About

Bending Glass

I love making these glass pendants. I'm trying to make something that is fun and has impact but that doesn't take itself too seriously. Colour matching gives me a bit of a thrill, as does coming up with a new way to work the glass. Glass is finicky and technical...there are a lot of rules. I don't like to follow a recipe as it is written, even if it is mine! So, although I've learned how to control the glass, my designs are often born of experiments and discovery.

I make a lot of pendants, but I view each one individually, the way I expect its new owner will. Quality is very important to me. I want my work to be affordable but I also want it to last. I like to save little stones, odd finds and mementos that remind me of friends, travels, and different periods of my life and I assume that others do too. I'd like to think that my pendants might end up as treasured keepsakes that evoke memories long after being worn as a necklace.

I take great care to make original well-crafted work that will last.
If you ever have any questions or concerns, please let me know so that I can address them and hopefully do better next time!

I am happy to make substitutions with neck cords and chains: lengths and types.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
  • Money Order
  • Check
  • Other Method
Payment
I accept credit cards through Paypal and Direct Payment, as well as personal cheques / checks, 'International' or Canadian money orders, Canadian Interac email transfers and Etsy Gift Cards.

The Canadian shipping rates are reduced to make Canadian purchase pricing as close to US purchasing as possible. Alternatively, for items shipped within Canada, I can provide a Paypal invoice in Canadian dollars (at par) plus a $2 shipping charge for regular mail. HST/GST is applicable for Canadian purchases with either method.
Shipping
Orders are almost always shipped within one business day.

The flat rate shipping quoted is for Regular Air Mail Post which is stated by Canada Post to take 4-7 business days within the US and 2-5 days within most of Canada. For International times, please contact me with your location.

Rush shipping is available but pricing (outside of Canada) can be more than the cost of most of my items. Please contact me directly with your zip code or postal code for rates.

Most orders are sent in a flat cardboard mailer, to keep shipping costs so low.
Refunds and Exchanges
Refunds, cancellations or exchanges are not a problem. I want you to be happy with your purchase. Please just contact me before sending anything back.

My work is guaranteed for one year from purchase. However, please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any concerns about your purchase after that time and I will do my best to work it out.
Additional policies and FAQs
My glass pendants and earrings are also available in wholesale and consignment assortments for retailers. Please contact me for more information!

Thank you!
