Was a really pretty piece. Only issue I had was one of the wings were loose.

Beautifully made. It is perfect for showcasing a special ornament.
Our Odyssey Together
Thank you for stopping by! 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 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. We welcome you either location.
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!

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders
Custom orders are generally except from November 15 through January 15. Please allow 1 week for every stained glass angel ordered and 2 weeks for hearts. Bridal orders can be 1 week on simple requests or 3 months or more on packages. I will consider suggestions on Victorian ornaments.
Please contact us through the link that sparked your interest outlining (1) time frame needed (2) desired item and color, and attach photos if possible of coordinating items, We require 50% down via a custom listing that will be created, which is nonrefundable once materials are ordered or work has begun. The balance plus shipping is due upon completion. We are happy to work with you on materials and colors through photograph exchanges.
SHIPPING - Additional Information
Most orders are processed to ship within 1 to 2 days. Shipping is calculated based on size and weight to your zip code. Made to Order items normally ship within 2 weeks or as determined in your down payment listing. We cannot guarantee normal USPS delivery times stated in shipping times during the holidays.
Shipping costs and 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 on Etsy as we print labels from that exact address. We are not responsible if you input your address incorrectly.
See also International Shipping if applicable.
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.
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.
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.
