She Doesn’t Wear Jewelry…

What to get your friend who is young, adventurous and retiring…. but does not wear jewelry? Hmmm… well, some ladies local to me had this great idea that is taylor made for their friend: a keychain. She only carries her phone and her keys with her. Not even a purse. This keychain is in the shape of an S for her name. She plans on traveling so we incorporated the compass and it’s visible from either side. The stones are the birthstones of herself and family. The S is made from just huge 10 Gauge sterling silver so it’s very sturdy. I also made a J keychain a while ago and the person loved it because it would hang on things like the inside of her purse so she could find her keys easily. This S is the perfect shape for that as well.

I did have to anneal the metal often for it to take shape as it’s very thick. Enjoy the pics and I hope she enjoys her retirement!

Made this today…nice to get back to work after eating everything in site for a week. Back to the norm and it is good. It is 2013 and I have a pile of receipts/tax papers here for anyone who wants to enter them into the computer, eeekkkkkk!!!!!!!!! The paper stack is only about 6 inches tall.

I have lots to share though and will be doing so in the upcoming month. It’s time to make make make jewelry – get pics done and enter into shows – and get new marketing products made and make make make jewelry, I said that already.
