We offer a large variety of beads here in Funky Pretty Bead Land. Some beads stand alone as simply beautiful little objects. You will also find more basic bead elements. Successful designs need some elements to recede quietly into the background so that the focal parts can shine. These are the beads that we often don't think about when we go to buy our beads, but having them at hand when designing is crucial.
Our intention is to inspire you and help you create beautiful designs. Inspiration is a wonderful thing. It makes the adrenalin flow. The best part of my job is making you bead happy.

I regularly add new beads. I think it's an addiction. Yea. No. It's definitely an addiction. The pile to photograph never seems to get smaller..... so check in often.
Have fun!

About funkyprettybeads

Sales 194,500
On Etsy since 2009

Color. Shape. Simplicity.

Beads. They are colorful, touchable, sensual and tactile little sculptures unto themselves. They come from all over the world. They reach out and want to be touched, drawing you in somewhat unexpectedly.
I started my bead shop on Etsy after designing and manufacturing jewelry for many years. Now instead of designing jewelry I enjoy taking beautiful images of my beads and sending them on to happy customers.
I love being here on Etsy selling you beads. I have realized that my job is making people happy. How cool is that? I have SO much fun putting together your orders.
So.... have fun. Enjoy the color experience. Ask questions if you need help. I love to assist you.

Frequently asked questions
Would you like to be on my mailing list to hear about sales?

Easy Peasy. Please just send me a mEssage through Etsy conversations.

Is the Sea Glass really from the ocean?

No. We call it "cultured" sea glass because it is made by humans. It is simply frosted or tumbled glass made to look like sea glass but you would never find anything like this at the beach. Some of my frosted glass beads are made from recycled glass. That's always a good thing.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING PRICING- PLEASE READ

The shipping rate, including insurance) is approximately $14 to most destinations up to 8oz Above 8oz the price jumps up $10 but.... that is the same price up to 2lbs! So if you purchase 9 oz it is not a good deal because you could pay the same amount of shipping all the way up to 2lb.
I will let you know if your order is slightly over 8oz so that if you want, you can remove an item or two to bring the shipping price down..... or add to your order to take advantage of the shipping fee up to 2lb. Please also not that the shipping fee that you see is an estimate. It cold cost more... or less. I will need to send a link for extra payment if needed or I will refund if it goes over.

Is that shipping price accurate?

The price for the first item is reflective of the price that you will pay for just one item. However if you have a lot of items, there is a small shipping fee added on for each item and that can add up to way more than the actual price. In this case I always refund your money when I process your order.

Are The Listed Sizes exact?

Most sizing is correct but sometimes there are small differences. It is odd but I get beads that are called for instance 4x6mm by the manufacturer but each manufacturer's sizes are actually slightly different but not so much that I list it as different size. I generally list sizes in whole numbers.

Are the inventory numbers Correct? Do I have more???

If you notice that you would like more bead than are currently listed in those dropdown menus, please DO ask. Unfortunately Etsy does not account for my tiered pricing structure. It's complicated but this inventory program takes 1 out of stock wether you order 2 beads or 100 beads. That means that I very likely have more than is listed. On the other hand I may not have multiple amounts on hand of the larger quantities.
So... it's impossible to keep these inventory numbers correct. And yes... it drives me crazy but I really like offering larger discounted quantities.
So... just ask. Thanks.

My tracking says delivered but I don't have it!!!

This happens on occasion. Before you contact me please call your local USPS carrier and give them your tracking number. Most often they will have your package. I have no more information about where your package is than you do by viewing tracking. If you still have not received your package please contact me. Thank you.
