Just Nan embellishments (beads, charms, etc) for the past
several years have been carefully packaged and included with the specific
design for which they are intended. Extra embellishments packs are not available or
sold separately. The contents of our embellishment packs are proprietary and under
no circumstances released to outside sources. Most are imported, we go out of our
way to provide special and interesting touches to our designs to make them unique
to both you and us.
For earlier designs where the leaflet and embellishment pack
were once separate purchases, Just Nan embellishment packs are no longer available
separately from our leaflets. We are very low on supplies for many items and are
forced to coordinate what remains with the leaflets we have available.
This policy results from one or more the following
- Manufacturer discontinued or significantly altered
- Manufacturer out of business - major reason!
- Minumum purchase requirements too high - especially true
for items over 2 years old.
We regret having to take this position, but we
have no choice. Shops were advised of our circumstances in early 2008 and
alerted several times since then to check their stock.
Contact one of these shops in the US for
availability. They have said they have extra embellishment packs.

Digital & Internet Age Developments Affecting our Embellishments
More recently, Eastern European and Chinese web
sites encourage uploading of copyrighted needlework patterns and
designs and profit from reselling them. This practice violates all
international copyright agreements!
A Needlework Patrol Organization located in Europe, of which we are a member,
monitors this activity everyday. It is costly and time consuming. We
have had good success working with Eastern European craft and social websites;
however, the Chinese sites continue to ignore our requests to respect our
copyrights and continue to promote the illegal resale of all designers'
copyrighted designs. Furthermore, dishonest individuals on sites such as eBay
and etsy continue to scan patterns and attempt to sell digital copies of
copyrighted designs. These infringements cannot be supported by a willingness
to provide embellishments and other items necessary to complete a design.
Given these unfortunate consequences of today's connected world, we find that
limiting our embellishments to only those products we physically kit
and distribute provides our only insurance and protection against this
blatant shameful behavior.
