This shop specializes in unique beads and findings with a rustic and historic flair. I have a special love for Arabian styles, due to family ties and my travels. Some special lines are Czech Glass, Mykonos Greek ceramic beads, my Old World Collection which is so possible you have to buy it when you see it before it is gone! Special Wood and Shell Beads, Spacers in Brass, copper, Silver, and Bronze, and African Trade Beads!

Not sure about about sizing? beads are measured in millimeters, 1mm is very small. a regular lentil is typically 5-6mm and a grain of couscous is about 1mm. 1 inch is about 24mm. these are estimates for scale. see the chart below for more detailed info.

About

Make something!

Starbazaar was actually an offshoot of my business, Nedjma Bazaar, and is the beading and jewelry supply side. It quickly became the most successful side of the business. Lucky thing for me because it is exactly what I love to do.

I discovered a need for micro businesses and hobbyists to buy unique and high quality supplies in medium sized packets. The benefit being a lower cost than singles at bead stores, but less financially limiting than buying in strands or kilos from wholesalers. If someone has a smaller budget they are able to get more styles and thus make more new designs.

The shop has a natural earthy theme, and a focus on copper, brass and bronze colors and colors that coordinate with these metals. You will find natural materials, supplies with cultural themes, and a lot of spacers. Spacers, Czech glass, Mykonos ceramic beads, and the Old World line of Greek inspired .925 silver plated bold pendants and charms. are my best sellers and favorites.

I use most of the beads I sell in my own work, and you can find examples of how you can use them in the photos of many listings or at www.nedjmabazaar.com.

Follow the link to your right to the facebook page and you will get inspiration, tutorials, contest, new items updates, and sale information on a regular basis! Thanks for coming!

Payment
Due to Washington sales tax laws, I must collect sales tax from buyers in Washington State. I take paypal and direct checkout (credit cards) .
Shipping
I ship priority, first class or parcel post USPS. Most are first class . I ship 3-4 times a week. I usually do not ship on saturdays, orders placed on fridays will ship on monday most likely. Orders placed before friday will ship by friday regardless of what the automated system tells you. orders placed on friday will be shipped monday, occasionally tuesday.

International orders may take up to 90 days. International orders may have additional customs fees or VAT charges imposed by your country. These are not additional shipping charges and are your responsibility. Please be aware of what your limits are and order accordingly. This is not something I can skirt by mis-marking packages as gifts or a lower price. .

I SHIP TO YOUR ETSY ADDRESS. please make sure it is correct. once it is shipped, if the address was incorrect you will only recieve a refund if the item is returned to me. Return to sender can take several weeks or longer. if so, i will reship for an additionally shipping fee at cost plus transaction fees, or refund.

If an item does not arrive within15 business days of shipping to a domestic address, (30 days international) I will research the whereabouts and re-send whenever possible or necessary. I refund ONLY in the case of unique items which cannot be replaced. Otherwise I send another order.

If tracking states an item has been delivered to your address, you may recieve re-delivery or store credit only. Replacement in the case of packages that show delivered will be decided on a case by case basis, and will depend on what research finds when i contact your post office. all packages over 100 dollars will require a signature. once a package is signed for there are no refunds for non delivery, no exceptions. Lost packages must be reported to me within 90 days for insurance claims.

Packages over 100 dollars are insured. You will be required to sign an affidavit to the insurance company before being refunded. Large orders may require insurance to pay before i can refund.

In order to receive combined shipping, items must be purchased the same day unless you have previously contacted me.
Refunds and Exchanges
Refunds are allowed within 14 days of arrival according to delivery confirmation . Money will be refunded only after items are returned in the same condition sent. claims of damage must include a photo of the damage OR returned merchandise if requested by this shop. I cannot refund shipping once and item has been sent, nor can I pay return shipping unless the items are damaged in shipping or I am at fault due to misrepresentation. I suggest purchasing delivery confirmation if you are shipping valuable items back to me, as it is the only way you can be sure that the item arrived here.

PLEASE CONTACT ME BEFORE SHIPPING A PRODUCT BACK this will allow me to earmark funds for refunds. Please include the value of the items you are shipping if it is only a partial order, or a detailed list of what you are returning.
