Description

Handmade Blessingway bead featuring a handcrafted lampwork glass bead, a Swarovski crystal, intricate bead caps, and a pewter key charm. Great focal bead or pendant for a Blessingway necklace. Makes a wonderful gift for someone wishing for a baby, pregnant, breastfeeding, or working in the birth-related occupation. Perfect as a thank-you gift for a midwife, a doula, or an obstetrician. Can be used in a Red Tent or a Croning ceremony as well.

Mother’s Blessing (or Blessingway, or Blessing Way) refers to honouring a pregnant mama. Whereas a baby shower focuses on the baby and on giving gifts to the baby, the Blessingway is held to shower the mother with love and understanding from other women. One of the most well-known Blessingway traditions is making a necklace for the mama. As part of the ceremony, each woman brings with her a bead and strings it on a cord, while sharing words of wisdom and love with the mama-to-be. Together the Blessingway beads make a necklace from which the pregnant mama can draw strength throughout the last weeks of her pregnancy and in labour.

Payments

Secure options
  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Etsy keeps your payment information secure. Etsy shops never receive your credit card information.
Please pay for your purchases straight away.

I do prefer payment within 2 days. If you require more time then please do get in touch to let me know.

Payment is by Direct Checkout with Etsy or by PayPal. Note that you do not need to have a PayPal account to pay by PayPal: you can choose the option that states "I do not have a Paypal account" and follow the instructions on how to pay by a credit card of your choice. It is a secure site.

Returns & exchanges

Please note that I do not offer refunds or exchanges at this time, due to the fact that my creations are not high-priced items. With the growing cost of shipping, returning an item and paying customs fees (when required) ends up costing nearly as much as the item itself.

If there are issues with your item, please contact me and I will do my best to make it right.

Shipping policies

I ship the items within two days of payment, barring unforeseen circumstances.

Please note that I am shipping from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. I send the items via regular mail which takes 3-5 business days within Canada, 5-7 business days to USA, and 10-14 business days internationally, according to Canada Post.

I can guarantee that your item will be shipped in a timely manner. I have once walked down to post office during labour to ensure that I would get orders on their way as fast as possible. Unfortunately, I cannot guarantee a particular delivery date, as once I mail the order it's out of my hands. Please see the Canada Post site for estimates on regular mail delivery: http://www.canadapost.ca. Changing customs and mail handling policies might also affect delivery time.

Please note that the shipped items do not have tracking. This allows me to keep shipping prices low. Adding tracking to a letter traveling from Canada to US means upgrading the type of the mailing, and the cheapest option is around $20+. The cost is even higher when shipping internationally.

Additionally, to receive an item any faster (under 4 business days from Canada to US, for instance) costs around $70+, which is why I do not offer this option.

Please note that buyers from outside Canada are responsible for any and all duties and customs charges that may be incurred.
