The First Blade and Ruby’s Knife – Supernatural Inspired Necklaces

First Blade - BrownRuby KnifeI’m really inspired by a lot of the imagery that the tv show Supernatural uses. Sometimes they pull from real myths and urban legends, while other times they’ve created something unique to the Winchester’s world. Supernatural has managed to take an item, like Dean’s Chevy Impala, and almost give it a character and life of it’s own on screen beyond just a car or a weapon being used by a person. I feel like the TARDIS from Doctor Who could be another example of this.

Ruby’s Demon Knife first appeared in Season 3, but is still showing up in episodes now, during the 10th season. Cain’s First Blade, although much more recently introduced, has such a striking profile and concept; a jaw blade for a knife blade.

I’ve wanted to work with laser cut acrylic for some time now and I thought that the idea of turning one of the Winchester’s favorite weapons into a jewelry charm was an intriguing idea. I’m particularly pleased with the First Blade and how well etched acrylic mimics bone.

These pieces were so much fun to create and make. If you’d like to join the hunt and grab one for yourself, they are currently up in my Etsy shop.
