So, newsflash: my favourite creatures in the Doctor Who universe are the Ood.  I love their squishy tentacled faces! And when my partner for the One Tiny Doctor Who Thing swap mentioned that she liked them too, well... I couldn't resist!
She mentioned that she was interested in jewellery, so I went hunting around the internet to find some ideas.  I wanted to do something a little more understated than a big blue box on a chain.  I found this Etsy post, which was my inspiration! And thus the Ood pendant was born!

This photo courtesy of my partner:


My camera skills (and hands) have been a little shaky, so the detail isn't great in these:



I originally made it out of silver Sculpey, but decided that looked too cheap. So I picked up a tube of shiny silver acrylic paint, mixed a little black in there, and got what I think is a decent metallic-looking colour.

The translator orb (pearl) is a bead I had in my stash, and the eyes are little black gems I salvaged from a pair of earrings I never wear.

It's amazingly sculpted and the pearl is so perfect! Good thing you didn't use red gems for the eyes!

Aw, thanks! The one on Etsy struck me as a little more Cthulhu than Ood.  I can fhtagn with the best of them, but I have to say I like mine better too. Wink

Thank you for the lovely comments, everyone! You are so kind. Smiley
