Steampunk Jewelry

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.


Amethyst Steampunk Ring New Summer Steampunk Jewelry from London Particulars (Part 2)

As mentioned in my last blog post, I’ve been making new Steampunk Jewelry. And there’s a lot more coming in my epic quest to be ready for the Holidays. In August. I can only put this surge in productivity and timing, down to the influence of all the clock parts I work with. Cogs, gears, watch movements, ticking and tocking reminders of the march of time.

So without further preamble and bluster, here’s some more new works. Including a Steampunk Ring and Steampunk scarab necklace in amethyst, a beautiful Elgin watch movement necklace, an intricate silver clockwork ring, a round Steampunk ring in dark siam red.

Simply click the pictures to see the pieces in my London Particulars Etsy Store.

Greetings! It’s been more than a little while since my last blog post. During that time I’ve been ordering parts and gathering cogs and ticking clocks and planning new Steampunk Jewelry for the fall and Holidays. Which might seem a long way off but are likely to creep up and slap me around the face like a wet kipper any time soon. So I’ve been taking stock of my inventory and what I’ll be making, as well as creating new Steampunk Jewelry pieces shown here in all their splendor.

Do you like what you see? Simply click on the piece or pieces that take your fancy and you’ll find yourself in London Particulars. Usually I’d greet you with a nice cup of London Fog, or perhaps a glass of Port, but being that London Particulars is a virtual store I cannot But know that I would, were it possible. Please, have a good browse around and if you have any questions or a favored color which you do not see represented in my jewelry, convo me on Etsy.
And now, without further preamble, the new jewelry:
