Heart pendants – 2012 3rd batch

For some reason most of the steampunk ones are green this time… I think I need to go shopping for supplies, most of the hearts I have left are green at the moment. Also, some of them have the new key charms I’ve recently got and will be using from now on until further notice (they’re bigger but I like them better than the previous ones). The pendants are available in my Etsy shop, in …

Cthulhu brooches/pins

I’ve had this idea for a while, especially since people have been asking about Cthulhu brooches, I just had to find a way to attach a pendant to a pin. Kilt pins came to the rescue, as they’re equipped with loops. I didn’t know what else to attach to the loops (except for the chain), so I made a few versions with and without beads. Feedback will be appreciated. All pins are available in the …

New blue and red heart pendants

I haven’t been making anything else except heart pendants recently, because there’s a high demand for them before the holiday season.

For now just check …

Handmade glass pendants

The next step from buying handmade lampwork beads in bulk, is buying artistic glass beads and cabs from self-representing glass artists. They are usually higher quality than the commercially manufactured supplies, and unlike them, are absolutely unique (this is me showing the middle finger wondering how to protect myself from plagiarism, which unfortunately happened just recently). I’ve recently purchased some beautiful pieces from other artists on Etsy. The pendants listed here are available in my Etsy …

Gothic necklace

I really wanted to use all these small beads that normally I don’t, instead of getting rid of them, but I didn’t want to make anything plain, but rather exciting. I came up with this. The necklace part is crocheted with wire and random selection of purple glass beads, and the central piece is wire wrapped, like all the rest of my pendants (just different shape). The clasp is in the front. Available on Etsy.
