I’m a reader as well as a maker and I love any form of speculative fiction. Imagine my delight when I discovered that steampunk not only produces some fantastic stories, but also an entire world of gadgets and items. When I saw steampunk jewellery the first time, I thought, Oh my goodness, this is what I want to do!

This pendant is made primarily with copper and artistic wire. I love the colour of the glass bead. I think its blue complement the natural colour of copper in a way that make both of them shine. The gears I use all come from real vintage clocks and believe me, working them into the jevellery is a hell of a job. I don’t use glue, I only wire wrap. It is a time consuming job, but very rewarding. I really like how this pendant turned out.
