Gauntlet Series: Gods of the Ages

Gemslots: Fist of Nikida by NikidaEveCommission: Posiden's Fist of Sapphires by NikidaEveCommission: Healing Fist of Mother Gaia by NikidaEveCommission: Healing Fists of Mother Gaia part Duex by NikidaEveScalemail: Gauntlet by NikidaEveGauntlet of the Ages: Refracted Hippocampus Scales by NikidaEveCOMMISSION: MLP: Princess Luna's Cutie Mark by NikidaEveCOMMISSION: Gauntlet: Warfist of Ares by NikidaEveCOMMISSION: Gauntlet of Elven Militia by NikidaEveShadows of Cereberus: Guards by NikidaEveFrosted Mage Maille for Glass Cannons by NikidaEve
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.

Steam Powered Beauty

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.

: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:
