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 blog post, Spring is here and I’ve been busy making new Steampunk Jewelry. As you can see, this week’s jewelry theme is blue. Apart from the piece above, naturally.

Below are six pieces of very blue Steampunk Jewelry, to match the skies. These are just a small selection of the new pieces and I hope to post more on this blog in the near future. Simply click on any of the jewelry items and you will be whisked away to my Etsy Shop London Particulars. And as ever, if anything has sold out by the time you reach the shop, please feel free to convo me and I’ll see if I can make something especially for you!

Okay, without further ado, a few of the new pieces, including Steampunk Butterflies waiting to take wing into the lush bloom of Spring.
