The Glass Goddess cannot accept any responsibility for ashes lost in the post being sent to us, our freepost address provides a standard first class postal service and is not tracked in any way. The safest way to get your ashes to us is Recorded or Special Delivery. Any ashes sent by the customer that are subject to an underpaid postage fee from Royal Mail will be invoiced for the total amount of underpaid postage plus a £0.50 admin fee.
You have the right to cancel the purchase of a good without having to give a reason at any time within the "cooling off period" of seven working days, beginning on the day after you receive the goods.
If you are in possession of the goods you are under the duty to retain them and take reasonable care of them. You must send the goods back to us to our contact address at your own cost (unless we delivered the item to you in error or the item is damaged or defective) as soon as possible once you have canceled the contract.
We reserve the right to make a charge not exceeding our direct costs of recovering the goods if you do not return the goods or return them at our expense.
Once you have notified us that you wish to cancel the contract, any sum debited to us will be refunded to you as soon as possible and in any event within 30 days of your cancelation.
You will not have any right to cancel a purchase for the supply of any of the following goods:
for the supply of goods the price of which is dependent on fluctuations in the financial market which cannot be controlled by the retailer;
for the supply of good made to your specifications or clearly personalised or which by reason of their nature cannot be returned or are liable to deteriorate or expire rapidly. For example ashes to jewellery.
In the unlikely event of jewellery being faulty I will either repair or replace it. However I will not be held responsible, replace or repair jewellery damaged through misuse. 'Misuse' includes but is not limited to the following:
Breakages due to dropping
Excessive water exposure
Excessive heat exposure
Visual Differences In Beads
Just as the person or pet that the ashes come from was wonderful and unique, so too are each of the beads I make. Although every effort is made to ensure your beads look like those in the pictures on this website no two beads will ever be quite the same. When adding an organic substance (the ash) to the molten glass certain reactions may occur that could make your bead look different to the pictured beads.
Bubbles - Bubbles may or may not appear in your beads, this is a result of CO2 escaping from the ash when it is heated. Not all ashes produce CO2 so not all beads will have them, others seem to produce lots and lots of bubbles.
Colour variation - The colour of a bead can look different for many reasons. Firstly the colour settings on computer monitors can be set differently. The reflective nature of glass mean that the beads will reflect different light (natural, fluorescent ect.) in different ways both in the pictured beads and your own beads. The glass will also reflect the colours of things around it. Finally the inclusion of the ash itself can impact on the final colour of your bead, some beads may appear darker, lighter or even (in the case of lighter coloured beads usually) have a grey hue to them.
Colour Gaps - A band of coloured glass is laid down first to form the base of the bead, whilst this glass is still molten (a consistency similar to that of treacle) it is rolled in the ash, this can cause the glass to 'spread'. When the top coat of clear glass is added to encapsulate the ash any areas of the bead that have not spread as far will appear as a narrowing in the colour. This is perfectly normal and doesn't affect the quality or strength of the bead.
By placing your order you are understating and agreeing to the possible variations and accept that your beads will be as beautifully unique as the person or pet you wish to remember.
