Announcement   Find finished beadwork as well as kits and patterns for seed beading. I aim for wearable bead art that is both fun to make, sometimes challenging (if you choose an advanced-level design), resulting in a necklace, bracelet or earrings that you will be proud to wear or gift to someone special.

All finished beadwork is original and one-of-a-kind; however I may be willing to make a similar design under some circumstances.

I aim to create jewellery that is wearable and comfortable, and suitable for casual or more formal occasions. I like substantial pieces that are not clunky, elegant without being fragile.

I can't say what draws me in the most, structure or colour, but both are important to me, whether I'm creating a piece of jewellery or a beading kit. I enjoy clever designs, neat endings and beginnings, and as-you-go embellishment where possible, so my kits tend to reflect this. Some of the "cleverness" may result in challenging designs - but I think they're more fun that way! I try to describe the complexity of my kits, but if you need more information, please convo me.

My personal preference for colours is generally a monochromatic palette, however I am not against contrast!


Beading kits contain multi-page detailed instructions in full colour with all beads, thread, needles and findings needed to complete your finished item. If you see a kit for a pattern you like, but the colours don't thrill you, I'd love to have the opportunity to consult with you to create a colour-customized kit for you - just convo me, and I'd be happy to work with you to try to create either a finished item or a kit in colours that you love.

Accepted payment methods

Payment
I accept PayPal only. If you cancel an order before I have shipped it, I will happily refund your full payment.
Shipping
I will ship your purchase the next day; if not, I will convo you to let you know.

Everything is shipped USPS Priority Mail because it gets there more quickly.

If you live outside the US, please convo me so that I can find specific shipping information for where you are - there's always a compromise between speed and cost from here to anywhere else, so I'd like to provide the service YOU want.


NEW! Now shipping to Europe!

As long as your order fits into a small box (about four kits, or lots and lots of earrings, or a few necklaces) and weighs under four pounds, I can ship through the Post Office for $12.95, and it should reach you in 6-10 days. If you order a LOT, and your order is bigger, I will convo you so that there are no surprises.
Refunds and Exchanges
I will replace anything that arrives damaged to the point of unuseability - I won't replace a torn baggie in a kit unless the contents are lost, but I will replace broken beads.

I will exchange or give a refund for finished beadwork if you don't like it in the flesh and you have not yet worn it, but I do not refund shipping costs.

Beading kits are not returnable - but if you don't like the colours, and have not used anything (needle, thread, beads), I will exchange the supplies only for that kit. Shipping costs are the buyer's expense.

Beading patterns are not returnable at all.
Additional policies and FAQs
Interested in a pattern only? Convo me and I'll list it for you.

Want a kit in custom colours? Convo me and I'll make it happen.

Want to custom order something similar to what I have listed? Convo me and we'll talk.

My patterns all come with full support; I'd rather spend time explaining what I should have made clearer than have unhappy pattern-owners. I can't make them better unless I know what's wrong with them.

I do ask that you do not mass-produce items made exactly from my patterns (or so close that people go "Oh yes, I bought that pattern of Charlene's too"). Feel free to sell a few to co-workers (unless you can actually get friends and family to pay too), but please don't set up shop with my designs. I'm more than happy for you to use techniques from my instructions, but hey, let your own creativity run wild and use the techniques in your own designs!

Are you having a hard time with the instructions for a kit? Convo me and we'll talk until I've explained it to your satisfaction.
