"Design features the Colorado state flag, with and aged and distressed texture. Great case for anyone who loves to travel, or who's missing beautiful Colorado.
"Slim fit snap-on case allows easy access to all buttons, controls and ports. Maintains a slim profile, covering the back, sides and corners of the phone, leaving the screen uncovered for easy operating. Phone cover is made using a dye-sublimation print process which results in a bold, clear image that will not fade, peel or scratch off. Perfect, stylish way to protect and decorate your phone!"
"Show off your state pride.
"This ring was machine cut and hand stamped from a US Quarter for the state of Colorado. I attempted to take as many photos to capture the great detail of the ring. The ring reads Colorado (1876) on one edge. You can also see United States of America along the inside portion of the ring. Great care was taken to maintain the ribbed edges of the quarter.
"It has a silvertone finish with a nice gloss patina. The ring will be customized to your size -- 5-15. Please allow 1 week for the ring to arrive in your custom size.
"The ring will come a ring box -- perfect for gift giving."

"A wonderful way to show your Colorado Pride! These are made to order, and you can be creative with your designs. The lastest one I've done is putting the C on the side just like it is on the flag and I absolutely love it! Tassels and ball can be all of the colors or just white, be creative! Please specify details when ordering! Sizes: XS/S & M/L.
"To give you an idea on sizes: My head measures 22", but I have thick hair, and I like a little room in my earflaps, so I wear a M/L. A customer ordered a S with a 21" head and very fine hair and it fit her perfect."
"Hand cut US Quarter Dollar from the America the Beautiful series with 18" Silver plated chain.
"The Colorado quarter depicts a sweeping view of the state's rugged Rocky Mountains with evergreen trees and a banner carrying the inscription "Colorful Colorado." Colorado's Rocky Mountains are home to some of the Nation's most majestic natural wonders. Among these, rising approximately 10,000 feet from the valley floor in Northwest Colorado, Grand Mesa is the largest flat-top mountain in the world, and is home to more than 200 lakes and many miles of scenic hiking trails."

"As a proud resident of the beautiful state of Colorado, I just coudn't put off making this onesie design any longer. The flag is made with a blue, red, and gold fabric. The design is ironed on and then stitched for extra durability.
"Available in size NB, 0-3 month, 3-6 month, 6-9 month, 12 month, and 18 month."
"Last winter I bought an antique letterpress (technically a sign press) at an antique store. I found a stack of antique atlases the very next day at an estate sale. I heard "You Can Go Your Own Way" on the radio on the way home and it was one of those giant light bulb moments.
"I had been painting on and with antique maps, atlases and globes for a few years, exploring direction (and my inherent lack thereof) and so this series of song lyrics about direction on antique atlas pages has been a neat addition to my more painterly work.
"This listing is for the letterpress print only. The photo of a letterpress print framed is just so you can see one framed. I also recently added a photo of letters laid out in my press and of the press itself as people had questions about my process that I didn't seem to be answering in a way that was helpful."

"This unique art piece is based off of the design of the Colorado state flag. The white in the flag (and piece) symbolizes Colorado's snow-capped mountains, the blue symbolizes Colorado's famous blue skies, the red symbolizes Colorado's red soil, and the yellow represents the clear view of the sun Coloradans enjoy being at such great elevation.
"This piece is made to order and is constructed from reclaimed wood. I reuse scrap materials to create all of my art pieces. I acquire my materials from sources that are throwing out or burning them. I salvage the materials and attempt to recycle them and make them into something beautiful. I believe in sustainable art and nurturing a sustainable world."
"This colorful living room centerpiece of the Colorado state flag is made from a second-hand coffee table, salvaged bottle caps, and tile grout."
