I have a shirt with this design, but I absolutely love this Fibonacci Sequence necklace from Boutique Academia (wow, do I want this!).


The shop has some fabulous offerings for us geeky folks! My three other favorites from the site are the Neurons:

The Pleiades:

Tree Ring:

Great Stuff!

Alien Facehugger Brooch

Posted in craft, jewelry, sci-fi with tags , , on January 5, 2015 by shewalkssoftly

Alien fans, drop everything and look at this Facehugger Brooch!


Yes, the silver craftsmanship is wonderful, but check out the center! An actual Chestburster waiting to squirm its way into someone’s unsuspecting guts.

I can’t get over how well done this creature is. I wish these were for sale. I would love that resin center piece by itself, but using it as an anatomically correct Alien takes it to a whole other level.

I’ve just been browsing Martha Rotten’s Etsy store, and I came across some interesting jewelry bits.

My favorites (which I hope to add to my collection one day) are the clock hand earrings and necklace.



There are many variations of bone, straight, curved and otherwise.

And the occasional Confessional Cuff.

Mer-babies are a rather underrepresented part of the Mer-kingdom…at least in jewelry.

See more at Martha Rotten.

Naomi Kizhner: Energy Addicts

Posted in design, jewelry, macabre with tags , , on September 17, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

Naomi Kizhner has designed a parasitic series of jewelry. These creatures of metal and glass (in theory) feed off the energy of those who wear them via pincers that reach through the body into the spine where they draw upon electrical nerve conductivity.


The line will not be going into actual production (I’d say this is fairly obvious, but one never knows in this society. Most of us already encounter plenty of welcome parasitism from mass produced objects).

Afterlife Artwork

Posted in anatomy, craft, jewelry, taxidermy with tags , , , on August 27, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

Afterlife Artwork sells unique CRUELTY FREE (the artist is very clear that no animals are harmed for the making of any of these pieces) anatomical jewelry, featuring bits and bones of many varieties.

The rattlesnake skeletons look great:

Knowing that these creatures were already deceased is important to me (I get very upset when animals suffer for art of any kind). In this case, these displays become loving tributes to the gorgeous inner workings of our fellow critters. She is making use of that which would otherwise be discarded or rot, showcasing these miraculous tiny bits of nature.

The Lysine Contingency

Posted in anatomy, craft, jewelry with tags , , on July 18, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

I was quite taken aback when I saw The Lysine Contingency, because I have, in fact, crafted almost every single one of these jewelry designs (right down to the settings and chains) on my own in previous years! Great minds!


All of their designs are just my style. I think I’d wear absolutely everything in their catalog.

Dinosaurs! I’d forgotten all about dinosaurs in my own hobby creations!

The Lysine Contingency


Posted in craft, jewelry, science with tags , , on April 26, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

Not long ago, I had a dream that I was crafting a sacred geometry shape out of silver wire in my (hopefully soon to actually exist) metalwork area at home. This led me to a search a few things and stumble upon Delftia .

My favorite piece in the collection:

Here’s one I’ve yet to see anywhere else (though I can’t say I’ve searched much hypercube jewelry).

Great jewelry for science geeks in this Etsy shop.
