I thought I'd create a few pieces of Steampunk jewellery in readiness for next Sunday's craft fair at Gisborough Hall.
I love the rather masculine cogs and wheels and weird "inventions" some artisans have been selling on the likes of ebay and Etsy, but decided on a more feminine style.
I've altered some wooden hearts using various coloured embossing powders and UTEE and decorated them with tiny cogs and wheels, brass and copper findings, etc. I've arranged the pieces on brass and copper chain and added antique-style keys and other findings to compliment the mini fob watches I bought in specifically for this project.

Almost didn't put these on... sorry Chrissy (ATC Club), hope I'm not too late for your Vintage swap? Well, to make up for it I made 6, so you get to keep one! I've used layers of organza, lace and embossing powders on a couple of these, then burned holes here and there to give them that aged feel - hence the grainy texture on the attached pics (they look better in the flesh)!
