Autumn Statement NecklaceSarah Cryer Beadwork
On holiday until April 15th.
I've been using beads to make jewellery for many years, and around 14 years ago I discovered beadweaving and an occasional hobby became an obsession. Since then I've become known as an innovative beadwork designer, publishing tutorials, blogging, and selling supplies, kits and unique finished beadwork. I've won multiple awards from the UK Beadworker's Guild for my beadweaving and bead embroidery, along with awards elsewhere and features in beadwork publications and online. Beadwork is a real love for me and it's a pleasure to share that love by passing on my work to customers for them to enjoy for years to come.
If you'd like to learn more about how I bead and why, have a look at the Indecisive Beader blog on my website at www.theindecisivebeader.com, or follow The Indecisive Beader on Facebook or Instagram to see what's on my bead mat today and to get shop updates including new item releases. And if you're a beadworker yourself, I have a shop on Etsy selling tutorials for a selected range of my designs, as well as supplies including goldwork wires, hand painted cabochons, beads, crystals and limited edition materials packs (https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/SarahCryerBeadwork) - more details are on my website.
Items purchased from me are always unique - I choose never to make exactly the same design twice and will always deliberately vary colours, shapes or form so that your piece is truly one of a kind. I only sell my finished work through this Folksy shop.
Your item will be packed in a sturdy postal box, and will either be packaged in a me made envelope or in a jewellery gift box - full details are given in the description for each individual item as this will vary according to size, fragility and value.
I will post your item (1st class Royal Mail Standard unless otherwise stated in the item description) within a maximum of 1 working day of payment being received. The only exception is for custom made items, in which case we'll discuss making timelines together.
If you are not happy with your purchase, I will offer a refund (minus P&P costs) if the item is returned in its original condition within 14 working days of receipt. Buyer is to pay return postage. Please contact me first before returning an item.
CARE OF YOUR JEWELLERY
Silver chain and earhooks can be cleaned with a silver cloth or silver dip.
However, please do not clean the actual beadwork or other findings in this way, and keep your handmade jewellery away from direct contact with perfumes and soaps or similar products as they may strip the finish from your beads or damage other parts of the piece. Try especially hard to keep them away from hand sanitiser, as although the alcohol doesn't cause a problem the other chemicals used may well do. The majority of beads used in my work are glass and most are extremely fine, so you will need to treat them with care - they won't break in normal use but they will if you abuse them.
It's generally best to keep your beadwork dry anyway, and this is doubly important if your piece is made using bead embroidery. This is because a hardened felt base fabric and liquids may damage the felt and cause the piece to warp - the description will warn you of this if you're not sure about how your piece was made.
Please feel free to contact me through this shop if you have any questions about the care of your piece or have any problems.
