I’m a regular reader of Boing Boing, and author Cory Doctorow posted a picture of a handcrafted squid ring sent in by a fan.
He was sent a beautiful prototype. If you’re a Jule’s Verne-aphile you will probably fall dead when you see the actual ring’s asking price of $1195! However, I’m in awe of crafty people who can make stunning curios like this. They’re so mythical in a 3D printer and post-industrial world. The Etsy store Gin and Butterflies specializes in wedding rings. It’s likely I’ll never get married, but I’d wear this because it’s just so friggin’ stellar. I can only hope a fan sends me some neat swag like this. I’d love a ring with insect inspired details….just putting feelers out there.
Alright, back to editing. This book ain’t going to edit itself.
