This is Ashitaka's Crystal Dagger Necklace, based on the item from Mononoke Hime (Princess Mononoke), I was commissioned to make for someone. You can also purchase an updated version of this design in my online shop here: [link]
The charm is completely handmade out of polymer clay and painted with a variety of metallic acrylics. It has extra thick cording necklace wrapped around the dagger handle, and tied with an adjustable closure in the back. It is about two and three fourths inches tall, as you can see in the scaling image in the palm of my hand.
This was more challenging to make than it probably looks, not so much the sculpting, but the painting. It is called a crystal dagger, but I always thought it looked more like a combination of onyx and slate, so I tried to give it a rainbow of shining colors, with an overall dark blue shade. And I wanted the handle to look sort of like wood, but not too realistic so that it wouldn't clash with the more cartoony look of the blade itself.
Jewelry like this, as well as many other pieces can be commissioned by me. To see what's currently in-stock, check out my online store here: YellerCrakka.artfire.com
