Thanks for the fave.
It have turned more darker in nowadays because of the patina, but I kinda like that deep contrast between brown tones and shining silver details. :)

That looks fantastic! Do you sell anywhere in Europe or only locally? Mainly interested in the pendant.

Thanks for the offer, but I don't make any business to outside Finland. This particular piece is also very difficult to make, so i can't consider making copies even for local markets.

Nice to hear it and thanks for the fave and watch. :)

I don't sell pieces like this even in Finland. (My commercial jewelry works are usually much more simpler than my personal projects..)

Mainly some brass, copper & silver mixes just like in my earlier pendant sets. In this spring I'm going to make probably more steampunk style pieces than usually, because they selled the fastest in last years fairs.

I really like steampunk things, but truly i prefer the more medieval looking stuff... that's why i love this mjölnir. :)

I have planned also some viking & steampunk mixes, like mjölnirs from old watch parts. :XD:

Maybe also some decorative patterns taken from Finnish iron age jewelry finds attached to larger brass gears, kind like this earlier brooch set. [link]
Gears make great frames for pendants and then i just try to cut different silver plate details in the middle.

No. I don't really have any business to outside Finland.
This particular necklace is also very time consuming to make, so i can't consider making copies even for local markets.

It's totally different case if i want to make something only for personal use, because then i don't have to think contribution margins and things like that..

Sound's cool. I read somewhere, that many foreigners have learned to understand at least our speaked language quite soon, but actual speaking or writing is much more difficult to learn and take many years to perform properly. :)

yeah, it's kind of the Marshall plan. I read about that german guy who married a finnish woman, he lives in Finland more then twelve years and he can properly use three and a half pads out of 15 ;)

that's a challenge.
