Announcement   Welcome :)

I'm happy to report I now accept credit cards directly through Etsy!

Glass, silver, beads, jewelry.....there's a bit of everything here. I guess that means I can't stick to just one thing!

Due to the recent hike in postage fees by the USPS I have had to implement a nominal shipping fee in order to keep the prices of my items unchanged. However, I have tried to keep this to bare costs!

*International buyers pay a nominal shipping charge. Please be aware of my policies regarding international shipping/insurance/duties & taxes/and delivery times.

Proud to be a member of the SRA. My SRA membership number is K4. Buying from a SRA means:

* handmade beads made by one individual
* beads that are properly annealed for strength & durability
* bead holes that are smooth without any rough edges
* bead holes that are clean and free of bead release
* an unconditional guarantee against breakage

Hi! My name's Yee and I'm a glassaholic! I've been creating with glass for close to five years now. I got bitten by the bug when I was looking for a way to add some flair to my custom bag creations. I had set out to find a glass artist to create unique zipper pulls and dangles but found myself taking on the challenge myself. I no longer make custom bags but have fully succumbed to the glass calling.

So maybe you're wondering how I came to choose The Glass Turtle as my moniker. Well....it was a spin off my custom bag business which was known as Two Turtles. The Two Turtles came from a late night golf game in which there was more goofing off than golf and which featured my husband (then boyfriend) running after turtles at the water hazards instead of hitting the darn ball! Somehow turtles stuck...the two is him and me. Put it all together and voila! Two Turtles. Actually it's kinda karmic that I chose to go with turtles as they are a symbol of prosperity in Chinese culture and hey....I AM Chinese!

But back to glass! All of my glass beads are created by me in my new tiny indoor studio. I use a variety of different types of glass such as Effetre, Vetrofond, Kugler, Lauscha, Bullseye, and Uroboros. I work on a couple of different torches (depending on which I feel like!) with natural gas and and a 10LPM oxygen concentrators. All my beads are carefully annealed in a digitally controlled kiln for longevity and durability.

Melting glass is a de-stressor for me. When I'm not playing with fire I'm putting out fires in the critical care unit where I work as an RN.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions, comments, or random thoughts :)

International Customs: I include an invoice with each package that corresponds with the customs form declaring the full purchase price of each order. Please be aware your country may charge additional customs duty and/or import taxes that you, as the buyer, are solely responsible for. I cannot declare an item to be anything other than a purchase although will classify unfinished items as such.
Refunds and Exchanges
Got a question about my REFUND policy? I always try to take the best possible pics of my beads and hope that you will like them even more when you hold them in your hands. However, if you are unhappy with them for any reason please contact me and we'll figure something out! Please be a smart shopper and have a ruler handy for those measurements. As always, colors vary across monitors so if in doubt ASK FIRST before buying =)
Additional policies and FAQs
I do guarantee my beads unconditionally against breakage so if you have any problems at any time please contact me and I'll do my best to make it right!
