What if I want to order more than one necklace? to top of page
If you want to buy 2 or more necklaces, you will have to do each transaction separately. We apologize for this but we will be changing this procedure in the future when we have the shopping cart in place. Let us know on the emails if you are making multiple orders so we may better organize your order and payment.
I purchased a necklace but you still show it on the web site. to top of page
Many times, if the necklace is available as a limited edition, we will continue to show it on the web site. Even with one-of-a-kind, we may still continue to show it if it can be made with another combination of beads.
What if the necklace is unavailable? to top of page
If that particular necklace is unavailable because of any of the reasons below or otherwise, we may suggest some other bead combinations for your consideration. If acceptable, the necklace will need to be made which may delay the shipping process. This information will be discussed through email, if appropriate.
Why are some necklaces/beads unavailable? to top of page
Our necklaces are designed and made individually as one-of-a-kind or limited editions. Some of the beads that we use are also difficult to obtain. For this reason, it is not possible for us to maintain an inventory of a specific design.
With that said, certain hematite beads are hard to get or may be out of stock. We try to keep our own stock but it isnít always possible to have everything on hand. Other non-hematite beads may be bought through auction in small quantities, or as one-of-a-kind or vintage beads. One-of-a-kind beads may include handmade beads or those beads we have only purchased one of and cannot find again. Vintage beads are those that are no longer produced in that particular shape or size or color, etc. and we may have only limited quantities on hand.
How will my purchase be shipped? to top of page
At this time we are shipping only through the USPS (United States Postal
Service) first class mail. For now a set shipping/handling charge per
necklace is accessed of $2.00 per necklace. We will send an email to confirm shipping date. Please
allow 7 to 10 working days for first class mail to your area. Please be
surprised and elated if it gets there sooner as the post office constantly
What if I want to purchase other items on the website and pay for them altogether? to top of page
Until we have a shopping cart available, you will need to purchase each item
through separate emails and separate payment. We apologize and appreciate
your patience as we are working to change it.
