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.

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.

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.

As you could see in one of my previous posts, my last batch included a lot of hearts. Now I’ve …

Blue blood

I only had one bead like this: large, sapphire coloured venetian glass, so I waited to use it until I had gold plated wire (just didn’t seem to go with anything else). And I had some brass gears I wanted to use. The pictures just don’t show the whole effect, I can’t manage to photograph it right. It took me several hours to finish it. That’s because gold plated wire is harder to work with, …

New batch of glass beads

I bought on Ebay some venetian glass mixes in colours suiting my steampunk creations and I wasn’t disappointed. Most of the beads will go with the style perfectly. I feel oficially inspired.
