Description

Handmade Blessingway bead featuring a handcrafted lampwork glass bead, Swarovski crystals, antiqued bead caps, and an antiqued pewter tree of life 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.

Returns & exchanges

I don't accept returns, exchanges, or cancellations

But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.

Returns and exchange details

Please note that I do not offer returns 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) often 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 4-6 business days within Canada, according to Canada Post. I usually ship to US and internationally by Small Packet, which normally takes 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 while in 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. 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 package 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 $60+, which is why I do not offer this option.

If you would like to check possibilities on expedited shipping, you can enter your postal code and see what is available: https://www.canadapost.ca/cpotools/apps/far/business/findARate?execution=e4s2

Please note:
============
Source postal code is K2B 6M7
Parcel dimensions are:
Width: 6 inches
Length: 9 inches
Height: 1 inch
Weight: 0.025 kg (for a single Blessingway bead), the weight will be higher for necklaces, bracelets, and multiple items.

For example, shipping to Florida, I get the following expedited options:
- Tracked Packet - USA - 6 business days - $14.24
(note that it arrives within a similar time as Small Packet but has tracking)
- Expedited Parcel - USA - 4 to 5 business days - $21.78
- XpresspostTM - USA - 3 to 4 business days - $34.69
- PriorityTM Worldwide pak - $61.92

Also note that the times of delivery are not guaranteed but are estimates by Canada Post. They also might be delayed at customs, depending on the current policies.

Because none of these policies and delivery times are under my control, I normally do not offer expedited or tracked shipping. I also am unable to refund shipping costs should the item not arrive to you on time. If you still would prefer tracked or expedited item, please let me know and I can create a listing with the expedited shipping option you choose.

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