Mythical Merits – Leather Patches

Leather Patch Bag 001 Leather Patch Group 001I haven’t been able to make the Mythical Merit series into fabric patches for several reasons, but to compensate for the time being, I got the idea to make them into nice, rugged leather patches instead. I’m so thrilled with how they turned out!

These are larger than my buttons (about 2.5 inches along the side) so a single one works great on a small bag and multiples can nest together on a medium to large bag. All the details have been etched with a laser for ultimate resistance against wear and tear. Holes have been pre-cut to make for easy sewing.

Phoenix 001Depending on the response, I’ll expand into all my Mythical Merit designs, but for now, the following are available:

Loch Ness Monster / WerewolfGhost / Kraken / Phoenix / Demon Trap / Dream Demon ‘Bill Cipher’

Spoon Meter Necklace

Simple Silver Ch 001 Simple Silver Ring 003After being introduced to Spoon Theory by my friend Daunt on Tumblr, I was intrigued by the idea that a person could easily and accurately convey their level of mental, emotional, and physical energy to another. After doing more research into how Spoon Theory was started, I inspired to create this necklace that could help some friends of mine out in a fun and cute way.

Thus was born the Spoon Meter necklace! Each spoon charm has its own lobster clasp so as the wearer’s spoon level changes, so can the necklace as each charm is added or removed.

Spoon charms are available in:

  • Silver Acrylic – Simple Spoon Shape
  • Silver Acrylic – Elegant Spoon Shape
  • Wood – Simple Spoon Shape
  • Wood – Elegant Spoon Shape
  • Custom painted! – Simple Spoon Shape that has been hand painted with custom chosen colors.

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.
