About

One Bead at a Time

I first discovered Etsy back in 2008, a couple of years after my jewelry creating began. At first, I was pretty clueless as to what to do in terms of selling anything. I had started a website http://artisanbeadsplus.com, which still exists, but was not practical for selling.

My jewelry making eventually led me to creating beads. I started off creating earthenware, and graduated to porcelain. I also have the opportunity three to four times a year to create wood-fired beads. That is a very unique opportunity since there are limited wood-fire kilns in the US and I happen to have an artist husband who built one on our land http://splitfirepottery.com.

From my ceramic bead making, I shifted into enameling beads, which is also something I love to do. I am an artist who stays interested and motivated by switching it up every now that then. That is why you will find a variety of items in my shop.

I believe in quality. I am very conscientious about everything that I make. My wish is for the buyers to open their package after it arrives home and be thrilled with what they have purchased. I charge fair prices for the time and effort that I put into my bead making and jewelry making. I hope that when you receive your beads, you will agree.

Shipping
SHIPPING TIMES: Other than “made to order” items, I will ship on the day following the your order. I strive to get my orders out as quickly as possible.

INTERNATIONAL: I will refund any significant overcharges after I ship your item. I am finding that I can't really average any overseas shipping as I can in the US. I'm sorry for any inconvenience.

RECEIPTS: If you need a printed receipt, please convo me with that request. I am trying to cut down on the amount of ink and paper (being green) that I'm using. Thanks.
Additional policies and FAQs
I mainly use commercial glazes sold by Mayco and Coyote. On occasion, I purchase glazes made in a ceramics supplier in Syracuse, New York. I do not purchase glazes that list lead.

I glaze the wood fire beads with glazes that my husband makes. They do not contain lead.

Please remember that beads are not intended for children.

Thank-you.
