'Adornments for dreams' is my umbrella-trademark for all my handmade jewellery. In this shop you will find 'easy to wear' stretch-bracelets and necklaces, made for busy women and girls of all ages. Many are completely metal-free.

Looking for earrings to match these stretch-pieces? There are also colour-coordinated earrings to be found here too! I used genuine, solid sterling silver, gold-filled, brass or copper findings. All are lead and nickel free. If you want screw-back findings for non-pierced ears, I have them in sterling silver and brass. Just write a convo or a note in the 'message to seller-box'.

About

How Pärlträdet (parltradet), 'The Bead Tree', got started

It was in November of 2007 that I discovered a tiny shop that sold beautiful glass beads right here in my home town, Norrköping. It was run by an ethusiastic married couple who had a eye for what to import and a knack for displaying their wonderful finds. Silly me. It hadn't occurred to me that I could make my own jewellery, inspite of the fact that I had worked within the visual arts for many years. But why not?

I became hooked on a new hobby - beading - and made necklaces and bracelets as much as I could in my spare time until I decided to try my hand at selling some of what I had made.

Unfortunately, the wonderful beadstore had to close because of a conflict with their landlord. Which is a pity, because it was such a bright spot in our otherwise drab shopping district. The woman who ran it continued to sell beads online until only very recently (December 2015) But even that has come to an end. ( See "Madams Pärlor" as the first Shop Website under "Related Links" to the lower right..)

Anyway, at this time, I thought I would try selling on the Internet and eventually it was suggested that I try Etsy.

Etsy turned out to be a great place to start a small business. Everyone - big and small - has a chance here on Etsy, I have learned so much about different kinds of jewellery-making techniques. It's almost like a school. I have also 'met' many interesting people - craftsmen, artisans and artists, and learned so much by looking at their work and shops and asking questions. I have also purchased items from other jewellery artists, as well as tools and beads from many of the fantastic suppliers on Etsy. But let me return to my little shop.

My idea for Pärlträdet was simple: stretchy necklaces and bracelets that are easy to put on and take off. And even earrings to match. But not only this. Women and girls who do not have pierced ears should be able to wear fashionable and comfortable earrings. That is why all of my earring designs can be converted from hooks to screwbacks or clips. I also have different findings for pierced ears, genuine sterling silver, surgical steel, as well as brass findings. Every item description states what kind of metal that is used.

I am still stocking my shop, so please come back often. Don't be shy about asking questions.

Best wishes,
Tina

    Owner, Designer, Photographer

    I started stringing glass beads in November of 2007 and made a lot of beaded jewellery before deciding to open this shop. I've gone on to make jewellery in other materials, but parltradet still sells stretchies. See link list for my other shops.

  • Elisabet, my daughter

    Assistant, Designer, Owner

    Elisabet was only four years old when I started beading. She is eleven years old today and has her own blog and makes videos about make-up on You-Tube. Elisabet has promised to feature a video about my jewellery here soon.

  • Erik, my son

    Assistant, Designer, Owner

    For a boy, Erik has shown an unusually strong inventive ability for jewellery design. Inspired by tribal peoples around the world he incorporates found-items in his own necklaces.

    Here are our three cats. My oldest cat is Matilda. The kittens, Vanessa and Lovis, are Elisabet's cats. We love them dearly, but when it's time for precision work, we let them wait in another room, as they think of beads only as toys to play with.

Welcome to parltradet, which means "Bead Tree" or "Pearl Tree" in Swedish. "Beautiful and easy to wear jewelry" means that each piece should not only be pleasing to the eye, but also be easy to to put on and take off. For these stretch bracelets and necklaces I use 'PowerCord' elastic beading cord. If you prefer wire and clasps, visit my new shop Tinord (http//:etsy.com/shop/tinord)

I make earrings to match these stretch pieces.For earrings I use lead and nickel free metals such as copper brass and sterling silver earwires and screw back findings sterling silver.

I like making jewelry and hope that other people will be happy with my products. I test my different prototypes of pieces of jewelry on myself and ask other women what they like or don't like about them.

I make necklaces that should be lightweight and uncomplicated. My "Elegant Elastic Chokers" are made with busy women or active teenagers in mind. They are easy to put on and take off. They are small enough for little girls too.

