1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Steampunk Propeller Ring and Alice in Wonderland Necklace on: May 28, 2011 11:14:18 AM
Here are two of my latest creations. The first is an antiqued brass steampunk propeller ring. I finally found the right components so the propeller on the ring can still spin!

This next piece is my nod to Alice in Wonderland. I hand stamped the copper pendant, then antiqued it with Liver of Sulfur and added the tiny glass vial "elixir".

2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Steampunk Airship Captain Pin Series on: May 25, 2011 09:46:45 AM
I've shared a few of my winged pins before, but decided to make a series of them. Here are some of my latest.

Antiqued gold wings with antiqued pewter finish skull and crossbones for the Airship Pirate in you:

Antiqued gold wings with Victorian styled cameo and black wings with a skeleton cameo for that undead look:

Here are a few more that I believe I've shared in the past, but decided to put all in one post.

Airship Captain winged balloon pin:

Time Flies winged pin:

I hope you like them, let me know what you think!


3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / May the Force be with You! - Latin Edition on: May 06, 2011 05:59:20 AM
Since May 4th was Star Wars Day - "May the Fourth be with you", I decided to unleash my inner geek and create this keychain to honor the day. I distressed, stamped, and antiqued the copper then riveted copper and brass gears to it. The latin phrase says, "May the Force be with you".

4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Carpe Omnia "Seize Everything" on: April 13, 2011 10:01:32 AM
Forget seizing the day, you know deep down that secret pirate in you really wants to "Seize Everything"! For this necklace I hand stamped and antiqued a copper pendant then added a bone skull dangle and hung it on a black leather cord.

5  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Mixed Metal Victorian Styled Clock Brooch on: April 13, 2011 09:51:06 AM
I've always loved mixing my metals, even before it was the "in" thing. Here is my version of a Victorian lady's brooch.

6  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / New additions to my tiny bottle necklaces on: April 09, 2011 12:53:56 PM
I'm always trying to think of something to put in those tiny bottles. So here are two new additions to my collection. The first one has tiny shells and a sand dollar dangle. I call this one "Just Beachy"!

This next one is inspired by the rock opera musical film: Repo! The Genetic Opera.

Any Zydrate fans out there?


7  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Victorian Themed on: March 10, 2011 09:40:32 AM
Ok, maybe not super Victorian but this little guy makes me smile. I decided to modify a velveteen choker so I could hang him from it. The velveteen was fairly thick so I placed an eyelet in it to protect the hole so I could dangle him on the ribbon.

I really loved the look of this cameo, it wasn't the typical black and white, but had a deep brown background and looked antiqued. This reminds me of the old sepia tone photographs. I found a nice antiqued gold setting and created a light tan twisted cord necklace for it.

When I found these components I decided to create a brooch. Just takes me back to another era.

I hope you enjoy them!

8  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Stamped Copper Earrings on: February 09, 2011 07:39:12 AM
I'm having fun working with some copper blanks and metal stamps. For these two pairs of earrings I stamped the copper, then antiqued it with liver of sulfur. I then drilled the holes so I could hang them from the earwires.

Let me know what you think!

9  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Hearts! on: February 07, 2011 10:25:24 AM
I like the look of combining the dark wood disk with the antiqued pewter finish on the heart shaped keyhole pendant. I finished the necklace off by putting it on an antiqued pewter chain.

I thought this bar pin had kind of a tribal look to it. I added dangles with black and copper beads. The tiny blue, brown, and cream colored beads are called "mummy beads".  I added a small copper heart charm to the longest dangle.

This necklace has a tiny brass envelope that opens on a hinge to reveal a removeable letter that says "I Love You". I added this charm to an antiqued brass chain with 2 open heart links.

Thanks for looking!

10  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Owl Themed Jewelry on: February 02, 2011 07:20:45 AM
When I found this little brass owl I thought he had a victorian flair so I decided to turn him into a pendant. He seemed to need a little something so I added a clock charm to give him a steampunk look.

These little copper owl beads were so cute I knew I wanted to make them into earrings.
