Romancing the SteamPunk ...

Imagine being in the Victorian era with advanced machines still based on 19th century technology and a tad of the super natural. Gorgeous old world clothing with a touch of whimsy. For more information on steampunk please visit www.steampunk.com

I created this steampunk inspired necklace by hand stringing vintage buttons, assorted glass beads and recycled baubles on non-tarnish bronze copper wire. The wire was then crocheted into strands and weaved them together. Antique Mother of Pearl buttons, vintage flowered bronze and copper buttons, carved flower buttons, amber beads and glass jewel toned beads are intertwined into a beautiful free form necklace. The combination of these hues combined with the bronze wire has a victorian feel.
