When I became a lampworker I had no idea I that would also have to learn about terms and conditions for distance selling, how to take reasonable photos of beads, how to build a website and so on. No just getting up and 'playing'.
Basically, the customer, you, is protected by law, I have no intention of upsetting the law, and certainly not my customers if I can help it. I have set out Terms and Conditions below, (updated June 2014) they aren't cheery or entertaining, hopefully the beads I make will be. I hope you like browsing through my work.

I do what I can to accurately describe the items for sale, and attempt to take the best photographs of my work possible in order to help you to decide on your final purchase. Computer screens are not all the same, (mine's a Mac) so resolution and colour rendering of monitors need to be taken into consideration when comparing the item to the online image.
All my beads are kiln annealed for strength and durability. I'd like to have happy customers and will endeavour to do what I can in order to achieve this.

The preferred online payment method for goods is via Paypal. You don't have to have a Paypal account in order to use the service.
You must ensure that your personal details, including the address for delivery, are complete and accurate.

Commissions and Personalised Items -

For commissions and personalised items please contact me to discuss your requirements.

I do not offer refunds for personalised items. Please ensure that at the time of ordering all of the information you provide is accurate and correct.
 The cooling off period and right to cancel do not cover contracts for goods made to your specification (custom-made).


Delivery costs are clearly displayed before finalising your order.
Delivery of the products will take place at the delivery address entered on your order.

I always use UK Mail 'First Class' delivery, post sent through this service in the UK will often arrive 'next day' and certainly should within five days (according to the post office).

International and European orders are sent by First Class Airmail, if you require a trackable service you can choose a 'signed for and tracked' postage upgrade in the cart.
PLEASE NOTE - post to non-EU countries can take up to 3 weeks to arrive!

I am sure you will appreciate that once I have handed your order over to the post office, it is in their hands and I can only quote them on how long they say it will take to get your order to you.

I aim to ship within 48 hours of receipt of your order. Where this is not possible due to volume of orders, weekends or bank holidays, all orders will be shipped within 72 hours of receipt of the order and payment.

The cost of the item, postage and packaging, is clearly shown before purchase. Please be aware that if you are ordering from overseas, your item may be subject to additional customs taxes and charges, over which I have no control, and am not accountable for.
