I brought this charm for a custom order; the charm itself is beautiful. High quality and well made, however the charm did not send within the estimated time frame for dispatch and I had to chase the seller up via message as to when it would send due to my custom order deadline. Item was marked as posted shortly after my message, though if I had not seen her note on the order, there was no response to my message. Seller had mentioned in the note she had not seen my order and had been teaching. I appreciate the explanation, though I would have appreciated more communication and resassurance from the seller due to the nature of my order. Thankfully the order turned up in time.

A great tutorial, I knew everything. But the way of the connection released me. Thank you very much. :-)

About

Glastonbury's Bead Shop

Minerva Beads and Crafts came out of an obsession with all things beads and jewellery. We started as a small market stall attending markets in and around Somerset but soon realised that this was not going to work for us long term so we decided to open a bricks and mortar shop. Glastonbury was chosen as the best location as it is a vibrant and lively town and was some where that we felt suited us and also there was not bead shop there already. We have been trading from the top of the high street for over 3 years now and while business is never straightforward it is a very enjoyable place to be. We sell a wide variety of beads and findings but we specialise in all things wire, we have a good stock of wire tools, bare copper wire and both colour and silver plated wire. We also have a large selection of semi precious beads including chips and cabochons. We have a workshop where we teach all sorts of beading workshops, including some specialist crystal workshops and it is also where you can buy Lonely Soldiers Designs work from too. Lonely Soldier is a partner in the business but he is also a very talented wire jewellery designer, he teaches from our workshop as well as designs the tutorials that are downloadable from here too. The shop is open mon-fri 10-5 and we also have a website. We chose etsy as our platform for selling some of our selection of semi precious beads and cabochons as it felt like the best way to show what we have. We are very proud of our selection as most of them are hand picked by either myself or Lonely Soldier so we feel confident that you will love them too!
