    My latest client commission arrived in the mail yesterday: a pair of steampunk-themed tentacle ear gauges in black plastic. They're absurdly light weight for their large size, but what makes this design so cool is that most of the gears actually rotate! The two gears embedded in the tentacles near the top of each gauge rotate on internal axles, while the gear encircling the tentacle near the bottom of each gauge rotates around the tentacle itself.

    Photographing these earrings wasn't easy, as BSF is fairly matte. I had to turn on every light in the room, enable my cell phone camera flash, AND crank the camera's light sensitivity up all the way to capture any kind of surface detail.

    Still, I won't lie - I haven't been this excited about a client commission in a very long time.
