I ship via First Class mail every day except Sundays and national holidays. These beads will be securely packed and shipped in a padded mailer. I use combined shipping; you pay on low price for postage. I will e-mail you when your purchase is on its way, and provide a tracking number and estimated date of arrival.
Since jewelry is fragile I ship every item via USPS First Class mail in a cotton-filled gift box and a padded mailing envelope or in a sturdy box, to protect your order.
In the case of an international order any additional customs fees would be the responsibility of the purchaser.
I also ship to APO and FPO addresses at no additional cost.
At this time I accept Direct Checkout, PayPal and money orders. If paying by money order, please use USPS money orders as these are the easiest to track in case of loss, and the easiest for me to cash. Payment is expected 7 days at the latest after placing an order. I ship within two business days after receiving payment. If there are any mailing delays I will notify you. Thank you!
Returns & exchanges
Since I want every customer to be happy with their purchase, I will be happy to accept returns for up to 90 days,on items which are damaged, don't fit, or are unacceptable for some other reason. Just notify me as soon as you can, send it back, and I'll be glad to issue a refund, or send you another item in exchange.
I do not knowingly sell items on Etsy which contain high levels of lead. Crystal, especially crystal with red colors, by its nature, contains a small percentage of lead. I advise my customers to keep my jewelry out of the hands of infants and small children who could possibly ingest some small components.
Also, I often use magnets as clasps. These magnets are small but powerful and ought to be kept away from pacemakers and electronic devices. Thank you!
