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.
As mentioned in my last post, Valentine’s Day is almost upon us. Which is why me and my Steam-powered cupid have been busy making new pieces of Steampunk Jewelry. As you can see, there’s plenty of red and purple pieces for this special occasion. And the good news is there’s still time to purchase something suitably steamy from London Particulars (if you’re based in the US).
Alternatively, if you plan to spend Valentine’s alone, or despise the day, there’s plenty of suitably darker, more gothic pieces in London Particulars…huzzah!
I’m showcasing but a few of the new works here. You can discover a lot more by browsing through my Etsy Shop.
Simply click on any of the pictures and you’ll be whisked away via the magic of the Internet.
Now, without further bluster, here’s the new pieces, including Steampunk Necklaces, Earrings and Rings.
And Happy Valentine’s for those of you who celebrate.
And as ever, keep it steamy!
Valentine’s day is nearly here, hence the red and purple Steampunk Jewelry in this post.
The clockwork elves have taken a well-deserved holiday until December, and now my Steam-powered cupid is assisting in crafting plenty of new pieces for Valentines over at London Particulars.
If you return to this blog in a couple of days, you will discover a showcase of new Steampunk Jewelry which is perfectly fitting for Valentine’s gifts. Be they for that special someone in your life, or a reward to yourself for having to endure public displays of other people’s amour
In the meantime, as I put the final touches to the new jewelry, I’ve collected a few items of Steampunk news for your delight and delectation. Including a Deep Red Steampunk Ring from yours truly, a gorgeous dark and brooding piece of Steampunk Art, a fearsome Steampunk Samurai, magnificent Octopus Chandeliers, and a beautiful asian Steampunk Princess.
So remember, don’t forget to return here next week for the new Steampunk Jewelry pieces, or you can also subscribe
And in the meantime, keep it steamy…
