Day 11 Steampunk Jewelry

I made this using an old pin of my mother's and an earring I think was my sister's with some new gears and things.

Steampunk Jewelry time again! I love actually making things. I got home very late today but had new bits to work with. I made two pieces because I fell behind a bit in having to turn yesterday’s into a two part delayed project. I did get some metallic paint on the way home though.

I almost have a story in mind these inspired, maybe later in the week it will be a full idea.

This earring was made with the last piece of the earing I used pieces of several days ago, gears, a Chinese coin, and bits of the earring used in the Pin today.

To the left is a Steampunk Alice Pin. Again, I used bits of broken, old jewelry; removed and added things. The bow was my mothers so I didn’t want to hide it. I used a Chinese coin, same one as in the earring to the  right. The gear also sort of reminds me of a steering wheel or wheel, so it has several things in common with the earring.

To the right is a Steampunk Travel Earring. I had a piece left from what I made the other day, some new bits, and an idea. I was thinking of the Victorian love of bringing things home from around the world and the influences you see in the design. I love travel and have been a lot of places, so this appeals to me. I used the Chinese coin and the passport to represent travel and the chime to represent the places you enjoy, and the gears and bits to represent the airships and travel machinery in my mind.
