Updating my Etsy shop!

Over the next week I plan to update my Etsy shop to add new jewelry, ornaments, wall panels, wall pockets and these silver barrettes. So check back often...

One of my good friends from Kent's graduate program, Nikki Couppee, made this pin (top) and ring (bottom) for N. and me in a trade. I gave her a copper bowl, a silver spoon and an ornament and I still feel like she got jipped, because these are sooooo beautiful.

N.'s pin is a Smith and Wesson .44 magnum and the hand gesture on my ring is not only the letter 'C', for Corey, but is also a gesture made by stage-hands in Mexico when a live television broadcast is going to a commercial break. Evidently the literal translation of what it means in Spanish is "there's still more," so Nikki also intends this as a sign of good wishes for our future. I could not be happier!

Thank you Nikki!!
