YOU WILL SEE THAT MOST ROUND STONES HAVE A CHOICE OF AMOUNT. THIS HELPS TO KEEP THE SHIPPING FEES DOWN ON SUCH TINY STONES :) YOU MAY HAVE SEEN, THAT DUE TO A SYSTEM ERROR BILLING WISE A COUPLE WEEKS AGO, I 'HAD' POSTED THAT I WOULD NO LONGER BE OFFERING COUPONS..... "FORTUNATELY" THE ISSUE HAS BEEN RESOLVED AND ALL IS BACK TO NORMAL SO FAR. I AM SO GLAD BECAUSE I AM LISTING THE LAST OF MANY ITEMS. I NEED TO TAKE A BREAK FROM SHARING MY COLLECTION FOR A WHILE SO I WILL LIST WHAT I HAVE ON CLEARANCE UNTIL IT EITHER RUNS OUT OR UNTIL JANUARY 31ST, WHICH EVER COMES FIRST. IF A LISTING SAYS IT IS THE LAST I AM SHARING ETC, IT TRULY IS. SOME NEWER OR HANDMADE ITEMS ARE LISTED WITH HIGHER PRICES TO OFFSET THE HUGE DISCOUNT BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT CLEARANCE. I DO NOT WANT TO FORCE YOU TO MAKE SEPERATE PURCHASES FOR ITEMS I DON'T WANT A CODE USED ON ETC. THIS MAKES IT EASIER FOR BOTH OF US AND ELIMINATES SECONDARY TRANSACTION FEES FOR YOU ;) BUT...COUPON CODES MAY NOT BE APPLIED TO 'SPECIAL ORDERS' OR ITEMS YOU HAVE ME CREATE FOR YOU... PLEASE BE AWARE AND REMEMBER THAT IF YOU FORGET TO USE ANY CODE DURING CHECKOUT WE CANNOT REFUND YOU THE DIFFERENCE. IT CAUSES TROUBLES AT YEAR END TO REFUND FOR SUCH REASONS.
=!=
AGAIN, PLEASE ASK ANY AND ALL QUESTIONS YOU HAVE ABOUT AMOUNT IN STOCK OR SHIPPING TIME, ADDRESS ETC 'BEFORE COMMITTING TO YOUR PURCHASE'. SOME ISSUES CANNOT BE CHANGED AFTER YOU HAVE PAID...I CAN HELP MORE EASILY BEFOREHAND :)

ANY MADE TO ORDER ITEMS TAKE A COUPLE DAYS LONGER TO FULFILL. PLEASE ASK ANY AND ALL SHIPPING QUESTIONS..."BEFORE" CHECKOUT.

LARGER ORDERS TAKE LONGER TO PREPARE AS I COUNT OUT EACH ITEM AT THE TIME OF PACKAGING.

AS OF JULY 8TH, 2015...I WOULD ASK THAT IF YOU DISAGREE WITH MY ADDITIONAL ITEM FEES, THAT YOU PLEASE REFRAIN FROM MAKING A PURCHASE. LEAVING LOWER FEEDBACK BASED ON THOSE ADDITIONAL SHIPPING/FEES THAT YOU AGREED TO AT THE TIME OF CHECKOUT IS NEITHER APPROPRIATE NOR COMMON PRACTICE AMONG ETSIANS. I CANNOT POSSIBALLY EAT THE FEES ASSOCIATED WITH SHARING MY COLLECTION OF GOODIES AND CONTINUE TO HAVE SUCH LOW PRICES WHEN COMPARED TO OTHER SHOPS HERE. "I DO NOT" GET TO POCKET SHIPPING FEES. TO ASSUME THAT I DO IS UNKIND AND INCORRECT. I RECOUP A PORTION OF THE ETSY, PAYPAL AND PACKAGING FEES. ETSY CHARGES A $0.20 LISTING FEE PER ITEM THAT SELLS. THEY ALSO CHARGE A PERCENTAGE OF THE ITEM COST. PAYPAL CHARGES AN INITIAL TRANSACTION FEE 'AND' A PERCENTAGE FEE BASED ON ITEM COST. I ALSO HAVE TO PAY FOR PACKAGING MATERIALS FOR EACH DIFFERENT RHINESTONE. "I ONLY CHARGE THE SINGLE $0.20 LISTING FEE ON ADDITIONAL ITEMS FOR USA BUYERS AND ADD $0.10 FOR THE HUGE RATE HIKE ON MY INTERNATIONAL BUYERS. I ACTUALLY DO EAT THE OTHER COSTS MYSELF AND REFRAIN FROM PASSING THEM ON TO EVERYONE. THIS IS MOSTLY COMMON SENSE BUT IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS REGARDING "SHIPPING"...PLEASE ASK BEFORE MAKING A PURCHASE. AN EDUCATED SHOPPER IS A HAPPY SHOPPER. I CHOOSE TO BE AN EDUCATED SHOPPER MYSELF ;) I WANT YOU TO BE AS WELL SO THAT I CAN CONTINUE TO SHARE MY RHINESTONES WITH YOU :)

