Moonraker Lampwerks - Whimsical and Fun Glass Beads!

Melting glass and making beads since 2002!

Each bead is made one by one by me in my studio, just for you, using a torch and tools and then kilned for durability.

I started lampworking by taking a simple class and lots and lots (and LOTSSSSSSS) of torch time and practice. Glass 'how to' questions are always welcome - I don't mind sharing how anything is made. Just drop me a line and I'll help out if I can.

    I dabble in a lot of other mediums, not just glass. You can keep up with my current projects on my blog.

Shop policies

Last updated on April 18, 2016
Each bead is handmade by me in my studio in Connecticut and properly kiln-annealed for durability. Bead holes are properly cleaned, carefully strung and packaged for each order.

Please allow up to 5-7 days BEFORE your package ships if the item you ordered is listed as 'Made To Order'. Those items are created specifically for you after payment is made and, as a result, take a few days to be finished up and put in the mail.

Accepted payment methods

Paypal Mastercard Visa American Express Discover Apple Pay Klarna Giftcard
Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
Full sets or single beads that you don't wish to keep can be returned for a full refund with the EXCEPTION of custom designs you had made specifically to your needs.

No refund will be issued unless the beads are returned in good faith and within a reasonable amount of time (30 days).

In the case of an item being broken in transit, please message me within 14 days of receipt with a picture of the breakage. For US customers, a new one will be made up and shipped out to you free of charge. For international customers, the item in question must be returned whereupon a full refund (including the original shipping charge) will be issued.
Payment can be made online using Paypal (which accepts all credit cards/e-checks) or by regular mail by money order ONLY. I do not accept personal checks through the mail at this time.

You may only request that I cancel your transaction IF your beads have not yet been made (which usually takes at least a couple days after payment). Otherwise the sale is binding and will only be canceled at my discretion.
One shipping fee covers your whole order, regardless of size/weight. I will pay the difference if it costs more.

All shipping fees listed are for first class shipping. Shipping within the United States includes free delivery confirmation and tracking.

I am not responsible for any customs fees you may be charged by your country's Customs Department. Please be aware that all customs slips on your package are filled out in detail as 'merchandise', in accordance with federal law in the United States.

An email is automatically sent out with the shipping/tracking information once your package ships. If you do not receive it, please feel to message me to send it again to an additional email address or you can always find the info on your payment page in your personal Paypal account.
Additional policies and FAQs
Custom designs can be requested. In many cases they can be difficult to render in glass (aside from simple color changes or something based on an existing design in my shop) and I will respectfully decline them but I welcome all requests regardless. Each one is carefully considered.

Please note though that fully customized items CAN NOT BE returned.

To EU buyers, my private information is always available upon request; refund policy as stated above applies to all EU sales.
