Stepping Into Another World...

That's how it feels as we near the weekend! I have a full weekend planned including celebrating a friend's birthday but I wanted to show all of you my newest creation before I head out!

Title: What a Steamship Mechanic Wears to the Ball
Ingredients: hand-finished brass and brass filigree, amber, tiger eye, glass, vinyl, thread.

I hand-drilled and distressed the wing as well as hand-sewing the brass filigree that finishes the ends of this vintage-leather-look vinyl.
I envisioned this wing dripping with jewels! and jewels that had their own inner glow!...but sparingly because less is more and this is a creation of both elegance and substance.

So, If you're a steamship mechanic and, for some inexplicable reason, you've actually been included in the invitation to the Ball along with the rest of the crew, what do you wear? Not many opportunities to wear fancy-dancy things come your way...Here is your answer!
An elegant solution that will both impress and not overwhelm. Jewels that have their own inner glow, fabulous, rich and dark colors, so as not to show any stray bits of grease that missed the quick scrubbing.

This ends this leg of our tour of a steamy, turn-of-the-century, steampunk world.
See you on Monday!
