Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
Hurrah! I am now able to take payments via PayPal, Direct Checkout and Etsy Giftcards. Exciting!

If you pay be PayPal echeque (I know that sometimes PayPal throws a wobbly and only gives you this option!) your goodies will be dispatched after the echeque has cleared.
Shipping
When your order comes through, I will scurry off to the Curious back room to wrap your beads up as beautifully as possible and send them off to you within 3 working days (but usually within 1). If there are any delays - I am away, or snowed under with life's curiosities, then I will put an announcement up at the front of my shop. If your order contains handmade beads or findings it can take up to 7 days to post out as these are usually made to order. If your order contains a Curiosity Club subscription then it will be posted out according to our monthly schedule.

I post out at least three times a week and usually every week day. If you need your beads and cord in a rush - let me know! I will do what I can to help you out with rush shipping if at all possible. I understand bead emergencies!

International orders (I am shipping from the UK) usually take 1-3 weeks to reach their destination, but can take longer due to customs and our respective postal services. standard international delivery does NOT include tracking; however, there is an upgrade option available on each listing - you can now choose between standard, tracked or insured.
Refunds and Exchanges
I have a strict level of quality control - all beads are personally hand strung and cord cut and wound by myself and my Curious Elf assistant. But if for any reason you are unhappy, please contact me and I will endeavour to make you happy again with replacement beads or a refund if appropriate.

Regardless of whether the goods you buy are faulty or not, you as the buyer have a 14-day (from point of receiving the goods) no questions asked cancellation and return option. If you have simply changed your mind i.e. the goods are not at fault then I will issue a full-refund minus the postage costs, including return standard postage, as per my legal obligation to Distance Selling Regulations. (Postage costs will be similar to my own shipping costs, but as post offices charge by weight and size, and charges vary from country to country they may vary slightly.) If the goods are faulty, I will refund postage and cover return postage as well. This returns policy does not apply to any custom-made orders i.e. specially made findings and beaded beads. It DOES apply to made-to-order items already listed within the shop. Please request a free proof of postage from the post office and send back via first class standard post within 14 days of the package reaching you. Please ensure correct postage is paid - I am not liable to pay fees to pick up from the post office for unpaid postage. Please ensure package is adequately and securely packaged. If you have a customs label to fill in, as you are returning goods, please mark value as nil.

If you do wish to cancel an order, please contact me here on etsy or via email on songbead [!at] me.com. Alternatively, you may download this cancellation form:

and use it instead.
Additional policies and FAQs
As I am a one-woman business, I do try and take my weekends as non-working days. If you contact me on a Saturday, Sunday or bank holiday, I will get back to you on the following working day. Thank you for your understanding!

Unfortunately, because of the way these work on etsy, I am unable to refund the difference retrospectively; the same applies to my quantity discounts. So keep your eyes peeled for these juicy discounts!

Coupon codes are not valid for custom or reserved orders unless clearly specified and cannot be combined.

Reserves

I am happy to reserve most items for up to a week - I do appreciate you offering me a date on which you plan to check out when requesting a reserve however.

Custom orders
For most custom orders, I will need payment upfront before beginning work. If you wish to reserve a made-to-order/custom item, then I will not begin work on this until payment is received. Unfortunately, I've been let down too many times now with this type of reserve, and so this keeps it fair for both of us! Thank you for your understanding.
