I'm a little old-fashioned, and I think that my married husband should look, um, married.
After Thanksgiving, I stumbled across Rob and Leighanne's Etsy shop after Thanksgiving. I was drawn to their ring designs, and the fact that they utilize unusual materials -- wood, titanium, enamel, hard surface -- in addition to traditional precious metals.
I inquired about their titanium rings, and found that they use a commercially pure titanium, which is hypoallergenic! I decided to order this ring for my husband as an anniversary present.
A few days ago, the ring arrived. OH MY. It is so beautiful in person. Photos just don't do it justice.
My husband loved it -- and I am so relieved, as he is very picky about things like this. Unfortunately, I ordered the wrong size (too big) and will have to order another ring.
But the craftsmanship is unbelievable, and you can feel and see the pride that went into handcrafting this piece. The customer service is great, and they're just neat people. Please drop by their shop after a while -- their shop is temporarily closed at the moment.
My new pincushion. . . .
I received a new pincushion from igobylorib! It's from the pincushion swap I organized on Craftster.
This baby is massive! And I just love it. I think it's made from recycled sweaters, too -- so cool. It will be presiding over my sewing area, making my other pincushions jealous (or intimidated.) (Thanks, Lori!)
I'll start sign-ups for Round 10 of the pincushion swap, so stay tuned if you're interested!
