Sender: Couppee, Nikki
Contents: Titanic relic-worthy objects — from found mini clamshells to colored and cut stone — combined into fresh earring, necklace, and ring designs.
Order Notes: Standard statement pieces get lost in this bunch. Prized cargo includes Fire Coral, a $300 earring duo pairing a lone red twig with a transparent citron yellow sliver and faux silver foil beneath faceted plexiglass; and Diamonds and Pearls, a $650 double-sided brooch blending faceted gray enamel with a brass chain link and wood.
Delivery Preferences: Anything can be customized to customers’ liking and turned around in about three weeks.
Declared Value: $85-$750. (A lower-priced line is in the works, but she prefers to keep weightier orders original, a la commissioned works of art.)
In other words, this ship is priceless.
