My steampunk jewellery and sculptures are influenced by the sub-genre of science fiction with its prominent elements of fictional technological inventions. I particularly like the evocative design and outlook of the neo-victorian style. The look and technology of the Victorian era sitting alongside impossible machinery or fantastic creatures is inspiring. I use vintage and antique clock and watch parts, movements and cogs for my creations, along with vintaj brass and sterling silver charms, chains and findings.

10% of the profits from this sale will be donated to The Bumblebee Conservation Trust via Work For Good

Sadly, our bumblebees are in decline because of changes in agricultural practices that have largely removed flowers from the landscape, leaving the bumblebees with little to feed upon. Most UK species have declined greatly in recent years, and two have become extinct in the UK since 1940.

Fortunately, there is much that can be done to benefit bumblebees. At the Bumblebee Conservation Trust, they work to raise awareness of the plight of the bumblebee amongst the general public. In particular, they provide information about bumblebees and work with farmers to help them farm in ways which are sympathetic to bees.

You can find more information on their website at http://bumblebeeconservation.org

This brooch is made from a spent sewing machine light bulb with brass fastening and tinted glass. The wings are made from acetate and the legs are wire wound. It fastens with a brass brooch pin.

Diameter of bulb - 2.5cm


Please be aware that this brooch is made from a recycled glass light bulb which could break easily if dropped on a hard surface or crushed - wing attachment may vary slightly

So very very clever. So many compliments! Can’t bear to think of putting it in a drawer— it sits on my dressing table and brings a great smile whenever I’m in the bedroom. I’m so glad I spotted this on Etsy! Thank you!
