Old Time - Steampunk Necklace

At long last this piece is finally finished. I had sort of a creative block and the fog finally lifted.

I realize some may not know what steampunk is - Steampunk is the idea of taking various modern utilitarian objects and turning them into sort of a pseudo-Victorian mechanical style. It's influence comes from the idea of things that were steam powered mostly in the Victorian era and integrates a little science fiction or fantasy. This type of imagination manifested itself in the literary works of H.G. Wells and Jules Verne.....and has found its way into jewelry.

I integrated different metals into this piece and gave it an old-time New Orleans flair which can be seen in the charms as well as the top hat & peacock feathers. You can see the mechanics of the watch which went from being the hidden heart of the inner workings of it to a place of prominence right on the face. Let me know what you think! "Old Time" can be found here

Crafting has always been a passion for me. I have yet to stick with any particular medium, as I love to switch it out and try new things. This blog is sort of a testament to that fact. Hope you enjoy...
