Thanks Ozium!  I am still debating on the size of the pearl on the disc portion.  I think I might go down in size, this is a 6mm.

I think they look perfect and would not change a thing!

All this talk about favors..I cannot wait until I get my first one!

I am picking up that usually these are "earned" in a manner, i.e tricks, goofing off, ect. Is that typically true?

I give my favors freely, mostly to people I've met and spoke with, also if we meet any RF members at faire.

I've also given favors to a couple of small children, when they've approached to ask if they could have their pictures taken with us.

Never asked anyone to do anything to get one, nor have any of my friends asked either us before giving one, or others to whom they gave favors.  Maybe it's a regional thing?

   Same here ;D.   I primarily give them to friends, favorite vendors and sometimes to a particularly hardworking minor cast member whom I might not know personally but is obviously going the extra mile to engage the patrons.  This is important to me, since I have attended a few faires where the primary cast members stayed in a group and barely spoke to anyone other than each other.  I acknowledge that this makes it easier for them to stay in character, and some actors are just too busy with complicated scenarios to spend much time playing with the crowd.
  That responsibility falls to the lesser players who bust their humps to make sure the paying customers feel like they are a part of the show.   I seek them out to let them know that I appreciate their work.

Hey look, I actually did something ahead of time. Here are my favors for this upcoming season. It's the Hebrew word for Life, "chai".

I tried my hand at my first tokens. A small shield in my colors. I'm thinking as a handout to kids in costume.

I third the idea. Of course that means I would need to think of something new to do since I took last year off. I try to make a different style each year plus I make one for Lady Helen and Sir Jim also. So in total I normally make 150 - 300 favors for the year so I think everyone sees why I took a year off.
