Yet another set of projects I wrote for Interweave's Creative Jewelry magazine! Clearly, the editors were in favor of some of my industrial pieces for this issue. These started to slip out of the realm of the steampunk style I have been working in and move right into a mechanical and industrial inspiration. I guess I make that distinction when the Victorian and ornamented elements leave and it is all gears and nuts and bolts, which is how these pieces come across to me. That's the direction I seem to be continuing to head.
