Small crystal perfume bottle.  Engraved as a thankyou for a young man who went beyond the call of duty to help out a complete stranger.  Thank you Patrick!!  (the perfume bottle is a gift for his wife)  :-)

The lettering has been sand-carved the decoration drill and hand engraved.

New Items Added To Sand-Carved Page

Commissioned piece:
The butterflies have been sand-carved in 2 stages to give a darker shade to the filled in areas in the butterflies.
More examples of sand-carved items can be viewed on the Sand-Carved page. 

Quite a few of my customers have asked if can put the cake toppers on a base (rather than having a spike to secure them in the cake)... now I can :-)

Here's a couple of new designs with Kiwiana type graphics.  These are crafted (by me) from 3mm acrylic and the graphics and personalised messages are sand-carved.
