There is something so refreshing about spending time at the beach. Before our trip, I engraved 4 tumblers to bring along and photograph while we were there. A starfish, sand dollar, sea horse and sea turtle make crisp clean images for a set of tumblers.

Galax, ferns and bird vases

I just finished 50 small oval vases for a client to give as event gifts. Because they could not choose just one design, we split up the order using three designs: the ever popular love birds, fern branch and a new design, a galax leaf. I love the solid effect of the galax and already have plans to incorporate it into another vase. Even though there are multiples of these designs, each vase is truly unique. No two can be alike since all engraving is done by hand. (and I tend to freehand these designs as well) Take a look and check back for more new items soon.

Children's drawing engraved on glass

Recently a friend wanted to come up with a special gift for her mother's birthday and for it to be from all of her grandkids.
Somehow the two of us came up with this idea and I love how they turned out! Each child was asked to draw their favorite animal, using just one color of pencil or crayon.
Then I sized each drawing to fit onto stemless wine glasses (which are also great juice glasses) and the results are pictured here. The carafe ties it all together and has the phrase, "All creatures great and small".
