Put a whole bag of goods in the mail tonight. Finished rings for Brian, Albert, and Matt.
First up was a Big Voodoo with a gunmetal brushed patina and silver teeth. I can’t wait to see this one after it’s been worn for a bit. Wicked. I love a good gunmetal skull ring. Feel like I should make myself one at some point.
Then I was able to finish up Albert’s Aztec ring.
This bad boy got a cool crackle-pattern around the eyes and that symbol Albert had sent me engraved on the forehead.
Every once and a while, I do a ring that’s hard to send away to its rightful owner and this was one of ’em. Made it easier that it has someone else’s name carved into the shank.
I was also able to get Brian’s Iron Cross Ring finished up. Came out like a dream. Glad to do a custom Little Voodoo again – especially one so classically customized. How can you go wrong with an iron cross?
Thing is, I fuckin’ forgot that Brian wanted to investigate a possible black patina on this one. Shit. I guess it’s because the ring looked so freakin’ great with the high polish and black cross. Well, I guess if he wants the patina, it’s on the house. Send ‘er on back, Brian, if you don’t dig the high polish. I wanted to keep this ring too…..
So having sold three perfectly good skull rings that I would have loved to have kept for myself, I decided to sooth myself by making a ring just for yours truly. Well…..at least for now. I’ll probably sell it when I wake up tomorrow and come to my senses.
And if this weren’t enough, I’ve got a whole new batch of skull rings coming up for that Hellions project. I’ve had a mold made of the master wax and now we’re on to the individual rings for the officers. Stay tuned: this one is going to be awesome.
