Welcome to TheBeadStorm. My passion here on Etsy started in the spring of 2009 and was centered on making jewelry, earrings specifically (this is my 2nd shop). I still love making jewelry but have found a new love in vintage hunting. My aim now is to keep my shop a mixture of vintage and fine handmade jewelry. I am currently in the middle of moving from place to place so maintaining my business here on Etsy has taken a little bit of a hit in that I don't have as much time or as many resources to find/create new items, photograph them, and get them up on Etsy. Never the less, I am trying and am always available to respond to convos of you have any questions or requests.

Welcome again!

Accepted payment methods

Returns and exchanges
I cannot be held responsible for any loss/damages that occur during shipment. If there is a problem with an item that results from my hand then I will gladly make amends. Insurance is not standard on my items but i'd be glad to add it if you'd like it. Let me know preferably before you pay and I can send you an updated invoice.
Here is the price list for US Postal Insurance.
Buying insurance includes free delivery confirmation too :)
Payment must be received within 48 hours of commitment to buy or item will be re-listed and negative feedback will be left. Please note this excludes exceptions where the buyer has contacted me ahead of time about issues with payment.
I only accept PayPal at this time for your safety and mine. Doing business on the internet can be risky business and I want to offer you the most security I can.
Beware of PayPal spoofs which are easy to spot if you know what to look for. Never respond to an email labeled PayPal if it asks you to click on a link within the email and enter information.
PayPal will NEVER do this, they will only ask you to go to their site and log in before giving or receiving any information. Check out PayPal's site for more tips on how to spot bogus emails or other financial scams. Any bogus emails can be reported to PayPal's phishing department.
Using PayPal is pretty simple but I must ask that you make sure the "ship to" address indicated here on Etsy matches that on PayPal (in the instance of a gift, etc just let me know ahead of time that you will be using an alternate address).
I usually am able to ship the day after I receive an order. Weekends and holidays are of course exceptions. Most of my shipments will come via PayPal shipping labels and you will be sent an email detailing the shipment with a link to track the package.
Every now and then I will have an item that needs to be weighed at the post office for accuracy or my schedule gets crazy and going to the PO is the best bet. These shipments may not always include delivery confirmation(tracking). If you would like this service and think your item may fall into the above exclusion areas I mentioned just let me know. It costs $0.70.
I have yet to have any international buyers but welcome them. I require that payment be cleared before I ship of course and I am not an expert and gauging international shipping yet so that may take some time.
