A Modern Sense of Style Inspired by a City

My name is Kvetka and I'll tell you a tale of how Ooh-la-la Beadtique Jewelry came to be, because I'm the one who started this whole shebang.

I started making jewelry and rosaries because I couldn't afford to buy them. And then I started selling my creations, because people kept asking me where I got my necklaces, rosaries and such. And everything exploded once I delved into nature based materials like stones, wood shells, pearls and of course, glass and crystal.

My jewelry and rosaries are made in my home studio in the green city of Toronto, Southern Ontario. My work is a blend of vibrant urban style and eco-friendly natural elements, with a hint of gypsy traveling spirit. I love to design colorful, approachable jewelry pieces that are also versatile from day to evening wear. My rosaries can be used for personal prayer or daily wear.

Materials Make a Difference
I use only high quality glass from the Czech Republic, and Italy, sustainable wood beads, natural and dyed shell beads, pearls, metal, lampwork glass beads crafted from artisans across the globe, and gemstone beads for a collection of timeless creations that are truly one of a kind.

Where I Find Inspiration
Having lived in one of the largest North American City, and having traveled throughout Canada from Atlantic to Pacific coast, my style is a little urban, a little woodsy, a hint of beach, and I love mixing vintage beads and natural elements to create something that is truly unique.

I have a modern sense of style that truly embraces natural elements. I'm addicted to pearls, shell beads, stones, wood, any materials deriving from nature and this has strongly influenced my creations. As one of the most common elements I work with, I prize shell beads for how Eco-friendly they are and how they help me keep my products affordable to everyone.

Wood beads, gemstones, and a variety of pearls add so much texture and depth, it is amazing what ideas can come to life from such simple components brought to us from Mother Nature.

Me and my Passion
I love what I do and I hope that is reflected in my work. I put a lot of care, and a lot of hours into it. I do everything myself, from designing the pieces, making individual jewelry, documenting my work, packing the orders, shipping and answering emails. I take pride in my little business and hope you enjoy my offerings.

Thanks to all my wonderful customers, you inspire me daily!

Returns and exchange details
I completely understand that shopping online is a little more difficult because you cannot see the piece in real life. Photographs are enlarged to show detail, and actual sizes are represented to the best of my ability through additional photos and measurements in imperial units (inches/feet), which can be converted to any desirable measurements using an online unit convertor - http://www.digitaldutch.com/unitconverter/. If you are not completely satisfied with your purchase, I will be happy to issue you a refund (minus shipping) for any item that you are not happy with.

Please contact me BEFORE returning an item within 3 days of receipt for a refund for a Return Authorization (RA) Number. Once you receive a (RA), you MUST return the item in its original unused condition (including attached tags) with the Return Authorization clearly marked on the package and a copy of the invoice. If there is an error on my end, I will accept responsibility for return shipping. Otherwise, return shipping is the customer's responsibility - I recommend using the original packing materials, and shipping with tracking, to ensure the item is successfully delivered and returned in the condition received.

The standard shipping method and Free Shipping (Lettermail Canada and Light Packet USA/International) used is the most economical - it does NOT have insurance or tracking. I cannot be responsible for purchases once shipped unless insurance is paid for. If you would like tracking number please upgrade your shipping method from economy or free to tracked parcel.

Care instructions

1. Jewelry should only be put on after washing and applying any makeup, hair spray, gels, lotions or perfume.

2. Protect any jewelry from harsh chemicals, extreme temperatures and sunlight.

3. You should not wear beaded jewelry while doing household, outdoor chores or sports.

4. You should never wear any jewelry when swimming or showering. The chlorine can cause damage to various gemstones and metals.

5. Store your jewelry separately so it doesn't scratch other jewelry. Plastic bags or cloth dust bags are wonderful for protecting jewelry pieces.

6. Always store your beaded necklaces or bracelets flat.

7. Keep your jewelry in a clean, and dry place.

Do you repair any old jewelry and rosaries?

Unfortunately I don’t repair old beaded jewelry or rosaries that was not purchased from Ooh-la-la Beadtique. Many handmade jewelry pieces are often constructed from one-of-a-kind components, leaving them impossible to find again. However I do offer a Redesign Service. If customers have broken or unattractive beaded jewelry in their jewelry boxes and want it redesigned I will be happy to do so charging for my time and materials. This service results in new piece of jewelry or rosary at a fraction of cost of a new retail piece. Feel free to contact me for more details.
Repair services on products purchased from Ooh-la-la Beadtique are available. For further information please refer to my next FAQ

Free repairs on Ooh-la-la Beadtique Products

If your item has minor damage due to wear, or an accident within three years from purchase, please contact me, and more often than not I will be able to provide you with repairs with no labour costs.

You will only need to pay for postage and possible materials costs.

Note that items which have major damage, particularly to the 'focus' of the piece (eg. a pendant being badly scratched or dented), may not be able to be repaired and you would instead need to consider replacing the item.

Contact me with your issues, and I’ll be more than happy to give you an idea of what will be needed to repair your item.

Do you have a physical store location where a local pick up can be made?

Although Ooh-la-la Beadtique jewelry studio is located in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, my products are sold from my online store ONLY.

Why does my order look different than your product listing?

Many Ooh-la-la Beadtique handmade products are crafted using natural components such as semiprecious stones, freshwater pearls, sea shells and wood. No two materials in nature are alike. The handmade product that you will receive may vary in shade and texture pattern from the picture listing.

Also note that all monitors and computer screens are calibrated differently. The same product may appear in diverse colors and contrast on different monitors.
