Love this necklace! It is so pretty and well made. I purchased it as a gift for my mother and REALLY wanted to keep it for myself.

About

Inspired by Family, Continued with Friends

Little Bean the boutique came from an outpouring of inspiration and support and a few serendipitous events!

To view a video of my work, please visit http://www.fdlreporter.com/videonetwork/3095774754001

It started with the need to be crafty after moving 4 states south of "home" and being thrown in head first to a brand new military life. I had my daughter (the original Little Bean was just 7 months old at the time) and yes, she is enough, but I had an increasingly strong need for something independent of her, something just for me.

I taught myself how to make quilted ornaments using various tutorials. I went all out in my endeavor. I stocked up on materials and grossly overestimated my free time allowed by the original Little Bean! Then Christmas came and went, the motivation to work on holiday decorations left with it. I went back to being project-less and direction-less.

But what's this??? My amazingly insightful and thoughtful husband bought me a jewelry making kit for Christmas! (Don't tell him I said that about him, he won't be able to fit his head through the doorway). I created my very first pair with the supplies from the kit; they were simple, but I was quite proud of myself and extremely surprised by how much I enjoyed making them.

I decided to make a pair for one of my new friends for her birthday and made them grey and purple to match her style (this eventually became known as the Claire collection). The original pair I made just so happened to be PERFECT for another new friend and I thought she deserved something special (that pair is chocolate and gold toned, which became the Jaime Collection). I gave them each their earrings at a "Mommy's Night In," purely for convenience (or laziness). Another Mommy commented on how much she liked them and asked where I sold them and whether or not I had a web page. I didn't, yet, but the bean (tee-hee, get it?) was planted!

At that same "Mommy's Night In" event, I was told about a bow exchange happening locally. My interest was piqued and I jumped at the chance to try something new, but really I was in it for the grown up, non high-pitched, multi-syllabic conversation that would undoubtedly be sought by every other mommy in attendance. I took the bow making very seriously, too. I knew I wanted something satin and sophisticated/sweet and I wanted it to be something beautiful. I found a tutorial for a ruffled satin ribbon rosette and fell in love!!! I created the first "Kaitlyn" bow and exchanged 11 out of 12 at the event. One, the very first one, came home with me and my LB wears it all the time.

My husband was so impressed by the "Ruffled Satin Rosette" that he suggested I sell the bows. Really, the conversation went more like this "What do you think, honey?" "That's great! You could sell those!" (I'm sure he thought it would mean I'd use up all the extra ribbon I bought and then I'm certain he mentally *facepalmed* when he figured out that actually meant I would spend more money).

I took about a week to do my initial research and really think about it, weighed the pros and cons, gathered input on a shop name and logo, then spent many months building and revising my business plan, tracking down supplies (spending lots - my husband now urges me not to tell him the running total), developing designs, learning new skills, and generating interest and here we are!!!

Little Bean is still in its first year, but it's growing strong thanks to all the support and inspiration I find in all of you

Payment
TYPE: Payments accepted include PayPal or Credit/Debit card. All transactions are subject to Etsy and/or Paypal terms and conditions.

PAYMENT DUE: Payment is due before shipment of items. Payment for custom items are due before any work begins. If the "customization" of your item is simply a color or slight material change, payment isn't due until the product is complete and ready to ship. It will be listed as a regular listing instead of custom order.

CANCELLATIONS OR CHANGES: All payments are final once item ships; cancellations or changes cannot be made once your item(s) has (have) shipped. If you need to cancel a mistaken transaction or make changes to your order, please contact me within 24 hours of placing your order, the sooner the better. Every effort will be made to accommodate your change(s), but once the item ships, all sales are final.
Shipping
PROCESSING TIME: All items ship within 1-3 business days unless otherwise noted. Custom orders may take longer to ship depending on the level of work involved. I make every effort to ensure speedy shipment and most items ship within 1 business day.

