New Lunar Republic Pendant by ChaosDrop New Lunar Republic Pendant by ChaosDrop
This one turned out pretty good, so I figured I'd list it as a "sold as is".
Ancient Bronze (Copper & Tin alloy, tarnish-resistant, strong, durable, lead and zinc free), 55mm x 39mm x 3.5mm
Sold, but others will soon be available here: www.etsy.com/shop/ChaosDrop

Notes:
* I will be selling more of these in the not-so-distant future on Etsy, however they will be made on different equipment, and will therefore be different from this one, they will also be available in Sterling Sliver, Gold, and Ancient Bronze.

* I will also be offering other alliance symbols in the coming weeks!

Thank you for looking!

I want to buy a Sterling silver of the "New Lunar Republic Type I Pendant".. Will you be able to start working on it right away if I order now?

Yep, any orders made outside of the IGG are top priority and done straight away, production time is usually 1-2weeks.

Another question, is the sterling silver version a fully sterling version or a layer of sterling silver? I do not want it to loose it's color if worn extensively because it's a layer..

And do you have more pictures on the different bronze color types, such as white bronze/ancient bronze/yellow bronze?

100% solid sterling silver, that's why they are so much more expensive, a lot of sliver is being used.

I presently don't have the equipment needed to do plating but plan on having it in a couple of months. When I do I'll probably stop selling Yellow and Silver Bronze and offer gold and sliver plated Ancient bronze instead, as ancient bronze is much easier to work with than yellow and silver.

As for a picture of the different types bronze I presently am yet to have any single item around in all different metal options, but here is a picture that shows Yellow bronze->Silver Bronze->Ancient Bronze

I have a question, is it possible to order a type 1 (hollow through) with a type 2's ring attachment?

I really love the 2 ring attachment of the type 2 but I want the see through of the type 1

And what would that cost in sterling silver?

Yep, I am willing to do all kinds of modifications for small fees for the extra time. Though for such a small change I'd be willing to just do it for you as freebie.

So just the normal price for the Sterling Silver Type I Pendant ($160), and you can still just order the type I on Etsy. Just add a reminder in the "Note to ChaosDrop" section on checkout page so I know it's you.

Just to clarify, I don't mean before I have ordered/paid but what I ment was, do you have the time to start working on it as soon as I lay the order? and how long do they normally take?

any way you can modify this into a pin?

The best way to get a pin variety of this one is by supporting mine and my fathers IGG: igg.me/at/fim-alliance-pins/x/…

As if it goes through I will be able to make a single batch of pins to be able to sell at cool princes. Other wise I have to sell pins for $50~65(Bronze)... Though that's only true if you want a Silver-brass pin. If you wanted a Sterling Silver or Gold pin then it would have to be made as a custom order. Pin size on the IGG is a fixed 1 1/2" (width). Where as  custom pins well much more expensive can be made to your likening on all 3-axies (width x height and depth). Large sizes will effect price more on sliver/gold but not much on bronze)

P/s Custom bronze pins can be made in Silver Bronze, Yellow Bronze, or Ancient bronze.

When I finally get all the pipeline kinks and real overhead costs worked out I'll be selling stuff here: www.etsy.com/shop/ChaosDrop

Though at this rate it may take me a couple more weeks than I planed before I can start selling openly as I am having issues finding ways to keep my cost under $100 for ancient bronze. The way that I may wind up getting around it, if nothing else is going to be to do "sand blasted" finishes (Which actually look kind of cool, but not as professional) at the $75 mark for the ancient bronze versions and only offer a shiny hand polished finishes option on the sliver.

If you are interested in buying one before I get a "market" version made, I don't expect my cost/overhead of dealing with sliver to change much at all so I'd be more than happy to start making you one now if you would like. For Starling Sliver it would be $150 + Shipping.

if only you did stainless steel... the only material i wear because it keeps its shine, can't be bent, and is cheaper material than gold and silver.

:iconchaosdrop:
ChaosDrop Featured By Owner Jan 23, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yeah Stainless Steel can be pretty cool though way pricy to work with in casting.
It's cheaper than Gold And Sliver when you are cutting or milling it, or if you are a massive company, but for small batch casting it would wind up costing you more than Sliver since you would need to spend so much more on equipment to handle it.

For example:
If you really wanted I could probably outsource the project to the specialty machine shop my sister works for and they could make you one in Stainless, but from my experience for a one off piece like this they would want close to if not over $1,500 due to the complex laying structure. For a more falter detail version it would probably be closer to $400~600. On the other hand I could cast it out of Sliver for around $130.

Stainless just tends to be really expensive to work with in small batches. As a metal it doesn't cost that much but the overhead in dealing with it can get crazy unless you are dealing with high volumes.

It's been forever since I watched anything Gundam...  That could be kind of a fun one to make pendants and pins off of though, if the market isn't already super saturated given how popular it got.

Not yet, though I mostly equate that to me assuming the post wouldn't be super popular and if someone was really interested in this one they would note me like I do to other artist.

They are pretty awesome, or at least I think so. XD
This one is for sell as-is and than in the not-so-distant future another slightly different version will be for general sell.
The big things that will be different on the general ones will be surface finish, and they'll be slightly smaller due to mold shrinkage compared to the prototypes. They should be the same price though as I'm trying to keep overhead down as much as possible to keep things affordable for people.

Checks are not my favorite thing since I feel bad about the super delayed shipping times waiting for a check to come in and clear before sending something out, but I would still accept them! After all I do have many friends who refuse to use PayPal, and a one who is trying to boycotting banking entirely, XD and have seen first hand how irritating it can be for them when PayPal is the only option.

I do actually have access to a laser engraver, I'd have to talk to my sister's boss to see how much he would want to cover the use of the machine, but I'm pretty certain I could offer it as an option!

That would especially be great option for the pin versions, of which I'm planing to start offering once I get the new equipment in, they will be thinner and slightly smaller (I want to standardize the height of all pins so they'll better match each other). I have a couple prototypes made and they are pretty cool.
