Steampunk Formal Set by lilibat Steampunk Formal Set by lilibat
Finished the necklace and earrings to go with my ball gown. It is meant to be Steampunk formal jewelry. No gears, so what makes it Steampunk? I mixed a Victorian frou frou sort of aesthetic with a practical industrial element to give it 'that' sort of look. In amongst the filigree, swarovski heliotrope stones, bats and roses you can see tiny brass screws poking out. The little screws are helping to hold everything together, they aren't just there for looks. The necklace and earrings are almost entirely soldered, I only used a little bit of epoxy for some of the more tiny bits.

How much would you charge to make this same necklace in dark emerald and purple?

I can never make these exactly the same since I often use vintage and limited supply findings. I could make something very similar though. Would you want just the necklace or earrings as well?

Probably both. How much would you charge?

It would be $300 for necklace and earrings.

Not that it's not worth it, but I think my hub would freak if he found out that I'd spent that much on costume jewelry. Any pity for a poor deviant that thinks your stuff is amazing? (begging quietly)

Sorry but I really can't afford to ask any less. I use quality materials and it takes time to put these together.

As far as being poor, neither my husband or I have been employed for over a year at this point and we have a mortgage so I don't exactly have a lot of room for compromise.

I'm totally surprised that your not making a mad living off selling your awesome stuff. Like I said before, the hub would freak if I spent that much on costume, be it amazing or not. No pretties for me I'm afraid. :( Maybe we'll both hit the lottery or something. Good luck to you and your hub on your quest for funds. :hug:

This is even more beautiful when I can se it bigger! I love it! Where on earth did you find those beautiful stones?
how long did it take you to make this? Did you start with a plan? or did you just start putting things together to see what you end up with?

I have been collecting the blue/purple stones for years now.

I start those big pieces with a vague idea of what I want and just sort of let it grow based on what I have and how things look.

Wow this is so stunning, if you were selling this, I so would have bought this set for my grad dress :meow: :heart:

The violet I think, is just so bold, that it just says "steampunk" as it's paired with a light brass colour.

They compliment each other so well. :D

:omg: This is stunning! I love all the details you've worked in - the longer I stare, the more I notice. Over all, my favorite part is the color combination you've created. :)

After first seeing this, I immediantly went off in search of heliotrope-colored crystals but only found one cross and some small bicones. Where did you manage to get so many different shapes and sizes?
