Steampunk Fantasy Griffin by clockwork-zero Steampunk Fantasy Griffin by clockwork-zero
This beautifully detailed Griffin necklace combines some of my favorite fantasy elements along with my steampunk jewelry. I've always loved griffins - the wings of an eagle, the body of a lion and the head of an eagle - since they are such magical creatures. Now I've designed this piece to reflect my childhood facination :D

The griffin is silver plated - but the garnet at the bottom is set in sterling silver. :) There's more details over here on the listing: [link]


I've finally put up some new work on Etsy. [link] but its been really really busy getting things in the post in order to ship before Xmas. whew! Most things are still in the "safe zone" for shipping from Canada = at least for the next few days.

I remember seeing this when you posted this on twitter. I agree Griffins are really great creatures and so is this piece. Congrats on the 200th sale too btw! :)

For me, griffins and sphinxes were childhood fascinations. ^^

Amazing work. :clap:

I suspect there was a series of books about Griffins I really liked. or maybe just the concept. :D
I always had a clear vision of them :)

Must be those lion bodies?

Thanks for your comment! good to know I'm not alone.

Me, I think it was the concept really. :3
The combination of avian and mammals in reality would be a tad, difficult to achieve methinks. ^^

Ooh~ Possibly. :3

You're very welcome. ^0^
Oh, no worries, I've got another friend who's mad about them. So you're not alone at all. :3
