I love your stack!

Do you find it easy to use that lock with the rubber X links? I know it's not the easiest to use with the TB chain.

Yes, I usually use it on my rubber X bracelet/necklace.  I think it works great.  It won't fit on the TB chain without adding a jump ring--which I did to one of my bracelets, but still usually use it with my rubber X links.

Thanks! I had pretty much dropped it off my wish list, but now I might have to rethink it as an X lock Laughing

Definitely not an Irish tradition--no idea where the idea of turning beer green for St. Patrick's day came from--probably someone at a bar trying to market their establishment for the holiday. One drop of green food coloring and voila green beer appears Laughing Laughing

OK, so I had to look it up...from the internet--which we all know is always correct...

Green beer is the delicious treat that many drink (and drink and drink) on Saint Patrick's Day. But the most colorful beer is not an Irish tradition: it's an American-born innovation that requires a lot of moxie and a little blue food coloring.

This is how it came to be one of our greatest traditions involving food coloring.

The origins of St. Patrick's Day's green beer

Regardless of who invented it, the first people to make green beer probably made it the same, slightly unintuitive way it's made today: a mixture of beer and blue food coloring (the blue mixes with the natural yellow of the beer to make green).

Generally, the drink is credited to Professor Thomas H. Curtin, a physician who made green beer for his clubhouse in New York. Curtin's green beer was around as early as 1914, but other green beers appeared at the same time or slightly earlier.

In 1910, the Spokane Press used a headline to shout, "Green Beer Be Jabbers!" ("be jabbers" is an excited swear). According to the paper, the First Avenue Bar served the beer to patriotic Irishmen and anybody else who wanted to drink a green brew....

It continues...

I do love it. I wish it was fully compatible with all bracelets. I thought of adding a ring to my leather so it will work...maybe I would actually wear my leather....
