I fucking love you keychain

It was one of my first designs in my FYeahJewelry Etsy shop: a handmade copper I fucking love you keychain.

For a long time, it was a bestseller. I don’t know how anyone found it. It is the kind of thing I would never know to search for! But then something changed. Etsy changed, search ads changed – but I was slow to change, and my I fucking love you keychain stopped selling.

I decided to look into it. There were things I could do to improve my ranking in search results – the most exciting one being that I could now spell fuck correctly! When I started FYeah back in the day, visible profanity in search results was taboo. Etsy required images and titles to be censored. But somewhere along the line, that changed.

That makes me really fucking happy. I’ve never quite understood how f*ck or f-uck could be less offensive than fuck. Anyway, so I’m updating my listings and am excited to see what, if anything happens.

An ocean of I fucking love you keychains

The other big change I saw is that there are now a lot of fucking keychains on Etsy! Many of them say I fucking love you. But an equal number have a variation that frankly I do not like: “I love fucking you. I mean, I fucking love you.”

The spirit of FYeahJewelry has always been enthusiasm for what is real and true. There is nothing wrong with the sentiment I love fucking you (among consenting partners, that is). However. Pretending to love someone when you are using them – that fucking sucks. Gaslighting that someone into thinking that is just how the world works, see I’m just joking hahaha – that’s not fucking funny.

I’m in favor of free speech. People can make and sell whatever they like. But I don’t follow trends. I won’t make something just because someone will buy it. I mean, I hope people buy what I make because they fucking love it. But I have to love it, too. Otherwise, what’s the point in making it?

FYeahJewelry is meant to bring people together and celebrate what good and fucking true in life. That means there are some popular phrases you’ll never find in my shop, even if Etsy is full of them. But I do hope to bring my plain, sincerely enthusiastic I fucking love you keychain back on top , where it belongs.

metal clay is different than sheet metal

It is true that FYeah keychains are more expensive than some of the others available. That is because they are truly fucking handmade. Each one is kiln fired, and the entire creation process takes hours.

Compare that to the sheet metal version I banged out in less than two minutes for this photo. I have nothing against sheet metal. Sheet metal and metal stamping are great! But that medium is flat and uniform compared to metal clay’s quirkiness.

I think the results of metal clay are worth the time and effort. It is up to everyone else to decide what they prefer, and I’m glad there’s room for all of us. FYEAH!
