Announcement   "Infinite Sparkle .... Forever Captured"

Happy Summer! THANK YOU so much for all of you whso have kept me so busy these past months while I watched my sales go up, up, up - you know who you are! I am currently busy creating/posting new pieces for Summer 2013, but my time is very limited, so it will be posted in bits and pieces. If there's something you would like, just convo me and we'll talk about it!

I craft simply everything in crystal jewelry & crystal accessories... Swarovski and other fine crystal earrings, crystal pendants, crystal necklaces,crystal bracelets and exceptional crystal gifts ... original designs, handcrafted with love in Michigan! From the first design idea to the last exquisite packaging detail, each piece I make is lavished with love and meticulous care. My main focus, however, besides my jewelry designs, is my customers. What you need and what you want is of paramount importance to me, and my goal is to provide simply the best customer service you will EVER encounter. You might want to glance at my customer feedback to get an idea of how I reach that goal with each order. You see, money is not my primary motivator - my shop simply serves as an outlet for my creative design ideas and as a means to communicate with and satisfy my customers, hopefully beyond expectations. You can expect business and personal integrity, along with transparency, respect, and for your order to be filled and dispatched to you with as much speed as is possible for each and every order. I stand behind my products and expect my customers to communicate with me if they encounter anything that is not satisfactory with their order so I can find a way to fix it. Good communication is the key to a successful relationship, be it business or personal. The money that does come in from my business simply goes for more supplies so I can continue designing more jewelry and making people happy!

Here is a recent feedback comment from San Francisco: "Truly one of a kind! Very lovely, indeed. Becky is an extraordinary seller. I would highly recommend her to anyone. I've had the best experience with her, hands down! She was so willing to work with me and her enthusiasm made it an absolute joy to work with. She provided me full transparency and frequent updates. She is very artistic and even her packaging is beautiful. I only wish I had found her sooner! Don't miss the opportunity to work with her." This is not a friend or relative - simply a customer who has had another good experience with my shop.

All purchases are beautifully packaged and beribboned. Most orders placed will normally be shipped out within 1 - 3 days {sometimes sooner, if it's a "ready to ship" item} (these guidelines do NOT include custom orders). If you have a special need, let's talk about it. If you need your order by a certain date, please contact me for shipping arrangements {$3.00 extra to upgrade to Priority Mail within the continental US only}. Postage to Canada, Europe, and "Everywhere Else" I ship to has unfortunately gotten more expensive, so my shipping rates had to be increased somewhat. However, my "ship with" prices have remained the same.

FREE POSTAL SHIPPING ON ALL ITEMS IN THE CONTINENTAL U.S. - NO COUPON NEEDED! Expedited shipping (for other than regular postal mail) is available - please ask!!

Please take your time going through my selection of crystal earrings, crystal bracelets, crystal necklaces, and crystal pendants.

In this collection, the gold, silver, and copper ear wires provide an excellent variety, which look wonderful with the charms. And this was a great deal to boot!

This pendant is flawless! I absolutely love the smokiness with the subtle blues and browns that dance with changes in lighting and angles. It goes very well with your neck wire which gives it a contemporary look.

These are so sparkly, and they're just the right size with these rich, deep greens, teals, blues and yellows. Quite sophisticated!

About

I Became a Maniac Beader: How to Go Broke in One Easy Step

As any person who has a love for beads knows, it all starts with just one package of beads and some beading wire and maybe a few crimp beads. From there, beading takes over your life! I know, because it happened to me (I wonder if there is a support group for people who are overly fond of beads???) ....

The winters are long here in Michigan, so I needed to find something to do during those dark winter days. Being someone who likes to create beautiful things, coupled with a love of crystal in all its beautiful forms and a jewelry maven as well, it seemed natural to buy a few beads and start "making my own" or DIY, jewelry.

Soon, my front bedroom turned into a craft room instead. I started buying bead boxes because I had dozens, then hundreds, of different kinds of beads and all the gear that goes with them. Then, the amount of inventory started to pile up, and the money in my bank account started going down. Well, now what? From there it was but a short step to Etsy .. and now Etsy has become a way of life and my second job! It's the perfect outlet for my creativity and love of making people happy, along with my drive for the best customer service you will EVER encounter - I promise!

Fine crystal earrings, crystal necklaces, crystal pendants, and other crystal accessories. "Infinite sparkle ... forever captured"

Hello there, and welcome to West Michigan! Thank you for taking the time to visit my online shop, Crystals and Pearls of Michigan.

