Color me Lucky

I’ve been in Hong Kong for a few weeks but I’m back in the states and ready to finally finish the Evel Knievel ring.  This one is totally custom from a raw block of wax, so it’s slow going anyway, but I’m about ready to cast and it’s about damn time.

I’m real happy with how it’s going, but I’m a little concerned about the size.  This thing is going to be heavy.  The shank is well-balanced, but the Evel “V” is huge and thick.  I’ll have to get some client feedback on this bad boy before we decide if this is too much.


Everything is done but the stars.  They’re going to take a minute.  It’s not like I have a stamp or anything.  I’m hoping to finish up the wax this week, take a quick 2-day jaunt to visit Elvis in Memphis, and then cast this sucker.

Meanwhile, a quick shot of another finished Jupiter with the brushed finish.  This is quickly becoming my most popular piece along with the Tiki.
