I am NOT looking to buy wholesale, I am NOT looking for gold, I am NOT looking for silver, I am NOT looking for titanium, I am NOT looking for platinum.
I am looking for someone to duplicate/create/design/make an exact replica of a necklace I have out of stainless steel. It holds my dad's ashes and polishing is busy work that produces mediocre results. I want stainless steel. This necklace hasn't left my neck in 6 years and looks like junk now. I have stainless steel rings that haven't been polished, maintained or upkept in over a decade and still look like the day I bought them.

Hi all, I am working on a project and have to connect two thin pcs of 18 ga stainless steel together. the two pcs shown sit on top of one another to create a layered piece. I was originally going to secure the pieces to the base with fasteners, but the "stem" is only 3/32-1/8" wide in some places(which is where I would have to drill through to catch both pieces) and Im worried that my punch and drill skills might not be up to snuff for this.

Hi all, just finished installing a sculpture up in Yankton, SD called Ripple Affect. It was for an annual call and was themed around the river that runs right by the town. This was the first project that I modeled in Rhino, and it still amazes me how much the setting affects the look of the sculpture. I was "large" in my shop, but looks tiny in the setting with the large trees. I definitely would have made this piece 2-3 times bigger if this was it's permanent home. Aside from making it bigger, I think the only thing i might have done differently would have been to stretch the rings out laterally, so there was more of a horizontal plane, but who knows. I'm always so critical right after a piece is done. The stems are made from mild steel with a rust patina, and the rings from 16ga stainless. I used a flapper disc finish making big loops around the ring so that the different passes would reflect the light differently adding to the effect of the water rippling out, it worked well, but you can't really see it in these picts.
