This is another #Artcrossing
gift, this time for ~HiddenCaitastrophe
. I came across the idea for these earrings when I was looking for inspiration for the previous gift for *bleaksilence
, but *bleaksilence
doesn't have pierced ears so I made her a necklace instead. But when I got ~HiddenCaitastrophe
's profile, who also loves steampunk (in fact steampunk is pretty much her whole profile!), I decided to make them for her instead.
As gifts go, it was a fairly simple one. It didn't take a long time to make (apart from lots of waiting for the glue to dry between "layers"). To be honest the hardest part was choosing the right combination of cogs to get the look I had in my head.
For those that don't know, #Artcrossing
in a nutshell: you make a little present for someone using only a short description of this person. Then you mail it off and when they've received it, then someone else will make a gift for you. (You should totally join.)
The last steampunk piece I made, I had some people requesting to buy one afterwards. I don't think I have the right combination of cogs again to make another pair of earrings like this, but you can commission me to do a necklace like below if you like:
