    VAN HALEN versus RICHIE BLACKMORE RAINBOW
    First of all I need to mention that this blog has got nothing to do with jewellery
    but if you are into CLASSIC ROCK music like myself
    you might be curious to find out what this is all about

    Let's assume  RAINBOW and VAN HALEN were playing
    on the same evening in your town ( both band in their prime circa 1979)

    Who would you choose.
    VAN HALEN

    Is DIO better than ROTH
    Is COZY better than ALEX
    Is RICHIE better than EDDIE

    YOU DECIDE
    Its only ROCK & ROLL

    DAVE STEWART -EURYTHMICS Bespoke jewellery
    Dave Steward has been a regular at Crazy Pig Designs for many years
    And we are proud to have made for him many bespoke pieces
    including his wedding rings.
    However here's a fairly simple silver ring that we made
    and he seems to be his favourite.
    He approach us with the idea of having the initials of each of his
    children on a ring.
    A fairly simple idea but we put some thought into it
    and came up with the ring shown here.

    Dave's children name are:
    DJANGO, KAYA, SAM and INDYA
    It was obvious that it spelled the word  KIDS
    How perfect!
    So we carved each of the first letters in 3D
    and placed them randomly on the front of a rough cut
    and chunky ring,Like carved out of stone.
    Sometimes its all about design.
    That is why we are CRAZY PIG DESIGNS

    SKULL RING DESIGNER CRAZY PIG LONDON
    Here's a skull related item that is becoming
    another CRAZY PIG DESIGNS classic.

    We originally made the spine bracelet shown here on the left.
    As soon as it was available customers asked for
    a more delicate one.
    So  we made another one. , shown in the middle.
    Although it is smaller there are more links per
    bracelet, so it is actually more work.
    But, guess what we still had other clients requesting   an even smaller one.
    Shown here on the right.
    So finally there is one for everyone,

    OZZY OSBOURNE Articulated ring by CRAZY PIG DESIGNS
    From very early on, even as far as my school days
    I have always been into BLACK SABBATH.
    Over the years I ve seen OZZY in concert with
    various line ups and privileged to hang around backstage.
    From the riff master TONI IOMMI, to RANDY RHOADS
    JAKE E LEE, and  ZAKK WYLDE .
    OZZY has always been the simply THE BEST!
    I was very honoured to be contacted by Sharon
    to create a few custom pieces from OZZ.
    Here's one of the cool pieces we made at CRAZY PIG DESIGNS
    All in solid 18 carat gold with rubies and diamonds
    articulated ring.

    MOTORHEAD ring /Original designs from the archives
    Digging through our vast archives of original designs
    we discoverd three original MOTORHEAD rings
    From Left to right......
    Left ring: This was the very first MOTORHEAD I carved for LEMMY
    back in the Eighties, Unfortunately LEMMY thought it was too bulky
    So I decide to keep it for myself and carve a second version
    Shown here in the Centre of the photo
    It is slightly smaller but LEMMY , again thought he rather have
    a much flatter version with a solid chain so he
    could put his hands in his pockets.
    Hence the third version shown here on the right.
    The first one of these went obviously to LEMMY
    Number two was made for PHILTHY and 3 & 4 for WURZEL and CAMPBELL
    I have kept number 5 as well asall  the original masters for myself.

    This rings show a lot of wear and tear caused by years of everyday wear
    Still! OLD SOLDIER NEVER DIES!