My name is Becky Gibson, and I am a passionate beader based out of Grand Rapids, Michigan. My jewelry line came about because I absolutely love beading with crystal, specifically Swarovski crystal and also their beautiful Crystal pearls. Most of my designs incorporate Swarovski materials, though I also use other types of crystals from time to time. Please be assured, however, that if something is labeled as Swarovski, that's exactly what it is. I will always label my creations accurately. I try to take detailed photographs and include sizes, materials, colors, and anything else I think would be of interest to you. However, if you have any question at all about something, please convo/email me - I will be happy to answer any questions at all about any item I have made. I can send sample crystals, take more photographs if there is something you would like to see in greater detail, and take more measurements if those are crucial to your decision. I want you to have all your questions answered before you make that buying decision - that way there are no surprises for you or for me! No detail is too small to ask about - it may be that one detail that makes your decision for you.

Please stroll though my shop and take your time. Each piece is intricately detailed, and worthy of more than just a passing look. If you don't see something that speaks to you, let me know what does and we'll work together on getting it for you.

Please note: all items come from a smoke-free home. My cat and bird are not allowed to help me do my craft work, though they beg periodically. If you would like some kitty fuzz or bird feathers with your order, please convo me in the "Notes" section at checkout. There will be no charge for these extra items, and shipping is still complimentary in the continental United States, as I know there are those of you out there that would consider these items to be "supplies" for your crafting .... ;)

Payment
Crystals and Pearls Michigan currently accepts Paypal and most major credit cards. Anyone can pay through Paypal without registering/signing up for Paypal, just use your credit card. Personal checks, "e-checks" and money orders will be accepted, but items will be shipped only after check or money order has cleared the bank and posted to my account. Depending on what country you are in, it can take anywhere from to 5 to as long as 9 business days for the check to clear, so please bear this in mind if you have a certain date that you need your purchase by. If you need help paying through Paypal, please let me know and I will assist you. It's normally very fast and easy, but I am always glad to help.

I expect and appreciate your prompt payment. Payment is considered due at the time you purchase your item(s). Items that are left unpaid after 48 hours will be considered abandoned - that means it is automatically relisted for sale to the public, and your order is canceled. If you need extra time to pay for an item due to special circumstances, please let me know and we'll work something out.

Custom orders: 50% of the total cost of the order will be due and payable before any materials are ordered or work is begun on your order. The balance is due the day before shipment, and I will make sure to communicate when you can expect shipment to take place.
Shipping
Unless noted otherwise, shipping will be within 48 hours of your completed payment. Standard shipping with delivery confirmation within the continental United States is at no charge to you, unless you need special or expedited services, which are covered below. All purchases are shipped in a lovely organza travel & storage pouch, wrapped in purple tissue and packed into a padded mailer for safe shipping to you. Gift boxes are not provided for international shipments, due to the expense of shipping them, but please be assured that your purchase will be beautifully and appropriately packaged without a box. . All purchases within the United States will be shipped USPS First Class Mail with Delivery Confirmation for tracking. I will email you your tracking number as soon as it is generated, which is when your shipping label is printed out. PLEASE BE SURE to verify your address when checking out to avoid shipping delays. Be aware that if your package is not delivered because of an incorrect address, the odds are rather slim that that package will get back to me. If it does, I will re-ship to your corrected address at your expense. It's really just easier for everyone to make sure your address is current and correct, including any International Shipping Country codes. The Post Office (at least mine) will not ship without these codes on the package.

Estimated delivery times are as follows: for First Class mail within the United States, typically 3 - 5 business days. If you choose to upgrade to Priority Mail, delivery is usually 2 - 3 business days. International USPS mail, using First Class International mail, can take up to six weeks to arrive, unless you choose to upgrade to First Class International Priority Mail, which is extremely expensive. However, the upside to First Class International Priority mail is that it provides us with a tracking number. Regular First Class International mail does NOT provide a tracking number. I can give you a Customs Form number that will enable you to track your package within the United States, but once it has left our borders you will not be able to trace it. Please be aware that the time frames quoted above are only estimates, and do not include the 48 hour window for me to prepare your purchase for shipment.

If you have a special need for faster shipping, let me know and I will do all I can to make that happen, however, as you would expect, there will be a charge within the continental United States for expedited shipping, and it will be much more expensive for expedited service to Canada and other countries I ship to. I offer free USPS First Class with Delivery Confirmation when shipping within the continental United States, and shipping at the fees posted to Canada and Everywhere Else, as we put it on Etsy. This means I do ship internationally to verified Paypal addresses. Although I have posted rates for shipping to countries outside the United States and Canada, please ask me for an estimate of shipping to your country before purchasing ANY item - there are several countries that I cannot ship to and yours may be one of them. China, Malaysia, Italy, Israel, Africa and certain other countries, depending on the postal situation or other factors, are all places I am unable to ship to. Please be aware of this before purchasing any merchandise through my shop.

