Glass SAPPHIRE Sew On Trim 13 mm Circle (10) Vintage Glass Bead Foil Flat Back Mirrored Cobalt
These glass pieces are from West Germany probably made in the 1950s. These are circles with faceted top. They have two holes for sewing onto fabric. They measure 15 mm in diameter. While they were probably originally intended to be used as dress/garment embellishments, my thoughts go to using them in jewelry. Try using two of them back to back to make a most fabulous connector. Or make earrings. Hey, you could even sew them on as trim. The two holes open the door to lots of possibilities. I have more of these if the amount shown available isn't enough. Please convo me.
OVERSEAS CUSTOMERS: RE: INTERNATIONAL POSTAGE INCREASE The US Post Office has raised its rates. In particular, the very small packages are now much more expensive to ship. A 1 ounce package has gone up over 100%. I hate it. Unfortunately, there isn’t anything I can do about it.
I have come up with three ways to help combat this increase for small packages. Here’s what I can do for you:
1) I will refund shipping fees you pay on Etsy above the actual postage fee to ship your package. This means I will absorb any costs for packing materials or handling.
2) I am also offering a “Buy and Save Now, Ship Later” plan to you. Here’s how it works: You may make purchases over a period of time. When you are ready for shipment, I will package your goods, ship them to you and send you a refund over the exact shipping cost. Take advantage of combined weight shipping instead of paying higher fees more frequently. Just let me know when you pay for your purchase you would like to wait to ship. I will keep track of the accounting and set aside your items for you.
3) The good news is I can ship up to 8 ounces for the same price as 1 ounce. That’s right, it costs the same for me to ship you 1 set of buttons as 10 sets. You can purchase multiple items for the same shipping fee.
And Furthermore...I am always happy to ship to you. I package well and have never had a problem with breakage. However, I cannot reimburse you for packages that go missing unless you have purchased insurance and tracking. Please let me know within 24 hours if you would like to insure your package and I will send you an invoice for the cost. Otherwise, your package will be shipped via First Class International and you will carry the risk.
I have shipped hundreds of overseas packages, and 99.99% of the time they arrive without a hitch. Certain countries have less reliable postal systems and you probably know if you live in one of those and can make the insurance decision accordingly. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions. I sincerely thank you for your purchase. I have hundreds of happy customers all over the world, and am most appreciative of your business!
Kind Regards, Marin
Returns & exchanges
I've gone for years without a specific Return Policy as I feel each transaction is its own and problems can be worked out without a lot of rules in place by simply communicating with my customer. If you are thinking of ordering something you are unsure about or have other concerns, please contact me beforehand and we can work something out.
Please do not ask me to alter customs forms either by changing the purchase price or changing from "merchandise" to "gift". This is illegal and I am unable to accommodate these kinds of requests. Seller is NOT responsible for customs fees and import taxes imposed on Buyer by their country of residence. Falsifying customs declaration forms in order to help a Buyer avoid these taxes and fees is against the law, and comes with a punishment of up to $10,000 USD with the possibility of up to 5 years of imprisonment. For further information about these laws go to codes.lp.findlaw.com/uscode/13/9/305 If you have questions about fees, taxes, customs, etc. please contact your local authorities. I do appreciate your understanding in these matters.
