Purple Haze

Just finished John’s sugar’d up Big Voodoo skull ring.  I’ve done a ton of these and they’re all different.  This one is VERY different.  Why?  PURPLE EYES, dude.

Amethyst, actually.  John wanted to go a different route than my standard turquoise look and here ’tis.

I love the purple eyes, man.  Wasn’t sure at first, but the stones bring this Jimi Hendrix, Prince, Velvet Underground groove to it that I really, really like.

The sides of the ring have cherry blossoms on them and the back has some custom text.  Client supplied all the ideas.  Solid backed, as always.  Hollow skull ring fan?  Go elsewhere.

About the hollow-backed skullring thing……Yes, they’re lighter and YES, I suppose I can be convinced to make one if the money’s right.  But have you ever actually worn one?  They’re uncomfortable as shit.  That little pocket in the back collects hot air and moisture and just makes your finger freakin’ itch and swell.  I hate ’em.  Never would wear one.

My skull rings are solid, baby.  What’s the downside?  None.  Worried about weight?  Then maybe a giant silver skull ring isn’t the best thing to invest in.  Besides, these guys (and the new jupiter skull) are surprisingly light weight.

Got a couple of new Hellions on the bench right now too.  They’re in the tumbler right now, actually.

That Jupiter Skull isn’t ready quite yet, but it will be soon.  Stay tuned.

  1. Beautifully executed as usual.
    Big Vodoo is next on my list too. Little Vodoo btw has big attitude and has become one of my favourites.

    • I’m glad you dig it! Yeah, that Big Voodoo frame is probably my biggest seller. Really works best with gemstones or some other kind of custom work.
