Steampunk Project #1

Bead Embellished Buttons
design by Michelle Mach

First, Leslie Rogalski explains exactly what steampunk is, and tells us about its origins in the science-fiction world. One of the differences between it- and vintage-style is the more mechanical aspect of its elements, using pieces which once functioned rather than which were purely decorative. The exception would be fantasy charms and references, especially winged creatures such as angels and birds, which are characteristic of the Victorian times in general. Next, use your favorite vintage or funky fabrics to make your own bead embroidered buttons with Michelle Mach's Bead Embellished Buttons. These bead embroidered buttons would make great clasps for a necklace or bracelet!

Making  jewelry can be challenging, but the Beading Daily experts have you covered.  

Steampunk Project #2

Multi-Metal and Cold-Connected bracelet
design by Helen Driggs

If you love using metal clay, Helen Driggs' Multi-Metal and Cold-Connected bracelet project is a perfect example of the industrial side of steampunk jewelry. A beginner can easily create the circle units in this bracelet - but beware: making them becomes highly addictive. Once you master the construction of the circles, you'll want to vary them and take your jewelry further.

Steampunk Project #3

Sassy Sisters bracelet
design by Jean Campbell

For a fun twist on jewelry, try Jean Campbell's Sassy Sisters bracelet – it uses tiny keys, buttons and charms to create a personal statement bracelet. This bracelet celebrates the trio of women in the designer's family. Because the photographs are so subtle, they will probably just look like small, organic patterns from far away, but the wearer will know she's surrounded by the women who love her. Add your own special photos to charms or buttons to create a special jewelry keepsake.

Beads, baubles and steampunk

By now, most of you have at least heard the term "steampunk." Coined in the 1980's, the term refers to a genre of fantasy and science fiction featuring steam-powered machinery and Victorian-style decorative arts, circa nineteenth century. It's a style that has an industrial edginess yet is romantic, which endears itself to many of us.

Vintage or steampunk?

Think H.G. Wells, Bram Stoker, and Jules Verne. Think of movies such as Wild, Wild West, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, and The Time Machine. And if you picture the details of the stuff in those films, the buttons and keys, the gears and cogs, the use of metal as a decorative element—and a highly romantic spirit—you have some idea of what will add this style to your jewelry.