If you receive a shipment from me that is obviously damaged when it arrives, please get in touch with me immediately. Please retain the entire package, including all shipping materials, paperwork, packaging, etc.. I will send you a prepaid shipping envelope so that you can return everything to me at no cost to you, so that I can file a claim with the Postal Service. Once I have received the return package, we will decide together whether replacement (when possible) or store credit will be appropriate for your situation. I want you to be pleased with your experience with Crystals and Pearls of Michigan, even if something is damaged in transit to you. I will do everything I can to make it right. Shipping insurance will be provided, at my cost, for any purchase that exceeds $50 USD, or in other cases as I deem necessary.

Please note: If your country imposes customs, tariffs, taxes, or fees on items you purchase, you, the buyer, are responsible for paying them. These costs are not included in either the purchase or the shipping price. Crystals and Pearls will not specify any purchase as a "gift" on customs forms for any reason, or alter the true cost of any purchased item on a customs form. Crystals and Pearls is not responsible for any of the above fees, or for covering any additional fees or shipping associated with inaccurate or incomplete addresses received from purchasers. Please make sure your shipping address is the same as your Paypal address as I only ship to verified Paypal addresses.
Refunds and Exchanges
Refunds and exchanges: I am very proud of my work, and I very much want you to be happy with your purchase. I will accept returns in their original condition return postmarked within 10 days of receipt. As the purchaser, return shipping costs, secure packaging, and insurance will be your responsibility, unless there are special circumstances that dictate otherwise. No refund of any kind will be processed until the original piece is back in my possession in the same condition you received it in. Please let me know why you are returning the item and we will work it out together. No refunds or returns will be given for any item that is shipped internationally. Shipping on returns is not refunded.

I do offer repairs if something I made fails to wear as you would reasonably expect it to, and if you need to have something altered, such as a necklace or bracelet lengthened or shortened, please allow extra time to shipping if an item is being altered. I will normally give you an estimate of when an altered item should ship. Also, if you don't see what you want in the color you want, let me know and I will work with you to get you what you are looking for, if it is possible to do so. Please Note: Jewelry is not to be worn while sleeping, swimming, exercising, bathing, or any other activity that might put undue strain on the piece. Jewelry with obvious signs of misuse will incur charges for repair, depending on the severity of the damage! Jewelry should be kept out of the hands and mouths of children or anyone else who does not understand what jewelry is used for.

No reproduction of any part of this website may be sold or distributed for commercial gain, nor may it be modified or incorporated into any others' work, publication, or website. All designs are products of my own imagination, and as such are my property and not for the use of others for commercial gain.

At this time, I do not have the ability to offer custom orders, simply because designing jewelry is such a personal thing for me - I find that trying to interpret other people's ideas to be next to impossible. All of my designs are products of my own imagination, and I very seldom make the same design twice. As I said, I want you to be happy with your purchase and I also want you as a repeat customer. 100% positive feedback is my goal for Crystals and Pearls of Michigan, so don't be afraid to speak up.

Please be aware: Fine crystal jewelry is not meant for anyone under the age of 14. As with any jewelry, it contains small parts that choldren should not put in their mouths. This is leaded crystal glass, and is not suitable for oral contact. If dropped on a hard surface, it may shatter, as glass will do. Please take steps to remove and dispose of all broken pieces of crystal immediately upon breakage of any kind. I strive for safety in my products, but, as jewelry, my products should be kept out of the hands of small children or anyone who does not comprehend the proper use of jewelry of any/all kinds.

Please do not shower, swim, exercise, or sleep with my pieces on, as it is, being fine crystal, somewhat fragile. Please treat it with the care that you would use with your fine crystal glassware, and you should be able to use your Crystals and Pearls of Michigan item for a very long time.

Every purchase will arrive safely and securely packed, nestled in a beautiful organza bag with ribbon ties. I encourage you to use these organza bags to store your Crystals and Pearls of Michigan jewelry, as that is the best way to keep them as beautiful as the day you received them. Please see my Shop Announcement for the care of fine crystal jewelry. In addition, gift boxes are available upon request . Please note that I use attractive, recycled materials such as gift boxes whenever/wherever possible, except for gift wrapping. Gift wrapping is done with all new materials.

Again, thank you for taking the time to visit my store. Your visit, and any feedback that you might care to offer, mean a lot to me.
