A Crystal Clear View of Etching ...

As jewelrymakers, when we hear the word "etching" our thoughts immediately turn to toxic chemicals and metal.  But, how about sandblasting on crystal?  Oh, yeah!

Gary, my friend and computer guru at the Painting with Fire Ning, has just opened an etsy shop.  Isn't this the loveliest thing ... perfect to commemorate special occasions you have celebrated this year.

Gary has an artist's eye ... he gave our ning a beautiful facelift and set up special pages for things like our recent Bead Swap, of which I know you are aware.

His work speaks for itself ... it is beautiful ... but I would like to speak about Gary.  When you order a personalized object, you're expecting that your item will be ready when you need it.  Since history is the best predictor of the future, I can guarantee that if Gary makes a commitment, he will follow through AND he is a pleasure to work with.

So, please keep Gary's beautiful work in mind when you're decorating your tree this year ... and remember the special things you want to commemorate ... in the process you'll be helping an individual artist. Visit Gary here.
