About Bowerbirdsjewelry

Sales 10,790
On Etsy since 2014

All bowerbirds spend their lives either making or choosing beauty, so I named my business after them.

Czech beads: Beads that glow under UV light. The inner light in opaline glass. Picasso finish. Sumptuous true color glass beads. Floral and geometric beads.

This shop, Bowerbirdsjewelry, is where I sell the beads that I have grown to love the most, Czech pressed glass beads. Back in 1990, after the 'velvet revolution' in Czech Republic when vintage glass beads started appearing in US gem shows, I bought what I could and made jewelry. Some of the beads back then were weird: consider a capri blue glass Brazil nut, clearly made from a cast of a real Brazil nut probably late at night in the factory and under the influence of excellent beer.

Eventually the original 1930s beads disappeared from view; I never saw them at shows. When the Czech beadmaking industry came out with new beads, I was thrilled, and I feel the same way now. Welcome to my shop!

Returns and exchange details
I refund the cost of any product if it isn't satisfactory.

Convo (contact) me with any concerns within 7 days of receiving your order if you are dissatisfied for any reason. I allow returns, if notified as above, up to two weeks after shipping domestic orders, and for up to 5 weeks after shipping international orders. Mail returns to: Bowerbirds, P O Box 271688, Houston, TX 77277.

All items purchased from me and sent back for a refund to you must be accounted for and should be in the original condition as received.

I do not normally refund shipping costs, because by the time I am asked for a refund, that money has gone to the shipper (USPS) and not to me. I refund shipping costs only when necessary to make right an obvious error I have made, such as having sent the wrong item to you. If the laws of your country demand more, I will comply, but reserve the right to monitor transactions with and cease to do business with your country. Thank you for understanding.
