This is a custom pendant designed to resemble a personal Submersible from the video game BIOSHOCK, now available for purchase.
The Bathysphere was a personal un-powered submarine used for research and observation. It was in essence a large sphere that would be lowered into the ocean. It would maintain pressure and a breathable atmosphere for a fixed amount of time and would then be retrieved. It could hold passengers or simply an array of sensors. In BIOSHOCK they are used for transportation via a network of rails.
The main hatch porthole and spotlight lens are composed of resin. The hatch is held closed with a magnet. The interior light is visible through the hatch, but to fully appreciate the detail you have to open the door.The main hatch swings open to reveal the control room.The back plate twists off to allow access to the battery box. The blue push button activates the lights. Entirely hand formed brass with an oxidized patina. Overall size is 2” in diameter and 1.75 ” thick.
Steampunk Stimpacks - Blue serum to restore vitality, If you want to stay alive, you need Plasmids! If you want to use Plasmids, you need EVE! This syringe maximizes EVE storage by allowing up to 8 injections from the same unit. Never suffer with that depleted feeling again! (We at Reaction Designs cannot recommend multiple rapid injections of EVE as this can prove fatal to normal human physiology.)
Green serum a powerful poison! Sometimes you need to quickly and quietly eliminate a guard or fellow splicer without drawing attention or alarm. With this rapid injection syringe you can independently or simultaneously inject a highly toxic compound directly into the blood stream of your soon to be silent foe. Render them silent as the grave with this custom concoction!
These syringes were created as a custom order to complete a Bioshock Steampunk costume. Gauntlet created by the talented Ian Finch-Field of Skinz-N-Hydez
The plungers move, extending up to three inches. Measures: 6” compressed 9” fully extended.
Imperial Injector: When duty calls, it’s important to be properly equipped. No time is this more important than during an epidemic. When you can’t find equipment that will hold up to your rigorous standards, long hours, and less than mainstream practices, you contract a craftsman to make one that will.
A doctor makes a living out of the sick. Either by healing them, diagnosing them, or experimenting on them. Sometimes before they are dead. Perhaps you have just the tincture or concoction to heal them of their ails, perhaps you know it’s too late and can only ease their passing, perhaps….you need another test subject. In order to be prepared for all contingencies it is necessary to have a syringe that seems benign, even imperial; which is capable of concealing a more sinister nature!
Handmade from Brass and cast Resin brightly polished and hand engraved. This syringe will get the job done in high style! Measures 7 inches in length, 10 inches when plunger is fully extended.
Arrowhead Pendant - A unique fix for how to create a tasteful way to display a very old artifact. A handmade Sterling Silver frame holds the customer’s arrowhead found by her father near their Georgia home. It features a Silver spear shaped overlay which has been hand engraved, replacing a previous attempt at wire wrapping. The scroll and leaf pattern was laid out and engraved by hand and is one of a kind! 2” X 1”
Hand Engraved Sterling Silver Earrings: These oval earrings are handmade from sterling silver. The scroll and leaf pattern was laid out and engraved entirely by hand. They feature a stippled, frosted background but could also be made with a blackened background to embellish the detail even more. They are 20 x 10 mm ovals that are delicate and lightweight but sacrifice nothing in quality and beauty. They go perfectly with any formal or casual attire and add a touch of class to any outfit. They are made to order and can be made larger or smaller by request.
Zippo lighter hand engraved for my step-father for Father’s day. Brass with a high polish. The engraving has been blackened with lacquer.
Gold Bearing Brass Pneumo: This piece was made by me during the last semester of my senior year at University.
This is my first, and I feel strongest, design in the Pnuemo series. I wanted to deal with the concept of containment and conveyance and I thought specifically about the air powered message tubes that banks use.
In a world of financial uncertainty and with precious metal costs at levels higher than ever before, should trends continue it may become practical and even fashionable to wear precious metal “investments” around your neck. While we already do this in ornamentation, I wanted to take that concept and apply it in an industrial and more practical sense. Rather than having something made from precious material merely as decoration, the pendant becomes a conveyor of wealth that could be traded and used as currency. This is the spirit that I try to convey with the Pneumo series: Small practical containers that convey riches and stay very close to the owner. Closeness, Security, Investment, Containment, Conveyance.
