A few weeks ago, I came across this awesome beetle ring from 19Moons on Etsy. I’m a connoisseur of big, gaudy rings and HAD.TO.HAVE.IT, so I started hounding Christina to buy it for me. Imagine my surprise when it appeared between my doors the same day Christina finally ordered it. At first I thought Christina was so afraid my wrath would incinerate several boroughs that she paid an extra grand to have it shipped via rocket; but then I realized that the seller, Niffer, lives only a few streets down from me and hand-delivered it. I thought that was so nice, and aside from the ring being even more gorgeous in real life, the packaging was so great, too.
After exchanging a few convos on Etsy, we met up last night for some greasy diner food and a slice of blueberry pie sandwiched between the strangest, tasteless, compressed crust I’ve ever come across that wasn’t processed in a snack food factory and packaged in cellophane. The filling was nice, though.
Niffer was really cool and on top of having amazing talent for creating unique jewelry (I’m seriously complimented at least twice every time I wear my beetle ring out), she has really great taste in movies. I hope she didn’t think I was lame and that she’ll go to a haunted house with me next month.
Check out her shop, for real. Her pieces are so much fun, sturdy, and amazingly detailed.
