Princess Mononoke Hime - Crystal Dagger Necklace by YellerCrakka Princess Mononoke Hime - Crystal Dagger Necklace by YellerCrakka
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 or feel free to send me an e-mail at YellerCrakka@yahoo.com if you're interested in anything.

Hello I was wondering if you could make me a necklace as well? I'm getting ready for Dragoncon and Princess Mononoke is going to be one of my cosplays.

I would love to buy this necklace for my sister for Christmas if that's okay?! Can you still make one? She loves Miyazaki movies and would flip out!

I love this! I just recently watched Princess Mononoke and it quickly became one of my fave Studio Ghibli movies! Love this necklace! XD

Thanks so much! :) I hadn't watched this movie again since it first came out until I made this necklace, so it was a great chance to revisit it. Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind is my personal favorite, but Mononoke is probably second, maybe tied with Kiki... Who am I kidding, I can't decide, I love them all! :P

This is the best ashitaka daggers I've seen! Excellent job! :clap:

Out of curiosity, how much did you charge for this piece? :D

YellerCrakka Featured By Owner Mar 18, 2013  Professional Artisan Crafter
Thank you so much, I really appreciate that! :dance: And a piece like this would go for about twenty eight dollars, depending on specifics requested by the commissioner. If you're ever interested in something like this yourself, feel free to send me an e-mail at YellerCrakka@Yahoo.com anytime and I would be happy to help.
