by Joan Williams. (Springfield, Missouri USA) I had a lot of fun creating this bracelet out of re-purposed materials - hinges and clock gears! The owner of one of the local bead stores always has a great selection of these things and I love to dig through them for inspiration. Once I got the design figured out, it was really easy to put together - I simply attached the … [Read more...] about Hinges & Gears

by Carolyn Dargevics. (Neenah, Wisconsin USA) I love steampunk but on my own terms. I took apart an old, broken cuckoo clock and used the parts to make the necklace. I handwashed the parts because they were oily, dirty, and dusty, and then used my Dremel to clean off the rust. As with all my pieces, I design on the fly. I can't, for the life of me, sketch a piece … [Read more...] about Steampunk Goes Cuckoo
by Violette Noble. (Portland Oregon USA) First I mounted a tiny snippet of a gorgeous vintage illustration into a high quality adjustable square silver ring blank and added a teensy weensy gear in the middle of the little clock. I mixed and poured 2 part "Glass Like" epoxy HALF WAY full, and when it was dry I added two other tiny pocket watch gears and filled it up … [Read more...] about Steampunk Ring with Floating Watch Parts
by Joan Williams. (Springfield, Missouri USA) One of my friends saved a handful of small round keyhole plates for me and I discovered they fit perfectly on top of an 18mm bezel, so I decided to try out a ring design. I cut the eye image out of an old lithograph and trimmed it to fit the bezel, and because I planned to cover it with resin, I sealed it before gluing it … [Read more...] about The Secret

We don't wear ties at work anymore so I had a few … [Read more...] about Tie Clip

by David Allen Giles. (King, North Carolina USA) I love SteamPunk.The look of it it's so bold and rugged but beautiful. I took apart an old watch I had one day to use the face but I broke it. It was made of carbon fiber so I didn't won't to throw it away. So I took the broken parts and cut and made them fit on this cross I had. And I started adding all the … [Read more...] about Broken SteamPunk Crosses
by Roz Asquith. (Townsville, North Queensland, Australia) I love Rena's books and the one about market stalls is my absolute bible (modified for Australia though!!) I am freaking out - I put a submission to be a stallholder at the very first Australia Steampunk Festival. This was 3 months ago or so. I have received my approval. What I did not anticipate was the … [Read more...] about Massive Steampunk Festival: I’m in!!…uh oh…I’m In.
