3/31/2021 - I am still working on new tutorials- I will have a snowflake earring tutorial next! Also, I have had to disable international shipping for now. I hope that it can be resumed in the future. Domestic US shipping is still running behind, as well. I always ship same or next day, but the USPS is in control after that! Thank you for your patience with any USPS shipping delays.

12/15/2020 - I am so happy to finally have my Go-Bead! mat listed for sale. I have made and used these myself for years, and it just occurred to me that I should list them! I have a free tutorial on You Tube as well, so you can even make one yourself if you want to learn how!

11/2020 - I am adding tutorials! I have been working hard on a few tutorials for my original designs. It's slow going, but I plan on adding many more, including kits for supplies :)

8/4/2020 - Charge3 replacement bands now available!

7/22/2020 - Inspire and InspireHR replacement bands now available! Click on listing to see a variety of color choices for each! I am now attempting to update my shop with better pictures and listings, so there will be some changes (for the better, I hope) coming soon :)

7/12/2020 - Update! I have added VIDEOS in most of my listings now! Now you can see how easy it is to use these bracelets and pendants with your fitness tracker!

Hello! Welcome to my shop! Home of the Original SparklyThingsByJ accessory bands for use with the FitBit FLEX, FLEX2, ALTA, AltaHR, CHARGE2, Charge3, Inspire, Inspire2, InspireHR. I am always working on adding more stock, colors and styles; most colors are available for any device, just ask if you don't see what you are looking for!

Shop has a 5 STAR rating!! Thank you to my wonderful customers, too - I am always happy to help with anything I can, just ask!

These are truly unique, artisan hand crafted, bead work bracelets. I use my own patterns and designs, which are copyrighted and not available for use without permission. All bead woven items are intricately and painstakingly sewn together by hand using very tiny glass beads, and the highest quality, nearly unbreakable thread, reinforced for extra strength with several passes. Elastic in bands is resistant to fraying, stretching and breaking. All items are assembled by me, with the utmost care and attention to detail, using only the highest quality items, featuring Czech, Japanese and Austrian glass beads, or gemstones beads, as these are the highest quality and most sought after beads in the world.

Please note, when ordering stretch bands - be sure to order the closest to your *exact* wrist size (measure at or just above your wrist bone - use a cloth measuring tape, or string and then place string against a ruler to determine size. Do not add extra, and make sure to not pull too tight, and that there are no gaps). FREE RESIZING* for stretch bands is available on eligible U.S. orders - but please make sure to check your wrist size to avoid any delay of the enjoyment of your purchase with a return! Please read listing for more details. See my ADJUSTABLE bracelets for the FitBit Flex/Flex2 - great for gift giving!
*Sale/Discounted and international items are not eligible for free resizing, sorry. Please contact me for invoice if resizing is necessary.

Sparkly Things By J

Hello! Welcome to my shop, home of the Original Sparkly Things By J Fitness Tracker Bracelets. I designed these bracelets to be both form and function. They feature a highly unique holder, where the activity tracker is securely held inside. There are no latches or hinges; the holder is intricately hand woven with tiny glass beads, from my own original design that creates a flexible and strong "tube" that will mold closely to the module. You will be able to see the flashing lights (Flex, Flex2) or display screens (various models have an opening that allow you to see the screens) through the beadwork. The holder is attached to a stretch band of high quality glass, wood or semi-precious gemstone beads. I designed the entire bracelet to be as low profile, streamlined and comfortable to wear as possible, not bulky or clunky. These bands work for anyone that wants to make their activity tracker more attractive and fun to wear. I hope you will enjoy wearing this unique creation!
Please message me with any questions, I am happy to help!
Jenn
PS - I am now adding my own beading tutorials and supplies. If you enjoy beading, or know someone who does, check out my Go-Bead! mats. They make it soooo much easier to create!

  • Custom or personalized orders
  • Perishable products (like food or flowers)
  • Digital downloads
  • Intimate items (for health/hygiene reasons)
Returns and exchange details
Orders may not be cancelled once placed.

If, after receiving your item, you are unsatisfied with your purchase, or feel that somehow it is not at all what was expected, please contact us within 7 days of receipt (the day tracking shows when item was delivered) to make arrangements for a return or exchange*. Returns are accepted in unused and unworn condition, shipping paid for by buyer, for your full purchase price. Returns and exchanges must be postmarked for return within 14 days of originally receipt of the item.
*Earrings cannot be returned due to hygiene issues. Contact shop directly if an exchange is needed. There may be an additional expense if the items differ in price, or for shipping.

All jewelry is guaranteed for workmanship for 30 days from date of receiving item. Normal wear and tear, tarnishing and damage to beads causing the bead to break or chip are not considered workmanship defects. If an item breaks in any other way (like a metal link or clasp that breaks), within 30 days of receipt, simply message us for details on how to return for repair. Buyer is responsible for return shipping, and for including all materials of broken pieces (or as many as possible!). For items needing repair after 30 days, please see next section, "Additional Information".

For longest wear, treat items gently and avoid perfumes, oils, sweat, getting wet or sleeping with item on. Jewelry should never be worn during heavy exercise. If item becomes dirty, use a damp cloth and a mild soap to remove debris/oils and pat dry gently.

There will be slight variations from the pictures sometimes due to the hand-made nature of the jewelry. This should not be seen as a defect, but as an enhancement to the beauty of the piece! Crystals, beads and gemstones all vary by nature or manufacturing as well, and we always attempt to make the best matches. All bead woven items are double or triple (or more) reinforced, and securely knotted. On bead woven parts, the beads will not go flying off if a loose thread appears! Simply trim the thread carefully.

A custom order is not refundable.

