How to Make Steampunk Jewelry

How to Make Steampunk Jewelry
Wikipedia defines Steampunk as “a subgenre of fantasy and speculative fiction that came into prominence in the 1980s and early 1990s. The term denotes works set in an era or world where steam power is still widely used-usually the 19th century, and often set in Victorian era England-but with prominent elements of either science fiction or fantasy, such as fictional technological inventions like those found in the works of H. G. Wells and Jules Verne, or real technological developments like the computer occurring at an earlier date. Other examples of steampunk contain alternate history-style presentations of “the path not taken” of such technology as dirigibles or analog computers; these frequently are presented in an idealized light, or a presumption of functionality. Steampunk is often associated with cyberpunk and shares a similar fanbase and theme of rebellion, but developed as a separate movement (though both have considerable influence on each other).

Wholesale Jewelry | Costume & Boutique Style - Fashion Bella CraftyBitch 101: Recycled Steampunk Necklace Tutorial The other day, I mentioned another current craft obsession. I am officially addicted to steampunk! In particular, I have been creating steampunk jewelry using as many recycled materials as possible. For example, the necklace pictured above is made from a cranberry juice bottle cap! I have a lot more ideas and a few works in progress, but you can see what I have finished so far at my new Artfire shop, Refashionista. I also have been writing an arts and crafts column at Examiner, and today I posted a tutorial complete with photos showing how I made the necklace shown above! I am also working on a tutorial for making a pendant from a watch case, so stay tuned!

washer necklaces We've been having a lot of fun this past year making these adorable washer necklaces. They are pretty inexpensive to make and you can make them to match any wardrobe. Supplies:WashersScrapbook paperE6000Diamond Glaze or Crystal Effects or similar productHole punch or Exacto KnifeLeather necklaceNail File or Emory Board If you have a hole punch the same size as your washer you can punch out the paper. If you do not, the glue the washer to the backside of the paper you want and then after it dries, use the Exacto knife to cut out the washer and the center holes. Next, take a nail file and gently file the edges to smooth it out and if you have a smaller file (these can be found at scrapbook stores or craft stores) carefully file out the center hole too. Your washers should now look like this. The next step is to apply the Diamond Glaze. When the glaze dries, your new "pendants" are ready to be added to a nice leather necklace for a unique fashion accessory.

Steampunk Jewelry Made Simple | STEAMED! May 19, 2011 by suzannelazear Today we welcome Brenda Sue of B’sue Boutiques who’s jewelry supply store not only has everything you need to make neat Steampunk jewelry, but she also has loads of instructional videos for people like me who love to make things, but in all honesty can’t craft their way out of a cardboard box. STEAMPUNK JEWELRY MADE SIMPLE: Breaking It Down to Cogs and Gears By B’Sue Love the Steampunk lifestyle? Check out this sweet Steampunk pendant I made: As this piece is raw brass, you’ll want to patina it. When you have achieved the color you want on the brass, simply seal it with Renaissance Wax. Into that cap, I poured a bit of mixed ICE RESIN. I also inlaid a circlet ring found at our website, as well as a tiny propeller. The trick is to pour only enough resin to inlay the bottom of the propeller so that it still spins. The actual pendant is available at B’sue Boutiques right here: How would you finish it? Come on over to B’sue Boutiques and check the place out!

Stone Filled Metal Bracelet As of last autumn, the hardware store has become a new source of inspiration for me. I have quite a few projects lined up using odds and ends found at the hardware store, all of which are still fashion/home decor related. I'm excited to share them! Past hardware store related projects included the Wood Coaster Set and the Vinyl Tube Bracelets. Here's yet another one: a bangle bracelet, embellished with a copper test cap filled with jewelry gel and stones. As for jewelry pendant gel...I've actually never even used this before, so this was something new for me. See how I made the bracelet, below! Supplies: - Small stones/pebbles (I bought these at a touristy cave exhibit in Pennsylvania, when I was in elementary school!) - Metal bangles (I used 2 thin bangles, but you can also use 1 thick bangle) - Jewelry pendant gel. You can also use clear nail polish, though this is a lot more manageable, with little to no odor. 2) Make sure that the layer of gel is even.

Anthro Knockoff ~ Sparkled Silk Wrap Bracelet I am loving the look of all the layered and wrapped bracelets that are popular right now. It’s so fun to mix and match them – you can really add style and color to your outfits with just a few little bracelets! So when I came across the Sparkled Silk Wrap Bracelet at Anthropologie, I knew I had to have it for my very own. By which I mean that I had to make it, as opposed to paying $38 for it. Now – mine’s not silk. Or gold filled, like Anthro’s. Ready to see? I will definitely be making more of these! It looks really cute matched up with different bracelets too! It would make a great gift too! Here’s what you’ll need to make yours: 1 strand of rhinestones – 28″ long2 rhinestone end caps2 small jump rings2 large jump ringsE-6000 or other strong gluesoft yarnlobster clasp Start by gluing each end of your rhinestone strand into an end clasp. Cut two long strands of yarn – each about 4 yds long. Now we’re just going to wrap the yarn around the rhinestones. That finishes off your bracelet!

Steampunk Leather Top Hat Tutorial I have received several requests for a tutorial on making my steampunk leather top hat, shown above, and so, here it is. The first drawing shows the three pattern pieces (not to scale). The wave on the bottom of the crown is what gives the brim its distinctive curve. The pattern below is the one that I used to make my top hat. The crown joins at the back with a butt seam. You should use a lightweight but firm vegetable tanned leather. See the diagram at the lower right for construction details. This is the partially made hat. Dragonfly Roundup Bracelet Dragonfly Roundup Bracelet InstructionsDesigned by Artbeads You and your little one will both be impressed with this incredible woven design that's simple to make.

Step three: Bring the black threaded needle under and to the outside of the bottom cord. Step four: After you string your last bead, knot the thread around the bottom cord, wrap around the leather then pass through the wrap and secure it with hypo cement.
