Those are gorgeous!  I think they would be really pretty in sterling silver, too.  Forgive my ignorance, but how did you put these together?  I hope, hope you'll say you welded them because I REALLY want to learn to weld. Wink

Walking home from class yesterday, I picked up a handful of assorted brass nuts and other hardware.... I've been meaning to turn them into some sort of steampunky goodness, thanks for the inspiration!



And the big lead one already makes a badass ring!

I love the nut as a ring.  Looks great and doubles as a weapon! Wink

These are so frigging awesome. I am completely down with the steampunk scene, I want to get in on it. Your rings and necklaces are gorgeous. I think I need to find myself some leftover old gears.

awww, that necklace reminds me of when i had to rebuild the brakes on my old car... except way cuter and far less miserable!  all these years, i've thought of c-clips as the enemy and never recognised their blatant necklace potential!

and i love the ring that moves, i want one!
