I wanted to incorporate beach sand into my creations and I found a way to ensure that no granules of sand will come off. From the last picture, you can see that it is almost hard to tell where the sand ends and the cup begins - and that is exactly what I wanted to do - bring a little bit of my beach vacation home with me.

**Note**This is a made-to-order cup, as this exact pencil holder is mine! :)
------Once purchased, It will take approximately 4 days to complete, with the cup being shipped out on the 5th day, as long as the post office is open. Your cup will look very similar to the one pictured.

This upcycled jar stands 4.5 inches tall and about 2 1/4 inches across. If you are interested in another size, please just send me a message, I welcome custom orders.

I have a more "traditional" designed pencil holder, using this sand technique here,

About my art:
I use a hand formed cement and stucco mixture which creates a rock solid surface, which I adhere to the glassware. I then either paint the vases or cups - in some cases with multiple layers of color for the perfect effect or dye the mixture prior to adherence.... They are very durable and intended for use.

Care of the cup: The inside can be hand washed with warm soapy water. If the outside needs cleaning, a damp cloth will do. I do not recommend submerging the vase in water, as that may compromise the finish.
