Cultured Sea Glass
13 to 16mm
6 Beads per Strand
Priced per Strand
We've all seen the large flat freeform sea glass beads, but these are the small version. I absolutely love them for their highly usable size and the interest that they will add to all my work! Because of their size, they won't overpower my work either! Best of both worlds!
The sea glass I carry is all manufactured and contemporary. There's nothing wrong with manufactured sea glass. It's beautiful, matted glass. The matting won't come off; it's not a coating. The colors are saturated and beautiful and you can get shapes with manufactured sea glass you won't see in nature. (The beach is so good about breaking glass up into tiny pieces!) I've always told my customers that if you like the color and the bead is great, buy it. Work with it. What matters in the end is that you're getting something YOU like!
I've sold beads for over 10 years. As with all items I sell - I'm all about quality! If you're buying Czech glass from me, you're getting A grade, first pick beads from an importer who has picked the beads themselves. You will not get from me - ever - C grade beads much like what is sold to hobby and craft stores or any big box store that prefer price over quality.
Why don't I offer free shipping? Because I like you to know what your getting. If I wrap the cost of shipping into the price, you will not know the true price of the items you are purchasing. Additionally, my International customers get to enjoy lower price declarations because I don't add shipping to my pricing. I love being able to offer you the best pricing available and do offer free shipping if you purchase $50 of merchandise from me, quarterly sales on all of my merchandise, and Thank You Coupons of 15% off for first time shoppers. Further, if you are interested in wholesale or quantity discounts and have questions or inquiries, please contact me!

PRIORITY and EXPRESS UPGRADE: You will find that option on shipping when you check out.
POSTAGE OVERAGES: Postage overages above $3.00 (outside of the postage and shipping/handling) will be automatically refunded.
ORDER CONSOLIDATION: I will consolidate multiple orders made within a day of each other only if you contact me. I will charge the handling fees of $.10, $.15 or $.20 per item and refund anything left over on the order I'm consolidating.
LOST PACKAGES: I will not reimburse on an item that has a delivery confirmation. If I have a delivery confirmation on your package, you will need to go to your post office and file a lost package claim before I can help due to fraud. (International customers: Once it leaves control of the USPS - especially if mailed to an area that is well known for "lost packages" - I cannot to replace the item. You ship at your own risk, but speak to me and we'll see what we can do.)
INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING: I ship worldwide! All items are mailed by International First Class Package with a tracking code on International orders (to the US border). Please allow up to to 6 to 8 weeks for international packets to arrive, as a missing item form cannot be submitted until AFTER 6 weeks have passed (most will arrive sooner). Be aware, a customs form is required by law. I will not mark it as a gift and you may be charged a duty by your country's Customs Office. If you have questions regarding customs, please contact me. I can accommodate.
International Shipping enjoys a flat rate! Postage is as follows:
Canada/All Other Countries - Gemstone: $12.50
Canada/All Other Countries - Brass: $13.50
Canada/All Other Countries - All other Items: $10.00
OTHER INFO: Orders are mailed anywhere from 3-5 business days from your date of purchase/payment. Shipping occurs Monday through Friday. If you need your order expedited (mailed sooner than its shipping window), please message me and I will ship it out sooner if at all possible.
SHIPPING LOSSES: When a shipment is lost and is confirmed by the USPS, I will replace your items. If an item is marked "delivered" by the USPS, I will NOT replace the items. You will have to file a claim with the USPS for compensation.
SHIPPING BREAKS: When a break occurs during shipping, I will replace if possible. Understand that the break occurred because of negligence by the USPS, not my shop. While I make every attempt to ensure your satisfaction, breaks occur. If the item is under $5.00, I will consider replacing it. If the item occurs on higher priced items, I will take the matter under advisement after you contact me with photographs.
I accept all major credit and debit cards. Credit cards are processed through Paypal or Etsy's Direct checkout.
I do not charge taxes. I will not ship unless payment has been made. You can cancel your order anytime before shipping has occurred. After shipping has occurred, you will have to return the package to me before I can cancel and refund.
Returns & exchanges
- Custom or personalized orders
- Perishable products (like food or flowers)
- Digital downloads
- Intimate items (for health/hygiene reasons)
- Items on sale
I accept returns and exchanges within 5 days of your delivery date.
I WILL NOT REFUND POSTAGE ON RETURNED ITEMS.
International customers: I will not refund packages returned to me for unpaid customs fees. Etsy advises sellers to value packages at purchase price and in US dollars. I declare according to Etsy policy and do not include shipping in that declaration.
I am happy to exchange! I will not charge you for postage to ship an exchanged item. (You will pay the postage to me and I'll pay for the postage back to you. This is a common business practice). If the item being replaced is due to my error, I will happily pay all the postage involved.
