A Cushion for Cocktail Conversations


I love big rings, but sometimes big rings don’t love me – making my fingers spread uncomfortably or being so top-heavy they swirl upside down. Don’t get me animated lest I go clocking someone in the head with my hand. It’s happened before and it can happen again.

If you wear big rings, you know what I’m talking about. So when I came across Patchwork Pillow rings by Raeburn Ink I was elated.

Raeburn Ink designer Jenn Cooke says at her site: “I’ve been saving odds and ends of fabric for a while now. I recently started collaging them together, and loving the results. These became my Patchwork Collection.

They are pieced together from linen, cotton, and silk fabrics, and filled with ultra soft stuffing. The printed fabric pieces are original screen prints from my Macro/Micro and Geographic collections – the placement of the print varies a little bit on each ring, so they won’t all look exactly like the picture. I’ve added contrast stitching in a stripe pattern with orange thread. The finger loop is made from a soft and stretchy material that is super comfortable.”

Choose from smaller chunky to totally funky big pillow rings that spice up an outfit or, for you designers, serve as a place to put your pins while working.

The designer pads her cushy line with other accessories as well as organic t-shirts, pillows and bags.

By surrounding yourself with Raeburn Ink pieces there’s the potential to make your life that much softer. And people will absolutely be transfixed at parties when you talk. Not to mention you’ll avert potential injuries as you gab.

Now that’s a way to keep friends.
