There is more to Steampunk Jewelry than cogs and old watch parts. I see a metaphoric beauty crafted into antiquated artifacts and antiqued brass settings. Using the recovered remnants of yesteryear, I create statement pieces that reflect a visual identity with Jules Verne, Amelia Earhart, H.G. Wells or Mata Hari. A piece may reflect the mystic realism of an airship captain, the romantic victorian sensuality of absinthe green stones on silver, or the postapocalyptic industrial style of a dystopian fantasy.
