This is a pretty cool ring. My only complaint is that it's not long enough for the fist to go all around your finger (my ring size is 6.5, so it's not like my finger is super big or anything), so you don't get the awesome effect of seeing Iron Man's face and fist together. The fist just ends up rubbing against your other fingers, all fisticuffs like.

I am so happy with the results of the dog tags Pete custom made for a Father's Day present for my husband. Pete is very talented and I would reccomend him and use him again in the future. Thanks for helping create a very original gift that will last a lifetime.

About

The Evolution of several years of dreaming, coming to fruition.

The idea for Efflora Jewelry Studio was born as a reaction to the combination and mixture of perfect ingredients. Ingredients that developed throughout a lifetime of work and play. Since childhood, as early as I can remember, I have been tinkering, designing, inventing, and creating things. My father had a workshop in our home where he repaired wind-up and battery operated antique toys. He was one of only a few in the world. This is where my mind and body practiced its development skills that would pave the path for my future. As I grew, my creations became more detailed and effective. Mechanisms, pencil drawing and even building elaborate snow creatures in the winter became important hobbies which allowed me to understand the complexities of objects and the difficulties of design. Having always been especially enamored with nature, largely credited to my grandfather William Moran, I began to explore design of the exterior environment. At age 14, I built my first pond. Having been told I could make a career out of doing these things I already loved, I knew what I wanted to become… a Landscape Architect.

College began and I met a great friend in class. After some months we decided to start a business together installing plants for some family and friends. We advanced over the course of the next ten years to projects of deeper complexity. The business was a great partnership for two young men to learn everything the industry had to offer. After receiving our degrees in Landscape Architecture, we decided that we both would cut ties and go our separate ways, but stay close friends. I remained in the industry several more years, learning all I could from various disciplines within construction. Once the challenge of my work had subsided, it became routine and less interesting. I feared becoming complacent and less passionate about my projects. This spawned the reemergence of an idea I had several years prior: Flower Jewelry. The concept in the past was laughed at, misunderstood, and brushed aside by nearly anyone I mentioned it to. The gravity of the idea pulled me through people’s obvious apprehension, since they could not see my vision. I knew verbal explanations could not convey my idea and I would have no choice but to physically make it. I knew little about women’s jewelry, but I did know construction and plants very intimately. I saw flower jewelry as an opportunity to make my mark on the world and introduce an entirely new product. Maybe I could inspire a new form of art, change the way people looked at plants, or even impact how people thought about creating beauty.

I made the tough decision to change my career and begin pursuing flower jewelry from a makeshift workshop. Trial and error became my sole instructor, aside from the occasional Youtube tutorial. Days, weeks, and months went by before I developed anything worthy of selling. The little I sold was reinvested towards materials and tools to develop a prototype. One day I conducted an experiment involving an azalea flower, water and a sponge. It would become the single most influential factor responsible for the design of our jewelry today.

The road I’ve traveled and the experiences I’ve gained along the way, have granted me the perfect ingredients to imagine and bring to life the business of Efflora Jewelry. I couldn’t be more excited, and am deeply grateful for all of my Kickstarter support. This is the beginning of something very special. I invite you to join us along for the ride. Thanks for visiting.
