Catholic Steampunk Necklaces - Romanticism with a Twist





I have been working on some new Catholic resin jewelry creations and wanted to make them truly unique from the normal genre of what I create.  I wanted something that displayed romanticism with a touch of steampunk.  In order to do this,  I incorporated elements as gears, heavy chain links, crystals and rhinestones to my latest creations.  Here they are:


Virgin Mary necklace - features bronze, antiqued silver and a touch of copper (detail view.)

St. Therese of Lisieux necklace with matching earrings.  (The roses are red velvet and perfectly complement the colors in the image.)

All of these necklaces have been posted to Etsy and EBay.  Once the item sells on one site, it is removed from the other.  I do this for my customers who don't have access to both sites.

I originally intended to complete my Italy series here in blogland, but opted to go forward and share my latest designs, instead.  I have lots of craft-related items and projects I want to share, and now that I am a full-time college student, my time to blog is quite limited.  :(  Until next time - happy crafting!
