Made almost 100% from wood (sometimes with tiny amounts of other things) I paint and / or finish these with dark undertones and shading to highlight the details and then use layers of metallic and / or other coloring and finishes, making sure a lot of details shine through, often even the wood grain despite high tech themes. They maintain an often retro, sometimes even rustic look and feel to them, like an "olde worlde" toy or something (some more so than others). This creation is about 3" wide including to the "claw" tips (remember, 2 1/2 centimeters to an inch) and about 1 1/4" high.
Note... I am now happy to place these on a pin back (of the closest appropriate size I have) so you may use them as a pin or hat decoration instead, or as a pendant necklace (you use your own chain)! This can be done with MANY (dare I say most all) of my smaller items and I am doing pendants, earrings, keychains, cufflinks and sometimes other jewelry formats too! Way too many choices to list each one seperately -- let me know your desires! We can discuss details and charges (if any, most often not!) and I will let you know if it is not possible do to item type. There are DIFFERENT COLORS of finishes available as well for the wood pieces themselves -- let me know your desires! We can discuss details and charges (if any).
While you're here consider browsing my many other pieces usually made mostly from wood including ray guns, robots, rockets, flying saucers, other vehicles, animals, diorama scenes and more, made in various forms from tiny miniatures to full size replicas, jewelry like pendants, Christmas ornaments, magnets and others! I do retro, some straight hard science, steampunk, humorous and anything else that comes to mind...
Consider the many uses for this item ... a dangle comes in handy! A popular use (and one of my own first purposes) for these are as a pendant on a necklace! Also consider it's potential as a hair clip decoration, single earring, zipper pull, hang it in a window, from a rear view mirror, next to your computer screen, AND DON'T FORGET the other of my own top 2 choices -- a Christmas Tree ornament!
I do hope the pictures fully communicate the charm I am sure you will find in the final product once you hold it in your hands.
These collectable pieces are generally meant for display or adult use and NOT for young children to play with. Do to their hand made and finished nature as well as the natural wood and materials used some variations are of course normal.
