Terms of Service

► ► ► ►{Store Policies}◄ ◄ ◄ ◄
Your satisfaction is important. If you have any concerns please contact to advise. Please keep in mind I get great deals from Importers and as such bring them to you. Just want the opportunity to share a great deal to my fellow crafters/designers.

Great quality for great prices... Stones I get are usually B or C grade. When I do get A, AA grade stones it will be listed as such for you and will be seen in the price. As the stones can be natural there may be inclusions and colors may vary. I will list the closest measurement of the stone/bead which may vary by mm.

I am not a gemoligist and as such provide the trade name for beads/stones/crystals and not the mineral it is. If you are not aware that there are only 2 types of real Jade, then please be advised, when you see 'Jade' on the listing it is actually a type of Serpentine gemstone.

**Lead Law** California Lead Law, findings are within the guidelines for adult jewelry in case you are wondering. Due to CPSIA laws items in this store are not intended to be used towards making jewelry for children under 13. (Not going to spend $$ for testing and then have to raise prices.)

The picture you see will not depicit the size of the item. Zoom on camera may be used in order to give you a better look at the item. The size of the item will be listed in the description. Color of item/picture may vary on your monitor. I have no control over monitor settings. Natural sunlight lighting is used in order to provide you how the item may appear in different lighting.

If you are unfamiliar with a stone, bead, or crystal and have questions about color/shade please ask before you buy. Pictures are taken to try to depict the best lighting using natural sunlight. Wouldn't it be better to know before hand if you are unsure?
