My inspiration comes from Steampunk. Ok, so what is Steampunk? There are many definitions to define the look.
The Urban dictionary defines Steampunk as a subgenre of speculative fiction, usually set in an anachronistic Victorian or quasi-Victorian alternate history setting. It could be described by the slogan "What the past would look like if the future had happened sooner." It includes fiction with science fiction, fantasy or horror themes.
To me, Steampunk is Industrial Victorian Science Fiction that features steam driven machinery rather than advanced technology. Visual examples can be found in popular movies such as:
Wild Wild West
The Time Machine
Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow
As an artist, I appreciate the aesthetics of the Steampunk genre; the Victorian feel of an Age of Reason and Wonder, to incorporate the elements minus the costume (although I do LOVE the costumes)!! In other words, to create a line of art, jewelry and accessories, inspired by Steampunk, using clean lines, refined and sophisticated for everyday.
I handcraft every item and use only the best quality materials available to me. Most items require a multi-step process, so nothing is just whipped together in a day, except for some of the wire jewelry, each piece taking at least a couple of hours to make. I meticulously inspect each piece to ensure it meets my standards.
Always experimenting and creating, I am continuously looking for new ideas. So, stay tuned and let's see what I come up with next!
