  1. They’re great pieces to hold, if you ever get the chance. Very cool feeling… they look so strong, like metal, but feel so light and fragile. And the rings make the best slinky-tinkly-breakable noise when they rub together.


  2. I love these !!! They are so incredibly beautiful, for their fragility – yet makes me think of ships and anchors.. I would buy one in a nanosecond!! I hate that he breaks them, but I understand what he is doing, and admire it! Thanks, Boomer!
