About Miriam's Beaded Products

PENS are metal and twist-action refillable ballpoint. Beads are stacked and glued into place on a sturdy metal rod. Each pen is packaged with instructions and one extra refill. Additional refills are available with black ink only. Length of the pen from end-to-end ranges from 6 to 6.25 inches, depending on the beaded design. Pens range from medium to lightweight, depending on the beads - but constructed to fit comfortably into both large and small hands. While the same beads and colors may be used, unless specifically noted, Miriam designs each pen as a one-of-a-kind work of art.

BOOKMARKS are pewter and generously carved on both sides to be reversible. All bookmarks measure approximately 6 inches in length from the top of the curve to the end of the handle. The string of artfully designed beads, ranging from 1.5 to 2.5 inches, is designed to drape gracefully over the spine of any size book (hardcover or paperback). While the same beads and colors may be used in more than one item, unless specifically noted, Miriam arranges the beads in a unique combination for each bookmark. Pewter contains lead and is not recommended for use by children.

LETTER OPENERS AND MAGNIFYING GLASSES are either gold-plated or silver-plated. Gold and Silver Plated Letter Openers measure approximately 7 inches from tip-to-tip - Magnifying Glasses measure 5.5 inches from tip-to-tip.

FOR ALL OUR BEADED PRODUCTS, Beads handles and other beaded areas are stacked on a metal rod and glued into place. While the same beads and colors may be used, unless specifically noted, Miriam creates each product in a unique design.

BEADS are composed of glass, acrylic, plastic, ceramic, metal, soapstone, pewter, sterling silver, gemstones and other natural and manufactured materials. Glass and fine crystal beads may be handmade or machine-pressed-transparent, translucent or opaque. They have a variety of finishes, including fiber-optic cat's eye, iridescent, metallic or dichroic. Some are fire-polished or matte, single-colored, two-toned or hand painted by artists from all over the world. Beads come in all shapes, sizes and colors. Some are swirling combinations of colors, while others are multi-dimensional. There are smooth and "bumpy" beads, textured and faceted beads. Some are foil-lined or have "glitter" finishes. Miriam combines the variety of sizes, shapes and colors for each product to create truly unique and amazing designs!

While the same beads and colors may be used, unless specifically noted, Miriam designs each Moonbeams product as a one-of-a-kind work of art. Materials, bead patterns and shapes may vary slightly from web site photos. We do our best to accurately photograph and describe each item.
