This gorgeous Double Cicada statement necklace features two good luck cicadas inset with Turquoise and Sterling Silver which converge on a Sterling Silver Clasp. I made the 20" chain with Sterling Silver wire. The two cicadas each are each grasping a hammered copper circle with Sterling Silver fused to it. This is as one-of-a-kind as you can get. It would be a magnificent adornment for any occasion. I could see this going well with many styles of dress, particularly something with a little cleavage like a sweetheart neckline.

A lovely tiara made on a metal head band using wire, crystals, pearls and watch parts. Bridal elegance with a subtle steampunk vibe, this would add a wonderful finishing touch to any occasion requiring your best steampunk garb. The center of the tiara features an antique segment of a long-defunct pocket watch. On either side are pearls, crystals and 2 gold metal safety pinions, also antique watch remnants which are engraved with the word "Elgin" for the Elgin watch company.( The black veiling is not included--merely a prop).
If you have already done the marriage thing, this would make a fabulous New Year's Eve crown!

This Steampunk or Victorian pendant started with the 1 1/2" diameter half of a vintage watchmaker's tin. I carefully cut the edges into points and bent them in. A vintage-style filigree was riveted in place and over that the wonderful polymer clay face. The woman's face looked flushed and wide-eyed and I had to think there might have been some absinthe in her recent past. A retaining ring was riveted on to facilitate hanging from the 18" bead chain. Two of the cut points were straightened and drilled to hold some fishing gear dangles. let'em eat steam!!

This steampunk necklace is a transmogrification of the little Etsy Octo into the less cuddly Cthulhu! In this version the cthulhu has received a dark patina before being cut wide open and riveted to a silver backplate cut from a vintage silver trivet. Emerging from the divided octo is a vintage watch face rich in patina and details. Below the dissected Cthulhu I have attached red crystal teardrops and fishing gear dangles. At the top of the Octopus I have riveted on a retaining ring so that the Cthulhu can swing freely from the 16" rosary-style chain.
I am a trained, if somewhat Gothic, metalsmith and have riveted this piece together to last one or more lifetimes. Let'em eat steam!
This Victorian or steampunk necklace began finding the half heart locket with silver star on it. I paired it with a circular locket carefully filling half the locket with resin and steampunk goodies. On the other half is a genuine antique tintype from the late 1800's. It has been sealed and protected with resin as well. The round locket dangles gracefully from the heart and is designed to remain open. The heart has been riveted to the handshake stamping and it all hangs from the 18" double chain which closes with a lobster-style safety clasp. Centerpiece is roughly 3 3/4" by 1 1/2". I am a trained, if somewhat romantic, silversmith and have built this piece to last.

Well, we don't have Rummy to push around any more, but when we did I had a chance to skewer him a bit. This is a copper wall-icon about 7"x9" and 1\/2 " thick. I have etched the doors that open to reveal his image and the images of some service members who died in Iraq. Among them the first member of the Hopi tribe to be killed (a young woman) and an African-American man who was the third generation to serve his country. His Dad and Grandfather came back, he didn't. Each picture has a story behind it. All images are on archival-quality photo paper in brass bezels and protected with resin. It has a wire for hanging and is embellished with found objects. OOAK, no doubt!
I offer a payment plan for higher-end items like this one. 3 or 4 payments made at regular intervals over a 60 or 9o day period may be arranged. Contact me for more details or read my shop policies under my profile.
A steampunk/victorian butterfly necklace features another favorite insect! It has been riveted to a brass profile of a vintage style woman's face. The butterfly features a silver bezel-set mother of pearl round stone. It has a lovely bronze/brown patina. The pendant measures a little over 2" in diameter. It hangs gracefully from a copper-tone vintage-style chain with safety clasp which is 16" in length. Elegant one of a kind style for your personal adornment.

This small shrine is lovingly assembled using tiny nuts and bolts for solid craftsmanship.The background is gold leafed and onto that I placed the ceramic skeleton figure.Gold French bling sections came next and the small cameos of Frida in either corner. The doll at the bottom references her unfulfilled desire for children.Resin was added to protect some of the elements. Measuring 4" x 2.75" x 1.0", this piece will hang wherever you like from the retaining ring on top. Signed and copyrighted on the back. One of a kind.

A paintbrush was added to pay homage to her paintings Finally the silver leaves and red stones were put in place. Resin was added to protect some of the elements. Measuring 4" x 2.75" x .25", this piece will hang wherever you like from the retaining ring on top. Signed and copyrighted on the back. One of a kind.
Imported from India in the early 1980's this heavy steampunk keychain features a tiny working magnifying glass. Old school-style carabiner unscrews to accept keys. While this would work great as a keychain, I could also see using in as a steampunk accessory, watch fob, etc. The magnifying glass measures 1.75" long and the chain and carabiner are about 3" . It appears to be solid brass with a wonderful dark patina. Let'em eat steam!
