I have a series of drummer and guitarist rings that I have created for musicians. They can be seen at MusicianRings.com. As a drummer myself, I have really enjoyed creating the drum rings. I wanted to show off a bit with a higher level of detail, complexity and realism. I carved the wax “shell” and “rims” and cast them in yellow and white golds to best show contrast of the parts. They were sanded and soldered together. I hand fabricated the “lugs” from a slab of white gold and laser welded them in place. I hand florentine the “shell” in a random pattern to give a natural wood grain look and feel. Then I drilled holes in the rim and laser welded on the sixteen “tension rod” wires.
I can custom make any drum ring. Here is the Chad Smith Pearl Signature Series drum.
If you have any questions about having a ring made for you, contact me at the store, or visit the website for more details.
There is a cool story about every piece of jewelry. I can’t do a write up on all. I plan on keeping up with 4-5 posts a week.
