About

I finally branched out to sell some of my favorite beads on Etsy

While running a brick & mortar Bead shop with my mother, I decided to branch out & began selling some of my favorite beads & supplies on Etsy.

I have been designing & creating beaded jewelry for 15+ yrs. Though seedbeading is one of my more recent endeavors, I love to sit down and take on the challenge of designing something new with 2-hole Czech beads. The design possibilities are endless with the endless varieties of new 2-hole, 3-hole & shaped Czech glass beads currently being manufactured in the Czech Republic.

When I first started beading, 2-hole beads were far and few between & usually they were of a vintage German glass variety, but now they are making a huge come back in Contemporary bead work. I am always excited to see the new designs beaders are creating all over the world with these 2-hole Czech beads.

SuperDuos are by far my favorite variety of 2-hole Czech beads to work with. I feel that the SuperDuo is to the beading world, as the Lego is to the world of toy building blocks. The interlocking shape of the SuperDuo makes it fit together beautifully in so many varieties of bead patterns.

I strive to carry a unique selection of beads on my Etsy store, mostly Czech (because it is my love). I hope you will enjoy the selections of Czech beads and much, much more in my online Etsy shop at www.BeadBistroCrafts.com

Hi There and WELCOME to our Etsy shop!

* PLEASE NOTE: all packages will ship within 1-2 business days.

Here are a few informative facts about PRESSED CZECH GLASS beads -

BEAD QUANTITIES -
~ Some Czech beads are weighed out by the gram (such as the SuperDuo and MiniDuo beads). The quantity of beads per gram can vary depending on the finish & size of the beads. Below are some approximations to help you determine how many beads you'll need.

20 grams of SUPERDUOS - there are approximately 250 - 290 beads
10 grams of SUPERDUOS - there are approximately 130 - 145 beads
10 grams of MINIDUOS - there are approximately 195 - 225 beads

GLASS COLORS & FINISHES -
~ We do our best to make our images as true to color & quality as possible; however, the colors & finishes of these Czech beads can shift slightly from the image you are viewing, for mainly 3 reasons:

1.) LIGHTING -
(the lighting by which they are being viewed can make the color appear darker or lighter/brighter) We do all of our photography in a light box with LED lights- meant to simulate natural day light conditions. The colors may look slightly different in other indoor lighting conditions or low light conditions)

2.) COMPUTER MONITORS -
Depending on each individuals monitor settings, hue & color can shift slightly from our original image of the beads.

3.) PRODUCTION LOTS -
Czech beads are made in Glass factories, as they have been for many decades. In these factories the beads are pressed & finished. Glass colors are mixed to achieve base glass color & sometimes finishes are then applied to achieve a whole different color or effect.
Since these beads are made in batches (production lots), each lot of beads can change slightly from a previous production lot (though it will be given the same color # by the manufacturer).
I do my best to inform you within the description (if to my eye) there are noticeable color or finish differences from one lot to the next.

QUALITY CONTROL -
~ Since many of these 2-hole Czech beads are pressed you may find from time to time, that one of the holes is clogged. Please check the 2nd hole as you are stringing each bead in your pattern to make sure the 2nd hole is not clogged. Though you will probably only find this in 2-4 beads per pack, it does occur, and checking both holes will save you from frustration when you are in the middle of your bead project.

Thanks & Happy Beading!

MAKE YOUR ORDER WORK FOR YOU
~ For SMALL (lightweight, 1-2 item orders)
{It has been my experience that the lighter the padded envelope, the more chance for it to get lost in the cracks during shipment. Though it is a rare occurrence; I always recommend making it worth your while by placing an order of $30.00+ value.
This benefits you because:
* you can use coupon code BISTRO
* you will have insurance on your package with no extra cost (incase of damages or theft)
* you can take take full advantage of our FLAT RATE DOMESTIC shipping
* & have better odds that your package will make it to you safely.

We comply with all Import/Export laws, when declaring the value for customs.
~ DELIVERY - Shipping times are an estimate provided to us by our shipping provider - If your package does not arrive in a timely manner, check with your local customs and/or post office; your package is considered proprietary information and law prohibits us to call your customs office - However we are happy to assist you should you need help.

If the buyer should refuse to sign the affidavit, U- Pic (our provider) may not let us continue with the insurance claim process. Failure to do so could result in denial of the claim.

REIMBERSMENT:
~ It is our goal to fully reimburse you for undelivered, or (Insured) stolen or damaged packages & your patience and cooperation is appreciated.
~ We require (from the date of mailing) 21 BUSINESS DAYS for Domestic orders, & 45 BUSINESS DAYS for International orders, before we can make the claim for a lost or damaged package.
