Steampunk heart necklace by Itti Steampunk heart necklace by Itti
#Artcrossing is my group. I founded it last year. In a nutshell: you make a little present for someone using only a short description of this person. Then you mail it off and when they've received it, then someone else will make a gift for you. You should totally join.

I have been so busy the last few months that even though I've been doing all the admin for #Artcrossing I haven't had time to participate myself. The last gift I made was in November/December.

Well anyway, I thought, time to fix that! This particular gift was for *ninakuru, who said she loved steampunk and necklaces. I've been dying to make something steampunk for ages - I bought a bunch of old watch parts on eBay a year or so ago and hadn't done anything with them up til now. So I made her this pendant, using this fabulous tutorial. I was so chuffed with how it turned out! :)

This particular one has been given away but I can make you one just like it for 6 (about $9.30) plus P&P. If you're interested in buying please send a note and I can give you payment info, plus also work out the P&P once you let me know where you want it sent to.

This necklace is amazing, i like steampunk very much but my sister more than I. I would love to buy this for her for her birthday. Do you sell on Etsy or Ebay or something of the sort?

At the moment I don't sell on either but I can do them for a commission if you just pay me via PayPal and I can make you one. Shall I note you with more details? What country would you want me to ship it to?

:iconlilandsev:
lilandsev Featured By Owner Oct 21, 2012
Australia. It depends on how much it's going to cost. And I don't actually have any money at the moment so please don't make yet for me. I'll tell you when I have the money. Thank you so much :)

I will definitely consider it but I can't exactly buy ... I have to get stuff through my mom ... ^J^" But shipping could be a problem ... Are you in Europe?

Yes, I'm in the UK. Where are you from? I could work out how much shipping would cost for you if you're thinking you might buy.

That's just so freaking beautiful. I was wondering, though, how much would i need to pay you to buy one of them, and if i bought one and put it on one of the people in my student film, would you want me to put your name in the credits?

6 (about $9.30) plus P&P. I would love to be credited in your film, it would make my day, but it's not necessary if you don't want to. If you're interested in buying please send a note and I can give you payment info, plus also work out the P&P once you let me know where you want it sent to.

Now that I'm running my own group I really have to give you props for managing not one but various groups. It's not an easy task! :wow:
~bleaksilence is very lucky to have received such an amazing gift. It has a look to it of something you could buy from a store, but at the same time it's beautifully handcrafted! I think it's so wonderful how you recycled old watch parts to make this necklace as well. I all ready knew you are great at drawing, baking, cooking, photography, and pyrography, and now you can add jewelry making to that list as well! I can't wait to see what you do in the future!
As far as the photograph it'self, I love the warm lighting and the focus on the details of the pendant. I always appreciate how conscious you are of a nice clean background too. It doesn't take anything away from the main focus of the necklace, but instead just adds to the warmth. :aww:

Fantastic job as always Itti. :clap:

Thanks Azzie! :huggle: It's mainly #Artcrossing these days but I have a couple of others I help out in too. When I had #Artcrossing and #PresentsFromSanta on at the same time over the Christmas period that proved a bit much so I'm not sure I'm going to do #PresentsFromSanta again, at least not this year.

Thanks as always for your lovely words :aww: I was amazed at what a hit this necklace was, there are a bunch of people wanting to buy one now :o (but there's "interested" and there's "actually give me money", we'll see how it goes lol).

Well I'm not surprised you got the Deviant of the Month award with how well you run your groups!
And you're welcome as always! :heart:
I bet you could sell jewelry at art festivals, set up a little booth and you'd be a bit hit! :D

Well it would be kind of cool doing something like that :D But I don't know if I'd make enough money to cover the cost of the table. Plus I'd have to make a LOT in advance, and then what if they didn't sell! Haha, I'd be stuck with them. But it would be kind of cool to do... maybe I'll look into it.

This is really amazing. :O

You do get a clear feeling of it being steampunk with what you've done to this piece and.. yeah, it's really creative and it's obvious you've spent time and effort here.

I like how the colours go together well there. It's a lovely piece! :la:

Thanks very much! Yeah, I had to buy a new chain to make it go together. All I had was silver, which would have looked much too "clean"!

Thanks very much for your comment :glomp:
