Excited to share my new steampunk design scarf accessory. In this design, I have combined a handcrafted semicircle with wire-wrapped labradorite and aquamarine marine beads, a brass German clock cog, and an opalite heart. It’s adorned with several Tibetan brass charms including a guitar, treble clef, quaver, semiquaver, and silver-tone star. Available for pick up at Steven Street Gallery Yandina Qld.

Steampunk is a style of fiction 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.
