PCFC: Jewellery Inspired

Hi girls!

Today's Purple Crumpet Fairy Challenge was Jewellery Inspired.

I'm not a huge jewellery wearer.. I have my every day earrings and two rings that I wear, and that's about it.  Necklaces bother the crap out of me since I can't handle anything touching the front of my neck so I steer clear of those ;)

I knew right away what I would do though.  Early last year my boyfriend went on a short deployment to Ireland, and brought me back a ring that I wear every day.  Just before he left we had started paperwork to become common law, so the government now considers him my husband, even though we're not really 'married', but what he brought back kind of just symbolizes our commitment to one another.

Anyway!  Less words, more pictures:

Can you guess what kind of ring it is?

Claddagh rings symbolize love, friendship and loyalty.  Now I realize I didn't do the hands but.. really, I'm no artist and this would have just turned out awful :P  I love it, and love what they mean, it never leaves my finger!

I used a small dotting tools for the hearts, and used one of the bundle monster plates for the crowns.

Essie: Feed Me
Barielle: Out-Grey-Geous (base)
OPI - Pink Friday (hearts)
OPI - Teenage Dream (over the hearts)
Sally Hansen Insta-Dri - Grape Escape (crown)
Essie: Good to Go

What's your favourite piece of jewellery?
