I recently got test Jewelery I've been designing. They are all in plastic, as the approval process for Metal is very long, but they look pretty cool. Here's some pic's:

I painted smaller of the two Dragon Head Pendents in Silver Acrylic, just to get an idea of what steel might look like. Of course, Steel will be brighter and more satiny looking.

The side looks a little thick, a bit silly, but these are designed to hang from a necklace, so I don't think it detracts much from them.

The backs are hollow, to save cost.

This is the unpainted version of the Ring of Souls:

This is after a healthy helping of Silver and Black paint was added. I was hoping to mimic the appearance of Silver, but the results weren't as good as I had hoped. The rough nature of WSF plastic makes the details harder to see:

It's a thick ring, even on my thick fingers. Definitely a Men's ring!

I like this ring, and the dragon head. I think the ring of souls looks just great in your picture as is painted!

I agree, the ring of souls looks great, at a distance. Close I agree with you that it looks grainy.

Well, most people probably won't be looking at the ring from 6" away, unless I punched them in the face.... Laughing

But I am considering ring designs with larger detail, and maybe not so thick on the edges. I don't wear rings, so I can't be sure, but I think the sides might need to be thinner. I'd still order one in a heartbeat if I could get it in steel though!

I'm hoping to hear from from Joris soon about that.
