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.
Tis the season to be steamy! Frost is glistening on the ground, the trees stand naked and the clockwork elves have returned to my Steam Cave. Right now they’re sorting through hundreds of cogs, gears and shiny Swarovski crystals & together we’re busy making new Steampunk Rings and necklaces and all sorts in time for the Holidays. Which seem to have crept up upon us like festival ninjas!
Above and below are just a few of the new pieces and more and more are being added to London Particulars daily. So keep checking back over on Etsy and hopefully you will find something that will take your fancy!
