A note about color reproduction and listing photos: As fantastic as technology is it cannot compete with the job our eyes and brain do to view and perceive color. The listing process compresses photos so they lose color, contrast & clarity. Be sure to click on a photo to see it full size for the best quality image. We try hard to reproduce our beads as accurately as possible but there are many variables, including monitor calibrations, so please convo if you need more information or have questions.

JUNE 25, 2016 - IMPORTANT UPDATE RE SHIPPING TO CANADA :

Due to an ongoing labour dispute, Canada Post has informed us that it may halt acceptance of new shipments and delivery of mail and parcels beginning on July 2nd. At this time, all shipments to, within, and from Canada that are handled by Canada Post will be affected until the dispute is resolved. This includes shipments into Canada from other national carriers like USPS and Royal Mail. Updates can be found here: https://www.canadapost.ca/web/en/comm/list.page?ecid=murl|ddn|lr|5 We wish our Canadian neighbors a speedy resolution to this issue.

ooooooooooohweeeeeeee! These are so so stunning. Sigh. Little treasures. Delicious color combo. A real 'gemy' quality. Sorta 'glisteny'.

We love our beads and hope that you do, too. We strive to describe all items as accurately as possible. Most of our beads are unused & un-circulated and came to us in the original packaging or on the original strands. On the rare occasion that we do not receive our beads in this type of condition we will give our best estimate as to it's age & origin. We will be sure to specify this in the item description.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
We appreciate your payment via PayPal or Etsy Direct Checkout. E-checks are available to you via PayPal but they do delay shipment. Any custom fees & duties are the responsibility of the buyer. Please be aware of the rules & regulations of your home country.

We are happy to reserve items for you for a reasonable amount of time. When requesting a reserve listing please let us know when we can expect completion of the purchase. Unless previously arranged items held more than 5 days without purchase will be converted to a public listing. If you change your mind about the reserve please let us know. Thank you!
Shipping
JANUARY 2016 UPDATE: We regret that the USPS has raised shipping rates but you will notice an increase in our postage charge ONLY. We are being up front with our customers and have not raised our bead prices to try to bury it. The increase is only in the shipping rates. The new rates are somewhat erratic so any substantial overcharges will be refunded. To help offset this increase please see our shipping discount policy below:

We offer free or discounted worldwide shipping with a minimum purchase! Our great everyday cost saving shipping policy is:

U.S. Domestic - orders of $30.00 and up get FREE 1st class shipping.
International - orders of $100.00 and up get a 50% DISCOUNT on 1st class shipping cost.

This applies to regular item listings only. Special shipping requests may not be included, please inquire. Shipping refunds will be issued through your payment method - either PayPal or Etsy Direct Checkout.

Postage rates are beyond our control and if you have any questions about the shipping cost of your order please convo us. I am happy to weigh out the items for you to provide the most accurate estimate possible. Postage costs are like New York sales tax "We don't charge it - we just collect it."

We ship First Class in a bubble lined mailing envelope via the USPS and will price shipping fairly and accurately. Heavy items may be upgraded to Priority Mail only if absolutely necessary or requested by the customer. All items will be carefully wrapped in double or triple bubble wrap. Delivery Confirmation is included on all domestic packages & select international destinations.

We ship internationally via the USPS with the same care that we ship domestically. First Class International is our preferred method and as we use Endicia for our postage /customs forms we are able to insure packages to most countries. Please convo me if you have any questions.

We always submit customs forms and describe the package contents as "craft supplies." This is a fair and honest description that seems to work well in all countries. Please do not ask us to misrepresent the value of your package! Any custom fees & duties are the responsibility of the buyer. Please be aware of the rules & regulations of your home country.

Please contact us with any questions or special shipping needs that you may have.
Refunds and Exchanges
Full refunds will be given if items are not as described. Other than that we will give a refund of the item price less shipping costs within 5 days of receipt. All items must be returned in the exact same condition as they were shipped. Please ask all questions before purchasing.

If you are ever unhappy about any aspect of your purchase experience please talk to us! Your complete satisfaction is very important to us and we will work out whatever situation you may encounter. Honest!
Additional policies and FAQs
If you live in NY & have a tax number please convo us so we can arrange to receive a copy of your resale certificate. If we do not receive this we will have to charge sales tax on your purchase.