Take a measuring tape and see if the necklace size is right for you. If not, I can change it. Just write a note at check out if you need a size that differs slightly from what is stated in the description. If you want a very much larger or smaller necklace that would require a possible change in price, please write me a convo first so that I can make a special listing for you.

******SEARCH HELP***** Did you know that you can search my store by color? Or the length of a necklace or bracelet in inches? Just type what you are looking for in my store's search box and you'll simplify your search.

Since only ten different sections are allowed, this search tool recovers the sections that I have had to remove. Write "hearts" and you will get a section of every item that I had in the section "Hearts/Hjartan". If you write the word "pearl" you will see every item that has freshwater pearls in it. If you write the word "stretch" you will get both bracelets and necklaces that are strung on elastic cord.

Till svenska kunder om "Pärlträdet":
Välkommen till parltradet eller "Pärlträdet" som min lilla firma för handgjorda smycken egentligen heter. "Beautiful and easy to wear jewelry" betyder att jag försöker göra inte bara vackra utan också lättburna, lättanvända smycken som passar stressade yrkeskvinnor, kräsna tonåringar, såväl som lekfulla småflickor. Många av dessa elastiska hals- och armband är vattentåliga och har inga metalldelar. Läs noggrant beskrivningen på varan du önska köpa för att veta eventuella avvikelser beträffande material.

Jag gör matchande örhängen med bly- och nickelfria metalldelar såsom mässing och koppar samt äkta silver.
Om du föredrar smycken med metallås, besök gärna min nya butik Tinord.
[http://etsy.com/shop/tinord]

Jag tycker om att göra smycken och vill göra andra glada genom mina alster. I mitt sortiment bör det finnas något för de flesta smakriktningar och åldrar. Tag fram måttbandet och se om halsbandet passar! Jag gör ändringar efter önskemål. Skriv!

******SÖKHJÄLP***** Visste du att du kan söka efter en viss färg i Pärlträdets butik? Eller längden på ett halsband? Skriv bara in sökordet i sökrutan och klicka på "search". Det underlättar sökandet.
Eftersom man bara kan ha tio olika sektioner kan jag inte ha alla kategorier som stående sektioner. Men om man till exempel skriver in ordet "hearts" får man fram allt som ingick i sektionen "Hearts/hjartan" som fanns tidigare. Om du skriver in ordet "pearl" kommer du att få se alla smycken som är gjorda av sötvattenpärlor. Om du skriver ordet "stretch" kommer du att få fram allt - båda arm- och halsband - som är gjort med elastisk tråd

To all international customers.

The best way to pay is through PAYPAL. If this is not a good method for you please write to me.

För närvarande är det bästa sättet att betala genom PAYPAL. Observera att PAYPAL kommer att lägga 25% moms på priset som står vid varje artikel som ska skickas inom Sverige, och till Finland, Danmark och de övriga EU länderna. Det betyder att varje halsband, armband eller par örhängen som skickas till Finland, Danmark och de andra EU länderna, är 25% dyrare än det som står i butiken.

Ni som bor på Island och i Norge, såväl som 19 andra europeiska länder utanför EU, betalar priset som det står vid beskrivningen.

Skriv gärna ett e-brev (ett "convo") om ni önskar betala på något annat sätt än med PAYPAL.

Shipping
My aim is to ship your order within 2 days of payment.
I wrap the jewelry in jeweler's tissue and put it in a bubble-plastic envelope. I put earrings and other pressure-sensitive items in a little cardboard box before putting them in the bubble-mailer so that they don't get flattened on their way to you. Please let me know if your order does not arrive within a reasonable amount of time or if anything is damaged in shipping.
I will ship to the address listed with Etsy unless you tell me otherwise. I can gift-wrap and send directly to another address if you request this in a convo.
------
Jag eftersträvar att skicka beställda varor inom 2 dagar efter betalningen. Jag skickar smyckena i juvulerares silkespapper i ett vadderat kuvert. Jag lägger örhängen och andra tryckkänsliga föremål i en liten pappask inne i det vadderade kuvertet så att de inte blir tillplattade under transporten. Säg till om försändelsen inte kommer fram eller är på något sätt skadad vid ankomsten.
Jag skickar till adressen som står på fakturan om jag inte får en annan adress i ett e-brev. Jag kan slå in smycket i present förpackning och skicka till en annan adress om jag får begäran som ett skriftligt meddelande.
Refunds and Exchanges
If you decide to return or exchange something please tell me as soon as possible or at the latest within 30 days from the date of payment. In case of refunds and exchanges the buyer pays for all shipping. The product must not be used and is to be returned in its original packaging.

