Steampunk Jewelry Necklace
The world of Steampunk is currently enjoying a renaissance.
Out of all the strange and fascinating Steampunk accessories that go with this Neo- Victorian art form, my passion is for Steampunk Jewelry.
When I see someone wearing Steampunk Jewelry, it’s like a symbol, as recognisable as the compass and setsquare of the freemasons, the pentagram of the Wiccans or the Ankh of the Goths (and lets not forget Ancient Egyptians!).
In my mind there is so much more to Steampunk Jewelry than cogs and old watch parts glued to rings and pendants, with the repurposing of these components there is an intrinsic appreciation of the skill and artistry of the past.
Securing old watch parts has become no easy task, as enthusiasts are snapping up vintage timepieces and contemporary watches are comprised mainly of plastic, making them irrelevant.
Whilst there has always been a collectable market for wonderfully crafted timepieces
Sadly broken or less collectable watches were discarded, but with the Steampunk movement the intricate and beautiful objects of yesteryear have been given a new lease of life.
When you open the watches and clocks of yesteryear it’s like opening a treasure chest; you’ll often find rubies along with the elaborate and gorgeous movements.
With the resetting of these movements and rearrangement of the components these antiquated artefacts take on a fresh new relevance in this wonderful and intricate art form.
Valentine’s Day is rocketing towards us as if propelled by a thousands cogs and springs. So this seems like the perfect time to share lots of red and pink toned Valentine’s Day Steampunk Jewelry ideas with you.
(Also worth noting is my February Birthstone Jewelry post, which has plenty of purple and amethyst jewelry too)

Okay, back to the Steam Cave. There’s lots of new jewelry to make and the clockwork is ticking…
Prepare yourselves for a post of epically purple proportions. The end of January is fast approaching, hence this showcase in amethyst and a collection of February Birthstone Jewelry from London Particulars.
Amethyst, as you may well know or now suspect from this post, is the birthstone for February…
“The February born shall find
Sincerity and peace of mind,
Freedom from passion and from care,
If they, the amethyst will wear.”
Not my words, but the words of an old poem. And whilst I cannot guarantee peace of mind whilst wearing my Steampunk jewelry, and I’m not sure you’d choose to seek ‘freedom from passion’, I do promopse that you will shine whilst wearing these pieces. In gorgeous vibrant shades of purple and amethyst.
So hop on over to London Particulars right now and snap these lovelies up for that special person with a February birthday. Or for yourself, whether you were born in February or just happen to love all things purple, shiny and ever so slightly steamy.
