I love the shorter version of my original necklace. The beadwork is beautiful and the necklace has a special meaning to me as I suffer from chronic pain. 5 stars!!!!

About

A tale of threads and sparkly things

A life long love of needlework of all kinds and a life long love of jewelry combined in 2009, and Whimsy Beading was born. At first offering plus-size strung jewelry items for plus-size folks like me, once I discovered off-loom beadweaving, I never looked back. It started simply, by learning the peyote beadweaving stitch, and exploded once I taught myself the spiral rope pattern from a Laura McCabe book. Since then I've expanded to netting stitches and developing my own patterns as well as making use of the fabulous patterns available from other beadweavers around the world - with their permission,of course!

Nowadays you'll usually find me at my beading table when I'm not working my full time job, and I'll probably be watching Doctor Who, Top Gear, or Burn Notice, though I have been known to get a little crazy and fire up a nice musical from time to time.

Shipping

**All overseas shipping is declared as merchandise for the full value paid.**

Shipping FAQs:

Q: Why is the shipping processing time so long?

A: Whimsy Beading is a one-person shop, and that person (that is, me) also has a full time job to pay for the non-sparkly, but needed things like health insurance, a mortgage, and cat food. So really, this is my second full-time job. Processing time will also vary depending on the size of the orders ahead of yours in the order queue, so your order may ship sooner than the 4-6 week turnaround if at all possible. If you need an order rushed to you, there is a small fee required, which can be purchased in addition to your item.
