This absolutely wonderful Star Trek Galileo Shuttlecraft necklace is the latest by Paul Michael Design. We’ve featured many of his nerdy jewelry designs in the past, and he shows no signs of slowing down. The shuttle opens like a locket to reveal six gems to represent the passengers in either yellow, blue, or red. You get to pick which colors you want in your shuttle, but better not pick too many redshirts or the whole thing will go down in flames.

disney tiara 1

Disney stores sell Disney princess tiaras, but they’re just inexpensive costume pieces with plastic parts. What if they made real gem or crystal covered metal tiaras for each of the princesses? Tumblr user Eclectic Charms has plenty of ideas for them. She’s designed a collection of elaborate tiaras and crowns inspired by the likes of Elsa, Rapunzel, Snow White, and more. She hopes that Disney or another official source will take interest and work with her to create actual products soon.

arc reactor ring

If you like Iron Man, this is the ring for you. The latest accessory from Paul Michael Designs features Tony Stark’s arc reactor in a more delicate setting than the Iron Man armor. It’s made from palladium and custom cut light blue sapphires. Yes, you probably need to be as wealthy as Tony Stark to afford it, but the quality and design makes it worth it.

nautilus necklace 5

One of the most memorable scenes from Jules Verne’s 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea is when the giant squid attacks the Nautilus. Artist Marty Magic has brought that moment to life with a lovely pendant available in silver and bronze. She worked with her husband to create the intricate piece; he printed a 3D image of the Nautilus, and she sculpted the tiny squid from wax. The result is an incredibly neat and wearable piece of literature.

Woodworker Peter Brown created an easy-to-follow YouTube tutorial on how to make a ring using a bunch of colored pencils. It might take some practice to craft one as fine as the one Peter made, but I have confidence in you! Good luck!
