    About a1debsglass

    Sales 13
    On Etsy since 2008

    I was a Portrait Photographer, while traveling met a couple from the country that I learned from in the 1980s.

    In January of 2009, I sold my first stained glass piece as a etsy seller. The year of 2006 was a huge year for me. I quit my day job and decided to open a stained glass studio in the small town I lived in. My son, started University of Alabama, fresh out of the US Navy, that same year. I supported myself, could not afford rent on 2 places, so I closed the studio, reluctantly. Actually, I delivered a mail route for the next year.

    I decided to sell my glass panels on line, and looked into EBay. I did not want to take a chance of the highest bid on my work, so I opened my etsy shop. I now have 3 etsy shops: a1debsglass, hisocietyjewelry, and picketfencevintage. I have been inactive for about the last 2 years (my son passed away October, 2011). Now I am ready to work again, as I am retired and planned traveling to art shows to sub my income.

      Self-taught (mostly) stained glass artist since the 1980s. I love how light changes colors into different shades at certain times of the day. Makes the panels seem more a part of nature in movement.

    Welcome to my shop!! I hope your visit will be pleasingly colorful, literally. Stained glass is all about color and light.

    Please feel free to contact me about custom work; your design and colors, or mine. Most of my stained glass is done in the Tiffany style (each piece of glass is cut, grinded to smooth the edges, taped with copper foil, and soldered together). I use a zinc border for extra stability.

    Each panel is washed and polished with a carnauba cleaner wax. The panel is then buffed, making a beautiful finished product that will last a lifetime.

    The shipping costs are not refundable.
    Payment
    Pay Pal is my preferred choice of payment. However, I also accept credit card (through Paypal), money order or cashier's check. Personal checks will be accepted, but item will not be shipped until check clears the bank.
    Shipping
    Items will be shipped via U S Postal Service within 1-3 days of receipt of payment, unless your order is for a commission piece. I use Delivery Confirmation from the Post Office, and will email the Confirmation number when the item is mailed.

    Shipping to UK will be via First Class International. Buyer will be liable for all customs or other fees.


    Insurance is advised on large items. Insurance is for the buyer's protection, and all claims will go through the buyer. Please convo me, upon checkout, if you want insurance. I will send a revised bill including the cost of the insurance.

    Please advise of any address changes before shipping. Otherwise, I will use the address provided through paypal.

    Each order will be carefully wrapped in bubble wrap and/or filled with styrofoam peanuts. I want you to receive your panel in perfect condition for your immediate enjoyment.

    I can make smaller items in quantity, with a discount for multiple items of like kind and size. I will offer a 10% discount and free gift to first time return customers; as I really do appreciate your business, and want you to be very happy with your purchases.

    I also welcome custom orders, with free shipping.

    Please convo me with any questions or problems before leaving feedback. Again, I appreciate your business.

    I prefer to use dishwashing liquid and a soft brush to clean my panels. Then a carnauba wax is applied and buffed to a nice shine.

    Please remember solder is not lead free unless stated. After all these years I have never had a problem with lead poisoning, but it is best if children (or anyone) be advised to always wash hands good after handling.

    If you ever have a breakage and need repair to your panel, I will be happy to do so for a reasonable charge.
