David’s Snail Meat, a secret, and Elvis.

Sounds like the name of a grunge band.

David’s custom Big Voodoo has finished and shipped out to Singapore.  Bon Voyage.

Good for David.  Put the text right there on the outside of the shank like a champ.  Nothing more chicken-shit then doing your engraving INSIDE the fucking band where nobody can see it.  If it’s important enough to say, say it where people can actually SEE it.

Now that isn’t to say I’m totally against carving inside the shank.  Especially if there’s a little hidden gem reserved just for you, but this works best in addition to something on the outside.  Example of this would be that Ladybug ring I made for that badass Marine and his wife.

David got some of that going on too.  See below.

That’s not Free the Whales.  Love that.   Hope you dig it, David.

I’ve been working on some other projects as well.  I’ve got kind of a super secret thing going on that I’ll likely be able to announce later.  For now, all I can show you is a wax in progress for said mystery project.

Also put a dent in an Elvis tribute ring I’ve been dying to do for a while.  Kind of a take on the great Lowell Hays TCB ring.

That’s obviously not my style, but I love the concept and the overall shaping of this piece.  So I’m taking a different approach to this design.  I wouldn’t want to copy it anyway.  I’m just paying  tribute to the king and his jeweler.

So far this is all I got:

Doesn’t look like much yet, does it?  Screw.  That F’ing thing took me all goddamned morning.  Can’t really tell from the photograph, but I’ve tapered and sized the ring.  The top is still flat and square, but now I have to shape it to match the massive turquoise stone.   Stay tuned for more on this and my mystery project.
