Excited to share my whimsical musician's design steampunk pendant, using a large vintage brass cog from a Vintage German Clock, bolts, and smaller brass cogs. The design also incorporates a handcrafted sterling silver treble clef that I hammer textured, angel wings and a guitar Tibetan silver charm, and brass chain all connected with brass wire wrap. The pendant has a drop of 10cm and comes with a 60cm leather cord.

Steampunk is a style of fiction having to do with a semi-fictional world where old machinery from the Victorian 19th century is still being used. Technologies that were new or important to the Victorians, such as steam power, clockwork, or electricity, are big themes in steampunk.
The earliest inspirations for steampunk as a literary genre come from the works of H.G. Wells and Jules Verne. Both wrote science fiction set in their own times (the late 1800s) that featured advanced technology powered by steam, hence the “steam” in steampunk, and clockwork, including flying machines, submarines, and time machines.
The steampunk aesthetic tends to be loosely based on the Victorian era and the American Wild West and features anachronistic technology.
