Hard to find as a heishi. for a dark stone, it throws a nice amount of light.

Another great heishi. Great shade of yellow/lemon.

Will lend themselves to other like-toned stones, as well as some citrine that I already have.

If these beads could talk......
I always wonder who was the last person to touch this glass in ancient times... Where were they going.... What were they doing... Could they ever imagine me wondering about them and sharing this with you on my iPhone ?

There is nothing pretentious about this shop, just down to earth variety that any one can afford.

To contact me PLEASE USE THE ETSY CONVO FEATURE this e mail address is not monitored.

My goal is for every customer to feel that they have a source for reasonably priced beads and gems. Whether you order a simple inexpensive item or the highest quality item I offer, I hope that you find that the price you paid was more than fair for what you chose.

you can easily track it by logging onto pay pal, selecting the transaction and then selecting track.

Accepted payment methods

  • Pay with Visa
  • Pay with Master Card
  • Pay with American Express
  • Pay with Discover
  • Pay with PayPal
*If you select PRIORITY - it is important for you to read our shipping policies below.*

PAY PAL only - it is fast and easy to set up an account. If you don't have a pay pal accountyou can still use a credit card through the Pay pal check out.

♥ PAYING WITH A CREDIT CARD?: To use a credit card for payment, after adding your items to your cart, click on the green "Checkout with PayPal." When the PayPal window comes up, click on the second option "Don't have a PayPal Account?" This allows you to enter your credit card information. Please make sure your shipping address is correct.

NOTE* If you pay with an E check through pay pal, I can not ship your order until the e check clears, this usually takes 3 to 10 business days. If you are in a hurry for your package, I suggest paying via PAY PAL with your credit card or debit through your bank account instead of e check.
I ship ALL ORDERS via the United States Post Office only. (USPS)

PRIORITY? when you choose this option, I will pay for and print a priority shipping label which means the post office will deliver accordingly. PLEASE NOTE - this does NOT mean that I can take the package to the post office immediately, I do not have the transportation to do that. ALL packages will be handled the same on my end the only difference is the handling of the post office. Also, the USPS does NOT guarantee any particular speed of delivery, only that it is handled differently than first class mail.
When counting delivery days, do not count the day the order was placed and holiday and weekends do not count either.

If you place and pay for your order Monday thru Thursday before 5PM pacific - your order will usually be shipped the next morning.* If it is later than 5pm pacific it may add an additional day for packing and handling before we can get it to the post office.
If you place and pay for your order Friday, Saturday or Sunday before 5PM pacific - your order will usually be shipped the following Monday morning.*

I ship domestic orders TO THE PAY PAL ADDRESS, so please make sure it is up to date before check out. Sorry no exceptions.
TRACKING NUMBERS? You can track yourself through pay pal- just log into pay pal, select the transaction and click on “track”.

INTERNATIONAL - we no longer ship outside the US

Maybe; - I pack orders and print postage VERY QUICKLY so if you place an order, then place a second order with out getting my "ok" first I may not be able to combine your orders and postage fees. You really need to check with me first.

NOTE~ If you pay with an E check through pay pal, I will not ship your order until the e check clears, this usually takes 3 to 10 business days.

When I started this internet business I promised my family that there would be no strangers coming to our home, nor would I meet customers elsewhere. This means I do not hand deliver orders, I can't meet you somewhere for delivery and you can't come over to shop in person.
The reasons are for privacy as well as safety, not to mention that I have an extremely full schedule which includes almost no free time for such adventures. :)

You might imagine that I live in a bead shop; but an internet business is a lot different, nothing is on display, nothing has price tags and there is no way someone could "shop" in my inventory closet.

I hope you are not offended, it is not personal, I have never done business this way.
If this means that I sometimes lose a sale to locals, then I can accept that.

Additional policies and FAQs
I do not reserve items.

Prices are firm.

If you don’t think that I deserve a positive feedback for your purchases, please contact me to see if we can work it out. I am not perfect, and if I do make a mistake, I want to know about it, and I want to have a chance to fix it for you.

Most of the gemstones I sell here are hand made in India this means that each and every stone is truly unique. You should expect some variation from stone to stone.

*SIZES - I allow +/- 1mm from the sizes I state in my descriptions, although if I do vary I usually try to send larger stones.

*HOLE SIZES - are very small in India gems, you should assume that 26-28 gage wires will work for most of our product.

*COLORS - probably the most common complaint in ALL shops is that the color is not as expected. Each image goes from camera to computer to etsy server to your computer to your monitor. I work from 3 different computers and the same images look drastically different on each one, so there is no amount of editing or photography that can ensure that the image will be reflected perfectly on your monitor.
Keep in mind I am not a professional photographer so please ask questions about a product if my picture or the description doesn't give you the info you need.

Please don't make assumptions about what you will get- on the rare occasion that I have had a disappointed customer, it has stemmed from a combination of the customer making an assumption about a product where I did not have a detailed enough description. I am not blaming those customers; however, I just want to point out that lack of details in my description does not automatically mean that the item is magically going to be what you imagine, of AAAA flawless quality or perfect in any way. So, if you are in need of something VERY SPECIFIC please convo me to check that a product will meet your needs before purchasing.

My goal is a mutually beneficial business transaction so if you have realistic expectations, I'm sure we will have no problems settling any issue that you may have.


Since there doesn't seem to be a universally accepted rating scale for grading gemstones (some sellers say all of their stuff is AAAA++++) LOL ... Below is a reasonable scale;

AAAA; Absolutely pristine in every way, NO inclusions, Perfect!
AAA ; Nearly Perfect, For high end stuff.
AA; Extremely nice, with very minor imperfections
A; Very nice, inclusions and imperfections will be easier to detect, still very worthy of use in higher end designs due to the fact that when in a finished piece the imperfections would likely be hidden or overcome by the overall piece.

B; Imperfections are easy to detect, however they may be offset by its positive features such as size, color, cut etc. A good buy for those creative enough to use the positive features to their advantage.

C; Rustic and/or organic in appearance. May be full of inclusions, "nugget" or "pebble" is used to describe it. Nevertheless, it still has its place among affordable jewelry.

D; Generally made from the least desirable stones of its type.


*All of the above statements are policies are preferred practices, in no way do these statements constitute promises or guarantees. I make reasonable attempts every day to see to it that all of my customers are taken care of in the same fashion I would expect from an online shop. You are all equally important to me.

1) If you are not willing to return an item in order to get a refund, you should never ever order anything from me. .
2) I do reserve the right to refuse service to anyone and without explaining my reasons.

If any of the above policies do not suit you please shop elsewhere.
