A batch of steampunk pendants

Here’s a batch of some new steampunk pendants – the smallest ones. Theoretically they come in pretty much any colour, but really mostly I use what I already have in my beads drawer and what’s available. I got lots of brown and purple ones this time. Available in my Etsy shop in the Steampunk section.

My pendants are available on Etsy in …

The pendants listed here are available in my Etsy …

Pocket watch pendant with yellow beads

This pendant’s base is a part of a vintage pocket watch. I used some gears and amber-yellow glass beads for decoration. Available on Etsy.

New beads

I wanted to share with you some of the interesting beads I’ve just got. Picasso jasper (also called “red creek jasper”, as far as I know), every bead looks like an abstract painting. Being a painter, I really love this. Some gorgeous druzy agate, with interesting banding: And black agate with white banding, that I bought for goth style jewellery, but who knows what I’ll make out of it:
