THE RIPLEY

A speculative kit that uses your body's digestive tract as manufacturing in order to create a VERY personal ring for your loved one.

Your body is a machine.  It produces materials, disposes of waste and physically changes object's structure.  This kit uses your body's ability to manufacture.

All the materials in the kit are organic and can be digested by the body.

The kit is named after the sci-fi alien from Dreamcatcher who killed its prey by ripping through their anus.

Be sure to consult your doctor before beginning the process.

HOW IT WORKS

The user digests edible abrasives, polishing, food coloring and a ring blank.  The manufacturing method is a retractive process on the ring.

1.) The abrasives

The ingested acidic juices and the hydrochloric acid found in the stomach will begin to break down the top layer of the ring.  This will expose the clear jewels underneath for coloring.

2.) ROCK TUMBLING IN THE ILIUM

Once the materials pass into the ilium, the acids will have been neutralized and the ring will begin its tumbling process.

3.) COLORING

Once the ring has been polished, the fecal matter will begin to harden, the dyes will color the jewels on the ring's surface.  Colors can vary tremendously.
