Welcome to The Mad Beader's website for Distinctive Artisan Jewelry made by Karen Hawkins. Designs use precious and/or semi-precious gemstones, pearls and fossils. Most pieces are accented with Swarovski Austrian crystal, Karen Hill Tribes fine, hand-wrought Thai silver(99.9% pure) and/or Balinese sterling beads and findings. It is my goal with every design to creat a piece of "wearable" art with the best materials possible.

Refunds and Exchanges
It is important to me that you love your new piece, so if there are any problems please feel free to contact me. I accept returns within 30 days of receipt of the package (it must be in its original condition, unused and securely packaged for return) for a full refund (less shipping charges) . All returns most use USPS delivery confirmation and insurance for the full value of item(s) returning, I'm not responsible for lost returns. Please contact me for Return Authorization first. All sales are final on custom orders or jewelry that has been altered in any way.
Custom Alterations, Earring Backs and Repairs
I am happy to resize most necklaces and bracelets. All earring backs are made with sterling silver wires, leverbacks or posts, and most earrings that I make can accommodate a change from one form to another to meet your preferences. There may be an additional charge, depending on the change in size or earring back preference, please contact me prior to your purchase for information on any modifications.
Quality workmanship is a priority, therefore I guarantee my work for the first 90 days free of charge excluding shipping, insurance and any replacement materials needed. After 90 days, there will be an additional charge for labor in the repair. Please request repair prices beforehand.
Additional Policies and FAQs
I welcome CUSTOM ORDERS! My pieces are unique and often one-of-a-kind and not all can be duplicated. I love collaborating with customers who want specific gemstones, earrings or bracelets to match.
