Here is the first jewelry casting I've ever done (in addition to the Sebastian ring I posted earlier today...I thought I'd split up the posts due to massive amounts of pictures  Tongue) The rings are shibuichi (a mixture of copper and silver) and the medals are bronze. This first guy was loosely inspired by Albrecht Durer's print of a rhino; I thought I needed a rhino head on my finger:

Here's an obelisk with what is (loosely) my initials in Egyptian hieroglyphs:

And here are two military medals from some imagined nautical mission I was on  Tongue

Yay for casting!

You love some dangerous jewelry!

The rhino ring is really cool, and I love the "Squid Patrol" medal (yeah, I'm sure it's an octopus, but "Squid Patrol" sounds so official).  Cheesy
