I ordered a ring dish from Paloma's Nest with a tight turnaround before my wedding, and I was not disappointed! The dish was gorgeous and the perfect prop for our rings. The shop was incredibly easy to work with and generous in delivering the product on time. Great quality, great customer service.

Have ordered multiple times from Paloma's Nest and request is always met - this once there was a slight error BUT it was corrected immediately and left all involved with a smile! Will definitely be back on their site for future orders!

I have ordered items from this shop over the past 10 years for our wedding, birthday & anniversary gifts and our new home and as usual they did not disappoint. Absolutely beautiful ornament/keepsake. Highly suggest using them for unique gifts and will definitely be ordering from this shop again.

Luxury Heirlooms, Handcrafted for Generations to Come
Caroline Colom Vásquez and José Vásquez- Corbalan have been designing together since the day their worlds collided in Austin, Texas. Hailing from opposite ends of the globe (Caroline from historic Mystic, Connecticut, and José from the romantic city of Buenos Aires, Argentina), the two fell in love at first sight, but soon discovered a shared passion; their courtship included many evenings spent sketching designs and ideas onto cocktail napkins, and long weekends full of crafting their ideas from whatever materials they could find. Both entrepreneurs and dreamers at heart, the pair vowed to someday run a business together offering their design work to clients around the world. By marrying Caroline’s love of ceramics and design with José’s talents in woodworking and fine craftsmanship, the two settled in Austin and made that dream a reality. Paloma’s Nest was founded in 2007 and is a family-run business named after their daughter, Paloma (whose name means “dove” in Spanish). The brand creates timeless, heirloom-quality pieces intended to be cherished and passed on to future generations.
The luxury gifts from Paloma's Nest have been featured around the globe, including The New York Times, Martha Stewart Weddings, Good Morning America, and more. Their main site, palomasnest.com, has been named a Top Online Shopping destination by InStyle, and Top 20 Unique Gift Shop by the Huffington Post.
Having been trained by Etsy to mentor other sellers, Caroline & Jose share their experience and knowledge to educate other creatives- like you!- in starting or growing your online business through their work at Handcrafted Consulting. The pair has authored a monthly Business Matters column for the popular handmade blog Poppytalk, and taught at art schools and small business centers throughout the country. They have been interviewd by Inc. Magazine, and are quoted in books including Spark and Hustle by Tory Johnson, and 21st Century Careers by Scholastic Books. They would love to help you start to make a living from your art. Visit http://www.handcraftedconsulting.com for details.