💥 ANY MADE TO ORDER ITEMS SUCH AS CHAIN AND PRESET STONES TAKE A COUPLE DAYS LONGER TO FULFILL.

✉ PLEASE ASK ANY AND ALL SHIPPING OR STONE SIZE QUESTIONS..."BEFORE" CHECKOUT. PURCHASES ARE DEALT WITH IN THE ORDER THEY ARE RECEIVED.

🌷 LARGER ORDERS TAKE LONGER TO PREPARE AS I COUNT OUT EACH ITEM AT THE TIME OF PACKAGING.

🚨PLEASE MAKE SURE YOUR ADDRESS IS CORRECT "BEFORE" YOU CHECKOUT.
WE SHIP TO THE ADDRESS YOU PROVIDE WITH PAYMENT IN ORDER TO HAVE SELLER AND BUYER PROTECTION. NO CHANGES CAN BE MADE AFTER THE FACT. IF YOU NEED SHIPPING TO AN ALTERNATE ADDRESS YOU MUST CHANGE IT IN PAYPAL YOURSELF "BEFORE PURCHASE". NO EXCEPTIONS. IF YOU MOVE OR A PACKAGE IS RETURNED TO US DUE TO UNKNOWN ADDRESS, YOU MUST PAY TO RE-SHIP AND TO COVER PAYPAL AND ETSY FEES CHARGED TO DO SO. IF YOU REFUSE TO PAY FOR RE-SHIPPING YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE A REFUND AND YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE YOUR ITEMS. THEY WILL BE IN FORFEIT AND GO BACK INTO MY INVENTORY. "PLEASE CHECK YOUR SHIPPING ADDRESS BEFOREHAND."

