There’s something appealing about re-purposed parts, jewelry with exposed cogs, and wearing Victorian-inspired elements of time travel, mad science, combining the natural with the mechanical. Steampunk has its roots in the Victorian era and the fantastical works of such authors as Jules Verne (Around the World in Eighty Days, The Steam House, and 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea), H.G. Wells (The Invisible Man, The Time Machine), and even Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein to some degree.
This piece has a central gear accented with brass filigree links and deep green crystals in a "Y" style necklace. It also features a cute heart-shaped filigree lobster clasp.
Welcome to Romance and Rhinestones. I have been handcrafting jewelry for over ten years and love creating one of a kind items for you to enjoy. I don't limit myself to one style, but rather follow the inspiration I feel when I see the wonderful colors and textures of the materials. Sometimes dainty and delicate, sometimes bold and chunky, sometimes even a little funky. Happy shopping!
