Golden Snitch ring box
Corbs627 The pieces look great but they did not fit together quite right. Unlike the plastic shown in your video the metal does not spring back as easily after inserting the inner portion. The pieces were very loose and did not fit snugly. After fiddling with the pieces bending a bit and squeezing here and there about 30 mins I was able to get the pieces to fit in a way which I felt was acceptable. All in all I am pleased the snitch looks beautiful but I would reccomend working on the design for the metal pieces to make them fit better. The pins that hold the inner piece in place could also be a bit longer perhaps. I think most of the problem comes from the fact that the metal is not flexible like the plastic is.
Corbs627 I was able to find some photos online and the polished brass looked great. I have placed an order and am going to try attaching some wings. If it doesn't work out no big deal. Your design is amazing I can not wait to receive my snitch! Thank you!
Corbs627 In your opinion which metal is closest to the snitch from the movie? It is sometimes hard to tell with digital renderings. If I purchase plastic wings from another vendor do you think I would be able to get them to fit on your design? Not a deal breaker, just curious. Thanks.
Corbs627 I am thinking of getting a polished brass snitch ring holder. Do you sell wings that can be attached? What is standard time of shipping from time the order is placed? Thank you so much.
