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, my clockwork elves & I are going full steam to craft Steampunk jewelry for the Holidays.
All manner of Steampunk goodies are flying off the shelves of London Particulars, whirring, ticking and tocking away in gift boxes, waiting beneath trees hung with tinsel and baubles, and gleaming upon air-ships decked with holly.

If you’re anything like me, you’ll be eager to avoid the teeming crush of last minute shoppers milling around the streets and malls like festive zombies. Yes, you too can avoid the seasonal horror of other people’s hullaballo by perusing the new handcrafted Steampunk items being added to my Etsy shop right here from the comfort of your home.
Come, one and all to London Particulars for even more Steampunk Jewelry gift ideas.

Vintage Watch Movement Steampunk Earrings Steampunk Gifts for the Holidays

The Holidays are very very nearly here, and the Steam Cave is in full production.
The most persistent snow has fallen beyond the ice frosted windows. Which means I’m shipping my Steampunk Jewelry via a hike to civilization. While this is invigorating and the landscape around me is very beautiful, a Steam-powered Jet Pack would be entirely helpful right now.
Perhaps one of the Clockwork Elves can build me one.

So, with the steady march of the Holidays, I thought I’d showcase a few items from London Particulars. Each, and all would make wonderful gifts or stocking fillers. Be they presents for discerning Steampunks, or lovers of clockwork jewelry and shiny shiny stones.

So without further ado…
