You can tell by my hair that I don’t like to be subtle in my appearance. This sometimes applies to the jewelry I wear as well. I like all kinds of jewelry, but occasionally, I want something that makes a statement. Fortunately, if you feel the same way, there are many artists out there that create such pieces. Prepare to be noticed!
What’s cooler than steampunk? Steampunk contraptions that actually function. Because really, what’s the point of all those gears if they don’t actually do anything? (Besides looking cool, that is.) The following gallery includes amazing inventions and art pieces that would make DaVinci and Atrus proud.
This wall sconce features a slowly rotating inner cylinder and displays a star field on the ceiling in a dark room. It looks amazing, and the super fun part? That round knob at the top is the on/off switch.
This cool necklace features a tiny “reactor,” composed of sterling silver, brass, titanium, and a glowing glass tube. The front of the pendant slides closed over the tube, where the light then shines through the three portholes in the front.
Functional steampunk doesn’t have to be expensive. This awesome puzzle heart was 3D printed in metallic plastic. It can be twisted apart and rotated back together. It also comes in a colorful cube variety.
