Announcement    I'm sorry to announce that after all my years of selling here on Etsy and offering free US shipping on most orders, I must now start charging shipping on all orders. I loved offering free shipping, but unfortunately the USPS keeps increasing their fees! Also, I will no longer be able to ship outside the US.

There is a ray of hope, however, as at this point I will not charge the full USPS fee to help make shipping a little more bearable for you, dear customer. Thank you for your understanding.

Welcome to Michele's Glass Bead Treasures! The hand made pieces are a result of my combined enjoyment of needlework, "little" things, sea glass, stained glass windows, flowers, and sparkling jewelry. All of these items are hand stitched and are of my own design using beautiful glass (some of them vintage!) and crystal beads. Also, I have on this site vintage finds found while visiting thrift shops, estate sales, and other fun places that I think others may want and enjoy (and that I can't bear to break apart!).

Had fun making these embellished button card ornaments in preparation for this fall’s local craft shows. Between the shows, the ones that haven’t and/or don’t sell will remain available in my shop.
Had fun experimenting with some different materials recently. I especially love the pretty plaids. Don’t they make you think of fall?
It’s September and time to cozy up with a cup of tea and a good book. How about this fall-themed vintage jewelry bookmark to hold your place when you’re ready for a second cup of tea?

Handmade and Repurposed Beauties

Welcome to Michele's Glass Bead Treasures! The hand made pieces are a result of my combined enjoyment of needlework, "little" things, sea glass, stained glass windows, flowers, antique buttons, and sparkling jewelry. All of these items are hand stitched and are of my own design using beautiful incorporating in many things glass (some of them vintage!) and crystal beads. Also, I have on this site vintage finds found while visiting thrift shops, estate sales, and other fun places that I think others may want and enjoy (and that I can't bear to break apart!). For those vintage jewelry pieces that are broken but are still beautiful, I like to give them new life by incorporating them into a new piece of jewelry or using them to embellish items for the home.

Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
I don't accept returns, exchanges, or cancellations
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
Returns and exchange details
All sales are final.

1) Vintage/Antique: Many of my pieces are vintage and/or antique--that means they are old, have been used, and show signs of age. I describe the items well. Please do not expect the pieces to be pristine. Other than very gentle and minimal cleaning if necessary, I do not clean and/or polish vintage jewelry and other items but rather leave that for the purchaser to do.

2) Handmade/Embellished: Most pieces are one-of-a-kind. Much thought and design have gone into my hand made pieces and vintage jewelry art work, so please kindly DO NOT COPY my designs, ideas, or creations. Thank you for your understanding!

Should in the rare event I happen to allow a return:

1) It must be returned in the original packaging that I shipped it to you in (i.e. same box) within two weeks of your correspondence to me/my response to you; otherwise, the return agreement is not valid, and I will not accept the return and not refund your money.
2) The item(s) must be returned in the same condition as sent--no parts missing, no broken parts due to neglect on your part, etc. or I will not accept the return and will not refund your money.
3) You must inform me the item(s) have been sent and provide a tracking number.
4) I will not refund any shipping expenses.


Once an item or items have been shipped and I have sent you notification with a tracking number attesting to this, I am not responsible for its physical delivery to you since that part is completely out of my hands. I cannot offer a refund for nondelivery.
Payment
PLEASE READ:

1) Credit cards and Paypal are accepted, and payment with your credit card is safe and secure through Etsy and Paypal.

2) Payment deadline: Payment must be made within two days of commitment to purchase OR you must "convo" me within 24 hours telling me on what day you will pay me. If these criteria are not met, I will cancel your order. I am willing to reserve an item or items for you only if you tell me by what date you will order and pay for the item(s). I have the right to cancel an order for any reason at any time.

3) Cancellations: If you wish to cancel an order, please contact me within 24 hours of purchase.

4) Thank you for the offers, but I do not barter.

5) RESERVED LISTINGS: I am happy to reserve items for you, but you must communicate with me. If you do not tell me a specific time frame in which you will make a purchase and/or do not respond to my "convos" asking if you are still interested in an item, I will keep the RESERVED status on the listing(s) for two (2) weeks. If you do not purchase after two weeks with non response or two weeks after the original specific time frame of purchase you gave me, I will assume you are no longer interested in the item(s) and will take the RESERVED status off so that others may purchase.
Shipping
Shipping to US addresses only. Shipping is stated on each listing and as a courtesy to you will usually be less than what I actually pay for the shipping cost. Should there be any shipping fee overages charged to you, I will refund any overage of $1 or more.

A tracking number will be put on the package, and the number will be sent to you for assurance that shipment has indeed been made and so that you may track the package's whereabouts. Neither insurance nor priority mail is available unless you are willing to pay extra for it. I will send item(s) via the USPS either Media, First Class, or Priority mail (at my discretion depending on cost differences and what is being shipped) within 3-5 business days after payment.

Once the package has been shipped, it is totally out of my hands. I cannot guarantee that it will arrive and cannot refund your money, especially if the USPS confirms via the tracking number that it has been delivered.
Privacy
I will not collect or sell any of your private information. I will not contact you unless you have asked me to.
