JaegerCon Gift Exchange for flukeoftheuniverse: Original Necklace inspired by Aleksis* Kaidanovsky’s battle suit. I’m not a digital or 2d artist, so I stuck to my own medium: jewelry.
I really wanted to capture the battered and re-purposed Cold War tech. look of the Kaidanovsky’s armor, gear, and Jaeger. I started with an old processor, and painted the skull and crosses icon on. I then used copper wire to create a wire wrapped setting for the pendant. I decided to create the leather pieces with stars and studs to both evoke the militaristic setting, and provide some of the green from the move battle suit. The chain is a mix of oval jump rings, the large gold rings (an homage to the Kaidanovsky’s rings), the “gears” which are actually electrical couplings. The chunky industrial clasp really makes the whole thing come together for me.
Flukeoftheuniverse, if you want the original piece, I will ship it to you: message me with an address.
*I’m going by the movie closing credits here, for which one is which.
