those are beautiful! I love the green one with the spiral. What are you going to do with them?

The bigger Goddess Bead in the middle?

They're going to get listed on http://molivan.etsy.com. I finally did it. I opened a shop.

I might string some of them before selling.

So, do you (or anyone else reading this) have any favorite styles of goddess bead? Not necessarily the ones depicted.

Someone asked if I'm going to do Willendorf type beads, for instance.

I LOVE THEM!! If it's not too much to ship to Australia I'll definitely be buying one or three!

The extent of my out of country shipping knowledge is presently limited to having shipped a swap doll to Canada.

Since I don't have an appropriate scale at home, I could package one of these beads as I'd send it to you (in a white cardboard jewelry box inside a padded envelope) and ask at the post office how much to Australia? That would give me some idea. I could also ask about packaging materials because these beads take anywhere from 1 to 2 or more hands-on hours to make, sometimes working under a magnifying glass, and I'd be heartbroken if anything happened to one. (I don't think I can insure items to an overseas destination either.)

You should try the UPS store! They have a "pack and ship promise"... if you let them pack it there at the store, they'll guarantee it's safety, domestically or internationally.


The Pack & Ship Promise applies to packages:

* Packed by associates, and using only new materials purchased at, a participating location and
* Shipped, by the location that packed it, via UPS on the centerís UPS account to any domestic or international destination serviced by UPS.

Give them a call... it would probably be worth your while!

Thanks, I'll give them a look. I did send one art doll through them a few years ago and it cost a fortune for them to pack it, but I'll scope out all my options.
