About

Waen® as a Birthday Gift

We're the husband-wife duo behind Waen®, makers with backgrounds in Architecture & Psychology. We craft geometric stuff using the Tiffany stained glass technique and we are the first makers of bright copper stained glass objects.

Even in the years before we met, we have always believed in the power of creating something new and unique from scraps, instead of buying what the market offers us. After being introduced by a mutual friend, we fell in love, moved in together, and started dreaming of a less corporate and creative life that will also help us to turn our skills and interests into a lifestyle. Asli is a green thumb architect with a passion for geometry, and she thought of the idea for stained glass geometric terrariums back when I was working on my master’s thesis in neuroscience. I made her one as a birthday gift and she loved it, so Waen is born as a part of a growing movement towards owning things whose origins extended beyond an assembly line.

In time, we found out that our products also carry the rustic elegance of special wedding items, thus we specialized in making your precious moments more beautiful than it could be. Now, our product range is expanded from terrariums to lighting elements and we still look forward to finding the new ways of bringing glass into your lives! To us, knowing our materials and the chemistry behind the process is the key to a perfect product. After endless experiments and months of hard work, we managed to create a trademark in the market with our rose goldish copper finish and yet we still push our limits by experimenting with different equipment and techniques.

Today, we are honored to be able to share our craft with you as one of the featured shops of Etsy and look forward to continuing bringing you beautiful, dramatic, resourceful pieces. We hope you find something you love!

Frequently asked questions

Once you've added an item to your shopping cart, navigate to your cart by clicking the cart link at the top right of any page. Once you are ready to place an order, proceed to checkout, and then you can submit your order by clicking "Submit order" button.

Following your order placement, you will receive an email from Shopier. You can easily proceed payment via "Pay Now" button in this email. Once the order is paid, we will mark your order as paid manually.

Feel free to contact us if you require any further information. We are here to help you!

Is it possible to speed up the shipping?

YES! You can have your order within 1-3 business days upon dispatch date if you go with DHL Express.

Once you've added an item to your shopping cart, navigate to your cart by clicking the cart link at the top right of any page. You can then select DHL Express Worldwide option from the shipping options dropdown menu located to the right of your item. You'll able to track your parcel on www.dhl.com with the tracking number that will be given to you on your shipping notification e-mail.

If you decide to go with expedited shipping, please write your phone number in your order note or just send us a message. It is required for a better shipping experience.

Custom and personalized orders

We create custom orders on special requests. Describe to us what you need - with clear dimensions if possible - and we'll happily handle the rest.

Most items can be made in a larger size depending on the form. However, even they're doable, we don't prefer shipping that large items internationally as large items are more prone to damage during transit. If you're after a really large piece (like 35-40 cm high or more) we recommend having made it for you locally. Or if you need something slightly larger than the original one, then you are welcome.

Please note that custom orders do not qualify as part of a running sale or free shipping offer on our shop.

Care instructions

Our products are basically made of glass, solder and finishing chemicals and as of all stained glass items, they have a unique handmade touch due to the nature of the production. Wash them gently, dry the glass with microfiber swab, do not use chemicals on them. And then, wax it with a furniture or car wax for more shiny and new look.

The patina acid may react with air on different humidity levels and due to this, stained glass items require a special care to maintain the shiny and new look. The color of the item may change in time, as the air and the humidity will cause an oxidation layer on the surface as it happens with the wood, leather and all other natural materials. Regular waxing will help you to keep your item new & shiny

Are your products waterproof?

Short answer: No. Our products are not waterproof just because of the nature of stained glass items – as a very little amount of water may leak under the copper foil if you fill the item with water only. Cementing is required to provide this feature and this process can only be applied on flat surfaces, not three-dimensional objects.

However, this won't be a problem if you will be using your item as a planter as the soil will absorb a significant amount of water. Remember, terrariums do not like much water.

We do not recommend using our vase collection with live flowers that need water. If you'd like to use them with live flowers, you may place a separate watering container inside the vase.

What happens if my order arrives in damaged condition?

Our current damage rate is 0,18%. This means that the chance of receiving your item in perfect condition is 99,82%

However, if you were hit by bad luck, all you need to do is to contact us within 24 hours with a photo of the damage incurred to your item. Once you provide a proof that the item is damaged, we’ll offer you a replacement of the product you purchased and supply you a brand new item free of charge as soon as possible.

Please note that any request made later than 24 hours & without a proof won’t be considered as an eligible request. Glass is fragile in its nature - for this reason, all damage that occurs after the product is received is considered to be at the fault of the recipient.

I need my order really soon. Can you rush it?

If you need your order sooner or by a specific date such as holidays, birthdays, weddings or events, you might want to rush your order with the listing given below:

RUSH MY ORDER: https://www.etsy.com/listing/236329007

Please keep in mind that we are a small business with a small team. We work very hard and do our best to get everyone's orders out as soon as possible, but we are not a factory, and we may not able to ship your order next day after purchase – unless the item is stocked – even if you take rush my order upgrade. We know it's hard to wait for something you're excited for, but this is part of the beauty of handmade, there are literally individual human beings crafting your item just for you!

Gift wrapping and packaging

We make sure that each and every object is securely double-packaged, so it gets to you in one piece. We use lots of bubble wrap and styrofoam to immobilize the object in its original packaging and place these packages into strong cardboard boxes to prevent possible damage during transit. Multiple purchases may ship separately depending on the size & form of the items.

Want to buy something to send directly to a friend in another city or country? We are happy to make your loved ones happy! Just make sure to mark your order as a gift in your cart and then add a gift message and gift wrapping if you like. Don't forget to put your friend's address info as the "Ship To" address and we'll handle the rest for you.
