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.
This is a beautiful piece!! I love the color-scheme you went with and it’s not overly done, too.
I’m just recently getting into Steampunk myself. A friend of mine has invited me to his Steampunk themed party which is happening early next month, so I’m in the process of trying to hurry up and finish some accents to my Steampunk costume for it.
With that said, this piece has certainly caught my eye.:)
