Steampunk Style Jewelry Review

Steampunk Style Jewelry Review
Jean Campbell does an outstanding job of presenting and describing what the steampunk style is all about. Quoting her definition- “Generally, Steampunk is a fashion, design and popular-culture phenomenon that combines romance and technology. Among its many influences are futurism, time travel, and the Victorian Age.”

Although Steampunk has been around for over 20 years many people have never heard this term. Jean does an incredible job of presenting jewelry designs and step by step instructions including the materials list for each project. Not only do we get the instructions on how to make these fascinating pieces, we also are introduced to the whole genre of Steampunk. Included throughout the book are sidebars on Steampunk in general- such as books, movies, fashion, animations, bands, and sculpture all depicting the Steampunk style.

I’ve always been a fan of sci-fi and the Victorian Age so I found this to be a perfect fit. Well written, fabulous pictures and detailed instructions make the book a real winner. Let your imagination run wild using this book as a guide to the world of Steampunk. Your collection of jewelry has never looked like this before!
