So I just participated in the One Tiny Doctor Who Thing swap... and well - my partner and I agreed that we have a hard time with just ONE thing...

My original idea was to woodburn in my partner's name (which just happened to be Amy... works out well) to a trinket box and fill it with jewellery. Well that didn't work and I ended up making a 4 inch round decoupaged paper box instead (it's on the paper crafts board) but here's the jewellery I sent her (even though the trinket box didn't end up actually being my "one tiny thing" as part of the swap fulfillment, just as an extra).

SO - the Doctor's Name Necklace

Doctor's name in Gallifreyan made out of shrink plastic, black glass faceted beads and grey crystazzi glass pearls. It has a magnetic closure (because my partner, like me, has kids and sometimes.... kids pull on necklaces, magnetic closures are a mom's saviour) and there's a shrink tag with my partner's name - Amy - in Gallifreyan (which is a symbol that I made up using a "how to write in Gallifreyan" tutorial I saw on Pinterest).

Next: The Deco Dalek Statement Necklace.

I had this little pendant in my stash for a while. It always struck me as being very art-deco style and I'm SO in love with art-deco but I never got around to using it... then it struck me that it kind of looked like a little Dalek! All it needed was a simple addition to represent the eyestalk and it would be a fashionable necklace that only fans of the Doctor would give a second look. Wink

Lastly - The TARDIS key earrings.

Just cute little TARDIS blue beaded drop earrings with a little key charm.

C&C Welcome!

I like how it is all kind of a nod to Dr. Who, not terribly literal.  That is how I like my nerdy jerelry, looks like pretty jewelry to one person, but to someone who gets it it becomes something else.  The only things I know about Dr. Who are what I see here on Craftster, so to me this is all just beautiful jewelry.

Leslie Winkle: Yup. Come for the breasts. Stay for the brains.

I love this! The Doctors Name Necklace is AWESOME. I would have had trouble parting with all of these pieces if I were you. Great job!
