About

Our Odyssey Together

Thank you for stopping by! We are excited to be opening our own website in late 2016 combining Barb's jewelry with the bridal silks and Victorian items Barb makes, as well as Dave's stained glass, in our Odyssey Creations site. You can find us either through www.BZOriginals.com or www.OdysseyCreations.NET, both will lead to the same location! Our new shop will have a focus on bridal while carrying full inventory of everything currently on both Etsy sites plus some.

We started our journey together as newlyweds in 2003, with Barb making Victorian Ornaments to be with Dave while he made stained glass. They were a hit and we changed the name from Odyssey Stained Glass to Odyssey Creations, LLC. Together it has become a growing passion of creativity and a journey of growing our business together with the goal in mind that this business would be our retirement business. We started this shop with Etsy in 2008 and about a year later branched into our other shops: www.BZOriginals.Etsy.com for Barb's jewelry line, and www.Odyssey Cache.Etsy.com for supplies that we also use to create things, and in 2016 created www.OdysseyCache.com as an independent site.

We both retired from our full time jobs in 2013/2014. The result of building our supplies line over the years has resulted in a wonderful, extensive pallet of jewelry beads, stained glass, silk flowers, beautiful beaded fringes and trims, ribbons and ornaments of every color you can imagine. We are working in an artists delight and it just continues to grow as do our creative processes now that we are so much more focused on our websites and our creations.

We both love making the world a more beautiful place one creation at a time. The continuing flow of gratitude and praises from our faithful as well as new customers is what will keep us going for a long time. Thank you so much for all YOU do! We love you all!

Blessings,
Barb & Dave Zinkhan

See also International Shipping if applicable.

SHIPPING REFUNDS

Most 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.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING

Postal rates are controlled by the United States Post Office, not us. You can go to www.USPS.com to obtain an estimated cost for international shipping.

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. Most items are shipped based on the weight of the item to your location plus packaging and minor handling costs.

Buyers are responsible for any customs charges. Be sure you know what your country's threshold is prior to ordering.

INTERNATIONAL TRACKING

All international shipments are issued a customs number by the US Post Office which will be in your online 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.
