Hand Engraved Pirate Ship Pendant: Let’s face it. No one lived as free or as merry as pirates. The very embodiments of incentive driven, unadulterated, liberty. Beholden to no law or government, answerable to no man, without regret or inhibition, the buccaneers roamed the open sea in search of treasure and adventure. The modern age was none too kind to this lifestyle nor those who lived it, and in the words of Black Bart Roberts, it was “a short life but a merry one.” It was common practice for sailors to carve or engrave personal objects during the long hours of a voyage. From whales, to ships, mermaids, or barmaids, anything and everything would be emblazoned on bone, wood, metal, and even their own skins. Perhaps you can’t rig a ship and strike for open waters but you can own a token of their legacy. This 25mm, solid brass tag has been painstakingly engraved with the finest details of a beautiful 3 masted ship, can be worn as a necklace, tag, or key chain, and will show everyone your longing to live a life that’s totally free. Can be further engraved with a name, logo or a personalized message of the back of the tag for an additional fee.

Vault Locket: For those items of unspeakable value, you can’t do much better than a vault. Now you can keep your treasured item right around your neck! This locket was designed to mimic the sturdy, impregnable security of a bank vault, while keeping the delicate beauty of a well made locket. It won’t hold your gold bullion or bearer bonds, but it can keep a photo, coin, ring, jewel or other small valuable safely sealed away from prying eyes or sticky fingers. Feel the security and dependability of a massive vault, miniaturized for personal adornment.

28mm in diameter. It has a twist locking mechanism so the lid comes entirely off. The inside chamber is 15mm in diameter and 10mm deep. Pictured in Sterling Silver but available in Brass, Gold, and even Platinum upon request. Price varies based upon material.

Sterling Silver $300 

One of a kind pendant now available for purchase!

“TARDIS Pendant”: As you probably know, the Chameleon Circuit on the Tardis is faulty. During one of his adventures the Doctor ended up being stranded in a world populated by giants. While under normal circumstances the Chameleon Circuit would’ve kept everything in proper proportion, it shorted out completely and forever miniaturized the Tardis. It was long ago abandoned and can now be enjoyed in a whole new way. (Don’t worry, it’s still bigger on the inside)

Handmade from brass and found objects, this one of a kind pendant houses a small LED that lights the windows and top light. Batteries are easily replaceable.

Measures 1”wide x 3”long

The Crimson Eye of Isis: This beautiful pendant was recently uncovered inside a sepulcher in the ruins of Isis’ redoubt. Isis was the goddess of Slaves, Sinners, Artists, and the downtrodden, which in many cases are one and the same. She is a source of power to warriors, women, and most importantly warrior women. Thought to have been worn by Isis herself, and believed to contain some of the life blood of her husband Osiris, this pendant is imbued with traits that increase the power of any woman, and instills the wearer with might known only to the Goddess herself.

A unique piece created by the artist, the red “eye” catches the light brilliantly and the pendant lies delicately about the wearer’s neck on twisted jeweler’s cord.

Handmade from Brass, Resin, and PVC tubing.

Measures 1” wide x 2.5” long

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.

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.

1.75” long, 0.75” in diameter on a 16” jeweler’s cord. Composed of
Brass, Sterling Silver, 24 Karat Gold Flake, & Mother of Pearl
