great work Herr Doktor.

If cast it, you'll need to make it adjustable size some how.

Herr Doktor, slightly off thread, but have you considered making a cane head? I am sure you would make a first rate knob!


Oo, er, missus!!

I'm reminded of the dialogue from 'Blade II' when Blade shakes the hand of a representative of the vampires and says, surprised, "You're human!" to which the guy replies "Barely...I'm a lawyer"

But will there be an option for a hidden poison compartment?

If there is the Countess will probably want one, too. Very big on poisoner jewellery is the Countess.(she's not called Countess Cyanide for nothing!). Although she only wears silver.
Ah but this could have 2 compartments!!  :D lol

One for the poison...and one for the antidote?

One for the poison, and one for a different poison.

Nonsense.  He should cast them in a standard size (such as Men's size 12) and the rest of you can use spacers.

I would most definately be interested in one, but for some reason brass lasts only a short time when in contact with my skin. Silver for preference for me, or titanium  ;D

I too have this problem. I bought a silver ring whilst on holiday which was of a poor type of silver and after just a year it literally crumbled off my finger leaving just a green (copper?) stain behind.

Yes, I would love one!

Apparently Dok you passed over all these other wonderful design possibilities in favor of goggles. Really hard to believe.  markf

Please add my name to the long list of admirers who would like a copy of this example of your work. My preference for material would be silver or pewter, though I would be interested in purchasing regardless of the material.
As for size, I am sure that I can reshape a suitable digit to the appropriate size, I have most of the necessary tools and several digits to practise on if the need arises.
If it is possible to give consideration to Rob's suggestion, then please add my name to the list for pins in addition to the above request.
Thank you.

Here's a thought:  Make a version where just the goggles part is brass and the ring part is actually leather.  Not quire sure how to make the buckle functional, but give me some time to think on it, and I'm sure I can come up with something.

I have an ancient (professional jeweller) friend (as in years I've known her, not her age) with whom I swap ideas from time to time. I would be interested in laying out some r&d costs. I can broch the question with her if your not already sorting this.

I'm in the process of bribing her with Portland sea shells so she should be amenable. Should I get a costing done for you?

Make a second version of the ring with a loop on, so it could be used as a pendant, earrings, watch fob (yes please), charm on a steampunk charm bracelet etc. Probably too difficult to mount that design as cufflinks or a tie pin unless you alter it a bit. It could be used by those with sufficiently long hair to adorn a ponytail or droidlock, and keep it in place.

Body piercing jewellry? Hold on we are slipping into the sex toys thread....and back again.

This piece to me says more about steampunk than the alchemy range, it is simple, screams steampunk and stylish, whereas I find alchemy's stuff too obvious and busy, but that's just my taste.

By the way have you let on to your lady you are designing jewellry now?
