My elegant Adventurer’s Necklace
The design spark for this necklace came out of melding the two movies “Death on the Nile” and “Out of Africa”, in my brain. Oh, and then a little “Murder on the Orient Express” was thrown in to even everything out. Capturing the glamour of the early part of the last century, with the untamed beauty of foreign locales was my mission.
This is my little tribute to the genius of science fiction, and the hero of steampunk culture Jules Verne. I designed this pendant so that the frame would have the feel of a porthole on a submarine, complete with worn metal and rivets. The chains dangling from it would mimic octopus tentacles.
A steampunk treehouse, built for the movie “City of Lost Children”.
I think I’ll make something like this over the next couple of days. But on an alligator clip instead of a comb. And maybe with more sparklies

This is one of my favorite pendants I make. It is so intricate with layer upon layer of tiny clock hands. That in the end it kind of reminds me of a steampunk android’s sternum. But then it also has a German ironwork feel to it as well. http://www.etsy.com/listing/28250687/gothic-necklace-neo-victorian-steampunk
