Geeky Etsy Finds: 8-Bit Silver

One of the things that can be hard to come by for a geeky girl is really nice, good quality, metal geek oriented jewelry. I love a pretty silver necklace, bonus points if that necklace of is of a favorite 9-bit video game character. Fortunately, now, with the Sketchy Stories Etsy shop, that’s absolutely possible.

Sketchy-Stories

What do you make?

I design, cast, and repair all forms of jewelry, but especially enjoy expanding my pixelated line of jewelry.

Who are you and/or how did you get started?

My name is Nicholas D’Amario and I got my start in jewelry through my Father who I apprenticed for. Before jewelry, I worked as a digital artist and learned many skills that I still use today in the creation of my pieces.

What makes your items great for geeks?

For those of us who grew up in the 8-bit era of gaming, these works spark memories from pixelated days of glory. They go further than nostalgia, though, for the digital nature of these pieces creates a striking and modern appearance for any to enjoy.

What do you geek out about

Video games are my passion in both work and hobby. The lower the resolution, the better!

So, there you have some of the prettiest 8-bit jewelry I think I’ve ever seen. Enjoy!

Geeky Etsy Finds: Typewriter Key Jewelry

Geeky Etsy Find: Bacterial Soaps

As a microbiologist, I know the importance of good handwashing. However, when you check out the soaps I have to show you today, you might wonder whether you are adding or removing bacteria from your hands! I assure you, the answer is removing, but the detail in these bacteria inspired soaps is pretty impressive. Ah, the things you can buy on Etsy!

Be assured that we will be back to normal posting in a few weeks!

Geeky Etsy Finds: Cat Toys!

In today’s Etsy find, we have toys. The coolest part about these toy: they are mostly for cats! Just in case you ever wanted your pet to be as geeky as you, you can introduce them to the right hobbies with toys in the shape of something related to your fandom. A little catnip, and your furry friend will be tossing the dice around with you. Check out GEEKitty and what she’s got for you today!

GEEKitty

What do you make?

I make geek-themed cat toys.  I’ve tried to cover as many nerdy bases as possible: video games, geeky TV shows, internet memes, and general dorkiness. I try to limit myself to one toy per geek theme: a snitch for Harry Potter fans, a Slurm can for Futurama fans, a Gameboy for… well, for Gameboy fans.  My toys are all hand-made and stuffed with plenty of catnip, although I’m more than happy to omit the ‘nip if the toy is for a dog, a baby, or for the purchaser.

Geeky Etsy Finds: Dreampunk

It’s our first geeky Etsy find of the new year! Before I dive into the awesomeness, I want to remind you that if you or your friend, acquaintance, or twitter buddy have a geeky Etsy that you think we should feature, drop us a line on twitter (@girlsaregeeks) or through email at girlsaregeeks@gmail.com.

Now, onto something that most geeky girls love on at least some level: jewelry with a geek twist. In this case, it is steampunk, or dreampunk which I will let our crafter Kristin (bionicunicorn) tell you about.
