as always mr Whystler your work is amazing.

of them all i must say i prefer the swirl ring, interesting bands win me over plain rings with ornaments on.

are you going to PP them at all or leave them as is? i think the swirly ring would look good with only some of the swirls polished up and some left as they are, duel texture kind of thing

Hi there Tree and thankyou!

I'm not going to be polishing these rings in order to keep the price point down. I'm also actually quite fond of the novelty of the 3d printing texture. It has a warm and unique quality to it.

But that was a neat suggestion to polish certain lines of the swirly ring. hmm....

I'm going to be selling them during local christmas sales. I just have to get my butt into gear and create different sizes of each style before I make my big order.

Most of those rings are adjustable since there is a gap at the bottom of the ring, and it is thin enough to carefully apply pressure for slight bending.

So I'll be printing the sizes 5, 7, 9 and 11 of each style. Less of the 11, and more of the 7 since it is a common women's size.

Have you tried selling these in flea markets and such to see if it'll make you some $ so you don't have all that inventory and no sales?

funny guy! Wink

I have had a lot of interest on the photos of these rings from my facebook pages, so I'm going ahead and taking the risk of making an order. I think the price point is right, and it won't be too hard to sell these rings. I have been going to craft shows for over 15 years selling my pottery and art, so it's not a new venture for me Smile

I would be a little concerned wearing the Three Towers Ring...if I trip and fall, that thing looks like it could seriously puncture flesh!

Hey hey,

Just a heads up:

All of these rings, excepting the bauble ring, are now available using the co-creator to specify your ring size! Smile
