One of my original steampunk jewelry pieces is featured in the new book 1000 Steampunk Creations: Neo-Victorian Fashion, Gear, and Art. I just received my copy last week.
With 1,000 color photographs, it’s a “steampunk yearbook” of Neo-Victorian artists who create jewelry, fashion, accessories, headgear, artwork, home decorations and curious contraptions. It’s an incredible testament to the beauty, marvel and creativity of the steampunk style.
I’m on page 257. There are two pictures of my “Steampunk Faery” necklace. This piece is a larger, more complex version of the “Horological Faery Gadget” featured in the 2009 book Steampunk Style Jewelry edited by Jean Campbell. I’d initially offered the more complex Steampunk Faery to Jean, but Steampunk Style Jewelry is mainly a how-to book, so she was looking for something easier for people to make. The Horological Faery Gadget has two watch pieces for wings, where the Steampunk Faery has four (two larger, two smaller, like butterfly wings). And the Steampunk Faery has clockwork wings full of tiny gears set in Ice Resin, the Horological Faery Gadget does not.
I’m thrilled to be included in this book with so many amazing artists and pioneers in the steampunk style!
