when i put that into my sig, i thought that micro loans would change the world. my thought process has changed a little since then.

i think now that the best way to change the world is just to be a good person and to never be afraid to offer a person a hand up. everyone deserves a bit of respect and a little thoughtfulness.

be not a man of success, become a man of value.

oh, and pick out a cooler hat.

thanks, mike. i'm casting the ring a little later. decided to go from wax to metal then to mold. that'll let me clean up a little on a piece that's a little stronger that 2mm thick wax. i had it pop apart between the beaks. no big deal, just melt it back together on the bottom. i'lll smooth out the rough spot later. i hope these sell well. not too many shopping days until xmas!

thanks, ben, i hope you check back once in awhile.

thanks, sneaky. the master cast came out very poor. the metal i used wasn't well smelted and i'm sure it had a lot of impurities.

i had to make a mold of a cruddy cast and resculpt from wax. kind of like starting over from 3/4 of the way through.