A tutorial is not refundable. Contact me if you need help or have any questions.

Shipping
Jewerly item(s) will each be carefully packaged in a cardboard box (made in the USA from recycled materials!) with tarnish resistant filling and tissue paper.

Multiple items to the same address may be placed in the same box, with extra packaging for safety. We ship first class USPS. Tracking is included with shipping in the US. Shop is not responsible for items that show they have been successfully delivered to a correct address but buyer did not receive, or items that are lost or slow delivery. You must contact the post office to notify them. We will help the best we can if an issue occurs. All addresses are verified by USPS for delivery; it may be necessary to contact you for confirmation of address if your address cannot be verified.

Please note - free resizing will not apply to international orders, sorry. Tracking will not be available once item leaves the US. Shop is not responsible for delays in customs, customs fees, undelivered items, or loss of item in shipping. Shop will work with you to resolve any issues, if possible.

All VAT and other taxes, duties, customs fees are the responsibility of the buyer.
Etsy will collect all taxes where applicable as well.

Additional policies and FAQs
PLEASE READ! IMPORTANT INFORMATION for FITBIT ACCESSORIES!
Please review your purchase to make sure you have ordered the *correct* choices for your activity tracker *DEVICE* and *SIZE/MEASUREMENT* (for stretch accessory) and *BRACELET or ANKLET*. Contact shop within 24 hours if a change needs to be made.

*****************Please measure wrist for best fit! Shop is not responsible for an incorrect measurement when ordering; please be sure of size! Stretch bracelets for the FitBit are designed to fit snug for best tracking. To measure your wrist size, use a cloth measuring tape if you have one, or you can use a string, a piece of paper, or soft material to measure around your wrist, just at or above the wrist bone (closer to your elbow than to your hand, or where you would normally wear a watch), make sure there are no gaps, and do not pull too tight. Mark where the ends meets, then place against a ruler to determine actual wrist size. A 1/4" extra Is added for a comfortable fit, so don't add extra. Do not go by the *length* of your favorite bracelet! If you are between sizes (like a 6 1/8"), choose the next size down (a 6"). It is better the bracelet is a bit snug than too loose. See picture in listing for example - works for anklet sizing, too! *****************

Free resizing applies to valid items. You must contact us through the Etsy message system within 5 business days of receiving your item to approve the resizing and return shipping details. Then, simply return the item, wrapped securely and safely (return shipping paid for by buyer). The item will be resized and returned within 2 business days of receiving it. We hope this will help make your decision to purchase easier, knowing that it can be easily resized if you are unhappy with the fit, but please make sure to still measure your wrist to avoid any delay in the enjoyment of your purchase! Good for one free resizing. If another resizing is needed, the charge for resizing is $8 for US orders and buyer is responsible for return shipping. International sales are not eligible for free resizing, but you can message us for a resizing invoice or a free DIY tutorial.

Please note: the special finishes (metallic, luster, iris, picasso) of some glass beads on bracelets/anklets can possibly show signs of wear. We use only high-quality beads with the most durable coatings, and like to make these color choices available, but these can sometimes be susceptible to showing wear. For longest wear, avoid overuse (sleeping with or wearing 24/7), perfumes, oils, sweat, and getting wet. Even body chemistry can cause the accelerated fading of some finishes. There are no returns on items that have been damaged in these ways. We can repair or replace the item if you wish to contact us, and we will send more info then on how to proceed - additional charges may apply to cover cost of repair. It is uncommon, but we feel it should be stated. Most non-metallic opaque, transparent and semi-transparent (like opal) glass beads with out special finishes will never have color wear off as they are solid color all of the way thru - try choosing these styles as alternatives if you wish to not risk damage occurring to your bracelet/anklet! This is also true for some metal finishes. I try not to use metal at all, or to use stainless steel whenever possible, but some metals have a coating that may tarnish or fade.

Bracelets/anklets with elastic bands - these are so easy to slip on and off, but the downside is elastic can sometimes break. We use only the highest quality, strongest elastic so this should rarely happen, but you must be careful not to overly stretch it. If, after 30 days from receiving your item, an accident happens or the elastic band breaks, we offer restringing for $8 plus up to 10% of the original cost of the bracelet depending on how many beads are lost to cover replacement cost. Message us for an invoice to purchase and for return shipping information (return shipping paid for by buyer). Then gather all the pieces you can, carefully wrap or protect them, and send them back to us. Restrung items will be fixed and returned within 2 business days of return to shop.

Please be sure to carefully read sizes and measurements. Things look much larger on the screen than in person to show detail! Also, computer monitors do not always convey true colors. Your item may look a little different - we try to include as many pictures as possible to give the best idea of what the item looks like.

All items are intended for persons aged 14 and older. They are not intended for small children as they contain small parts and can be delicate. Please handle and care for your items gently. If you have metal allergies, you can use clear nail polish on ear wires to keep your skin from changing color or becoming irritated. There are also professional products you can buy for allergies, but nail polish works great and is cheaper!

Tutorials: all tutorials and patterns are created by the artist, and all pictures and instructions are protected by copyright law. You may not share, copy, reproduce or teach any part of this pattern. If you sell your finished product on Etsy or anywhere else, please give credit for the pattern by including artist's name, Jennifer McGrath, or a link to Etsy Shop page, www.SparklyThingsByJ.Etsy.com. By purchasing the tutorial you agree to this policy. Tutorials are non-refundable. Please contact us with any questions before or after purchase.

Finally, all taxes will be collected by Etsy from areas/states/countries that are required to comply. Shops have no control over this. The taxes are collected and paid thru Etsy. Any import taxes/duties/customs fees must be paid by buyer.
