Making Steampunk Jewelry

5 years ago

Steamcon Seattle is this weekend!  What to wear?  Gotta have some steampunk jewelry, that's for sure.  So off to Michael's I flew when my daughter told me they have a new line of jewelry making supplies called Industrial Chic.  I was hoping they'd have the jewelry pre-made and I could snag some with my 40% off coupon.  But since they only had little baggies of jewelry making supplies, I decided it was time to put on my Madame Fastastic wizardry hat and see if it would infuse me with creative genius. 

Not likely, the hat said.  Rather a grumpy ol' thing, like the sorting hat in Harry Potter.  I took it off, threw it on the floor, stomped on it and put it back on.  O-KAY, it hollered, I'll help a leetle.  Go get some super glue.

So I did and this is what we came up with:

See that jewel on the left side of the bracelet in the third photo?  My daughter immediately told me it was a time machine crystal and knew if I wore the bracelet, it would engage the time machine.  I stared at her with my mouth open. 

Who knew this stuff was inherited?
