Engraving…. new ideas, new challenge!

Posted on


Hi :) 
I’ve been thinking for a while what else I can do to make my gifts more personal…. I already make personalised Cakes and hampers but what could I do with the other bits I create? Well… I was thinking for a while about engraving, watched lots of youtube videos  and last week I finally got my first engraving set!
I was so excited I can give it a go that I tried it on few materials: metal, wood, plastic and glass.  I have to say that I need loooots of practice BUT I am happy with my first results and I got my first order for a personalised keyring with customer’s name on it!
The lady who collected the keyring was very happy with the result and it means a lot for me :)  
Here is my first job:

After this I decided to try if it’s hard to write on glass… without any stencils just hand engraving. It wasn’t easy as it’s very slipper but it was better than on metal :) Now I have my very own Glass!  I know it doesn’t look very good but it was my 1st try and I think I can do better than this. I just need more time and loooots of practice!!!
I hope I will be able to offer whole new range of gifts before Christmas…
Time will show :)

Here is my 1st go on the glass :)

Do you think there are chances I will be engraver some day?
Share your thoughts, please.
Have a lovely day,
