Due to the popularity of my original Wendy Brandes swear rings, I've designed three new multi-finger ring sets: OMG, LOLZ, and NYC.

If I produce these big, sterling-silver rings in New York City, I'd have to sell them for over $1,000 a set. F@#! I love to manufacture locally, but for this product, it's just too expensive. I need to produce the new rings overseas so I can sell them for a more reasonable $300 to $400 a set. Overseas factories demand large orders. I have to spend a minimum of $10,000 up front so that you, the customer, pay less down the road. That's why I'm taking pre-orders for the rings. Your pre-orders are essential to make these rings a reality. PLEASE NOTE: My original funding goal, which I have surpassed, was $7,000 for just the OMG and LOLZ rings. I added the NYC rings to the page, which means I need $3,000 more for a total of $10,000 to meet the factory minimum.

If you're more of a necklace person, or just happen to covet some of my other designs, you can order those instead via this page, and those funds will go towards the new ring designs. (Your choices are listed in the rewards column on the right side of this screen.) Or just donate! Any contribution is appreciated; the minimum is $5.

FREE SHIPPING ON ALL ORDERS!

See more photos of the rings and learn more about manufacturing challenges on my blog. Check out my complete jewelry line on my website. And let me know if you have any questions.

NOTE: All orders of existing inventory will be delivered as soon as funds clear Kickstarter -- approximately two weeks after the end of the fundraising effort. The OMG, NYC and LOLZ rings will be delivered between that date and the December holiday period, depending on when I can get the factory order started. I'll keep you informed of developments. If you need a piece for a particular date, let me know.
