All of the items I sell are handpicked by me. They are all vintage and have never been used. I am very particular about what I list because I too am a jewelry designer. I would never sell what I would not use in my own designs. I would only use high quality true vintage items with my focus on Japanese, antique Czech, West German, Austrian, and Italian glass beads
~ 4 vintage Miriam Haskell white opal mottled 1-1/2 inch brass head pins.
~ The half round glass measures approximately 16mm (they are handmade lampwork so no two are the same) and there is patina to the brass pins. The brass pin is in the center of the glass.
~ These drops are very old. They were Made In Japan and directly from the Miriam Haskell warehouse.
~ Some of them will have the Made In Japan tag on them.

Returns & exchanges
If you are unhappy with your purchase, please contact us for an authorization number before returning an item and also before leaving negative feedback. Please return within 7 days. We have to enforce the 7 day return time because in the past we have received returns several months after purchase. We will only send a refund if returned within a week after contacting us. Please wrap items in bubble wrap and mail with a tracking number to the address on the package. Please send us the tracking number so we will look for the package in mail. We have delivery pick up so we only go to the post office if we are expecting a return. After inspection by me, a refund will be issued for the item less shipping charges. Buyer will pay all shipping charges.
We try very hard to give you as accurate a description as possible. Everything we purchase is in uncirculated condition......"new vintage". When we purchase vintage beads they are oftentimes in the original packaging which makes it easier to provide exact information.
Vintage beads and crystals may have ever so slight flaws. They don't take away from the beads but this goes along with purchasing vintage beads anywhere. Please keep this in mind as they are should not be considered defects.
DISCLAIMER: Also, all items purchased from Bonkers For Beads are not meant to be used by children of any age. We purchase our items as you see them. We do not know what the metal chains content is nor how the glass beads were made. Everything is sold as is and we are not liable. We do not anticipate any issues, however, since we are not the makers of the items we sell, we do not know what is in them...they are all vintage.
