Go Bold

30 Jan

You can tell by my hair that I don’t like to be subtle in my appearance. This sometimes applies to the jewelry I wear as well. I like all kinds of jewelry, but occasionally, I want something that makes a statement. Fortunately, if you feel the same way, there are many artists out there that create such pieces. Prepare to be noticed!

The Finer Things

14 Nov

I love jewelry. I love bold, fun jewelry, understated, pretty pieces, and everything in between. There is a lot of geeky jewelry on Etsy, and much of it is of the fun and quirky variety, many of my own creations included. But sometimes I want to wear fine jewelry – something elegant that will stand the test of time. Luckily, there are artists on Etsy that have combined geekiness and fine jewelry, so you never have to choose between the two.

If you’re fond of dragons and fantasy, this ring should make you happy. It was created with a glass taxidermy eye and argentium silver.

Jewelsvine is one of my favorite shops. I have purchased from them in the past and still love my necklace. It was hard to choose just one item to feature, but I love this test tube necklace! Be sure to check out their shop for other awesomeness, like rocket lockets, skulls, robot kitties, and steampunk instruments.

I own a skull necklace from MichelleChangJewelry as well. She makes simple, elegant jewelry featuring skulls, foxes, hedgehogs, octopi and more.

Polymer Clay Geekery

I went through a phase of making hand-sewn artisan bears. On a whim, I decided to try using polymer clay to make footpads and the claws for the bears. I had never used polymer clay before, but I realized I had a knack for it and it wasn’t long before it became my main crafting medium. Pretty soon I was sculpting realistic skulls, life-size scorpions, and detailed Fallout miniatures. I still can’t believe those are the first items I decided to create, having no introduction into working with polymer, but I’m glad I did. I had fun trying new things, and wasn’t afraid of messing up because there wasn’t much of a financial commitment attached to the craft.

Polymer clay may be a cheaper craft material than, say, mohair or oil paint, but the art created is no less beautiful because of it. It’s an extremely versatile medium. It can be sculpted, textured, painted, carved, mixed with other elements, and layered over other objects. It is commonly made into jewelry and beads, but can also be used for everything from sculptures and masks to pens and business card holders.

It also translates nicely into geeky items, such as this Fallout Eye Bot and C3PO earrings!

Read on for more amazing items and a tutorial for making your own polymer clay geekery!
