Steampunk Cameo Brooch

Cameo Brooch, Steampunk Style

Cameo Brooch, Steampunk Style

This delightful steampunk cameo has over 10 hours of work in it.

I painstakingly layered and placed over 20 tiny gears and wheels from my antique pocket watch collection onto this lovely antiqued brass finding.

A lovely resin cameo fits PERFECTLY inside its mechanical “frame” and large gear on top makes this lovely woman resemble a madonna.

Don’t miss the TINY BIRD to the right of this cameo! I LOVE the way this turned out!

This perfectly proportioned brooch measures 2″ by 1 1/2″ and would look LOVELY on a lace blouse at the base of your regal neck or on the lapel of your morning coat.

Fabulous vintage steam style
by: Rena

I love how you created a setting for this cameo from steampunky clock parts. It looks so much like an authentic Victorian cameo setting – till you look closer and see the clever use of gears.

Wonderful! Thank you so much for sharing this piece here.

THANK YOU!!

Hi Rena!
Well aren’t you sweet?!?!? I like the way that one turned out also and I love the way the large gear on her head makes her look rather “holy”!

Thanks again!

Although I’m usually not a fan of Steampunk – I’m probably too old to appreciate it, I really like this piece. You’ve recreated and restructed the new/antique look so perfectly. The result is truly beautiful.

Your kind words

I truly appreciate it!

Love Violette Noble

I was so struck by this gorgeously done cameo clockwork piece that I rushed to your site to purchase it! Unfortunately I was usable to find it. It must have been grabbed up immediately 🙂 . Just curious if you’ll be making any more in the future? I just adore your work. How gifted you are!
