Other Announcements
Cochlea, (Snail)
I wanted to share the exciting news that I recently completed my first automaton in the Medieval Bestiary series, which was on display at the Museum of Arts & Design in NY from October 2018- March of 2019.

It was a tremendous amount of work and I'm super proud of it. Now I just have to find the time to continue the series!


If you're interested in supporting or owning one of the series, you can contact me at bcox@mechanicalcurios.com
Two New Enamel Pins
Cochlea Pin!

AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER: This limited edition black nickel and white hard enamel pin with screen printed detail comes in at 35mm across and is finished with two pin backs and the Memoria Technica logo on the back. A celebration of the first automaton by Brittany N Cox, she is super proud of it and basically couldn’t stop herself from making a super cute pin version. $10 

 

Clockmaker & Magician Robert Houdin’s Orange Tree Pin 

This limited edition hard enamel pin with green glitter detail comes in at 62mm tall, as the handkerchief emerges. Just as in real life, as Houdin’s tree would produce a handkerchief carried by two butterflies, the pin features a movable component that conjures the past in the same fashion. As if appearing from the tree itself, the handkerchief rises to reveal the ring (or other article) vanished by the famous magician. The handkerchief can be worn in the up or down position. $15

Guilloché Baubles from the Workshop
New sterling silver guilloché coasters! These 3" coasters are 18 gauge solid sterling silver backed by cork and can be ordered individually or in pairs. They come in a variety of both straight line and rose engine patterns. Mix and match to create your own unique set.

Another round of mineral stands are in the works! So if you missed picking up one of these little hotties, they'll be available again soon. 
Sacred Geometry - Second Edition
After selling out of the limited run of the Sacred Geometry coloring book, I've released a second edition! In addition to the original patterns, we have added another 17, making 88 unique patterns. 
The front and back cover are pressed with white and silver foil. The binding is spiraled white metal wire, allowing the book to lay flat as you color. The book is printed on 180lb uncoated white paper – so your coloring utensils won’t bleed through and colors stay true. This book is limited to 300 copies and is handmade here in Seattle Washington.
