1  *woop woop* Nerd Alert in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Bionic Dingo on: July 27, 2013 12:27:38 AM
Couple things I've made over the past couple days! Video game themed, of course.

Health meter bracelet, out of copper and sterling silver.

And this; a small (4cm long) butterfly knife pendant commissioned to be game-accurate to the one used by the Spy in TF2. Looks the same from both sides. Alas, no moving parts.

2  TF2 Stitch in Needlework: Completed Projects by Bionic Dingo on: August 04, 2010 12:47:09 AM
Possibly the first of a few. I dunno who all plays Team Fortress around here.

Here's the trailer it's based on.

3  Grad necklace in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Bionic Dingo on: May 04, 2009 09:54:45 PM
So I officially graduate with my Bachelor of Fuck All in a couple weeks. This piece was my final hoo-rah and was a labour of love.

The chain is made from 18g sterling. the wings are made from 1.5mm 6000 series aluminum anodized for 25 minutes at 20V in a 30% sulphuric acid solution. They were all cut out by hand and anodized by yours truly. The stones are hessonite garnet.

4  Sticky Bombs + tutorial link in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Bionic Dingo on: December 24, 2008 05:17:11 PM
So, I'm not sure how many other TF2ers there are around here, but I figured I'd post this anyway. I made it back in August as a quasi-promotional thing for a small gaming community I'm part of. Thought you guys might enjoy it. Smiley (I play Medic under the name (JF) Dingo! if any of you guys are interested in a game or two. Wink )

(edit: Photobucket ate my image, so I'll just link. Pattern is at the bottom of the page. I find it best to print it through photoshop so it's scaled correctly!)

Brass, wood, quartz, and etched aluminium. My apologies for the poor photo.

6  some pendants, and cufflinks. in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Bionic Dingo on: January 12, 2008 02:28:33 PM
Some more stuff I made this past term.

Sterling silver and synthetic ruby, hollowconstructed. The cufflinks are tube-set, and the pendant is gypsy-set. I gypsy set using a bit of a "cheater" method; if anyone on the board is interested in learning it let me know.

This one's sterling silver, pyrex, aquarium gravel and CZ's. it's a kimbrelite pipe pendant, 'cause I'm a dork like that.

and this last one's sterling silver and a bone tile I bought off of an australian goldsmith unloading some of his hoard. The reason I didn't touch up the tile is that it's well over a hundred years old, and I felt it would ruin it, somehow.

7  Urchinspine necklace in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Bionic Dingo on: January 04, 2008 11:53:07 AM
piece from my gemsetting course. Sterling silver, pearls, CZ's, and rubber. The stones on the urchin are overlay-set, with the points facing up. the stone on the clasp is gypsy-set, which is officially my new favourite technique, ever. also, the urchin screws off the plate on the front and has a secondary hidden bail, so he can be worn seperatley.

8  Honkin' koi neckpiece in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Bionic Dingo on: August 01, 2007 09:44:45 PM
exactly what it sounds like.

chased out of 16g copper sheet (Even though the jerk I bought it from swears on his mother it was 18g when I bought it) with the assorted crannies patina'd black to give a teensy bit o' definition. The dotty texture on his spots was done with a beading tool.

made from uber-scratch, as I had to make the tools to make the piece from scratch. Unfortunatley, they were a bit on the sharp side.
I was, however, lucky enough to get away with one pass of repousse and only one annealing.

First, a progress photo, prior to removal and cleaning and all that good stuff. If you look real close you can probably see some of my burned skin bits embedded in the pitch.

and the finished product, photographed on my driveway. He ended up with a black onyx cab in a collared bezel between his whiskers. I was originally going to use jade, but I'm glad I didn't.

Added a semi-bad action shot from which I have taken the liberty of removing my ugly mug. But not my bad-ass wonka shirt.

9  Headgear in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Bionic Dingo on: July 28, 2007 05:55:18 PM
A literary referance and reticulation project I made a few months back. If anybody had told me how difficult it would be to solder reticulated silver on to a wire, I woulden't have done it. But I did anyway, and what followed was many hours of swearing.

Anyway, it's made of silver, nickle, steel, moonstone and quartz chips, and some ribbon. It's not the tidiest piece of work I've done, but it was basically one big experiment and I think it worked out OK.

For the curious, the book I chose for the literary referance was Terry Pratchett's Wintersmith.

A shot of just the piece- the photo's a bit on the yellow side, unfortunatley.

And an action shot, demonstrating how it's worn. Head thoughtfully donated by a good friend of mine.

10  Some metal work in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Bionic Dingo on: July 13, 2007 08:16:37 PM
I'm new, so I might as well post some work. I'm studying to be a jeweller right now, and I am frankly having a ball. Though I have a distressing tendency to make it up as I go along.

(By the way, these are links to a non-selling gallery site. Is that a no-no? I sincerely apologize if it is. I'm not technology literate enough to be having with all this hotlinking. Please let me know if I've broken the rules!)

-An enamelled necklace with crows, and beads, and fripperie's

-more of this enamelling silliness, with champleve waterlilies and an embedded setting

-filigree pendant. Wooo.

-A most unusual, though quite unwearable, cocktail ring. Go big or Go home.

-A jewellery box, though I apologize if he doesn't count. I do love him so.
