you break you buy!

Give me a home…were the Radscorpions roam….

I’ve been making game/movie related jewelry for a good amount of time now and one request that pops up every so often is for something Fallout related.  I’ve been a huge fan of the games since back in the 3/4 view pixel based days back on the pc.  I did some polling around for what people would most like to see and the Nuka Cola cap kept coming up time and time again.  I figured “What the hell, I’ll give it a shot…”  I design all my stuff in 3d and then have it printed out in stainless steel.  I designed this as a necklace but it could be used as a keychain/zipper pull, just slice off the cord and run a ring through the bail, buyer’s choice.

(yes, before you say “No way man, you can’t print in metal, I assure you by the Vault, you indeed can).  The result is an almost bullet proof solid chunk of metal.  

Side note: a lil history on Nuka Cola (via Fallout.wikia.com)

Nuka-Cola was invented in 2044 by John-Caleb Bradberton. Its unique taste gained widespread popularity, quickly becoming the most popular soft drink in the United States with an extremely dedicated following. The widely known dazzling blue bottle color was adopted as standard in 2052, after market research programs indicated that the blue color was the favorite in 86 people out of 100 polled.

The ingredients of Nuka-Cola include: carbonated water, caramel color, aspartame, phosphoric acid, potassium benzoate (to protect taste), natural flavors, citric acid, and caffeine. What gives it a unique flavor is the essence of seventeen different fruits mixed in just the right proportion to give the beverage its trademark taste. Some versions of the drink also include vita-minerals and health tonics. During the Great Passion Fruit Famine of2044, people actually noticed the taste difference when the recipe was changed.

By 2067, vending machines with ice cold Nuka-Cola could be found on virtually every street in America.

……aaaaaaaaaaan with that being said, here she is!

One side bears the proud Nuka Cola logo, synonymous with buying things that go bang, putting prices on heads and various dubious services. The back has the beaming grin of good ol’ Vault Boy smiling back at you, to keep you company on the lonely nights hunkered down next to the fire keeping your ears pealed for mutants.

The pendant is strung on a loyal and resilient length of paracord. In a pinch you can cut it open and pull out the individual filaments to stitch a wound, bind stuff to stuff and…..use to fish? I put a snap together quick release clasp on all my p-cord stuff. It’s rated to at least 550 pounds so it could literally rip your noggin right off if it didn’t have the clasp and got caught on something. Fun fact, if you rip your noggin off you will not learn any more fun facts.

Here we see the pendant in the wild, it has taken down its favorite prey, the wildernana and is in the process of gorging itself on the flesh as well as providing a convenient feeling of scale.

My grubby man paw, also for scale.

*side note-due to being a massive pain in the @$$ I only ship to the US now…..I got screwed out of around 300 bucks due to a change in the USPS’s international shipping policy and it did not sit well with me.

(once your order is placed it takes around 25-30 days to create the pendant)
