In the Spotlight- Blyth House Creations

In my many jaunts through Etsy, I sometimes run across a crafter who particularly catches my eye.  Such is the case with Leslie at Blyth House Creations.  Her shop offers natural slate coasters, wall art, magical trinket boxes, mixed media assemblage, and collage. 

Her beautiful coaster sets are amazing.  Each set is cut from a single slate tile to retain uniformity in color and texture. Each tile is sanded to remove sharp edges. A protective finish is applied to the outside surface to enhance the beautifully rich color of the slate stone. Then each is hand-carved with its unique design. The natural stone surface that is revealed during the carving process provides a wonderful contrast. 

The raw surface of the carved slate naturally absorbs moisture, and the weight of the stone prevents the coaster from adhering to the bottom of a glass. A unique rubberized foam, that is easily cleaned and dried in case of accidental spills, has been applied to the bottom of each coaster to protect delicate furniture surfaces. 

Each set features four coasters and are beautiful, handcrafted original pieces that are signed and dated by this internationally collected artist. The set of four coasters comes bundled with ribbon and a tag describing the artist and product.

Along with the coasters, there are lots of other beautiful, unique gifts at Blyth House.  Maybe for Mothers Day or Fathers Day.  And you know they are both just around the corner!  So take a moment and swing by Blyth House Creations.  You will love the artistry and the amazing selection.
