Ring-A-Day: Stinkie Ring

“YOUR AD HERE” should be the name of this ring, but stinkie is funnier. The ring is made from acetal, which is really strong crystalline plastic.

I can put your words on a ring. Keep it above the line if you can. In other words, no descenders (mostly in lower case letters like g j p q y). For example: if I put “stinky” on this ring, you would see “stinku” because the descender on the y would be hidden in the ring shank. ALL CAPS is easiest. You can also send a PDF of vector art with the font outlined. Acetal comes in black or white.

Ring-A-Day: Cracked Crystal Ring

Bending brass tubing around the ring mandrel was the hardest part of this ring. I put copper wire inside to prevent the tube from crimping, but didn’t lubricate it. A little graphite or oil would have made removing it much easier. The cracked crystal bead was chosen by my gemologically attracted wife. Her main criteria: Pretty, Shiny, Sparkly.
