A couple of quick Skull Ring notes.
First, Tony Creed has a new site that looks pretty slick. Go visit him at superskull.com!
I love Tony’s stuff; my first skull ring was my ELVIS LIVES ‘riffman’. Tony’s still the original badass in the industry and his stuff is stil as cave-man-biker as ever.
Second,another favorite designer, MT Maloney, has just released this brillian, HUGE ring: the JUPITER:
MT’s awesome, and this is really a statement piece. He won’t even be offering this in small sizes; you need Big Old Man Hands to wear it.
I want it.
New ring from Speakeasy Original.
I love this piece.
“The Rabbit in the Moon” – a pendant made by my father. I just found this one while cleaning up my office. I still need to polish it up, but here it is as I found it.
Dad made a lot of things like this; it’s one of the things I miss about him; his abstract logician’s mind turned concrete in silver.
He made these out of old silver coins (a 1940’s Australian florin in this case). He said he learned the skill in the army; he was in the south pacific in WWII, and spent long, tedious hours on troop ships. Jewelry was one of the ways he passed the time, sitting on deck to catch cooling breezes, working with small hand drills and files to shape bits of silver coin (in the days when coins were still made of silver).
The image is of the Rabbit, pushing a wheelbarrow down a hill; my father used to say the wheelbarrow contains “books with pale blue covers, about the goodness of life”.
Miss you, Dad.
That’s the full collection, as of now. Instagram shots, so low res.
I’ll add tags with the individual details + links.
Someone just sent me a note via my contact page suggesting I check out a skull ring by Speakeasy Original.
If that was you, please, take credit.
Anyway, this caught my eye. Love it – the F-Bomb.
They have several other really good pieces, I recommend you check ’em out.
Here’s a new ring my friend MT Maloney just put up.
It’s a ‘caveman’ (australopithecus) skull.
It’s brilliant. I want it.
See it here.
The Motörhead rings in the front are my latest, from Great Frog.
Behind that are a several of my daily wear rings, from the MT Maloney, Deadringer, Tony Creed, Sinners inc, and Courts and Hackett – links are in the left side bar to all these.

Ok, it’s been way too long since I’ve been able to give link-love to my skull ring frineds – sorry guys, life has a way of giving us lemons, right?
I’ve finally started to get ’em in place again.
I can’t change the sort order, so it’s in the default alpha sort.
There are some still missing, I have to delve into the archives to get ’em all out, but if you see hits, let me know.
Again, apologies for dropping ’em, when I cut over to wordpress, thats’ one of the design elements that didn’t port.
More on this later, I have some new silver to post pix of.
Here are the ones I have live:
Chris Jercha of Guilded Splinters, skull ring by my friends Courts and Hackett.
