Q.
I would like to create a stick pin with a ruby style gem for a Foster Grandparents program's 40th anniversary. Any suggestions? We also have a few grandfathers that I would like to make a tie tack for.

A.
What a lovely gesture! There are silver and gold stick pins with a blank pad on the end that you can glue something onto, which should work perfectly for your idea. Consider adhering a ruby-colored Swarovski flat back, round crystal or ruby cabochon onto the pad of the stick pin and tie tack. It is recommended to use jeweler’s two-part epoxy for the most secure connection.
