Nice, but not exactly what I expected.
I bought this glass paperweight for my Grandma's collection. She has many of these from all over the world with different designs but none from Vera Bradley, so I thought it would be unique, unlike any of the ones she already owned. I had the impression that it was just like the other glass paperweights in her collection where the design is inside the glass, but it is actually just a piece of patterned paper on the bottom of a glass ball that gets magnified when you look down on it from above; if you look at it from the side, you see only glass and no pattern. The bottom has a velour-like none-slip material which is nice so it won't scratch any surface. It comes in a pretty paper box which my Grandma has been using to store little trinkets in on her night stand. Even though I wasn't totally impressed, my grandma loved it, so I gave it 4 stars, although this paperweight is pretty average in my opinion.

Love these for sewing!
I got these to hold pattern pieces on waterproof laminate to eliminate pin holes. They are PERFECT and way nicer than using canned food! I was surprised at how many times I use them. They are an excellent versatile colorful addition to my sewing room.

Pretty Paperweight will brighten your / her desk!
I LOVE my Java Blue Paperweight from Vera Bradley!!! I was originally purchasing it for one of my children's teachers, but I loved it so much that I bought two - - - one for the teacher and one for me! It's so nice to have one of my favorite Vera Bradley patterns right in front of me at my desk. When I look at it, it also reminds me to use my Betsy in Java Blue!!!

I brought several of these with Note Cubes and Pens for gifts.
I was a little disappointed.
It came in a cute box, but I am really used to some of my Mother and Grandmother's art glass paperweights. This one just has the image on the bottom and a glass dome.
The quality is good, but far from the OH WOW I usally feel about Vera Bradley Products.
