Hello! Welcome to www.101BestBeads.com. I strive very hard to please my customers by offering the best beads and cabochons. All photos are taken in natural lighting and are intended to give you the best representation as we see it. All monitors are different and colors can vary.

Accepted payment methods

Returns and exchanges
I stand behind the products I sell 100%. If you are not satisfied with any of your items, please let me know right away. (Please DO NOT leave neutral or negative feedback without first contacting me to try to resolve the issue.) I am happy to exchange or refund your purchase price within 30 days of the transaction.

Should you need to return an item:

Please return your item to: 101 Best Beads - Return Dept. 61149 S. Hwy 97, Bend, OR 97702. Please return the item with insurance and delivery confirmation in the exact same condition and packaging as you received it.
Payment is accepted by Paypal. You can also send a money order or check to CHJS, LLC, 61149 S. Hwy 97. Bend, Oregon 97702. Attn: 101 Best Beads. Please include the name of the item you purchased.

If you should need help with Etsy's checkout system using Paypal please click on this link here: http://www.etsy.com/help_guide_checkout.php You can pay with a credit card without having a Paypal account. This option will be on the front page of Paypal.
I ship through US Postal Service 1st Class Mail Parcel with delivery confirmation and insurance included within the USA only. Shipping usually takes 3-7 days. Orders ship out on: Monday, Wednesday, and Fridays..only.


International mail will leave by USPS 1st class international mail and can take 10 days or even more. There is NO Delivery confirmation and NO insurance for international mail for the price of $3.75. There is always a RISK to buy internationally. You have the option of buying extra protection for $12.00 for 1st Class Registered Mail with insurance.


I will charge an extra fee of $12.00 on top of shipping costs for Registered Mail. This gives you paper tracking in which each handler will sign for the progress of your package. The extra $12.00 fee will help the post office find your package in case it is lost and insure it as well.

I greatly appreciate your understanding in this situation. I have been experiencing lost high value packages internationally recently. This will only protect both the seller and buyer.

If you would like to have your beads shipped via a carrier like UPS or FedEx, or USPS using tracking and insurance, please convo me and I can certainly quote you a price. Prices range about $45.00 and up.

When possible I do use recycled padded envelopes. I do use brand new plastic baggies and bubble wrap. Please let me know if this is a problem, if not I assume it is all good.
