Having fun creating with the tree of life beads and the metallic rondelles.
A set I created last night using mostly beads from this shop. Specifically the carved ovals which are on sale this weekend.
This is a bracelet created with the new PINCH BEADS. They come in many colors and I personally love them. They are very versatile and easy to work with!

About

I want to be your One-Stop-Shop! Repeat Customers are the best compliment!!

If you are shopping on your phone or tablet, please click on the ANNOUNCEMENT tab to see updates about shipping, coupon codes and new items. Shopping on the Etsy App will appear differently than shopping on your computer.

~~ This shop IS my Job ~~ It's my main source of income. I'm always around so ask any questions you need. I love searching out new beads and seeing what my customers like. I want to hear from you!! I welcome your comments and suggestions. If you're looking for something in particular, let me know. I'll try to find it for you and offer you a competitive price.

I take great pride in providing you with not only the supplies you need, but also the customer service you deserve. I offer super speedy shipping. In most cases your order will ship the same day. If not, it will most certainly ship the next business day. I don't like to wait for my goodies, so why should you?? See my shipping policy for more details.

I want to gain your business. If you find another shop offering the same bead for a lower price I want to know. Many times shop owners offer a lower price on beads, but a higher price for shipping. If you find beads cheaper, send me the link. If I can, I will adjust my price to gain your business. Once you see how awesome my service is, you'll be back for more!

I promptly respond to emails, questions, comments. I will search out the merchandise you want. I ship as fast as humanly possible and I care. If you ever experience a problem with the product I sell, let me know. I'll make it right!

FAQ's

WHAT IS THE HOLE SIZE OF THE CZECH GLASS BEADS?
~ Unless otherwise stated in the listing description, the Czech beads have a hole size of approximately .8mm. Some might be slightly bigger and some slightly smaller. Most of the beads will fit on a 21g head/eye pin and all should fit on beading wire. Some of the leaves and flowers may require a thinner gauge head/eye pin (22g - 24g).

WHAT IS THE HOLE SIZE OF THE LAMP WORK BEADS?
~ Most of the lampwork beads have a hole size of 1mm-1.5mm.

WHEN DO YOU SHIP?
~ I ship Monday - Saturday. If an order is received before 1pm(PST) I will ship it the same day. If you order after 1pm(PST) and I have time to get it out, I will. If not it will ship the next day. I take my packages to the Post Office around 3pm(PST) so they get out and on their way to you quickly.

If for any reason I can not ship your order timely I will message you with the reason. If I will not be shipping on specific day or days, I will post a message in the shop announcement letting you know. I sometimes take a Saturday off or have an appointment out of town.
(SEE SHIPPING POLICIES FOR MORE DETAILS)

DO YOU REORDER OUT OF STOCK/SOLD OUT ITEMS?
~ If the item is popular I keep it in stock whenever possible. I place orders to my suppliers weekly! Sometimes an item runs out before I have a chance to reorder. If you see something you like, but I don't have a large enough quantity, or there is an item that you purchased in the past that is sold out, please ask! I may have it on order, can order it for you, or might have some in my personal stash that I can sell you. Just let me know what you need and I'll do my best to get it for you quickly.

CAN YOU DISCOUNT THE SHIPPING RATE?
~ Unfortunately no. In January 2016 the shipping rates increased. My shipping rate for US packages is a flat $2.95, no matter how many items you purchase. More times than not, my cost is more than that for the postage and shipping materials.

The international rates went sky high. However, for International rates it's very difficult to gauge the rate for multiple items. It is very likely that if you purchase several items (5 or more) you could get a refund on some of the shipping costs. I will only keep the shipping fees necessary to ship your package. Any excess shipping collected will be refunded at the time I create your shipping label and know the exact costs.

DO YOU PRICE MATCH?
~ Yes, I will do my best to match a competitors price on a bead or findings. If you find the exact same bead elsewhere, send me a message with a link to the product. When I compare their shipping rates, quantity and bead I will let you know if the price can be matched. Be sure to compare shipping too! Sometimes they offer a cheaper price on the bead but their shipping rates are higher.

If you have any questions about a product I offer, or would like to see another bead or finding in my shop, please let me know. I will do my best to find it for you. I do NOT make the lamp work beads in the shop. I do however search out interesting designs, the prettiest I can find and offer them to you at a competitive price.

Bulk Orders are welcome. If you need a larger quantity than what is shown, please contact me... especially with the findings. I will do my best to accommodate your needs and frequently offer a discounted price for bulk orders.

This shop is my primary focus, but I do make jewelry and other items with these beads.

Payment
I accept PayPal and Credit Cards when paid through PayPal. You can check out as a PayPal Guest and use your credit card for payment if you do not have a PayPal account or do not want to use PayPal funds. Please read my shop announcement for details on how to do this.

Etsy has had some significant delays processing Credit Cards through their site lately in July 2016. Therefore, I have suspended the Direct Checkout method of payment which is Credit Cards and Etsy Gift Cards. I hope this will be a temporary suspension but I do not want my customers orders and funds being held up for days because of the processing issues.

CANCELLATIONS: Once an order has been shipped it can not be cancelled. You can return the merchandise for a refund but no shipping charges will be reimbursed.

