Tedi Thompson-Magrini is a transplant from Northern Virginia. While she has always loved art and working with her hands, her formal training is in education and management. Shortly before taking an early retirement from a career in high education, six years ago, she discovered alcohol ink. The flow and designs created by the ink had her hooked and eventually resulted in Carolina Color Creations.
In addition to coasters, Carolina Color Creations offers magnets, inked candles, upcycled lighted wine bottles, switch plate covers and even some jewelry, key chains and bookmarks. Alcohol ink can be used on a variety of non-porous materials and Tedi loves experimenting with different substrates. For a change of pace, she also makes beaded ceiling fan pulls and welcomes special order coasters. She has done coasters with pets, weddings, vacations, and images special or the recipient to create lasting memories.
