I finally settled on a Shakespeare quote for this sterling bangle that I made last week. It is from "Hamlet".
Doubt thou the stars are fire;
Doubt that the sun doth move;
Doubt truth to be a liar;
But never doubt I love.
Shakespeare is such a great writer, and I'm learning to appreciate his work only after my high school required readings.
Extra time was spent in truing up all the surfaces so it can have clean crisp lines. The corners are rounded off slightly for comfort. I've signed and dated the year on the inside. All surfaces have a high polish. Actually, the high reflectivity made it quite a challenge to photograph.
I hope a Shakepeare fan will buy this bracelet from my etsy store.
3/31/09 Update - This bracelet is on it's way to a happy home. Yay! Upon request, I can make another one with the same or an entirely different quote. Check out my store listing for more detail.
5/21/09: Here's a customer's feedback - "I'm extremely happy with my purchase. As I write this, I'm deployed in Iraq, and the gift I bought my wife through Studio618 brought tears to her eyes. If that's not good work, I don't know what is. Doing business with you was a pleasure, and I'll make sure to visit your store again. Thanks for bringing a smile to my wife's face."
