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.


Steampunk Necklace One New Steampunk Jewelry and oddments

Greetings! It’s been a while since my last post where I mentioned making new Steampunk Jewelry. I’ve been waiting on parts for working on clockwork assistants, but now everything is up and running and new pieces are on the way. So, ahem, full Steam ahead!
In the meantime, I’m sharing three new Steampunk Necklaces in this post and there is a veritable treasure trove of new pieces on the way within the next few days.

As ever, simply click on any of the jewelry pictures to be taken directly to London Particulars where you can purchase them directly. And if they’ve sold, simply convo me on Etsy and I shall endeavor to make something similar.

In amongst showing off these three ‘oddments’, my special steampunk spiders have been crawling the web for Steampunk news and Neo Victorian oddities, a few of which are shared from my Google+ page below.
