Posting beads here on the blog is much easier than putting them on my website. I'm going to keep doing it this way for as long as it works because it has the added bonus of getting lots of hits to the blog. It can't hurt, and it's easy. That's what I'm after.
Now I'm going to write up a simple explanation of How To Buy Beads, which I'll either post in the sidebar here, or copy and paste every time I put new beads up. Why re-write it every day? Silly! And before I do that, I want to point out the new Follow By Email gadget at the top left of this page. I haven't tested it yet, but I think if you subscribe in that little box, you'll automatically get an email when I publish a new blog post. How cool! How efficient! How speedy! This could be really good if you want to be the first to know when there are new beads. Try it out!
OK, now for the blurb, and then beads to follow.
Here's to simplification, organization, and inspiration!
How To Buy Beads:
The beads are numbered from LEFT to RIGHT, above each picture.
Please order by number, not description.
To order, send me a NEW EMAIL at firstname.lastname@example.org.
DO NOT reply to an older email, or to the email announcement I send if you're on my regular Beadist Mailing List. Those emails get tangled up in Gmail's "conversation grouping," and you may not get your beads.
Tell me how many beads you want in total, and all beads you'll choose from, in order of preference.
If your email is first, I'll send you a PayPal invoice. I only take PayPal.
Bead numbers that are RED mean that bead is SOLD. I update them as quickly as I can.
"Naked" Bracelet Beads are now sized to fit BOTH Troll and Pandora! Weee!
Silver lined beads ONLY fit Troll.
All Bracelet Beads are offered as "naked," meaning NOT lined with silver.
They are $20.
If you want silver, I will add it for you.
These are $30, and remember, silver lined beads only fit Troll.
PLEASE SPECIFY Naked or Silver when ordering.
Silver linings MUST be ordered when you order your beads.
You CAN NOT send them back to me at a later date to have them lined.
I offer FREE SHIPPING on all beads, everywhere in the world!
US orders are shipped USPS with delivery confirmation.
International orders are also USPS, but are not registered or trackable.
If you want this, it's $15 extra, and probably not necessary. It's up to you.
I ship once or twice a week. Always on Friday, and sometimes Tuesday or Wednesday. If you're in a hurry for your beads, please let me know. Otherwise, plan on Friday shipments.
THANK YOU for buying my beads! I LOVE you ALL!
OK. Got it? Questions? Ask me so I can clarify for everyone.
Now... want some beads? Today I have all Bracelet Beads. Please read the info above so you know what to do. First, two pictures of these beads, Silver-lined, and Naked. I prefer them with silver. I just think it gives them a nicer, more finished look. But I see from your responses to my Marketing Research, and to my little survey on Facebook, that a lot of you would rather not pay for the silver. It might just be possible to make everybody happy here... well, almost everybody. If you want silver-lined Pandora beads, I don't offer that yet. Anyway, look at the difference between Silver-lined and Naked Bracelet Beads...
