I join my sentiments with the rest when I say that I absolutely must have one.  Seems you may have hit on a remarkably profitable idea there!  I would also like a gold one with two diamonds as the goggle lenses, but chances are I will never find a woman who would think that was romantic.

You just found one  :D I think its a sweet idea


I'd love one as well please.

 I don't like rings.

 But I WANT that one.

 My wife is decidedly not Steampunk but she wants that ring too.

 We would like them in silver.

What if we made a pin besides the ring?  What subject would you choose, an image of goggles, a zeppelin?  Something else?  I know the pin you have for the Texas Steampunks in brass (you cut it in CNC didn't you?), but I guess I could work something out in foil-thickness in the silver PMC, say 5 grams, or 6 cm X 6 cm in construction paper thickness fairly quickly (I can't do bronze or copper PMC yet, because I need activated charcoal (?) in a kiln to drive away oxygen and impurities).  I just need to find a fast supplier of PMC; so far I only have the usual internet suspects, but it really busts my chops having to wait for days for a 6x6 sheet or a 20 gram package.  I don't know if there is an Austin supplier (Hobby Lobby / Michaels don't carry anything in precious metal, save silver plated jewelry findings).  Theoretically, I can even dip organic matter like plant leafs in PMC and turn out a copy in metal! (the organic matter burns away in the firing process).

 Oh, I didn't make that pin. That was all Professor Folderol's work.

 I just "dig" the simplistic yet detailed design of this ring.

Yeah I knew JJ Folderol made it; I meant "you plural" in English (as in Texas Steampunks), or "you'all" in Texan  ;)  Why not post a picture of the darn thing?  ;D

I would gladly pay for said ring!

Obvious interest here, and it should be made of brass. Tell us when it will be ready and how much it will cost.

Oh, I'd definitely think of getting one. What price would they run for, you think?

I dare say if these are to be made I shall take 2. One for me and another for the wife and if child sizes are made another set of 2 for the chibi.

Oh, good reminder. Nor can I. My skin breaks out horribly and burns. :/ Real brass might be alright.. not sure, though.

Yeah.... No brass for me either. The copper and I don't get along.
I'd rock a stainless steel one, or a gold one gladly! :)

Hmm. It's nickel that bothers me. Mostly fake metal, if that makes sense, and silver bother me. Stainless steal and platinum work, too. :P

I would love to have one as well!  What an awesome idea!  Do the instructions for the secret handshake come with it?  Or do I need to apply separately?

I think I have some smallish cabochons someplace, which makes me think I could fab one in silver with set stones for lenses. Hmm...

Not a good idea, trust me, it won't look that good, the lensen will bulge out, unless that's the look you're going for.

As for the silver idea, i would probably use PMC for that.

Oh and to answer your question, YEP....gimmie one too please !
