Gucci Fragrance Bottle Engraving in Houston

As always, it is a pleasure engraving for clients at events here in Houston.  This weekend, I had the privilege of working with Gucci fragrances.  Gucci Bamboo has become a personal favorite and is clearly a favorite of others as well.  It figuratively flew off of the shelves this Mother's Day weekend.  This bottle was also incredibly easy to engrave.  Even better! Cheers!

Marc Jacobs Fragrance Engraving Event - Houston Engraver

In the spirit of immersing myself into Spanish, this will be the first of many blog posts where I write in both English & Spanish.  Wish me luck!

As always, it is a pleasure working with the Marc Jacobs fragrance team.  Often times, my events with them are quite busy which is wonderful!  Unfortunately, that often means that I forget to take pictures.  However, here is a picture of the very last bottle of the very last event that I did with them :).  Cheers!

Estoy aún aprendiendo español.  Favor de aceptar mis sinceras disculpas por errores.

Como siempre, es un placer trabajar con el equipo de Marc Jacobs para perfume.  A veces, mis eventos con ellos son ocupados.  Desafortunadamente, olvido sacar fotos.  Sin embargo, aquí es una foto desde el día último del evento último.  Estoy agradecida por su paciencia.  Muchísimas gracias!

Engraving Events - Houston Engraver

December was amazing!  Estaba muy ocupada!  I was insanely busy!  As of the last few years, I have made it a habit to close my Etsy shop from late November through December due to the busy engraving/calligraphy calendar outside of the Etsy shop.  It is truly an honor and a pleasure to engrave at events all around the city for fragrance companies and wine & spirit companies.  The last wine event that I worked for Kenwood wines at Spec's Midtown had an unexpected request.  There was a client that purchased bottles for her loved one, but also purchased a corkscrew to include as a gift.  Makes sense...  While I was engraving her bottles, she asked if I could engrave the corkscrew as well.  When it comes to these requests, I ALWAYS direct them to the company representative that is paying for me to be there.  At the end of the day, I want for all parties involved to be pleased...especially the party that is paying me :).  The representative said, "sure, why not?"  So to make a short story shorter, I engraved her metal corkscrew with the gentleman's last name as she watched.  Voila!  Cheers!

Burberry Fragrance Bottle Engraving - Houston / Austin Engraver

The last few weeks have been quite busy, hence the delay in blog entries.  However, I had the pleasure of working with Burberry fragrances over the last few weeks for fragrance bottle engraving.  What a treat!  This was one of my favorites from that event.  Cheers!

Fragrance Bottle Engraving - Houston Engraver

Quite often, I am asked "so you are a calligrapher/penman/engraver?  How do you make a living at that?"  Well, here is one way....fragrance bottle engraving.  The last 2 weeks have been fragrance bottle engraving events nonstop for Mother's Day.  I LOVE IT!  It was such a pleasure working with PradaCalvin Klein, Jimmy Choo, Marc Jacobs and Chloe yesterday.  

I love that I am able to use my love of hand lettering, calligraphy & engraving AND make a living.  Who could ask for more?  If you noticed that my business is making a departure from wedding invitation design and wedding envelope addressing, you would be correct.  I absolutely ADORE making the reception pieces (tiles, agate stones, mirror seating charts, laser cut wood calligraphy) and those will REMAIN as interestingly they have become what I am known for :).  Hope you enjoy this journey as much as I am.  Cheers!

Marc Jacobs Fragrance Engraving Event - Houston Engraver

This fragrance bottle was one of my favorites from a recent fragrance engraving event for Marc Jacobs.  Most of my Houston engraving events are for wine & spirits, but I have recently started doing more work with fragrance companies.  It's quite a bit of fun so I look forward to more of the perfume engraving events.  Cheers!
