I'm also creating some steampunk inspired jewelry which I'm slowly loading to my new Etsy shop. You can visit my Etsy right from this blog just click on the right handside where you see My Etsy store items.

"Steampunk" is the science-fiction of the Steam Age; the Industrial Revolution re-imagined with the advantage of modern hindsight. Drawing upon the wealth of historical technology and the scientific fantasies of the Victorian and Edwardian periods, steampunk seeks to reinvent modern wonders (such as the computer) as the people of that era might have envisioned them. Following in the footsteps of Jules Verne and H. G. Wells, steampunk authors blend history, science and imagination into a world of wonder that might have been. -G.D. Falksen
