I take the greatest care in producing your items and inspect each item before shipping. I aim to provide the highest quality items possible. Please bear in mind that all In My Element Glass Design products are hand crafted. As such, they may include minor variations and imperfections. These are what gives hand crafted items their unique quality and individual personality. Fused glass is scored and layered by hand and fired in a kiln to very high temperatures with different firing schedules producing different effects. Each of our kilns fire differently so shades and contours may vary slightly from one firing to the next. All pieces are described and photographed carefully. I take care to photograph and describe my items accurately. Be aware, however, that all computers/devices will display colours differently so the colour of the product you receive may be slightly different from the photographs online. Photos of glass often don’t do justice to the colours and tactile nature of fused glass, particularly with the dichroic* and iridised** glass. Contact me if you have any questions.
*Dichroic glass (as described on Wikipedia – and in modern terms) is glass which displays two different colors by undergoing a color change in certain lighting conditions. One dichroic material is a modern composite non-translucent glass that is produced by stacking layers of glass and micro-layers of metals or oxides which give the glass shifting colors depending on the angle of view, causing an array of colors to be displayed as an example of thin-film optics.
**Iridised glass (as described by Carnival Glass Worldwide) – sometimes spelled “iridized” is a rainbow-like effect on the surface, a bit like soap bubbles or the effect of oil-on-water that you sometimes see in puddles. You can see the same sort of effect on the surface of a CD too. The feathers of some birds and the wings of some butterflies also have a shimmering iridescence.
If you feel an item is faulty please advise me within 14 days of receipt with photos of the issue. If I deem there is a problem, I will either replace the item or provide a full refund upon return of the item. Return postage fees are your responsibility. All returned items must be in original condition, unused, unwashed and with original packaging.
I’m a sorry that there can be no refund or exchange on custom orders. If there is a problem with your order, please let me know and I will do my best to rectify the problem.
In My Element Glass Design will not disclose your details to any third party. All transactions are handled securely via PayPal. We do not store your credit card information.
Fused glass items require special care…they can be hand-washed in warm water with a mild detergent. They are neither microwave nor oven safe. Please do not place in the dishwasher. Use a clean cloth free of any food or dirt to prevent scratches during the washing. Also do a thorough drying of the glass after washing to avoid hard water spots on the glass. The fewer chemicals used in a cleaning agent, the better for your glass.
Please follow these instructions to ensure the durability of your glass goods. In My Element Glass Design cannot refund or replace items which are damaged or worn due to incorrect care.
I want to provide you with the best service possible so if you have any questions pre or post purchase, please get in touch.
