A heartfelt welcome to my little Etsy shop. Thanks for stopping by.

I am a maker of things and have been making my lampworked glass beads for fourteen years. I guess I am a traditionalist - I use the best methods and materials I can find to make pieces that will last through many generations of wear and enjoyment.

I use glass from all over the world, but mostly Moretti and Effetre glass from Murano, Italy, because I love the consistency, quality, colors and history.

All of my glass beads are accurately annealed in a digitally controlled kiln, so they're strong, durable and lovely to wear. I use .925 sterling silver findings, but can use gold if you prefer - please convo/email me if you would like something a little different.

The crystals I use are all genuine Swarovski Crystals, and I use them a lot with my glass beads. I make a range of Swarovski Crystal and sterling silver too.

I will always list the materials used in every piece.

I am all about customer service and all of my work is 100% guaranteed. If you're not happy, I'm not happy.

Everything piece comes gift wrapped in handmade paper packages.

I'm happy to tweek or re-size things too - let's talk.

Payment
For all customers outside New Zealand I accept Paypal only.

Shipping
**Tracking is not available on NZ international airmail, Tracking service costs an additional $35USD and requires a contact phone number. I ship International orders via NZ airmail uninsured, the cost of insurance is really not worth the price, so I take the risk. I have never yet had a parcel go missing, but if you do not receive your jewellery (allowing for reasonable delays in postal system!) I will send you another. Overseas airmail takes 5-10 working days as a rough guide, but there is no guaranteed exact time frame, If you are concerned please convo me.

I ship within 3 working days of receiving your payment, my aim is to get your jewellery to you as quickly as possible, as I know what it is like to wait and wait (NO FUN!). Exceptions to this are if I am out of a certain part or material that I am waiting on myself, in which case I will convo you to let you know of any delay.

New Zealand customers will receive jewellery via courier. There are 2 options for this, Non-signature or Signature required, I send via non signature required unless you request otherwise, I generally convo/email you to ask which you would prefer. Remember that if you choose Signature Required Courier you must be there to receive your courier package.
Additional policies and FAQs
I am very new to Etsy, but have been making and selling my beads online and locally for many years.

My partner (who is a traditional toy maker) and I have a workroom and gallery in the main street in Golden Bay, New Zealand called Traders of the Lost Arts where you are welcome to visit, look around and watch us work.

My interest in beads has been life-long and I'm always happy to talk about them...
