So that's it, I'm done. I'm no longer working for that stupid fucking...

...anyways, let's move on.

I'm about to finalize a few pieces.

I need to find about four or five people that can do the following:

1. be willing to wear my jewelry.
2. be willing to be photographed wearing it.
3. write about wearing my jewelry.

i already have two people in line. i need three more. Or more than that if the demand is high enough.

Two renders of a spiky two-piece bracelet I designed. This piece is a definate nod to the more clumsier edgier punk rock style of the 80's. This would definately be cast as silver or a highly polished aluminum, with two rubber O rings stretched across the band for contrast.

I'm at the point now I think I might do a few hanging earrings, and a possible few organics, and then I'll be ready to start producing.

Good news! I got my materials sampler today and I'm very pleased. I can't believe how good the metals are. The transparent poly is neat, but it's not quite what I want, and I'm a little disappointed that the glass samples weren't included.

Anyways, I'm really only a few days away from production.

Now that I'm starting to memorize which buttons do what things, or at least where in the menus they are, I'm becoming much faster at this.

I also like the fact that these are coming out basically like I picture them, however certain happy accidents happen and I go for it.

The learning curve on this software was hard, like weeks hard, but I'm ending up results that are worth using.

I can't wait until I have a box of these physically in front of me.

Or I'll just skip to the "special design" thing I have in my head.

Well, these are done. They can be sent out to the lab for fabrication.

UNFORTUNATELY, I'm having some weird issue where my proofs come back as being either .5 cm or 5 meters across. And .5 is too small for anyone, and who wants to buy a 2000$ piercing shaped lawn ornament.

No seriously, who wants one?

Anyways, once I figure out that issue, I'll be able to get some prototypes made and sent my way. Of course I need to be very specific when I have them sent to me, because UPS still can't handle the fact that I live in an apartment, so I haven't even gotten the materials swatches.

Fuckers.

Anyways, I'm going to do one more set of plugs and spools (because they're fun), and then it's on to the next batch, which is going to be some rings and MAYBE some regular hoop earrings.

Then it's necklaces and bracelets.

Then I start making swords and machine guns. In case some game company is watching me, or something.

Mental note: start referring to them as "gauges" so that people know what I'm talking about.

The following images document the final beauty render for my very first ring design.









I did a render where it looked like it was done in jade, but I didn't want to mislead anyone into thinking this jewelry was going to be available in that. 

Tempting though.

Next piece is going to be an earring piece for someone with a very large gauge. I had one almost done, but in the last second, I hit the wrong button at the wrong time and destroyed it.

I'm already starting to get really fast at this. I'm pleased. 

stupid button. >:(
