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.

These are just a few of the new items I have on London Particulars, and I’ll showcase more in the next few days. But for now, if you want to see the full range, click here or simply click on any other pieces to be whisked away by a virtual airship to London Particulars.

It’s been awhile since I’ve updated this site. I’ve been busy with a number of projects, as well as taking stock of London Particulars and planning new Steampunk Jewelry. So the cogs are turning and the springs are springing. And I’m planing on posting previews of the new pieces in the very near future.

In the meantime, I’ve gathered up all sorts of Steampunk news and snippets of Steampunkesque creativity for your reading and viewing pleasure. Including gorgeous Steampunk Art, an amazing Steampunk Motorbike and Sculpture, a pair of Steampunk Earrings fashioned by yours truly, and a Steampunk trailer (yes, really).
And finaly, if you’re looking for Steampunk Jewelry come and have a rummage around London Particulars!
