I’ve always considered the core configuration for any true connoisseur of big, badass jewelry to be the ‘full right hand.’ That’s a big, solid ring and a big, solid bracelet. Drop that big skull ring on your middle or ring finger and then strap on a torque or a gotham bracelet. It’s classic and if I could only sell custom skull rings alongside custom bracelets, I would.
I’ve just finished up a cool pair.
This is a custom’d – out King Skull with japanese style carving throughout the shank and a kamon on the forehead. Natural jade eyes finish this one off and the client requested a gunmetal finish, which could not look more wicked. The torque took the finish too and it looks like a piece of iron.
I’ve had a few standard projects on the bench and some other custom jobs, but I’ve been trying to squeeze in a little R&R as well. My friend Maddie came out to visit all the way from New Zealand and she introduced me to Jade Absinthe 1901.
I’ve had absinthe before – kind of a regular thing for me during the Fall, but this 1901 is next-level stuff. I’m tossing out my old, crappy brands and diving head first into the Jade line. I’m kinda pissed at her for introducing me to this because this shit is expensive. Means I have to get that Leonids line out and to market a little sooner than I was thinking.
So yes, the Leonids are just about ready and, unfortunately, the first run is almost completely sold out. I’m going to have to get in touch with the mine and get some more stones, but yeah, I’ve presold nearly the entire first batch. More on those beauties soon.
