@mdonoso Ok, I ordered it for taking photos, but I didn't like it. TOO THIN! So, I redesigned it to be almost twice the thickness as per @mkeys request and will be reordering this new version soon as I finish some other things. When I get it in I'll take some photos.

@mkeys I completely redesigned it to be almost twice the thickness.

@mdonoso No, I do not. However, I was just about to make an order of my Silicon Innovations Of The Ages pendent for taking pictures and was wondering what else I should order with that. So, I'll order this one too with the order and post up some pictures.

Hi .... do you have photos of the printed ring?
February 11, 2014, 7:23 pm
@mkeys To get it in platinum you can order in frosted ultra detail plastic and then take that to a jeweler for casting. As for doing customizations, right now I am highly involved with other work. Perhaps by July or August I can work with you on that.

@Adela Oh, I thought that because it is hand polished that extra care would be used so as not to remove important intricate features of the design. Ok, I will remove the offer of premium silver from my designs until hand polishing arrives at a point where it is more skillfully applied.

@UniverseBecoming , @Adela : Would it be possible to make a larger/thicker (3x, 4x) size version but same inside diameter? Alternatively would it be possible to use a different material such as platinum? Are there engraving options?

@UniverseBecoming the customer has ordered this ring in Premium silver. Models in this material are highly hand polished to a "wet" sheen and look very shiny. Please keep that in mind when you’re designing fine details or only offer this model to be ordered in raw silver. I will make sure @mkeys gets compensated, however I am afraid complaints of this nature cannot be accepted. Thanks for understanding.

@mkeys No, the metal is not too soft. What happened was they polished it too much. They should get you fixed up with a refund or a replacement. :)

@UniverseBecoming : I just realized there's not any nostril holes either. I ordered silver as the metal, maybe it's too soft?

@mkeys Awww man! They left it in the polisher too long! :D Get your money back or have them make you a new one. Their email is Show them the picture and they will get you fixed up. :)

I placed my order on 1/13 and received the package on 1/31, not bad! It's a beautiful and simplistic design. The snakes eyes as shown in the description photo are not on the received product. I've attached a photo to illustrate. Overall I'm satisfied but a little bummed about the eyes. -Matt
