Steampunk Collection

So what is Steampunk Style??

Think H.G Well and Jules Verne's speculative history; think of international air travel in Hot Air Balloons and steam powered gadgets. Steampunk represent an alternative form of history, a technological pathway not taken. First appearing in the 1980’s and early 90’s and draws its roots from the Victorian & Edwardian era during the steam powered industrial revolution.

My lasted collection of jewellery draws on the industrial elements of the movement with Neo-Victorian influences.Pictured are my Neo-Victorian Cuff Bangle, Tree of Life Necklace and my Swallow & Gears Earrings
