Steampunk jewelry pieces often utilize discarded and vintage materials to create intricate and distinctive new designs.
Many steampunk styles incorporate findings from castoff jewelry and parts of other objects.
These handmade items feature upcyled pieces and reused objects to produce unique, durable jewelry.
Repurposed watch gears are often used to create stylish signature timepieces. Vintage lockets, pendants and pocket watches can be updated and revived with a crafty hand. This old pocket watch was given some inspiration from Mother Nature and turned into a biomechanically inspired Kafka Clock.
This homage to Victorian era nature pieces actually contains an insect specimen, though this one may only be for those who like to wear their science experiments.
Gears are also used in many other objects, like in these spectacular rings.
These cufflinks feature antique 1940’s era wristwatch movement parts.
These were made with a mix of found objects.
Steampunk creations often reuse items in an unexpected way, like this stunning brooch that was made from an old brass doorbell and a clip-on earring. Embellished with jewels, it makes a classy accessory.
Even the smallest of items can be upcycled by the imaginative, like this wooden game piece that was given a mixed media treatment.
With a mix of industrial, scientific and mechanically anatomical, steampunk jewelry puts dated pieces back to work.
