Glass With A Past ...... What Goes Around Comes Around

0 Sales On Etsy since 2012

Announcement   It's All About Recycling:

Dangling Discards are lovingly created from old glass and pottery shards that have been aged to perfection as they tumbled down rock and sand laden arroyos or persevered in the desert sun in one of many old southwest New Mexico dump sites.
I comb these areas to collect what I consider gems with a few lumps and bumps, waiting to be loved, honed and appreciated. Every piece is unique and one of a kind. I describe my work as seldom symmetrical, a tad dysfunctional, very original and infinitely Eco-Logical. I also include a space for kids so they can see how easy it is to make something out of what other people have thrown away.
If you are a baby boomer such as I, you might relate to the above. We have a few lumps and bumps but have been down the long road and deserve the "aged to perfection" label. We are dangling a bit but always ready to let the sun shine in!!!!

Welcome to Adrienne's Corner. My favorite saying is "What Goes Around Comes Around" because it can be applied to so many things in life. When it comes to Glass With a Past, all of my creations incorporate discarded items, most notably glass. Since no two pieces of glass will ever be exactly alike, my work will always be original and one of a kind. I hope to share my love of nature and commitment to recycling with anyone who enters my little corner of the world. I always attempt to provide clear and accurate photos and descriptions so you know every detail of what you are viewing.

I admit, I feel more confident behind a soldering iron than a camera. Attractive, accurate, photos are not an easy feat. If you have any questions about any of my offerings, please feel free to email me.

Accepted payment methods

Payment
It's important to be safe. At this time, I use PayPal only. My understanding is that Etsy will soon be adding a quick payment plan of their own. Until that is up and running, I hope you will be fine with using PayPal. Once an item is ordered, Items will be shipped within two to three days after payment has been received.
Shipping
I ship USPS priority mail due to the ever increasing shipping costs of UPS and FED EX. We can all appreciate how paying shipping costs can take the fun out of ordering online. Whenever possible I use the "If it fits it ships" boxes and envelopes and pass that savings along to you. USPS mail in and out of New Mexico seems slower than other places and Silver City is a small town off the track of any freeway. I thought I saw a couple of mules behind the post office a while back. Please allow a day or two extra from the stated priority mail promise. Thanks
Refunds and Exchanges
Since most of my work is fragile, I will do everything in my power to package it so that it won't be damaged. If you receive an item intact but it simply isn't what you expected, please email me and let's discuss the options. I can refund your purchase price to your PayPal account but require that you pay the cost of shipping the item back to me. If it's damaged, the postal service will need to be involved.
Additional policies and FAQs
Please pay careful attention to the measurements listed. Some items are shown with a ruler along side. That presentation might not win any awards for beauty but it's purpose is to be sure that you, as the customer, has a reference point as to the size of the item. If you wish an alteration to an item, let me know. Some pendants' chain length can be altered. I handle that on a case by case basis. Custom orders are welcomed if we can work something out.
