Working mini Telescope by clockwork-zero Working mini Telescope by clockwork-zero
Mini working Telescope!
its great for a steampunk, a pirate or someone who wants to be a spy ;) hehe
I invested in a few of these - one sold already - but they are just great. I paired them up with little charms - this one has a very gear like wheel. (a fellow kept insisting its a gear - but I think its a ship wheel... but hey. whatever keeps people happy!)

they are on a long antiqued bronze/brass coloured chain thats nickel free.

but the best part.. they collapse!
there's more photos on my [link] site of this one folded up. Fully extended its 8cm long (just over 3 inches) and closed up its just 4cm (just a bit over 2 inches!). Ever so cool :D

I'm good. Lots of schoolwork to do...
How about yourself?

I've always thought telescopes were really cool. I've just never really learned how to use one correctly. lol
So it actually works? You can put your eye up to it and everything?

I know I haven't been commenting a lot on your works, but I think this is definitely one of my favourites. :D I love telescopes, and interactive jewelry is awesomely fun. It would look amazing on a costume. Hell, I'd wear it all the time. :D

Awesomesauce, where'd you get the telescopes? :love: I must have one...
(might as well throw in my reference librarian 2 cents :lol:)
That would probably have to be a ship's wheel, due to the fact that the spokes are on the outside, rather than all one piece (if it were a gear, it wouldn't be that strong) Also, the spokes are rounded on the ends :giggle:

I had to special order the telescopes :D but wow... cool! see this is why I like DA. there's always someone who can tell me interesting things :D I thought it looked more like a ship wheel. but hey.. not worth arguing about. I like how it looks period. Plus it reminds me of the turning knobs on my childhood telescope :D

If I had the money, I would compeltely and utterly buy at least one... Maybe for Christmas if there're any left :woohoo:
And then maybe I can get a real full size one... :heart:

I love that other shot you did with the sky background but the leaves here are just gorgeous! I love this piece too, it's so unique.

i might just change out the one to point to the sky on my etsy site. I think it is a bit more.. interactive?