RETURNS: Please notify me if you are unhappy with an item and wish to return it. As soon as I receive the merchandise back in salable condition I will refund the purchase price of the goods. Shipping refunds will be subject to my approval, but in most cases are not refundable.

SALES TAX: is collected on orders shipped within California. If you have a resale permit I will refund the sales tax once your Seller's Permit # has been provided. Please refer to the CA BOE website for more details on how this applies to you in you are a CA registered business.

MULTIPLE ORDERS IN ONE DAY: will be combined in one shipping package whenever possible. Because I offer a flat rate shipping, if I combine your orders the shipping fees on the second order will be refunded to you.

HOLIDAY SHIPPING SCHEDULE:
I will follow the Normal Shipping Schedule below with these exceptions:
NO SHIPPING:
Saturday, December 10th and Saturday, December 17th
Thursday, December 22nd thru Wednesday, December 28th

NORMAL SHIPPING:
~◆~◆~◆~ 📅SHIPPING SCHEDULE 📅 ~◆~◆~◆~
~ Orders received BEFORE 1pm Mon-Fri will ALMOST ALWAYS ship the same day.
~ Orders received AFTER 1pm Mon-Fri will DEFINITELY ship the next business day.
~ Orders received AFTER 1pm on Friday will ALMOST ALWAYS ship on Saturday.
~ Orders received on Saturday BEFORE 10am will USUALLY ship the same day. Larger orders that take longer to process will not ship until Monday.

PLEASE CHECK THE SHIP TO ADDRESS ON YOUR ORDER.
I have had issues with customers who have moved and not changed their address. Etsy stores all the addresses you've used in your profile. When you place your order make sure you've selected the appropriate address. Clear any old or incorrect addresses from your profile to prevent errors. It is your responsibility to provide an accurate shipping address. If an order is returned to me for an incorrect or undeliverable address I will refund the purchase price of the goods but not the shipping. You will have to repurchase the merchandise if you want it reshipped.

I provide tracking numbers and delivery confirmation on all US packages. If I have confirmation that your package was delivered to the address on your order I can not be held responsible for the misdirected merchandise. Check your address carefully!! Please!!!

Once the shipping label is prepared you will receive an email confirmation with your tracking number. All packages are shipped USPS First Class Mail, unless we make other arrangements.

I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THE DELIVERY OF YOUR PACKAGE ONCE IT LEAVES MY HANDS AND HAS BEEN SCANNED RECEIVED BY MY POST OFFICE. I can not be held accountable for the actions of the USPS, included delayed delivery or misdirected delivery. Insurance is your only recourse for recovering the loss for a stolen or damage package.

I print my labels (vs. handwritten), make sure the zip code includes the extra 4 digits and take my packages to the Post Office to insure they get out as quickly as possible. I make at least one trip, sometimes two trips to the post office in a day. Unless you want overnight delivery, the standard USPS First Class Mail should get your package to you within 2-4 business days. The closer you are to CA, the more likely you are to get your package in two days. Buyers on the East Coast typically receive their packages in 3-4 days. **During the holiday season, packages can take longer to be delivered than normal *** Check your tracking number to monitor the progress of your shipment.

SHIPPING UPGRADES are available at checkout. You can purchase insurance to cover loss or damage of your package, signature required, or priority mail. I will not include insurance on purchases under $30 unless you've paid for it. In most cases it's not necessary, but with large orders or if you live in an area where theft is possible, you may want to purchase adequate insurance to cover your purchase.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPMENTS: -- I AM NOT OFFERING INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING AS OF 12-6-16 -- There have been several packages delayed and two not delivered which caused hardships for me and the customer. If you are willing to incur extra fees on top of the already high International Postage fees, you may contact me to arrange purchase. Otherwise, I'm sorry, I can not fulfill your order.

Some International Buyers may incur additional fees or duty taxes upon delivery. These charges are regulated by your country and are not included in the prices or shipping of my listings. Please check with your country's Customs Office to find out when fees are applicable and how much they might be before making a purchase.
Refunds and Exchanges
I want you to be completely satisfied with your purchase. I will allow a return of an item purchased if you message me and send the item back within 5 days of receipt. I will refund your purchase price (less shipping) or send replacement items.

*** Please read my policy regarding photographs (below) prior to ordering unique beads. ***

PHOTOS:

COPYRIGHT - All Rights Reserved!!
I put a great deal of effort into taking photos and editing them to accurately portray the colors and design of the beads. The photos are the property of The Bead Bungalow and may NOT be used in any way without my express written permission.

Photos taken represent a sampling of the beads available. The actual items you receive will be similar (same bead/style/color/design) to the beads in the pictures, but may not be the exact beads photographed here, unless otherwise stated. All of my beads are high quality and I would not send you any bead I would not work with myself. I make jewelry and understand the importance of quality beads in your designs.

Photographs are taken indoors with indirect lighting and from different angles to show you all the details of the beads. I do my very best to describe and portray in the photos the true colors of the beads. Please bear in mind that computer monitors differ from one to another so the colors may seem lighter or darker than the actual product. If you are unhappy with your purchase you may return it within 5 days of receipt for a full refund of the purchase price (less shipping), or for exchange. If you have any questions about the color of a bead, please feel free to message me. I can take additional pictures with other beads to show you a color comparison.
