If you don’t immediately recognize the exquisite AURYN amulet pictured above, get out from my sight and never come back. For serious.
… Oh good, you’re still here! For those of us who grew up on the wealth of fantasy films released in the 1980s, the Neverending Story “orin” necklace (as its often misspelled) is an unmistakable symbol of all things Fantasia. Worn by Atreyu (excuse me whilst my inner 8 year old swoons), the AURYN amulet guides him on his quest to save the creatures of Fantasia from “The Nothing”, a void-like plague that consumes everything in its path.
In the book version of The Neverending Story, AURYN grants wishes and simultaneously drains memories from its keeper, Bastian. But while this incredible replica by Plumevine may not offer the same powers, it’s absolutely captivating to behold. Hand-carved and painted from resin clay, the amulet’s detail is stunning – from the lustrous, metal-like paints, to the dual-toned chatons used for the serpent eyes, to the antique look of the included brass-tone chain. Sadly, the original AURYN amulet has sold, but Plumevine offers other similarly inspired designs (though it’s likely another AURYN replica will be listed soon). This is one truly unique item that any Neverending Story fan would treasure!
Aliens are such sly buggers. They stealthily swarm into our atmosphere, confounding us with mysterious lights in the night sky and leaving eerie crop circles in our fields by day. But to what end? I’ll admit: inspiring conspiracy theories in their notoriously suggestible human friends must be a hoot, but surely there’s a greater plan afoot?
If you believe the stories told by Masquefaire’s spaceship earrings, the message is clear: it’s not us they’re after. But our livestock, automobiles and extinct species? Beam ‘em up, Scotty!
I can’t get enough of these ever-so cheeky and whimsically freaky earrings; makes me long for the ’80s, when you could barely last a day without hearing someone using that classic catchphrase, “where’s the beef?” If I’d only had a pair of these alien earrings, I’d touch them softly, then cast a furtive glance at the asker, a finger pointed solemnly toward the sky.
The truth is out there. ;)
Betcha never thought that a bespectacled belle from galaxies far, far away could be so adorably kawaii! The geek alien necklace by Antisparkle Apparel is perfect for a Sci-Fi Sally no matter her age; I can see this hanging ’round the neck of a 10 year old just as easily as one a few years (okay, decades) her senior. The delicate pink ball chain gives the girlie alien charm a sweetly feminine touch that seems to say:
“Come closer! I promise won’t bite, or even harvest your organs for intergalactic scientific research … much.” =^_^=
With technology developing so fast these days, bracelets that consist of thin chains, annoying rusty clasps, and small, easily removed beads are becoming old hat. The geeky jewelry wearing public craves something edgy – something hip and electronic. I think this amazing little bracelet does just the trick. It features sterling silver findings and green malachite beads, but it’s true appeal is that it’s made from real circuit boards, making it a great gift and fashionable must-have for any geek girl in your life. It could be worn during a formal event for a touch of geek chic, on a normal hum-drum day, in the bedroom, or during a rigorous game of Minecraft. The possibilities are endless! And if that isn’t enough, the copper on the circuit boards is given a special coating so it will keep its shine. Think of it as an amazing way to look nerdy and trendy … and maybe to send a flash of light into the eyes of people you don’t like. A real triple threat!
Ever played The Sims and wished that life could be controlled by a click? Are you a fan of every point-and-click game you can think of? Wish you could run around and physically click on things just like some kind of realistic video game character? Well you’ll probably get some strange looks and end up in some sort of wacky situation for doing so, but now you can have it your way! This adorable 8-bit mouse cursor necklace is just the thing to satisfy mid-day clicking urges, as well as flaunt your love for arrows and/or mice. You could also walk around pretending somebody is controlling you with the arrow and insist that any groping you do is simply beyond your control. Or if groping isn’t your thing, just “click” on a few people until one of them tells you the information you need to continue your quest.
Or, y’know … until they threaten to call the cops.
