Hi everyone,

This is a shape mod that I just finished up. I call it the Silver Gem. It is made from a 4x4x4 Rubik's Brand Cube. All of the pieces are filled with Black Apoxie Sculpt. All of the stickers were hand cut (hopefully for the last time :) ) with Chrome Sticker Sheet from Cubesmith. The rotation of the puzzle is pretty smooth. I wasn't sure what it would be like when I was cutting so deeply into the centers but it still turns smoothly. I am not sure if this shape has been done before or if the name has been used on an other puzzle. If it has, please let me know. I hope to have a video up soon for this puzzle. I hope you enjoy.

looks awesome!

I hope it is your last time hand-cutting as well. I may just have to steal your vinyl cutter :mrgreen:

Cool! I just posted my new puzzle mod similar to this but needs a name :lol:
It is around the puzzle building and modding area.

Nice job as always! I haven't seen this shape before.....nor have I seen that name used. Your life will change forever once you get a vinyl cutter. There were mods I was reluctant to make prior to getting a cutter because I didn't want to sticker them :D

Again, great job on this mod!!
