Returning to my beloved geometric shapes for this beaded bead - this time for a present though and it won't be available in the shop. There's a lot more like it available though or you could contact me about a custom order ...

About

Mad about beads and proud of it ...

I consider it most likely that you came here from my shop and wanted to know more details about me and what I do. So you have already seen that I design and make pieces of beadwork - this is how it started.

My fascination for these sometimes quite annoying little pieces of glass started when I stayed at home after having my son in 2007. I went into a craft shop, hoping to find something to do with my hands and time. They had seed beads and some free instructions to make a beadwoven necklace. People that know me can confirm that I usually jump right in with both feet and my way of thinking is "How hard can it be?", so I took the instruction leaflet and bought the needed beads ...

Since then I have bought many more beads, hoarded many more jewellery findings and collected all sorts of objects that seem interesting and worth keeping, until I have worked out how to incorporate them into my beadwork.

Often the inspiration for new pieces comes straight from the colour or shape of these objects. On other occasions it is colours I see all around me and particularly the combinations of colours that trigger my imagination. Everything is down to shape and colour with me and I try to keep the lines clear, but always with an interesting twist.

This twist results often from the combination of techniques that I use. Bead crochet ropes with geometric beadwoven clasps or pendants made of upcycled metal objects - the bead crochet is a reoccurring theme in my shop, as it is a technique I love and never get tired of using.

Well, I hope you enjoyed this little excursion into the backstage area and please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any other questions regarding my work.

Welcome to my little shop with handmade bead jewellery.

Every piece is made with love and effort, just as if it was for myself. That is actually how most items come about - as pieces I would like to wear. But I can't wear everything I make and that is why I started selling.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The jewellery I make is very wearable and fit for everyday use.
To make sure you can enjoy it for a very long time there are just a few things you should know about caring for the beadwork.

Storage
Store this piece in the gift box in comes in, a soft cloth bag, or wrapped in a soft cloth. This will prevent it from becoming tangled in other pieces of jewellery, which could possibly cause beads to crack or chip and any exposed threads to weaken or break.

Avoid Contact with Water and Chemicals
Never allow contact with chemicals like cleaning products etc.
Try to avoid letting it come into contact with perfume, make-up, shampoo, soap and the like. When you get ready, your jewellery should be the last thing you put on.
Do not wear this jewellery in the shower or when swimming and avoid getting it wet.
All the above can weaken and damage the thread and the beads. It can also cause some beads that are coated or surface dyed to run, loose their colour or sparkle.

Avoid the Extremes
Avoid exposing this jewellery to intense heat, moisture and sunlight. All of these things can cause even the highest quality beads to fade, tarnish or maybe crack.
If you want to display your jewellery, make sure that it is out of direct sunlight.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Allergy advice:
We don't have dogs or cats, but a hamster calls our house home.
We are a smoke-free household.

As the colours are displayed depending on screen-settings and screen, they might vary slightly on the actual piece.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
I accept PayPal, Etsy's Direct Checkout and Etsy Gift Cards.

If you are a new buyer and would like some help to make your purchase, please see
http://www.etsy.com/help_guide_checkout.php for a detailed walkthrough for buying on Etsy.

Ready made items will be posted within 2-3 working days after full payment has been received/cleared. Custom orders will naturally take a bit longer.

International buyers please be aware that you may have to pay customs charges or import duty on your items when they arrive in your country. Please contact your local customs office to check if it applies to you as you are responsible for the payment of these charges.

Please note that Beadwork & Coe is not registered for VAT, prices therefore are not charged to include VAT.
Shipping
All items come in a gift box/organza bag (as stated in the individual listing) and with care instructions.
I try to recycle and reuse as much outer packaging as possible (padded envelopes etc.). Should you not wish to receive your item in such packaging - please let me know.

In the UK I use "1st Class Recorded Signed For" for pieces with a value of 20 GBP +, other items will be posted normal "1st Class" - all items are covered by sufficient insurance. This way your item should reach you within a couple of days from being posted. I will retain proof of postage.

Should you wish for special shipping arrangements, please contact me for prices.

Items posted to international addresses are sent by Royal Mail Airsure, if the value is above 20 GBP. This provides insurance, tracking and a delivery confirmation in most countries.
Below that value I use International Standard which is still insured, but not tracked and doesn't provide delivery confirmation.
In most instances, packages sent worldwide take around 5-14 days. I will retain proof of postage.
As all my items vary in size and value, I find it difficult to estimate the postage prices. If you were charged considerably more than I end up paying, the difference will be refunded.

--- Important ---
I will send to the address provided by Etsy. Please check it and make sure it is current - I don't take responsibility if it's wrong.

I'll let you know as soon as the item is on its way :)
Please allow 1 week within the UK and 3 weeks for international post to arrive. Should your item not have arrived by then, please contact me so I can start enquiries.
Refunds and Exchanges
Returns:
Please note that earrings are - for hygiene reasons - excluded from returns.

If it is a case of "I don't like it. / I have changed my mind." the item must be returned straight away (within 14 days of arrival) at your cost. It must be in the original packaging and must not be worn! You will get the refund (inc. the original P&P if applicable) once I have received the item.
It is advised that you obtain proof of postage and insurance from the Post Office (or overseas equivalent), so you can put in a claim should the item not arrive at my end. I can not be held responsible for returned goods lost on the way.
If you are returning goods from overseas (i.e outside of the EU) you MUST clearly mark the package as "RETURNED GOODS". Failure to do so will unfortunately mean that any tax/customs charges payable on arrival back here will be deducted from the refund.

I take great care when packing an item. Still, should a piece reach you damaged contact me straight away (with a picture of the damage where possible) and we get it sorted out.
Additional policies and FAQs
I am open to enquiries about custom-orders, but please make sure you allow time for pieces to be finished. I don't hold much stock of beads and might have to order certain colours/types myself.
Once the details are clear I'll set up a custom listing for you to purchase and send you the link. I start the work once the purchase is made and payment cleared. The payment might not be refundable - depending on the item and my chances of selling it otherwise - unless the item is faulty.
