Would anyone be interested

In handmade metal Blythe pull rings? Please ignore the ugly spots of tarnish on the bronze... I will not be casting in that metal any more.

 

These were hand-carved, cast and then hand-finished to a shine. (please look at other photos for in-depth descriptions of my journey)

 

The traditional-style pull rings have a bevelled edge.

I can get these cast in brass or sterling silver (much dearer in cost). If no one's interested, I might just give up on this. It's not very economical unless I order more than 10 at once... but there is a very nice weight to them and they're so pretty! (to me anyways)

 

Large bevelled pull ring 7.8 grams (bronze)

Small bevelled pull ring 5.8 grams (bronze)

Teardrop 9.1 grams (brass)

I suspect brass is a tad bit heavier/denser than bronze.
