Here at Geeks Bearing Gifts you will find inspirational words of scientists, thinkers, and dreamers. You will find the sparkle of curiosity, the treasure of discovery, the gift of inspiration. You will also find whimsy and humor, maybe even a few pop-culture references scattered about as we celebrate the beauty of the intellect and the passion of knowledge.

My name is Tom, jewelry designer and chief geek here. I design and make jewelry (I actually prefer the term "wearable art") that is inspired by science, history, philosophy, science fiction, fantasy and all things near and dear to the hearts of geeks and nerds.

Help us to continue expanding our jewelry lines and techniques as well as travel to the various science fiction conventions, fairie festivals, maker faires, and comic cons, where we sell our products in person. If you are a patron and see us at a show please come and say "hi" and get a special gift!

After a lot of research we have begun experimenting with metal clay for creating custom, solid copper and bronze accents for our soldered glass and stone jewelry pieces like the fossil ammonite and trilobite pendants in the photos above. Metal clay consists of finely powdered metal mixed with a clay like organic binder. It can be shaped, carved and molded like modeling clay. Once complete it is fired with a torch or kiln. The binder burns away and the metal fuses into a solid piece. Right now we fire our pieces with a torch, but a digital kiln (like the one shown in the photo above) will allow us to make larger batches with greater precision. It will also allow us to experiment with other metals like sterling and fine silver.
