The Steampunk movement seemed like a natural progression for my jewelry collection. I’ve always been inspired by the beauty of nature and Victorian, Art Nouveau and Art Deco period jewelry. I have pulled from my extensive collection of antique and vintage watches that I hand selected and acquired over a 20 year period. Each one of a kind jewelry piece is handmade and an original design by me. My shop offers an eclectic compendium of artistic treasures made with the finest materials, quality craftsmanship and love. Steampunk Jewelry Designs by Artist Maria Sparks – — Necklaces, earrings, bracelets and rings made from recycled antique pocket watch and clock gears and other brass parts.
