Gauntlet Series: Gods of the Ages

Each gauntlet is handcrafted, and made for adjustable and comfortable wear. They are inspired by gods of greek mythology (one being a self made name, not relavent to the lore) and adorned with swavorski crystals. They are combined with anodized aluminum in an array of colors and designs accented with stainless steel black and silver scales that have been handpolished for a powerful glow. These pieces are connected with handmade galvanized links for flexibility and serpent/dragon hide like feel.

Apothecary Supplies

:bulletblack:These lovely jars are all symbolic of the potion you'd like to carry. For weary travelers, some potions to keep handy would be endurance, stamina, health, mana, and some potions like rejuvenation and speed! Other potions may be poisons and vials of rank intentions but always good to ward off enemies if a surprise battle arises.

These pieces are more into the style of Steampunk- old fashioned and have a unique feel of clockworks and feather.

I also do my own wrapped pieces with galvanized wire to create unique and stylish pieces. I do not use adhesives or anything, all designs are freefloating.

Chainmaille is a great and old style in jewelry and crafting. Below are links to my deviations that are in relation to this craft. All galvanized steel (silver) links are created by me and cut by hand to ensure the best quality and comfort. I've also dabbled in making colored links.

United States
:damphyr::bulletblack: I am known by Nikida Eve or Sam.
:damphyr::bulletred:I am a realist that has a knack for my craft. It's art therapy and a way of life more than just metal and wire.
:damphyr::bulletorange: I love self education and learning as I go, so please leave some feedback, or say hello.
:damphyr::bulletyellow:I'm a gamer nut with an addictive personality and passion. I tend to be overly emotional (not just weepy but happy, anger, apprehensive, all of that is in extreme doses) but I am driven, a hermit, and slightly neurotic.
:damphyr::bulletgreen: I am the Steel Madien of Gemslots LLC.
:damphyr::bulletblue: I am always open for commissions.
:damphyr::bulletpurple: am a "lore whore". I love history, but have a terrible memory, so my passions come in spurts when my short attention span will allow me to focus on that time period's events.
:damphyr::bulletpink:I give out alot of llamas. You don't have to give them back, I just like spreading the llama cheer.
:damphyr::bulletblack: but they are appreciated!
:damphyr::bulletred:Note or visit my Etsy for details for international shipping prices.
:damphyr::bulletorange: I am always willing to talk shop, designs, and socialize, but I will not make tutorials. I have dabbled in them before, but I'm such a perfectionist and tinker with each design, that it's too tedious to keep up with updates on new designs, and resolving issues with old ones. I'm more than willing to guide you in the right directions, and will help best to my ability, but I am self taught. My methods may not be the quickest or the most efficient, but I take major pride in my work.
:damphyr::bulletyellow: Critiques and/or criticism is highly encouraged. Nice comments are beautiful things, but I have a competitive personality. I tend to want to "one up" or "show up" naysayers who don't believe I can do it.
:damphyr::bulletgreen: I am a workaholic.

:damphyr::bulletblue:deviantWEAR sizing preference: Small
:damphyr::bulletpurple:I also have an Etsy:

These would be private sales through PayPal instead of da. I also have darkroom prints too! Please note Me if you're interested! It would be greatly appreciated and those who participate and help out will get a feature and I'll leave it up for a month! 
If you're cannot participate please recommend a friend and if they mention that you referred them you'll be included in the feature as well! 

I am closing in on 50k pageviews!OMG MOAR POEMS!  I am offering a little giveaway for the person who can screen cap the 50,000! The deviant who captures has 24 hours to send a note including the screencap to collect on one of 2 different options! There are Rainbow Road earrings for yourself or as a gift, or a men's/woman's sized byzantine bracelet!:squee: Boogie!  (you can pick either size featured below)

Byzantine Bracelets by NikidaEveRainbow Road by NikidaEve

Normally I don't partake in the pageview milestones, but I have wonderful deviants  that I've come to know and grateful for the attention my gallery has had over the last year. I love deviantART! It's a joy working with other artisans and getting to make some sick projects. There are some shipping restrictions, I try to limit to Ireland, the UK, Canada, The U.S., Mexico, PR, amongst others. Please inquire further if you are going to be watching for the contest! Even if you are close (50,001, 50,002 up to 10) send the screencap. If the spot on 50k is not reported in the 24 hours, it will go to the second closest reported.

I have a list of projects I'm wrapping up, but always open to new ideas and commissions. I do have a little backlog, so delay times are within reason, but a little more extended than normal. Once these are cleared, I'm looking into seeing about becoming more active in the dA community! Time to delve headfirst into my creative side and allow the drafting to begin!

Happy crafting and Good Luck!
