Ask any gamer that has played Final Fantasy VIII and they will know where the idea for these came from! I have played most of the games in the Final Fantasy series, and often get requests for pieces made based on the games. Well, your request is answered!
This design is based on the gunblade Squall wields in Final Fantasy 8. The gunblade is a recurring type of weapon in the Final Fantasy series, first appearing in Final Fantasy VIII. In Final Fantasy VIII, gunblades have a blade with a firing mechanism built into the hilt, the barrel running inside a part of the blade. They are mostly used like normal swords, but triggering a round causes the blade to vibrate as the weapon passes through an opponent to boost damage. The gunblade is the weapon of choice for Squall Leonhart and his rival, Seifer Almasy.
This was designed as a request from a customer who really wanted these. And you know what, it gave me the excuse to make them finally! And if anyone has something they are looking for, let me know and I might be able to do something for you!
Sterling silver is an alloy of silver containing 92.5% by weight of silver and 7.5% by weight of copper. The sterling silver standard has a minimum millesimal fineness of 925.
Because bronze contains copper, it can turn your skin green whether you have an allergy or not. Bronze and copper turn your skin green because when the copper reacts with your sweat and the acids from your skin, it produces copper chloride. Copper chloride is a green substance that then rubs off on your skin. If you are prone to sweating, your bronze jewelry will definitely turn your skin green. This chemical reaction can also be prevented by painting any part of the jewelry that comes in contact with your skin with clear nail polish or clear acrylic enamel.
