I can’t see the price of shipping. How much do you charge for shipping?

Shipping charges don’t show up until you click checkout from the shopping cart.

In most cases beads can be sent as large letters (less than 20mm thick). Pricing is

Shipping within Australia = $2.50
Shipping elsewhere = $4.00 (up to 50g)

Larger beads need to be sent as parcels. Pricing is

Shipping within Australia = $7.50
Shipping elsewhere = NZ $12, US & Canada $16, Europe $21

Either way pricing will be confirmed in checkout before you need to commit.

I do combine shipping where weight allowances allow.

Extra cover for loss or damage is available on request
Within Australia - additional $3.80 (up to $100) + $1.50 for every $100
International - additional $9.60 (up to $100) + $2.50 for ever $100

Is your site secure?

Yes. You pay through PayPal, the world's premier electronic payment solution, not through this site. We never even see your credit card number; PayPal just tells us that you've paid and we ship you your stuff. We get your money through PayPal later.

Do I have to have a PayPal account to buy?

No, you can pay with your credit card without a PayPal account.


Do you accept custom orders?

Both the glass and myself have limitations but I'm happy to take requests and give it a go.


Will glass beads break easily?

Many mass produced beads are not annealed, giving glass beads a bad reputation. All my beads are annealed in a digitally controlled kiln, removing any stress from the glass, created when making the beads. This does not mean they will not break if not handled with care.


What glass do you use?

I mostly use Effetre (Italian glass, made on the island of Murano), I also use glass from the United States, Germany and New Zealand.


Do you paint the designs on?

No, I don’t use any paint, all designs are made with glass. The only materials I do add are gold, silver, copper, palladium, mica and occasionally cubic zirconias.
