Hi Y'all,

Fun project. First set of "grillz". If I do a good job, apparently the Oakland Rapper community might be sending me a wide variety of high end "krunk" orders.

This specific case

Gold "grillz", after try-in, we may be asked to add rhinestones.

Dentist notes on patient request:
"Yo, My teeth gone, but make new ones be shining hard with great quality"

Maybe in time I will graduate to Prong Diamond and Diamond Sparkling Pave' designs. This is a new account. I need to see if the dentist pays before becomming a novice jewelry reseller.

did they dictate their budget for these new toofs? or did they agree on a quote and mockup?

I quoted reasonable pricing when he called over, mostly because it sounded like a fun market to get my foot into. Dentist balked on having a credit card on file, but has agreed to do COD. My driver returned after delivery with a dirty envelope with 6 tattered benjamins. The bank took the money, so far so good.

Thanks. IIRC, when I was a lurker I vaguely remember a New Yorker based tech posted some awesome designs in this field. Any suggestions on a tech out there with experience in this field doing any of the following: extended fangs, custom diamonds, cubic zirconia, gemstones, etc.....

Shame on you. You should refuse to do work like this. Youre helping to promote stupidity and thug mentality.

To be the devil's advocate (and also a white woman who shouldn't speak for black culture) I took a black literature class in College, one of the themes of black lit--is for the black community celebrating and embracing the tradition of wearing gold, to celebrate African tribal tradition. The patient on the case was "Tyrone" I am assuming he is of African roots.

Well, the earliest know 'grillz' were I believe the Mayans drilling their teeth and sticking in jewels. The Filipinos liked to clad their teeth in gold to look like what their deity was believed to have. As far as 'blacks'...During slavery, the strongest, best males were sometimes given some care so they could function well and not die of abscess infections. The cheap copper teeth showed their 'value' among the others to the slave owners.
So I guess youre right. It a status symbol among the blacks.

People rarely know the historical reason for their actions.

Pants waists around thighs showing underwear
I'm a homosexual seeking a mate while incarcerated ------> I'm cool and cant run faster than a 3 year old without tripping.

weeping for Tamuz ---> Lent
Tiew's Day -----> Tuesday
Woden's Day ----> Wednesday
Proof a person had been given to the Druids from your home (the 'treat') -----> Jack 'o' lanterns

St Patricks Day:
Green worn by Catholics.
Red worn by Protestants in memory of the Celts killed.
Black worn by Celts in memory of their killed.

History is all around us, we just ignore a lot of it.
