We may revise these Terms at any time. Any such changes will take effect when posted on the Website and it is your responsibility to read the Terms on each occasion you use this Website and your continued use of the Website shall signify your acceptance to be bound by the latest Terms.

About The Company
The company is owned and operated by Jyoti Hawley, Derbyshire UK
All management of this site is carried out by the owner, including data protection management.
Ordering from us
You are deemed to place an order with us by ordering via our online checkout process. As part of our checkout process you will be given the opportunity to check your order and to correct any errors. We will send you an order acknowledgement via email, detailing the products you have ordered. Please note that this email is not an order confirmation or order acceptance from us
Your order is an offer to us to purchase the product specified in the order. Our acceptance of an order takes place when we dispatch the product. When we dispatch the product the purchase contract will be made even if your payment has not been processed immediately, unless we have notified you that we do not accept your order or you have cancelled your order.
We may refuse to accept an order:
where we cannot obtain authorisation for your payment; or
if there has been a pricing or product description error; or
if you do not meet any eligibility criteria set out in these Terms.
It is our responsibility to supply you with goods that meet your consumer rights.
To place an order for a commission piece, simply use the contact me form on this website to provide a description of what you would like me to make. At this point, I will enter into email communication with you to discuss your requirements. Once the commission design and price has been agreed by both parties the full price is payable before I begin work and is non-refundable.
The price of and time scale to complete a commission piece will vary depending on the time spent consulting and designing and also on the size, colours and complexity of the final design. During the process, I will keep communications regular and open to keep you up to date with the process and progress. Once a final design has been agreed by you, I will notify you of the final cost and completion time.
All fused glass pieces are designed and made by Jyoti Hawley but may include non-glass pre-made components such as picture frames, wooden stands and jewellery findings.
Descriptions and Photographs
Whilst I consider that my photographs accurately show the colours of the glass art displayed on my website, they cannot be guaranteed 100% accurate, as this will vary depending on your individual computer’s display settings. Please contact me if you have any questions.

Delivery charges are free within the United Kingdom. I am not delivering outside the UK at present but this is subject to change. We endeavour to dispatch goods within 5 working days via Royal Mail or other carriers. You will be notified on dispatch and a tracking number given. We accept no responsibility for delivery timescales once goods are dispatched. Dispatch times provided are an estimate, however, I will contact you if there is any unexpected delay in your item(s) being sent out. I take every care to ensure that your order arrives safely and in a timely manner. I will include a purchase receipt within the dispatch confirmation email.
Items are delivered to the shipping address you provide me with. Please ensure that the address details are correct as I cannot be held responsible for non-delivery of orders when incorrect address details have been provided by the customer.
I will not accept responsibility for loss or damage if you instruct the delivery company to leave your goods unattended.
Please check the items on delivery and notify me immediately if any of the goods are found to be missing or damaged so that I can resolve the issue to your satisfaction quickly.
Risk of loss and damage to goods passes to you on the date when the goods are delivered.
All of my smaller items of glass will be already gift wrapped in an organza bag inside a box with tissue paper packing. Larger items will be wrapped in biodegradable bubble wrap and packaged to minimise the risk of damage whilst in the post to you. The outer postage box will be packed with recycled or biodegradable bubble wrap and paper packing.
You can pay for your purchases online using PayPal, who accept most major credit or debit cards. You do not need to have a PayPal account to complete your payment.
We will take reasonable care to keep your order and payment details secure, but in the absence of negligence on our part we cannot be held liable for any loss you may suffer if a third party procures unauthorised access to any data you provide when accessing or ordering from this Website.
VAT and Import Duty
Crafty Glass Studio is not currently a VAT registered company and so no VAT will be added.
Import duties or taxes may be incurred by you if you are ordering for delivery to a country outside the UK. Crafty Glass Studio is not responsible for any import duties or tax which may be applicable in your country.
The price you pay is the price displayed on this Website at the time we receive your order, apart from if we discover an error in the price of products you have ordered, when we will inform you as soon as possible and give you the option of confirming your order at the correct price, or cancelling it. If you cancel and you have already paid for the products, you will receive a full refund. If we are unable to contact you we will treat the order as cancelled. While we try and ensure prices are accurate, our Website contains a large number of products and it is always possible that, despite our reasonable efforts, some of the products on our Website may be incorrectly priced.
All product prices are shown in £ sterling and include delivery charges unless expressly stated otherwise.
The ownership of any products you order shall pass to you on delivery of the products provided that we have processed and received payment in full for the products.
Cancellation and Returns policy
I aim for complete customer satisfaction but if you are unhappy with any aspect of my service or products, or change your mind, please read my terms below:
If You Change Your Mind
In accordance with Consumer Contract Regulations 2014 (CCR), you must contact me in writing within 14 working days of you receiving your order to request a refund if you change your mind. This can be by email or letter.
A refund will be carried out by me within 14 days of us receiving the item(s) back safely and undamaged. You will be responsible for the cost of returning the item(s) in this instance.
If A Product Is Faulty or Broken
As per the Consumer Rights Act 2015, if your product is faulty or broken, you can request a refund. You must contact me within a reasonable time scale.
I will need to assess the situation before agreeing a course of action. This may require you to send an accurate photo of the item(s) or return them to me.
In most cases, a full refund or exchange will be offered (depending on the time scale). This will be dealt with on a case by case basis. I will refund any return delivery costs.
If A Refund Is Agreed
You must return the goods to me within 14 days of notifying us. Failure to do so is a breach of your statutory duty and you may be charged recovery costs.
Returns must be securely packaged, preferably in the original packaging. It is your statutory duty to take reasonable care of the goods until they are received by me. I recommend returning the package by Royal Mail special delivery as any damages or loses incurred during the return may mean that I am unable to refund you.
A refund will be carried out by me within 14 days of us receiving the item(s) back safely. The refund will include my basic postage cost of getting the goods to you in the first place and any return delivery costs. If you opted for an enhanced postage service when ordering, this extra cost will not be refunded.
I can only refund money to the source originally used to pay, this being via PayPal.
For hygiene reasons, earrings cannot be returned/refunded unless faulty.
I regret that commission pieces (pieces made to order to a design agreed by the customer) cannot be returned/refunded unless faulty.
For any items judged to be damaged due to improper use or when reasonable care has not been taken by the customer, Crafty Glass Studio may claim against the customer for damages and breach of statutory duty. This does not affect the customer’s right to a full refund.
