Steam-punk Tritium Necklace by Draeberkanin Steam-punk Tritium Necklace by Draeberkanin
This is basically a bar of purple glowing Tritium
(You can only see it in the dark, yet it last for over 20 years)

Crafted with pieces from a very old clock, bras, some wood and all onto a chain of silver.

Fanfic:
This is a Energy Core for a plasma/Tesla weapon, and because these cells are so expensive, they are often used in jewelry, like this one.

EDIT:
If someone wants to buy this, it is now broken Dx I accidental the wood.

This is awesome.
Would it be alright if I'd made my own as well? I've recently got a bunch of steampunk-ish components to craft out of and I have that glowy bar too, so just guessin'.

I had gathered a lot of old mechanical stuff, copper, brass, steel and so on. I think I used 1/200 of all the stuff I got, just b/c those individual pieces in this fit perfectly together.

There is only one.
But I would likely make another one ^^ It will not look anything like it thou :/

PS: You should include an in-the-dark photo.

That isn't quite so easy depending on where you live. as they cannot be legally obtained and sold in the U.S. , you would have to check with laws of your country/state to see availability of them for commercial selling and of course find a proper place to purchase the material (Tritium.

You can purchase it from random sellers legally/illegally. if you can obtain it legally you can purchase what I would consider a large amount for pretty darned cheap considering what people usually sell the 6-22mm vials for. and it would probably be a good idea to take protective measures anyways, but especially if you end up working with it in larger quantities.

Sure it looks great and you can get it/color it in a variety of colors (which will alter how bright it is, and the brightest which seems to be green is not comparable to a glowstick )Of course how bright it is DOES depend on the amount contained. If memory serves tritium is hydrogen 3 which is a heavy water.

Stuff like this I believe is also a waste product of nuclear power plants, the natural occurrence of it from my understanding is actually pretty rare.

Just ran into it recently and while it is pretty damn cool (10-15 year lifespan) for jewelry and such, please take precautions and look into your local laws, and when making jewelry, make sure it's very well protected. it never hurts to be cautious.

The wood.. I broke it when I tried to fit in a little bulb with a Lithium battery and a switch. I though it could be there (it could) but in the process, I ripped the wood in 3 parts.
