Right after I placed the order, I wrote to explain that I needed these number beads ASAP for a project that had an upcoming due date. I heard nothing back, and then the items were not even shipped 5 days later! After 2 more unanswered convos, creating a shipping label, but never going to the post office, the beads were finally shipped and arrived about 2 weeks late. By that time, I already bought ones locally so now I don't even need them. The beads are fine, but the lack of communication with this shop owner made it a frustrating experience

I ordered these beads on Jan 14, and they were supposed to have shipped by the 17th. When I saw that they had NOT shipped by the 19th, I wrote and asked why. I didn't get any reply despite 2 convos that week. Then I saw that a shipping label was created...but then 3 days later, the item hadn't even been brought to the post office! Finally, after another convo, I got a note explaining that a new label was made and she was refunding my shipping charges. While I appreciated the refund, the lack of communication was very upsetting

Although the item wasn't shipped till almost 2 weeks later and after multiple attempts of contacting them, they resolved the issue very well and I appreciate that. Thank you.

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.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns 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.
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.
Additional policies and FAQs
Work on custom orders doesn't begin until payment has cleared. I will not make samples.
