Somewhere in my Internet travels I came across Steampunk and was stopped in my tracks. What is this lovely fantasy complete with costumes all about? A bit of searching revealed I was not alone in my fascination. I have been collecting bits and pieces to incorporate into wire art steampunk jewelry ever since. Here is my first attempt. It is the works of a pocket watch captured in a wire bezel, adorned with carved citrine beads, Swarovski pearls and finished with vintage and contemporary findings. More wire and beads to make up the necklace. I find the piece presents my usual challenge of being quite heavy. I have compensated somewhat for the weight by using wood prayer beads and a counter balance.
