Hey there! I posted some of my steampunk jewelry a while back and I've just made a couple of new pieces. Thought I'd share them with you!

The first necklace I made a while back, maybe two months ago, but it had to go through some serious revamping because it wouldn't stay together! I also was using it on a chain that I owned, but was unwilling to part with if the piece sold. So I was wearing it around a lot, and it received a ton of positive attention!

I call it Tenth Gear:

It is made from pretty much all of a pocket watch. It even has the original backing so it can be popped open.

The attached hand is a stripped down clock hand. It had some really rusty black paint on it, and to my surprise underneath was this lovely copper color.

The necklace closes with this really cute toggle clasp I found at some craft store. Both of these pieces happen to have that clasp, though I also found a different one that is gold toned and looks like gears.

This next piece I just made recently. I call it Perennial Memory:

The base of it is a really nice filigree locket which I attached a watch movement to, along with a small watch gear and a white rose cameo.

The inside has a watch face, a watch hand, and some gears. I think this turned out pretty well for a relatively quick project!

Thanks for looking! C&C always welcome.

Everything goes better with beads.

Very impressive rendering of the steampunk style. I love the second one, but wonder if the inside is too hidden? Only the wearer is going to really be able to see it, and it is so nice!

Yeah, I had the same thought, but truthfully I'd be the kind of person to wear it open if I wanted that to show! Maybe I will make a different locket or necklace with a similar looking part on the outside.

I'm wanting to get into steampunk!

The pocketwatch is wonderful!
