Alligator / Mayfly Rod Guides

Just saw these awesome custom guides in the most recent issue of Rodmaker magazine. The alligator guide is featured on the cover and Mark Crouse's "Alligator Rod" on page 21. The mayfly guide appears to be the stripping guide on Italo Busi's "Combination Cane-Carbon" rod, also featured on page 21. How are these made? Where can I buy some?

I would bet they are custom made. Maybe ask a jeweler if they can do something for you?

It says in the magazine that the alligator was made by Kathy Spencer for Mark
