    Do dragons count as a Hallowe'en theme?

    If so, here's my dragon kilt pin, assembled from about six types of wax and a variety of wax techniques, then cast.

    If dragons aren't spooky enough, here's a pair of skull cufflinks, originally designed as a gift for my brother in law. Again, I was working in wax. They feature my attempt at designing an integral post and back section for a one piece cufflink.

    I don't see why not... Both pieces look intriguing - any chance of some higher res pictures?

    Hopefully these have more detail, though they seem to be over 1MB when uploaded and then about 14 to 50KB when uploaded.
    If you click on the pictures, they come up in a bigger pop up.
    I've also included an image of the original wax.

    I like those Alison! The wax work on the dragon looks like it took a lot of time and a very steady hand!

    Default Ruby Eyed Skull

    October/Halloween is by far my most favorite time of year!

    I made this pinky ring for my girlfriend on Oct 1st and rushed it over that night.

    This is my first attempt at flush setting and patina. Messy and tool-marks galore but I hit my deadline! I was going for a more cartoonish/gravestone skull like the colonial ones I see here in Boston. The eyes are rubies. The shank is made of "bones"
