Just a suggestion:

Is nuair a bhíonn mé ag cruthú a bhíonn mé mé féin.

It’s when I’m creating that I am myself.
That's great, a Bhríd, but I wonder if it will fit on a ring. (We need to know the character limit for the ring.) Is there any way to shorten it?

Nuair a bhíonn mé ag cruthú bíonn mé mé féin.

That's the shortest I can do. :D

That was the only reason I was using bím. ;)

What about:

Agus mé ag cruthú, bím mé féin "While I am creating, I am myself."

Or maybe we should just go for that old standard:

Bí dílis duit féin "Be true to yourself."

Still discussing ...

For the end of the sentence I'd rather use "is" : is mé mé féin.
Or I'd say something different from English: bím ar mo sháimhín só.

Ah, yes, bíonn mé mé féin is a TSF error. :facepalm:

bím ar mo sháimhín só
"I feel happy and at ease"

Nice expression! :good:
