Great store. If they dont have what you are looking for they will make it. Unfortunately they are no longer open. If anyone knows where they are please post it online

We visited in the early afternoon. Store was not busy but they had some really great pieces. If you are traveling through Georgetown to 7 Mile Beach, it is worth the stop. I was not impressed with the shopping in Georgetown but I think the glass items were reasonably priced and much nicer than you will find anywhere on the... More

We stopped here and bought a stingray necklace for my daughter (She had been scouring the island unsuccessfully for one all week.) and a small glass cat figurine. They did have some gorgeous pieces. I thought the items were reasonably priced.

We caught them during lunch, so all was quiet. I did buy a lovely necklace (for only $15 US) that is very unique. You can also buy from them online which I will do. I wanted one of the beautiful stingray, but I didn't want to cart it home! I wished I could have seen a demo.

We stopped in the Island Glassblowing Studio after reading the great reviews. The artists there are very talented and friendly, and they can make gorgeous personalized pieces for you. My daughter is obsessed with turtles, and she wanted one made with specific colors for her room. They made a little turtle for her while we watched the whole process. There... More

If you have a port of call in Grand Cayman and want to bring home a real shopping deal, TURN LEFT when you exit the pier and take a brief walk along the main road. While visiting during our Carnival Cruise (CCL Conquest), we opted to buck the big corporate jewelry tour that the cruise line recommended and, instead, take... More

We've been visiting the island for over 12 yrs yet never went to this shop. Very sorry to have missed out all these years. But we'll be faithful customers from this point on! I bought a few pieces and feel for the beauty and craftmanship, I'd have paid more without question. It's not a mass produced place and the family... More

This was our 3rd trip to the glassblowing shop. Last April the owner made a turtle for my grandson, purple and teal, this trip we requested another one just like the first, no problem. I'm a flip flop nut and had several made of different colors for necklaces. The buisness is family run with everyone so friendly. This shop is... More

My family visited the studio on a whim after being stuck in some George Town traffic. We approached the studio slowly enough for us all to decide that we wanted to go in and have a look around. The people there were very friendly and didn't follow you around and pester you to buy things like they do in some... More
