This gorgeous Frida Kahlo statement necklace features her in an oval setting which I have riveted to a copper piece which I had previously etched and patinated. A metal flower adorns the top of the piece and it dangles by a retaining ring from a vintage ethnic chain with dangles. The centerpiece measures 1.5 x 1.25 ", the chain measures 18 ". The chain has some imperfections as to missing "stones" that are considered to be part of the design. ( I liked the way it looked with some present and some missing.)

A brass cuff I etched with a star pattern forms the basis for this Steampunk bracelet. Then I bolted on a vintage style star over a piece of silver sequin mesh purchased in Paris to add a bit of bling. The cuff measures about 1 " wide and 6" around and is lightweight and easy to wear.
This steampunk ring features a favorite insect, the cicada. I soldered a sterling spiral on either side and top of the body. Then it all went through my witches' brew of patinas resulting in the gorgeous display of brown with silver highlights that you see here. The ring band easily adjusts from a size 6 up. If you have a smaller finger, convo me or leave a message to seller and I will adjust it smaller for you. I am a trained silversmith and have riveted this piece together for many years of pleasurable adornment. Let'em eat steam!

This Steampunk or Victorian necklace features one of my favorite authors, Virginia Woolf. I have placed an archival photo of her under resin on an oval bezel pendant complete with bow. I ornamented the bow with a section of pave sequins purchased in Paris. A retaining ring allows the pendant to hang gracefully from a 16" gold-plated snake chain with safety clasp. I am a trained silversmith and this piece is riveted together for years of adornment. A one-of-a-kind piece to honor an amazing woman.

This Steampunk or Victorian bracelet started with the brass cuff- it measures about 1" wide. I took the brass cuff and embellished it with various colors of metal leaf. Then used brass rivets to attach a vintage-style filigree. Then I riveted on the cicada. The bracelet has been clear-coated to protect it. Cuff measures around 6" . With the enhanced insectoid steampunk vibe, this one of a kind piece would be lovely with your best Steampunk corset. Full STEAM ahead!

This steampunk or Victorian bracelet started with the brass cuff which I etched with a squiggle design. It measures about 1 1/ 4" wide. I riveted on the central disc over a beautiful piece of vintage-style filigree. The central disc I made from resin and inset gold-leafed eggshell and glitter for maximum bling and sparkle. The cuff has been clear-coated and is ready to ship. This stunning piece would be a great personal adornment.
This Steampunk or Victorian necklace features into an antique watchmaker's tin half which is about 2" in diameter. Thinking about the transition from late Summer into early Fall and insects completing their life cycles, I made what I think is one of my memento mori pieces. The center graphic is from an antique book. It's held in place in an antique watchmaker's tin with some bronze shavings. The opalescent flower and insect dangle lighten it up a bit.The tin half has been riveted to a retaining ring allowing it to dangle gracefully from a 18" vintage-style chain with a safety clasp. This necklace is already made and ready to ship. You will receive this exact item, not something similar.

A Steampunk necklace at its simplest. A beautiful and worn antique key, perhaps hand made, is wirewrapped with a vintage-style bead to dangle from a vintage slinky copper-tone chain. The chain measures 16" and has a safety clasp. The key is just under 1 1/2" long and 3/4" wide. It's marked EverLock Co. and USA. A simple, yet elegant way to get your steam on!
These steampunk goggles were created using welding goggles that I have modified for your wearing pleasure. Wanting these to look more like vintage brass goggles, I gold leafed the goggles rims using faux gold leaf, then I added a filigree and copper accent at each temple. Lenses shown are clear glass, elastic head band is adjustable and I added filigrees to the black lenses that also come with these for a change of look. The length of the nose piece can be adjusted by removed the lens rims.
When Prof. Erstwhile Entwhistle happened upon the wreckage of the Time Machine he was shocked at what he saw. Yes, the beautiful hand-etched brass ribbing was intact, even Lady Matilda Machination's gorgeous and ingenious control panel was present. Many other inspired and well-crafted items for journeying through space and time survived the crash. What puzzled him most however was the lack of human remains. Not a bone, scrap of cloth, hank of hair was present. A chill went up and down his back as all that he found were these time-traveler goggles. It is with much regret that he has entrusted me to put these up for sale with the proceeds earmarked for the repair of his precious mechanism. Let'em eat steam!
This is one in a series of small sculptures, also known as wearable crowns, that I made for a Solo Show which was awarded to me by Judy Chicago. The show was at the Durham Art Guild.. This crown is an assemblage using found and fabricated objects including vintage chandelier parts, door and drawer escutcheons, tintypes, Swarovski crystals,a high-quality resin cabochon with Victorian children on it, vintage brass and epoxy resin. It measures 7" tall at the highest part of the front and about 7" in diameter which gives it a circumference in the 22-23" range--the size of an average female head. It is not adjustable. I am a trained silversmith and have put this crown together with rivets, durable enough to become a family heirloom for generations to come. It has been clear-coated to protect the patinas, both those of age and those I have created. I accept commissions for these crowns, they range in the $750-$3,000 bracket and generally take a month or more to complete. LAYAWAY AVAILABLE
