LIMITED SERIES - Only 200 being released this year
*Marble Not Included - size to a marble in your collection
Amulets for you orbs! No more needing to carry your coveted mib in your pocket, leaving it prone to damage and scratches against keys. Or even worse, at home where no community can be bonded with it. Marbles not included.
7 years of carving knowledge has gone into the creation of these. After making many Orb Amulets one at a time from hand carved materials, from $300-$2,500, I'm pleased to announce I've created a version for everyone that also allows your marbles to be removed anytime and shown off, or swapped out. These have 3 stages of locking mechanisms (bayonet locking, neodymium magnets, and a weighted closing bail) and allow the user to release, and re-trap your favorite marbles with ease. Each comes in custom packaging with instructions on proper usage for longevity.
Make sure to rotate your marble within some calipers to find the widest section and use that as your size, some marbles as they are made by hand vary ever so slightly from one axis to another. If you're right on a .9 (27.9 for instance) you've got 2 choices, use that as your max for a solid fit, or choose that as your minimum for a little more jiggle and clicking. If you prefer extra jiggle and click, simple choose one size down, your marble will still be secure.
These are designed for smooth spherical marbles (99.9% of glass marbles), and are not recommended for faceted marbles, or marbles with grooved surfaces. Choose from 9 different sizes ranging from 19.9mm diameter marbles to 28.9mm diameter marbles.
Each is made with engineering level resin (extra strength), and is finalized by carving to ensure proper functionality, set with magnets, and then embellished by hand.
"Why resin and not metal?" : In short, out of respect for your marbles. The long answer is that this price point would not be attainable in any way with metal. To cast these in silver I would need to charge a minimum of $300 for each one. Additionally, metals, even precious metals like silver, will scratch glass!!! (Yikes!). This material is the perfect outcome that both serves as strong for longevity, and comfortably cradles your marbles to spin them all you want without any worries. It's the best of both worlds.
Italian Silver chains can be included for only an additional $30.
As each of these are brought to life in my workshop one at a time, please allow 3-4 weeks to ship, made in the order received.
Grab yours today to show off and play with your favorite marbles like you've never been able to before.
