Are you looking to add a touch of Steampunk to your winter holidays? These whimsical confections of ornate gears bring the spirit of Victorian ingenuity to your holiday decorations. Christmas wouldn't be what it is today without Queen Victoria and Charles Dickens, so Christmas and Steampunk go together like Halloween and Gothic!

These large, three-dimensional ornaments feature layered gears and snowflake-gears in mixed metallic colors and/or holiday colors. Most people assume they're made of wood or even metal until I show them the sides. So you get all the shine of metal without the weight!

The main gear is 4" in diameter, with a 3" gear and assorted combinations of 2" and smaller gears. The ornaments, depending on gear layout, are approximately hand-sized.

No two ornaments are alike, with different combinations of pieces and colors. Gear designs are based on actual gears or design elements used in vintage gears, cogs, sprockets, or escapements. Gears are laser-cut from clean corrugated cardboard shipping boxes and painted in metallic hues or seasonal colors.

Warm metallics: Brass, antique brass, copper, antique copper, industrial copper*
