Love, love, love the brooches! This a pic of the brooches with a sampling of the beads and charm I'm going to use to decorate my Norse Apron Dress ensemble. I definitely recommend Bits n' Beads!

Artisan Jewelry Rich in Color and Quality
The colors that surround us us add an extra level of beauty and richness to every day of our lives. Sometimes color isn't just seen but experienced through all the senses and even the emotions.
I strive to add a bit of extra color to your life and make each of your days a little brighter with a variety of colorful, quality pieces that will be perfect as a gift for yourself or for someone else!
Jewelry Design and Spiritual Motivation
.●▬▬▬▬ Custom requests are Welcome! ▬▬▬▬●.
Each piece offered in this shop is a uniquely hand-crafted piece of art lovingly created to be enjoyed for years to come. With over twenty years of experience in jewelry design to back each piece I offer, you can rest assured you're receiving top-quality craftsmanship backed by a loving attention to detail.
I often use cleaned and re-purposed vintage beads and jewelry components in many of the colorful creations in my shop. This is a terrific way to help keep waste to a minimum and help out the community at the same time since I shop for vintage materials at places like the Salvation Army where the profits go back into the community.
Despite Etsy's recent changes in policy concerning what they consider to be "handmade", in Bits n Beads by Gilliauna you will only find items created by hand by the shop owner. There are no manufacturing processes, factories or employee contributions to my shop. Instead, there is only the supplies that I personally pick out to use and my two hands that then create the items that are then listed for purchase.

Frequently asked questions
A Note on Returns
Please contact me right away if you need to return an item. Most items can be returned for refund or exchange (usually less the shipping charges) if they are shipped back within 21 days of delivery in undamaged condition. (Note: "Undamaged condition" includes lack of odors such as cigarette smoke, perfume, etc).
Please include your name and return address inside the package when returning so that I can look up your order and process your refund once it arrives. No refunds will be processed until the returned item arrives back to me.
Custom and Personalized Orders
If you're interested in a personalized design just for you, or if you would like something you've seen in the shop in a different size or color, don't hesitate to send a note! I love custom orders and I am happy to work with you to create something to your specifications.
I also offer discounts on bulk orders, which include custom orders. This is ideal for if you need party favors, wedding favors, etc. (Please note that all custom orders require a 50% non-refundable deposit for materials and artist's time spent regardless of if the order is canceled.)
When will my order ship? What do shipping charges cover?
SHIPPING NOTICE: All orders placed between April 28th thru May 4th will ship out on Friday, May 5th. (This includes 2-Day Express packages.)
Your shipping charge covers all shipping and handling expenses including postage, envelope, packaging, and padding to ensure your purchase arrives undamaged.
How long until my item arrives?
Once your order has shipped, the estimated delivery times are as follows...
USPS First Class in the Continental U.S.: 2 - 5 business days;
USPS Priority Mail in the Continental U.S.: 1 - 3 business days;
2nd Day Air in the Continental U.S.: (GUARANTEED) 2 business days;
USPS First Class International: 5 - 15 business days;
USPS Priority Mail International: 6 - 10 business days;
USPS 5 Day Express International: 3 - 5 business days;
Canada Post (for Canadian Addresses Only): 3 - 7 business days
Please note that all INTERNATIONAL shipping times are estimates and are not guaranteed. Delays at customs or other similar complications could increase your wait time.
This is a gift, will you include an invoice?
Because many of the orders placed in my shop are sent directly to friends and family as gifts, I don't usually include a printed receipt when orders are shipped. If you would like a printed invoice included in your order, please send me a note and let me know.
Do you offer discounts and coupon codes?
I offer coupons and discounts during certain holidays and events as well as a discount for return customers. Please note that all coupon codes and discount codes must be applied to your order at check-out or they are not valid for use. I will not apply coupons and discounts retroactively (i.e., after your transaction is complete and your order has shipped).
What if I think that my package is lost?
Please contact me immediately if you believe your package has been lost in transit.
For International Orders: Delivery times quoted by the post office are usually accurate, barring any delays that may be caused by customs issues at the country of destination.
No international package will be considered lost until 45 days after your order's ship date. This ensures that there are no customs delays or other issues causing a delay in delivery. At that time, I will send you a link for you to confirm via affidavit that you have not received your item. Once completed, I will then refund your order.
My order was damaged in transit! What do I do?
If your item is damaged in transit, please contact me immediately so that I can do my best to resolve the problem for you!
Claims of damage will require a picture of the item and its damage, as well as the damaged packaging it came in, in order to move forward.
I have allergy concerns...
I only purchase supplies that are lead free and nickel free so that you can buy with confidence. All items listed for sale are made in a smoke-free environment. If you have allergy concerns pertaining to items that you're interested in purchasing, please feel free to contact me. I'm happy to answer any questions you may have.
!! International Orders !!
Please be aware that Etsy has added wording under item price in seller's listings that states "VAT included (where applicable)".
VAT/TAXES are NOT included in the price of my items.
I am located in the US and Canada, and I have no way to collect or pay these taxes. These charges vary according to the destination country, and are the responsibility of the importer (purchaser) if the import country's government chooses to collect them upon delivery.
I sincerely apologize if the wording beneath the price in my listings causes or has caused any confusion. Please understand it was Etsy that added this wording to seller's listings, and I have no control over it, nor any way to remove it.
