Glass Paperweights and Pendants ~ Custom Work Welcome

Illinois, United States 1822 Sales On Etsy since 2009

5 out of 5 stars
(615)

Announcement   My paperweights and pendants feature artwork from my collection of books, cards, papers, and calendars. The border of each paperweight is hand-painted in transparent, opaque, or metallic colors to frame the design, and the bottom finished in a matching felt color.

The American-made glass and French crystal is of the highest quality, however, handcrafted glass shares characteristics indicative of handcrafted glassware. These include small imperfections that should not be considered flaws or irregularities. Faint swirling may result when glass is gathered from the furnace. Small bubbles are caused when glass is hand-dropped into the mold and are present in most paperweights, especially rectangle shapes.

I also make a line of glass pendants in many shapes and sizes. Pendants often come with a choice of bail finish, and style and finish of chain. Custom work is welcome and offered in the Custom Paperweight Section: https://www.etsy.com/shop/BixlerandJohnson?section_id=5970163&ref=shopsection_leftnav_3 and the
Pendant Section:

Beautiful Images Framed Within Custom Glass Paperweights, Pendants and Cuff Links

Bixler & Johnson. Hm-m-mm, sounds like a law firm...which name am I? Both actually, married and maiden names to be exact. I had a gift store under this name for 10 years and now, as a stay-at-home mom, I am continuing the tradition with my Etsy shop.

Art, and all things creative, have been in my blood for as long as I can remember. My fine arts degree took me into the world of graphic design from which I entered retail with my gift store, Bixler & Johnson. It was wonderful selling everything; from gifts, decorative accessories and furniture, to jewelry, handmade papers, and rubber stamps.

As a lifelong collector of books, cards, calendars, and papers I have always had a fondness for finding ways to display images. Although my main focus has been paperweights, I also started making glass pendants and cuff links. What better way to showcase beautiful images?

Shop policies

Last updated on July 25, 2016
Welcome to Bixler & Johnson's shop policies. The following information details payment, shipping, refund and return policies, as well as, tax and custom order requests.

Please contact me with any questions or requests through an Etsy conversation or at my email address: BixlerandJohnson [!at] gmail.com

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
Bixler & Johnson gladly accepts credit cards and PayPal through Etsy's Direct Checkout, but does not accept checks or money orders. The Etsy gift card is welcome and used with Direct Checkout. Payment is due AT TIME OF ORDER.

If an item is a GIFT please let me know in the "Message to Seller" box so I may include a gift receipt WITHOUT price information. I am happy to include a personalized gift tag upon request. Indicate the gift recipient's address if it is different from the address listed on your account.
Shipping
DOMESTIC CUSTOMERS: I ship via USPS First Class Mail or insured Priority Mail which include delivery confirmation (except $1.25 shipping). Shipping is combined on multiple purchases to achieve the best price and this discount is shown when checking out. (Any shipping overcharge as a result of shipping multiple items or a close destination will be refunded.) Please keep in mind that the cost of shipping includes postage AND the cost of packaging materials.

INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS: I usually ship by insured First Class International Mail which is trackable in many, but not all, countries and typically takes 10-15 business days, but could take several weeks. I do contact you with a Customs Tracking Number which can be helpful in locating a package in the destination country's Customs.

Your order may be subject to customs fees, import duties or VAT taxes. All such charges are the responsibility of the package recipient and may vary from country to country. VAT is NOT included in the price and you may be charged for it upon receipt along with collection fees. Check your country's regulations.

I am required to put the full value of the item on the customs form and cannot ship as a "gift" or lower value item. It is recommended that you check your country’s postal rules BEFORE placing an order. If your package is refused or not deliverable the original shipping cost is NON-Refundable. Item refund will be given upon receipt of returned item.

INSURANCE: Insurance is included on ALL Domestic First Class Mail and Priority Mail paperweights and ALL International orders. Expedited shipping upgrades are available at checkout. The "With Another Item Price" is not truly accurate without the zip code and final weight of the package. Please ask for a quote on shipping upgrades before purchasing if you would like an accurate price. Every effort is made to securely package your purchase to guard against breakage.

An email will be sent confirming the shipment of your order and providing a link to track your package.

Rarely a package will show as delivered on tracking when it hasn't been. Sometimes it will show up in your mailbox within a day or two. If it remains missing within a few days, please check with other family members, neighbors and your postal carrier to see if someone took in the package and forgot to tell you, or if the carrier remembers where they left it. If it is still missing, contact me. Together we will try to find out where it is. We will file a report with USPS for lost or stolen mail and you may be asked to file a police report if it was deemed stolen.
Refunds and Exchanges
If, for any reason*, you are not completely satisfied with your purchase I will gladly accept a return for exchange or refund, less shipping charge. Item must be in new, unused condition and in original packaging. Customer is responsible for return shipping. Please send a notification email, prior to return, within 7 days of receiving your order.

*Custom Made and Discounted/Sale items are NOT returnable.
Additional policies and FAQs
All my paperweights and jewelry are made in a pet-free and smoke-free environment. To reduce fading of paperweight artwork please do not display in direct sunlight.

Tax - Please note that orders shipping to an Illinois address will incur 10% sales tax upon Etsy checkout.

Custom Orders - Requests for custom work are welcome. Custom work requires many convos/emails, with photo attachments, for customer selection and approval. There are listings just for custom work available in the Custom Paperweight and Pendant Sections. Custom orders can NOT be canceled once they have commenced or are completed and, therefore, not returnable.
