Once you have your Trademark you need to defend it. Unfortunately, that can cost a lot since it usually involves lawyers sending out a "cease and desist" order. I know Etsy and Artfire have pulled items from people's shops if they receive a Cease and Desist letter about a product.

Creating steampunk jewelry may be your best bet. Other items the guys like would be goggles, and modifying Nerf guns for a steampunk look. Unfortunately, the gun mods would call for spray paint and that would be an outside project. Not sure how much time or money you have, but buying the goggles to modify could be costly.

As for the jewelry, you can find steampunk elements, gears, etc. in Hobby Lobby or Michaels stores if those are near you. You could also throw in hardware store items like washers, O rings, hex nuts in brass and zinc.

Here are a few links that might get you started:

Easy steampunk necklace you can recreate with a metal shape you can distress and hang with charm such as gears, keys, hardware element. A simple leather cord would be good for girls or guys.


Another simple necklace example using hardware washer.


Here are some examples from fellow craftsters:


Another example of a steampunk necklace with gears. All these elements can be found in the scrapbooking area of Hobby Lobby or Michaels, the designer is Tim Holtz.


Let me know if you have any more questions, I love steampunk!

I love mixing different materials together too, especially mixed metals. I think you did a great job of combining the leather with the stamped metal. I checked out your tutorial and like that you used the embossing machine to emboss your leather. I've used my small Cuttlebug machine to emboss thin metal and wondered if I could do leather. I assume the leather would have to be relatively thin too.
Thanks for the inspiration!

There are awesome! I like them alot more than the "normal" wedding sets, very unique to the couple. Are they sterling silver?

Doesn't seem like anyone answered your question, so if you are still looking for that stamp it is a Beaducation original. They have a great website with lots of free info on stamping on metal.

I've made the no sew fleece quilts for my sons when they were in high school. They still use them on their beds today and they are now in college.

Wow, beautiful dress and so much work! I hope you find an event to wear it to, maybe check for a local NeoVictorian Society or Steampunk event in your area.
