This is a Lake Superior agate that I cut in half, ground smooth, and tumbled. The outer surface was left in it's natural state. It remains in it's natural shape. It does have natural inclusions. Each half measures about 30-34mm long x 10-15mm thick.
I package items in a padded shipping envelope. The contents are checked by two people for accuracy. The items are wrapped in bubble wrap or sometimes recycled shipping materials. I ship first class mail with delivery confirmation in the United States.
I use paypal and credit card payments through etsy.
Returns & exchanges
I am most interested in the buyer being happy with a handmade item. My hope is that the buyer can appreciate that a purchase is supporting an artist. I will refund any damaged or lost item in full including shipping.
If you have any questions about an item please convo me before you purchase it and maybe I can help clarify something.
I presently do not take custom orders.
If I reserve something for you I will email you to let you know. I will keep it reserved for you until you let me know you don't want it. Please note that there is no obligation or pressure to buy a reserved item.
I can adjust quantities in each listing. You can convo me and I'll change the listing.
All my beads are different, so with pricing I try to categorize them according to difficulty....layers, how many sides are glazed, how big they are, carving etc...
All artists are encouraged by a purchase. I enjoy buying handmade items as much as I enjoy making them. What you buy from an artist won't be perfect. It may not be exactly what you expect, but it is handmade. Buying handmade is unique and rewarding but what I like the most is that it is personal...no two artists do anything the same. I think that is the best part of buying handmade.
