A taste of steampunk

Steampunk is currently pretty popular (think Victorian tech writ large with a vintage/goth feel to it) and I must confess I do like it. So, aside from plotting and planning some new and splendid garments - a trip to Camden maybe, plus some DIY - I thought I'd try a couple of pendants. They involve a lot of components, so were pretty difficult to make. Hope you like!

Steel and brass with a bit of clock in there for good steampunk measure. The whole thing's about 30mm high. Fiddly.

A more overtly mechanical approach - as much a tiny sculpture as a piece of jewellery - hurrah for cogs & springs! Hopefully later versions will have moving parts...
