Intricate Cyborg Bones - Cyberpunk meets Steampunk jewelry

- by ClockworkZero

This week's theme: It's a Matter of Time

Steampunk is not easily defined. It's a social movement. It's a burgeoning sub-culture that encompasses art, music, fiction, fashion, lifestyle, creation, and imagination with an aesthetic that is rooted in the 19th century's technologies, sciences, and possibilities. Steampunk is not a re-creation of the past; it is history altered. It speculates on our present and its inventions, but created with the technologies and craftsmanship from the age of steam. It looks at the history drawn through a lens of modern sensibilities. It blends time, and it creates its own. Steampunk is the past, the present, the future, and a place in time that exists outside of all three.


Art: Intricate Cyborg Bones - Cyberpunk meets Steampunk jewelry by Artist ClockworkZero
Intricate Cyborg Bones - Cyberpunk meets Steampunk jewelry - is a limited edition jawbone necklace. The jawbone is from a Mink, and is quite old. I've been fortunate to obtain a few of these - but even more rare is the lovely engraved Elgin pocketwatch piece. In this necklace I hope to share my love of science fiction, horror and steampunk in one necklace. I always loved the idea of cyborgs - part human and part machine... so why not cyborg animals too? Half this piece is a jawbone and the other half is part of a brass Elgin pocketwatch. You can see the engraving in the macro photo I provided - and as well have a look at the beautiful damskeening that is on it (that is the patterning that is in the metal). As you can see the one side is more decorated and it is numbered as well. This little jawbone comes from a Mink. Its not very big jaw as you can well imagine - this piece from brass metal tip to the bottom of the jaw is only about 4.3 cm (1.7inches) long. Currently it is available for sale.
