be hung on the wall.
♥ CUSTOM: please let me know what details you'd like included e.g full name, date of birth, time of birth, weight. You also choose the colour glaze, so the finished piece fits your decor. You can choose whether the 'Welcome to the World' is in English or Welsh. If you would like a different phrase or language please message me.
♥ SIZE: The heart itself is approx 12cm across its widest part, and 12cm tall (excluding the wire.)
♥ TIME: please allow 2-3 weeks for me to make the heart, plus postage time.
♥ POSTAGE: UK postage is free and via Royal Mail (first class). Other countries - via Royal Mail Airmail and take 1-3 weeks depending on where you live.
♥ GIFTING: all my pieces come prettily wrapped in tissue, ready to gift. There is an option to add a gift message when you go through checkout.

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, for example), if you contact me directly.
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 tax law; and
Information Sharing and Disclosure
Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:
Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies. 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.
Transfers of Personal Information Outside the EU
I may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the US and other jurisdictions. As a result, I may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction. If I am deemed to transfer information about you outside of the EU, I rely on Privacy Shield as the legal basis for the transfer, as Google Cloud is Privacy Shield certified.
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 (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 (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 purposes of EU data protection law, I, Aquila Cook, am the data controller of your personal information. If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternately, you may mail me at:

I ordered three of these, a blue and grey for my own boys and a pink as a present. I couldn't be happier, they are stunning and even nicer than pictures can capture. They arrived in a decent timeframe, given current postal delays and were packaged really well to prevent breakage. Each item was packaged really nicely. I'm already thinking of ordering more items as presents :)
