Gifts for Geeks is a new blog series I am starting. There are so many talented artists in the world trying to sell their unique creations, and while I can’t buy from everyone I can certainly entice and tease my readers into checking them out. So I shall make it my sworn duty to hunt down those people making jewelry, clothes, art, shoes, bags, etc. that speak to my Geeky little heart.
Shannon Dickey artist of The Broken Sprocket on etsy.com is making the cutest Dr. Who and Steampunk jewelry. I saw a picture of one of her TARDIS Gears Necklaces on Facebook, and was so sad to find someone had bought it already.
I emailed her and asked if she was making more, she said yes, and then was kind enough to email me once it was posted for sale.
Squealing I quickly clicked the link and saw my prize a brand new TARDIS Gears necklace for the amazing price of $15.00. Now as many of you I was nervous about buying from an unknown source but I was willing to risk $15 for Dr. Who goodness.
I waited, impatiently as I always do, and finally my husband brought me a package from the mail- I made him stand outside and wait for it to come. I opened the yellow padded envelope and a beautiful box tied up with black cloth ribbon decorated with white gears was inside. I hadn’t just bought myself a goodie, I had bought myself a gift, a wonderful present just for me.
I opened it up and found a sweet necklace. It’s light, the gears are suspended in a clear resin which makes the TARDIS look like it is floating. I loved it, and wore it until the two year old try to take it from me and then I hid it from his evil little hands. He might work for the Master, or the Daleks.
I emailed Shannon letting her know how much I enjoyed my necklace and to please let me know when there would be more. A few weeks later she said there were more up. I waited until pay day and bought myself a matching TARDIS Gears ring, and a necklace and pocket watch for my daughter. I also received a lovely pair of TARDIS Gears earring, which are made out of bottle caps and have the cutest little skeleton keys attaching the posts to the earring piece.
I am now all decked out in Steampunk Dr. Who bling, and I love it. These are fun pieces, I’ve gotten several complements on them and I haven’t even gone to a geek convention yet- I shall be a major hit at Comic Con just wait! But what is so lovely about the treasures at The Broken Sprocket, the prices are so reasonable. Whether you’re on a budget or looking for gifts for a Dr. Who/ Steampunk loving child the prices will allow you to deck yourself or loved one out in style.
