The bead is actually multi-coloured, but I chose the side that had more red on it. There is also some silver and yellow visible, but not much. The shade of red is warm, slightly brownish. Available on Etsy.
I’ve just got a question on deviantArt: “Your jewelery is amazing! I think it would be realllllllllly awesome if you put up a demo of how you make any of your stuff!” At first I got angry. Why should I tell my secrets to everybody so they can make jewellery like mine, right? There are already hundreds of people on deviantArt who copy other peoples designs pretending they’re just inspired by them, so why should …
I made one like this but with a black cabochon on a steel base. This brown cameo was better for brass base, obviously. Available on Etsy.
The previous steampink creations were fun and people laughed, but they weren’t very popular due to being, well, too pink. This is another approach to the subject, the pink shade is less fierce and looks more vintage, and the wire is the same gunmetal wire that I use for all steampunk creations. Available on Etsy.

People said it looked like some planets with their moons. I really don’t remember what I was thinking while making it. Probably that I had never done anything similar :) Lava, lime jade, turquoise and goldstone. Available on Etsy.
No other colour looks that spectacular in combination with brass. The design has a half-clockwork and half-floral feeling to it and I decided to leave it that way. Available on Etsy.
