These handmade lampwork beads are created from transparent colored glass over white. These beads seem to glow. They have been pressed into a crystal shape and outlined with slightly raised black lines. They have been etched for a soft texture and matte appearance.
These lampwork beads can be made with in several different colors. I have Pale Emerald, Yellow, Medium Blue, Teal, Topaz, Dark Emerald, Dark Purple, Grass Green, Dark Aqua, Grey, Pale Aqua and Amethyst Purple available.
Please specify which color you would like when checking out. Examples of each color are in the last picture.
These beads are MADE TO ORDER. Lead time on these is usually 7 business days. If there will be a delay, I will contact you. There is some variation in batches of glass and reactions with silver glass,but you will receive beads almost exactly like the ones pictured.
If you would like a picture of the beads before shipment to be approved, please leave a note in notes to seller or send me a convo. This will add a 1-2 days delay.
Measurements - 15-14mm x 16-15mm Mandrel size - 1.5mm Number of beads - 2
All my beads are annealed in a computer controlled kiln for strength and durability, and cleaned with a diamond tipped dremel. These are handmade so there might be a slight variance in size.
My pictures are taken in a lightbox with an SLR camera to get the best representation of my work. There are still variances in monitors and so forth. If you have any questions or need more pictures, please let me know.
I am a Self-Representing Artist. Thank you for your support and thanks for looking.
I bought several sets of beads from Heather, and I feel the same way about each set, so I apologize for the cut'n'paste reviews—just buy from this super-talented lamp worker—you will not be sorry!
Heather's bead work is wonderful: gorgeous colors, evenly sized, smoothly finished, and speedily shipped—everything about my purchase was WIN!
I ship with USPS first class domestic with delivery confirmation. Anything within United States is shipped out within 48 hours of payment.
Anything International is sent with First class International USPS. I ship internationally on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.
International Customers: Packages usually take 7-10 days to reach you. However, because of routing issues and customs, please allow 6-8 weeks for delivery. Import duties, taxes, and charges are not included in the item price or shipping cost. These charges are the buyer's responsibility. Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to buying. Customs fees are normally charged by the shipping company or collected when you pick the item up. These fees are not additional shipping charges. I will not put "gift" or a lower amount of value on customs forms. Doing that is against U.S. and international laws.
I do expect payment within three days through paypal. Contact me if you cannot meet this deadline. If I don't receive payment or contact within three days I will relist the item.
I do accept money orders and checks. Please allow up to ten business days for the check to clear before shipment. These methods will delay the shipping of your item which is why most prefer paypal.
Returns & exchanges
If you are not satisfied with your beads, please let me know. I want you to be happy with your purchase.
I accept returns minus shipping costs within one week of receiving your item. Contact me first please.
I'm happy to work with you on custom creations, but sometimes working with reactive silver glass it's hard to recreate something exactly. If you have something in mind feel free to ask.
I do offer wholesale pricing with a minumum purchase. Contact me for more information.
