INTERNATIONAL ORDERS:    ATTENTION ... we only accept Master Card or VISA.  No checks or Money Orders.  We do not accept PayPal.

Shipping/Handling Methods & Rates:
The only shipping option for International orders is by US Postal Service First Class OR Priority International Shipping depending upon the size of the order and the shipping destination.   To calculate your shipping rate simply add $10.95 to the rate chart above.  If your order is excessively large or has heavy beads (that weight 1 pound or more), then you can expect up to be charged an additional amount depending upon the actual cost.  Insurance & tracking is NOT available on International orders - shipping is at buyers risk.  You are responsible for paying for any Customs duties or postal fees levied by your postal service or your country's government.   Packages shipped this method usually take a few weeks to arrive, however sometimes your countries customs may hold packages for reasons out of our control.   Please contact your countries customs department directly to verify delivery times from USA prior to ordering.

Due to the high risk of internet fraud, if the billing address and shipping address is DIFFERENT on an international order, we require that payment be made in the form of a USA Money Order prior to shipping package.    To place an order, when checking out select "Mailing in Payment" and print out the order receipt and mailing in your Money Order with it.   We will hold the order for 10 days pending receipt of payment.  Orders are shipping the next day after payment is received.    We DO NOT SHIP to these countries:   Indonesia, Malaysia, Benin, Nigeria, Pakistan, Egypt, Yugoslavia and possibly more.


Return Policy -

RETURN OF BEADS & BEADING PRODUCTS:
Due to the great amount of time involved for web site setup, we DO NOT accept returns or exchanges unless an item has arrived *damaged in some way during shipping.  If this is the case, notify us within seven (7) days of receipt of the merchandise that you would like to return it due to damage.   **** Please DO NOT return items without contacting us first.  Any unauthorized return of beads will either be refused at the post office or if accepted, a 15% restocking fee will apply. 

         We have attempted to accurately depict the products offered on this web site by taking a photograph(s) of the exact items for sale.  The true color of a stone will be viewed differently depending upon your computer monitor settings and products also may appear larger or smaller than its actual size SO please read the sizing details for a product before buying it!  Most photographs have been enlarged to show detail and all measurements are approximate.     
          Rest assured that we put a lot of time and effort into providing quality beads, please read our FAQ's & What Customers Say pages!   If you have a question about a product please read the item description including sizing information OR EMAIL US your inquiry before buying.

*NOTE "Beads Damaged in Shipping" does not include routine imperfections that are common to beads such as:   imperfect edges around the holes and common inclusions you might expect to find in a rock OR occasionally on a strand of beads there might be one or two that have a crack in them, we try to avoid this by hand-selecting, but some stones are prone to cracking.  Some stones are "primitive" in nature and may have pits and/or geode type holes, especially jaspers and large beads, thus we cannot promise that every bead will be perfect.  PLEASE read about Quality and Hand-Selection on our FAQ's page for further details.
