Yeay! I finally got to upload one of my favourite designs!
I am truly excited about this piece, and it certainly won't be my last piece of Industrial work. It was very much so inspired by my partner, who lives in breathes industrial in many ways. He loves his Industrial music, he has a face full of metal (piercings, that is), and works in an Industrial field of work. Heh. It's also inspired by my love of Industrial art and music, as well. Favourites being Throbbing Gristle and Skinny Puppy.
This is an Industrial anatomically correct human heart pendant. It is complete with everything that makes the heart beat, except this heart does not bleed, for it does not have veins and arteries. It has been replaced with an intricate interior of gears and watch parts.
It is silver polymer clay dusted in silver powder in some spots to give it the look of worn silver. It is complete with grooves and rivets to make it look like it is a series of panels all connected together.
There are three sections in which the panels have been removed: a small piece on the back, exposing some gears, a large piece on the front exposing even more pieces and gears, and a small piece on the side exposing some cylindrical metal pieces and a coil I made from mechanics wire. On the right side, there is a few watch knobs to complete the effect.
On top is the large series of valves that have been dusted with silver and gold to give the look of worn brass and silver, as well. All grooves have been rubbed with black "oil" to give that greased and used look, and to give it a lot more depth.
As you can see on the back view, there is a metal wire loop that will be attatched to a split jump ring and it can be threaded onto a necklace! It truly is much more beautiful up close, and does identify with this whole steampunk movement that has come so popular lately. It took a lot of patience to create! A lot of *fiddling around* and fumbling and detail. Haha!
What do ya think?!
