It seems that it was yesterday, but five years have gone by since we launched the first piece of our Planchettes Collection back in 2013: the Vigilat Planchette.
We cannont deny that we are thrilled because our Vigilat Planchette has become an iconic design and one of our best-selling pieces. Obviously that’s great news and we have decided that it is time to create a second piece for this collection.
This new sterling silver planchette has been christened as ‘Moriar Planchette’ and the pre-production process for this piece is finished, wich means that its production will begin in the next weeks. If you want to learn more about the Moriar Planchette, just keep on reading.
Moriar Planchette – A sterling silver pendant by Decimononic
As you probably know, the original shape of a ouija pointer (planchette) recalls a heart. This time we wanted to do something different, so we have gone for a triangular shape. Why? Because of its powerful symbolism.
It would be premature to unveil all the details now, but we can tell you in advance that this jewelry piece has been inspired but the Victorian Egyptian revival and its influece on the secret societies that thrived during this historical period.
Do you want to be the first to know when this new sterling silver planchette-pendant sees the light? Then subscribe now to our newsletter to join ‘The Singulars’.
Our choice this time is ‘Drawing up a storm’, the song (and album) created from scratch by Paulina Cassidy.
As the singular lyrics go:
it’s in the shadows of the waves
they’re pulling me away
it’s in this night so warm
i’m drawing up a storm

A micro-interview with Paulina Cassidy
Can you think of anyone better than the songcrafter herself to tell you about her own world? Neither do we and this is why we are thrilled to bring you a micro-interview with her. Let’s go!
Here we are again! Led by the always inspiring Kevin Steil, the true and only Airship Ambassador, a new iteration of Steampunk Hands Around the World is forging new friendships, educating and spreading the word. For this reason we are pleased to invite you to visit the section dedicated to this outstanding event at the Airship Ambassador website: Master Link List.
As Kevin has explained:
This year, we will share and explore the ways in which steampunk can and has made life better, for ourselves and for others. How does steampunk make life more fun and enjoyable, how does it expand our horizons and help us define who we are, or who we want to be? How does steampunk inform us about ourselves, others, and the world around us? How does it help us find solutions for real life problems, and find ways to make changes for the better?
Making the most of this initiative through time and space we have shared our thoughts about different topics and we cannot help but recommend you two of our most read blog posts whithin the #Steampunkhands cycle.
- Steampunk & Latex: Do Steampunk aesthetics influence other alternative lifestyles?
- Amazing Steampunk-inspired fine jewelers.
Join us, let your voice be heard and do not forget to visit the Master Link List at the Airship Ambassador website!
As you probably know, everything has been very quiet at Decimononic for a while. Our Metropolis fine jewelry collection has become an ultra-exclusive collection of one-off pieces and we have been on hiatus for a short time due to personal reasons. We are very excited to share with you today that we are back for good and that our next collection is going to be ready to see the light in a few weeks.
What can we tell you in advance about it? To begin with, that our awarded ‘Abyssal’ bracelet has been the seed of this brand new collection inspired by the deep blue sea. In fact, this collection has been named as a ‘living fossil’ that inhabits depths of several hundred metres: the nautilus (it is no coincidence that Jules Verne christened Captain Nemo’s underwater vessel with the same name, as a tribute to Robert Fulton’s first practical submarine in History).
What can you expect regarding materials? Colored titanium and cultured pearls mainly, but we are exploring more options and some surprises are on the way.
Stay tuned to get a sneak peek very soon!
Jonathan Hultén is not a newcomer to the world of music. Talented composer, guitar player and singer, he launched his acoustic solo project with the release of a debut single, Nightly Sun, las year.
Jonathan is a wanderer of the dark side. Member of bands like Tribulation or Stench, his creative endeavours are almost endless (did we say that he is a cult-illustrator too?). So we are glad to bring you today the video of his new song, ‘Anguished are the young’, (with the collaboration of our dear friend Viveka Goyanes, who you will surely remember from this collaboration project with the Decimononic crew: ‘Amoelbarroco, Decimononic and… fortune-telling?’).
Sit back, relax and enjoy:
