Item details

Pink & White Paeony Flower with Butterfly Satake Glass Lampwork Square Flower Bead sra

Thank you for your looking at my bead. I am a Japanese glass bead artist, Ayako Hattori living in Nagoya City, Japan.
This is ‘Tonbodama,’ Japanese style lampwork bead. "Tonbodama" loosely translates to "dragonfly eyes" in English.
Approximate size of bead is 2.4 cm x 2.3 cm x 2.0 cm. The hole size is 13 mm x 6 mm.
The square bead is originally Obidome, ornament for Japanese kimono belt. But I often use it as pendant through cord made of leather, antique fabric or braided rope. This type of bead has big hole, so I can change string easily.
The beads are made of Japanese Satake glass. This glass has very soft and subtle colors with a low melting point.
Please take a moment and look at the delicate color and designs of my bead. White camellia flowers bloom in the snow. Daurian redstart birds are flying around them. Such beauty can only be found in Japanese Tonbodama! I am proud to sell the bead outside Japan. The pattern is only on the top side of the bead. As with all handcrafted items, no two are alike (although similar).

The fee of shipping and handling includes postal tracking system and limited insurance of Japanese postal service. The limit of the insurance is 6000 yen, about 55US$.

Would you please ask me any questions in easy English.

When you purchase pendant and bead together, I will refund shipping fee of the bead, because you can ship many items together as EMS and the insurance is no limit.
Thanks for considering!
ayako

I ship them from Japan, so it takes cost and time a bit. I ship to most countries of Northern America, Asia and Europe.
My shipping charge is not cheap, but the price includes postal tracking system and limited insurance from Japanese post office. The limit of the insurance is 60US$.
When you buy the insurance, any postal accidents during shipping from sender to recipient are compensated by Japanese post office.
Japanese postal system is very kind and reliable.
But recipient needs to show proof of accident to recipient's post office first.


If you got postal accident, would you please let me know first.
Please don't send back items to me soon.
I will let you know how to claim refund from the insurance.

And, please let me know within 50 days after your payment.
After more than 60 days after payment, we can't use refund system of paypal and I need to send back money to you through paypal again.
It means you need to pay paypal remittance charge and I can't get back remittance charge of your payment. Both of us lose money.
And I need time to ask situations of the delivery to my post office before refunding money.
So, would you please contact me within 50 days.
I can't promise to you to refund all your money, if you can't do it.

Thank you for your help and patience.

Dear buyers living in the USA

I am afraid American postal service is not reliable recently. I have gotten many postal accidents of package to the USA. Packages and items were lost and damaged.

When you order my items, you buy postal insurance from Japanese post office. So I promise to you refunding money, even if you get postal accident. But your help is needed to get money back. We need to show proof of accident. I mean recipient needs to show broken item to recipient's post office and get "damaged report" from them, when the item is broken. When the package is lost, it is easier. Please just let me know. I will claim inspection to Japanese post office. They will find the loss and refund money to us. But the inspection takes time. Usually it is about one month.

Japanese post office is still kind and honest, even though it takes time always. So, would you please trust their insurance. I hope money will be refunded anyway.

I am really sorry for your trouble. If you don't agree it, please don't order from me. I can't ship my item to the USA without your agreement. If you order without reading it, please feel free to cancel your order. I will refund money soon with my pleasure.
Without your help and co-operation, I can't keep on working with you. I appreciate your understanding and patience. I really wish American postal service gets better soon.

Dear All Buyers

All my items are shipped from Japan.
Import duty for glass item or jewelry is very expensive in some countries.
The rate is totally different by country and kind of item.
Some countries don't take any charge and some take much.
In addition, governments sometimes update the rate.
I am afraid It is impossible for me to know current rate of every country.
I am so sorry.
When you want to know it before you order, would you please ask it to the customs of your country.
I appreciate your cooperation.
