Announcement   Production time is 3 business days on most items. If shipping says 6-7 days and you need it earlier, check with me to see if I have your color or letter in stock.

TRANSIT TIMES: Standard U.S. shipping takes 2-5 days transit. Priority Mail (2-3 days TRANSIT after creation) is available at checkout. Purchasing Priority Mail does not expedite the creation of your order (it just helps the USPS get it there faster!) INTERNATIONAL shipping to Canada and other countries can take 2-6 weeks.

I specialize in memorializing special occasions with jewelry! Personalized gifts are always the best!

What makes this shop different from all the others?
1. Customer service is a priority. This is my full-time job. I work from 7am until 5pm EST Mon-Fri. Most nights and weekends too - but expect slower responses on nights and weekends since I'm trying to enjoy some family time :)

2. Quality components = Quality products. The BEST components are not the cheapest. You get what you pay for. On the children's jewelry, the durable sterling silver heart-shaped lobster clasp is a very nice finishing touch and the sterling extender chain on every bracelet is substantial enough to withstand a toddler's tugs. FRESHWATER PEARLS cost more than Swarovski or Cultura pearls (and last forever!). I use only STERLING SILVER components, including the alphabet beads.

3. Experience and Perfectionism. I have been in business since 2003 and I am an expert at my craft. I have strong relationships with my suppliers who help guide me to the strongest, highest quality components. This is one job that pays to be a perfectionist! No sloppy, hastily made products come out of my shop. Ever.

4. Deluxe Packaging. After you have carefully chosen the perfect gift, you want to make sure it arrives intact and presents itself in a way that will light up the eyes of the recipient. All of my items gift packaged and ready for gift giving. I spare no expense in making sure you are proud of your gift when you present it. The recipient will immediately recognize this gift is something special!

This has to be the most beautiful little bracelet I've ever seen!! Kris was phenomenal from start to finish! I requested to use the Sterling silver dangle initial in place of the stamped heart charm and Kris quickly set up a custom listing for me. Shipping was expeditious and when I opened the package I almost cried!! It was ever so carefully wrapped so beautifully and the bracelet was enclosed inside of a gift box with care instructions. It looks so precious on my baby girl's tiny wrist! I will definitely be a return customer! Thank you so much for such an amazing experience!

About

Meet Kris

I first started making jewelry in 2003 as a fun creative outlet. My daughter was a baby at the time and I realized that there weren't many artisans designing high-quality jewelry for children - everything was created with plastic beads, silver plated metal and just cheap looking and not made to last. After several years of perfecting my craft and researching quality suppliers, I decided to open a shop on Etsy in 2009 as a full-time job and focus mainly on classically styled, high-quality children's jewelry. My business eventually grew to include special adult personalized items and traditional pearl wedding jewelry. There are a lot of jewelry options on Etsy these days but this is a craft where my experience, perfectionism and commitment to quality is absolutely required.

Pickled Beads is a funny name, huh? It came from an inside joke that my late father and I had about pickled beets. I like to think that he is looking down on me, is proud of my little shop, and happy that my kids still love their beets.

{ JEWELRY CARE } The items in my shop are keepsake quality that you'll cherish forever. To keep the sterling silver from tarnishing, store the item in a zip top bag. Do not store in the gift bag or gift box. The best way to avoid tarnish is to wear it!

Also: Please measure for accurate wrist sizes whenever possible. The Child Sizing Chart is the "average" size, but not every child is average in size. I do offer ONE "free" resizing on children's items within 30 days. All I ask for is $5 which covers shipping and handling. Maximum additional length added will be 1".

INTERNATIONAL SHIPMENTS:
{ DUTY }: Many countries collect duty or tariffs on your parcel prior to releasing it to you. These charges are your responsibility and I do not have information regarding the amount or which other countries will collect these taxes.

{ SLOW! } International transit from the US is quite slow, sometimes taking 4-6 weeks to be received. If you have a deadline date sooner than 4 weeks from SHIP date, you may want to reconsider your purchase. Once the parcel leaves my hands, there is absolutely nothing the USPS can do to help me track your package. I am not responsible for lost, stolen or damaged packages.

For example: if you are ordering $150 worth of merchandise, it will cost you $3.65 to insure the shipment. Priority Shipping includes $100 worth of merchandise coverage at no extra charge.
If insurance is not purchased, I cannot be responsible for lost or stolen packages.
Additional policies and FAQs
I love custom orders! Contact me with any special requests.

