We had a poll and you all wanted a cool one piece next correct?
Bathgate will be done mid next week. Should have the new top the week after!
Big week this week! Tomorrow morning we launch our 6th crowdfunding project on Indiegogo called Billetspin Spheres! Then we will be releasing the next top which will be one piece and offered in a variety of materials and finishes. Those of you that ordered Rings from our website, we are making them now and should be caught up on orders I a little over a week! Lastly we will be finishing up the last of the Bathgate tops. I am a bit behind due to being ill but hopefully am doing better tomorrow morning. So who’s ready?!
Auction: Sight unseen prototype for this new one piece top. Will come with a COA. Might stink, might be similar to finished design, might be totally different might be identical. Your risk. I will let the auction run until I get the prototype done. NO minimum bid increment. No need for anti-snipe since nobody knows when this will end. Could be today, could be tomorrow, could be friday. All depends on how it goes. It will be one piece for sure. Winner will pay with paypal, immediate payment will be required. Lets not get crazy on this one, just have some fun with it. Wish me luck!

Auction is over, here is the prototype. It will be the ONLY one of these made from timascus. I am making the collar a full circle rather than the flat that is on this one. The ruby ball in the stem is non-functional. The hole was oversize so I epoxied the ruby in. Congrats Cris Tarr and I hope you like it! I will send this out today with a COA.
Here we is! The final version!!
I want to call it fat boy but I probably wont lol

Torus spin vid!
look at the reflection in the spin base at the very start of the vid. LOVE that
Flamed SS, SS and bronze
I dont use exotics on a one piece top because the material cost would be astronomical.
it would cost so much. For example, Damascus would be around $250 and that is just too much for a one piece top
copper is 52 grams
SS is 46grams
