Steampunk Accessories

Hey folks,

I spent the last 4 or 5 weeks in bed, one of them even in hospital with pneumonia. I am still recovering, getting lots of fresh air, inhaling, and getting my strength back, but I can tell you, I am bored as hell. Luckily, when I started being sick I spent a lot of time online and ordered crafting supplies.
On Saturday my last order finally arrived and I had a creativity flash. I grabbed my glue gun and all my jewelry supplies and made a whole set of Steampunk accessories. I love every single piece of them!!!

So, let me show off my creations:
Here you can see the whole set: two bracelets, one Alice band, a set of earrings, and an Alice in Wonderland themed pocket watch necklace.

I like the colour combination of this bracelet. The brass colour of the cuff goes well with the silver details of the ornament and the wings. I thought the little bead chain adds an elegant touch to it when you wear it.

The second bracelet I really love. There is only a little bit of silver included and the brass of the cuff goes perfectly with the watch and the wings. The perfect steampunk watch!

The Alice band is by far my favourite! It uses the same patterns as the watch, the elements are just all in silver. And instead of the watch a clockwork is added in the centre. Additionally, I used Swarowski crystals to add some colour and sparkle to it!

When I saw the Alice in Wonderland watch online, I just had to have it. If you look closely, you can see different elements from the story. I just added the chain and a few beads and charms to it.

I love the earrings! Simple, but very cute to wear and people look twice before they recognize the clockwork!

And finally, I spent Sunday afternoon sewing another tiny tophat, also Steampunk style! I added a litte bit of dry bronze powder colour to give it a little rusty look. And it makes it sparkle! :D

Hope you like them as much as I do!
