Glittering Triforce

Glittering Triforce

26 January 2012

Painstakingly wire-wrapped luscious Swarovski crystals make an absolutely perfect display of geek pride.  I've bene so happy to do so many of these over the years, both in gold-plated and gold-filled gold.  I can always take a commission for them.

Spiritual Stones

Spiritual Stones

"The Temple of Time is the entrance through which you can enter the Sacred Realm from our world. But the entrance is sealed with a stone wall called the Door of Time. And, in order to open the door, it is said that you need to collect three Spiritual Stones." - Zelda, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

I've made a number of these sets over the years and still manage to constantly be improving the design and stability.  I can also always be commissioned for them.

Ebony and Ivory Necklace

Ebony and Ivory Necklace

24 January 2012

It's no secret that I love me some Devil May Cry. I have a... special affection for Dante's twin guns, Ebony and Ivory; so much so that I've named my handhelds after them (the PSP is Ebony, and the DS is Ivory... the PS3 is Alastor, which is a whole different story). I wanted to try to make them as charms, both different tones of silver. Unfortunately it took about 20 shots and three different lighting configurations to get the camera to recognize that they were in fact two different tones of silver and not just BLAZE OF SHINY. Better in person, but... you know how that goes.

The necklace itself is extremely adjustable, allowing for the guns to hang at the same height or one above the other. Whatever makes you feel more ready to take on those poor demons who never saw you coming. As for the charms themselves, they're actually some combination of smooth and polished, and rough and obviously hand-made/carved. Somehow I just enjoyed how that came out.

Dangly Tachikoma Necklace

Dangly Tachikoma Necklace

24 January 2012

Who wouldn't love a tiny little Tachikoma looking out for them? I did not plan this. I know I say that a lot, but I mean it every time. I just saw the back bead, which happened to be next to the round bead, and... yeah. I refuse to try and explain how much of a pain it was to get the wire to work exactly like I wanted it to, but I succeeded and it's over now and that seems really important. And, well, Tachikoma!

So I had the little Tachikoma, right? Surely that was over and i could get back to other things. ...And then somehow the idea of making a whole necklace for it happened, and... I don't know. I went through my beads, and there was this utterly gorgeous blue agate that worked perfectly. So. Yes. That's several more hours of my life, putting that thing together. I do hope it's worthy of the Major herself.

(Ghost in the Shell and Tachikomas belong to Masamune Shirow, Production I.G, and probably a lot more people and companies that I fail to realize. Some day I will have a Motoko action figure. Some day.)

Wine Pearls

Wine Pearls

Once I saw the color of these freshwater pearls... I knew both that I had to have them, and that I might actually have to do something with them. I wanted to try for something very simple... and I suppose it is, technically. Sort of.

These little tiny links are actually amazingly strong. But I still worried to the point where I put a more "traditional" chain in the back. Hey, I'm rough on my jewelry.

Satiate

Satiate

29 November 2011

A project between projects, put together when one thing was drying and another was just being irritating. At first glance, the round beads appear to be black, but they're saturated with GREEN SPARKLIES! ...Ahem. I really liked how they went with the tiny blood red Swarovski crystals, so I added silver beads, a chain, and there we go.

Phoenix Tail

Phoenix Tail

29 November 2011

Sort of on a whim, go figure. I'd been planning to come up with something simple from an assortment of Swarovski crystals that happened to be on sale... but nothing can ever be simple. Luckily the result seems rather worth the effort.

Pearls for the Modern Punk

Pearls for the Modern Punk

29 November 2011

I found gorgeous cherry red freshwater pearls. I bought them. I made happiness with them. *grin*

I do love their color, though. Very hard to fully grab it with pictures, but I think I was mostly successful. Something playful and fun and shiny and definitely not quite traditional.
