These pictures show both sides of the bead.  The idea is to wear the jewelry with DO IT TODAY showing in the morning. Once the goal is reached the bead is turned over to read I DID IT!

It took me two years to perfect imprinting on turquoise and mop.
The problem was that the imprint would just cscratch off. Now I have a durable finish that stands up.  For three weeks I have been carrying a turquoise stone in my pocket with coins & keys, and it has held up perfectly.

I like that!  If I didn't know that you actually engraved it into the stone, I would have thought it was photoshopped! Cheesy

turquoise is one of my favourite stones! Well it's my only favourite actually.
I love your affirmation beads. Can you share what you are doing with them?

They are amazing, what did you use to put the lettering on the beads and what is it coated with?

I would love to have a go at this myself Smiley
