Steampunk, ever evolving

Every time I pull out the antiqued wire or dig through my box of random metal bits or make another trip to the thrift store jewellery section, I end up moving in a totally new direction than I thought I was going to be going in.

I’m certainly not complaining! It’s wild and exciting to be constantly evolving.

Brooches! They're working out I think?

But what sets they are!! I can’t be sad about the time I spent hemming and hawing and trying new things and playing with patina and looking for dangly things and making decisions when the results end up like this:

    Hi Gayle,
    Me back again!! this is what I’m really into Steampunk jewellery, just Love it big, Bold & beautiful a statement in itself.
    You make it look sooo beautiful. A question tho?? when you put your gems into your pieces do you make separate bezels & place them? or do you set as you would for a Pave’ or Channel settings? just thought I would ask?? it just seems to put a different look onto Your Steampunk jewellery, just love it.
    Regards Ree
