I’m going to have a jewellery stall on another convention, Gaelcon in Dublin on 22-25 October (the upcoming weekend). I must get very busy again making more pendants, because they seem to sell a lot better than earrings, which I have plenty of. These are two of the pendants that I’ve made during Octocon. They will be available to buy during Gaelcon, I suppose.
Thinking about the upcoming Halloween, I made this pendant – perhaps it will go with somebody’s outfit? I’ve spent a lot of time making this, about four hours (about twice longer than my average pendant). A lot of fire polished beads in this one too: hematite-black and iris-crystal clear. Available on Etsy.
Another creative way to deal with a cameo. I glued it onto a vintage pocket watch movement instead of a classic cameo setting, and then wrapped it with wire. I love how it came out. Also, there’s slightly victorian feeling to it. Available on Etsy.
It took me a good while before I figured out how to wrap these, but I’m happy with how they came out. They are quite rare, as there is only one piece like that per watch, and they vary in shape, size and texture between different watches. I manage to find similar ones from time to time, though. Available on Etsy.
Taking a small break from the steampunk style, I made this classic-looking and more or less symmetric pendant. It is slightly gothic/victorian looking, though. I used some Czech fire polished beads (iris neutral and blue) for decoration. The cameo cabochon is glass. Available on Etsy.
This time I made a neutral toned pendant, which makes it fit into the gothic style, and left the chain out, which made it look like a more traditional cameo, just slightly steampunk modded. I used Czech fire polished beads and various watch parts. Available on Etsy.
I ordered a bag of copper beads, that looked like mechanism parts on a photo. I wasn’t wrong, they really look like mechanism parts :) I wish I had bought some more, because I’m running out of them and this seller doesn’t have them anymore. In fact I couldn’t find anything similar on the whole Ebay. Actually these earrings were the first steampunk items that I’ve made. All copper, no brass. I wrap the elements …
