Crystal skulls, if you will. Wearable around one's neck as a pendant, or suitable for display. These are just a couple quick shots from my droid. I'll be making more and taking better pix soon Smile



This one is hollow, clear glass with a fumed 24k gold overlay which gives the pink and the Gold luster. the tungsten pick is through the holes where you'd put the chain if you were to wear it.



Clockwise from top: Clear, Blue reactive (it has swirls of color that don't show very well in this shot), heavy ridiculous silver fume which I cooked in to get this effect, and finally the last was coated in a powdered glass which is loaded with metal oxides. It has a rich, almost iridescent metallic sheen. All with a beautiful loop suitable immediate wear or display. They weight 3x as much as the hollow one of course.

Yanno, I haven't thought that far ahead. It's more complicated than just throwing a price out there. For example the color glass is WAY more expensive than the clear - $50-$95/LB for color vs $5/LB for clear. The skulls are 1.5" tall by 1" wide, and about 1/2" thick.

What would you legitimately pay retail for one? I include a black or brown rubber clasped cord with these when I sell 'em. Try to be fair and impartial. I'm curious.

Well I'm trying to put together a retail price... Think on it some?

In the meantime, I can hook you up with a good price, because you're you.

Got it today sir. Very cool. I almost didn't unwrap it when I saw the hand melted wax seal on the ribbon. Looks great!

Glad you like it. We're real big on packaging things nice - for exactly that reason... Although I wanted to use a plain wrapping paper decorated with our handmade skull and crossbones stamp - I got outvoted.

...and there's your crossbones, Neo.

So uh, did you find the little bonus I threw in? And could I sell those skulls for say, Fiddy? Or is that too much?

It was wrapped in a separate bit of bubblewrap. No wax seals just the goodie. Smile

That one is about as small as I make 'em, usually they're more like 1.5" diameter.

I have been black ops'ing Wink

In other news, that marble is like 1/2" to 3/4" in size (I didn't measure it but it's smallish for what I make), sort of a 'doodle' in glass if that makes any sense...

I can however, make more, somewhat larger ones if anyone would seriously be interested. In fact, I'll make 'em anyway, once I finish up the commission I'm working on. I'll post them when I have a few Smile

I got a little excited and put "I" instead of "A". ...'cause you know they're pretty close on the keyboard. ...I'm retarded. Razz

What I really want is a 1' shield orb atop a clear glass base with a differently colored, greyish GL, Phoenix, and Magnum flying around inside in a frozen dogfight scene, shooting super lasers at each other. Don't hurt me too bad with the quote price. Wink

Then you find a machine shop to make the leetle tiny molds, have them made and send them to me. I can, however, do the Shield orb, the base and maybe even sculpt you a ship... Wink A GL, of course. I may like the ship and keep it though...

I think having a shield orb would be cool as hell. The pyro, I'll believe when I see, but if you manage it, I'll take one of those too. Smile
