Frequently asked questions

Are these beads handmade?

Every bead on Rational Planet's Etsy site has been hand-produced by me in my home studio, using various colors of Italian "soft glass" rods and sterling silver foil for detail.

I hand-mix various colors of rods to create natural features and designs on a base of glass wrapped in a steel mandrel.

There is no stone or paint involved; indeed only glass is used in the creation of each bead...
and every bead is kiln-annealed at 900 degrees for many hours, for strength and durability, as well as overall longevity, in design.

Are any of your gemstones treated?

No!
All of Rational Planet's stone offerings are 100% natural and untreated specimens. Some are harder than others, due to natural differences in constitution, and some would benefit from stabilization of some sort if intended for lapidary.
But I do not sell treated or stabilized stone.

How long will the cotton necklace hold up?

If worn daily under normal circumstances, it should last over a year of showering and exercise. If worn occasionally, it should prove to be near-heirloom quality. The sterling findings should be polished occasionally to keep the shine, if you desire, and if the cord eventually breaks, the pendant's jumpring will facilitate an easy transition to your favorite chain.

Are Your Shop Policies Actually Yours?

The short of it is "NO".
My policies are far more relaxed.
