Victorian Steampunk Jewelry

Steampunk is a sub-genre of science fiction that typically features steam-powered machinery, especially in a setting inspired by industrialized Western civilization during the 19th century. Steampunk works are often set in an alternative history of the 19th century's British Victorian era. It may also, though not necessarily, incorporate additional elements from the genres of fantasy, horror, historical fiction, alternate history, or other branches of speculative fiction, making it often a hybrid genre. Steampunk also refers to any of the artistic styles, clothing fashions, or subcultures, that have developed from the aesthetics of steampunk fiction, Victorian-era fiction, art nouveau design, and films from the mid-20th century.

Victorian Steampunk is my niche in jewelry design. Sometimes my jewelry leans to the technological side of this genre, but other times it leans heavily toward the Victorian side. Many of my pieces incorporate antique or vintage jewelry in them.

Here are some of my Victorian leaning designs.
