I am honest about what I don't know and if I make an educated guess, I will tell you what I'm doing. 99% of my items are never used, completely mint, but if I find some great salvaged beads, I will pass them on and let you know where they have come from. Some of my best beads, including trade beads, had been used and collected before they came to me.

Thanks for reading and I hope you come back often!
