These are small, triangle-shaped earring charms / earring drops. They are 20 mm long and 18 mm wide. They would pair well with ceramic, lampwork, metal, or gemstone beads to make some really great earrings. They are persimmon or brownish orange colored.
I make all of my beads in my studio in Wichita, Kansas. They are all "mid-fired" - to just below 2200 degrees, which makes the beads strong and shock resistant. They won't be harmed by sweat, chlorine, soap, or shampoo, so you can use them with confidence in your creations.
I usually ship the next morning after I receive the order, but I list "1-3 days" because life sometimes can get in the way. I ship via USPS unless you contact me about other methods. Our last Saturday pickup is mid-afternoon; after that packages aren't picked up until sometime on Monday. If I can, I'll get orders received on Friday into the mail on Saturday. Otherwise, orders received on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday will go into the mail first thing Monday morning.
ARE YOU AN INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMER? I understand that if an order total is over a certain amount, your own country may charge you an extra fee. If you're contemplating ordering and you're over the limit, CONVO ME!!! Let's see what we can work out!
International shipping: So far, I've had no problems with international orders arriving in a reasonable amount of time. Please keep in mind that conditions between where I live and where my customers live, can affect the time it takes for orders to arrive. Weather events, political issues, customs issues, and individual policies in each country the package passes through, can slow things down. Other sellers tell me that at times, it can take up to 6 weeks for an order to arrive, so I will not make refunds before 6 weeks after shipping. If your package hasn't arrived after 6 weeks, I will work with you to try to find a solution that makes you happy, which could include refunding the entire cost of your purchase.
PLEASE DO NOT ASK ME TO LIST YOUR PURCHASE AS A GIFT ON THE CUSTOMS FORM!
I accept PayPal and Direct checkout on Etsy, which accepts Visa, Mastercard & Discover. You don't have to sign up for anything and Etsy doesn't keep your card information on file. I also accept Etsy gift cards.

Additional return information
RETURNS: A few of the beads I make are somewhat delicate, and although ceramic beads are pretty sturdy, it's possible they may break in shipment. If this happens to you, I want to know immediately! If I have more in stock, I will ship them at my own expense, right away. If not, I will make some as soon as I can and ship them to you. Please photograph the broken piece - that helps me to be able to duplicate the color of the replacement as close as I can - and attach it to a convo when you contact me.
Please contact me before returning beads or jewelry. You may return your purchase at your expense for any reason, including simply changing your mind. If the return is for a problem of any kind on my part, I will reimburse your shipping costs to you along with the purchase price upon receipt of the package. Refunds are given via the original method of payment only. If you wish to return any item after 30 days, contact me and we'll work it out. I want you to be happy and to feel like your money is well spent!
PRODUCT QUALITY: I try to carefully inspect each and every bead before I list it, but occasionally I may miss things. While handmade items are expected to have occaisional imperfections, if you receive something you think is less than what it should be, I will work with you to make it right - make you a new one, refund your money, or replace with a substitute product.
GUARANTEE: My beads are guaranteed for as long as I'm in business. If you've made jewelry for yourself, a friend, or a customer and one of my beads breaks for any reason, I will replace it at my own cost. Keep in mind, however, that due to factors beyond my control, such as glaze companies discontinuing some of their glazes, I may or may not be able to duplicate the bead exactly. For my rustic (brown clay) pieces, I do not have complete year-round access to the kiln that fires them, so lag time in getting the replacement may be substantial.
CUSTOM ORDERS: If I have what you want in stock, I'm happy to create a reserved order and sell it to you. If I don't have it but it's something I've made before, it could be a few weeks before it's ready since I can't fire until I have a full kiln load. If you've never seen what you want in my shop before, go ahead and ask! If I feel it's something I cannot do, I'll try to help you find someone who can make it.
ALL SALES of listed items go through my Etsy shop! Please don't ask me to remove an item and sell it to you some other way. That's a violation of Etsy's policies.
COPYING: I work very hard to make one-of-a-kind products with creativity and competence. If you are a bead or jewelry artist and you believe something I'm offering has been copied from your work, please contact me. People are more important than things, and I will work with you to resolve the situation in a manner in which we both are comfortable, if I possibly can.
