I know this description should be short and sweet, but I can't with this one! This little guy gave me absolute hell and if I was using the metalsmithing formula for pricing that includes hours spent on it- it would be 4x+ the cost. 
That said, I couldn't love him more. Delightfully gritty and grimey with a weird little tentacle- I really think he captured the right feel for the song. Ween's Mutilated Lips lyrics are hammered into the backplate and "I said please calm it down/everything is turning brown" is hidden inside the frame. 
The boognish. Holy hell, it took *forever* to saw-pierce each individual tooth- hours and hours of tedious sawing slowly, and man his left eyeball came detached twice and launched into oblivion once- trying to cut out something that freaking small with a jeweler's saw- twice, good god. 
The texture! I worked in sterling silver sawdust and used texturing hammers and really worked in a good grittiness. I'm super proud of how that texture came together.
The weird little tentacle is attached on the side and was a total experiment in trying to shape it. It has a teardrop shaped labradorite that suspends from the boognish with some nice movement. 

So yeah. It's hard to part with this one. And it was really hard to come up with a cost, considering how many full days I put into working on him, and how much sterling he used. It pains me to put it so low, but I also hope he actually gets scooped up and given a good home, so I felt like I needed to knock the price lower than I'd like. 
I hope he finds just the right person to love his weird, gritty magic. 

Comes packaged in a lyric tin, available with or without the 18" sterling silver chain, includes a Sunshine brand polishing cloth, and ships free!
