I've tried and tried but I am not a jewellery guy. At the end of the day, I fiddle with it too much and don't find it suits me. I've not had much, but dabbled in Starlingear, Steel Flame, and One Too Many.

Everyone knows spot on silver is around $30 an ounce, right?  I'm with Injun on this one. Some of the silver goods prices are border line insulting.   >:(

FYI, this is my OPINION, so I don't want any crying over this comment.

Why are you buying $500 IH jeans when you can buy $40 wranglers at Walmart. Same situation. :) Products made by a craftsman (or craftswoman) will always cost more than those made by an unskilled factory labourer.

Whatever.  Don't compare Fords/Ferraris and IH/Wrangler. I get craftsmanship, but the mark up is a little high.  You'll never convince me otherwise. :-X

Yeah, I read that, but I'm pretty sure the quality Ferrari uses is much better than a Ford. It's a pretty vague statement considering Ford Shelby's go for serious cash too.  I like how everyone justifies the price hike. Enjoy that.

It was meant to be vague.  Because everything subjective is....

I'm not providing justification for anybody, thats their own prerogative. I was making a simple statement about voting with your wallet. Your opinions are your own :) Not here to convince anyone of anything, just to enjoy the gear.


and Giles…Ford GT v Ferrari…. tough choices mate but what a good choice to have.  :-*

I can't wear jewelry. Every time I do, it feels like it shouldn't be there.

what you mainly pay for is the craftsmanship and time to create....

Fully agree.

Watching an Eric Clapton interview and noticed this. I believe it is The Flat Head's feather ring.

Best screen grabs I could do.

Would make sense- Clapton is an Iron Heart customer, wouldn't surprise me if Giles sold him some Flat Head gear, too.
