SpecialSparkles is taking a short break

Loading

Note from shop owner Dear Customers, I'm taking a break for a few months. I wish I could say the reason is for a fantastic vacation, but it's not. I work at a tax firm and it gets way to busy during tax season for me to do much of anything else. I'll be closed through April.

Feel free to email me at: anne.manyak [!at] gmail.com with questions or further information.

Cheers,

Jen

Welcome to Special Sparkles! We specialize in BIG, chunky, bubblegum beads and pendants! You'll find an array of colorful faux pearls, gum ball beads, striped resin beads, rhinestone beads, faceted rounds, glitter pendants, rondelles, and an array of other funk-a-delic, fun pieces!

NOTE: BIG BEADS are our speciality - 95% of our inventory is 20mm and above.

Our goal is to become your one-stop-beading shop for your little girls' chunky, bright, and beautiful bubblegum necklaces and bracelets! I absolutely love the creations ya 'all make! Why, I might start purchasing and wearing some myself!

Payment
PayPal is our preferred payment method. However, if you would like to pay via e-check or regular check, please convo us first so we can work it out.
Shipping
We do our very, very best to ship orders within 1-3 days and our shipping stats are excellent. We use first class mail to keep costs down as long as the package is under 13 ounces. If it is greater than 13 ounces, then we use flat-rate priority mail. We charge actual cost and DO NOT seek to profit off of shipping costs.

We package and ship in the order received. Please note that it's not unusual for us to have 20-30 open orders at any given time.

ABOUT EXPEDITED SHIPPING: For the most part, I am a one-woman operation and I'm NOT set up to do expedited shipping. Doing so throws a kink into my necessarily very streamlined operations. It requires me to stop everything I'm doing, drive to my nearest FedEx or other provider, get packing materials, drive back to my shop, package the order, fill out long forms, and then drive back to FedEx and drop it off. This doesn't make sense for my current level of operation, it stresses me out, and returns no benefit to Special Sparkles above and beyond regular orders. For these reasons, I DO NOT OFFER ANY TYPE OF EXPEDITED SHIPPING SERVICES.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING: As you well know, shipping costs are based on weight and these beads become very heavy very fast. Given this, the best option is International FLAT RATE. Here is a guideline to the costs:

Small box: $19.95
Padded envelope: $34.95
Medium box: $40.95
Large box: $53.95

Please know that I DO NOT seek to profit off of shipping. If the shipping cost you pay is $2.00 or MORE than actual cost, I will reimburse the difference.
Refunds and Exchanges
If you really, really don't like your item(s), I will refund your money upon receipt of the return. You will need to pay for the return postage. If the item(s) are damaged, I will either replace the item or refund your money - your choice.
Additional policies and FAQs
ABOUT MY PHOTOGRAPHS: Some years ago, I was working to become a professional photographer. I went to the Academy of Art College in San Francisco and gained a great deal of knowledge. Over the years, I've always kept my hand in photography to hone my skills and keep them current. As such, I take pride in my photos - I invest a lot of time, energy, and skill in them - and my photos are MY PHOTOS.

Please know that I hold COPYRIGHT permission on EVERY PHOTO on my Etsy site. If you take my photos and use them w/o my permission, it is illegal and I can sue you. Of course, a law suit is not my first course of action. First, I will ask you to remove them. If you don't, I will report you to Etsy or Facebook or whatever platform you're working off of. If that doesn't work, then I will take legal action.

Please know that I'm flattered that you like my photos. I've recently have had the honor of one of my photos becoming the cover of a book! These people asked my permission and of course I granted it. I'm typically happy to work with you, so please, please ask me before you take my photographs and use them for your personal gain.
