About

Jewelry Inspired by Ethnic Beauty and Anthropology

Macchiato Jewelry specializes in unique and affordable ethnic style jewelry with handmade beads. For my designs I use ethnic beads that I have been collecting for many years from all over the world. As a social anthropologist I have been traveling a lot ;-).

In my shop you will find modest everyday necklaces as well as eye-catching statement necklaces for a special occasion. I also have a collection of easy-to-wear bracelets and tribal style earrings.

In the past I used to search for ethnic style jewelry that is affordable and that I could wear to the office or to a party. Because modest pieces with unique beads were hard to find I started with the creation of my own designs. I opened my shop four years ago and I am excited that it is growing ever since.

I consider handcrafted beads and pendants as precious pieces of art. Rustic and playful. They have their own unique character and show beautiful natural imperfections that are the result of traditional handmade processes. Puzzling the beads together to create an elegant necklace is a challenging creatieve process.
I love the fact that beads from Africa and Asia are still handmade of recycled, natural or locally produced material, like pieces of glass, bone, resin or metal. Besides this material I also discovered some great ceramic artists and I make use of the impressive work of a traditional blacksmith.
You will find no plastics in my designs.

In the descriptions I will tell you more about the fascinating beads.

I hope you will find an interesting piece that will make you feel special!
Thank you for visiting my shop!

If you want me to create a custom necklace for you, please don't hesitate to contact me! I pay great attention to details. I will assure you that your piece will be unique, made with beautiful and high quality materials.

Payment
Orders will be send after I receive your payment.

I offer the following means of payment:
- Direct Checkout through Etsy, by using your credit card. This means you don't need a Paypal account.
- PayPal
- Bank Transfer, preferably within the Netherlands. A Worldwide bank transfer means that it might take a week before I receive your payment, and therefore your order will be send much later.
Shipping
1. All orders will take 2-3 business days to be processed after receiving your payment. My items will be well packed and send in a padded envelope with regular mail. Because I care for our environment, you could receive your purchase in a recycled envelope or carton box.

2.
- To keep the shipping costs affordable, all jewelry will be shipped with regular international mail of PostNL. Please NOTE that this shipping method is not insured, not registered and without a tracking code. In four years time I never lost an envelope.
- During Check-Out you could choose the option of shipment with a tracking code. The costs are for the buyer.
- Larger items will be send as a package with international mail of PostNL with a Track&Trace code.

3. Shipping time:
Shipping time to the US / Worldwide: approx. 10 to 20 working days
Shipping time to EU countries: approx. 5 - 10 working days
Shipping time to non-EU countries: approx. 10 working days

4. Shipping costs
Shipping costs are calculated by using the standard rates of the Dutch postal services PostNL from the Netherlands (Europe). Unfortunately the shipping costs for a parcel are relatively high from the Netherlands to Worldwide / US. This is due to the standard rates and I don't get any profit from it.

5. Customs
As I am not familiar with the policy of imported goods of your country, I am not responsible for any extra fees occurring during the transportation. All countries have different import & export customs fees. You could check at your local post office if you have any doubts.

6. If an item can not be imported to your country or you are not authorized to import such kind of items, I am not responsible for any fees, including return shipping costs or customs fee etc.
Additional policies and FAQs
Please note: I am trying hard to reflect the actual colors in my pictures. However, computer monitors vary in colors shown, so you could expect slight variations in colors of the real items.
