This is stunning - arrived very quickly and carefully packed. I meant to review it as soon as I was able - one of the few things that bug me about Etsy - if I receive something I should be able to review it then, and not have to wait. This is a super piece and my friend will love it (not due to give it to her for a while) - so THANK YOU and so sorry not to have reviewed before...just ordering something else from Etsy and realised. Apologies. Super service, gorgeous piece and speedy - in other words perfect. Thank you.

Passing time pleasantly...

From the moment I made my first pair of earrings I was hooked, my love affair with beads had begun.

I have a passion for artisan made lampwork glass beads and spend countless hours searching for just the right ones. I love the depth of colour, the mysterious swirls and intricate patterns and I’m truly awed by the skill of the glass artists.

I also love freshwater pearls and semi precious gemstones and to be able to combine all of these beads in my designs is a great delight to me.

My focus is on quality. I enjoy making each and every piece and want my buyers to feel they have a unique item that will become a cherished favourite to be worn again and again. Most of my designs are one of a kind, but no two pieces will be exactly the same.

The dictionary defines 'Beguiled' as ‘to amuse, charm or delight’, ‘to pass time pleasantly’, so there you have it, I’m truly beguiled by the bead.

Payment is to be made at the time of purchase via Paypal. You do not need a Paypal account to use this method.
I aim to send orders out with 48 hours, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, but usually manage next day.
I will send you a notification when your item has shipped - this will go to the email address that you signed up to Etsy with.

All items are shipped from the UK

The ESTIMATED delivery times from dispatch are:

• UK - First Class post 1 - 3 business days.
• US/Canada/Australia - International Standard - 6 - 15 business days. 
• Europe - International Standard - 4 - 10 business days

These times are only a guideline and depending on the Customs of your particular country could take longer.

The standard shipping charge does not include tracking but you can upgrade to 1st Class Signed for or International Tracked and Signed For. Upgrade available at checkout.

PLEASE NOTE : Although I always obtain Proof of Posting Standard Airmail is not trackable and does not guarantee delivery. I do not accept liability for items lost in the mail and as most of my designs are one of a kind I will not be able to re-create them. With this in mind please consider upgrading your shipping method.

All international packages (excluding EU countries) have a customs declaration. The customer is solely responsible for any import duties/taxes/custom fees which may be incurred.
Refunds and Exchanges
If you are not happy with your purchase please contact me as soon as possible rather than leave negative feedback.

Please notify me within 48 hours of receipt of the faulty or damaged item and return this to me together with the delivery note and original packaging, if possible, within 14 days from receipt in order to receive a refund which will include the postage to return the item. Digital photgraphic evidence of damage may be acceptable in certain circumstances.

Return the item, unused and unworn, together with the delivery note, original packaging, if possible, and in the original condition within 14 working days. I will process a refund for the cost of the item within 14 days of receipt of the item. Under these circumstances, the BUYER is responsible for return postage costs.

Unless the item is faulty or damaged the buyer is responsible for return shipping costs. If the item is not returned in its original condition, the buyer is responsible for any loss in value. I reserve the right to deduct a re-stocking fee for earrings, as I will have to replace the earwires on their return for hygiene purposes.

Refunds will be made through Paypal on receipt of returns.

Unless they arrive damaged or defective, I cannot accept returns for custom or personalised orders

Please consider a trackable delivery method as you will be responsible for the returned items until they reach me.
Additional policies and FAQs
Privacy Policy - I will only use your shipping and billing address, and contact information to communicate with you about your order and to fulfil you order.

Many items are photographed close up with a macro lens to show detail and this can give the impression an item is larger than it actually is. To ensure the item meets with your requirements please read the details relating to bead size and measurement.
I believe the images show an accurate representation of each item. Please, however, bear in mind that individual monitors may display variations in colour.

I am happy to reserve items for up to 2 weeks. Please contact me to arrange this.

Items are wrapped in tissue and securely packaged. Complimentary gift wrap is included.

I am happy to discuss minor alterations to any piece but in some cases alterations may not be possible.
