Born to bead

My name is Erin and I am the creator of Beadful Strings.

When I was a little girl (like so many I'm sure) I would go through my mom's (and my sisters, but don't tell them) jewelry, and try the jewelry on in front of the mirror. My mom had beautiful vintage crystal jewelry handed down to her by my grandmother and beaded purses that I imagined I would one day wear in public (not just in the bathroom) with pride.

Time passed and late in 1996 I was in Seattle with my sister. We walked into a darling boutique that carried some of the most beautiful handmade jewelry. I fell in love, just like I was a little girl again. Of course I was young and couldn't afford more than a pair of earrings (barely, and they are still one of my favorite pairs of earrings). On the plane ride home I told my sister that I wanted to try and make jewelry.

My first creation was an eyeglass chain that I used for several years. It took me a while to actually make anything I would consider decent jewelry. I am completely self taught and have never taken a class.

There was a time when I thought I would never bead again (got married with instant family and a baby on the way), but after a few years my husband encouraged me to give it a try one last time, and open an Etsy shop. He set up my workspace, made shelves for my beads, and set me free. I haven't looked back.

People always comment on how I must be crazy to work with these tiny beads. I do spend a lot of time with them, but I feel most at peace when I'm able to work in the groove, counting out beads (perhaps not so much at peace when my thread gets knotted, but it just so happens I'm pretty good at untying knots, too) and seeing how they come together to form something beautiful.

I really love working with the tiny beads. They tend to create more delicate, silky, feminine pieces. However, I am bound by my creative process that dictates what I'm excited about at the moment, which might include bigger beads if the color is right.

Thank you for reading and I hope you like what you see.

By the way, I do wear my grandmother's costume jewelry with pride. In public!

    With each piece of jewelry my plan to take over the world, one bead at a time, is realized. I really just love beads. I love seeing a pile of beads being worked into a colorful, unique piece of jewelry. This makes me happy.

I ordered the wrong size, now what?

It is really important to have the correct measurements before ordering. Each piece of jewelry is handmade, to order, by me, so returns for another size require me to remake the item. If the incorrect size is ordered, contact me through Etsy. I will have you send it back to me, and for a nominal fee + return shipping, I will remake the item and send it back to you.

What if my piece of jewelry broke?

As we all know, sometimes beadwork can break. It is a hazard of beading, sometimes something happens and a piece will break. I do understand that. If you have a piece that broke due to what you feel was not misuse, please save the beads (as many as you can) and contact me. I will have you ship the piece back to me and I will remake it and ship it back to you.

I want you to love your jewelry for a very long time!

I do not live in the USA, will I have taxes or VAT fees to pay?

All international packages are sent through the U.S. Postal Service, First Class, International. The price of the item or the shipping cost does NOT include any customs fees or duties that may be incurred when it reaches your country. You are responsible for any fees or duties required by your country to be paid. Your item will be shipped with the full value of the item noted, and as merchandise. I DO NOT lower item values, and do not mark items as "gifts".
The following link is a duty calculator to help calculate the duty on your order. Keep in mind that it may not account for any fees from your postal service.
