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 Jewelry Butterfly Necklace Steampunk News (and elves and spiders)

As mentioned in my last post, the Steampunk Clockwork Elves are ready. Their gears are greased, their cogs tightened and they’re shipshape, tip-top and ready to assist with making lots of lots of new Steampunk Jewelry for the Holidays.

So keep your peepers on this site over the next few days for a flurry of new pieces. Or head over to London Particulars to see the full selection of the new works in my Etsy shop.

In addition to my the Clockwork Elves, I also have a fleet of Steampunk Spiders that like to crawl through the web looking for snippets of Steampunk news to share. Below are a few pieces from the London Particulars Google+ page, which will hopefully amuse and captivate while I put the final touches to the new jewelry.

Well I survived Halloween and now I’m gearing (pun intended) up for the Holidays. Which means I’m back in the Steam Cave firing up the mechanical elves. They haven’t really been in work since last year, so their gears need tuning and their workings tightening.

In the meantime, as I wait for the elves to spring back to life, I’ve made many new pieces of Steampunk Jewelry.
You can see them here, in this very blog post. Yes, there’s now an abundance of gleaming Steampunk Cufflinks over at London Particulars, there are new Steampunk Necklaces and Steampunk Earrings. All glittering and sparkling in my Etsy shop and waiting for lovers of Steampunk goodness.

To visit London Particulars, simply click on the images above and below. If you find the item has been sold, and you want something similar, I may be able to make it for you. You can contact me on Etsy here.

Now, back to those clockwork elves…
