I tried out the bow tutorial [link]

Black Cernit glued to a ring blank.
I gave this to a friend of mine who was going through a hard time. I told her that every time she looks at it she must remember this: this is a bow, and bows are usually on presents, So it is to remind you that every day is a gift from God. Presents usually have a lot of excitement and anticipation surrounding them. So remember that you have something to look forward to every day. God cares about you. You have a future and a hope. And then, It's black, and black is usually a 'bad' color, yet the ring is beautiful, so remember that there can be beauty in the dark times as well as the good times.
She's had 3 brain operations in 2 years, and as a result her short term memory was bad, so having a visual cue to help her remember meant more than anything I could say. And yes, next time I saw her she was wearing it and she could remember what I had told her
I don't know if that could encourage anyone out there. I hope so
