above  $100 depends on weight and dollar value - please ask for current rate quote including insurance.   Postal Rate varies so much today.

INTERNATIONAL ORDERS - must be paid in US DOLLARS through PAYPAL ONLY! shipping costs and times vary, therefore I will inquire as to your preference. Global Priority Mail is a fixed rate... and relatively fast delivery but expensive.

FAQ's  - Frequently Asked Questions

1.  THERE IS NO PRINT CATALOG - please do NOT request one.

2.  Items "in stock" such as those from "Unique", Clearance, Hearts, Seafans or Venus pendants that are IN STOCK can be shipped immediately. All other lampwork is "made to order" and you will have to wait for production.
I DO NOT STOCK beads (too much variety and no time!) including chocolates and Buckeye Beads - these are made to order!
 NOTE: At some times in the year, chocolate and buckeye bead ORDERS MAY TAKE UP TO FOUR WEEKS- due to heavy backorders. (i.e. football season for Buckeye Beads (please see new policy on Buckeye Bead page), Valentine and Christmas for Chocolates)

PLEASE NOTE:  --  I CANNOT guarantee time-frame for ANY LARGE LAMPWORK ORDER. Large orders may be accepted if buyer will accept partial shipments over a longer period of time, AND NO deadline is involved.)

-- And NO - I will not "cash your international money order and refund the balance... ".and  

I DO NOT OFFER FREE SAMPLES, WHOLESALE, or DISCOUNTS:  my beads are individually hand made and reasonably priced... I make a very low profit margin over production costs.

RETURNS: Custom order items are not returnable. All other stock item returns subject to
15 percent (of bead value) handling fee,
no refund of shipping/handling or postage, and return postage is your responsibility. Items received or returned damaged will not be replaced, (see postal insurance section) damages recieved by buyer due to postal handling must be processed through the postal claim system - which MAY TAKE more than 30 days to resolve. INTERNATIONAL ORDERS ARE NOT INSURED.

 


LARGE ORDERS MAY TAKE 4-6 WEEKS!
I will not do any large order with a delivery time frame guarantee.  If you need a guaranteed delivery - ask first... do not wait until after ordering  - and then ask for a specific delivery date.

PAYMENT:
Payment due prior to delivery.
Cash, Check, or Money Order, or PAYPAL electronic payment. Sorry - no credit cards except through PAYPAL.
INTERNATIONAL PAYMENTS MUST BE THROUGH PAYPAL.  Please ensure that you identify your order number in the SUBJECT LINE OR COMMENTS BLOCK of PAYPAL.....
