Alison Wonderland's sterling silver Fuck This Shit key ring is a funny gift idea for the sophisticated swear word aficionado in your life. (Perhaps one for yourself?)

I started making “fuck this shit” key rings as I was experiencing one strong emotion: frustration.
 
The specifics aren’t important now. But let's just say, there was a moment where it all just got to me. Who knows what tipped it over the edge -- endless snow, an idiot ex-spouse, job woes, cat puke?  I was overcome with…well, the shittier parts of life.
 
And I had a hammer.
 
This ended less ominously than it might have otherwise, since I’d just finished hand-stamping a birthday gift, which bore a rather sweeter sentiment than what I quickly pounded out on my bench block on a spare piece of metal that fateful afternoon.
 
First word: F-U-C-K  
 
If you’ve never hand-stamped metal, I highly recommend it for therapeutic purposes. The stamps are skinny square rods of steel, about two inches long, with a raised letter on the bottom, and a flat top. They resemble the black keys on a piano.
 
Working one letter at a time, you delicately, yet firmly balance a stamp on a piece of metal with three fingers of your non-dominant hand. With your other hand, squarely whack the hammer down on the stamp’s head.
 
 
Second word: T-H-I-S  
 
I was feeling better already. But I’ll confess that this sense of relief worried me a little.
 
After all, in a rare point of total agreement, every major spiritual tradition and modern psychology emphasizes the importance of gratitude and a positive mental attitude.
 
The phrase I was permanently pressing into metal at first seemed neither grateful nor particularly positive.
 
Third word: S-H-I-T

I flipped my hammer over, to use its ball peen – that’s the rounded part opposite its striking face – to create some texture around the three-word phrase.  Which is when I realized that even the most spiritually advanced among us would grant the wisdom of being exactly where you are. You can’t go directly from hammer-wielding frustration to a beatific smile.            
 
And what’s more, I’d argue that “fuck this shit” is actually a very positive sentiment. It’s a statement of spirit, of spunk, of hope. Fuck the bad shit in life, whatever it happens to be at the moment, and let's move on to something better, together.

Here are the details:

  • Your Fuck This Shit sterling silver key ring measures about one inch in diameter. It will not add much to your load.
  • It has a traditional split ring to carry your keys with style.
  • This piece is hand-made and hand-stamped, which means that it doesn’t look like a machine made it, because it didn’t. It's made to order, which means there will be variations in letter placement and so on. That's why you fucking like it.
  • You are buying one, (1), uno, un, ein sterling silver key ring. (Unless you order more than one.) My point is that while there are several key rings in some of the photos, this listing is for a single key chain.
  • The key chain ships in a tasteful black velvet gift pouch.
  • Studies show that people who curse are smarter than people who don't. People who swear in sterling silver are the most intelligent around.
