BACKORDERS: Updated April 16th, 2014
As of April 16th users have the ability to enable or disable backordering. Between the Bill to and Ship to sections on the first screen of the check out process, there is now a backorder check box. If this box is left unchecked, there will be NO backorders for the order. Any item that is short or out will ship as-is. A refund will be issued to the method of payment within 3 business days. Feel free to email or call us to check on the availability status of any item.
If the box is checked, your items will be backordered. When the item restocks it will ship to you at no charge.
Please allow 2 to 8 weeks for backorders to arrive.
PLEASE be aware that the default position for all orders is NO backorders. The box must be checked to enable backordering.

VISIT OUR STORE:
We are located in Denver just off of I-70 and Harlan (30 minutes from Denver International Airport). If you live in or are visiting Colorado, we'd love to have you visit us. Call us for easy directions. If you wish to take a purchase with you, we will need a photocopy of your state sales tax license. Otherwise, we are required to collect 7.6% Colorado State & local sales taxes on your purchase. Showroom hours are the same as our regular business hours. Please allow time for checking out.
DO YOUR OWN TESTING:
We cannot be responsible for a material's suitability for a particular application. Most glass bead coatings are stable and durable, but generally are of unknown chemistry and age, and should be approached accordingly. Therefore we urge you to do your own testing where coated materials, as well as acetates (sequins) or other plastics, might be subjected to washing, dry cleaning, or sun exposure. Also not all cements or adhesives are suitable for some applications, particularly foil or mirror backed imitation stones.
We specialize in stocking items that are rare and unusual and therefore limited in quantity. For this reason, there will always be items in our inventory which may sell out. Also, contemporary beads are produced in relatively limited editions, depending on market demand. From batch to batch even the "same" bead is likely to vary in color tone. Keep this in mind when planning your productions.
We know there are times when it is difficult to visualize exactly what an item looks like. Although we describe and photograph our merchandise as concisely as possible, you may wish to see the actual piece. If a particular color tone, texture, finish, etc. is critical to your project, we recommend you order samples before ordering in quantity. This can save you the cost of returning unsuitable merchandise and allow you to compare items for compatibility. Samples & Sample cards are not returnable or refundable.
Gift certificates are a great way to avoid having to make a decision about what to give somebody for a special occasion or just to say thanks for any reason. There is no "fee" and we email the certificate directly to whomever you wish. Please click here for the Gift Certificate page.
