Review by bruceandceals
An inspiring collection of steampunk style jewellery designs which includes some interesting background material on steampunk fashion, art, and influences. I would prefer that the "how to assemble" sections had more photographs though as I am not fond of diagrams with mainly text instructions. However the diagrams themselves are fairly clear. And to be fair I have not attempted to make any of the designs myself yet and most of the projects don't look too difficult to have a go at.The creativity and variety of approaches to steampunk style jewellery showcased here provide a lot of ideas to expand on. Every time I flick through this book I get ideas that could apply beyond jewellery pieces to altered art and mixed media.Well worth a look.

For creative purposes it is a nice book to look through to get ideas about this particular style. Other than the aesthetic value of this book I would advise to browse through it at a bookstore or craft store and save your money for supplies or a more technical jewelry-crafting book.
