About LandKbeads

Sales 160
On Etsy since 2011

We take pride in designing and hand making beautiful and affordable jewelry for every occasion.

I now live in Mexico! Specifically the Yucatan peninsula in a small port town called Chelem. It's beautiful here.

I started making beaded lanyards while working as a software engineer contractor for the DoD. I had to wear my I.D. badge and electronic key in plain sight above my waist. I hated attaching it to my collar so I needed something like a necklace to hang them on and it needed to be pretty. After several prototypes and a few mishaps (I'm sorry for the janitor in the Pentagon that had to clean up the seed beads from one of these mishaps!) I settled on a design that worked and didn't break easily. I wore the same lanyard for many years with no issues.

I can also provide you with website help. I have been coding professionally since 1981 and have been creating websites since 2004.

Frequently asked questions
Why am I sending a return to the US and not Mexico

I live in Chelem, Yucatan, Mexico. It's a small fishing village on the Gulf of Mexico. There is no door to door postal service here. The nearest post office is 20 minutes away and while they will hold mail for a month they do not contact me that I have mail waiting. It can take anywhere from 2-6 weeks for packages to reach that post office.

It's simply easier and cheaper to have my customers ship returns via regular mail to my son's home in the US.

This is why it's imperative that you contact me BEFORE you ship your return back to me.

Thank you for understanding this.

hand-made

/han(d)ˈmād/
adjective
adjective: handmade; adjective: hand-made

Made by hand, not by machine, and typically therefore of superior quality.

What is VAT?

Value Added Tax, or VAT, means two different things. It can mean the sales tax that a seller has to charge a customer for local sales, and it can mean customs and import taxes.

Within my shop when Etsy says that VAT is included they mean sales taxes. The buyer is still responsible for any customs and import taxes levied on imported goods to their country.
