I've heard A LOT about RWBY, and finally watched a bit of it myself.  Not bad at all!  I've been getting a few requests for RWBY themed jewelry, so I figured I'd give it a shot!

I thought I'd start the line with something inspired by Ruby's scythe, the Crescent Rose.  A beautifully designed weapon, if I do say so myself, even when simplified to make it more affordable as a hand crafted piece.  I may do a more detailed version sometime in the future, if commissioned to do so, or for another reason.  Time will tell.

This piece is hand crafted from sterling silver sheet and wire, and copper sheet and tubing. It's made up of 8 different metal components sawed out and filed by hand, then soldered together with sterling silver solder. It measures 2 1/4 inches in height by 1 3/4 inches in width. It has 2 nickel pin posts on the backside, one near the tip of the scythe blade, and another on the 'trigger'. 2 nick plated clutches are included to secure the pin in place.

The piece was sandblasted to give it a even finish, the dropped in a tumbler to semi-polish it. This signature finish of mine not only looks good, but also helps to hide fingerprints, smudges and minor scratches. Parts of the staff and blade were painted with black antiquing. Afterwards, the front of the pin was sprayed with a strong lacquer that'll help preserve the finish and prevent tarnishing.

More RWBY themed work to come!

A nice change for you! I'd actually love to see an Utena sword. They were one of the first anime's I ever watched.

Hell, YEAH!  Now I seriously wish I had my own credit card....
This is such a cool piece, and that's not just because I like RWBY ^^

More RWBY themed work to come~?? Oooh, are we going to get it in Red-White-Black-Yellow, order? Like the color trailers?? Does that mean we get Weiss's weapon next? (not going to spoil the weapon's name, just in case there are some yet to be fans who hate being spoiled!)

Not entirely sure I'll do any other weapon themed pieces like this one.  Seems to be too expensive.

Aw...But I guess that makes sense. The main character's weapons are quite intricate. How about their emblem then??

Whoa, nice!  That's really, really detailed, even "simplified"!  I haven't seen any of RWBY yet (I plan to eventually) but I'd buy it even without having seen it.
