Item details

Periwinkle Blue Glass Tube African Beads, Opalescent Shimmer / Sky, Ocean Tube Beads / Approx 4x12mm / Vintage Supplies for Making Jewelry

These beads are a beautiful blue, periwinkle almost. Cylindrical tubes, in assorted lengths, and some are more translucent than others. They have a subtle opalescence to them that makes them have a slight shimmer. These beads are old, but I am not sure how old. I have had a hard time finding more information about them. If you know anything about them, please share with me!

They are strung in a loop, which is how African beads are traditionally strung. The strand is approximately 25" long, with approximately 31 beads. These beads are old, and some of them have slight nicks or chips on their edges. They are slightly fragile.

FAQs

Yes! Wholesale options are available, as I gather and curate all of these goods directly from their source. Please message me with any wholesale inquiries. I offer a sliding wholesale discount on items bought in BULK. As the product margins vary widely, the easiest thing is for you to send me a screen shot of your shopping cart. That way I can see exactly what items you are interested in, and let you know what discount I can offer you. Please message me with any wholesale inquiries. Please note: Vinyl Record beads have their own discount scale.

Yes! All WomanShopsWorld orders ship wrapped in festive tissue, so your order will arrive ready to gift. If you would like us to leave out the receipt, say so with a note to seller at checkout!

Hmmmm... with first class international shipping, unfortunately the postal service often will not provide any updates at least until the package reaches its destination country. Sometimes it will not update until it has cleared customs. Once we drop your goodies off at the post office, we put our trust into those fine people that they will get them to you as quickly as possible. With that said, first class shipping does not provide an estimate of how long it will take to arrive internationally. In our experience it can take anywhere from 11-30 days, sometimes a little longer. Of course we always cross our fingers in our customer's favor!

Hmmm... to find out, please click on the tracking number provided in your purchase history. Often the USPS website updates much faster than Etsy's tracing service. There have been several instances, where Etsy is showing a package as being in "pre-transit" when it is showing as having arrived in its destination city when I go to USPS website!

Unfortunately, no. All of our business is done online. We are set up in our stockrooms and in our daily schedules to ship, ship ship! As much as we'd love the company, this translates to our warehouse being a beautiful mess that is just not fit for shopping in person. We've got our goodies listed online and we ship within 1-3 business days. I'd say with the added thrill of receiving a package in the mailbox, it's more fun than shopping in person :-)

Maybe. I accept returns on any un-altered items if you contact me within 3 days of receiving your order. Please contact me BEFORE you return the goods so that I am aware of what items you would like to return. Please note: Any return requests made after 3 days of receipt of goods will incur a 10% restocking fee and tassel/pompom returns will incur a 20% restocking fee. Sorry guys, but it takes a lot of time to pull them and even more time to put the back! I do not accept returns on ribbons, trims, or fabrics that are purchased by the yard. Once they are cut for you, they are yours. I think that's pretty fair, don't you?!
