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.
