The Hurricane Ring...

This hurricane ring/pendant will be featured in the Etsy coop ad in the November 2008 Issue of Craft Magazine.

I am a native Floridian and I actually carved this ring while watching the weatherman map one of our three hurricanes in 2004 - Charley, Frances or Ivan. I can remember sitting with a piece of wax and a file and numbly playing with it in my fingers, when I looked down I had created the same hurricane symbol I was watching on TV!

I love this ring (you can also wear it as a pendant) not only because it is sleek, comfortable and modern but because it makes me pause and count my blessings. Thank you to everyone who has shared what this symbol means to them. I have been so touched by your personal stories. Please stay safe during Gustav, Hanna, Ike etc. etc. etc....
