A fun photo shoot led to some amazing new bargain costumes to be had!!!
I've finally decided to part with a couple of the beautiful items I made for "steampunk apothecary"! It's a wrench but I am sure they will go to wonderful new collectors who will treasure them :)

About

Creator of impossibly beautiful things

Jema trained at Nottingham Trent University in the United Kingdom. She has a BA (hons) in Theatrical Design and it was while creating gorgeous costumes and accessories for theatre and film that her love of vintage style started to get out of control!

Her designs incorporate vintage and found objects with polymer clay, filigree and fabric and her workshops encompass millinery and corsetry techniques as well as jewellery pieces. Her work is exhibited in museums and galleries across the country and she has a large international fan base among the Steampunk and altered art communities.

Miss Emilly Ladybird, Adventuress, is Jema’s steampunk alter ego. In the character of Emilly she travels the world searching out artefacts for her employers “Dickens and Rivett”.sh e is much in demand as a speaker and panellist at craft, sci-fi and steampunk conventions across the country, also demonstrating and leading workshops on alternative style.

Jema/Emilly has been featured in several steampunk history and lifestyle books, including “The Steampunk Bible “ (Abrams 2012) and “Steampunk an illustrated history” (voyageur 2012)

She regularly writes articles on steampunk and vintage style for “making Jewellery magazine”, “making” magazine and has presented projects on Bead TV and Craft EDU

Her costumes have formed the central focus of Steampunk exhibitions at at Kewbridge steam museum, Bradford Industrial museum and Foxlowe Arts centre
