Anyone can stay connected

After writing my latest Merry Go Round blog post at the end of May all on the topic of Networking, I was inspired to make a piece of jewelry that embodied all that we do nowadays to keep in touch with people and stay connected....whether that is through Facebook, Twitter, Blogs, emails, text messages, the phone... and countless other ways.



So I came up with "anyone can stay connected".  It's a bracelet - you can add charms to it if you like - but the closure/toggle is my little "anyone" figure - making the connection!  His arms are raised and go through the ring and keep the bracelet connected!!!



Hope you like him!  I think he's quite a sweet (and skinny!)  anyone!!!...arms up, ready to connect... He'd make a great gift for someone you want to stay connected to...


What's your favorite way of staying connected?

What a brilliant idea! You could probably do a good business making unique clasps like that for jewelry artisans who don't work in metal (those who do bead-work and the like).

And to answer your question, back in the day (in the years before E-mail and cell phones were part of our culture) I was an impulsive letter-writer. Even now, there is something about a hand-written letter that can't be captured in its electronic equivalent.

I *do* miss that...

That bracelet is so adorable.
I think Facebook is my favorite way of staying connected. Despite it's reputation of being evil, (how can a website with no personality be evil?) It's a good way of contacting annoying friends like me who never check their e-mail and is a lot more charismatic in writing then over the phone.
It is impossible to have a good conversation with me over the phone. I'll mostly be going, "Errr... um, yeaah."
This is your educational system at work, folks!

Hi Karen. You are so right - hand written letters are so special. I always delight on the rare occasion that I receive one. Glad you like my latest anyone!

Thanks for your lovely comments. I was so pleased when I made this little guy - he just made me smile and he makes a lovely comfortable bracelet. Glad you like him too.
