Hey Future Friends! A bunch of people have fallen in love with these little fennec fox rings since I started making them as gifts, so I figured I'd share the design here so you can have some cool foxy stuff too!
A little back story - my family are a family of foxes. As in, our family name is fox! So growing up I was surrounded by fox things, fox door knockers, foxes on christmas cards, foxes on keyrings, foxes everywhere. I really like these little guys. I feel like these rings have given me a great way to share something cool with friends, and give them something to remember me by. They're kind of like a business cards in a way, but more personal and a lot cooler! I put them up here at a super low price with the hope you buy a few and give them to friends so you have the same feeling!
The inner diameter of this ring is 16.2mm in the option shown here. If you'd like it in a different size, put through a custom order and I'll sort it out real quick. Just let me know your ring size (use this chart to convert to millimeters). If you're ordering the Strong and Flexible plastic (the cheapest option) don't worry too much about getting it super exact - these are made from Nylon and if you heat it up carefully with a flame it will soften so you can stretch it to adjust the shape. Don't put it in to the flame, just use the heat coming off the non-glowing part. Butane like a lighter will work best, and be careful not to make it too hot or it may get burnt. Don't use candles or you'll have a soot problem. If you need to make it smaller you can chop a section out, make the ends warm and gooey with a flame quickly, and bend the ends together. The other materials come as solid parts and cannot be adapted easily because they aren't thermoplastics, so they wont soften or melt, so make sure you get those sizes right!
If you have a home 3D printer, you can print them yourself using the thingiverse version.
And I have a special request: If you get some of these, can you post a selfie with it on instagram or twitter and tag me? I'm bluebiefox on insta and bluebie on twitter. I'd love to see all your cool faces!
