"Personal Reactor": This is the piece that started it all! The origins of Reaction Designs and my love of Steampunk metalwork. This is an entirely hand fabricated personal nuclear reactor! This piece was designed as the endgame for all steampunk technology. As you may know nuclear power is made by creating enormous amounts of heat through fusion or fission which then generates steam and the steam powers turbines to create energy. My thought was: “if only that could be harnessed to power a human being! Are you sick and tired of being sick and tired? Simply strap on Professor Nelson’s personal reactor and buzz the day away with the natural zip of portable fission!” I like to point out that I conceived and fabricated this several years before Iron man became the huge phenomenon that is it today.

This piece was conceived to quell the frustration I had from growing up as a child of Science Fiction where Nuclear energy not only powers laboratories or super scientists and mad geniuses but radiation gives ordinary people amazing super powers! The reality of Nuclear power is obviously less desirable, with the various disasters that have happened trying to control it and the horrible side effects and death that occurs from actual exposure to radiation. So this piece stemmed from a desire to see more of my fantasy mix with reality. Perhaps someday we will be able to get superpowers but until then, I will continue to make devices that blur the lines of reality!

$2000                                                                                                                Available from Symmetry Jewelers in New Orleans.

Personal Cooling Rods: There comes a time in every adventurer’s life when the pressure simply becomes too much. When the boiling frustration threatens to blow a gasket and unleash a scalding blast of unbridled fury that destroys everything in its path! It’s those times dear friends when you will be happy to have the luxury of a personal pressure regulator that will allow you to defuse the tension and prevent those costly meltdowns. Simply extend the high capacity cooling chamber and allow the rods to cool your head and heels simultaneously.

This is an entirely hand fabricated wearable sculpture composed of Brass,Titanium, and steel. The lighted chamber slides on a custom built track and locks inside the completely light proof housing so the light is only visible when the slide is extended. A switch on the back allows the wearer to turn the rods on and off as desired. It sits high on the neck on a 1/4” wide black leather strap with a unique front mounted hook/link clasp system. Batteries included.

Incorporating design elements from ships, planes, and nuclear reactors, this is truly a piece of wearable art that will no doubt spark conversations in any social setting.

Measures: 5 1/2” long (Closed). 3” wide at the top, 1 1/2” wide at the bottom.
7 1/2” long (Open).

The Isotope Extruder”: Custom made to power the reactors in the first trans-galaxy cruise ship. Tragically the funding was cut before the inaugural voyage. The ship was dismantled, and the blueprints stolen by pirates leaving only the activation key behind. Should someone recover the blueprints and rebuild the legendary ship this key would send them soaring through the cosmos! Until then it makes a beautiful beautiful vest, lapel or hat pin!

Handmade from Brass and Sterling Silver. The bright green “isotope” is UV reactive Plexiglass that shines brilliantly in any light but really glows in sunlight or under a black light.

Measures 2.5” long and .5” wide
