Steampunk Inspired Jewelry

My earliest memories include watching Victorian and other period movies with my mom. She had the penchant of dressing me up in frilly outfits and granny boots. I also remembered playing with quaint household gadgetry like wine decanters with musical boxes and brass cigarette dispensers, which my family had collected through the years. I was raised the Steampunk way without even being aware of it. :-)

My friend Kimi told me today that they had the Industrial Chic line of jewelry pieces available at Michael's. She gave me the link, and I knew I had to get some of them to add to my collection. So here are what I came up with...

Both necklaces are 18" long. The necklace on the left has spinners and gears from Tim Holtz, and the cameo is from Madame Delphine. I made the necklace on the right for hubby. He was the one who taught me to play dominoes, hence the choice of pendant. He also picked the muse token as a dangler for the pendant.
