Please ask me for current making times on this item.
Made to your color choices :-)
Choose from a pair or a set of 4 coasters with (or without) a lightly textured top surface (to help keep your drinks in place!)
Texture is random - it depends on how the firings come out, but if you have a preference for glossy or textured tops please let me know via note when ordering.
Photos 1 and 3 show them with a White base, Turquoise, Purple and Gold swirl lines with gold sparkles and a glossy top.
Photo 2 shows them with a Black base, Purple, Silver and Gold swirl lines and silver sparkles with a textured top.
Photo 4 shows them with a Black base, Teal and Gold swirl lines with a glossy top and no sparkles.
Photo 5 shows a black base with Turquoise lines, silver sparkles and a textured top.
These are available in other colors made to your requirements - please select your preferred main glass base color and either gold or silver sparkles, from the drop-down menu when ordering.
You can also choose to have a mixture of gold and silver sparkles or no sparkles at all if you prefer! If you go for the mixture please let me know in your note if you want them mixed together in the same swirl or separated into silver sparkle swirls and gold sparkle swirls.
Options in the drop down menu are for the base glass color only - For the color(s) of the swirling lines you will need to add a note with your order as Etsy only lets me have 2 drop down menus and there are way too many choices!
You can have the lines painted in one color or many colors - it's up to you :-)
The line colors I have available are:
Black, White, Grey, Dark Blue, Turquoise, Dark Green, Light Green, Yellow, Orange, Red-Orange, Brown, Pink, Crimson, Purple, Amethyst, Lavender, Teal, Kelly Green, Camel, Carbon Blue, Periwinkle, Deep Red, Sesame, Marigold, Terracotta, Ivory, plus there are three metallic colors: Copper, Silver and Gold.
Please note that line colors will look different on the different base colors - in the photos the darker blue looking lines on the white base are actually the same purple that looks purple on the black base.
If you want to order more than 4 coasters, or a base glass color that is either not listed or shown as out of stock, then please ask me - I will be glad to create a custom order for you :-)
I usually make the coasters so that the pattern swirls from one to another - but if you would like them not to 'join up' then just say so in the note with your order :-)
These sturdy coasters are made from kiln fused 6 mm thick art glass and measure approx. 10 x 10 cm. (4 " x 4 " )
Each one comes complete with 4 discrete rubber feet on the underneath to protect your surfaces from harm.
Hand made, by me, in my studio, these stunning coasters are unique - each one is a one-of-a-kind original.
Perfect for any room, these coasters are truly stunning and will create a fabulous focal point in your home.
Heat proof for hot drinks (also cold proof for your frozen margaritas!)
They are dishwasher safe (top rack only) but I recommend hand washing them to prevent 'dishwasher bloom' marring their beauty.

Hallmarking - timescales, requirements and verifiability.
The UK 1973 Hallmarking Act requires by law that items weighing over 7.78grams in silver be hallmarked by the assay office. Items under this weight do not require this and may be stamped '925' or 'sterling' by the maker.
The UK assay office hallmark is your absolute guarantee of purity of metal.
I am registered with the Goldsmiths Assay office in London and have my own sponsors mark registered with them.
All of my items weighing over 7.7 grams of silver will have the full UK hallmark which incorporates my registered sponsors mark into it.
Items I make that are under 7.7 grams of silver will either have 925 and my initials marked on the back or, often, will have no marks at all. (occasionally I get them hallmarked under the 7 grams anyways!)
If you would like any of my smaller items to be hallmarked please contact me about the costs and times involved in doing so.
Hallmarking usually takes between one and three weeks to process, but can be expedited for an additional fee.
Custom made and made to order items for residents of other countries who do not wish for the items to be hallmarked (to save time and expense!)
Under part II of schedule 1 of the 1973 Hallmarking Act. As amended by the
Hallmarking (Exempted Articles) (Amendment) Order 1975 and the Hallmarking
(Exempted Articles) Orders 1982 and 1986.
1. An article which is intended for dispatch to a destination outside the
Please ask when (or before) ordering if you wish to take advantage of the exemption I can still stamp your item 925 and with my initials in place of the assay office hallmark if required in this situation.
I am sorry but I do not accept returns or cancellations (or make refunds) on made to order, personalized and custom order items (unless I have made an error).
Cancellations can only be made BEFORE I have ordered the materials / started work on your items.
Once I have ordered the materials or started work on your item(s) then I will be unable to cancel or change your order.
Yes, I ship to all countries where able to do so (some items may be too large or heavy)

These coasters are beautifully made, and you can view the coasters before they are sent- just to see if they're what you had envisaged, which is really helpful. I would certainly suggest that you order your own custom made coasters! Very pleased with mine!
