Etched Glass centerpieces
Gina was putting together an intimate family get together for her mom's 80th Birthday. She found these glass vases in various shapes she wanted to use as centerpieces for her sit down dinner but wanted to personalize them for her mom's occasion. On the front we etched "80 to Perfection" and on the back, "Friends Forever, Forever Young". She filled them with candy and wrapped each with a bow. One guest from each table got to take the keepsake home. An added touch for a special night.
Pam bought a Orrefors Arctic Vase for a friend's wedding but wanted to add a personal touch. The vase has 6 panels to it and we used each of them. I etched an inscription provided to me by Pam on the front with the couple's names and wedding date. The 3 panels that extended higher than the other 3 we engraved Live, Laugh, Love and each. On the 2 remaining panels, I added fluttering butterflies.
Customized Irish vase by Crystal Swan Etchings
Patricia's parent's anniversary is St. Patrick's Day. She wanted to give them a unique gift. She liked the tall, cylindrical vase that is posted on my website shown with a different design. She asked if I could engrave an Irish Blessing on it with a celtic knot and wanted to have her parent's anniversary date along with each of her sibling's marriage dates. We left a little room at the bottom to add her sister's wedding date next year.

Al from the Islanders Motorcycle Club brought a bottle of Jack Daniels in looking to have a plate engraved and stuck on the bottle wishing his Low Riders Motorcycle Club friends a Happy Anniversary. I suggested to him if he would trust me and allow me to remove the back label, I would etch into the glass bottle the same inscription but leaving a more permanent and finished look. He gave me the ok and was more than happy with the finished product.
