Royally obsessed.

About two months ago I started watching Major League Baseball. Lowell and Ben were really into it so in the spirit of being open to trying new things I gave it a shot.  In a very short period of time I became utterly entranced with it. I got to know the Kansas City Royals players, their positions, their little rituals when they are at bat. 

We've been going to games when we can and having a blast watching the Royals climb in the standings. 

Lowell has coached me through this, answering my questions and supporting  my undying devotion to Dyson. So I wanted to make him something with the Royals logo that he could use since he isn't much of a jewelry wearer. 

I pierced the KC logo in sterling and then did a Lakers "L" for another gift. 

I cut the large backgrounds from 18 gauge copper for a good contrast. 

Before I put the split rings on I added sterling rivets and a dark patina for more contrast.  I'm happy with how they turned out - there may be more of these in my future.
