What is Steampunk Jewelry?
Bonding my personality and imagination with Vintage jewelry, gears, and watch parts. Pushing the boundaries of creativity, the essence of steampunk is an homage to vintage fashion with a modern, sassy twist. Re-purposed to give birth to a unique expression of art and new functionality.
I became aware of “Steampunk” in the summer of 2010. I was fascinated with the imagination and creativity of people who imagined a world without a lot of our modern conveniences (or at least in the form they are now). The use of gears and steam power in a world where Jules Verne, H.G. Wells, Arthur Conan Doyle and Mary Shelley were the frame work of a fascinating Victorian-like environment.
Later, I saw some of the lovely jewelry people designed that took the Steampunk theme to things to wear. I soon started to put some watch gears and vintage jewelry together. Not only did I enjoy pushing my mind to be creative, but people said they liked what I created. Steampunk jewelry is a fun and fascinating style to work with.
It combines vintage, hardware, imagination, gadgetry, and science fiction.
All of that may sound like a strange mix, but it really works together fantastically!
And although the steampunk genre began as a form of fiction, it’s evolved into a popular style to wear – and to make. Every item is a one of kind piece of art.
So “Steampunkonista” was born. I hope people enjoy my jewelry as much as I loved creating it.
