Love this design very much! The only problem is that you absolutely cannot get any water on it as the glass does not cover the magazine piece well and it will get wet.

About

GIVING VINTAGE COMIC BOOKS A SECOND CHANCE!

I started this company out of need. I needed to be a stay at home mom for my two boys. I was determined to find a way to do so. When I was young I enjoyed reading comic books. Care Bears, Popples and Betty and Veronica to name a few. My husband is a comic book collector and illustrator, so he brought me back into this world again. We would go to flea markets and garage sales noticing a lot of beat up comic books. Not worth much as a collector's point of view, but I loved the look of them. There is something about old comic books, the illustrations were wonderful. Having a degree in graphic design, I wanted to make something to showcase and preserve the artwork in those books. That is how Comic Salvage was born. I couldn't have dreamed about my little shop doing so well. After a year of really perfecting my jewelry and brand, I'm really happy with it. I never want to get completely comfortable, I always want to learn, grow and just get better. New ideas are always flashing in my head, even in the middle of the night. My best seller are my Puzzle Links. I created two cufflinks that fit together to reveal one image! I haven't seen this before anywhere and I tried it out, it was a big hit. I do a lot of groomsmen sets for weddings! Comic Salvage has been on numerous websites and blogs, such as Boing Boing, Geek Mom, When Geeks Wed, The Broke Ass Bride and Geekadelphia to name a few. This year a pair of my Puzzle Links were given to Tom Felton ( from Harry Potter ) at the NYC Comic Con! I was even featured in Inked Magazine last fall. I think I bought every copy of that magazine in a 20 mile radius! Did I mention, I love Etsy?!
