I started making jewellery as a way to unwind after designing and hand coding websites all day. The jewellery eventually won and after years of making and selling a variety of styles I found steampunk. I love making jewellery and assemblage art pieces in this genre - and the lovely, supportive community is just a bonus. Steampunk has been very good to me with a few art prizes, being interviewed and featured in exhibitions and recently a piece is on the front page of the book, Steampunk Jewelry.
