As some of you may know, I used to be a goldsmith in a previous life - my own business, a workshop, a signature stamp, the works. All that’s in the past now, but I still find myself in the possession of bits and bobs from my former stock, and seeing as a) I’m currently scrabbling well below the poverty line and b) it’d be really sad to melt these down for scraps, I am throwing the offer out to you dear Tumblr: please buy these rare examples of oddity-hum Fennoscandian design!
The Quarterpipe collection was my pride and joy, and I still have five rings of various sizes for offer. They are sterling 925 silver, absolutely hand made, as in rolled and hammered from a raw bar by yours truly. The rings are 4 to 5 mm wide (the larger ones being wider for esoteric design reasons) and an average of 3,5mm thick. The gimmick of the ring design is that they are flat and thick on one side - the one that’s all scratched up and shit - but the other side has been carved into a lovely, steep comfort curve. The ring is thick and stands out, but is surprisingly comfortable to wear.
The photo on the left shows a special, custom-made wedding band set I made for a lovely lady couple. This set was oxidised black and engraved. Please don’t ask me to engrave anything, that skill is way beyond me. I do still have some oxidising agent left, so making your ring murky-gray is definitely an option. I should however remind you that it’s never permanent and will definitely wear off during use. I should also remind you that as these are silver rings, they will also tarnish during use - faster for some, slower for others. Nothing a nice scrub with a polishing cloth can’t handle.
The sizes are:
- diameter in mm / circumference in mm / US size
- 16+ / 51 / 6-
- 16+ / 51 / 6-
- 19 / 60 / 9+
- 19,5 / 61 / 10-
- 20 / 63 / 10+
The original price for one ring hovered somewhere around 75€, but screw that, gimme 50€ and it’s yours. Please, I just want to find good homes for these relics of my former life. I will ship everywhere, shipping’s included too unless it turns out to be something insane, then we’ll talk, okay? Okay.
I think my PayPal still works for transactions. Email me at snrang@gmail com for …well, anything, really. And if you could reblog, that would be fucking awesome, man.
