SHIPPING is a flat $2.50 within the USA...
no matter HOW much you order - I ship by First Class Mail within the United States of America unless you request a different way.
Isn't that nice?!
When you place your order my Shopping Cart will only add $2.50 for shipping. I will calculate the ACTUAL cost and send you a PayPal Invoice for the difference.
For example, let's say you live in Portugal. Shipping a 6 ounce package to Portugal from the USA is about $7.00. After you place your order, I would send you a PayPal Invoice for the difference - $4.50. I only charge the actual cost to ship to you by US International Mail.
If your Country does not receive US International First Class Mail I will notify you by email. If you approve the charge to ship to you by another Mail Carrier I will send you a PayPal Invoice for the cost above $2.50 that was charged when you placed your order. If you do not approve the additional cost I will refund your entire order payment in full.
Please email if you have questions on shipping. You can also email me your order and I will email you the cost to ship before you place your order.
I LOVE Custom Orders...
please email me and ask about any of my creations that interest you. I welcome Custom Orders, including making things up in different colors.
Orders take 1 to 4 days to create and be ready to ship. If the item is made already it can sometimes ship the same day.
First off, you might like to know that everything on my site is original and was designed and handmade by me.
I create the glass Lampwork beads and Critters on a Torch using rods of fine Art Glass, and then each item is annealed in my digitally controlled Kiln for durability - sort of like making the item like Pyrex, although they are not quite that durable.
I'm always happy to work up Custom Orders. Sizes can usually be adjusted to suit your special project too, including using the Mandrel size you like to work with.
IF YOU are a Designer...
you might appreciate knowing that I do not post Jewelry items I create from the Lampwork Bead Sets that I offer Designers on this website. These original Bead Sets and Focals are yours to design with, so there is no competition here.
IF YOU like clean, scent-free products...
You might appreciate knowing that I do not smoke, nor do I have pets in my Studio. Your order will arrive sparkling clean and scent free.
Speaking of clean, I carefully clean each Lampwork Bead or sculptural item with a Diamond Drill Bit if it has a Mandrel hole. You will receive clean, well made items from me.
YOUR SATISFACTION Is Guaranteed...
The Lampwork I create is guaranteed to please you or you may return it within 7 days in the same new condition for a complete refund. I want you to be happy with your purchase and know that you are safe buying from me.
If you have any questions please email me. I am looking forward to serving you. You will find that I treasure my Customers and work hard to treat them right.
