Steampunk!!

I had a lovely lady ask for a couple of steampunk pieces for her husband and herself to go with their Halloween costumes. I had an idea to put together a funky key and some Angel wings mixed with different tones of chain. I could not be more pleased with the results! When I posted the pics on Facebook, the results were so well liked I just had to make more! The top picture is the first I made after the special orders :)
 This is the one I made for the special order. I also made the pocket watch in the next picture. I really hope they will send me pictures of the finished costumes! I am really excited to see them!!
 I was on a roll and made 5 total necklaces not including the order. I also made a pair of earrings that sold in less than two minutes! A new record I think! I might have to make more today...
 These awesome Tim Holtz wings are a favorite of mine. I have used them a few times before and will keep using them in the future. They are a real hit!
This one was much more difficult to assemble. Getting the wings to stay in place in this particular position was quite a challenge. The results are awesome! It looks amazing on!
 I actually made this one before the previous one, bigger key slightly smaller wings, but the little dangle makes it awesome! These are making smile. I love the feeling I got creating them!
 I had to use a few different styles of keys. These are just funky and have a great Vintage feel for a great price! Just don't ask me where I got them ;) my little secret...
These ornate wings are from Fallen Angel Brass, that I don't mind sharing! lol 
 The final necklace I made I used some Verdigris wings and a pewter colored key. I had a little trouble making the holes in the wings without chipping the finish, but I kind of like the rustic edge it added to it. If I didn't I would have discarded them. 

All these pieces are an array of mixed metals and funky steampunk pieces! I am hoping to make more, just need to order more supplies! I have listed all of these in my Jewelry shop on Etsy. I hope you will hop on over and add one to your cart ;)

Nothing better than skeleton keys in my opinion ;-) and I think I know where you got them. I never pass up a key! Enjoy the day, Miss Marie!
