Item details

It is almost impossible to photograph the stunning fire of these rare opal chips from Honduras! When the light catches them, they flash incredibly deep colors through the entire spectrum. These specific beads shown have been sold but the photographs represent the color, size and quality of the rest. The last picture shows some made into threader earrings, mounted on a 1 mm chain.

The beads are approximately 3-7mm long by 3-4mm wide by 3-4 mm high. They have a hole approximately 1 mm through them. Number per gram varies. I am only listing one gram, but will be happy to make a special listing just for you with as many grams as you wish to purchase. I am pricing them at $15 per gram, $3 per carat. You can either tell me how much you want to spend or how many beads you want.

As these are natural stones, there are imperfections in each to some degree and no two will ever be alike. If you are unhappy with these when you receive them, I will accept your return.

I will ship to many other countries. Please ask me for a shipping quote for you!

I also accept Google Wallet and Checkout by Amazon as payment methods. If you wish to use one of these, please purchase my items and then message me for an invoice. Thanks!


Some of my pieces are available for wholesale but not all. Please ask!

I have listed US shipping as an option on all items, and have added some other countries for the smaller lightweight items. I am willing to ship to many other countries, but I would like to discuss it before you purchase if it's not shown already.

I like to ship Priority Mail. First Class is cheaper up to a certain weight/distance. Fed Ex is cheaper than Parcel Post in all instances I have checked so far and will be used for heavier items.

Many items can be combined for substantial savings of shipping, but the shipping costs will depend on the sizes as well as the weights. Please ask me to quote the shipping to your location before finalizing your purchases if they are large or heavy.

I'm going to insure if item is over $100. You will need to participate in the claim process in order to receive a refund. So - if the PO drives a truck over it (I've seen it happen!), I will need you to take the broken parts to the PO so I can get reimbursed, and then I will reimburse you.


USPS money orders, PayPal, Etsy direct checkout. We can discuss personal checks - email me! momsbasement [!at] Taxes - only collecting on GA - show me a GA resale permit & you can bypass this! Cancellation - If I do a custom order, it will be in our personal agreement.

I did have Amazon payments but they changed that around and I'm not sure it still works - message me if you need to use it and I will check.

Returns & exchanges

I will refund the purchase amount plus shipping in both directions if item was misrepresented. If the item was damaged, I will provide a full refund of cost + shipping paid upon receipt of documentation.

If you just don't like the item, it may be returned in the condition in which it was shipped, and I will refund your purchase price when I get it back, but you will pay shipping in both directions.

Additional policies

When I make a piece of jewelry, I expect it to last for years under normal usage. If a piece should break, I'd like to hear about it and see if I can repair or revise it for you. I learn from my mistakes, so if your piece fails, please contact me! I sell replacement wire hanging kits for the bird feeders. They should last two or three years in normal use.

Custom orders are welcomed - let's talk! We can set terms in advance.

I have glass pendants available in small wholesale quantities with display stands.
