Making Steampunk Jewelry
By Victoria Pann on October 24, 2012
Steamcon Seattle is this weekend! What to wear? Gotta have some steampunk jewelry, that's for sure. So off to Michael's I flew when my daughter told me they have a new line of jewelry making supplies called Industrial Chic. I was hoping they'd have the jewelry pre-made and I could snag some with my 40% off coupon. But since they only had little baggies of jewelry making supplies, I decided it was time to put on my Madame Fastastic wizardry hat and see if it would infuse me with creative genius.
Not likely, the hat said. Rather a grumpy ol' thing, like the sorting hat in Harry Potter. I took it off, threw it on the floor, stomped on it and put it back on. O-KAY, it hollered, I'll help a leetle. Go get some super glue.
So I did and this is what we came up with:
See that jewel on the left side of the bracelet in the third photo? My daughter immediately told me it was a time machine crystal and knew if I wore the bracelet, it would engage the time machine. I stared at her with my mouth open.
Who knew this stuff was inherited?
