OOAK Steampunk Necklace

Steampunk is the hottest rage in vintage and antique jewelry, and its style captures a simpler time when steam was the main source of power and intricate gadgets and instruments were all the rage.

If you'd like to own this beautiful, handmade vintage necklace, just click on the photo.

This OOAK 18″ vintage Steampunk necklace features a large antique brass faerie that measures 40mm wide x 30mm long (1-5/8″ x 1-1/4″).

 An antique gold-plated locket dangles from her feet and is adorned with a vintage watch movement.   The locket opens and it measures 20mm long (just over 3/4″)- just large enough for photos or a lock of hair.

Two dangles also hang from the locket – an antique brass key and a dangle made of Swavorski 6mm crystal bicone and gold-plated bead caps, turban beads wired with a Bali fancy end pin. The chain and toggle clasp are antique brass.

 This is a very feminine and pretty necklace, just loaded with romantic vintage charm, and it tells the story of a time lost to the ages.  It echoes the sentiment “time flies,” and we all know how very true that is!