PLEASE NOTE: All pieces are created by hand, so no two items are identical. That's the beauty of the product! Please allow for slight variances from what is shown in the photos.

Measuring Help: (I measure in US (Imperial) inches) To determine wrist size, you may wrap a string or even dental floss around the wrist and mark the length. Lay this next to a ruler or tape measure to get the size. For children, bracelet should be 1/2" - 3/4" larger than wrist size. Adult sizing can vary 1" to 1 1/4" larger, depending on the desired movement.

Directions for Storage: The items in my shop are keepsake quality that you'll cherish forever. To keep the sterling silver from tarnishing, store the item in a zip top bag. Do not store in the gift bag or gift box. The best way to avoid tarnish is to wear it!

A little about the components that I use:

STERLING SILVER
Sterling silver is an alloy of 92.5% silver and 7.5% copper.

SWAROVSKI CRYSTALS
Genuine "Strauss" crystal from Swarovski of Austria. These are more expensive than other crystal types and have the best sparkle.

BIRTHSTONE CRYSTALS
If I ever mention birthstones, these are all Swarovski Crystals. I occasionally use actual gemstones but the description will be very clear when gemstones are being used.

FRESHWATER PEARLS: Freshwater pearls are a kind of cultured pearl that come from freshwater mussels. I am picky about the quality of my freshwater pearls and only use only round pearls with high luster and a smooth finish. Pearls are a natural product and there may be the occasional bump or blemish.

GOLD-FILLED BEADS
My gold-filled beads have a layer of 14 karat gold, not just a microscopic film. 14k gold filled is at least 14/20th gold by weight.

Attention California Residents - Proposition 65 WARNING:

Consuming foods or beverages that have been kept or served in leaded crystal products or handling products made of leaded crystal will expose you to lead, a chemical known to the State of California to cause birth defects or other reproductive harm.

Since September 2012, Swarovski has modified the way they make their crystal beads and components to allow them to offer the same brilliant cuts and reflection but using a crystal glass that is greater than 99% lead-free. Even though I use these new Advanced Swarovski Crystal beads, IT IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT THAT YOU SUPERVISE CHILDREN WHILE THEY ARE WEARING BEADED JEWELRY. With enough force, some components may become detached and pose a choking hazard. Please do not allow children to play with beads or let them place any jewelry, charms, clasps, etc. in their mouths. Do not allow your child to sleep in beaded jewelry.

Frequently asked questions

How quickly will this ship?

The current lead time for each item is noted in the Shipping section. Most items ship within 3 business days (Mon-Fri, and not including postal holidays). If the lead time is 6-7 days. contact me to see if I have the color or letter you need in stock.

Does the size include the extender chain?

No. Bracelets will be an additional 1/2" on their largest setting and necklaces that include an extender chain will be 1" larger on their largest setting. For instance, if you order a 5" bracelet - it will be 5" on the smallest setting and 5.5" on the largest setting.

Are the lengths in your size chart bracelet size or wrist size?

All of the lengths in any chart or drop-down menu will be the finished bracelet or necklace size, on the smallest setting.

What do you mean by wrist size?

When you measure for wrist size, measure somewhat tightly around the wrist bone. Do not measure loosely. You will add 3/4" (for children) to the true wrist circumference to determine the bracelet size. For adults, each bracelet listing has specific sizing help. Please read the Description for each bracelet to determine how much to add to the wrist circumference.

Do you use real pearls?

Yes! ALL of the white pearl jewelry is made with very high quality real freshwater pearls. The pearl stud earrings are saltwater pearls. I also use purply pink, blue and coral freshwater pearls that have been dyed. The light pink pearls, however, are Swarovski crystal pearls. I have also added Swarovski pearl earring studs as a lower price solution - but those are clearly described as faux pearls.

Gift wrapping and packaging

For an additional $2 fee, you will receive my premium gift packaging. This is perfect when shipping directly to the gift recipient. Use the "Add Gift Message" to add your personal message. The note will be nicely printed and attached to the gift box. The gift will be placed in an organza pouch, which is then placed into a lovely gift box and tied with a bow. A zip top bag with an anti-tarnish tab and jewelry storage directions are also included. There will be no receipt.

When and where to leave your personalization details

After adding an item(s) to your cart, you'll see a box that says "Add a note to PickledBeads". This is where to leave your personalization details (same spot for multiple items). I will contact you if I have any questions - so be sure to use an email address or phone number that you check regularly.
