***PLEASE NOTE - DUE TO THE BARK ON THIS PIECE I CANNOT SELL OUTSIDE OF THE UK - this is due to import/export restrictions***
This is tree that I made out of glass in my Staffordshire glass studio. Made painstakingly from glass fused together in a kiln at 750c to soften and create this sculpture. I then checked over each individual melted shard for any sharpness and then cold-worked them it to be safe. After that, it was placed in a handmade rustic stand.
The decoration measures approximately 11.5cm high (including the stand) and 6cm wide at the widest part.
As this is glass, please keep out of reach of children and pets, and handle with care, trying to avoid knocking it as it will be fragile.
Your item will either be sent by Tracked 48 (UK) or Air Mail Standard (untracked)
***As this is a completely handmade item it may come with the odd tiny "imperfection" that comes with being an artisan piece.***

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 of jewellery, 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
• To provide my insurance company details about the location of my customers as a percentage of non-UK customers.
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 like Royal Mail or DPD. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
• 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 such as tax issues; (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, For example Google is Privacy Shield certified. I currently back-up my data on Google with 2 step verification and the file being encrypted and password protected for security.
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.

Sorry, at the moment I am not undertaking any commissions unless they are for bulk orders (which is usually around £250 minimum order). If I am not working direct from my heart and inspiration I like to work in close conjunction with a customer, making sure they are getting what they want and creating from my heart - for them. This is why I have the minimum order due to the time that I put in.
I will ship to anywhere in the world except for France and Russia. Though please note that it will be sent air mail without tracking and that it may take some while before it arrives. You may also be charged any customs and tax fees that you may be liable to when it enters your country. The items are sold in accordance with UK laws and regulations and by buying an item you are agreeing to that.
