ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
a good start, but I would cast it in latex. An LED, a tiny motor with bell crank for pulse and of course, a little squeezy reservoir of ichor to gently grasp and cause to ooze when expressing interest in someone.
Takuan, if you build that, I will not only buy one, I’ll blog it!
I’ll relay that to a model/miniature maker I know.
I actually own one of these. They are very light, on the larger size, and certainly a show stopper. Every time I wear it people comment. The chain hangs so that the heart is basically right over my own. I paid way too much money for what it is but I love it. I bought mine in a tiny shop in Beverly, Massachusetts for double what the price is on the linked website.
That is amazing! I want one.
You can see a picture of the heart being worn – not the red one, click on the grey one then click on it’s picture again (most of the items are grey – I think the grey brain and the red heart would hang well together !)
There is a Montreal jewelery maker who makes anatomical heart necklaces out of silver. I’m wearing one right now.
I used to have a very nice silver skeleton, about 3/4 in long (not the jointed kind, those must be larger to look at all good). Appropriate earwear for Halloween and Mardi Gras.
Soon to be featured on the no-flight list.
I think they are beautiful, but the look as if they would be quite large and too light to hang properly.
Oh dear, I may just have to take the risk and purchase it… What’s a fashionable geek girl to do???
