Thinking about the upcoming Halloween, I made this pendant – perhaps it will go with somebody’s outfit? I’ve spent a lot of time making this, about four hours (about twice longer than my average pendant). A lot of fire polished beads in this one too: hematite-black and iris-crystal clear. Available on Etsy.
I rarely make steampunk sets, because it’s hard to get matching beads for earrings and a pendant, but this time I was lucky. And also – clockwork hearts again for all those of you who like heart-shaped jewellery :) Available on Etsy.
The base of this pendant is the main part of a vintage pocket watch movement. I added sapphire/cobalt blue beads (lampwork and fire polished glass) and a lot of gears. I’m quite fond of this colour combination. I kept the earrings simple, because the pendant is quite detailed and I did not want to split the focus. Available on Etsy.
Another creative way to deal with a cameo. I glued it onto a vintage pocket watch movement instead of a classic cameo setting, and then wrapped it with wire. I love how it came out. Also, there’s slightly victorian feeling to it. Available on Etsy.
I’ve made three or four items of similar design (wrapped base of a watch), in different colours, but this one is the best so far. It’s slightly gothic too, I suppose. Available on Etsy.
I usually get my supplies from glass bead mixes, so it’s hard to get matching beads for a set in most cases. There is a considerable demand for sets, though, so I decided to make some, and also ordered some beads that will match the beads that I already have. Until I get my order, I will use what I already have (not much, I’m afraid but will be enough for four or five more). …
It took me a good while before I figured out how to wrap these, but I’m happy with how they came out. They are quite rare, as there is only one piece like that per watch, and they vary in shape, size and texture between different watches. I manage to find similar ones from time to time, though. Available on Etsy.
The idea came from a typo, “i” is just next to an “u” on the keyboard. The typo brought ideas and many creative possibilities that made me giggle. Why take everything so serious, right? So I bought some pink wire and made this. I hope that the true steampunk fans won’t kill me for this. ;) Available on Etsy.
Taking a small break from the steampunk style, I made this classic-looking and more or less symmetric pendant. It is slightly gothic/victorian looking, though. I used some Czech fire polished beads (iris neutral and blue) for decoration. The cameo cabochon is glass. Available on Etsy.
This time I made a neutral toned pendant, which makes it fit into the gothic style, and left the chain out, which made it look like a more traditional cameo, just slightly steampunk modded. I used Czech fire polished beads and various watch parts. Available on Etsy.
