I hand build these little beads from Coleman's Porcelain, decorate with slip and then fire the bezeesus (technical term) out of them to 2,340 degrees F. At that temperature, the clay vitrifies into stone. These tiny beads are super sturdy and ready for wear. They weigh about 4gm (0.14 oz)each. so would be fine as earrings, too. I hand build the hanging loop from wire and headpins. They are similar to each other, but are individually made, so you may get a different one than pictured. If this concerns you, I can send you a pic of the one I am sending out to confirm you like it. Please pay attention to the hanging orientation and the horns or lack thereof. Select the variation you would like from the menu before ordering. I will be making more of these in the next month or so. Thank you!
My shipping prices are from the west coast to the east coast. If you live closer to California then the east coast, I will refund any shipping difference over $1. I use USPS unless a different carrier is requested. I have found them to be just fine and also the least expensive. I ship Priority mail, so all pieces under $50 are insured and I insure any purchase over $50 for no extra fee. Shipping upgrades are always welcome. My costs for shipping are actual, so I would have to adjust shipping price to match the upgrade. I package my art very very carefully using recycled materials. Items are usually shipped the day after payment is received, if there will be a delay, I will let you know. I am happy to ship anywhere in the world as well. It just takes too long to put all the countries in the shipping fields and then find the all shipping costs. ANY BOX OVER 4LBS out of country WILL BE CHARGED EXTRA!! This is just how the USPS works, sorry about that. Just convo me and I will find you a shipping quote.
I accept Paypal and, in special circumstances, a personal check (which has to clear before I ship the piece). If you want me to reserve something for you, please let me know when you expect to pay for it. I expect payment for reserved items within 3 days. One should really submit payment within 3 days of "buying" something just out of common courtesy. If it has been more than 3 days, I reserve the right to cancel the sale. Of course, those that pay right away are golden :)
Returns & exchanges
If an item is damaged in transit, please send me a picture of the damage and I will make you a replacement as close to the original as I can get. Right now I do not offer an exchange or return policy, but if you are unhappy for any reason please let me know, I am sure we can work something out.
I accept wholesale requests, but they can require up to 1 month to fulfill.
Bulk purchases will receive a discount or an extra little goody thrown in the box... Please feel free to convo me if you have any questions at all.
