Potcake Jewelry

For almost a year now I have been playing around with metal stamping.  I do dog tags for our local humane society, Friends of Abaco Animals.
I have also done necklace charms, but the last few weeks I have been doing some bangles and bracelets, in an effort to build up some inventory.
"Potcake Love"
For those of you that don't know, "Potcakes" are the local mutt of the Bahamas.  Since I do animal rescue work I have a few of them.
The name came from the cake (the burnt rice) that was on the bottom of the pot when a local dish, peas and rice, was cooked and then thrown out for the dogs to eat.....get it?....POTCAKE!!
They are great dogs and are extremely smart.
The bangle above I made for myself so of course it is my favorite.  It is really difficult to photograph jewelry so I am not sure if you can tell there is a heart charm and a blue crystal hanging from the bangle as well.  If you click on the picture you can see a larger view.
Anyway...back to work to build up that inventory.......

Hey I know this post is a few years old but do you still make these Potcake Love bracelets? I would LOVE to buy one for my best friend who just rescued a potcake puppy.
