Thanks for visiting my jewelry shop! Everything you see for sale incorporates upcycled, reclaimed, found or orphaned objects. While I do on occasion purchase newly manufactured materials, I try to use reclaimed materials and give new life to found objects by incorporating them in unexpected ways. Some imperfection is to be expected where vintage items are used.

I want you to be thrilled with your purchase... but if for some reason you are not, please contact me via my email at cindycarawaybeadwork [!at] and I will do everything I can to make it better!
Payment can be made securely, quickly and easily via PayPal. If you would like to pay with a money order, please contact me before purchasing to discuss details regarding payment.

You do not need a PayPal Account to pay for your items through PayPal:

You can choose the PayPal Option during checkout. After you submit your order click the “Pay Now” button. Scroll Down and you will see the option to pay with a Credit or Debit Card WITHOUT having to sign up for a PayPal account.
Items will ship the Tuesday following payment. Delivery confirmation, if available, is required and included in the shipping cost. Insurance is available for an additional cost - please contact me to arrange that.

As an added note: Reducing, reusing and recycling is important to us! Recycled shipping supplies are used when available. This can include pre-used padded envelopes, boxes that once carried various items or vintage tins/containers.
Additional policies and FAQs
I do not use precious metal (sterling silver or gold) findings or materials in my jewelry. Unless noted, it should be assumed that all materials are plated and/or non-precious. Many of the materials used are salvaged from older jewelry pieces and, while I may get lucky or unsuspectingly use something made from silver or gold, it is not the norm.

I would be happy to work with you on a custom order! Contact me via a convo or email me at cindycarawaybeadwork [!at]

Also, convo me to ask about my lay-away plan! Pay for your purchase in 5 easy payments. 20% of the purchase total is due at the time of check-out - this will be held as a non-refundable deposit. The balance will then be split into 4 easy payments, due every 2 weeks from the date of purchase. Once your invoice is paid in full, your new jewelry will be shipped to you. A warning, though - if you default on the payments or decide against the items, the 20% deposit will be forfeit but any additional money paid will be refunded to you. Lay-away is available on all orders over $100.
