Many of the glass beads used in our jewellery range are handmade and the gemstones are unique so we cannot guarantee future stocks of a particular design and there may be small variations in size or colour of items. This is normal for handmade products and, in our view, adds to the charm and uniqueness of each piece.
Please note that we may need to charge a little extra for making jewellery that is larger than that shown on the website. You will, of course, be informed of any increase in price.
