Announcement    Free US first class shipping on orders $35 and over!

Handcrafted beaded and embroidered items including unique bookmarks, tassel purse charms, and ornaments.

MOST of my items are ready to ship, one of a kind items, created by me. No need to wait for them to be made!

My processing times for made to order items varies but these are usually completed within a few days. Processing is the time it takes me to make your item, given if there's a queue of items before your order and if it falls on a day I do not work (mainly weekends). Shipping time is separate from this.

Etsy sometimes gives unrealistic arrival dates. This does not come from the seller. If you need something quickly please message before purchase to see if I can accommodate your needs! I cannot guarantee any arrival dates!

Need a custom order? I will work hard to try and fulfill your needs! Convo me or click the custom order button on my main page just below the categories. There are restrictions on some types of items for custom orders. This varies by item.

I've been selling my beaded creations since 2004 in various online venues. Buy with confidence that you'll be well taken care of! I wasn't very active on etsy until 2017, having only 30 sales until May, 2017. But if you are interested you can see my profile of the same seller name on ebay for my reviews with over 2000 successful sales!

I sell a variety of items including beaded bookmarks (which have glass, stone, lucite, vintage and handmade components), purse tassels, felt flower book bands, unique ornaments and lately some embroidery items. The variety you'll find in my bookmarks definitely make them one of a kind! I have a huge supply of beads, including over 400 in seed bead colors alone!

I'm blessed with the best customers! I hope you can be one of them!

About CandysBookThongs

Sales 920
On Etsy since 2007

Beading became my passion.

I began my shop online in 2004 after getting an idea for a lovely little beaded bookmark, a book thong, since the beaded area fits in the crack of the book! I soon branched out to many other beaded items, and have now added keychain/purse tassels and unique beaded ornaments to my store, as well as felt flower book bands!

Most of my history of selling has been on ebay, not etsy. But in May, 2017 I've devoted myself to etsy selling, gaining all but 30 of my sales since then.

I've slowly built up my bead and jewelry collection over time to take up one entire room in our home! Chain, findings, sterling silver beads, Swarovski elements, lampwork beads galore, over 400 varieties of seed beads, stone beads by the hundreds...

Frequently asked questions
Can you create something just for me?

Short answer: Yes! Longer answer: depending on your wants I'm sure we can work together to make something great! I find this works best when you give me ideas and allow me to create. I do reserve the right to limit changes based on cost.

I'm buying a gift. Do you offer gift wrap?

Yes! My items are wrapped in tissue and tied with twine.

What are the metal components you use made of?

Unless otherwise stated, my items are generally plated.

Do you make your lampwork beads/pendants/polymer clay beads?

I don't make the lampwork beads, no. I do buy from etsy sellers that are independent artisans who create beautiful beads!

I do make my picture tile pendants! While I don't generally create the images, that's just too much time for me to spare, I do try to coordinate what's popular with what appeals to me, and mesh with color and charms, etc. I do my best to create items that are NOT the intellectual property of others who have not given me permission to use. This is why you won't find any licensed products like Disney, Nickelodeon, etc., in my store.

I used to make many of my polymer clay beads, but don't anymore. Again, not enough time! I do purchase from etsy creators!

What is stabilized turquoise in your items?

Stabilized turquoise:

Most turquoise sold for use in jewelry-making is stabilized. There are three main stabilization treatments currently applied to turquoise stones:

Paraffin polish
Polyresin polish
Impregnation of a colorless bonding agent--commonly plastic--for basic stabilization. This stabilization increases the durability, hardness, chemical resistance and uniform appearance of the turquoise. Stabilization frequently darkens the color and gives the stone a glossy appearance--a handy way to identify basic stabilized turquoise.

Ethical or Eco Friendly Natural Beads

I try my best to provide my customers with components they would be content wearing, not just happy with the look. I do use some bone, horn and wood beads. These beads are all sourced humanely, ethically or eco friendly. For example some are domestic animal products, while others are sourced from animals dying a natural death and to honor the animal all the parts are used, and in turn give workers in other countries a fair living wage (fair trade). No animal product I use is from an endangered animal nor any wood from an endangered tree.
