Welcome to glass shopping with confidence, your satisfaction is 100% guaranteed here at Thistle Glass!

As somebody who shops online often, I know that it can be complicated. There is simply no substitute for being able to touch and hold or try a piece of jewelry on. I want you to build a relationship with me at Thistle Glass, but internet shopping doesn’t always have a storybook ending. I get it, so Thistle Glass is pleased to offer a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee.
Take 30 days after receiving your glass to decide if it is really right. During these 30 days, you may return your glass for any reason. Simply send an email to get the process started.
The fine print:
The glass must be returned in the original condition. The buyer is responsible for shipping costs of returns. Item can be returned as an exchange or refund.  Exchanges and refunds will be processed when I receive your return package.

Returns & Exchanges
If you are not completely satisfied for any reason, you can return an item within 30 days of receipt for a full refund of the merchandise purchase price. Depending upon product availability, we can also exchange or replace it with another item of equal value. Even if you just don’t like it or it’s not what you expected, a refund will be issued for the purchase price, in the original form of payment. Original delivery and handling charges are non-refundable. Return shipping charges are the responsibility of the customer.

Follow these easy steps to return or exchange your item.

  • Take pictures if your glass or the package arrived damaged by the carrier.
  • Email Michelle@ThistleGlass.com
  • Box up your merchandise in the original packaging if you have it. The goods should be well-packed so that we receive them in good condition.
  • Send it back to us via USPS postage paid, to Thistle Glass, PO Box 483, Loon Lake, WA 99148

Please allow a minimum of 28 days for us to receive and process your return.

Glass Care & Use – The Basics

Thistle Glass does everything possible to assure a strong, high-quality product by properly annealing (cooling) all Lampwork, Fused and Blown Glass pieces. We cannot guarantee against breakage from misuse.

Do not place your glass in a dishwasher, microwave, or oven.
Do not expose art glass to extreme or sudden temperature changes as this may shock the glass and cause breakage.
Do not use metal utensils or abrasive cleaners on the glass as this can permanently scratch the surface. If abrasive cleansing is needed, I recommend 0000 steel wool combined with warm soapy water. It works magic and will not harm your glass.
Jewelry with Bails: I reinforce the glue bonding the bail to the glass using tested jewelers’ techniques and am very confident in the bonding power. However, I still do not recommend immersing in water, showering, bathing, or swimming with jewelry on.
My work is 100% guaranteed! If a bail ever comes off, I will happily repair it if you contact me first and mail it back to me.
Most importantly, please use your glass and enjoy it. If these basic guidelines are followed, you will have an heirloom to cherish for many generations to come.
