Steampunk is Art that is lived. Steampunks aka "Makers" are busy making, remaking, taking apart or putting together-SOMETHING. I consider Steampunk to be a lifestyle. They are the smartest and most interesting people I know. Goodbye plastic mass-produced factory pieces. Hello treasures that last a lifetime made of brass, glass and wood. Take some very passionate Neo-Victorian Ladies and Gentlemen, add technology, a splash of rum, send them to Pirate school and what do you get? A Steampunk!
This locket started out empty. I have been holding on to some very large clockworks gears for some time. They were too big to incorporate into a necklace on their own and the edges were very pointy and sharp. I knew they had a destiny, I just had to be patient until it came along. So Poof! I obtained the locket and the wheels literally starting turning. I hope you like it!
