About

Continuing to Grow!

We are proud to announce we now have our own independent website at an independent website at WWW.ODYSSEYCACHE.COM. Odyssey Cache was originally born from www.etsy.com/shop/OdysseyCreations, which was originally Odyssey Stained Glass made by my husband Dave. I (Barb) started making Victorian Ornaments and silk flower wreaths and arrangements as a means to spend time together. Years later, it has evolved into 3 Etsy shops and now our independent website. We are both now retired and devote our time to family and our home business and proud to continue offering more shopping venues to buyers.

Working with a huge collected pallet of silk flowers for all seasons and ornaments of all colors, there has been a need to create beaded fringe in all sorts of colors. Most of it is customs designed and made for our shop exclusively. We now list over 200 styles and growing. If you don't find something to suit your needs, please contact me and discuss the possibility of having something made just for you! Be aware that turnaround time can be up to 6 months.

When I started selling finished jewelry, www.etsy.com/shop/BZOriginals was born and eventually a new line of beads and findings was also born to Odyssey Cache. My current interests in seed bead work with future interest in shibori ribbon embroidered jewelry, has led to recent new lines of seed beads and 2 hole beads.

While Odyssey Cache is a large percentage of our sales, we both still find time to create so check out our other shops!

Etsy and our own website have become a huge factor in our life and we absolutely love it - meeting and working with people and being in such a wonderful creative environment. YOU are the reason we are here and we so appreciate all of our customers!

CUSTOM AND PERSONALIZED ORDERS

We welcome custom orders for specific quantities of beads or yardage on trims and fringe. Large quantities may need to be ordered in, and as such, we will request a 50% deposit with the balance plus shipping due when it comes in.

While I do design most of our beaded fringe, I do not make it. My minimum quantities that I have to order are anywhere from 20 to 100 yards, so if you want certain colors or contact me with what you want and I will take it into consideration as I will have to sell whatever yardage you don't purchase. Note there is a 3-6 month processing time.

We do not design custom trim, beads or brooches, other than the beaded fringe. Everything in this shop is sold as a supply only and not as handmade.

CARE INSTRUCTIONS

Care instructions are included in the Item Descriptions on some of the trims. It is not recommended that anything made with beaded fringe be handled any other way than hand washed, if that. We do seal the threads prior to cutting the fringe on the back side of the ribbon with a light coat of clear nail polish. If you are using on clothing, it is recommended that you do the same at the top of each strand or glue the fringe so the threads on the back are sealed to prevent unraveling.

ADDITIONAL SHIPPING TIPS

GENERAL

Most orders are processed to ship within 1 to 2 days. We cannot guarantee normal USPS delivery times stated in our upgrades during the holidays.

Shipping upgrades are available from your cart upon checkout. How fast it gets to you depends on what shipping choice you choose.

Please check your SHIP TO ADDRESS as we print labels from that exact address. We are not responsible if you input your address incorrectly.

See also International Shipping if applicable.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING

We normally ship First Class Mail which is the most economical and will normally get there in 10-14 days but may be up to 4 to 6 weeks during the holidays.

Postal rates are controlled by the United States Post Office, not us. You can go to www.USPS.com to obtain estimates.

International shipping is currently in tiers in the following weight ranges: 1 oz to 8 oz; 9 oz to 2 pounds, and every pound thereafter adjusts to a higher price level. The jumps are anywhere from $5 to $13 per level and it levels out to a $5 increase per pound after about 6 pounds.

TRACKING: All international shipments are issued a customs number by the US Post Office which will be in your receipt. This number provides tracking until it leaves in the USA,

SHIPPING REFUNDS

All items in this shop are calculated by weight to your location for shipping costs and automatically combines. However, we will refund any overage of the actual shipping and packaging costs plus reasonable handling. Your refund normally comes the same day your order ships by however you paid for your order.

DELIVERY ISSUES AND INSURANCE

Once the package shows it was delivered on the tracking and if you did not receive it, please contact your local post office IMMEDIATELY after contacting your neighbors to make sure they didn't get it. There is nothing either Etsy or we can do once it is delivered. You can also call USPS at 1-800-275-8777E with tracking information for redelivery or delivery issues.

We do purchase insurance on all packages over $10. You MUST notify us within 60 DAYS of of ship date to file a claim for a missing package. We cannot file a claim until 45 days from the ship date. You will be required to electronically sign an Affidavit stating the package was not delivered. You will be refunded when we are paid on the claim.

GLASS VS. ACRYLIC BEADED FRINGE

Most of the beaded fringe in my shop is made with glass seed beads and quality acrylic teardrops and larger beads. Acrylic is a very hardened plastic and many people think it is glass. It is much lighter than glass. I do have some all glass seed and bugle bead beaded fringe at http://etsy.me/1kVELOn.

INTERNATIONAL TRACKING

All international shipments are issued a customs number by the US Post Office which will be in your receipt. This number provides tracking until it leaves in the USA, and then afterwards only if your country scans it in, which they are not required to do, yet many do. The only way to get 100% tracking is to (1) order over 4 pounds worth of product and have it shipped priority, or (2) ship international express.

RETURN POLICY

If you are not satisfied with your purchase, you must contact us within 5 days and return it within 14 days from delivery. Refunds are provided upon receipt of the returned product. Item must be in the same condition it was upon receipt or the value of the return can be adjusted accordingly. There may be a 15% restocking charge on by the yard materials. Remnant items, sale items and personalized items cannot be returned.

All shipping, BOTH WAYS, and insurance costs are the responsibility of the buyer and cannot be reimbursed unless we sent you the wrong item by mistake.

Mail the returned items to: Odyssey Cache, Barb & Dave Zinkhan, 2706 Stockbury Drive, Fort Collins, CO 80525.
