Welcome to the Workshop!
Opening in the fall of 2009, Highwind Steamworks creates all manner of jewelry, accessories, leather and soft goods. Using only quality parts and upcycled vintage or antique materials, my focus is on making items that are both aesthetically and economically pleasing. Starting out as a steampunk first and a maker second has given me a focus on making high quality items for all price ranges.
Jewelry and accessories in the shop are made with the finest materials, only real Swarovksi, semi-precious and precious stones, as well as vintage parts. Everything is made to stand up to everyday wear as well as costuming events. Leather goods are solidly constructed and will last the test of time, weather and hard use. I also do custom work, so if you have an idea for an item you would like, please feel free to discuss it with me.
Highwind Steamworks is owned and operated by Jeff Platt, and is based in the Chicago suburbs. Please find us on Facebook (Highwind Steamworks), Twitter (@hiwndstmwrx) and our online shop on Etsy (highwindsteamworx.etsy.com).
