Favorite Email Award Goes to...

I got the following email from Jesse, and I was tickled pink to tell my boss what an excellent job I've been doing! Thanks Jesse, it's been a pleasure making your ring and this may be one of the nicest emails we've ever gotten!

Hey Robin just a question, do you have a supervisor, or someone in charge of you, that I could email? You just provided some really awesome service, and I really appreciated it! If you have a superior, I would really like to send them an email, talking about how great you are at your job, and how lucky they are to have you as an employee. You really made this experience something great, and I want to show my appreciation. All the best!


We received a surprise email with a painting of Bunny attached to it yesterday! Kira came to our shop when we were open on Broadway, in Brooklyn and took a picture of Buns. She later turned it into this amazing portrait! Her site is awesome, click here, to take a look!

Hi Robin! I can't really express to you the magnitude of my gratitude in you getting me these rings in a very tight time frame. This gesture to my husband made our 10year wedding anniversary a million times better! You have a loyal client in me! Thank you so much!! He said yes all over again btw teehee- Daniela


Hello, I just saw on your blog that you're giving away free Bittersweets NY patches... may I have one please? Attached please find a picture of my bunny graciously modeling my Bittersweets rose gold unicorn horn charm, which I wear often. Don't worry, he didn't mind being a temporary bunnicorn. He gave me many little bunny kisses after the photo was taken.
Love this bunny!!!! xoxoxo r

spock's mug on a mug

i know, i love spock too much. i think i know where i'm getting some holiday gifts this year... here.


found this ancient tag for bittersweets (ny) made by hope (drawing) and laura (design/layout.) back then, we made some some very heavy* belt buckles.

*yes, literally heavy as in weighing too much, but if you want to interpret that as cool-heavy, i won't stop you.

favorite mid october email

We received the rings in the mail a few days ago...and they are absolutely adorable. I love them, they are exactly what I had pictured. :) my husband was super surprised and loves his. it's a teeeny bit large but he says he'll wear it around for a few days and then decide what to do. Mine is perfect! :) thanks a bunch, this was something really special to both of us! - daniela :))

we took a ...

break from making jewelry because this is what the sky looked like outside.

September Sweetie!

Dear Robin,

So, the rings are FABULOUS!!!!!!!! I can't thank you enough. You have no idea how much all this means to me. I also LOVED the packaging, and that you typed on a paper bag; the wooden boxes with black ribbon is a fantastic idea! And thank you for the beautiful card made of recycled paper!!!

Rob absolutely LOVES his ring! And I am also extremely happy with the look of mine - the only thing is, it might still be a touch too small. I am going to wear it for a few more days and if it keeps bothering me I will send it back to you just to make it a little bigger. But I really like how thin these rings are! Very comfortable and unique!!!

I found your page on Facebook and clicked "LIKE". Will recommend to all my friends!!!

Thank you so much and kind regards,

bigger twigs

we have a new ring heading over to Catbird. it's from the same tree that made our classic Brilliant Twig Ring. we hunted for a larger branch last spring and over the summer, made this heftier version. Seen here in 22k, matte finish. ask the 'birdettes to see the new O'Big Twig Rings.

twigs that fit together

memento mori

some sketches for the inside of the memento mori band. maybe we'll get around to lining the outside of a band with one of these guys...

mysterious shapes afoot

working on new rings inspired by this rock formation.

from wiki: a dreikanter is a type of ventifact that typically forms in desert or periglacial environments due to the abrasive action of blowing sand. dreikanters exhibit a characteristic three-faced pyramidal shape. the word dreikanter is a german word meaning "a three-sider."

Nicest Email for August!!

Hi Robin,

I absolutely love my brilliant twig engagement ring and twig marquee curve band! I can't image more beautiful, unique and special rings to symbolize my marriage. They're stunning! The level personalization you provided in creating them and sizing them for me has been unmatched and the customer service you provided is just incredible.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Summer Proposal!


The holiday to NY was great, just a bit too hot to enjoy it fully as we couldn't see everything we wanted to see. But that just means we will need to come to NY again... which is hardly a chore.

As you can see from the picture Shellie said yes to my proposal at the top of the empire state building. Thank you so much for the help with the ring.

Antique Finish

Not a huge difference seen here between shiny and matte. It's much easier to see the contrast in person. Matte below:


Nice fit!

Here's how pretty the Brilliant Twig ring and the Marquise Twig with a Curve look together.
