All the cute and the precious have been found. All the kitties and puppies have homes. The candy colored, the eco-friendly, the hipsters of the handmade are all duly covered elsewhere. Here I will find the slightly odd, the darkly beautiful, the elegant and steamy pieces of goodness. I am very particular in my tastes and though I promise you that I will share nothing but the most intriguing of my discoveries, you may not always like them. I must also confess that I have no real artistic nor fashion background to base my finds upon. These are simply discoveries dug up from the depths of etsy or perhaps elsewhere, brushed off and presented for your approval.

Geared Up

Finding original SteamPunk jewelry is hard, really hard.
1. Wondering - rhinestonesandrust
2. Flux Capacitor Industrial Steampunk Earrings No.7 Limited Edition - insectus
3. Love Steamed - Steampunk bracelet - CatherinetteRings
4. Keyed up steampunk necklace - dayslonggone
You've seen them, the same old recycled watch adorned with a jewel or two. They've been made into necklaces, rings and cuff links. You know what, I'm sick of them. Almost every piece done the same way. It's boring, so I went on a quest through over 650 pages for something different and I did find a few. They are still adorned with the obligatory gears, but something is unique about these pieces, they each caught my eye in a sea of gears. They offer different silhouettes than the norm and I hope you like them too.

I went to look at that first piece, and saw it had sold- good for rhinestonesand rust. I liked it for the soft patina, and the clock arm looks like a ritual blade. very cool.

I can't even express how much I agree with you about watch guts with a couple things glued on to them. I'm tired of them! I refuse to make them!

So, next time you're looking for steampunk jewelry, maybe you can check my shop too ;) Though I'm not sure anything of mine is as cool as these pieces. Especially love those flux capacitor earrings.

Thanks for this compliment!
I love that every time I come to play on your blog I find something new, despite feeling like I've seen everything on Etsy before.
