Five great types glass paperweights

You can use almost anything as a paperweight as long as it is fairly heavy, but some types of paperweights do a better job of expressing your personality than others. Glass paperweights allow you to keep your papers under control with a bit of flair. Whether your style is whimsical or elegant, you should be able to find something you like in these five great types of glass paperweights.

Whimsical glass paperweights

Glass animal paperweights If you are an animal lover, or plan to buy glass paperweights as gifts for other nature enthusiasts, you can express your passion for animals with the right paperweights. Animal lovers can express themselves using animal-shaped paperweights, such as cats or wolves.
Art glass paperweights Art glass paperweights, such as the popular Caithness Glass line of paperweights, as well as Deacons and McDougall's, include shapes and an array of swirling colours contained within clear glass. Caithness glass uses colours from the Scottish landscape in their art glass designs, but you can also find paperweights swirled with pastels and primary colours.

Elegant glass paperweights

Photo etched paperweights Personalised paperweights such as etched or glass photo frame weights are a special way to commemorate a loved one, an event, or a favourite hobby. The Spaceform company has a wide selection of these commemorative etched glass weights. Dress up your desk or table top with an etched glass paperweight. These can be personalised with an engraving of special importance to you. They also come pre-etched with popular nature images. Glass cubes If you are not a fan of art glass, animals, or nature scenes, geometric shapes might make a nice addition to your desk or table-top. Glass cubes and other geometric shapes, such as pyramids and spheres, make paperweights that fit in with almost any decor. Colour and design interests are added to these shaped weights by adding things such as beads, air bubbles, and other textured items inside of the glass. Bits of nature
Clear glass shapes filled with flowers or shells turn bits of nature into elegant keepsake paperweights. The beauty of encasing fragile natural items, such as flowers, in glass, is that the glass preserves the fragile item without damaging its beauty.
