Bells for personal adornment history


#1

My venture in casting bells started with a lady wanting me to create
thimbles. I created several thimbles for her. I made rubber molds of
the originals with the intent of selling additional thimbles.

The reproductions thimbles sat in my display case for quite a while.
One day, at a show, a lady wearing a Harley Davidson Jacket saw the
thimbles and asked if I could make them into bells. It seems bikers
like to put a bell on the cycle to ward off bad spirits. Why not I
said. It sounds like a good idea.

So now I make Thimbells which sell pretty well. Spelling is correct.
Thimbells.

I have added a photo of my thimbells on my blog.
