Steampunk is a literary and arts movement based mostly on the works of Jules Verne and H.G. Wells. It assumes that the internal combustion engine was never invented and everything operates on steam power. There is a vibrant and rapidly growing community of writers and artists that are embracing the tenets of steampunk (like cyberpunk of the 1990s) and creating "Vernesque" neo-Victorian fiction and art that melds the mechanical with the more traditional aspects of art. In my jewelry, I combine found mechanical objects like mantle clock gears with more traditional jewelry items such as beads and flowers.
