Sleeping Echinerpeton intermedium by Gardi89
Sleeping Echinerpeton intermedium
Echinerpeton is one of the oldest known synapsids (if not the oldest), and is represented only by one species, intermedium, known from six fragmentary fossils. It was rather small animal (about 50cm long, I think. I checked it size, and even found some information, but right now I just don't remember), with tall neural spines, which means that it probably had a sail on its back, like the better known Dimetrodon.
It lived during the Late Carboniferous epoch.
It's on my redbubble:…
Etched Copper And Titanium Wolf Pendant by Gardi89
Etched Copper And Titanium Wolf Pendant
I impulsively bought some titanium and had no idea what to do with it. Well, this is one piece I came up with. Titanium isn't the easiest metal to work with, but the colours you can get! I love them! And it can be coloured with a torch flame, as I did here, contrary to niobium, which has practically the same colour range, but it can only be anodised (as far as I know).
The front of the pendant is etched copper, and you can see titanium through cut outs in it. Both parts are riveted together. The pendant measures 2cm x 2.5cm, and comes with a sterling silver chain.
This was fun to make!
Wolf Song Etched Copper Cuff by Gardi89
Wolf Song Etched Copper Cuff
The second cuff I actually finished. And that's the third attempt at it: the first, I decided, was rubbish, the second... not so much, but I didn't like the etching in one place, and that's the one I thought was passable. Anyway, it's already sold, so I guess someone liked it more than me;) And the customer also wanted an engraving added on the inside. After making that engraving I decided that I either need to learn hand-engraving at last, or buy rotary tool equipped with flexi shaft.  I'm getting better at hand-engraving, but it's going slow (straight lines, I can make, no problem. Curves, however... will take more time to master. And circles, especially.) Buying something with flexi shaft was faster option, and I can't wait for my new toy to arrive :D Sorry for the quality of the engraving picture. It's already somewhere in Australia, so I definitely won't take another one.
Raven Song Etched Copper Cuff by Gardi89
Raven Song Etched Copper Cuff
Finally finished! Made of copper, etched, and oxidised. And also somewhat of a guinea pig: one of the first pieces I used renaissance wax on. I hope it will not tarnish, because with the price tag of that wax, if it doesn't work, I will have a fit. I'm a bit apprehensive, because I used some other wax before on other piece, and it did tarnish underneath. But fingers crossed!

It's 15cm (~6in) long, 2.5cm(~1in) wide, and with 2.5cm opening.…
Homotherium Etched Copper Earrings by Gardi89
Homotherium Etched Copper Earrings
And the second piece with extinct fauna: Homotherium earrings, to match the necklace. The image of the cat's head I made in the same manner as with the necklace. It was an interesting exercise: to fit it on a 1cm wide strip of metal. And here I also played a bit with the saw, and also managed to cut each earring in one go. I think I'm finally getting somewhere with my sawing ;)
Available here:…
This one will be very short: I just saw an order confirmation Etsy sent me. Apparently, I'm going to ship one pair of earrings to Australia, of all places. And here I thought orders form USA were from far away... And that's what's really cool about selling via internet: you can send something you made with your own hands to places you personally have never been to! Happy dance time!

Artist | Hobbyist | Varied
United Kingdom 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.
