🚚 DOMESTIC SHIPPING: $4.65 ships everything * FLAT RATE DOMESTIC SHIPPING * (First class mail)
**** FREE SHIPPING at $50 items subtotal

Orders less than $250.00 can upgrade to add shipping Insurance for $1.05 extra. Any shipping issues can be resolved via Etsys claims service through Purchase protection Etsy policy.

Some packages shipped USPS may track as arriving late from time to time, due to added volume of shipments sent through the US Postal Service. Priority shipping upgrade is also available at checkout if needed.

✈️ INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING:
International shipments can be especially delayed due to COVID-19. In rare instances it can take up to 60 days to receive an International order shipped through (USPS / Globegestics) First Class International shipping services for small padded envelope shipments. Shipping Carrier upgrades are available in the cart for faster delivery service with full tracking through Fed Ex /UPS. We will refund any shipping overages of $5.00 or more charged for an International shipment upgrade.

📦 PACKAGING:
Please write a quick order note if you prefer each lot packaged separately by bead amount.
** For example: 3 x (5 grams) Jet O beads ~ each packaged in individual 5 gram bags.*** (In an effort to cut down on plastic bag usage, I often package the same item together in one bag. Each individual line item will be packaged separately with labels to keep the different beads organized. Everything will be bubble wrapped well and shipped in a padded envelope or box for larger orders.)

🚐 DELIVERY:
Please note delivery quotes are estimates & USPS is sometimes backed up with more volume of shipments than usual. In these instances packages could arrive outside of the estimated window. It is always good to give 1-2 days buffer from the Etsy estimated delivery incase of a delayed shipment.

About BeadBistroCrafts

On Etsy since 2014

NEW Design Inspirations with some of our NEW GLASS BEADS!

After running a brick & mortar bead shop with my mom I decided to branch out & start selling some of my favorite beads & supplies on Etsy. There are so many great selections of Czech beads, Crystal beads, metal components & much more here on my Etsy page! I also participate in a handful of Bead Shows, where I sell an even greater variety of Czech glass beads.

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 bead innovations.

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

Frequently asked questions

How many beads are in 10g / 20g?

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 general approximations.

20 grams of SUPERDUOS - there are approximately 250 - 264 beads

10 grams of SUPERDUOS - there are approximately 125 - 132 beads

10 grams of MINIDUOS - there are approximately 193 - 223 beads

Will the bead LOOK like the IMAGE shown?

YES, as much as possible. We do our best to make images as true to color & quality as possible. However, colors & finishes may shift slightly for the following reasons:

LIGHTING can make the color appear darker or lighter/brighter. Our photography is often done in a bright box with LED lights (meant to imitate natural day light). The color may look slightly different indoors or in lower lighting conditions.

COMPUTER MONITOR settings, can cause hue & color to shift slightly from original image.

PRODUCTION LOTS - with 'Cottage Industry' production, Czech glass bead finishes & glass rod material can be slightly different when new production is made. ** Changes to previous colors are within the item details.

Do 2-hole Czech beads get CLOGGED holes?

You may find this in a few beads per pack. Clogged holes do occasionally occur in pressed 2-hole Czech glass beads. This is not a defective package of beads. The Cottage Industry bead pressing process does yield occasional beads with defective holes that can slip through during production.

The glass is molten and pressed with rods between to form the shape & holes. After cleaning/polishing, beads are then finished. The entire process for one batch of beads, start to finish, can take upwards to 1-3 weeks. You may find occasionally that one of the holes is clogged.

Please check all of the holes as you are stringing each bead. Checking the holes as you go is common practice among 2-hole beaders & makes for happier beading.

Why are some beads more EXPENSIVE than others?

Czech glass beads are made of a base glass & sometimes one or two glass finishes applied to the base. Cutting or fire polishing processes for certain bead styles can also affect pricing.

* The price depends on the base glass (raw material), + the elements/chemicals needed to assist in the finishing process, & any specialty polishing/cutting processes there after.
~ For example some pink glass rods need a certain amount of Gold to achieve the hue of pink within the glass.

To the best of my knowledge I will inform you about which beads are solid glass colors & which finishes are on these beads in the details of each item.

Some Czech beads have finishes?

Since certain colors or types of glass are difficult or expensive to produce Czech glass beads are often finished to achieve new looks. Glass finishing processes took hold in a time when the era of costume jewelry began (around the 20’s). Czech glass bead makers have been expanding upon these finishes ever since.

*** It is important to note that abrasives & chemicals in perfumes & lotions can cause these finishes to deteriorate quicker. Keep your seed beaded jewelry separate from other jewelry & don’t wear these pieces at times when you may cause damage to these finishes.

To the best of my knowledge I inform you about which beads are solid glass colors & which finishes are on these beads in the details of each item.

What is in a COLOR NAME? (Czech beads)

The name represents the glass + finish.
---- ei: Jet RED LUSTER

Jet - is referring to the base glass color.
RED LUSTER - refers to the finish. **

** The finish will often change the hue and appearance of base glass.
The color you think of when you hear the name, may not represent the actual color of the bead. ei: Jet RED LUSTER is not actually red at all. It is a metallic Green tone.

Distributor names may be used for consistency. The true color of the bead is usually best represented by the images of the beads. I try to represent the colors and textures of the glass as true to life as possible. Item details will inform if finish/color changes from a previous batch, & may describe color details beyond the name.

I always recommend having 2 days buffer incase of a delayed arrival in tracking.
