REPRESENTATION OF GOODS
We try to provide accurate information about the products we sell.
Care is taken to ensure that the pictures on our website depict colours as accurately as possible. However, variations may occur due to limitations in photographic reproduction or the colour settings on different computer monitors.
The shade of colour may vary between different batches of beads. Please make sure you order enough beads to complete your project.
Terms such as gold, silver, bronze, copper, amethyst, topaz, etc are descriptive of the colour and are not made from these materials unless otherwise stated. Similarly, the term 'crystal' refers to transparent glass not a lead crystal or semi-precious stone unless otherwise stated. Antique is a description of a product that has been made to look antique.
As many items we sell are handmade or made from natural stone, for instance Bali silver products, dichroic glass products, lampwork beads and gemstone items, size and weight may vary slightly from the description. If you order more than one handmade or stone product, we do our best to ensure that we send items that are as similar as possible.
Colours may fade over time if exposed to direct sunlight or water.
If any goods are unsatisfactory, we will accept their return according to our Returns Policy.
We want you to be totally happy with your purchases and with the service you receive.
