Announcement   No matter what season it is, it's always fun to perk up your wardrobe. Could you use a pair of colorful earrings, a pretty bracelet, a new necklace to jazz up a favorite outfit, or to surprise someone you love? Something handmade and unique.....

There's lots to choose from in my shop and if you see something you like, but it needs to be in a different color or material, or on clips instead of earwires, message me and I'll see what I can do. I'll even gift wrap your purchases for a small fee, to save you time, if you ask me. Message me for details.

Purchases are normally shipped USPS priority, which includes insurance and tracking information. Customers ordering from outside the USA will need to contact me for shipping rates, if available; international customs fees are the customer's responsibility. Other forms of shipping may be available for an additional fee, and local customers can pick their purchases up if they want to save on postage. Again, email me for details.

Also, a 20% restocking fee will be deducted from a refund if any items are returned without prior communication and/or if your package is returned undelivered or refused.

My jewelry is handmade and almost all of my designs are one of a kind. Some come in different colors or metals, too, and the hook-style earrings can include a pair of plastic ear nuts, to help keep the wires in your ears, if you want (message me). I can also make multiple copies of some designs, for bridesmaid gifts or other events.

Custom work is available, if you have something you want matched. I also do repair work/revamping of existing pieces (currently for local customers only). Send me a message, and let's see what I can create for you!

The vintage cookbooks I used to carry have been moved to my new vintage, collectibles, and craft shop, Faye's Fabulous Finds, named after my late mother, a Florida flea market dealer, at http://www.etsy.com/shop/FayesFabulousFinds. Come on over - I'll be listing all of the overflow of my mom's years of collecting vintage costume jewelry, cookbooks, Wedgwood china, iron Amish figurines, and more, plus other things I run across that Mom would have liked! Check back often and message me if you're looking for something in particular.

It's time for some fun - rock on!

    I've been making & selling jewelry since I was a kid, when pipe cleaner and foil rings were the rage and sold for 25 cents. I took a break for awhile, until a wireworking class at a local college reinspired me. I hope you like my work!

Hi, welcome to Betty's Bead Soup! For as long as I can remember, I've loved jewelry and making things.

In elementary school, I supplemented my allowance by selling beaded elastic bracelets and rings made from pipe cleaners and aluminum foil. As I got older, I stopped making my own jewelry and for a long time, everything I wore was storebought. Then, a few years ago, I decided to take a class on making wire jewelry. The results were amazing. I was a jewelry-maker again! (My favorite things to make and wear? Earrings, the bigger the better. My motto is, if earrings don't double as Christmas ornaments or fishing lures, why bother?)

Gradually, I started making things to sell to my friends and then to their friends, sold stuff on consignment and through an artist coop and even set up a Facebook page with photos of my work for out-of-town friends to enjoy. Then, I discovered Etsy and the rest was (or will be) history. I love making jewelry that 's fun to wear and that adds the perfect finishing touch to someone's look.

Come on in and see what's new!

Accepted payment methods

Payment
PayPal is my preferred method of payment; you must have a verified Etsy address and your PayPal and Etsy "ship to" addresses must match. Payment must be made before shipment. A down payment is required for custom work, with the remainder due before shipping. The down payment will not be refunded if the order is cancelled after work has begun.
Shipping
Regular orders are shipped within 7-10 business days by USPS priority mail, which at present costs $5.80. I will add more items to your first sale for a small additional shipping fee (see item for specific cost). Custom work may take longer; ask for details. International sales may be possible, if you contact me for more details. Customers are responsible for all tariffs, taxes, duties, and customs charges that may be incurred. Insurance and delivery confirmation are available for an additional charge.
Refunds and Exchanges
No refunds or exchanges. If an item arrives damaged or broken, contact me within 7 days.
Additional policies and FAQs
My designs are handmade, so slight variations from piece to piece should be expected. Most of them are one-of-a-kind, so if you see something you like, order it - it probably won't be back!

My designs normally do not include precious metals; custom work can include whatever you need. Many earring designs can be switched from pierced to clip, if needed. I use surgical steel earwires on most of my earrings, but if you need a special type earwire, let me know and I'll rry to accomodate you. (There may be an additional charge.) Regardless, I can't guarantee how wearers will react to any materials I may use.

I love to do custom work and repairs; contact me and let's discuss it. DO NOT send anything unless I have asked for it.
