Steampunk Inspirations

Unexpected Benefit of Minimalism: Steampunk Fashion Accessories

While going through some boxes I had put away (and I have not looked in those boxes in years!) I found two pieces of jewelry that my grandmother had given me during my teenage years. Back then I was a science fiction/fantasy fan and she thought I would like these two pieces she found in an antique store.

Hunter1Recently I have been trying to reduce the amount of clutter in my life.  I think this is a particularly hard task for a writer who also happens to love books!  My library will be the last area I will attempt to de-clutter, if I ever do go that far in this endeavor.

They are costume vintage pieces, but they are beautiful.  I wore them as a teenager and then, as my tastes changed, I packed them away.  Now I think they will add just the right Neo-Victorian touch to a steampunk outfit.

Let me know what you think!

Three Fates

  1. Beautiful pieces!
    Artemis is easy to identify with her bow and hound.
    The other cameo is the Three Graces rather than Three Fates. The Three Graces were Aglaia (Brightness), Euphrosyne (Joyfullness), and Thalia (Blossoms/Blooms), usually in a dance. The Three Fates were Clotho (spins life’s thread), Lachesis (measures life’s thread), and Atropos (cuts life’s thread); any depictions of them has them holding tools for their part in destiny.

  2. I’m not a jewellery connoisseur by any means but they strike me as very fine pieces and I do quite like their coloring. Do you know if they depict Artemis and the Three Fates? (those are my guesses)

    1. Yes–that is my belief as well. The piece with the Three Fates has even more brilliant coloring–I was having a hard time capturing it with my camera. It is etched in such a way that it catches the light and almost glows.

      Thanks for commenting!
