The Rice Hat Samurai

Posted in craft, geek, jewelry, sci-fi with tags , , , on September 9, 2012 by shewalkssoftly

the Rice Hat Samurai has handmade pendants for the geek with fine taste.

Would you care for a Dalek to go with that evening dress?

Perhaps a dash of Star Trek for the discriminating feminine nerd?

And I actually quite like this abstract design as well.

There are some interesting jewelry picks over at Moon Raven Designs.

Let’s start with a guillotine pendant:


Raven feather ring:

And there are a variety of raven/crow/bird skulls to choose from. I’ve always wanted a raven skull pendant (not a real one…of course…but cast in metal is fine).

Geek OUTlet

I know these awesome pendants by Geek OUTlet are a Resident Evil reference, but I must admit I just adore the concept of wearing encapsulated DNA (which is what I thought this was at first glance).

Glow in the dark!

And in daylight…

These are definitely going on the wish list.

There are other geeky goodies in this store as well.

Alien Fossil Pendant

I’ve seen (and made) some sci-fi themed pendants in my day, but I’m totally floored by this alien fossil pendant by IMNIUM.

Seriously amazing craftsmanship! See other creations here.

Let’s start with a little faux vintage science, shall we?

Yes. Please.

I think this cat-erpillar is on my craft to-do list now. You can make it move in many kinds of ways.

Just your average post-Easter bunny mass suicide (nice work decorating the seasonal isle, guys):

Best weather forecast ever:

You know it’s spring when the Chevys start blooming again.

Grandfather of the Michelin Man

If the Sears portrait studio offered this, I would totally get in front of a camera.

A quizzical little Max Ernst piece:

Excellent ad:

Love this…

Truly amazing top hat idea:

I’d be reluctant to buy these for the sheer amount of lacing required, but this custom painted pair is quite a work of art.

Cute crafty robot:

Perfect for Halloween season (or anytime, really):

Clock for the guest room, to make folks feel welcome:

Does anyone know the origin story of this ice cream truck?

If you haven’t heard, divorce rings are becoming…a thing, proving once again that no human milestone…however brutal…can’t be commodified.


This has come up on a few favorite blogs now…


Ghostly beautiful…

An amazing collaboration between Salvador Dali and Elsa Schiaparelli, circa 1938:

And Jesus rides in on a unicorn to save the day…

Marie Antoinette’s royal beauty regimen was far less time consuming after her loss…

Just a few pre=Easter treats sitting on my desktop at the moment…

Ah, some evil bunny soap for the guest bathroom:

By Felipe Bedoya (I’ve never seen bunnies look this…high…but they appear to be enjoying their little party):


So deadly…

Just tiptoe away.

Bunny is dressing up his taxidermy human again.

Clock-bellied…but kind of neat:

While we’re on the topic of bellies, why not fashion this bread bowl and let your guests scoop the creamy innards from a poor eviscerated rabbit?

Um…I guess that’s better than human innards adorned with some kind of rabbit bride ensemble.

I’m not sure if I’ve posted this…but it’s amazing.

I would love to see the creature casting this shadow.

Show offs:

As far as kitschy holiday jewelry goes, this may be the finest thing that plastic can offer:

No amount of novelty could make this a good cake idea. One of the best things about cake is that you never have to peel it or bite into bits of shell.

Speaking of cake, here’s one for all of your sheep-rabbit needs:

Now this I could use as a centerpiece:

Perfect felted Easter eggs! Does anyone know the artist?

Adorable black bunny from Violetpie who also does some sweet Halloween creations.

More to come…
