Gaming Jewellery You Always Wanted
These are images of jewellery I have created myself. They include Mario, Triforce, Pokemon, Pac-Man and even some Kings Quest. Enjoy!!!
While I'm working on a new Point and Click Review, I thought I would share some images of the jewellery I've created over the last year.
Under each photo I will give a brief explanation of what it is and how I created it. I hope you all enjoy.
Lets get all the Mario pictures out of the way first.
This Mario Keyring was created mainly with me messing about lol. I had a copy of Mario Kart Wii in front of me and I decided to see if I could create him out of Fimo Clay. This was the end result. I still need to make another Luigi though.
I still can't believe these Chomper Earrings worked out so well. Yet again these guys were created using Fimo Clay. Once the main body was created, I painted the teeth, mouth and eyes with acrylic paint, then added the little chain at the back.
The Yoshi Egg Earrings and Goomba Charm don't have much to them at all. With the eggs I used white marble effect Fimo Clay and added the green dots. With the Goomba I Just used Different colour Fimo and Painted the eyes with acrylic paint.
This Mario Mushroom Ring was created using Resin. (which I have only recently learned how to use) I started by cutting 3 pieces of the mushroom Fimo Cane and placing them in the mixed Resin. Since this was a first attempt, I am really happy with how it turned out.
These are the last of the Mario items. These Mario and Luigi Hats are created by painting the initials onto the Fimo Clay and then adding the small chains below.
These Triforce Earrings where created by making a triangle of yellow glitter Fimo and just adding the black triangle of Fimo on top. I then added the 3 chains below.
Both the pokeball Charm and the Pikachu Earrings where created by painting the details on the Fimo. This was my first attempt at painting Fimo and I feel it turned out really well.
This Pac-Man charm was created simply by using the wire that's holding the catch into the Pac-Man body, to put small bits of fimo on, which created the pellets. Who Remembers Dizzy? This little guy was created with separate red glitter Fimo boxing gloves and red glitter Fimo feet. They were attached to the same, white marble effect, Fimo that i used for the Yoshi Eggs.
The last piece I have to show you guys is actually the first piece of gaming jewellery I ever made. To some, it is just a hat but if you are an old school point and click gamer like myself then you will recognize this as, KING GRAHAM'S ADVENTURER'S HAT from the Kings Quest games. I got the idea for this after watching a live stream of the first game done by Paw Dugan(if you don't know who he is check out his videos here: http://thatguywiththeglasses.com/videolinks/teamt/paw, he is mostly a movie and music guy but he has also done a great Kings Quest retrospective and a lets play of Kings Quest 5. Anyway, as I was watching, I suddenly remembered how much I loved these games and wanted to create something from them. I knew the hat was the best thing and this is what I created.
I love making jewelery and I plan to make lots more. If any of you have any ideas of anything I could create, let me know in the comments and on my wall. I love experimenting and I am open to any ideas.
I hope you enjoyed seeing my work and feel free to let me know what you think.
I would love that! Thanks, I'm glad that you like it.
cheers, i'll def let you know. i've already saved your shop.
No problem. If you do join, let me know and I'll add your shop to my favorites.
i've just looked at you etsy page, your stuff is amazing. i want it all lol. the ones i really want though are the ps3 buttons and the playstation button earrings. they are fab. would you mind if i shared your page on my facebook page?
lol its cool, i've been thrown by that in the past too. also i do plan to practice. as i make a lot of this jewellery every day,if i can (mostly when my twin boys are napping) i have my own home business set up through facebook called Bensam Designs. so a lot of these items have been remade several times, although a couple of them are still experiments that i need to keep practicing.
lol i'm hoping so. i think even though they are simple, they are fun. i even want to make a pair for myself, just need to get my ears repierced lol.
cheers for lettin me know. it defo looks like a good site and i am going to seriously consider selling on it. here is the link to my facebook page that i use at the moment. http://www.facebook.com/pages/Bensam-Designs/262501907097724 i have a lot more on that page (not all gaming related). i'll defo be looking at your page. thank you again.
cheers, i think they're the first earrings i had made that made me want to get my ears pierced again so i could make a pair for myself lol.
cheers, i love how it turned out, especially after only just learning how to use resin. i also made a similar one with micky mouse but it seemed odd puttin it on here.
lol i'm glad you like them, i've noticed the seem to be the most popular.
thank you, that means a lot.
lol cheers glad you like them.
they are both great idea's. i'm gonna take a note of all these ideas and get started on them. glad you like the chomps lol.
lol cheers i've noticed a lot of people saying that here. I'm very proud of how they turned out. I'm glad you like them.
I have had a lot of people buy these off me for gifts. the mario heads seem to be the most popular.
Etsy is great. The site is easy to use and includes all kinds of resources for improving your shop. Mine is here: http://www.resetbuttons.etsy.com . The fees are reasonable. You pay a 20 cent listing fee per item, plus a small percentage of the total sales. My favorite part is that they've recently started offering direct checkout for credit cards, so I don't have to use PayPal for the most part. I'm not a big fan of PayPal. There are a lot of artists on Etsy who sell clay jewelry similar to yours, so it might be a good place to find new ideas, too.
lol I dont believe it so he is. oh well i'll need to remember them the next time i make him. cheers for lettin me know. glad you like the chomps.
cheers lol. I am so happy with how they turned out. I'm glad you like them.
