We'll admit it - we had no idea such a small piece could be so complicated to develop. Laser welding, lost wax casting, oxidizing, Engraving, grinding, BUFFING, forging, polishing - all in a product around an inch long. 

This project originated when Neil blew an engine on the race track, He kept a piston on his workbench as a momento and decided to attempt a working piston keychain using the "forged carbon" process he'd developed for a consulting project. Integrating silver into the process raised this piece into the realm of fine jewelry.
