The base starts with a silver plated brass collar measuring 15 inches in length (see below for exact sizing) and 4 inches (10cm) at deepest part of the V. To create the ‘piece I have texture enamelled the background to give a ‘molten’ metal effect. I began with a metal fish with an articulated tail and layered cogs. I wire wrapped a ‘light bulb’ component, which is stamped with the word believe, and created the ‘Mechanical Thinking fish’. I love the look of this creation and think that the silver colour way gives a different take on the usual steampunk colours. This is a ‘one off’ statement piece.
Background: I love Steampunk the very idea of Fantasy, Victoriana and Sci-Fi are a tempting combination to a jewellery designer like me who loves Over the Top embellishments. I have been working on several Steampunk pieces recently which I have thoroughly enjoyed making. I love to change from one medium to another and come back refreshed to each.
Length 15 inches (38 cm) the style of this collar means that the collar will fit a wide range of neck sizes W38mm x 0.60mm see pictures to see open style of collar at the back.
