Your Orders

You will receive an emailed invoice when we bill and ship your order. Most orders leave our warehouse the same day they were placed!

When you receive your order, open it and carefully check all items:

  • Contact us within two weeks of receiving your purchase if there is a problem, and we will fix it!
  • If goods arrive damaged, please keep packaging intact for inspection by the carrier.

If you have questions, please email us, or call 1 (800) 366-2156 (8am - 4pm PT). We're happy to help!

Our warehouse is in Washington State, which means that WA-State customers are subject to Destination-Based Sales Tax. If you are tax-exempt, update your account prior to placing your order.

Payment Options

We accept MasterCard, Visa, Discover, American Express, and payments via PayPal.

When using PayPal, you must ship to an address that's already in their system.

Factory Packs

Factory packs are sold just as we receive them from the manufacturer. The number of beads in a factory pack depends on the size of the bead. Returns are not accepted on opened or partial factory packs.

Out-of-Stock Items (Pre-Orders & Back Orders)

Back orders and pre-orders are available for select items. A pre-order allows you to reserve brand new stock before it arrives at our warehouse. A back order allows you to order something that is not new, but is currently out of stock. Pre-ordered and back-ordered items are handled the same way.

In-stock items in your order will be shipped immediately. Back-order and pre-order items will be sent together in a single shipment once all out-of-stock goods are received.

Domestic back orders will ship via the cheapest method up to $4.95 flat rate. Domestic back orders of $99+ will ship for free.

International back orders will ship via the cheapest method.

To cancel an out-of-stock item, please log-in to your account and submit a case with your request.

If you aren't able to order the item you want, please contact us about special orders.

Estimated In-Stock Date:

  • Contact us for more information about items with an Unknown in-stock date or items that are available only by Special Order.
  • We make a good faith estimate of the timeline for receipt of goods to our warehouse, however many variables outside our control may impact the delivery date (international holidays, political events, availability of raw materials, manufacturer stock levels, minimum order quantities, customs, etc.). We update these dates as new information becomes available.


We follow the highest Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). This is a set of requirements designed to ensure that all companies that process, store or transmit bankcard information maintain a secure environment. We also use Trustwave, a globally-trusted internet security and compliance brand that routinely scans and probes our website and online store for vulnerabilities.
