Jewelry Punk Jewelry

Awhile ago I took a Steam Punk jewelry class. I had actually signed up for a soldering class in the early spring and couldn't attend. When I saw this class offered I decided to use my credit to attend. I'm still not sure what Steam Punk means. It's a trend in style of clothing, jewelry and etc. Think gears, pocket watches, keys, wire and beyond. This is the ring I made. Super easy.
These are earrings made from pocket watch keys. Super easy as well.
The little bottle has a little strip of paper in it with the word cozy on it. Actually it is cosy.....but it is spelled both ways. There is a dog tag, rusty key, teeny key, three beads, pocket watch key and a pocket watch charm. Alot of junk on a chain. I actually just finished this today.
Here are all three things I made.
I bought the cameo and the heart from the instructor. The industrial chic things came from Michaels.....Viv had shown them on her blog. Some pieces are missing because I gave them away. I hope to change things up with my necklaces for fun. The class came with all kinds of things.....lots of little parts, jump rings, shredded paper, glitter, pictures. The class was fun but I doubt I will be making this kind of jewelry. I don't have the patience for jewelry making. I think I will stick to paper and wood and embroidery. Speaking of paper, I am packing for a scrap booking getaway starting tomorrow. I am excited. I only know a couple of the ladies. It's in a store out in the boonies. They have sleeping quarters.......all in one room and one bathroom. Oh my goodness that is scary. I can always come back home.......I will let you know how it goes. Last getaway for scrap booking was with my cousin Jo . Today she would have been 60. Happy Birthday Jo......sure miss her.

Fun jewelry Debby!

Oh- That last sentence just gave me a little clutch, Debby. I know how much you miss her and those words don't begin to touch the loss.

I can just IMAGINE you with a bunch of ladies you don't know-scrapbooking with them. You will have them all laughing so hard they will be trying to rush the bathroom all at once and probably pee their pants. Do you think I have summed up YOUR personality adequately? Blessings to you..and Happy birthday to your Jo. xo Diana

Hi Debby, I so admire you, you are so brave and have no problems going to new places and making friends. Have a great time. I loved your steam punk jewelery, too had you don't have teenagers, they would be wild for all of it! Your cousin is with you always, in your heart! Love, Penny

Steam Punk is very interesting I've been aware of it but have hard time getting a handle on it exactly.
That get together sounds like fun for you ladies, yes please keep us posted on how that went. Nan

I just heard of steampunk in the last year. It took me a while to "get" it, and not still completely sure, but I really like your pieces. Fun.

What fun jewelry! I've always heard of steampunk but wasn't sure what it was.

A scrapbooking getaway sounds like so much fun! Oh I hope it is...I hope you are there right now and that you didn't come home!
The steampunk pieces are neat! I have tons of keys...just never get around to it like I thought I would.
OK, I think I have your email fixed. Will you check mine, and get back to me when you get home?
We must figure this out!
Talk to you soon! ERICA :)

Debby, The things you make are really cute. I have seen so many different types of jewelry this year, at craft shows. Smiles, Susie
