This ring is apx a size 5.5. I will be publishing other ring sizes, but if you need another size please let me know and I will create the right size for you to order.
Item shown in the pictures does have a bit of post production work on the surface. I sand and polish the ring after receipt from the printers which rectifies the pitting and any texture of the surface. If you order this item it will come straight from the machines at shapeways and might come with a slightly jagged surface that may need to be sanded smooth. I do offer this item in its post production glorification at my etsy shop. Contact me if you have questions.
This design features a cute little house that I designed to look like the stereotypical pre colonial house often chosen as a model for doll house constructions. There are details on all four sides of the house. Center of the house is open and you can peer into the house through the windows and the door. One side features cloud-like little bushes while the other side displays a jagged shape to represent grass. The attic space is also empty (going all the way through) so that this ring can be strung on a chain and worn as a necklace if desired. I also offer a necklace version of this design. I have a couple smaller ones too that I have yet to photograph. So check back for new designs soon.
I have always wanted a house or castle ring ever since I saw the episode of the x-files "Kaddish" which featured a golem that gave his wife a "temple ring" which is traditional in some judaic wedding practices and refers to the story of the testament of soloman. "It describes how Solomon was enabled to build the Temple by commanding demons by means of a magical ring entrusted to him by the Archangel Michael." Anyway, the ring in the xfiles was awesome...and this is one step toward making something similar. More elaborate architectural structures coming soon.
I have a house necklace available too. http://www.shapeways.com/model/749751/house-necklace.html
