Steampunk Cthulhu!

I had even more fun this time than with the previous Cthulhu pendant. I used some brass watch parts that are quite scarce among my supplies (the non-gear ones; I have a lot of similar steel parts, but they just didn’t fit), but it was worth it. Available on Etsy.

Clockwork heart III

Another heart. The idea was to make two contrasting halves, the droid one and the natural one, with an “organic” type of ornamentation (the spiral). I like the idea, I might use it more often.  Available on Etsy.

Steampunk cross

At first I was going to name it “Vampire repellent”, but I didn’t want to hurt anybody’s religious feelings, so I sticked with the generic name. Actually, being non-Christian and generally anti-religious and all, I’ve never thought I’d ever make a cross-shaped pendant. I changed my mind when I’ve got this piece of brass, which I pulled out of a vintage Russian watch. It was so cross-like! I added two gears to remove all doubt …

Tentacles! (Cthulhu jewellery)

Honestly, I don’t remember having so much fun while making any piece of jewellery :D I came up with this idea, when my latest pendants started to resemble tentacles in a disturbing way. I used silver foil glass, enamelled wire and Czech fire polished beads. Also, when researching Cthulhu jewellery, I  have been finding mostly octopus designs, only small percentage were real Cthulhus. This item has been sold.

Steampunk and non-steampunk

I was running out of watch parts, this flat piece was one of the last that I had. I weaved about a half of this pendant, when suddenly the bead inside broke in two :( I had to undo half of what I had made to replace it with a new one. I was happy with the final result, and everybody seemed to like it. My friend asked me to make something similar, but non-steampunk. …

Copper steampunk earrings

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 …

Heart of Lorkhan

I’ve been playing Morrowind a lot lately (again), whis is surprisingly inspiring for a video game, where usually most things are obvious and no place is left for doubt. The island on which the story is being played, has numerous ruins left from hundreds of years before by a race of inventors and scientists called the Dwemer (based vaguely on Assyrians). The whole race has vanished from the realm, and the reason why is the …
