Closing Pin Necklace, bought or earned?

Recommended Posts

Anybody have any good places/people that they recommend for buying these from? I have been wanting to purchase one for my SIS, but haven't found the right one yet and no one up my way seems to make them...

I will be traveling to the farm and sebastian this winter, and I am sure I can find some stuff there, but if anyone has anyone/anyplace they recommend, I would love to check some out!

~sorry for the mini-hijack, but it seemed on topic!!! :)

i have a closing pin tattood on each wrist, life sized.........

when asked what they are, ive given every fake answer from fishooks, to electrical contactors (im an electrician), to west african fertility symbols, etc. etc.

its not worth explaining what a closing pin is to a non jumper
=)
gravity brings me down.........

What exactly are you looking for?

The links 'Twardo posted have some nice "jewlery" quality stuff, or I've seen some on beaded or macrame-style necklaces.

Mine is simply a real closing pin from the parts bin, hanging on a close-fitting stainless steel chain with a small ring to attact the pin to the chain. The chain was $10 at my local jewler. The pin was $2.50 IIRC.

A tandem student asked his TI why everybody had the same necklace on. The TI said, "Well a few years ago a bunch of our friends were killed in a plane crash. These are part of the plane we wear as a reminder of our friends."

Thank you airtwardo!

wolfriverjoe, i would love to find some hemp/choker ones. nothing with a lot of beads, a few with her colors ok, just simple but jewelryish (i don't think this is a word, but you get my point...:)



I saw the hemp choker ones (that's what they were, not really "macrame") at SDC (the Paraconcepts store). I looked, but they don't have them on the website.

Great Story, glad to see you are coming back stronger than ever and determined to make your dream a reality. That is fantastic bro. :)



You're welcome and thanks for posting this. I have always wondered what people truly thought of the little piece of metal. Especially well seasoned skydivers. I guess some feel that they are homosexual. That's odd. I don't even think a closing pin has a gender. B|

Like I'm sure you'll notice, some hang to the left, some to the right, some even point straight up! Mine's curved to the left... always been that way but she doesn't complain.
In every man's life he will be allotted one good woman and one good dog. That's all you get, so appreciate them while the time you have with them lasts.

I'd gladly pay NOT to wear one...



I can set up a PayPal if you want.

How much are we thinking?

$15 a day?



Cheaper than actually jumping... yea, go on then.



Awesome! This should cover my AFF in April! Thanks!
