About this Product
A perfect addition to your Thanksgiving table. These candle holders are hand sandblast engraved with "Thankful" or "Blessed", or you may choose your own word.
They are then painted with three coats of acrylic paint - one black and two white coats and then sealed. The black paint will give a shadow image on the mirror.
These 'Mercury Glass' style holders are embellished with an elegant antique finish which is perfect for holiday gatherings and when a tea light is inside, the light comes through the speckled design to make an awesome star lit atmosphere.
The holders come in two sizes, 2 x 2.27 inches and 3.25 x 2.50 inches . The bronze espresso color is perfect for fall decoration.
Meet the Maker
First things first, you are probably wondering about the name .. Gobby Brit Designs....
It's an English thing (yes, I'm English) The definition of "gobby" is 'a person who talks too loudly in a blunt or opinionated way' and yes, I have been accused of that, a LOT! I have a blog about my time moving to the USA and it was very chatty (and opinionated) so what better name to give it than The Gobby Brit. My business was an extension of that blog and here we are.
I've been artsy-fartsy most of my life. I used to love to draw, but then life got in the way, as it usually does. Quite a few years ago I began screen printing shirts for a local motorcycle club and I also added embroidery along the way, I enjoyed it, and still do many orders, but I felt like something was missing.
In 2017 we were at a trade show and spotted a company selling "sand carving" equipment and my interest was peaked! We spoke to them for a long time, went to their quick class that day and ended up leaving the show as proud owners of a brand new sand carving system. A month later, we went to their weekend long training, gained our certificates and that, as they say was the beginning of a love affair!
We offer custom sandblast engraved mugs, tumblers, glass items and gifts. I can engrave on glass, wood, metal, ceramic - in fact, I've tried my hand at engraving many different substrates and my repertoire is increasing with each item I find I am able to engrave.

How it’s Made
All items are sandblast engraved. Sandblasting, or sand carving, is when compressed air flows through a hose forcibly propelling a stream of abrasive material (sand) onto a surface (mug/glass/tumbler, etc)
Once the design is engraved, it is then painted with high quality acrylic paint.
Sandblast Engraving is permanent. All items are premium acrylic paint filled and matte sealed.
While these are considered dishwasher safe, I recommend handwashing as all dishwashers vary in power and I want you to enjoy your mug for as long as possible.
