Hello steampunk world!

Welcome to my steampunk themed blog. I will try to cover all of my creations I have made to-date over the coming weeks as well as starting to document some of my current projects. To start off I shall post a picture of a piece that I made for my wife, it uses entirely used watched parts and some leather thong for the necklace.

Steampunk NecklaceThe process: the total project time was about 2 hours, which included a thorough cleaning, grinding to ensure all pieces are flat and have no sharp edges, sanding with 200/300/500 and then 2000 grit sand paper before a final polishing of each piece (no pictures up to this stage). I then tested the position of everything and then epoxy glued everything in place and attached the leather once the glue was dried. – More procedure pictures after the break.

These are all the pieces I selected to use for this piece, I choose these so that they didn’t fill up too much space and make it look cluttered.
