I have permission from Cyan to sell these! What I'm still working on is the process for making them in small batches rather than one at a time. They're red brass (a copper-rich brass alloy) that I etch, then flame-patina, selectively remove the patina on the raised areas, and polish.

I'd like to know who's interested in buying them--not to take preorders, but to get a rough idea of how many to make. They'll be $45 for the "full package" (with an antique-looking leather cord and nifty locking magnetic clasp) or $25 for just the disc (for DIY projects, attaching to journals, costuming, etc, and I'm happy to drill some holes for attaching to jump rings--this is the way to go if you want to use your own chain instead of the leather cord).

These are 1.5 inches in diameter, which so far is the smallest that the detail still shows up well. I make no promises about trying to make them any smaller, but might be convinced if there's interest.

So if you're interested in having one of these, let me know! I'll post here again when they're actually available :)

Hmm, I'd be a little concerned about the soft metal getting dinged up in people's pockets (but maybe I'm just rough on my keychains?)

I'll look into other formats once necklace production is in full swing :)

Oh wow, that looks amazing. I would absolutely be interested in one of these, probably without the cord, and without the ring at the top if possible... Out of curiosity, is there a way to make it a bit bigger and/or thicker?

After the initial batch is out, I'll be looking into making larger ones--as big as 6" in diameter! The pricing will be a bit different as I'll be using thicker metal and will need to have a friend with a waterjet cut the circles rather than being able to order blank discs from a supplier. I'll post when I'm set up to take orders for "replica" discs too :)

Ooh awesome to hear you got permission to sell these. Put me on the list for a "full package". I've said it on deviantart a few times now but I hope you'll be able to make some larger versions of these in the not too distant future also (perhaps 5 or 6 inch in size)

Great work. I love it :-)

***edit*** looks like a posted at the same time. Great to hear you're looking into doing the larger ones. Can't wait.
