Ugh. Just because there are gears in something doesn't make it Steampunk.

Sarah Alford

Thats true . But Lockets and cameo shaped pendants are very common in Victorian jewelry . I'm often asked for tutorials and I wanted to make one that would be easy and not the stuff you see all over etsy.

Angie

You make some of the loveliest and unique steampunk jewelry. Thank you for sharing how you do it!

Sarah Alford

Thank you so much ! I hope people have fun with the tutorials I've posted .

Dea

Awesome!
thanks soooo much! i was wondering what to do with my very very small gears, now i have something to use them for...but now i must get some resin!
thanks so much for sharing!

Higgy

Thanks a lot :] this is the only tutorial I've found and I'm glad you made it simple because I'm just starting out.

Very nice work, the looks amazing. I like jewelery pieces made by home. I will try to do it by myself. Thanks for the post.

A well explained tutorial, with great possibilities, I really like the random pigment idea.

Patricia

Thank you so much for the tutorial! I was wondering how that kind of stuff was done. You were also very kind to the first comment posted. The rest of us appreciate the time, effort and consideration that you have shown. I LIKE gears.

Hi! I am way late in commenting here, ha... but I had a question for you: at the end there, after you fill in all the recessed spaces around the gears with resin, do you then fill the cabochon mold with resin and once that is dry just glue the cabochon on top of the gears?

great tutorial, thanks!!

Sarah

Thanks everyone.

Sarita,I didn't use a cabochon mold . The resin itself is so thick that when you pour it over the gears it will naturally form a dome .If the dome isn't as high as i want i let the resin cure and then the next day add more on top.

Viola Rose

Found this by accident, thank you very much for sharing, appreciate it.

I am a librarian in Michigan and I just wanted to let you know I used this tutorial as part of a steampunk jewelry making program I offered in late March. It was very popular and the pieces turned out great! It was fun to turn on a whole new group of teens to steampunk. Thanks so much!

Sandra

I've always wanted to play with resin but it seems so hard to find. I've a few fragile projects that I think would work best embeded. Do you know the name of the syringe stuff you mentioned was available at hardware stores? (Oh, and thanks for the tip about mineral eyeshadow for pigment, I've some I binged on and never used for it's intended purpose!)

Sarah

in the hardware store you'll find adhesive resin . i'd suggest getting the stuff that says 30 minute cure time. That way you'll have time to get the air bubbles out. You do that by passing a lit match just over the surface . It's usually in the glue section of the hardware store .

HOW DO I FOLLOW YOU

Sarah

I have no idea and I'm sorry . I'll get to work on that!
