A Quote Worth A Thousand Pictures

A friend of mine posted this quote by a Native American writer named Linda Hogan.  I found it myself wanting to find a way to carry the quote with me.  I then thought of trying to find a pendant that I could have the quote inscribed on, however I could not find a pendant or a bracelet that would hold the amount of text I needed engraved.  After much hunting I found this great pendant from Eve’s Addiction that is a little silver notebook with pages.  However after putting in all the text I needed I was looking at spending $200- $300 dollars!  I mulled over this dilemma for more than a couple days and went ahead and purchased the pendant and decided maybe I could teach myself to engrave the pendant with our dremel.  The pendant arrived in the mail, I was very pleased with the quality however I was now more concerned I wouldn’t be able to pull off engraving it myself.

And then it came to me.  Recently I’ve been working with a local company called Royal Awards.  They specialize in creating awards such as plaques and trophies, as well as signage and display mounting.  I decided to take this pendant in to see what they would say.  I’m so happy I thought of this because it looks wonderful and only cost me $50 for the engraving!  Reflecting on this process, I’m happy to have taken the time to think it all through to end up with results like this:

Quote from Linda Hogan, Native American writer: Walking, I am listening to a deeper way.  Suddenly all my ancestors are behind me.  Be still, they say.  Watch and listen. You are the results of the love of thousands.
