  • I ADORE Doctor Who.

    Sometimes I think the only reason I started playing with silver clay was to satisfy my geeky side :-)


    I have some official BBC moulds and used them to create mini replica Daleks, K9, Cyberman helmets and of course the TARDIS from fine silver*.

    Then, in 2021 after years of being too nervous to create an image of a Weeping Angel, lest I become one, The Doctor survived the experience, so I made a couple. One as a pendant, one as a pin.

    Make your choice, and also choose your finish. I think patinated is more authentic, but you can have one without.

     

    The Cyberman / Dalek / TARDIS and K-9 are available in my other listing.

     

    The listing price is, for 1 Weeping Angel only in your choice of design and finish; please remember that, like the real angels, mine are individually created, so each will differ slightly.

     

    ***I make these to order, usually within a week - I don't usually have lots ready, although I am trying to keep three or four at all times, I have a number listed because these are very popular at the moment*** 

     

    I prefer all my pendants to be patinated, giving the TARDIS the extra touch of batteredness that I believe she warrants, and the other pieces the look of having engaged in battle, but if you would prefer one all super shiny and new looking; let me know; If I'm put of stock these will take me up to 10 days to make and dispatch - if you are in a hurry, message me to see where I'm at with them. Bow tie, braces, sonic or super long scarf when you unwrap it, optional :-)

    Since making my first batch, I've got slightly more proficient with the application of liver of sulphur, and can aim for a blue tint to your patination if you prefer. I remember Dr Who in black and white, so both work for me, but if you'd like more of a blue than black tinge to the patination, just tell me in your comments and I will do my best.

     
    (I like to wear my TARDIS when I feel I might want to be rescued / whisked away, and my Dalek when I want something scary in my corner!)


    Dimensions are  (approximately) 

    Weeping Angel 20.5 x 32mm
    TARDIS       30mm x 16mm 
    Dalek          28 mm x 17mm 
    K9               34mm x 20mm
    Cyberman (helmet)      25mm x 22mm

     

    If you choose a pendant, your order will include a delicate chain, 18 or 16 inches (40.5cm or 46cm).

      

    Notes:
    * This fine silver is ArtClaySilver, which starts life as silver dust, reclaimed from the refinement process, in Japan, and then with the addition of a natural binding agent, becomes a clay. I can then mould and form it as one would a  traditional clay, firing it on a gas hob, or kiln. At this point the binder burn away, the clay shrinks approximately 10% and becomes 99.9% silver. I have (rather rubbish!) videos of this process on my facebook page and Youtube channel.

     

    **I've been using Eco silver since 2016, but now all the silver elements are certified recycled by my bullion dealer - it's made from the waste and offcuts returned and reclaimed in the jewellery process, which means it's environmental impact is significantly lower than if mined afresh.

     

    DON'T BLINK!!!. Fine silver Weeping Angel

    • Sterling Silver will eventually oxidise or tarnish. It's a natural process that can be slowed down by regular wear and by keeping unworn items away from the atmosphere. If you leave your jewellery out on display, this oxidisation will be faster.  You can polish up your items, with a soft cloth, some silver polish, or a buffing cloth such as Town Talk, which is readily available from any high street jewellers in the UK

      Fine silver is 99.9% silver, and because of this the tarnish rate is much, much slower. Again, a buff should do the job for polishing it back up. If I have patinated your silver already, be gentle when buffing!

      Each piece should stand up to regular wear, but , as with all jewellery, please remove it before washing, using chemicals or applying perfume etc

      Apply body lotion and perfume a few minutes before putting on your jewellery to help slow down tarnish

      The sterling silver used in these items was sold to me by my bullion dealer as certified recycled.

      The gemstones I use have been sold to me by reputable dealers as untreated (unless stated specifically in the listing). They are a natural, organic creation from the earth and each one will be slightly different. You can see examples of this on my Facebook page.
      I select the stones that I think go together best for each project, hence my comments that each item is individual.