🚚 ✈ "VERY SIGNIFICANT SHIPPING INFORMATION!!".....::::SPECIAL ATTENTION TO MY INTERNATIONAL SHOPPERS:::: ALL SHIPPING PRICES INCREASED AT THE END OF MAY 2015 BUT INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING TOOK THE HARDEST HIT. PACKAGES EVEN THE SLIGHTEST BIT OVER 2 OUNCES NOW INCREASE BY ANOTHER NEARLY $3... PACKAGES OVER 4 OUNCES... 'ADD YET ANOTHER $3' TO THE PREVIOUS $3 ON TOP OF THE ALREADY RAISED PRICES... I HAVE NO WAY OF KNOWING WHAT THE WEIGHT OF YOUR ORDER WILL BE UNTIL I PACKAGE IT. "I DO NOT OFFER REFUNDS FOR OVERAGES"...REASON BEING THAT AT THE END OF THE YEAR IT CAN CAUSE SERIOUS HEADACHES DURING TAX TIME. IT CAN COSTS US $300 OR MORE TO HAVE TO PAY A PROFESSIONAL JUST TO DEDUCT REFUNDS. WE ARE NOT WILLING TO TAKE THE CHANCE OF THAT HAPPENING. I AM TRYING TO BE FAIR WITH THE HUGE INCREASE 'THE POSTAL SYSTEM' FORCED ON ALL OF US. IT WAS NOT 'MY DOING.' I HAVE SPLIT THE DIFFERENCE WITH MY INITIAL SHIPPING FEES, ADDING ONLY $1.27...(WHICH IS REALLY LESS THAN HALF OF THE ACTUAL POTENTIAL COSTS) TO MY PREVIOUS FEE AMOUNT. I ADDED $0.10 PER ADDITIONAL ITEM MAKING IT $0.30 INSTEAD OF $0.20, ($0.20 IS THE ETSY LISTING FEE CHARGED FOR EVERY ITEM AND EVERY ADDITIONAL ITEM EVEN IF IT IS THE SAME TYPE). IF YOUR PACKAGE CONTAINS ONLY 3 ITEMS BUT WEIGHS 6 ,7 OR 8 OUNCES FOR EXAMPLE...I CAN END UP PAYING THE EXTRA $6+ FOR YOU WITHOUT COMPLAINT! THIS HAPPENS A LOT, I LOSE $ IN DOING THAT BUT NEVER COMPLAIN TO YOU. I ALSO USUALLY ADD A FEW EXTRA STONES TO EVERY ORDER IN CASE YOU DROP OR DAMAGE ANY WHEN USING THEM OR IN CASE ANY ARE DEFECTIVE FROM THE FACTORY. ""IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH THE NEW SHIPPING FEES PLEASE REFRAIN FROM MAKING A PURCHASE WITH US."" SHIPPING INCLUDES PAYPAL FEES, ETSY FEES, COST TO SHIP AND A PORTION OF THE COST FOR ENVELOPE PACKAGING, ZIPLOCK BAGS FOR THE STONES, INK AND PAPER FOR THE LABELS. I DO NOT CHARGE FOR ALL THE TIME INVOLVED. I OFTEN HAVE HUGE SALES OFFERING THESE PRECIOUS SPARKLES AT VERY LOW PRICES BECAUSE I ENJOY SHARING THEM. IF IT BECOMES A HASSLE FOR ME AND PEOPLE BEGIN TO TRY HAGGLING OVER SHIPPING COSTS, (ESPECIALLY 'AFTER' THEY HAVE PAID) I WILL NO LONGER OFFER INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING. THIS IS A FACT. DURING SALES MANY ITEMS END UP BEING $0.60. IF I WERE TO ABSORB THE LISTING FEES, ETSY % FEES, PAYPAL TRANSACTION FEES, PAYPAL % FEES AS WELL AS ALL SHIPPING SUPPLIES...I WOULD BE SO FAR IN THE RED THAT I MIGHT AS WELL PAY PEOPLE TO TAKE MY RHINESTONES AWAY. I AM NOT A COMPANY. I AM A PERSON WHO IS SELLING OFF THEIR JEWELRY MAKING SUPPLIES AND RHINESTONE COLLECTION. THAT IS ALL. USA SHIPPING INCREASED BY A VERY SMALL AMOUNT, THAT IS WHY IT STILL COSTS SO MUCH LESS THAN INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING. IT IS NOT MY DOING, MY CHOICE OR MY FAULT. AGAIN...IF YOU ARE AN INTERNATIONAL SHOPPER AND YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH THE SHIPPING COSTS...PLEASE REFRAIN FROM MAKING A PURCHASE. ALSO...FIRST CLASS POSTED INTERNATIONAL ORDERS TAKE WEEKS TO MORE THAN A MONTH (AND BEYOND IF STUCK IN CUSTOMS) TO BE DELIVERED BY THE POSTAL SYSTEM. THIS IS EXPECTED AND STANDARD. IT IS THE SAME IF I ORDER ITEMS OUTSIDE THE USA...IT TAKES WEEKS TO MORE THAN A MONTH FOR ME TO RECEIVE 'MY' ORDER. "MY SHIPPING TIME" IS THE DAY I PUT YOUR ORDER IN THE MAILBOX. THE REALITY IS THAT THIS APPLIES TO EVERY SINGLE SELLER "AND", AVERAGE PERSON SHIPPING A PACKAGE TO ANOTHER COUNTRY ACROSS THE GLOBE, EVEN YOU, IF YOU SHIP A PACKAGE TO SOMEONE FAR AWAY. I DO NOT OWN OR OPERATE ANY ENTITY USED TO TRANSPORT YOUR ORDER ACROSS BOARDERS, ON TRAINS, PLANES OR SHIPS, NOR DO I WORK AT EVERY CUSTOMS CHECKPOINT ON THE WAY TO YOUR HOME, OR ANY OF THE POSTAL OFFICES BETWEEN HERE AND THERE. THEREFORE...IT IS 100% OUT OF MY CONTROL ONCE TAKEN FROM MY MAILBOX. THIS IS COMMON SENSE, PLEASE BE AWARE. I WILL STOP OFFERING INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING IF I AM BLAMED OR HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR THE FUNCTION OF THE WORLD'S POSTAL SYSTEM, CUSTOMS OFFICES, EXPORT METHODS OR ANY OTHER ENTITY OF WHICH I AM NOT "PERSONALLY" INVOLVED. WHEN I SHOP INTERNATIONALLY I UNDERSTAND THE SHIPPING PROCESS AND NEVER EXPECT ANY DIFFERENT, NOR DO I BLAME THE PERSON I PURCHSED ITEMS FROM.....

