I ordered a bag of copper beads, that looked like mechanism parts on a photo. I wasn’t wrong, they really look like mechanism parts :) I wish I had bought some more, because I’m running out of them and this seller doesn’t have them anymore. In fact I couldn’t find anything similar on the whole Ebay.
Actually these earrings were the first steampunk items that I’ve made. All copper, no brass. I wrap the elements around with wire, sometimes along with a round glass bead. There are several variations. I love the outcome, and I kept one pair for myself. They do have a both steampunk and a gothic feeling.
This was also my first attempt at the Dwemer jewellery idea, that I’ve described in my previous post.
