Hostess Gift For The Holidays!

What my customer said:
Jolene, I have my tiles! They are absolutely gorgeous! They look even better in person. Very rustic, very classy. This was exactly the look I was trying to go for. I appreciate your time and attention to this project. I think your style is great. Thank you so much!

I like working with natural stone tile. I like the way it gives a rustic 'time-worn' look to the things I create...those who know me know that I love to create things that appear to have a 'history' - as if it has just been re-discovered in your grandparents basement - or found on the dusty shelf of a roadside thrift shop.
A customer in the Bay area wanted a set of Frida coasters to give as a gift to a friend. I worked the images into the tile, following the nooks and crannies of the natural stone tile. I liked the end result - and so did my customer :)
(the tiles are sealed/waterproofed, have a foam backing to protect furniture and measure 4"x4")

I would love to make a custom tile coaster set for you as well, using any images you would like ...
they make a wonderful
