I can’t help it; I like looking at gadgets & gears. I’ve been surrounded by talk of car engines and all things mechanical for over 35 years. I’m married to an engineer and all 4 of our kids are engineers. We go to agricultural museums to admire the old steam threshers for heaven’s sake!
So it’s not totally surprising that I am fascinated by the Steampunk trend. I’m not really trying to travel back in time or live in the world of Jules Verne. I just think the old-time gears and pipes have a weird sort of beauty to them. They have become a kind of art.
Here is a link to one artist’s vision of Star Wars characters redesigned in the steampunk style. I think I’d love to see the Star Wars movies redone this way!
If you want to see some of the steampunk style jewelry so popular among crafters today, look on etsy for these creations.
