Monday's Picks...Steampunk



I'll admit, I have been sitting in the back row when it comes to steampunk jewelry. Not a term I was familiar with and a little out of my realm when selling antique jewelry. But is it really that far off from what the Victorians did back in the 1800s? They reused elements from jewelry that were broken and incorporated them into fine jewelry pieces. So the definition of steampunk fashion is modern styles filtered through the Victorian era. No wonder these caught my eye! Who out there is the Jules Verne??
