A One-Woman Business, Offering Sustainably Sourced Beads, and Local-Artisan Supplies.

I strive to align with ALL living beings on our beautiful planet by ensuring - to the best of my ability - that EVERY item that I sell, or use to pack and ship, is as compassionately sourced as possible.
How did I do this?
1.) By switching to non-animal-generated products only, including glass, minerals, wood, and metals.
2.) By printing your receipt on TREE FREE paper - 100% plantation sugar cane fiber paper!
3.) By paper-packing a majority of my beads - 75,000+ U.S. sourced paper packs used since 2015.
4.) By responsibly recycling the plastics and styrofoam generated from my wholesale purchases.
5.) By totally eliminating use of bubble-wrap, switching to newspaper and recycled paper product for wrapping and natural string for tying.

I feel extremely fortunate that I am an "Etsian" - my shop - this spot, such a tiny "place of commerce" yet so much greater than the sum of its parts. What better way to balance out a life than immersing one's self in a favorite past time, imbuing it with every good thing that one can possibly devise or envision?
What is EthnicBeadShop about?
It is about one woman's ability to make a decent living selling responsibly sourced products.
It is about demonstrating that buying and selling responsibly CAN be profitable and IS a good idea.
It is about showing that REALLY good things are out there, acquired or made by great people earning an acceptable wage while creating those good things.

And...it is about touching you at this moment, letting you know that love fuels all things, providing each and every one of us with the energy to be happy, successful and capable of giving wholeheartedly to others without suffering personal depletion.

If you asked me now, whether it is possible to grow, and even THRIVE within a profound, personal experience, I'd answer without hesitation, "Yes...yes it is".

Contact me anytime - I'm looking forward to it!

Returns and exchange details
If you need to return an item, please contact me via convo, and ship your return, in its original condition and packaging, within 7 days of the item's delivery.
You are responsible for the return shipping fee.
I suggest insuring your package with tracking and delivery confirmation - lost items without tracking and items damaged during return transit are nonrefundable.
You will receive a full refund, not including original or return shipping, when item is received.

If your item arrives damaged, please contact me as soon as possible, providing a photo of damaged item(s) in your message.
You will be provided a full refund for the damaged item, which will include shipping if it was the only item in your order.

If you discover that you need to cancel your order, please do so right away - I pack and ship quickly, sometimes same-day!
If your order ships before I receive your cancellation request, simply mark "Return to Sender" on the outside of the package (DON'T open) and give it to your local postal service. They will ship it back to me, at no cost to you.
Once returned, you will receive a full refund for the item(s) not including original or return shipping.

If your package is lost in transit, you will receive a full refund, including original shipping, after the required insurance filing wait has been met: 21 days Domestic, 45 days International, and 60 days Italy, from the shipment date.
Please contact me if you believe that your order is lost. Your lost order is NONREFUNDABLE 90 days from shipment date (insurance claims can be filed no later than 90 days from the shipment date).

If, after you have been refunded, the lost/late package does arrive, simply mark "Return to Sender" on the outside of the package (DON'T open) and give it to your local postal service. They will ship it back to me, at no cost to you.

NOTE: Sadly, USPS does NOT offer a formal/written inquiry process for late/lost packages shipped FIRST CLASS INTERNATIONAL, which is the shipping method that I use, due to it's cost-effectiveness.
This means that I will be unable to assist your postal service in locating your package once it departs the U.S.

If your item is shipped to a wrong address (with incorrect address listed on Etsy), your purchase is non-refundable.
Go to: http://faq.usps.com/ and click the blue link "USPS Package Intercept - The Basics", located under the "Hot Topics" heading, to learn how to start a retrieval process.

If an item (within multiple item order) is missing upon arrival, and the item is in stock, it will be shipped to you ASAP. If the item is not in stock, you will receive a full refund for the missing item.

Although I will work with you regarding any concerns, most Special Orders are non- refundable, due to their customized nature.

I will combine orders and will refund a portion of your second order's shipping fees. (Portion held is to cover Etsy's nonrefundable shipping fee percentage that Sellers are charged now.)

Note: Color shades of items may sometimes seem to vary from my photos, due to differences in screens/monitors.
Payment
I now accept both Integrated Paypal and credit card payment.
Shipping
Currently shipping USPS domestic First Class and Priority Flat Rate only.
Additional policies and FAQs
BEST to contact me via convo, rather than email. I may not see your request and/or concern in my mailbox.

If you need me to alter your Etsy address, please contact me ASAP - I ship quickly - often same-day - if your order ships before you contact me, it will go to the address you have listed on Etsy.

If you want a paper receipt, please let me know in the comment section of your order. (A printable version is always available via email and in your Etsy account.)

Purchase totals are as listed on shipping labels, and cannot be adjusted by me.
