ORDER TIMELINE (Processing Time)

Our company normally processes all orders within 5-7 business days once payment has cleared, except for beaded curtains which have a processing time of 7-10 business days.  Oftentimes, orders process faster than that but we can’t guarantee a faster processing time.

Made to Order vs. Pre-Made

Check a listing carefully to understand if a product is pre-made and ready to ship or if the product is ordered before it’s handmade (made-to-order).

Both are handmade but the pre-made is shipment ready while the made-to-order products take up to six weeks to be created for you.

Look for the following image if a product is ready for shipment immediately:

Handmade Disclaimer

The product(s) you receive might vary slightly from the product picture due to the nature of your product(s) being 100% handmade to order.

Care Instructions:

Care for your new Suncatcher(s) by:

We make our suncatchers/windchimes/door ornaments to last for years.  They can be hung inside or outside.  If hung outside, be sure the hanger that is attached to the wall or whatever structure the art piece will hang from is strong enough and secured well to that structure. Be sure the ornament does not strike against a wall, tree, etc. in the wind.  If hung outside, please bring inside during severe weather. If hung inside, keep out of the reach of pets and children. To clean, wipe with a damp cloth.

Your Suncatchers can be damaged if:

* The piece strikes against a wall, tree, etc in high wind.

* The piece is struck by hail.

* A child or pet pulls on, tugs on, hangs from, or otherwise is rough with the art piece.

*The piece is cleaned with detergents, soap or very hot water.

*The piece is washed in a dishwasher.

Care for your new Beadwork jewelry or bag(s) by:

Treating the piece carefully as you would any fine piece of jewelry. These are not toys and so are not recommended for small children. Store each piece in the small box it came in or wrapped in tissue separately in other jewelry box to prevent it becoming entangled with other items. To clean, wipe gently with a damp cloth. Do not use detergents or soap, hot water, or jewelry cleaners.

Your Jewelry & Amulet Bags can be damaged if:

*Too much pressure is applied to the jewelry/amulet bag or the jewelry/amulet bag is treated roughly.

*If the bead work is cleaned with detergents, soap or very hot water.

**The piece is washed in a dishwasher or jewelry washer.


Weight and dimensions of the SUN CATCHERS varies depending on the size of the piece of wood, the number of beads, the size of the crystals, etc. The dimensions for each piece is in the description. None of the Sun Catchers & Wind Chimes weighs more than 2 pounds.

Dimensions of the BEADED BIRD NECKLACES varies with each piece but average approximately 12-3/4 inches long from center of clasp to tip of tail. The birds themselves average 4 inches tall and 3-5 inches wide. They are surprisingly light weight. Actual weight varies with each bird but averages approximately 2 ounces.

Dimensions of the AMULET BAGS varies with each piece. The dimensions for each piece is in the description.
