Sadie!! They're beautiful. * I want one, I want one.* Those are BB heads and what kind of bodies? * I want one and I'll just butter her up a bit more.* Bottlecap jewelry is so special to me. What kind of caps are those? *Gee. I hope I haven't overdone it and scared her off.* Um. Save me one please?

Thanks, Ratty. (and Lucky!)
I will be sure to save one for you. I have just under 200 ready to go, so holding a few back for my favorite eplayans will not be a problem!
The bodies are soldering wire...easy to cut, easy to bend... The caps are various beers and sodas..I have a friend that works at a hipster coffee place that also serves bottled drinks...score!
You can have your choice of a necklace, a keychain, or a magnet...or all three if you want.

Lucky...I just may have to find you for a shot in the dark and break my no booze on playa rule...those are really great.

What! No booze on playa? You have booze off playa but not during the biggest bash of the year. Sadly I don't have booze at home. I refuse to drink at work. (In the bar after work.) So.....A big yes to booze on playa. If I'm not volunteering or sleeping I plan to be drinking. Cheers. I'll have any manner of lovely bottlecap thank you.

Wow Sadie and Jonsi those are both awesome.

I'm still trying to figure out what to make for this year.

Yeah, I am really not inspired this year....yet. I put a lot into last years' swag, hard to get all fired up after those. Something will strike me here....soon I hope. Can't seem to force creativity.

MGB Your swag last year was over the top. Thank you. This year put 2016&17 on them and take next year off.

How about this. HEY. Everybody that got a sparkly lanyard and pass last year from MGB needs to wear it this year and give him a big hug. There. Now you don't have to make anything.

I'm splitting this thread off from the old one from 3 years ago - thanks for the revival, Sadie, it's great to see some of the cool and clever stuff people are getting up to.

I've already got a pretty good idea of what I want to do, and in the months ahead I'll get the details worked out and start making stuff.

Raoul. No way. How do you do that? How does anyone make pendants? There are so many beautiful BM metal pendants, (like this one), and I haven't a clue how they do it. All I know is that there is no glue or sewing involved. Sweet

Thanks very much! It was fun to design. I had just gotten that outline of BRC tattooed on my arm, so I knew I wanted to include that. Looked at a bunch of Leonardo's drawings. I knew I wanted to go a different direction than the Vetruvian Man but wasn't quite sure until I saw the wings. I wish I could take credit for the actual production, but I ended up having to work with a company that has all the equipment to make them.

Here is something I am making to gift. Its a wooden whistle. The thought being if there is a white out when your are on the playa the whistle will tell others where you are.

I'd like to put a little Burning Man brand on the top if I can find someone to make me a brand.

I figure I will have a couple hundred of these done by August.

Making a brand for that could be a creative thing. You can make a template and paint, or you could possibly use some embosser letters/symbols. )'(

I was just sorting swag and looked up this thread. Some of my stuff is pieces of recycled discards. Some is sewn. All is funny. Of course I'm bringing all the leftovers from past years. (I love to find old, outdated stuff.) I guess it will be a surprise this year since most people didn''t show and tell.

Bring them by Hungry Hungry Hookers and brand them! We are at 6:30 between E and F If you want to do them all bring a can or two of propane as well since I generally don't bring that much extra. My brand is approximately 1.5" wide x 2" tall.

Thank you so much for your kind offer. I actually ended up using stencils and paint though I've had people ask if they were brands (before they touched them). Here is what they ended up looking like. This one is pine.

I'll try to stop by and see you anyway!!

All of your beautiful swag had truly inspired me! I worry I am out of time now... but I just found a community maker workshop area with a lazer cutter, I hope to try to get trained so I can use it to make stuff for next year:)

Ratty, I'll save you one of the BRC Division of Geology shotglasses. I still have about 30 left.

On the front is the Burningman logo and Black Rock City Division of Geology

On the reverse it reads, "VENI VIDI PERTUDI"

I might even fill it up for you with some Reubensesqe Bourbon (100 proof). from Montgomery County, MO. OMG it's good stuff.

All of our swag was lost in transit. The Post Office said they delivered it but it was never received. :( At least it was insured, but I don't think the company will be able to replace it before we leave.

Elderberry that's awful. The show will go on. That means next year you'll have this year's swag to distribute. Yesterday I beat my swag pile down to a manageable amount. Some 'Fuck You' nametags, 'do not drink' stickers (for pee bottles, not tea totallers), A couple of old designated driver pins and some homemade patches for the Meet & Greet last year. Oh, and long shoehorns. My gift is bulky. My swag is compact.
