A Special Piece of Jewelry

My beloved grandfather passed away 23 years ago. I was only 12 years old when this special person in my life died. However, this man taught me so many things during the few years I spent with him. My grandfather was also an accomplished guitarist. A few months ago, I visited the home he shared with my grandmother. While searching through his old belongings, I found a guitar pick. To keep the memory of my grandfather alive, I want to make a necklace out of this special token from my grandfather’s past. On this blog, you will discover how to make jewelry items from guitar picks.

Have You Thought Of Gifting Personalized Dog Tags This Christmas?

by Priscilla Gray

Are you already shopping for Christmas gifts? If you haven't started doing so, you might be thinking that it's time to make your shopping list and get your shopping done. After all, once Halloween and Thanksgiving are behind you, things will more than likely get pretty busy with Christmas festivities and other events. Engraved dog tag necklaces can be a great gift for friends and family members. Here are some ideas that might help you if you choose this gift option, including choosing the engraved wording. 

Selecting Personalized Engraved Dog Tags - If you're looking for unique gifts, personalized engraved dog tags will certainly fall under that category, right? Think about purchasing very affordable personalized engraved dog tag necklaces to use as stocking stuffers or for times when you need a "remembering you at Christmastime" type gift. You more than likely have people on your Christmas list that you would like to spend a little more on. If so, consider buying sterling silver or gold personalized engraved dog tags. Talk about a gift that will be used and treasured for a very long time! In fact, a gold or silver personalized dog tag will more than likely become a classic heirloom that will be passed on to his or her child or grandchild. Consider buying a different metal for the chain that will hold the dog tag. For example, if you have selected a sterling silver dog tag, consider buying a gold chain. By doing so, the recipient might feel more comfortable wearing the dog tag with both gold or silver jewelry, say a pair of sterling silver earrings. 

Selecting The Engraved Wording - Think of the fun you can have by selecting the wording for the dog tag necklaces. Besides choosing to simply put the recipient's name on the dog tag, think of other clever things you could select for the working. For example, if you are buying an engraved dog tag necklace for your sweetheart, you could write something like Doggone, I love you! If you're buying the engraved dog tag necklace for one of your children who is going to be headed to college soon, think of using words like, Remember Who You Are! Maybe you and your spouse have a secret word that conveys a private message, even something silly like Cuddlebug. Having that word engraved on a dog tag necklace will be a fun reminder of the special bond you share with each other.
