Steampunk Jewelry — I wants it
I’m officially in love. And no, not with my husband (though I do love him too).
I am in love with these handmade lockets…and pocket watches…and earrings. The Enchanted Locket — that’s the name of this store — and OMG, I want everything in it. All of it.
Scratch all that — I neeeeed everything this craftswoman is selling (my precioussssssss). I’ve already asked for, like, 5 of her amazing wares for Christmas. Just look at these and tell me they aren’t (as the name implies) enchanting?
This one could be MY BOOK. Skulls? Steampunk? Spell-books? It’s The Spirit-Hunters!
And this one… ::sigh:: So dainty, so shiny, so unique.
And doesn’t this one make you want to start carrying a pocket watch?
“Excuse me, can you tell me the time?”
“Why, yes I can — from the OWL IN MY POCKET!”
Okay, enough gushing. I just had to share my latest obsession. (To female friends and family: you know what you’re getting for Christmas.)
What do you guys want for Christmas? Any jewelry that you’re particularly fond of? And what do you think of these enchanting items?
P.S. Be sure to check out my post on Let the Words Flow (about dealing with agent requests for your manuscript).

I LOVE all the open watch works. Shiny… It’s kinda amazing that I found a watch I like. It’s been impossible for me! Now all I need is to find an extra hundred dollas. 🙁

Um, I right there with you. Just gots to find the dolla-dolla-bills, and then I can float off in silvery, steampunk cloud of delight.
Or something like that…

Ohhhhh my God, Etsy is my new best friend. Srsly. I’m loving the octopus book necklace! LOL, what a random combination!
Steampunk goggles. Ramona Flowers brought them back with a vengeance. I’ve even given a pair to the love interest of my post-apocalyptic YA, because I think they’re so stunning.
When The Spirithunters gets published (WHEN), you have to celebrate by buying all the steampunky jewelery you can get your hands on!! 😀

Yes, Etsy is FABULOUS. I spend way to many hours procrastinating on there.
And YAY for steampunk goggles! There are definitely some in The Spirit-Hunters!

OH! My sister and I found that shop a while back and made lists of everything we wanted and promptly forgot about it! Must refresh her memory. LOVE this stuff!
November 10, 2010 @ 2:05 pm
Well, I’m glad I was able to jog your memory. 🙂

Damnnnnnn. I so want that pocket watch.
November 10, 2010 @ 5:22 pm
I know, RIGHT!? How cool is it to have an owl in your pocket that tells time?
November 10, 2010 @ 6:06 pm
the owl is uh-dorable!
November 10, 2010 @ 6:56 pm
Very pretty stuff. I especially love the book!
I think we should all try and bring pocket watches back =]
November 10, 2010 @ 7:00 pm
Katharine: “uh-dorable” sums it up perfectly!
David: FOR REAL! Pocket watches are wicked cool. Especially ones with owls on them. 😉

I somehow missed the owl before. I MUST HAVE THAT! (Sorry for yelling, but it’s that awesome).
November 10, 2010 @ 9:29 pm
I wants it all! Now now now now.
November 11, 2010 @ 2:12 am
yes, I want them all.
Have you ever checked out Epbot, the “other” blog by the writer of the famous Cakewrecks blog? She is way into steampunk.

I think I’ve seen that little bird somewhere….seems to pop up everywhere, huh?
November 11, 2010 @ 6:51 am
Meredith: I OWE YOU! So you can yell all you want since you introduced me to it.
Melissa: Now now now is exactly when I want it to. Darn travel distances…
Zahara: I have NOT checked that out, but you can rest assured I will. Stat!
Jennifer: I hope you’re not sick of that bird ‘cos you might get one for Christmas. I’m just sayin’, is all. 😉

OH. I am absolutely in love with these. I just discovered etsy a few weeks ago, and really love all the stores on there. This one is so full of gorgeous lockets.

I know, Emy — aren’t they fantastic?? Etsy is très fab, as is the Enchanted Locket. 🙂