After inspection of the items being returned or exchanged, you will either receive your credit for the return or your exchange will be shipped. I cannot accept broken strands, opened packages, or damaged goods.
If an item I have created fails due to my workmanship and/or materials used, upon my inspection, I will replace or refund.
DISCOUNT CODES: No you cannot use a discount code every time you shop with me. If that is something you are interested in, you must become a wholesale customer and meet my wholesale requirements. Thanks :)
FREE SHIPPING ON ORDERS OVER $50.00 EVERYDAY
If you order over $50.00, please feel free to use the FREESHIP50 code. Sorry, it cannot be combined with other offers. FREESHIP is intended for U.S. only-based customers. If you are International and spend over $50.00, please convo me and I'll reduce the shipping for you depending on the postal rates for your area.
The African brass all have their own discount codes now:
BRASS10 - 2 OR MORE ITEMS, 10% OFF
BRASS15 - 3 OR MORE ITEMS, 15% OFF
BRASS20 - 4 OR MORE ITEMS, 20% OFF

SEAGLASS10 - $20.00, 10% OFF
SEAGLASS15 - $35.00, 15% OFF
SEAGLASS20 - $50.00, 10% OFF
DISCOUNT CODE APPS: Many of you have been using Honey, Retailmenot, Shopify, etc., a lot lately. While I support the use of the discount codes overall, my POLICIES FOR HOW MY COUPON CODES ARE APPLIED ARE STILL IN AFFECT. If your App uses a coupon code outside how I allow, you will be billed the difference.
THANK YOU COUPON CODES: 10% off with no minimum, can be used every time you order if you have placed a previous order with me.
SALE ITEMS: I will host sales on groups of items or single items quarterly. When I do, the sale is specific to that group of items. When you group non-sale items onto an invoice with sale items, you allow the code to be applied to non-sale items. If this happens, I will bill you the difference between sale and non-sale items in addition to the PayPal fee.
In order to avoid PayPal charges, please consider placing the orders separately. In the "note to seller" please add you have placed two orders one for sale items and one for non-sale items and I will refund your shipping on the second order (except for the per item charge). Or, you can message me before you place an order and I will create a custom order for you with all the items together and all the appropriate discounts applied.
FREE SHIPPING I don't offer free shipping on a regular basis because I like you to be able to see what the beads I sell actually cost - and I HAVE GREAT PRICES! If I combined the cost of the shipping into the beads (because, trust me, the shipping has to be added somewhere - it's a very large cost of doing business), I would have to raise the cost of the beads which would cost you more overall. I would also have to declare larger prices on International Declarations. It's more cost effective for your bottom line to pay the minimal amount I charge for shipping. However, if you order over $50.00 in merchandise, I will let you ship for free. Please use FREESHIP50 - US BASED CUSTOMERS ONLY!!
INVENTORY: I am a bead store, a retail show vendor and I sell on Facebook. Items in inventory can and will suddenly go out of stock. Out of stock items will automatically be refunded when the order ships.
CUSTOM ORDERS: If you have ordered an item that must be made or manufactured for you specifically, your order is nonrefundable.
HANDMADE JEWELRY/BAGS CUSTOM ORDERS: I am HAPPY to create custom orders. If you see anything I've made and want it in a different color or length and/or size - by all means contact me and we'll discuss details.
WHOLESALE JEWELRY/BAGS: With a Sales Use/Tax License in your name, I have a $250.00 minimum purchase, after which you will receive keystone (50% off). Please contact me if you have questions.
WHOLESALE BEADS/TOOLS/STRANDING MATERIALS/FINDINGS: I require a Sales Tax/Use License in your name. My minimum purchase is $100.00 retail. I will discount those orders an additional 5 to 20% off my retail prices (which are already 20% below retail), depending on item category. If you are a bead store, I am happy to extend you an additional discount. Please contact me.
REPAIRS: I perform repairs on many types of jewelry included off loom weaving, wirework, knotted pearls, stringing repairs, and/or some hot fixes and cold contact fixes. Send me pictures and I'll quote you a price and try with all my heart to stick to that quote. I charge $20.00 per hour plus parts and materials. If I need to go over the quote for any reason, I always contact you first to confirm. I've been repairing for over 13 years, I get the job done fast and right the first time.
CONTENT COPYRIGHT: I reserve the right and do hereby copyright any and all of my photographs, handmade jewelry designs, handmade bag designs as well as any and everything else that requires my time and labor intensive creation and/or anything that is wrought of my imagination. You cannot and should not copy my content because I will pursue any and all claims, rights and legal avenues available to reclaim my rights.
