Silent Auction: Custom Shock Jewelry by New-line Engraving and Suspension Technologies at Flying Piston Builder’s Breakfast
I spoke with Canadian Heather New of New-line Engraving about engraving a set of shock rings and cups using Byzantine architecture, Greek mythology, and ancient Greek art as an inspiration. She made the midnight black shocks really pop.
What is cool about this silent auction piece is the value of the prize is $1,200 if you bought the shocks and engaged new-line with the engraving. This is the first place you can buy a set of Custom Shock Jewelry!
Heather makes it sound easy.
- Start with clean & bare metal.
- Paint the rings and cups white, then draw directly onto the piece.
- Make deep cuts around design.
- Remove the background and apply gun blue. (This turns the entire piece black)
- Polish the finished pieces / The textured background remains black.
Working with Heather is a snap. Send the part to be engraved stripped and without chrome. Artwork is done after pieces are received, and just prior to engraving.
Standard turnaround time is 6-8 weeks; however, that can change depending on her current work load and of course, she is easily bribed with chocolate.
So if you are in Sturgis on Sunday at 9:30AM, stop on by the Buffalo Chip for the Flying Piston Builder’s Breakfast to help a vet and fuel up with some people fuel.

A silent auction produces the greatest part of the fund raising efforts. This year we have something special from New-line Engraving and Suspension Technologies shocks.
