Sorry guys

Met with the caster on Monday this week.  First batch underway.  Prices to be revealled very soon.  They will be in english pewter (had to do this to comply with US import regs on metals etc which would have made them very pricy otherwise on a short run item) but can be ordered with real gold plate if preferred.

Thanks for your patience.

When you say first batch... I think from the interest so far you'll need some 200 of them Wink
And English pewter will look good I feel...

Very excited about this!  Do keep me in the loop as well.  I would be quite happy to acquire one (perhaps more - not sure if the rest of the family will want one as well).

I would hazard a guess that for the rest of the summer you will carrying around a small stash of these rings, no doubt Ill catch up with you at some point so I can try it on for size as i generally have a nightmare getting rings to fit well

Why am I always late to the party?

Yes please  - I would like to purchase one, and I would also like to be the Australian distributer (at no extra cost to Australian purchasers of course, merely act as the distribution point here to save on individual overseas postage costs for Australian purchasers). Please let me know what I can do to help with distribution across the globe, I have several steampunk events coming up this year that will provide ample opportunity for ring spreading.

Slight off topic deviation, dear Darkshines - I apologise if my inadvertent response to the issue of wearable rings caused any offence. To tell you the honest truth I wrote my reply then saw the last two words and realised I was open to rebuke, so I tried to close it with the 'well it's a blooming obvious double entendre so don't bother going there' type reply.

But people being people, we went there.

And unless someone pulls us back we would stay there.

So - back on thread. I am very keen to wear one of these fashionable rings and still assist with local distribution to the antipodean admirers if a bulk delivery to me helps to reduce individual postage costs on to them.

I hope you got your goat back, I used to have two goats, one was a British Alpine called 'Sally' and the other was a Saanen called 'Sam'. They were lovely pets, sort of like dogs you know...

Sorry - off topic again. Back to admiring Herr Doktor's ring.

 Oh no! Suddenly so do I Shocked. That's a penny I wish hadn't dropped. Dammit, even the shocked smiley is taunting me now...Does the memory ever fade?


 Back on topic...I am a size M or (when it's hot) N in rings and imagine I am not alone in having dinky fingers that the sizes being made might slip off. Just wondering if there are any jeweller types here who might be able to come up with a sympathetically designed ring-tightening device; I know there are ones commercially available but it would be a shame to use something that would detract from the details of the ring.

Dunno what it says about me, but that's where my mind went immediately...  Roll Eyes

Probably a good thing I wasn't looking at this thread when all that was going on, otherwise I'd probably have put more than just my foot in it.
