Steampunk refers to a subgenre of science fiction and sometimes fantasy literature that incorporates technology and aesthetic designs inspired by 19th-century industrial steam-powered machinery. When the term is applied to jewelry and art, the piece that is produced incorporates design concepts and/or repurposed materials from the Industrial Age with those of contemporary times that merge the two time periods into a cohesive whole. The steampunk jewelry presented here does exactly that, blending the old with the new.
This vintage-looking pendant along with its bronze-tone chain combines the constructs of a small gold-tone dragon fly suspended from large silver-tone angel wings, a three-dimensional bronze bird skull, a clock, and a variety of industrial gears to create a one-of-a-kind necklace. The chain has a lobster-claw clasp, and the chain can be shortened to fit your style.
Add this unusual steampunk necklace to your collection to make a unique statement at any gathering. Or, if you have a friend into steampunk jewelry, this bird skull and dragonfly necklace would make a fun and ideal gift.
