PickledBeads' Shop Announcement

♥Shop Announcements♥ Due to Spring Break Vacation ORDERS PLACED TODAY WILL SHIP ON MAY 1ST. Mother's Day is May 11th. Plan ahead for Mom and Grandma!! I am on vacation this week so please allow more time for responses to your inquires. Thank you!

Priority Shipping (2-3 days TRANSIT) is available at checkout. (Regular shipping takes 2-4 days transit). Purchasing Priority shipping does not expedite the creation of your order (just makes the USPS get it there faster!) Shipping to Canada and other countries can take 2-4 weeks. I am out of stock of soft pink freshwater pearls :(

Creating jewelry is my passion. Each and every piece is made with care and dedication to perfection. I hope that you'll find exactly what you're looking for, right here in my shop. If not, contact me and I can create something just for you.

What makes this shop different from all the others?
1. Customer service. I am committed to answering your questions quickly, thoroughly and with a smile (even though you can't see me!) And once your order is placed, I'll let you know exactly when it will ship and I never miss a committed date.

2. Quality components = Quality products. I carefully shop for my products and sometimes the BEST components are not the cheapest. You get what you pay for. My softly rounded sterling silver letters are perfect for your princess and lay nicely against her tender skin. These letters cost more than the traditional block letters. The heart shaped lobster clasp is a very nice finishing touch and the extender chain is substantial enough to withstand a toddler's tugs. FRESHWATER PEARLS and Cubic Zirconias cost more than Swarovski pearls and crystals and are the safest choices for children's jewelry.

3. Packaging. After you have carefully chosen the perfect gift, you want to make sure it arrives in tact and presents itself in way that will light up the eyes of the recipient. All of my items are placed in an organza gift bag and then placed in a high quality chocolate brown gift box with my logo. It is then tied with ribbon and placed in a shipping BOX. Most vendors mail their item in a paper mailer. Do you know what happens to that gift box (IF they even give you one) during transit? SQUISH! That's not a very pretty presentation. I spare no expense in making sure you are proud of your gift when you present it. The recipient will immediately recognize this gift is something special!

A little about the components that I use:

STERLING SILVER
All beads, letter cubes, clasps, findings, and optional charms.
Sterling Silver is the highest quality of silver available in terms of beauty and strength. Sterling Silver is 92.5% silver and 7.5% copper, the copper is added to give the silver strength.

FRESHWATER PEARLS
I order freshwater pearls from the world's top suppliers. They are 100% lead free. The ones used in bracelets are potato shaped. Some are more "potato" shaped than others, but I try my best to use the most round ones. The coin pearls used in necklaces are rarely flawless. Usually ONE side is near perfect and the other side will have a nacre bump or small air pocket. This is considered normal and not a defect. Please keep in mind that pearls are a natural product and some do have natural imperfections.

CUBIC ZIRCONIAS
Cubic zirconia (or CZ) is the cubic crystalline form of zirconium dioxide (ZrO2). They are 100% lead free.

SWAROVSKI CRYSTALS
Genuine 32% lead "Strauss" crystal from Swarovski of Austria. These are more expensive than other crystal types but they have the best sparkle.

BIRTHSTONE CRYSTALS
If I ever mention birthstones, these are all Swarovski Crystals. Common Gemstone names have been given to the crystals that most resemble them. I occasionally use actual gemstones but the description will be very clear when gemstones are being used.

CAT'S EYE BEADS
Cat's Eye Beads are beads made of optical fiber in a manner that make them reflect light in different ways with each shift in angle. A narrow beam of light hued glass running through their middle makes them resemble cat's eyes, hence the name, Cat's Eye Beads. They have been approved by the CPSC to be safe to use in children's jewelry.

GOLD-FILLED BEADS
Unlike gold plated beads that only uses a microscopic film of gold, hence the gold coming off, gold-filled beads have a layer of karat gold, not just a microscopic film. 14k gold filled is at least 14/20th gold by weight.
