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.

Once Was

Now Is
1. Stalactite - Earrings - savagesalvage
3. The Botanist's Herbology Journal - DeathMau
4. earth orange recycled bike clock - 1byliz
Much of Steampunk is already Earth friendly. Bits and pieces cobbled together to form the perfect piece, but today I thought I consciously pick some recycled pieces. From using just a found object or two all the way to a robot dog, keep reusing and happy Earth Day!

So Not Subtle
I just spent some time in a giant cave looking at huge rock formations formed over thousands of years. So when I got home, I loved for necklaces that had the same heavy structure that should last many, if not thousands of years.

I think what I like best about these pieces is the heft. They are all big, bold black and silver chunks of jewelry that will not be ignored. They are also full of unexpected steampunk animals.

3. Royal Airship - TammyPryce
4. Steampunk Airship Captain Cyanotype Fabric Patch - SkirtLifters
I am fully aware that I tend to pick rather expensive item. This is not done on purpose, in fact I rarely look at the prices unless I really want it for myself. Today, I found some great little pieces that won't break the bank, but are still great pieces don't you think?

Not Just A Little Leather & Lace1. Wonderland Locket In a Dream you Dreamed about me - ravenevejewelry
2. Custom Shaped 8 Panel Neck Corset - electradesigns
3. Custom made - Brown Leather 'Outland' Collar - Forgefashion
4. Put a bit of Punk in Steampunk - black choker - LadyLamb
As you might be aware, I like a bold neck piece. What I don't like is manufactured lace with chains and baubles attached. Call me elitist, but if you didn't make the lace yourself, I'll find it feature you here. If you make work like this however, well, this is what happens.
