This one ring has been the funkiest of our orders.
Our friend shan is an avid collector of reptiles and arachnids.
His fascination for spiders has made him the first to breed the P Metallica spider in the Philippines.
We created a ring for him to celebrate this aptly named spider. A unique arachnid in a blue colour with
the name paying homage to one of our favourite bands Metallica.
