About

Patience is a virtue...

The comment I most hear when people see my work up close? "You must have an awful lot of patience!"
Well, yes, generally I do, and I like to think I have a good eye for detail. I enjoy the structure of the design process in beading, often wrapped up in patterns and pixels, and I enjoy the order and rhythm of sewing the tiny individual beads to create unique and beautiful pieces.

My inner magpie also appreciates the sparkle from silver-lined beads and metallics!

Each beaded item takes at least 2-3 hours' work to complete, depending on the complexity of the shape and the number of beads used. On average, over 200 tiny seed beads (each about 2mm in diameter) go into each item; each bead is individually hand-sewn to complete the desired shape.

All of my items are meticulously created. Due to the hand-made nature of my work, each item will be a little unique.

I value my customers and want to be sure you are happy. I offer a high level of customer service - please try DewCatDesigns and let me show you!

    My creative side is the perfect relaxing antidote to my day job. Normally a seasoned cross-stitcher, a recent chance encounter with beading at a local craft fair instantly appealed to my love of all things cute and sparkly, so I'm currently exploring projects to combine the two. I've got a definite preference for silver-lined beads which catch the light beautifully, and appeal to my inner magpie!

Welcome! Please feel free to browse, and thank you for looking!

Although a seasoned cross-stitcher, a chance encounter with beading at a local craft fair instantly appealed to my love of all things cute, sparkly and bead-related, and this is the result!

Payment
Full payment is required before shipping.
PayPal is my preferred method of payment - you can use debit and credit cards through PayPal without needing an account.
Shipping
Items will be shipped in the US by USPS first class post within the stated processing deadline. Custom orders may take a little longer, but I will contact you to confirm time-frames. Please ensure your shipping address is correct before placing your order. If you would like me to ship to another address, please mention it in the "message to seller" box when paying.

Expedited shipping can be provided on request - please just ask.

Items shipped to the UK are generally posted via USPS First Class Mail International, which should take 10-14 days to arrive, but unfortunately actual shipment times are out of my control, and packages can occasionally be held up in customs.

If you would like an item to be shipped anywhere other than the US mainland or the UK, you may wish to contact me for an accurate shipping quote before placing an order. Customers are responsible for any and all customs charges, taxes and additional postage fees that may be applied.
Refunds and Exchanges
All my items are made with great care, and are packed equally carefully. I want all my customers to be delighted with their purchase. If, for any reason, you are not satisfied, please contact me within five days of receipt, and I'll do my best to work with you to resolve the problem.

Please note, refunds and exchanges will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

If you wish to return an item, please obtain proof of posting, and please advise me. Please return within 7 days of receipt. I will arrange a full refund of your purchase once the item arrives back with me, but I cannot refund the postage for the return. Any item returned must be unused and in its original condition.

Please note that, for hygiene reasons, earrings cannot be returned.

Although packages generally arrive much sooner, I will allow the post office up to 2 weeks for domestic deliveries and up to 5 weeks for international deliveries before resending or refunding for non-delivery.
Additional policies and FAQs
All pieces are created by hand, and as such, no two items will be identical. Please allow for slight variances - it makes your chosen product unique!

Items are generally wrapped in lovely packaging (eg tissue paper and ribbon, organza bag or kraft box), and shipped in a bubble mailer. If you would like an item specially gift-wrapped with a gift tag, please let me know.

My pieces are made with tiny seed beads, and therefore are not suitable for young children as they could present a choking hazard.

Custom orders are welcomed - if you'd like an existing design in a different colour, please convo me. Or perhaps a magnet instead of a keyring, or a ribbon instead of paperclip. Or if you have an idea for something completely new, please contact me and I'd love to work with you to create a treasure you'll love!
