What will your beads look like?
At Yonder Star Designs you can specify how you want your beads to look. Other memory bead makers don't offer you any choices in the way your bead will look, so along with a high quality resin coating that no one else offers you can help design the look of your memory beads.
So we all know what look you prefer, please see the samples on this page. You can also get an idea of how to word your description on the Order Form so we are all on the same page.
Different types of flowers create different effects and colors in your beads, regardless of their original colors. There is no way of knowing ahead of time exactly how your flower petals will react when made into memory beads. You may love one of the beads shown, but you have a different type of flower that will not "do" the same thing as they do in the sample you like. We will try our best to get your beads as close as we can to the beads that you like but, keep in mind your particular flowers are the real deciding factor in the end.
We like to let the flower petals determine the color of the beads, unless we can tell the color of the bead will not be aesthetically pleasing, then we add tints to "help" your beads to be beautiful. Unless you specify on the order form "Do Not Add Tint" you can assume that we may add tints as needed.
We are starting to add accent swirls of a complementary color in our beads, we are very pleased with the outcome. Watch for sample photography that will be available soon. If you think it sounds like something you would like, you can add it to your order form by writing "ok to add an accent swirl" and name the color if you want.
Please make a note on the Order Form laying out any special instructions you wish us to follow. If you are unsure call 843-530-7948, and we will give you our advice based on our experience.
Since we make all beads according to what is on the Order Form, it is very important that your instructions be on the Order Form when we start your order. If you text or email us instructions, there is a very good possibility they may not make it onto your order form. So, to avoid any issues, please call with any instructions that you want added to your order if you have already sent your order from in. Speaking with us directly is the best way to verify the Order Form is up to date.
