Let Him Carry His Personal Message

I've made necklaces, bracelets and rings...various items personalized with special words/names/quotes that I thought would appeal to men, but my husband has snubbed his nose at every piece until I came up with a money clip.

I made him one with his favorite quote by the very wise, very old and very green Yoda, "Do or do not, there is no try". I can't believe that he carries it everywhere and prefers it over his wallet. He's pared down what he carries to only a credit card, ID and some money. Click on this link to check it out: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=33194552

Ironic Isn't It?

I've just had one of those days!!! I had to make three hand stamped spinner rings before I got it right.

After making the first ring, I realized my customer wanted the large heart stamp instead of the small heart stamp. Ring #2 looked great, but my last couple of whacks to flare the ring froze the spinner in place. Finally, finally I got the stamping right and the ring still spins.

Talk about irony, I spent all last night and all day today making this ring with the inscription: Carpe Diem, Carpe Noctem!!! It most certainly did seize my day and seize my night.

After all that I love the way it came out...
