Announcement   Welcome to my supply shop! I list various destash lots, vintage buttons and beads, and my own handmade polymer clay beads and altered findings several times a week.

I will be happy to combine shipping fees between my jewelry and supplies shops; just send me a convo so I can create a special listing for you. Also, I am always listing new things; if you see something you'd like to add on to your already-purchased but unshipped order, let me know and I will reserve it for you and adjust the shipping fee.

I absolutely love these and all your handmade polys!!! They are so complex and wonky...I can't stop looking at them because I think they are forming new grooves in my brain...either that or flooding it with dopamine! That's a pretty good rush from some beads!! Thanks as always for the extra treats!!!

Information on some of the categories and pricing:

"Destash Strands" are beads and items that are what I consider overstock and are priced to move. They are usually grouped by color and type but there may be mixes.

"Destash Lots" are beads and items that may include items for reuse/refashioning, and/or bead harvesting, seconds, and such. There may be a combination of loose and strung beads and components. I will pack the lots securely in baggies as necessary and stuff the smallest size priority box as possible.

"Curated Strands" are beads and components thoughtfully chosen with a theme in mind, such as pairs for earring-making, necklace pendants, or special types.

"Hand Dyed Bone Beads" are bone beads that I color process in small batches using specially blended dyes. The beads achieve a rustic, ageworn patina through a routine that includes many, many rounds of dyeing, color removal, and detailing. The last step in the coloring process is color removal, and it is always followed by repeated rinsing and washing to remove any extraneous superficial dye. The color on the cords that can be seen in some of the photos is due to dye-detailing work I do on some of the strands after stringing. These strands are rinsed and cleaned like the other strands.

In addition, I seal the beads with a small amount of microcrystalline wax after they are processed, and again before shipping. The color is permanent and will not rub off onto skin or clothing with normal use. However, as with any organic or altered item, care should be taken to keep the beads from getting wet and away from any extreme conditions.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
I accept Paypal & credit cards via Etsy's 'direct checkout' feature. I ship after payment is confirmed. If you are a new Etsy or Paypal customer and find difficulties with the checkout process, please do not hesitate to contact me by a convo so I can put your deisred items on reserve for you until things are squared away.

Please note that by default I ship to the ETSY address.
Shipping
For regular items, I usually ship within 5 business days upon receipt of payment. I usually ship on Saturday mornings. If your order is time sensitive, please let me know either prior to purchase or within a 'note to seller' on your order.

I use the ever-reliable USPS 1st class parcel service with tracking information included. Express services, etc. are available by prior arrangement and agreed upon applicable service and handling fees.

For custom and made-to-order items, it is my general goal to ship within a week and a half of payment. There are circumstances under which it will be shorter than or longer than a week and a half. If turnover time is an issue with your order, please inquire with a convo prior to purchase. I will do everything possible to complete orders as quickly as possible.

If ready-to-ship items are purchased in the same transaction along with custom or made-to-order items, they receive a more economical "combined shipping" rate; they will be shipped when the special order items are completed and will therefore have a longer shipping timeframe. If you would like the ready-to-ship items to arrive more quickly, combine all ready-to-ship items into one transaction and all custom and/made-to-order items into another, separate transaction.

I ship worldwide. If there are any discrepancies or omissions in my shipping fees, please convo me so I can set the fees correctly
Refunds and Exchanges
Generally, all sales are final. I have taken care to document all materials, dimensions, dynamics, and anything that could be perceived as a flaw or imperfection within the photos and item description. Please don't hesitate to ask any questions about items prior to purchase.

However, your absolute satisfaction is important to me, and I realize there are situations in which exchanges, refunds, and returns are in order, and such issues will be addressed appropriately.
Additional policies and FAQs
*Reserve Policies and Information*

Generally, my reserve policy is that I will reserve items for up to one week. I will consider reserves to be an agreement or commitment of purchase. Favoriting or even adding to cart can be used as an effective placeholder to consider the item. The timeframe for reserves is of course subject and amendable to circumstances. I ask that new customers please include relevant information (timeframe until purchase/commitment to purchase, the exact listing url, etc.) within an initial reserve inquiry convo.

Note too, that I may sometimes initiate a reserve for various reasons. In such case, this is done for my own convenience and there of course is no obligation to purchase.

If a an order marked as "RESERVED" or "CUSTOM" in the title is purchased by someone other than for whom it is intended, the order will be cancelled.

*Wholesale Orders*

Wholesale orders and inquiries from resellers, boutique owners, and individuals are very welcome. Please inquire for details.

*Gift Purchases*

Special gift wrapping and short notes are available for free upon request.