CARRIER METHOD: Shipment will be via USPS First-Class with tracking unless otherwise noted or agreed upon.

EXPEDITED SHIPPING: Need it fast? Expedited shipping is available by adding on a priority shipping upgrade within my shop's special add-ons section http://www.etsy.com/shop/TheLBDesigns?section_id=13963688. Overages will be refunded and depending on your number of items in your order, your shipment may need to fit into a medium flat rate box which is a different price. This service is not eligible for the FREE shipping promotion.

EXCESS SHIPPING CHARGES: Excesses will be refunded when applicable.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING: All duties, taxes or other customs fees/issues associated with international shipments are the responsibility of the buyer. Shipments are sent via USPS First-Class Package International Service™ and subject to the terms and conditions of that service and the receiving postal service. PLEASE NOTE: Due to customs restrictions in the UK and Australia, shipment of precious metal or precious stone jewelry requires a custom quote as it cannot be sent via First-Class. Please convo for me for a quote (this only applies to items where shipping rates to UK and Australia are NOT listed).

WEATHER: I am located in the Midwest, inclement weather may delay shipping times during winter months (November through March most years), please plan ahead or message me for current shipping times (shipping times according to USPS.com).
Refunds and Exchanges
REFUNDS, EXCHANGES or REPAIRS: Generally, no refunds will be issued. All sales are final unless otherwise noted. Items cannot be canceled or returned once shipped, except as described below:

DAMAGE IN TRANSIT or NOT AS DESCRIBED: If an item arrives in a condition other than described in the listing, you may exchange it for an item of equal value. If an item arrives damage or defective, every effort will be made to repair or replace the item. You must return the item to my shop to be repaired or replaced (I am not liable if you take the item elsewhere for repairs or replacement). If the item was damaged through transit or normal wear, then your shipping charges will be refunded. This determination is up to the discretion of the seller (me); I make every effort to be fair and equitable in my business. Customer service is a high priority for me.

REFUND EXCEPTION: In rare cases, if a repair or replacement cannot be made, then a full refund minus any shipping costs will be issued, this determination is at the sole discretion of the seller (me).

RETURN POSTAGE & DEADLINES: In order for a repair, replacement or refund to be processed, you must return the damaged or defective item to my shop via the return address from your parcel, postmarked within 10 BUSINESS DAYS of receipt. You MUST include tracking with your package and it must be packaged in a similar fashion as it was received (you are welcome to reuse the packaging I sent). Items worth over $50 must ship with applicable insurance.

PROCESSING: Repairs or replacements will ship back to you within 3-5 business days of receipt. Refunds (as a last resort) will be generated within 1-3 business days of notifying you that your item cannot be repaired or replaced, notification can take up to 3-5 business days so please allow at least 4-8 business days for refunds, but deposits may take longer to appear in your account as per your bank's regulations and procedures.

EXCLUSIONS: Items damaged by buyer's wear and tear or intentional actions will not be refunded or exchanged under any circumstances. Custom orders cannot be returned or exchanged under any circumstances. However, repairs will be done free of charge (see policy in "Additional Information") not including any shipping fees. Adjustments to custom orders may be done, on a case by case basis, although this may not always be possible due to the construction or design of the item. Every effort is made to accurately convey the design of your custom item and confirm your design before shipping (including a photograph of your completed piece).
Additional policies and FAQs
FREE REPAIRS: All of my items are quality handmade items. I make every effort to use the highest quality materials, sourced as much as possible from United States suppliers, while remaining economical enough to make my items affordable to every dame of any age. I back the quality of my items by offering a free repair program. If your item requires repair at any time, I offer repair services free of charge. You are responsible for shipping charges, but the repair work will be done for free.

IN PERSON: If you would rather not pay shipping, you can bring your item to any craft show where I am participating and I will repair your item on the spot free of charge. Some items may require additional time and either may not be ready until the end of the show or I may need to ship them back to you sometime after the show.
