About HandmadeByGlenda

Sales 934
On Etsy since 2013

Prior to the creation of Handmade by Glenda, I worked in a library. Faced with privatisation and subsequent unemployment I began making small beaded earrings and selling them to colleagues. Sales were good and word spread. When unemployment came I decided to take the plunge and create jewellery full time! I used to sell my pieces to friends and at craft fairs, only casually using etsy. It wasn't until 2019 when my daughter got involved that I started using etsy as a serious platform. I still make and sell unique beaded pieces, but I save these for local fairs, details of which can be found on my social media platforms.

Frequently asked questions
Wholesale availability

I offer most of my items at wholesale amounts. However as all items are handcrafted please message me as early as possible to ensure I can produce them in time. All wholesale orders are entitled to a discount depending on the size of the order.

Do you make custom items?

Yes, gladly! Please message me your requirements and we can work on something together. Please keep shipping time in mind when ordering custom items, and order at least 2 weeks before the required shipping date. Any orders placed within 2 weeks will be subject to an additional "rush fee", depending on the size of the order.

The reason for the rush fee is to account for the overtime hours I will have to put in for rushed orders. It also accounts for last minute buying of materials which may cost more than when bought in advanced.

All custom orders are shipped via tracked and signed for.

Gift wrapping and packaging

When the "gift" option is selected at the checkout the item will be gift wrapped.

This means is will be placed in an organza bag and wrapped in tissue paper. This will then be placed in a paper bag with an additional gift* before being placed in the envelope and shipped. Any gift message will be written on a quirky gift tag and included in the envelope.

If you would like anything else added, or have any other requirements just let me know!

*the gift will be a lollipop sweet. I ensure that any edible gifts are suitable for as many dietary requirements as possible. Including vegan, halal, kosher, dairy and gluten free.

Is the packaging eco friendly?

Yes! The environment is very important to me so we are a plastic free company. All aspects of the packaging can be reused. All parts of the packaging (except the tiny organza bags and envelope) can be recycled. I also do not include a paper invoice, although you are welcome to request one.

My package hasn't arrived

Oh no! If your item hasn't arrived, please message me. However if you are from outside the UK and Europe please bear in mind customs times. Royal mail cannot accept an item as lost until a certain amount of days after postage, however once this time period has passed and your item has still not arrived I can send a replacement free of charge.