🔴🔴🔴ATTENTION INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS 🔴🔴🔴
➕➕➕SHIPPING COSTS GOING OUTSIDE THE UNITED STATES DID GO UP IN PRICE ON MAY 30TH 2015. RATES INCREASED AN AVERAGE OF USD $1.27 TO OVER $3.00 COMPARED TO 2014 COSTS FOR A MERE OUNCE, THIS IS REFLECTED IN MY NEW INITIAL SHIPPING FEES. THE ADDITIONAL FEES INCLUDE THE COSTS ASSOCIATED WITH ETSY AND PAYPAL. EACH ITEM ADDS WEIGHT AND FEES. I CHARGE A PORTION OF THE ACTUAL COSTS. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE OR ACCEPT THE SHIPPING COSTS PLEASE REFRAIN FROM MAKING A PURCHASE. ONCE A PURCHASE IS MADE IT MEANS THAT YOU HAVE AGREED TO ACCEPT THE COSTS CHARGED. IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS ABOUT THESE SHIPPING FEES PLEASE ASK "BEFORE" MAKING A PURCHASE. I DO NOT OFFER REFUNDS FOR ANY CHANGE OF HEART/BUYERS REMORSE.

RHINESTONES ARE MEASURED IN MILLIMETERS, (MM). IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A CALIPER FOR MEASURING ITEMS YOU CAN USE A RULER ETC AND CONVERT THE SIZES. THIS LINK BELOW IS TO A CONVERSION WEBSITE, VERY HELPFUL ;)

SHOP RULES...

PLEASE ASK QUESTIONS ABOUT SHIPPING TIME OR ANY OTHER NEED YOU HAVE ""BEFORE"" MAKING A PURCHASE.

HANDLING TIME MAY BE 3 - 5 BUSINESS DAYS BUT, I RESERVE THE RIGHT TO ALLOW 7 - 9 BUSINESS DAYS IN THE ETSY SYSTEM AS A BUFFER, IN CASE OF UNFORSEEN EVENTS.
PLEASE TAKE A MOMENT UPON RECEIPT OF YOUR PURCHASE TO STOP BY MY PAGE AND LEAVE FEEDBACK. I WANT TO "KNOW" THAT IT HAS REACHED YOU SAFELY AND THAT YOU ARE HAPPY. IF FOR ANY REASON YOU ARE NOT SATISFIED BE SURE TO CONTACT ME SO THAT I MAY MAKE THINGS RIGHT.

I will do my best to ship orders within 3-5 "business" days, once payment has cleared. Once the Postman has physically taken your package I will mark it shipped in your purchases section and add tracking if there is any. Tracking can also be found in your PayPal account's activity page. If you have notifications from PayPal set correctly you will receive an email when I print your shipping label, this does not mean it is physically shipped. As I said...refer to your purchases section in Etsy to check if I have marked it shipped.

PRICES AND SHOP INFO...

My prices are much lower than 'most' shops here. This is because I mostly purchase stones in bulk. I set my prices based on both what I paid and the rareness of a jewel. Rare stones cost me more, so this clearly is passed on when I chose to share them.
Just to clarify, I am not a retail store :) I am letting go of excess personal jewelry supplies and collections. I do not restock most items. Once they are gone that may be it. I search for and collect unique rhinestones and glass or crystal items. Most of the glass and crystal I collect is of vintage origins, therefore not all pieces are in pristine condition. I love this fact :) They have a history, be it hiding on a dusty shelf in a forgotten warehouse, or packed lovingly away by a fellow collector.
