I love shopping at local flea markets and yard sales for vintage and unusual jewelry, you just never know what you’ll find!

I see beauty in things that many people call junk and especially like buying items that are broken, missing stones and have missing parts because when I get home I usually break them up into useable parts for my steampunk compositions.

This past weekend I found a great vintage butterfly with long spiked legs.

Most of the stones were missing so when i got home I removed the rest of the stones and wire brushed the body.

I began sorting through my boxes of junk parts and pieces and found an alien looking charm head which gave me the idea of making a space age alien bug-man.

I added a watch dial for the body and wired it with coils and gears to give it a mechanical effect. Some coiled wire and gears were added to the chain to complete the composition.
