Stamped Personalized Copper Spinner Ring


You can place your order for this kind of a copper spinner ring here and let me know the ring size, and the words you want stamped on it in the "notes to seller" section. Price is $39 + $4 shipping & handling.



My friend Tammy makes the nicest spinner rings I have seen. She makes them in silver, gold-filled, copper, brass, mixed metal. She's the queen of spinner rings! If you look back several months into my blog, I had made a kind of a spinner ring...not really a spinner, but a fluted silver ring with another fitting roller textured ring on top that had a Tourmaline set in it. After seeing spinner rings by Tammy, I wanted to make some too. She helped me with very helpful instructions. Thank you Tammy! :-)))

So this is my version of spinner rings, 1/2" wide....of course, stamped all over with my favorite Kismet stamps! LOL! The words are (if you're wondering), "Whenever I want you, all I have to do, is dream...". Oh I can make up a neat little love story about my beloved so faaaaar away...and me pining for him and singing these words. But nah...no such interesting story. Mr. Beloved is happily sleeping with beloved baby, while I have my kid-free time here.

These words are from the song "All I Have To Do Is Dream" by The Everly Brothers. Its a beyoooootiful song! And the reason I stamped these words is because these were the words that were stuck in my mind when I was making this ring. Know how sometimes some songs just get stuck in your mind? Yeah that. But I didn't mind it, because its a lovely song. Here are the lyrics:

Drea-ea-ea-ea-eam, dream, dream, dream
Drea-ea-ea-ea-eam, dream, dream, dream
When I want you in my arms
When I want you and all your charms
Whenever I want you, all I have to do is
Drea-ea-ea-ea-eam, dream, dream, dream

When I feel blue in the night
And I need you to hold me tight
Whenever I want you, all I have to do is
Drea-ea-ea-ea-eam

I can make you mine, taste your lips of wine
Anytime night or day
Only trouble is, gee whiz
I'm dreamin' my life away

I need you so that I could die
I love you so and that is why
Whenever I want you, all I have to do is
Drea-ea-ea-ea-eam, dream, dream, dream
Drea-ea-ea-ea-eam

I can make you mine, taste your lips of wine
Anytime night or day
Only trouble is, gee whiz
I'm dreamin' my life away

I need you so that I could die
I love you so and that is why
Whenever I want you, all I have to do is
Drea-ea-ea-ea-eam, dream, dream, dream
Drea-ea-ea-ea-eam, dream, dream, dream

The spinner is made of 20 gauge copper wire which I have twisted and have inlaid silver solder in the twists. I must say it is a LOT of fun to wear this ring and keep spinning the spinner! Its quite addictive. LOL!

Next I am going to make this in silver and in brass...and find some other words to stamp all over it. Do you have any suggestions? These will be for sale on my Etsy store soon: http://PurpleflowerSwati.Etsy.com/

These rings make great personalized and meaningful gifts because you choose words that have special meaning to you or the person this ring is for.

What a beauty Swati:) I really love your tourmaline spinner as well. In fact, I think it is my favorite of any spinners I've seen!

Swati Nigam said...

Thank you Shuku for saying I'm an inspiration. I think we are all inspiring to each other. I love all the things you make! :-))

Shay, my partner in all things "evil", thank you for saying you like my Tourmaline spinner ring. I thought after a while it was boring. I guess I saw it too much :-P. I'm going now to my inbox to email you.

Shuku said...

Swati,

I'm definitely going to be posting the pictures! I just have to get them organised... Right now, at the ungodly hour of 3.30am, I'm...trying to hammer test hoop earrings from copper wire. I swear, it's an obsession to get them completely -round-! And now I've got spinner rings on the brain.

Swati Nigam said...

LOL! 3:30 am Shuku?? You surely are in a creative drive to be working at this time! I'm really happy for you!! Spinner rings on your brain? LOL!! Aren't they cool? And there are so many kinds of spinner rings. Totally cool! Can't wait to see yours!

Shuku said...

Swati, my creative streak chooses the -stupidest- times to pop up and say hullo, usually at oh, 3am or anything that will disrupt my sleep. ;) I think I just want a pair of hoop earrings badly enough!

Swati Nigam said...

I just emailed you some tips on the hoops Shuku. Let me know if it helps :-).

Shuku said...

Thank you so much Swati! I'll look eagerly for 'em tomorrow when they show up in the mailbox; evidently Gmail's being a little slow tonight.

Can't wait...

Swati Nigam said...

You're most welcome Shuku! I'd love to see your new hoops :-).

Tammy's Treasure Chest said...

I LOVE the spinning ring! It turned out great! I have stamped them on the inside but not outside yet. It's so much fun your way! YAY!
I hope you sell a ton of them. They have been pretty popular for me.

Swati Nigam said...

Tammy! :-)) I hope I can sell a lot of these...I just LOVED making these! The stamps are quite addictive. And the uppercase stamps are still so far away. I am number 313.

Shuku said...

I think cyberspace ate your email, Swati! Argh! Could you please resend? For some reason it didn't come through... hoops must be addictive. Had some thoughts as to what to do with them before falling asleep last night!

Swati Nigam said...

LOL! I'll send it again. Check your junk/spam folder too. Many times I find emails to me in those folders.

josephkam said...

Thought that ring was pretty! And I loved the song you talk about too!!

Swati Nigam said...

Thank you Joseph ;-). Have you heard this song? I used to think it was by Cliff Richards.

Penny said...

This is lovely Swati!!! Is it comfortable on, I always worry about how thick I can make a ring in case it too uncomfortable!!! A pic with it on a finger would be great!!!!

Swati Nigam said...

Hey Penny, so good to see you! :-) Yes, it is very comfortable on. I'll take a picture with it on the finger one of these days. Got a show coming up. After that :-).

Daniel said...

Are u still making this ring? Could u have it done by Mon., May 17? I need it for my anniversary! Thanks.

Swati said...

Hi Daniel! Yes, I can, provided you give me the information needed within a day or so. Do you want it in copper or silver? What size, what words? And where do you live? Email me at swati at fleurviolette.com. I am writing my email like this, so that automated junk email senders do not click on it :-).

You have made a good spinner ring.
