Sterling tie bar

I've tried to come up with something I can make for men who don't wear jewelry but haven't had much success until now.  I think the tie bar might be a winner.

This is a simple design but I love the idea of personalizing these for gifts.  This one is for Lowell; he doesn't wear jewelry or need a tie bar often but I wanted to make him something he could wear on those days to give him a little boost.



The other nice thing about the tie bar is that I can personalize the front and also put a short hidden message detail on the back.  

I've started another one for a special occasion that will have a stone setting on the front - I'm excited to see how it turns out!
