During a recent visit to the Hockey Hall of Fame last September, I was mesmerized by the beautiful hand drawn engravings on some of the older hockey trophies. It was difficult to get a good pic of them since they were all behind glass and far away, but this one gives a good idea of what you'll find there. So beautiful and inspiring! I'd love to see this technique applied to a pair of champagne flutes or a beautiful picture frame. The lettering style would also translate really well for super fancy wedding invitations. I love the personal touch that the hand engraving brings (vs. machine engraved). Engravings this beautiful stand the test of time which is a key element to a great wedding gift.

2012 was really exciting, including being a part of DUCF. I got to chat with some of Detroit's finest crafters, which may lead to some fun collaboration projects down the road. Stay tuned for updates on that.
Along with project updates, I'll be posting the usual bloggy things like inspiration, cool products, and anything else blog-worthy. Cheers!
