Hyaenodon by Gardi89
Hyaenodon
That was supposed to be a quick break from another painting I'm working on (and will be working on for some time yet, because there is foliage - and I'm hopeless at painting foliage ) It turned out to be a big, separate project altogether. Mostly because my brain decided that drawing the fur one hair at the time with 5px brush will be an awesome idea:P I like the result though :)
Anyway, Hyaenodon is a genus belonging to the Hyaenodontidae family (an the type one, at that), of the order (of now entirely extinct) Creodonta. The genus appeared in the late Eocene and died out during the early Miocene. It was very successful, existing for approximately 26.1 million years, making it one of the most successful carnivorous mammals genera.
I based that reconstruction an a photo of a H.horridus skull reconstruction, however, I was drawing it with H.gigas in mind (for no other reason than the fact that gigas was probably the biggest species of the genus ;P). There are no known complete H. gigas skulls, though (as far as I know, anyway ) so I decided to not name the picture as that species.
Also, Hyaenodons had some of the strongest bite force among the carnivorous mammals.

Wolf Engraved Copper Earrings by Gardi89
Wolf Engraved Copper Earrings
I made these earrings of raw copper sheet that I cut, filled, hammered, oxidised, and then engraved with wolves and moons. There will be also matching necklace, but I haven't finished it yet.
The earrings are available here: www.etsy.com/uk/listing/214955…
...
Also, I couldn't take good pictures of them, because light was close to non-existent, even though I used TWO light sources, and was taking said pictures at noon. The great British weather....

Cold Enameled Copper Necklace by Gardi89
Cold Enameled Copper Necklace
I've finally finished it!!!! Shaping and making of a chain took me some 10 hours of work, and possibly a bit more than that, but I've forgotten to check the time at one point, so... But I was waiting quite a bit for the hardener for resin to arrive, and then waiting for the resin to cure... But it's finally done! And I like it A LOT. It's another piece I would love to keep, but I've put it on sale anyway. If it won't sale I will have to think long and hard whether or not to re-list it.
This necklace was loosely inspired by early medieval Slavic jewellery. I made it entirely by hand of copper sheet and wire, with addition of carnelian beads and cold enamel. Both pendant and chain were oxidised to deep grey colour and then polished to create highlight. Pendant was made in chasing and repousse technique.

It's available in my etsy store here: www.etsy.com/uk/listing/214122…

Rust Dragon Eye Earrings by Gardi89
Rust Dragon Eye Earrings
Soooo... I wanted to do something with a little bit of... industrial feel to it. And I also wanted to make something featuring dragon eye. So I linked the two and came up with something like these earrings: I wanted them to resemble rusted piece of metal, and I added the eye to them, trying to make it look like rusted-over screw. I really like the outcome, and was tempted to keep them ;) Well, if they don't sell in 3 months, I won't be renewing them ;P
If someone's interested, they are available here: www.etsy.com/uk/listing/211527…

It's been a while since I last visited here... and I really, really hope that in the nearest future I won't be moving to a new place again, because months of redecorating, leaking roofs and basically just whole heaps of mess are not something I would like to experience again any time soon. And because of that all I actually managed to lost some of my supplies :/ I mean, they are somewhere in the house, but where?... that is the question! So I hope now I will be able to upload new things here somewhat regularly.

Kasia
Artist | Hobbyist | Varied
United Kingdom
So...how to start...My name's Kasia (the full name is, wait for it: Katarzyna :D and I love forcing non-Polish to have a go in pronouncing it:D I think I've already heard all kind of things starting with K and having nothing to do with the real thing :D). I'm currently living in Northern Ireland, but I hope that I will come back home someday. I've been interested in art and artisan crafts for quite some time, started designing jewellery couple of years ago, firstly only for myself, but recently decided to show my creations to wider public. And, to my greatest surprise, I found out that things that I do are even considered by some worth buying ;)
Besides of jewellery making I also love to draw, paint, sculpt and write stories. I think I won't make any mistake in saying that I utterly enjoy almost every kind of creative activities. And I am seriously interested in biology.
I have also tendency to write over-long posts and introductions, so I think I will stop, before it gets out of control ;P
Oh, and sorry for any mistake I've made while writing this.
