Trading things I love, create and gather from around the world!

Olá! Hello… Hola! Namaste~
I’m Lilly, owner, curator, photographer, color-loving, shipper, explorer, and hoarder of NatureBeads. I’m Brazilian, born in the heart of the Amazon rainforest, living the American dream.

“NatureBeads” is a hodgepodge of everything I love. Beads from artisans in South America, things we find in our trips all over the world, pieces we create ourselves.

Being from Brazil, especially the Amazon is a gift that makes you feel like an explorer. I grew up seeing nature, crazy colors, animals of all kinds and loving-happy people. My childhood was full of myths and legends, colors and folklore. As I grew up, the admiration by the natives, nature, animals, colors and the world as a whole grew as well.

I was in my teens when I started making jewelry, an attempt to put back together with a bracelet I had bought years before. It was made with Acai beads and braided in a very special way. I tried to fix it for several days and when I finally figured it out, I knew I was into something! The need of extra money made me work hard and seek beyond my knowledge. I scoured the streets and I started to hang out around the native marked searching for interesting things to use on my own creations. While I was there, I used to help the natives with the tourists passing by and became friends with “Caramuru”, a native of the tribe “Sateré-Mawé”.

During my college time, I was blessed to be part of great research projects, to meet people from different countries, to travel and see the world at large. I spent time in the jungle for weeks at a time doing research and teaching the locals. I was often gifted with bark, seeds, scales and other things I used for my creations. I moved to the USA in 2006 and I brought along my bad pliers, some beads, strings, and handmade native jewelry. No friends or family around gave me plenty of time to do something and I decided to start a website. Now, that was the tricky part since I barely spoke English. It was difficult to get it going, I did not understand business or photography, my English was a disaster and I was not even able to answer the phone afraid to speak to people. I just did not know what I was doing.

I was lucky to sell something from time to time and I happily run to the closet to dig out a dusty box with all my goods. In March of 2008, my beads landed the cover of BeadStyle Magazine and the business grew overnight! I went back to South America, met great artisans and started developing a line of natural beads. "Tagua nut Beads” were not very popular back then, but after the magazine the demand was so great we could not fulfill our orders. Our artisans and I continued testing, cutting and dyeing pieces until we finally got the science of making beads figured out.

When I joined Etsy in June 2008, I was happy to find a place I could be inspired and learn. It took me a while to get it going, but thanks to Google translate I was able to list my products. It made me so happy, I felt I could rule the world with my broken English. We have been featured in different magazines, our Etsy shop never stops growing and it has become my full-time job. Etsy has given me the opportunity to learn from my cough, to get inspired, to grow and see things differently. The world has so much to give and I hope to be able to share as much as I can in this lifetime.

I hope you can delight your eyes in the things we create and have gathered along our journey.

Thank you for stopping by and wish you an amazing day!

Frequently asked questions
Wholesale availability

Wholesale options are available as we try our best to source from the makers. Please message us with your inquires.

Discount options are based on products purchased in BULK. Each product has a different breakdown as they all cost a different amount, so PLEASE email me a screen shot of your shopping cart or a list of the products you're looking for and we will work from there. :))

Gift wrapping and packaging

All orders are shipped in beautiful colored tissue, packaged carefully and ready to be gifted. If you DO NOT need the receipt in the order, please leave us a note during the check out or message us directly!

International Shipping / Import Duty Calculator

If you're buying from a different country, most likely that you will have to pay duty fees. Here's a link for a Duty Fee Calculator and you can take a look at the estimated fee that your package may incur.

http://www.dutycalculator.com/new-import-duty-and-tax-calculation

We are legally obligated to accurately fill out customs information. We do not honor requests to put another amount on the label. Marking your order as a "gift" does not circumvent this.

Customers are responsible for any VAT, duty, or other customs fees/taxes applicable. Items sent back due to fees not being paid will be refunded the item cost but not the shipping. If you would like the items to be re-shipped, additional shipping charges apply.

Response Time

I'm one woman running this show, so please understand that it does take time to go through all messages.

I try very hard to reply to all questions quickly, but it is only 1 of me responding to all the messages. Sometimes I am not on my desk or away from my phone, so please be patient and allow me 24-48 hours to reply to your messages. Thanks for understanding!

Exchanges & Cancellations / Can I return my order?

Maybe. See below a few quick facts.

1. We take returns on a case by case basis. We no longer take returns due to health & sanitation regulations.

2. Items 100% NOT returnable include chains, leather, cording, ribbon, lace, or anything that we cut upon receiving your order or that we custom made for you.

3. In cases where the item sent is incorrect or damaged, we will arrange return shipping and will either replace or refund depending on item availability and buyer's preference.

4. If we do accept your return, we will give you a return number, returns have a 20% re-stocking fee. It takes a lot of time to gather them and even more to put them back in place, re-stocking fee is also applied to cover your free shipping. Sorry! :(

Waxed Polyester Cording Colors

Do you combine shipping on multiple items?

YES! Etsy will bundle all your items in one shipping fee only. The fee you will see during the checkout is the fee charged according to the exact weight of the items in your shopping cart. There are no hidden fees; we charge you exactly what USPS charges us.

General Shipping Info

Our base shipping option is USPS First Class. We also offer Priority and Express options at check out. We do not ship items in letter envelopes. :((

We ship to the address the customer provides. If the address is incorrect or an old address please notify us within 6 hours so we can correct it.

Orders shipped to the wrong address are not eligible for a refund. We suggest contacting the current resident or landlord and providing them forwarding information.

If the items make it back to us and you would still like them you will be charged additional shipping. If not, you will be refunded the item cost but not the shipping cost. Once the package is traveling, consider the label used and USPS won't refund it.

Color Variation

We try very hard to photograph the item and display its true color. BUT, it's true that color will vary from monitor to monitor because they simply display colors differently. Some product lines, such as Acai Beads, Deer Lace, and Leather Straps have dye lot differences from batch to batch so the color variance is expected.
