Ideas and thoughts wanted.  Empty Ideas and thoughts wanted.

I am having a bit of a mind block at the minute. I do have several projects going on, but they are going to be slow and hopefully amazing once done.

So I am looking to you, and asking what would really interest you and what would you like to see me make.

Silly answers are welcome but I am looking for genuine answers.

Thank you all.

I'd like a silver (of course) Tangram, in a nice wooden tray.

Maybe some silver stacking bars or rounds with a simple but effective theme on them? Question is what theme?

What about a deck of cards? Starting with the Aces, naturally.

That is a great idea. It sounds like the stackable chess pieces. It would work very well

What about a series of 9 for the muses of ancient Greek mythology -

They were famous for getting rid of writer's block.

Let me give some direction.

I want something too be high relief, it could be a 2d or 3d design, but 2d would be more suitable for most.

I was looking at ensuring I could fit it in a already existing size capsule.

The person who helps will get a credit on the NEW COA I am working on. As I plan to make this a regular theme.

I want VERY low numbers and it must be affordable for most people. I don't charge a arm and legs for my pieces so why start now.

I am wanting the community here to be the inspiration. Be an extension of AceBullion to some degree.

NOTE.... if anyone does work, and I agree to them via messenger etc. I will pay for your services.

So if you make a Cad or Jpeg file, and it is used I will pay, I will also pay for the right COA for that project if someone is arty and can either design one or make them.
Heck in some cases I might want to pass the torch for woodworking onto someone else.

All my orders will be a small amount, but we all know that the design and and finishing touches are what make these things popular.

So 2024 ... what have you got TPMF?

It is NOT about AceBullion.... I want something Amazing.

OK then, what about a series of carnivorous plants. I admit that I do have a special interest here, and I don't know how they would sell generally, but they have the most amazing forms, and there are a number of different genera (sarracenia, nepenthes, cephalotus, dionaea, drosera, pinguicula, etc.). They could be done either as a round or as a bar, and made to fit a capsule - and it is possible to get double height capsules if you were going to go high relief.
Please don't do cats. They are very hard to get right, and the ones I've seen are almost always unattractive, either chocolate box cute or deformed. I like Intaglio and the Catastrophe series, but not much else really.

How about a silver chocolate/candy bar. Rectangular, 3d with high relief, and can fit into a rectangular capsule.

What about a round with a geometric pattern. You can put your logo and the year. So each year a different pattern and year.

another thought comes to mind for themes would be heraldic symbols (or has this been done to death?) or the county emblems of England.

Maybe a series of paw/foot/hoof prints of animals

or a series of elemental/chakra graphics?
