I was just about to suggest that! Making your own pick for someone else isnt really a good idea because they have to be a uniform thickness with the correct shape, bendability etc etc etc. Post pics when you're done.... I might make a few pics for my boy too...

The post that kellygreen9 wrote, didn't that have to do with making one? I clicked the link and read a little bit, but I'm not sure if I hurried too fast or not..but wasn't it so you could make your own pick out of clay??

That'd be an option! Orrr if there's some sort of tool you could buy somewhere that would engrave some silver picks, that'd work too.

PAINTING?! I dunno, you'd have to paint awfully small, and find some sort of paint that wouldn't scratch off..but that could work.

i made pics for my boyfriend and used fabric paint on plastic pics and as far as i know its still stuck on there

Yeah the thickness part scares me. And making it look right. His twin brother is VERY into music, and I don't want it to be seen as some sort of gag gift.. Smiley

As soon as I get my weaving loom, though, I'm making him a guitar strap.

I made my boy a guitar strap for his birthday back in October, and he said it was his favorite present ever and his friends were all into it too.  I embroidered a haunted forest scene onto a long strip of muslin and then backed it with some brown corduroy and made the fastener parts out of vinyl.  It cost less than $5 to make!

That is super cool!!!

I'm going to make him the strap, I think, for his birthday -- which is in January, and when I get to see him. I need some time to get used to my loom, too. Smiley

This is what I'm set on doing, now: I saw in the Oriental Trading Co. catalog a metal engraving tool, so maybe if I get that and some plain stainless steel picks (except I don't know what SIZE and THICKNESS!!! Any guitar players feel like helping me? Please?!), I could engrave my own stuff on them!

I need to make something for his twin brother, now. Because I'm already making something for his brother's wife - she's like my best friend. And I'm making something for Darrin.. So I definitely have to make his brother something. How about a box to put guitar picks? Is that too dumb?

I think a guitar pick box is a cute idea.  You could maybe start out with an altoids tin and make a decoupage collage on it.

Guess what? I was wrong. I didn't buy my ex-boyfriend's customized pick at the site I said I did in an earlier post (www.sterlingguitarpicks.com) I bought it at http://www.sterlingguitarpics.com/index.html I guess the difference of the K made me think it was there, haha. Even though I just looked at both of the websites and they pretty much look the same..with the same address and all, the prices are different, hmm.

I thought that the money I paid for the guitar pick was a great deal, but I'm pretty sure he only does the initials. So it wouldn't really help you out, but I just had to mention it.
