by Rhonda Grandee. (Blackfoot Idaho) I recently ran across some costume jewelry on sale, and thought it might be possible to turn them into steampunk pieces. Holes were drilled into the costume pendants, then watch gears and watch bodies were wired on. The octopus was also altered from a pendant to a brooch. The watch parts added up to about $2 per piece, … [Read more...] about Modified to Steampunk Costume Jewelry
by Charlene Thiessen. (Tempe, Arizona) When I was into steampunk I made these gears wrapped with wire. Some seem to be earrings, and one was the focal pendant. I had a gold necklace that had come from a thrift store, so I shortened that and put the focal gear pendant on that. I'd also found some bee buttons at the thrift store (where I do much of my shopping!) … [Read more...] about Steampunk Bee Jewelry Set

But when I started playing around with these antique finish steampunk charms, I wanted to make something that would blend with your casual looks without being too edgy.

by Jenee' Mohler. (Sisters, Oregon) I need some advice on ways to attach tiny gears and watch components to partial watch movements, and jump rings to vintage wristwatch movements. Some pieces just don't have holes to wire to, and can't be drilled.

Almost all our pieces come with a fantasy story. … [Read more...] about Dragons of Artificial Moon
