New One

Here's a new little tool I recently made. It's a dedicated bottle opener in titanium with multiple glowdots, and a single glosaic pin. This one is on the way to Rhode Island.

Multiglo Mosaic Mini Makemake

This one was custom ordered by a good friend in London. It's a titanium Mini Makemake with 7 varying sized glowdots on each side, and a single 1/8" mosaic pin.

A Mini Makemake Pair for the Guys at Steel Flame

Here are a couple of pieces I made up for my friends Derrick and Leonard at Steel Flame. Derrick is an amazingly talented artist that makes the finest jewelry around. Some of their items will be worn by Sylvester Stallone in his upcoming movie.
You can check out some of their stuff here:
And for the lighter side, there's Lucy Ann:
I'll post a pic of my Steel Flame goodies soon.

Titanium Deco Mini Makemake Trio

The top piece is the Mini Makemake in the reverse orientation. I'm really not sure what qualifies a prytool/bottleopener as either left or right-handed, so I'll just refer to it as RO.
The bottom piece has a 1/8" optic rod port near the lanyard hole. It's translucent, but I can actually read text through it. This is the first time I've done this or seen it done, and I think it turned out pretty neat. Each piece is entirely handmade from titanium, and features a unique combination of glowdots and mosaic pins, both on the obverse and reverse. When doing both sides, I normally drill all the way through the piece and then apply the glowstuff, giving the piece the same pattern on the front and back. With this group, the fronts and backs were done separately. It takes more time, since there are two drying/waiting times involved, but I think they turned out really nice. Thanks for looking!

Easter Tag with Glowsaics

Here are a few pics of a one of a kind titanium piece I made as an Easter gift for the daughter of a friend. On the reverse, I stamped an "M" for her name.
