Money Clips

I just finished these two peek-a-boo money clips, and I think I'll be making quite a few more using different designs and stones. These clips are made from nickel- I could use silver, but the nickel has a better memory and won't bend out of shape as easily as silver. The stones I used for both clips are turquoise and they are set within a silver bezel. I added a satin texture to the surface. Once I got the clip to a perfect polish , although beautiful, it showed every finger print and smudge it encountered. The subtle texture helps to hide that.
These were fun to make, and it's about time I started making something that men can use...although women may start ditching their purses for these babies!

purses suck anyway. they are just another thing to forget and leave somewhere. (for me anyway!) maybe you will start a trend!!

You have such a great blog. I love your design style and enjoyed looking through your eye candy. I stumbled upon you at the JAN forum. I look forward to seeing what else you come up with.
