Most of my designs are created from imagination
However sometimes the source is actually simply a real thing.
This is the case for our classic 3/4 skull ^& cross bones ring
He replied in what sounded like very ancient English and very, very gravelly low voice,something along these lines:
"Ho! you don't want to know, really bad things happened here!"
My friends and I looked at each other , as we were all very surprised at his sudden apparition, and even more so with his strange reply.
When we turned back towards him , He was no longer there
None of us saw him walk away...Make want you want of this....
This is 100% true story,
Anyway back to the skull ring. As we were walking among the tombstones I stepped on a raised stone: It was covered in mud.
With a wooden stick I took the mud off and it was a stone carving of the skull and bones. I was compelled to recreate that design
We later found out the place was West Wycombe
HELL FIRE CLUB!
