Overview

From the author of Steampunk Fashion, a stunning collection of steampunk jewelry from top artists around the globe

No artform has been more influenced in recent years by steampunk than that of the jeweler. Initially just an arcane collection of clocks and gears, the art has developed into an astounding hotbed of craftsmanship and creativity, blurring the lines between man and nature, and achieving a handmade intricacy which never ceases to fascinate. In the process some of the most valuable and inventive objects of the steampunk movement have been created. In the vanguard were the aficionados of steampunk who needed to accessorize their costumes. More recently, serious silversmiths, goldsmiths, and metal workers, as well as sculptors in miniature, have entered the fray. The best from around the world are featured here, with astonishing photography and insights from each artist. This volume, in the same format as Steampunk Fashion, will appeal to professional and amateur jewelers alike (whether in the movement or not), to anyone working with steampunk, but also to all steampunk enthusiasts, who seem to have an insatiable appetite for the latest aesthetic manifestations of this remarkable genre.