Life is not always as we plan. Write and tell me what happened and we can work things out together.
------
Alla varor som ska returneras eller bytas måste vara oanvända och skickas tillbaka i originalförpackningen. Returfrakten i båda riktningarna bekostas av kunden. Hör gärna av er så fort ni kan. Öppetköp gäller 30 dagar från och med betalningsdatumet.

Jag är medveten om att livet inte alltid är som man har tänkt sig. Skriv och berätta så kommer vi överens om en bra lösning.
Additional policies and FAQs
I want you to be happy with your purchase. My goal is to describe each piece of jewellery as accurately as I can in the hope that no one will be disappointed. Please write if there is a problem or if anything is not clear. I'll do what I can to help.

REVIEW OR WHAT WAS CALLED "FEEDBACK" EARLIER:
As a buyer I write a review as soon as I can. As a seller I like to know that the item has arrived safely. and that the buyer is satisfied with the transaction. If you are not happy with your purchase in any way, please write to me first, before leaving a neutral or negative review. Through these reviews and recommendations a sellers builds his or her shop's reputation.

WHAT IF SOMETHING BREAKS?
Please write to me. I can repair jewelry that I have made myself. Gather together the pieces and send them to me at the address at the end of this message under "Seller Information". I will not charge for the repair work, but you will have to pay for postage.

STRETCH-JEWELLERY:
Something to think about when it comes to the beaded elastic choker necklaces and bracelets: I do my best to tie and hide the knots. The clear elastic cord beading cord, "Power Cord", is also of a very good quality. But please do not treat the necklaces as if they were sling-shots. When it comes to the necklaces, put both of your hands inside the necklace and try to stretch it evenly when putting it over your head or removing it.

By mistake, I have dropped some of these necklaces on a hardwood floor here at home without anything breaking. But I would not drop these glass and crystal beads on a stone floor or a concrete pavement/sidewalk or stone surface. They could break. Just so you know!

EARRINGS:
Slowly, but surely, I am adding new pairs of earrings. The parts of all of these earrings that touch skin are made of sterling silver. Please let me know if you would like another kind of earring finding. Not everyone has pierced ears. I can change any design with ear wires to screwback findings for non-pierced ears.
When you buy a pair of earrings from me, no one else has ever worn the finding closest to your skin. It is new and unused.

JEWELLERY FOR CHILDREN:
Erik's Treasure Trove. When my son Erik was just seven years old, we started to put together a "line" of jewellery for fun, called "Erik's Treasure Trove". The idea was to list playful pirate jewellery in a smaller size for children, that Erik and I had designed and made together. Erik had a lot of interesting ideas and I would have helped him realize them. But at the moment Erik is 14 years old and is living with his father in another area. Such is life sometimes. For the time being, let's put "Erik's Teasure Trove " on hold.

When we do eventually feature jewellery for children, please note that by the word "children" we do not mean babies, toddlers or children who could harm themselves by trying to eat our jewelry and choke on glass beads. (Approximately seven years and up is probably alright.) Please use good judgement for the sake of your child.

Jag vill att du ska vara glad och lycklig med ditt köp.
Målsättningen är att vara så tydlig som möjligt när jag beskriver varje smycke och se till att du som köparen blir nöjd. Är det något som verkar gått på tok eller är oklart, skriv och berätta. Fråga gärna. Jag kommer att göra allt vad jag kan för att lösa eventuella problem.

Angående "Reviews" (=Recensioner):
Som kund, brukar jag skriva en recension så snart jag har fått varan. Som säljare vill jag gärna veta att varan har kommit fram och att kunden är nöjd med sitt köp. Vänligen skriv först till mig innan du skriver en neutral eller negativ "review" (recension). Det är genom dessa recensioner som säljaren bygger upp sitt renommé.

