Celtic Inspiration

Spyralle Triskelion Necklace

Spyralle Triskelion Necklace

The Triskelion pieces were created for Genre’s Celtic round and will be available at the event for just a couple more days at a substantial discount. I chose to stay away from knotwork motifs, much as I love the art form, and look for something perhaps less known. The triple spiral was widely used in Celtic art but is not so famous in modern times. – and it was perfectly suited to this fractal coil mapped to a 3-fold symmetry.

These jewelry pieces come with a HUD that offers a selection of textures for both the enamels and scones, giving an enormous number of variations.

Some additional Triskelion pieces are in progress, though not finished in time for Genre. They will be released later.

Sylvia & Sugar

Spyralle Sylvia - October

Spyralle Sylvia – October

Leaves are turning all colors where I live. The maples are going off like fireworks.  It’s one grand celebration before everything goes quiet for winter.

Last year I took dozens of pictures of individual leaves, with this dress in mind. Sylvia adds a sweeping skirt of silken leaves to a brass studded leather bodice – a gesture to your urban Seelie’s sylvan roots.

Spyralle Sylvia - Maple Sugar

Spyralle Sylvia – Maple Sugar

Sylvia is Spyralle’s exclusive for the autumn Spoonful of Sugar festival, now running. Spoonful of Sugar (SOS) is a big semi-annual event in SL, raising money to support Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), also known as Doctors Without Borders, an international humanitarian organization that provides medical aid to war-torn and developing countries. Spyralle has been a supporter and participant in SOS since it began a year ago.

Maple Sugar Sylvia is a special edition with all proceeds going to MSF. The yellow leaves tinged with red are my favorites. You can see them on October, too.

November Sylvia is also a 100% donation to MSF at Spoonful of Sugar. The other colors are providing a 50% donation.

Spyralle Sylvia - September

Spyralle Sylvia – September

I do like the fiery red and orange maple leaves, but I also love the blaze-yellow ones, especially the ones that still have some green. They look like scraps of sunshine on the grass.

Spyralle Sylvia - Frost

There is also something visually intriguing about what happens to the autumn landscape as the fire colors and summer green fade away to soft browns and tans and greys. We crunch the faded leaves piled among the trees when we walk in the bare woods of late autumn.

Spyralle Sylvia - Blue Moon

And then we begin to imagine the palette of winter nights – purple shadows on snow and the leaves of summer cased in ice, under the moon.

Spyralle Persian Lamps at the Renaissance Fair 2017

Mieville’s annual Renaissance Faire has commenced, with music, dancing, games and artisan shops and booths in a brand new setting.  Spyralle brings a cluster of new lanterns in the Persian style to our tent in the marketplace, just across the stream from a lovely grove of trees in their fall colours.

Eyes and Tentacles

The Watcher is watching...

The Watcher is watching…

I was traveling and did not get a post done for the Lovecraft Festival during the event, which is unfortunate because it turned out to be one of the most enjoyable events of the summer and one I totally enjoyed creating for.

The Watcher Beacon, our exclusive new release for LoveFest, was planned from the start as a companion piece to the Shore Beacon created for the Sea Faring round of Genre in July. Both are based on spirals formulated with the exact same math, one applied to the surface of the tower and this one forming the tower itself in the form of rusty tentacles. Instead of a civilized light, this beacon has a rotating Eye with a tentacle-tail, and instead of flashing on and off, this one … blinks! A rusty eyelid covers it briefly at random times – another bit of magic from Tai. The owner can change to any one of 9 eyes with the HUD provided.

We found ourselves slightly entranced by scary eyes, so we made a whole series of jewelry for a new gacha at the festival…

Spyralle Eye2Eye Jewelry Gacha

Spyralle Eye2Eye Jewelry Gacha

One set prize, the purple full set, is the ultrarare. The fiery orange eyes, separately, are the rares, and a few uncommons are mixed among the remaining pieces. Believe it or not, the spookiest one may be the more or less “normal” blue eye. It lends a surrealist air to the jewelry that is both 20th Century Dada and disturbingly Lovecraftian.

Both the beacon and the gacha will return to Spyralle in the near future, well in time for Halloween. We can’t promise the same for the two gifts we had at LoveFest.

Spyralle Deep Night Window Gift

Does it look into an underwater abyss or Deep Space? Spyralle’s Deep Night Window  wall decoration was our prize for the hunt in the underwater mystery adventure at LoveFest. I’m hanging one in my garden for October.

The little bauble shown above was our shop gift at LoveFest. Wear your Enlightenment. Such fun! It may reappear at Spyralle later.  Hair by Emo-tions. The goth skin, a gorgeous classic from Tuli, is long unavailable, as is the lace neckpiece from much-missed Pixel Dolls. The jacket is unreleased Spyralle.
