Things are finally ready for the sci-fi convention! I had an extra week, one more than I thought I would, so I ended up with a few more items than planned on. I was happily able to try out a few things I’ve been thinking about and some of them worked out really well! Of course, I made a few more Cthulhu brooches (including another winged one), and a larger necklace as well. I hope you like my new work as much as I do 🙂
This item was my first attempt at a wrapped key pendant. I’m sure my next one will only improve!
This next item went astray from my original design, so I turned it into a Steampunk Snail! hehe
These next three are more Cthulhus. I particularly like the Gunmetal one and will be doing more of those soon.
This next pendant is my first attempt of wrapping a larger bead. The bead is about an inch and a half or so (maybe 35-40mm) and made for some interesting challenges. I was starting to wish I hadn’t just run out of Blue Steel wire right after it was done.
I was almost tempted to keep this next one for myself! I’ll likely have to make another similar one down the road if this sells at Norwescon.
Here is my second Steampunk Medal. I was thinking about calling this one ‘Order of the Alchemical Automatons’. I enjoyed making the robot in the medal part, and how the gears on the bar ended up looking like an owls face. 😀
This necklace was really tricky to make. It’s made up of more layers that I have attempted previously, and took a lot of work to wrap cleanly. It is supposed to be insect like, but almost looks like a cross between a beetle and a rocket-ship. Perfect for Steampunk! lol. Other than the butterfly pendant that I am working on now, I think this is the largest pendant I’ve made so far. I used my favorite cab in it too, hopefully I’ll be able to get some more similar ones!
Here’s another angle for that pendant.
And here’s the final one. I think this winged Cthulhu might have turned out better than the last one! The wings especially were tough to make. I think my wing quality is going up a lot though!
Well that’s all I was able to get done! I’ve really enjoyed that I’ve found a way to more easily craft jewelry while working around my illness – it’s so nice to be able to make more 🙂
Unfortunately, none of these are available at my Etsy store Victorian Clockworks, but soon other items will be! Wish me luck with sales at Norwescon! (If you are attending, my work can be found at my moms clothing booth ‘Moonlighting’)
