Fascinating. Custom Accessories with Science Fiction Motifs
This can only mean one thing.
The aliens are here.
We’ve featured some amazing custom home décor items inspired by fantastic creatures and ancient myths on our blog. Our modern mythology of science fiction can also be a fertile source for your custom imagination. From books, films, and video games ranging from the campy to the plausible, there are billions and billions … well, maybe tens and tens of thousands of characters, stories, and worlds that would make wonderful possibilities for some über-cool, one-of-a-kind custom accessories.
Whether you ran through a small fortune in quarters playing Space Invaders in the arcades of yore or have just discovered it through an online emulation, you’ll recognize the aliens in this “Space Invaders (2006)” sculpture by Metalcraft by Alex Féthière. These “familiar forms of 8-bit fun” are made from weather-rusted, plasma-cut rectangular steel. Have an idea for another video game inspired custom sculpture? Discuss commissioning your project with Alex.
These invaders might be a little late. With little green … err, silver men (or is that a male and female alien?) and an archetypal saucer-style craft, this UFO Box by Wood Fusion Studio is absolutely charming. The spaceship is, in fact, a jewelry box made from lathe-turned canary wood with two storage compartments. The aliens are made from silver using the lost wax casting technique. The asteroid is lampwork dichroic glass. If you’d like your custom jewelry boxes from a galaxy far, far away, contact artisan Brian Thorp.
Speaking of which …
Asteroids do not concern Darth Vader, Lord of the Sith. Keep his masked visage close to you with this sterling silver Vader Pendant by MW Jewelry Design. Like light sabers, the Sri Lankan faceted rubies bring a splash of color to the Dark Side. Artisan Max Weinstein specializes in creating unique custom jewelry pieces that combine innovation and elegance, a perfect mix for your own sci-fi jewelry project.
Recognizing the iconic pop culture representations of aliens is easy, but what would alien life from another world actually look like? A collector interested in exploring possible extraterrestrial life forms commissioned this sylph brooch by 2 Roses. Metalsmiths Corliss Rose and John Lemieux Rose worked closely with their client to realize her vision in a unique, handmade combination of traditional jewelry materials, such as sterling silver, 18K gold, opals, and pearls, with unorthodox materials such as neoprene cord. “If you have something unusual you would like made into a piece of jewelry – 2Roses can do it.”
