Welcome to Bellabolla Beads! I've been doing business on Etsy since 2008 aas Paper Demon Jewelry---please visit me there for a bit more feedback from satisfied customers! Bellabolla is a new venture as of June 2011 so I don't have much feedback here yet! But I'm an experienced Etsy seller and excited to start a second Etsy venture out of my home in Eugene, Oregon.

Bellabolla is dedicated to vintage beads, Made in Japan faux pearls, unusual vintage Japanese beads and supplies, and other interesting and hard to find jewelry supply items.

I lived in japan for many years and collected many of my items there, at antique markets like Heiwajima, temple flea markets, and small resale shops. I'm finally ready to part with them and make them available to you, the Etsy shopper!

I love custom orders and will do my best to accomodate! Just get in touch!

(日本語での販売も承っておりますので、お気軽にお問い合わせください We do business in Japanese also.)

Please get in touch if you have any questions, problems, comments, etc. I am convo and custom order friendly!


Please let me know how I’m doing by leaving feedback after you’ve received your purchase. My number one priority is customer service. If you are ever unsatisfied, please contact me first so I can rectify the situation. I guarantee 100% customer satisfaction and I want my customers to feel happy!
