2009 New Steampunk Jewelry design

This year CatherinetteRings decided to turn the steam on to a different level and create new original Steampunk Jewelry designs .

First i introduced changes into my steampunk ring designs - A new line : ARTIFACT .
ARTIFACT STEAMED are modified with clock parts and gears . These rings are one of a kind . Upon request i can remake similar one . Due to the complexity of the design i cant reproduce exactly the same ring twice so they will be all unique.

THE RINGS

ARTIFACT STEAMED with Clock Parts inlay into Mysterious Amber :
In this ring i drilled by hand tiny holes in amber and inlay minuscule clock gears.
To give you an idea of the dimension : the bead in the center is 8mm and the gears are between 1mm-1.5mm


ARTIFACT STEAMED with Crab fire Agate and clock part .
In this ring i also used Copper & Brass wire .


ARTIFACT STEAMED - Mysterious amber and clock parts .
I spent hours to drill by hand holes in the center loop to add the tiny knobby pieces.

ARTIFACT STEAMED with Clock gears .
On the left i used Tinned copper wire + Gun Metal and on the right Gun metal and Natural copper.


GEMS & JEWEL
Steampunk Rings

This is my luxury . I really like nicely cut stones and i have found the opportunity to include diamond cut stone into my Steampunk design .

Peridot is the birthstone for August
Weight :1.70 Carat
Size mm : 8x8x4

I also created some bracelet which can be combined with matching rings in my shop.

The RELIC design feature rare or unusual material .

Hi! I stop by your site everyday. I love your rings, a little pricey for a poor guy like me, but I would love to one of your rings on stage, something dark (not the color, the feeling) , masculine, and awe inspiring. Any recommendations? And not terribly expensive, you know how broke some musicians are,lol.
