I can't tell you how grateful I am to have found your items here on Etsy. Our small ceremony this year (as well as our larger ceremony and reception next year) is Victorian Gothic/Steampunk themed so the hair picks completed my veil and outfit perfectly! There was very good communication, as well as timely shipping. Thank you again, so much, for making these hair picks. They helped me look fricken fantastic. (Or as my friends and I liked to say all day yesterday: "fab af"). **Highly** recommend. Just word of advice for those reading through these reviews, (as I believe is stated in each listing) be careful with your pieces <3. They do bend slightly with pressure so they must be taken care of with love and kindness.
When we say affordable, we mean it!
Hi there! Thanks for visiting! Antickquities was inspired by my friends and husband and our sudden love for Steampunk (it was VERY sudden, I tell you.) Of course we quickly came to realize that most Steampunk accessories and fashion can be quite expensive, so we ventured out into the city and went about looking for more affordable means to be fashionably gaslamp. I found that my day job (which is at a local craft mall) provided the greatest materials I could ever hope to find: brass clock hands. Beautiful brass clock hands that got absolutely no love just sitting behind the counter day in day out, lamenting their sad clockless existences. So I decided to buy them and show them that they did not need clocks to be loved. I have since turned them into charming accessories for ladies and gents, with the help of my friends and husband.
WHAT IS/ARE ANTICKQUITIES?
Antickquities are timeless embellishments for the modern era. Meaning we bring elegance to modern fashion by incorporating nostalgic implements, such as brass clock hands and hardware. It is a play on words to illustrate the use of clock parts and the true feeling of timelessness we hope to inspire with our pieces. We want to bring beautiful creative pieces to people without breaking the bank, which I wholly understand as a cosplayer. My pieces tend to be customizable as well. I don't really like the "one style suits all tastes" mentality. So, most of my pieces are customizable at your discretion to suit your tastes. Don't like the position of that one clock hand? Change it by loosening the screw! I encourage it!
We also carry Chainmaille by Mobius Flower and Semi-precious gemstone jewelry by Firewolf Crafting!

Frequently asked questions
Unfortunately, no other colors are available for clock hands. Many of the brass clock hands shown may appear silver or coppery in the pictures, but they ARE brass (unless otherwise noted in the listing), which is a golden tone. It is difficult to distinguish the golden tone in many of the pictures due to the highly reflective surface. All black hands are only black on one side and either white or silver on the other, and all "silver" hands are actually brushed aluminum which is a dull silvery color. I try to show the colors in every listing, but if you have any questions, feel free to ask!
Please remember that because they are so lightweight, my signature hair pick sets are not meant to hold up hair by themselves, and they should be handled gently. Most items are only held together using tension unless otherwise specified. This means they might also come slightly loose in transit. Don't worry, they're not broken! They are meant to be adjustable! Simply re-tighten them using a flat head screwdriver.
I do offer wholesale pricing on clock hand pieces! Generally, the order size must be 5 listings or more. Message me with the style and quantity desired and I will send you an estimate!
