I know I've been quiet for a while, but I've been lurking, listening to the brilliant ideas that come from some of you guys. And thus, I come seeking further light and knowledge. Let me explain:

I've made BIG orders from TRL. I've made teeny tiny orders from TRL. I live in the UK so shipping isn't pleasant if not quite as bad as Australia. Even with it being unpleasant, I've always found t ...

I too live in the UK and there are a few other shops that you can see, but inevitably they all source their product from TRL and just resell it over here (from what I can see of the ones I've tried). ...

The titanium I got from Ring Lords is 20% lighter and about 20% stronger than the stainless steel I work with. I've got Anodized bracelets using 24g that have stood up to over a year of abuse from my ...

It seems like argenteum silver is working out well for you, so I'm glad. When I do all my work in Argenteum, I never use snips to cut my rings. I end up using a jeweller's saw. It gives me flush cu ...
