For those of you in Michigan, it's time to start pulling boats out of storage and hitting the water! Those following us here at First Mate are obviously of the most discriminating taste. We know you have have spent much time, money, and energy getting your boat looking tip-top. A fresh buff, wax, and detailing doesn't come cheap, but it makes the ride all the more enjoyable and pride-filled. There's nothing better than seeing the sun glisten off the shining white hulls for the first time in that glowing spring sunshine.
Of course, all that money spent on blingin' your ride is for nothing if you don't look good yourself! That's why I suggest you reward yourself for your hard work by swinging in and talking to the artisan jewelers at Craft-Revival in Grand Rapids, MI. These guys will help you stand out on the docks by putting some custom made shine on for the season! They can also help you give a truly unique and amazing gift for your boating friend, lover, or partner.
Specializing in high quality hand made pieces in almost any metal you can think of, these guys are truly at the top of their game. I have personally had a couple of rings made by Jason & the guys and their attention to detail is absolutely stellar. Nothing will match the shine of your yacht like the sparkle of a couple fresh diamonds and some white gold!
From their website...
"We create jewelry that is made for you, not sold to you. Mix any of our available precious metals with any stone or pearl from around the world and create a one of a kind ring or pendant. Other products include a wide variety of bridal sets and engagement rings, cuff links, belt buckles and broaches. Aside from our constantly evolving Craft-Revival signature selection, we are able to create finished custom pieces made just for you. If you do not see exactly what you are looking for, present your idea and challenge us!"
Jason at Craft-Revival is also a licensed importer of rare animal pelts and skins. I personally drool over the amazing selection of stingray wallets and clutches, gator skin briefcases, eel money clips, and custom iPad cases on display. Nothing would make your dock-mates more jealous than a custom gator skin fighting chair!
So go ahead and let your imagination run wild this spring. Match a cocktail ring to your sweet new hull pin-striping, protect your teak aft cockpit dining table with hand sewn stingray coasters (Steve Irwin will thank you), or get your boat's name engraved into a new custom platinum ring inset with any stone or pearl you desire. Custom cuff-links to match would be perfect! Whatever you do, tell the guys at Craft-Revival that First Mate sent you!