HUR GÖR JAG OM NÅGOT GÅR SÖNDER?
Skriv och berätta! Samla ihop det som är kvar av smycket och skicka till postadressen:
Christina Nordeman
Sankt Persgatan 37
60233 Norrköping

Jag lagar utan avgift smycken som jag själv gjort, men kunden får stå för frakten till och från mig.

OM ELASTISKA SMYCKEN:
Något att tänka på när det gäller de elastiska arm- och halsbanden: Jag knyter och gömmer knutarna på bästa möjliga sätt. Den genomskinliga elastiska tråden "Power Cord" är tålig och anses vara av mycket god kvalitet. Men misshandla inte arm- och halsbanden! Använd inte dem som en sorts slangbåge! När det gäller halsbanden, för in bägge händerna inuti halsbandet och tänja varsamt, försiktigt och så jämt som möjligt när du trär på eller trär av det över huvudet.

Visserligen har jag själv oavsiktligt tappat flera av dessa elastiska glashalsband på parketgolvet härhemma, utan att något har gått sönder. Men det är inte säkert att dessa glaspärlor och kristaller klarar av att blir nersläppta på ett stengolv eller ute på en gata eller en trottoar av betong. De kan gå sönder. Nu vet du det!

OM ÖRHÄNGEN:
Sakta men säkert kommer fler och fler par örhängen och alla metalldelar som vidrör hud är av bly- och nyckelfria metalldelar, oftast äkta silver 925/1000 - för samtliga modeller.

Säg till om Du önskar andra fattningar än örkrokar. Jag kan byta ut örkrokar mot öronskruvar för den som inte har håltagna örsnibbar. Skriv bara vid beställningen innan jag skickar iväg varan!

När du köper ett par örhängen från Pärlträdet har ingen annan använt de hud nära metalldelarna. De är helt nya och oanvända.

OM SMYCKEN FÖR BARN:
Om Erik's Treasure Trove/Eriks sjörövarskattkista. När sonen Erik var sju år fick vi för oss att vi skulle göra särskilda sjörövarsmycken för barn och Erik skulle brstå som rådgivare och smakdomare. Men tiden har gått och vi har inte hunnit tillverka så mycket skattkistasmycken. Tyvärr. Erik är nu fjorton år och bor hos sin far på annan ort.

Men om vi eventuellt skulle lägga upp några barnsmycken vill vi påpeka att vad vi menar med ordet "barn" är inte spädbarn, bebisar eller dagisbarn, utan barn som är minst cirka sju år. Vi ber föräldrar om att använda sunt förnuft så att inga småbarn kvävs av att försöka äta glaspärlor eller andra små smyckesdelar.

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

Yes, I can do some custom and personalized work. But anything engraved or stamped with a personal name or text is not returnable after purchase.

Sizing details

I usually offer several sizes of bracelets and necklaces. In some cases, I can make a piece of jewellery to a special size. Sometimes this is not possible because following a pattern does not permit all sizes.

Care instructions

As I have mentioned elsewhere, jewellery made with glass beads can break or crack if dropped or thrown on a hard surface such as stone or concrete. Elastic necklaces and bracelets should not be played with like sling-shots.

Some seed beads, such as colour-lined or silver-lined glass beads, loose their colour if submersed in water. The silver-lined seed beads in some of my early designs, can become transparent glass beads if dipped in water. This is the reason why I started making bracelets with accents of brass metal beads. They are more waterproof.

Gift wrapping and packaging

I will be showing more gift-wrapping options. I have fabric pouches, little tins, as well as boxes.

Wholesale availability

I will sell wholesale to those who offer to purchase larger quanities. But this does not happen automatically. You have to write and ask.

I do not lend jewellery to sellers, only to have it returned unsold to me. (And in one case, the reseller wanted me to pay the return postage too!) If you want to resell my pieces in a shop or at a fair, you will have to purchase them outright and take the risk yourself that they may or may not be sold.

The only exception to this rule would be a local seller in my own home town, Norrköping. This is because there would no shipping involved. The high cost of postage and shipping around the world makes my jewellery unnecessarily expensive.
