About

Helping people with weird names since 1995

I've been helping my mother at craft shows since I was three years old. (Maybe "helping" wasn't the operative word back then.) I started selling jewelry on her table when I was maybe nine or ten, but didn't do much business.

My aunt mentioned that she used to do a brisk business in name bracelets and necklaces when she owned a small store, and I should try it. Soon, I was selling dozens of pre-made bracelets at every show, and making custom bracelets for anyone who asked.

For the last few years, I've been selling name bracelets on eBay, Etsy, and at selected craft shows. Sitting on the ground with five boxes of beads open while I made custom bracelets was fun, but filling online orders is a lot less stressful.

    My aunt started selling name bracelets in the '80s, and made me one when I was three years old. I've been at it since 1995, making them on the fly at craft shows before Etsy was invented.

Payment
I accept PayPal, credit cards through Etsy, and United States money orders. I do not begin work on custom orders until payment is received or a PayPal eCheck has cleared.
Shipping
INTERNATIONAL ORDERS: I welcome international orders, and I charge close to my actual cost for shipping. However, there is always a chance that orders might get lost in the customs system. For most countries, international shipments are only tracked until they leave the United States. If your package goes missing after this point, I will replace the items, but you will need to pay shipping for the replacement package.
Refunds and Exchanges
If I've made an error in a bracelet or custom letter order, I will replace the order at my expense.

If an item isn't right for you or for your project, that's cool. If you're in the US, I can send you a shipping label to send it back to me and issue a refund. If you're outside of the US and don't want to pay return shipping yourself, please donate the beads to a local community center or give them away.

To state the obvious, I will not issue a refund if you've kept any of the beads.
Additional policies and FAQs
Work on custom orders doesn't begin until payment has cleared. I will not make samples.
