Designer Jewelry / Handmade Beads: Most of our pieces are either one-of-a-kind or made to order. Many of our pieces require a great deal of time for us to create. Therefore, unless an item is defective or we have made an error when filling your order, we do not offer cash refunds on custom made pieces. However, if for some reason the piece you have ordered is not right for you, we will consider, on a case by case basis, allowing the return for credit towards another purchase. All items are inspected thoroughly prior to shipment.
The larger focal bead measures 19mm x 26mm and is a flat oval in shape. The medium sized beads measure 17mm x 21mm and are flat rectangles. Each of the bagel-shape companion beads measure 7mm x 11mm (Price is for a set of 5 handmade beads). Mandrel/bead hole size is 2mm.
The larger beads in this set are hollow at the core, making them considerably lighter than normal beads but much more durable than blown glass beads.
These beads were individually handmade in our Tuscany studio. They were annealed for strength and durability, cleaned, and inspected for excellence.
Glass used: Italian glass from the Venetian island of Murano.
