Made to order: The price listed is for 4 beads. You can choose 4 to 10 beads before you add them to the cart. If you want 1-3 beads or more then 10, please send me a message in Conversations for a special request. My current lead time is 1-2 weeks. (not including the shipping time)
These lampwork glass spacer beads have a beautiful silvery sparkle finish which is sparkle mica dust over a base of transparent bright blue. Mica dust is also known as pixie dust. This finish is permanent because it is fused to the glass in the flame during the beadmaking process. It will not chip, peel, or wear off.
You will receive beads that are very similar to the ones shown in the photos. Measurements are approximately 5mm x 9mm and they are made on 1/16" mandrels for 2mm holes. The holes are cleaned with a rotary tool using a finely coated diamond Dremel bit.
I am a self-representing artist (SRA #A7) and my lampwork beads are handmade by me in my home studio. My beads are created in a torch flame and annealed in a digitally controlled kiln. The holes are cleaned with a rotary tool and a fine coated diamond bit, and they are carefully inspected before I ship them to you. I use high quality Italian, German, and American manufactured art glass, and pure copper, silver, or 22k gold leaf or foil.
Thank you for looking! :)

Shipping & policies
I will ship your beads with the First Class Mail rate in the USA, and First Class Package International Services everywhere else. I package beads securely with layers of cushioned bubble wrap, and a Kraft mailer. This is very plain packaging, and sometimes I may recycle the bubblewrap and packing peanuts. This is to keep shipping costs as low as possible for you.
I will gladly refund any overpayment for shipping costs because I firmly believe in not charging any more than what is necessary to get your package to you. My items come to you from a smoke-free environment. All of my packing materials are stored in a clean, dust free, and pet free area.
CUSTOMS: I use printed labels from the US postal service online tool which will have easy to read and accurate information that I check very carefully. I will check "merchandise" and the item description is "unfinished craft supplies, glass beads". I add the quantity (number of beads) and the value which is your cost of the beads only, not including what you paid for shipping. I will also include the Paypal receipt which is best to have inside the package should it ever need to be opened for inspection.
Please be aware of any customs fees that you may have to pay in your country to receive your packages before you order. Many of my customers will purchase small orders of less than $50USD so paying fees is more affordable to them. My shipping costs are as low as possible, so this helps as well. :)
I accept payments through Paypal and Direct Checkout. I expect payment within 7 days of purchase, but if something comes up and you need more time, I can wait until you are ready, but please notify me via convo.

Return Policy for custom orders and made to order: If you are not pleased with your order, please return the beads within 14 days of receipt and you will receive your money back minus shipping costs.
I will happily accept exchanges! If you buy something from me and you don't think it is going to work with your designs, you can return it to me and choose something else from my shop of equal or lesser value. I will refund the difference if a lesser value. All beads must be returned in original condition. For exchanges, please notify me within 14 days of receiving your package.
Please read carefully in the descriptions and shop announcement about my made to order offerings. It's really flexible and you can pick as many beads as you want, even if it's just a couple for an earring pair. If you want the exact number of beads you see in the pictures, you can choose to purchase the listing.
Made to order bead sets - it's very important to note the lead time which is posted in my Shop Announcement. If you need your beads finished and mailed by a certain date that is sooner than the posted time frame, I can work with you on that and place you as priority on my "to do" list for a Rush Order.
NOTE: For Rush Orders Only - I must be notified and made aware of your needs either before or soon after your purchase. If you order 1 set, I need 2 days to make the beads and then they are mailed on the next day. For 2-4 sets, I will need 2-3 days before mailing. For more than 4 sets please let me know how soon you need them before ordering.
All other orders - Please be aware that once in a while things happen in our lives that we don't expect and there may be a delay in completing your order within the posted lead time. Like studio equipment breaking down or family emergencies, bad weather affecting my semi-outdoor studio, and other interruptions to my work schedule. But I strive to work through whatever that may be and keep on task. If this will be a problem for you, please contact me via convo. I'm a full time beadmaker so my whole life is centered around creating and all aspects of business, and I am online checking in at least once a day.
Communication is very important to me and I am working for you, so your satisfaction is my top priority! I truly appreciate each and every order, because after all, you chose my beads from among so many others out there. :)
