About

My name is Jennifer Setters, and I live in chilly chilly northern remote part of British Columbia, Canada. I work from my studio SkyValley here on my acreage. The name SkyValley comes from when I look out my windows of my studio all I see is sky and the huge valley. It takes my breath away everyday.

Here's an explanation as to why I have opened up my gem shop.

I have been making jewelry for many, many years and I am a self confessed bead aholic. I have this burning desire to have gems. It's crazy but I bet alot you you know exactly what I am talking about.

I have created this shop in the hopes to fulfill

I have been making jewelry for many, many years and I am a self confessed bead aholic. I have this burning desire to have gems. It's crazy but I bet alot you you know exactly what I am talking about.

what I could not exactly find out their myself. I wanted to find a store that carried good gems with no surprises. Lets face it we all have those drawers full of gems we will never use, right. Inclusions galore, cracks etc. It can be so disappointing to a bead aholic to get a strand of gems and you can only use half.

Soooo this is what I am trying to do with this store. You will always get A-AAA gems that are clearly stated, if there is a slight inclusion I will tell you. If there are tiny micro black dots(oh we all know those) I will tell you. No surprises.

I am trying not to do normal mark up on gemstones.That said remember I do have all the risk and overhead involved, shipping and customs etc. But I am trying to keep A-AAA gemstones reasonable.

I am open to any ideas that a designer has about bringing in specific gems. I will do my best to see what I can do. Dont be shy just ask me.

I will ship out either the same day or the next, with the exception if you order on a Friday it may not go out till Monday because Canada does not have post office hours on Saturday.

I will reserve items for short periods of time. Just ask me to make arrangements.

I will do layaway. Sometimes if your order is large we can do that.

Now I am going to put a little of the onus on you. The faster you orders are paid the sooner I can bring in new gems. So lets keep that in mind for everyones sake.

I accept returns minus the shipping. If the beads are not your thing why keep them.

So what I am trying to do is create a (in my dreams) perfect bead store. Everything I wanted but couldnt quite find. Now dont think I am saying there isnt good gemstone dealers right here on Etsy because I am not. Trust me I buy from others also.

Work with me and I will give you my best. I dont see that anyone is in competion with anyone. We are all different and unique in our own way. Convo me anytime with suggestions, wants, anything. I really would love to make this your perfect bead store.

Oh just a side note if one of your suggestions is to give you 10 free bead strand with every order, well, hmmmmmm, um. No!! LOL Wish I could.
