If the answer is yes, bring your broken jewelry to Argenta Bead Company and have it repaired so you can begin wearing your pretty jewels again.
We have been successfully repairing beaded jewelry for 14 years and have seen a wide variety of pieces from the most basic bead restringing to the most intricate and unique jewelry reconstruction. We have many happy clients who can now wear jewelry they once thought was lost to them.
Argenta Bead Company is pleased to accept most bead stringing, wire work, pearl knotting and other jewelry repairs that involve beads. Beadchicks do not offer repairs that require soldering, but sometimes we can use our crafty minds to find different ways to fix and repair your jewelry. If not, we have access to a reputable jeweler who does solder.
Please allow up to 10 days for your jewelry repair to be completed (sometimes longer during peak seasons). If you require your jewelry within one day a rush fee of $10.00 will be included. This moves you to the top of our priority list! (sometimes up to 36 hours to be completed during peak seasons.)
By definition a repair is the exact reconstruction of an existing, broken or worn-out piece of jewelry. We accept weaving repairs on a case by case basis. Argenta Bead cannot be responsible for beads that are decaying or falling apart from age or wear. In some cases, when deconstructing pieces, we encounter beads which we are not able preserve. We will recommend another comparable material (or bead) and will reconstruct the piece as close to its original form as we are possibly able. We reserve the right not to accept any repair that we do not feel we can complete satisfactorily.
Due to the wide variety of beads and materials we will need to see your jewelry before we can give you a price quote.
Prices will be confirmed after assessing required repairs. Often, on the spot repairs cost only the price of your replacement parts!
Some simple repairs are done the same day while others take a week or two to finish.
We are confident you will be pleased with our quality repair service. All work is warranted against defect of materials and/or workmanship for seven (7) days after pickup, with your original itemized receipt. Please be certain to inspect your repair immediately upon pickup.
Due to insurance regulations, we are unable to perform repairs on any item with a stated value more than $250.00 or amber jewelry under any circumstances.
We may offer a discount on multiple repairs, depending on the amount of work you need done.
Extra fees may be included if there is design work created by a Beadchick.
Should you wish not to repair your jewelry, it is possible to use the components in a complete redesign. We are happy to let you know what's possible! Custom design fees are based upon the work performed. A Beadchick will be happy give you estimated time & materials in a written quote.
