Q:  I want to order different sizes of the same beads - what's this about I can only order one size at a time?

Q: I paid you a few weeks ago, where is my order?
A: We mail within a few days of receiving payment and it takes about 12 days to reach you. However, because of occasional delays by customs or the post office, we can’t write off lost until after 30 days. If this is the case, mail payment details to the below address.
Q:  Are your stones dyed?
A:   Most of our stone is natural color, except many of the jade and all the red coral.  As usual these days, these may be dyed – but the color is fixed and does not come off.
Q:  How many beads are in a strand?
A:  Most strands are 16-inches long = 400mm.  So just divide this by the bead diameter.  eg: 40 x 10mm beads to a strand.  However, pearl strands are only 15-inches long.

A:  Sure!  Just click here for details.
