Purky Brass n Glass Collection


“Opening salvo in a collection of handfused glass and custom laser cut brass jewellery.

Each glass cabochon is made in Bernice or Bertha (the Purky kilns) and is attached to a laser cut brass item.

Gears are designed by Purky Products and laser cut on a giant bond villain laser machine.

much love

Getting Ready for the Cardiff Steampunk Market :)

Very soon, I shall be trading at the Cardiff Steampunk Market

I am rather excited about this so I did a quick stock check and I am a tad low on my Gearpunk range.

This range is inspired by Steampunk but moves more across to revering the gears, I am officially obcessed with gears….

Anyways, I have run out of material now (waiting for a polymer delivery tomoz) so at 1am have decided to call it a night.

Heres whats been made so far!

I shall pop them in to cure and pop myself into bed!

Mwah everyone! xx

One Year Ago

My heart was broken and I was rather scared. Losing the man I loved was terrible enough but I would have to find somewhere to live, gather my belongings, avoid conflicts..Could I afford it, was I clever enough to find somewhere?

The answer, one year on from the heart break, is Yes. I am struggling but I have a rather cool (if cluttered) apartment that I share with my beloved Phileous Mogg. (insert Meow here) I have rediscovered my inner artist

I was also, one year ago, working on Droma and writing daily. I want to return to that state of productivity. Currently I am working 12 hour days at my physically demanding job which is leaving very little space for my purkiness. However, writing can be done in tiniest snippets and those snippets can be woven together on the quiet days.

My three dimensional creativity and my writing are intrinsically linked. I love making real world artifacts from my stories, the dragon hatchlings being a case in point.

So what was the point of this post then? Really to reflect upon the positive things that have happened in the last year.

Moving into Purky Towers, Retrieving Phil, Trading successfully at the Chocolate Festival – Cads & Bounders – London Steampunk Market – Hogswatch – Discworld Spring Fling – Pop up Chocolate Garden, Discovering Gearpunk, rediscovering my love of Cyber, Meeting so many new amazing people.

It is Wednesday morning and I have already clocked in 33 hours at work this week. The grand plan is to work myself into the ground over summer to build up some financial momentum and use it to do something special.

I have so many exciting ideas and though my internal well is rather empty at the moment, a few days of resting will top me back up.

Best be off, time to go to work 🙂

Much love Purkites

Gearpunk Tunnels

Just a quickie, these are 12mm stainless steel flesh tunnels that have been Purky Gearpunked.

They coincide with the piece I made as a gift for a friend and use the same mokume nendo slab and fractured leaf.

Padding out the interior of the tunnel to make the end plates fit was an interesting challenge.

These pieces are not quite as highly finished as I would hope them to be but illustrate and exciting new Purky direction 🙂

Plus, I hope he liked them ….

Massive amounts of Purky loving!

Purky Gearpunk

I do not like steampunk as an aesthetic…. Actually I feel guilty about it because on paper, it is so damned cool?

Anyways, steam is not my thing but Gears?

My gosh Gears make crazy, I love them!

I could literally cover my home in gear murals, even carve ornated tudor style plaster ceiling bosses in the shape of gears.

So, in celebration of the humble gear and cog, I dub my new style….GearPunk

There will be experiments, many many experiments before GearPunk hits the Purky lineup but it is coming sometime this year….mwah ha ha ha

Purky love to you all xxx
