The Charming Allure of Steampunk Jewelry
I think one of the most unique Etsy jewelry artists I have come across is thesteampunktrunk.etsy.com
You can really see the vision and love labored on each piece, eclectic and elegant Victorian jewelry- an ode to the era of gaslight and mechanical turbines.
Of course, a popular concern of any steampunk enthusiast would be the amount of radium dust found in such old parts, right?
Well steampunktrunk assures us that she has tested all materials and finished pieces with her handy dandy Geiger Counter. Okay with that out of the way, you can clear yourself of any irrational fears on radiation poisoning and don a Marie Curie inspired steampunk cuff.
