Need a bead?

I was a fiber artist who wanted unusual beads for my work. I dabbled in polymer clay but just couldn't get the look I wanted, the opportunity to try glass came up and I have never looked back. Of course, I never did make the beads for my fiber arts, in fact I haven't played with the fiber in awhile. I still fondle the fabric every once in awhile and get the itch to play but I have no room in my studio.

When I opened my Etsy shop I called it "A Fiber Journey" never imagining that I would move into glass. When Etsy changed their programming and I was allowed to change the name of my shop I changed it to JanZart, figuring I could sell any of my artistic endeavors. So far that is only glass but you just never know. I may get some of my fiber art pieces finished and list them.

Until then, enjoy the glass, poke around and see if you can find something you like. If there is a style that you like but would prefer it in another base color be sure to let me know. I have glass in almost every color you could imagine.

I live in central Georgia so the weather can affect when I can torch. In the winter it can be too cold and equally hot in the summer. My torch is in our unfinished basement so I have to open the windows for airflow. I'll get photos of my glass studio up soon so you can get an idea of where I work.

Thanks for reading...

    I have been working with glass for about 10 years. Glass is so elusive, it can not be touched or felt with the hand. It must be manipulated and tricked into new shapes with many tools.

Hi there, I'm so glad you stopped by to check out my glass art beads. Melting glass is intoxicating, taking something that starts out as a solid and turning it into a liquid to form it into art is something that I never thought I would get to try. Now that I have been doing it for three years I can't imagine ever doing anything else.
My shop name "AFiberJourny" was named for my love of fabric and fiber arts, I never imagined that the journey would bring me here. Enjoy the journey, it's what we are here for.

Returns and exchanges
I try to wrap my beads so that there is no movement during shipping, that being said, if one of the beads is broken or not what you expected I will gladly refund the purchase price once the bead(s) are mailed back to me. I want you to love what you buy from me.
I accept most forms of payment including PayPal.
To those of you outside of the US, I'm sorry that I have had to raise my shipping rates for you. The price to ship outside of the US has gone up dramatically. A 2oz package to Canada is now over $7.00 !
I am in Lawrenceville, GA,the beads you see posted are already made and ready to ship.
I endeavor to ship the day after payment has been made on your purchase if at all possible and will notify you what day your beads will be shipped.
If you are an international customer I will send you a convo regarding your shipping date.
Please ensure that the address you are using in Etsy matches the address you use in PayPal as I am not responsible for packages mailed to the incorrect address. In the even that the beads come back to me I will make every effort to contact you for a correct address, however, if they are lost it is not my responsibility.
Additional policies and FAQs
If you see something you like but would like it in another color or style ask, I can probably make it for you.
Custom orders should take no longer than a week to create and mail. I expect payment for custom orders prior to creation, they are returnable but you will need to pay the return shipment price.
