Blogfire Carnival - May 22, 2009

Great Gifts For Dad!

My jewelry shop doesn't have many gifts for men. I do sell unisex chokers, and have started with a new line of beaded key chains. The one on the top right (below) is mine. It's designed with small seed beads, using a tubular peyote stitch. There is a 1" silver ring, great for dad's house keys or car keys.


Here's a look at some other key chains you can find on ArtFire:

Top left: Yona also has southwestern keychains at her shop. I liked her "Beaded Elk Keychain," made with elk hide and czech beads.

Middle left: Lanza Creations uses aluminum links and silver rings

Bottom left: woodcraftsandcandles has the perfect keychain for the working man - a turned piece of wood for the body, that's really a compartment for two flat driver bits, a philips bit, and a scratch awl. Neat!

Bottom right: For a useful, photographic gift, Glass Identities takes a picture you send her and embosses it, making your keychain, or an id tag.

And in the middle, Horsewomann has a line of leather fobs, most have different designs stamped into them. This is one of my favorites, great for a dad in law enforcement... or from Texas.
