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.
The Steampunk Jewelry I shared in last week’s post was bursting in reds and blues. This week I thought I’d share some new jewelry pieces that come in softer shades of purple and topaz. Each of these pieces is a representation of my more popular Steampunk Jewelry pieces, including Steampunk necklaces, rings and earrings. If you want to see a larger range, you can find more at London Particulars on Etsy.
As ever, if you see something you like and it’s sold, please contact me here, and I’ll see if I can make something similar for you.
I’m working on new Steampunk Jewelry all the time, so please bookmark this site. You can also follow me on Twitter, Google+, Facebook and Tumblr to find even more examples of my work, as well plenty of Steampunk news.
There’s plenty of reds and blues (especially blues) in this showcase of Steampunk Jewelry today. It seemed only fitting for this time of year, with fireworks, beers, hamburgers and yes, Steampunk delights in abundance. Imagine how these Steampunk Earrings will catch the light of the fireworks as they dangle upon your ears! Or the reflection and shine of pyrotechnics in these necklaces and rings! You will gleam fair and bright as you navigate your way to refill your drink of choice. Be it beer or perhaps, absinthe.
So without further ado, please find a selection of new pieces below. Each and every single one is available at London Particulars.
