Video summary: Jon wearing our Light Up Goggles

Steampunk * Fantasy * Gothic * SciFi * and Just Plain Weird

Our motto is Somniamus Ergo Facimus: we dream, therefore we fabricate! We make whatever we feel like making, and believe that every Octopunx creation has an owner out there somewhere in the universe just waiting to encounter their weird new treasure. We're happy to take on custom orders, experiment, and just make things up as we go along. We regularly tour West Coast conventions, faires, and festivals -everywhere from San Diego to Seattle, and roam to points East whenever we can, seeking out new adventures and inspiration. We hope to see you out there soon :)

Octopunx is a joint venture by Dava Ellinger-Linville and Jon Linville (Dava Design Est 2004), and Kerin Schiesser (The Robot Angel Est 2008), with help from Marilyn Peters and Kyrie Otero. We changed our name from DDRA Steampunk to Octopunx in 2017. We frequently partner with Citrus Atelier (https://www.etsy.com/shop/CitrusAtelier).

Octopunx is a 100 percent smoke free shop (but there will be cat hair).

We only charge extra for items requiring us to order materials only for your project (i.e. something we don't normally use) or add extra labor for your item. Full custom items (design from scratch) are time and materials based. Dava's time to do the Estimate is free, any artwork beyond the preliminary sketches/layout is charged on a per hour basis. Custom items are non-returnable and non-refundable except in cases of shipping damage or warranty issues. Buyer is responsible for reporting any issues within 3 days of delivery.

Care instructions

Please treat your Octopunx jewelry gently! We recommend cleaning with a soft cloth. Hand Painted items may not withstand soap or sanitizer, but gentle rinse with cold water is fine. Take off rings when washing hands or using sanitizer to protect the plating on the metal and prevent tarnish.

Goggles can be cleaned with a soft cloth. They should be transported and stored in a box or bag to prevent damage to lenses or paint. Minor water exposure will not cause any damage to the lenses or paint. Saltwater, chlorine, or other chemicals may damage your goggles. If you plan to attend an outdoor event where it will be very dusty we recommend making sure your design has outer glass lenses.

Sizing details

All size details are estimated. If you need precise measurements for any item please feel free to contact us and we'll get out the calipers! Rings are adjustable unless otherwise stated. If you would like us to size the ring for you before shipping, please add a note to your order. Sizing is limited by materials but we can always try to meet your needs. Custom rings are available for unusual sizes, please feel free to contact us :) Biggest I ever made was a 18, smallest a 2. Human variety is amazing!
