    Since my last post, I have been busy with other things and have done a few more tags similar to the ones I have posted already. However, I have been experimenting more with copper etching. I have letter and number stamps as well as the fleur de lis stamp, but wanted to do more. So here is my latest tag using both stamps and etching. I think this is my new favorite. The etching is getting better with the more I do.

    So the basic shaping free hand with a bench grinder I have gotten a handle on...next I think I better practice letter spacing and placement. Maybe after that I'll think about trying to get fancy like you boys....

    A birthday present for my 15 year old daughter. I hope the cross will protect her always.

    Thanks Bubba.

    Apparently it is a hit. She wore it to school both days since I gave it to her, and she said her friends really liked it.

    When multiple 15 year old girls approve, you got it licked. :)

    Very cool! Am I right thinking that you ground down the surface to get the end effect?

    I recently make necklace for my son, a simple shield with his initials and a cross. Well, as 13 year old kids do, he went to school and showed it to his friend.

    He came home that night and told me that his friend really wanted one. I figured what the heck, anytime you can get a 13 year old boy interested in wearing a cross, you should capitalize on the interest.

    So I made one for his friend, a slightly different shape, but the same basic idea. Well, they both showed it to another friend, and so I have another one to make....

    Here is the one that I am sending to school with him tomorrow for his friend. Maybe if I cover all of his friends with shield/cross necklaces the group will stay out of trouble through high school....gonna need bigger medals....
