“Manly Stuff”

Description from EPBCornell: I've only made a couple of pieces of jewelry for men, both involving metal stamping words or verses in blanks I cut & punched from thick O-tempered (soft) sheet aluminum. One was a nearly 1" wide cuff with strong hidden magnetic closure wrapped in black leather with the large aluminum blank stamped with Romans 1:16 (this young man's favorite verse) curved & stitched to the leather with C-lon D thread two or 3 times around at each of 3 holes on each end. The other was two blanks, a vertical rectangle hanging in front of a blank shaped kind of like the Lowe's roof logo, the peaked part hidden behind the front rectangle blank so the two tags together made a fat cross. Hidden on the back blank behind the front blank were the words LOVE & FAITHFULNESS, as per Proverbs 3:3. The crossing blanks were strung by a jump ring off a simple ball chain like dog tags. That was a 13th birthday present for our pastor's son.
Here is a pick of some neutral things I think could make reasonably masculine jewelry for men, boys & tomboys, but no reason a woman wouldn't like them, too.

    Great job! I’ve been selling more ‘Uni-sex” jewelry lately. The really secure guys will wear some of the more interesting pieces. (:

    Super cool ideas for pieces men, teens, women can wear! I agree with Island Deb. Uni-sex pieces are very popular. Liz, that is such a thoughtful gift. I’ll bet your pastor’s son will like it!
