Terms and Conditions
Every care is taken to describe each item accurately and honestly, and we use photographs to portray colour and size as closely as possible. However, differences can occur due to the monitor settings you use to view these pictures, over which we have no control. In the case of handmade beads, and gemstones, especially the original lampworked items, please note that these items are usually one-off creations and as such, even beads within the same set may have differences in colour and size. To most people, this is the intrinsic beauty of the pieces, and is how we intend them to be seen. If you are unsure whether the item is what you are looking for, please contact us at email@example.com, and we will help you as best we can. We endeavour to answer all emails within 24 hours.
If, after receiving your item, you change your mind, you can return the item, (except earrings) within 14 days for a refund. However, postage costs will not be refunded. Earrings are excluded from this policy for health and hygiene reasons. Please email us first to let us know. It is recommended to return the goods via recorded or special delivery, as if they do not arrive, we will be unable to process a refund.
If, when your goods arrive, they are damaged or not as described, please email us within 3 days to let us know. We may ask you to provide us with a photograph of any damage, in order to pursue a claim with Royal Mail. The goods can then be returned via recorded or special delivery, and upon receipt, we will refund the full cost and postal charges, unless you would prefer a replacement. In this case, it will be sent out to you at no further cost. In the event that you choose a different item, (e.g. there was only one of the original item) you may have to pay any difference in cost. We will sort this out with you before proceeding.
If your goods do not arrive within 7 working days, please let us know and we will chase it up with Royal Mail. All correspondence should be made to firstname.lastname@example.org
Caring for your items:
Glass beads are very strong, but they ARE still glass. Please don’t strike them against hard or abrasive surfaces, as this will cause damage. Never let small children play with your beaded jewellery as the beads can cause them to choke. None of our pieces are guaranteed to withstand children, animals or severe abuse. It is recommended to keep all items in their original box when not being worn. Swarovski crystal items are also made of glass and the above also applies.
