Announcement   I have a Nice Selection of Beautiful Glass Beads both Czech Glass and Lots of my Handmade Glass Beads that I make just for my Etsy Site, Bead Shows and Bead Store…. I have been a jewelry designer for the past 39 years and a Lampworker (making glass beads) for the past 18 years on the beautiful island of Maui, Hawaii. I am now offering my Lei Type Bracelet and Earring Kits, along with my Hand Made Artisan Glass Beads and a special selection of Czech and German Glass Beads, Victorian and Antique Buttons. I Specialize in all the beads it takes to make my Garden Style Bead Work and Leather Wrap Bracelets.
When you buy $45.00 or more from my Etsy site in Czech Glass Beads, I will give you FREE instructions to either my Garden Bracelet, Garden Earrings or Leather Wrap Bracelet. You just have to ASK for the FREE instructions.
My Hand Made Glass Beads are made mostly out of Italian and German Art Glass, Double Helix, 22k gold leaf, silver leaf/foil, gold stone and dicro glass. All of my hand made beads are kiln annealed, cleaned, inspected for cracks/flaws and packed properly. I have been working with hot glass (flameworking) for the past 17 years.

Many of my Czech Glass Beads are reproductions of Vintage Molds made with new glass today. I carry most of the glass beads that you see in my beaded designs.

Please contact me through e-mail or my etsy site for any questions. Please ask if you would like something special or more of any item. I will be glad to make a reserved listing just for you.
My Pictures are enlarged to show the detail and design work on the beads or buttons. Colors on monitors vary and I do attempt to make the pictures look as close as possible on my monitor, but it may not match yours. Some colors are hard to capture by a photo…like reds, greens or some reflective glass.
I truly aim to please!!!!! When you are leaving feedback and are not fully pleased...please let me know and give me a chance to work it out with you...as I am aiming for a 5 star rating,,,,, For refunds....please contact me and let me know within 7 days of their arrival.

Please contact me if you need more time to pay or want another color in a certain type or color of bead. I usually carry quite a few colors in each type of bead. I can e-mail you that information if I do not have it up on Etsy yet.
Please look at the policies of etsy.com for more information.
Shipping
NOTE: There is a Price increase of around $4.00 on all International Orders as of 2/2016!!!! Until I can get all my listings updated....I will be asking for whatever your order costs to ship.....and will give you back and extra amount that you may pay on your order!
All items will be mailed out to the address listed on the individual's PAYPAL account or information given to me through e-mail or phone. All addresses must match your credit card or PAYPAL account. I will ship out purchases within 48 hours of confirmed payment, excluding Saturday, Sundays and postal holidays.
I will be using 1st class US Postal Service with a delivery confirmation all orders unless you would like your package to go another way. Flat Rate Boxes are a wonderful way to ship most anything which usually gets to the mainland within 3 to 5 days! I use it all the time with no problem so far. Please let me know if you would like your order to go out Priority Mail or If you are interested in any other types of shipping and insurance..I all so do combined shipping...if you order a lot of different items...I will charge you only what it costs me to ship it with delivery confirmation...and if you would like insurance.... Please contact me before payment so we can arrange the proper fees for your purchase. A Flat Rate Box can hold a lot of beads or kits…and can be as heavy as you like for what ever fits inside the box.
Please NOTE: All Shipping Costs that I do quote on my etsy site are estimates on what I think it will cost depending on the weight of your package. If for any reason your package is over the cost I did quote...you will be responsible to pay the extra amount that is costs to ship your package. I only charge what the post office asks. (Plus the cost of a delivery confirmation) Which is put on ALL packages. If you are charged too much…I will give you a credit back.

A Refund within 10 days of purchase will be given to those whom are not completely satisfied with your order on all Czech, German or my Handmade Glass Beads. Buyer will pay for all shipping fees unless I have stated something wrong or made a mistake. NO EXCHANGES on any Bead Kits or my Hand Made Jewelry. Sorry about this....so please talk to me through e-mail or etsy message before you make your purchase. I aim to please and what to have a happy customer! (I have sold these kits now for 13 years at my Bead Store and with The Whole Bead Shows throughout the US and at The Tucson Gem and Mineral Show)....We do not give refunds or exchanges in either of those markets...and have had no problems so far)
I will not offer an exchange due to the colors of the beads. I try to describe the item the best I can and do have a great camera to let you see the nice colors for you to see whatever it is that I am selling... Beads do come in color lots...so buy enough to complete you project AT THE TIME purchase an item. Some beads and kits could be not available again...they will be labeled limited edition. i do sell beads that I can not ever get again...as they are not making that bead any longer.
Much Aloha from Beautiful Maui, Sarah

Thank you for your understanding.
All Hawaiian residents must pay a 4.167% sales tax unless you provide a State Tax ID and put that information on file with our store.

Pictures of Beads, Jewelry and Kits may look larger in the picture that what they actual are. I am giving you a close up detailed picture....so you can see the design of the bead or color...... I try to come as close as possible to the item that I am selling.

All Jewelry and Hand Made beads are Handmade by me Sarah Klopping and not made in China or a foreign country...they are made in the US. I all ways appreciate the support of those who want to support local or US Artists. All Handmade Glass beads sets are made to be close in appearance to one another, but they are handmade, so there will be subtle differences within the set of beads.
