These polymer clay beads were created at the same time as the brown heart charms to accompany the beaded pendant necklace (additional listing). The idea was to create extra beads, in case I needed them for the earrings. Since I still can't envision how to make a proper pair of earrings out of them, the use of the beads became a moot point.
Each of these beads was handmade without using a mold. I rolled them and cored them by hand, meaning each one is unique--although some of them are similar enough to match (ie. for earrings).
Note that some of the bead colors are custom blends... they may or may not be repeatable (one-of-a-kind alert...!).
If you are interested in only a subset of these beads (or a custom allotment), contact me about a custom order.
NEXT DAY SHIPPING is my general policy*---I am excited about purchases and eager to get my creations on their way to their new home! HOWEVER, due to life, circumstances, & postal service cooperation, items may not ship for 1 to 3 business days.
[*Does not apply to custom orders / made-to-order]
PACKAGING: Jewelry and miniatures are wrapped in protective cotton padding, inserted into a beautiful, small white box (sized to the item) and mailed inside a manila padded bubble mailer.
SHIPPING INSURANCE is provided for all items. If your order goes astray in the post, you will be issued a FULL REFUND.
**SPECIAL NOTE** ON CUSTOM ORDERS / MADE-TO-ORDER ITEMS: As noted above, my schedule is crazy this summer, so custom orders and made-to-order creations ordered between 11 JUNE 2017 and 5 AUGUST 2017 will not be viewed until 6 AUGUST 2017. This means that all special orders or requests for special orders will be treated as though they were submitted on 6 AUGUST 2017. This is NOT the norm for my shop and I apologize in advance for any inconvenience.
CUSTOM ORDERS / MADE-TO-ORDER GENERAL POLICY: *Read the whole paragraph below* Allow 2-3 weeks creation time for your custom order (unless specified otherwise by the listing) in addition to shipping time. My policy for custom orders is to SEND A PHOTO of the completed item to the customer for confirmation/approval before shipping. If the item does not meet with your approval, you do not have to buy it--and rather than shipping the item, I will make it available for others to purchase. If you do not reply to the confirmation message within one week, I will assume that you are satisfied and proceed with shipping. If you confirm, it will go out with the mail the following day!
