Welcome to Jensen Beach Beads

I make and sell unique, original, OOAK jewelry pieces handmade from artisan beads. Colors to die for, sterling silver, and lots of gems. A virtual jewelry box to sift through!

As a seasoned jewelry designer/maker, my focus is on handmade lamp work glass beads. Each bead is a work of art, hand-torched, never to be duplicated, which is how I treat my lamp work pieces. I choose wonderful beads from trusted artists, then I complement them with anything that catches my eye, mainly sterling, vermeil, gemstones, copper, Swarovski crystals, and hand forged metals.

I offer free layaway because I believe if a piece of my jewelry speaks to you, you should own it, and in this economy, that may be impossible without weekly payments of whatever you can pay. It's worth it to me to have my jewelry go to someone who loves it, after all, I put everything into my creations. If you would like to purchase something using layaway, just convo me and it's yours.

After selling my handmade jewelry on Etsy for several years, I closed my shop for almost three years to deal with family issues. I reopen it now, in October 2015 and look forward to making the jewelry that so many of you loved. I love making it and am glad to be back.

My name is Nancy, not Jensen as most people think. I discovered Jensen Beach on Florida's East Coast over 35 years ago when my parents retired nearby, and I decided I would name my daughter (if I had one) Jensen. Well, I told everyone for 9 months what the names were for both boy & girl, and every time I said Jensen, they looked at me funny and said, "that's for a boy, right? Kind of a weird boy name!!". I chickened out, as I didn't want to burden my child with a weird name, so my daughter is Kate, and my baby (my business) is Jensen. Welcome!

You might think that all of my efforts go into making jewelry. I only wish that were true! I spend maybe 20% of my time actually putting jewelry together. The rest of the time is spent searching (via the internet) for the prettiest, most unique, and best supplies I can find. It takes hours to find the right beads by the right artist, and you have to weed out the sellers who sell less than perfect or fake items. There are so many types of "sterling silver" out there, it's astounding. I will not buy lampwork beads from a seller who uses women and young children in sweatshops in China (or elsewhere) and claims they are "handmade". No mass-produced beads here.That doesn't count as handmade in my eyes, and it's atrocious. I will not pay more for shipping than I do for my supplies, either, so that whittles the possibilities down. If a specific region of the US or the world is in crisis, I try my best to buy from that area to help the artists who need it most. Finally, I will not buy from rude people. Life is too short!

Accepted payment methods

  • Money Order
  • Check
  • Other Method
Payment
Paypal is my preference, I also accept Money Orders and Personal Checks.Payment is expected within 24 hours of sale unless we have made other specific arrangements. I am easy-going, if you need more time, talk to me.
Shipping
Shipping is via USPS, usually first class, I do not insure everything, it is imperative that you ask for and pay for insurance if you want it. It happens seldom, but packages are sometimes lost, and without insurance, I will not remake or reimburse you for that loss. I personally pay for insurance every time I buy, I think it's worth the $2.50 extra. That being said, I cannot afford to pay that extra amount for every sale.
Refunds and Exchanges
Absolutely no questions asked returns within 7 days of purchase, less shipping fees both ways unless damaged or not as described. I'm here to make jewelry that people love, if you don't, don't keep it!
Additional policies and FAQs
I guarantee my work 100%, please convo me immediately if you're dissatisfied for any reason. Your time is much appreciated, thank you!
