About

Taking the Old and Making it New

Amber Ily's Steamcrafts was born out of the love from the Steampunk subculture and Victorian era. The shop is a mix of art such as shadowboxes and Steampunk/Victorian Jewelry.
I got into Steampunk about 15 years ago (although I've loved all things Victorian since I was little.) I absolutely love the style, I think there's something so beautiful and romantic about it. I've never been able to make my own cool clothing for Steampunk, so I took my Steampunk items and made them into jewelry.

I grew up in a household that loved anything old and used. My father would take me to yard sales and antique stores so as I got older I grew to love and appreciate the old and used items. I love being able to take used and old items and incorporate them into my jewelry and artwork. There is something special about having an upcycled piece. They mean more and have so much history compared to something new bought at a store.

All of my pieces are either handmade or upcycled from vintage pieces and given new life. Every piece is gift wrapped with a handwritten thank you note from me. A couple of the larger pieces such as the shadow boxes come with short stories to describe the world I imagined when creating the box.
