Last weekend I popped into the Steampunk exhibition at Oxford's Museum of the History of Science. It was weird and wonderful look at art inspired by madcap Victorian science; think clockwork, brass, copper, glass and aged leather (or just go and see Sherlock Holmes).
One of the exhibitors was Daniel Proulx, who sells Steampunk jewellery on etsy under the username CatherinetteRings. And he's just one of thousands who're flogging Steampunk wares on the site. Above are a few of my favourites. It's definitely a marmite style, but as I'm currently writing this with a fob watch around my neck, I think I'm halfway there. I'm not sure I'm ready for a Mighty Mouse watch face necklace, but you have to admit it's fun!
