On Etsy since 2014

In the Heart of the Kawarthas...

Glass Island Designs' studio is located on a small island in the heart of the scenic Kawartha Lakes in Ontario, Canada. It is here that owners Valerie and Steve design and create their unique etched and engraved glassware and gifts

For over sixteen years Valerie and Steve have operated a business for stained glass and gifts, including etched glassware.

After expanding their line of custom etched glassware, they were looking for a well managed online outlet for their product. Researching the options, they decided Etsy would be a great fit and opened their Glass Island Designs online store in April 2014.

Living surrounded by beautiful countryside is an inspiration to them, and their original designs are created to reflect the natural beauty of nature. Wherever they go, the environment, as well as architecture gives them new ideas.

All their etchings are from Glass Island Designs original artwork, and the willingness and ability to go the extra mile make them the number one choice for their many returning customers.

Steve and Valerie divide the designing between them relying on each other when a creative block occurs – although they never seem to lack ideas for new designs! Inspiration can come from something they see or hear, a suggestion from a family member, or a request from a customer. Valerie and Steve both love a challenge, and are always willing to see what can be achieved.

Quality of Service is one of the highest priorities for Glass Island Designs, and as such, Steve and Valerie are only happy when their customers are happy, allowing them to boast a 5/5 star review rating on Etsy.

As well as the basic personalization offered, they are always willing to customize and work with their clients on designs until all parties are satisfied with the end result.

Glassware selected for etching is chosen for its quality and durability. Glass Island Designs' products have to be durable enough for everyday use, while still being elegant enough for weddings and gifts.

After a meticulous setup process, the etching of glassware is completed in a professional sandblasting cabinet by Valerie, Steve, and Richard.

The finished products are cleaned, and carefully packed, first in tissue, and then in bubble wrap, then finally snuggled in a box surrounded by peanuts, all to ensure your orders arrive safely.
