|Copper Spiral and Brass Gear Earrings|
A kind customer once wrote that they liked my style because I made pieces that went beyond the "Gears! SQUEE!" sentiment of most steampunk jewelry. While I definitely do lapse into an odd state of bliss when I see exquisite watch parts, I do try to go beyond the usual when it comes to designing my pieces. Sometimes it works, sometimes not.
I think these work. I made and sold (!) a similar pair years ago, and I wanted to perfect the techniques involved and even improve on the effect; the main difference is that the previous spiral earrings were not given a verdigris finish. I happen to love how these turned out! They are the same length, despite the difference in the photograph; I wanted them to dangle as I took it, and I used the only decorative straight-ish thing I had as the hanger!
Of course, these DreamSteam original design earrings are for sale on ArtFire. I hope someone likes these enough to give them a home. (They even come in a pretty red organza ribbon drawstring gift bag!) These have now sold. (Thank you!)
Edit 11/10: Here is a new pair of copper spiral earrings for sale on ArtFire. I kept the design is similar, but added even more gears and more beautiful green verdigris finish!
Since I like these a lot, I will try to keep some earrings of this style in my shop at all times, so if these sell and you do not see more, do check in at my shop soon and/or leave me a note that you would like a pair. Thanks for looking!
