Hello fellow jewelry lovers. My goal is to provide everyone (no matter what your budget) a chance to afford custom-made, high quality pieces of jewelry. I love the feel of precious metals and semi-precious gems and love working with them. However, I also understand that not everyone can afford gold and sterling, especially at today's market values. This is why I will provide both precious metal pieces and affordable base metal alternatives. All of my pieces are handcrafted and the materials used will be clearly specified. Feel free to contact me with any questions or just to chat about beading!
Happy Shopping from The Avid Beader

Accepted payment methods

Returns and exchanges
If you are not 100% satisfied with your purchase, please return it within 14 days for a complete refund, minus the cost of shipping. If there is any defect in the item you receive(not caused by normal wear and tear), let me know within 30 days and I will repair or replace it free of charge.
Please submit payment for an item within 24 hours or the item will be relisted and the sale will be canceled. If you need longer than 24 hours for any reason, please convo me and I will work with you.

Please do not leave negative feedback unless you have contacted me! I will do everything possible to make you satisfied with your order. Check out my feedback! I have never received negative feedback from a paying customer! I have one negative feedback from a customer who bought an item and then never paid for it, but I do not believe you earn the right to leave feedback (positive or negative) if you never pay for the item you purchased.
All purchases over $50 receive FREE SHIPPING in the US! You only pay a flat rate on orders under $50, no matter how many items you buy! I ship USPS Priority mail which usually takes 3-6 business days to arrive after shipment. Currently, in stock items ship within 24 hours.
Additional policies and FAQs
Custom orders are always welcome! If you see a piece you like but would like a different gemstone, color or metal (ex. sterling instead of pewter or silver-plate) I will be glad to price and create the item for you. Remember that many of my creations will be available in different metals to fit your budget. I will also communicate with you throughout the creative process (and can send pictures of your creation at your request) so that you have a design that you will love to wear!
