Join author Jean Campbell as she shows you how to create romantic Victorian, Fantasy, and Mechanical Necklaces, Bracelets, and Earrings with that unmistakable steampunk edge.  

This how-to jewelry-making book features the work of an array of invited jewelry designers influenced by the growing Steampunk trend. In Steampunk circles, jewelry-makers are often master metalsmiths who combine found objects with fine metals to create elaborate pieces.

In Steampunk-Style Jewelry, the projects focus on "no fire" techniques like:

  • Simple stringing
  • Wirework
  • Hammering
  • Stamping
  • Gluing
  • Stitching
  • and off-loom beadwork

Even a beginner can create pieces in the style. Each project provides a complete materials and tools list, step-by-step instructions, and clear illustrations. This book offers a broad overview of a growing design trend that is part of the literary, industrial design, fashion, and popular culture scene. Readers will learn about the art movement through the many photographic sidebars that explore the many aspects of the trend.
