Steampunk Emporium: Creating Fantastical Jewelry, Devices and Oddments from Assorted Cogs, Gears and Curios Reviews
Part of Steampunk is making up stories about your character and your accessories. This is a good introduction to using stories about what the jewelry pieces are for and what they do. Each section has a cute story with a clockwork type fairy image. It uses basic jewelry techniques along with polymer clay and mixed media. An index of projects and stories completes the book, along with a listing of resources and Steampunk groups.
I love the jewelry and the plethora of easily achievable techniques that are taught in this book! The stories behind the jewelry are fascinating and fun... They also add to your imagination for your own creations. I also love this book for its openness about techniques... A cornerstone of the steampunk movement has been sharing such information with entire openness. I haven't met steampunk people who answer "how did you do that?" with "It's my secret.". With regards to this Jema 'Emilly Ladybird' Hewitt has done admirably. For example her Absinthe Fairy necklace gives clear directions for faux vitrail work, (like stained glass, but with enamel), and a method that makes it dead simple at home! (I was so pleased that it worked so well.)
I haven't tried to make anything yet but the instructions seem pretty clear and the stories about each piece makes the book entertaining.
I bought this book for myself and then got two more for associates. It is so much fun and the ideas are so adaptable! Thank you! Carma
VERY happy customer! Wonderful book that provoked lots of thot! LOVE this book! A+A+A+ Buy with confidence!
If you liked Steampunk before you knew what the word meant you should get this book....or if you like eclectic design you should get this book...or if you like books full of designs that will inspire any interest you have get this book. Lots of color prints. I find myself leafing through this book for inspiration again and again. This is the best steampunk primer I've seen.
Great colorful illustrated book on Steampunk styled items. Cute little fantasy stories in each set of items to dream on what the item is used for or where it came from. Very imaginative. I would not say it is for a "beginner" craftsperson, but for someone wanting a challenge or has lots of time on their hands it is fantastic. It was fascinating to read and look through like a gorgeous picture book!
Great steampunk book to read
