dragon-cuffsEtsy artist Liana Turnbull Bennett of In Art Studios sculpts beautiful, magical creatures into stunning cuff bracelets. They are not only extremely detailed and life-like, but also made to last.

Using what I can only assume is magic, she casts the turquoise cuffs in super strong resin to make them water proof, heat proof, and chemical resistant. And each dragon’s spirit is represented with fiery golden yellow Swarovski rhinestones.

Check out more views and another dragon design after the jump.

deadwriters

This perfume may be called “Dead Writers”, but you don’t have to worry about smelling like a corpse when you wear it.

The blend is meant to evoke the comforting smell of an old book. The feeling of paging through yellowed copies of Hemingway, Shakespeare, Fitzgerald, Poe, and more while having a nice hot cup of tea.

Dead Writers is a unisex blend that contains black tea, vetiver, clove, musk, vanilla, heliotrope, and tobacco.

binary watch

With the release of the new Apple Watch, there was a lot of talk about the more expensive version being some sort of status symbol –– because spending over $10,000 on a wearable device that will be obsolete in a year is so cool.

There’s another school of thought that it’s not the price of an item, but the depth of nerdery that makes it more awesome.

This new Binary Watch by Texas-based engineer Jordan aka Njneer falls squarely into that second category. It combines a bare PCB with a 9″ multicolored or gray ribbon cable as a strap. Two rows of LED’s display the hour and minute or the day and date.

Plus, the fact that it can physically harm you adds a badass element of danger.

It should be obvious, but this product is about as far from ESD safe and waterproof as you can get. All of the components, the circuit board, and the battery are exposed with no housing, leaving them susceptible to water and hazardous ESD conditions. I have personally worn one for months with no issues, but you should probably not wear it outdoors when it’s raining heavily or when you’re standing next to a Tesla Coil, Jacob’s Ladder, or EMP generator.

Inspired by Jim Henson’s The Dark Crystal, these Kira fairy wings by Etsy seller TheFancyFairy are absolutely magical. The delicate wings are made from lightweight aluminum sheets, iridescent film, laminate vinyl, and clear elastic to give the effect of slightly torn butterfly veins.

And these particular wings are getting major attention having recently been worn by Barbara Fialho in the Victoria’s Secret 2014 Fashion Show (an even larger version was worn by model Eniko Mihalik).

The greatest news though is that you can order fairy wings customized in almost any color or style to fit your particular costume or character.
