Sentimental and nostalgic, Loveswain originals are designed to bring out the beauty in every reclaimed piece of clockwork. All vintage movements used are unrepairable and nonfuctioning making every piece one of a kind and truly repurposed.
Why Steampunk? Growing up I had a love and appreciation of clockwork because my grandfather was an avid pocket watch collector and his brother (my great uncle) was a watch maker. Pocket watches always made me feel close to my gramps and I was intrigued by how beautiful and special each piece was. When my gramps passed away in 2008 - I inherited a collection of broken watches and wanted to put them to good use. I started making jewelry just for myself and my friends at first. I participated in many local craft shows and launched my Etsy shop in March of 2009. Since then I have immigrated to Canada and brought my little Etsy business with me.
For me, choosing to work with a medium that I am deeply attached to and that reminds me of someone very dear to me, has made my work extremely rewarding and personal.
My designs incorporate vintage watch movements and clockwork, brass, antiqued silver, victorian and elizabethean stampings and castings, turn of the century decorative hardware and special charms & adornments.
