Such a perfect gift for one of my bridesmaids, subtle ways to be nerdy but also classy. Beautiful work!

A very simple design, but it is so cool! It is made well and is a must have for my fellow Black Widow fans! :)

About

Finding my way back to creativity and joy

In 2013, I left academia with a new graduate degree, and then immediately placed it in my closet.

During the thesis writing process, I'd taken a weekly metal class at the local art league, re-discovering my 'hobby' of making jewelry. (As a teenager, I'd made polymer clay leaf pins from Lord of the Rings. I gifted them to friends and family, and even sold a few online!)

Being a passionate fan, I love wearables that remind me of my favorite things. So I decided the creative path was for me! As a PWD (person with a disability), not only does creating things bring me joy, but it also allows me to set my own pace and hours. Win-win! [If you are a PWD interested in supporting yourself through Etsy, I'm happy to answer any questions you might have. Just send me a message ;) ]

I find my inspiration through love of videogames, animation, film, comics, and TV. I'm constantly finding new things to stream in my workshop as I work. It all counts as research, right? ;)

I believe that the quality of design, authenticity, and attention to detail are best when a piece is made by a real, honest-to-goodness fan.

Additional policies and FAQs
Please note: Because handcrafted items are unique, each finished design may vary slightly.

FAQ:

Q: How can I polish my brass or copper jewelry?

A: Each piece is coated with a spray acrylic sealant to retard the tarnishing process, but eventually this will wear off and your jewelry may need to be cleaned. Luckily, this can be easily done by making a paste of baking soda & vinegar, or baking soda & lemon juice. Leave the paste on the jewelry for at least 15 minutes, then rub the surface with a soft cloth. Rinse well and dry completely.


Q: What if I need a different length chain?

A: I'm more than happy to customize the length of necklace chain at no extra cost. Just send me a message :)


Q: How much will the custom stamping cost for my Mass Effect tags?

A: All customization is included in the price.
