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.

: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. www.etsy.com/shop/gemslots

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.

Water Droplets Octopus Weave: Deep Sea Edition by NikidaEve
Water Droplets Octopus Weave: Deep Sea Edition
The only difference is the change in backdrop from the original found here:  Water Droplet Octopus Weave by NikidaEve  </b>

:bulletblue: This nautical piece was made for a local client! She has a bright royal blue dress that this will be paired with, so silver is a predominant color in this piece. This bubbly octopus tentaclesque weave will add some funk to any outfit, casual or formal.

:bulletblue: Materials include handcrafted steel links, and blue anodized aluminum links. Sizes featured in this bold piece can be found in the handcut 1/8", 3/16", and 9/16" steel links ranging from 14-20g wire. Aluminum can be found in 3/16"and 1/8" 20g and 18g wire to fade the silver fluidly through this tentacle! There are blue and clear accent swavorski crystal in this necklace but the faceted tear crystals are more glass by a brand I am not familiar with and shine a little differently under natural lighting.

:bulletblue::star::iconfeelingfreeplz: Follow the multicolored sheep to visit Gemslots LLC on Etsy!: www.etsy.com/shop/Gemslots to request your custom wares and augment your style! Premade items will enchant those who gaze upon them. Notes and Etsy requests are open for any items you may need. The holidays are drawing near!

Purple Chandelier by NikidaEve
Purple Chandelier
This was made for a local client! She needed it to pair with a lovely eggplant shaded dress. As requested, a lightweight chandelier styled pendant in a multitude of purple hues. Silver colored findings accent the swavorksi crystal, making for a quaint necklace. This is one of my more simplistic, yet elegant piece.

I don't take many self shots. That probably why my ID hadn't been updated in two years. I probably won't upload this to main dev ID but I've had a lot of questions about my hair and it isn't quite short anymore it's actually quite long and in an ombré style color.

: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.
