Last week, my wife turned 30. We went out for a fancy six-course meal, sipped gorgeous cocktails, and I presented her with two handmade gifts:
One, from an Etsy store in Spain, combined her twin passions for miniatures and human anatomy.
The other, made in our shop, was more practical, but made from our deep violet purpleheart, her favorite color, and engraved with one of our wedding motifs.
They went over well! A thoughtfully chosen, handmade gift has the potential to bring a lot of joy to your loved ones, and with Valentine's Day coming up, we thought we'd help out those who need some help with the hand-making.
Red as Rubies
This is padauk. It grows in Africa, and when finished the grain glows a deep bloodred. We've been asked if we dye the wood this color, and the truth is it's all natural, and very striking. In addition, our current stock of padauk wood is slightly chatoyant, throwing light in unexpected ways from a shimmery, faux-3D grain pattern.
Padauk is the perfect wood to use to make a beautiful handmade case from, a bold statement of love for that special someone. For the month of February, we've takin $40 off the price tag of all padauk phone cases. In addition, you can save 20% off your entire order using the coupon code LOVE20.
