What in the heck is a Glabel or a Wine Charm?
Decorative rings with unique
charms that help identify each person's glass and avoid confusion: they
attach to the stems of wine glasses (see
example), coffee mug s (see
example), beer mugs (see
example), margarita glasses, soda or beer cans (see
example) or Styrofoam cups (see
example) wherever your imagination allows. No more deciding
if that's your lipstick on the rim!
Where do Wine Charms come from?
No one knows for sure where
the idea of personally marking wine glasses with rings originated, but karen's kreations has raised it
to an art form and a means of personal expression.
