Lady Aurora, and Choose Your Lady - Beautiful Steampunk Chokers!

We've got two for you today: The beautiful Lady Aurora, and the chance to choose a sister-piece in any color and style you want, based loosely on previous pieces!!

Lady Aurora
$40 with Earrings

The sixth in a line of chokers vaguely inspired by the show Deadwood/the wild west victorian style, this piece features a more ornate cameo setting, and an entirely different color scheme then the previous pieces.

Taking a cue from "Bella Union", "The Gem", and the other pieces in this line, this piece features a beautiful vintage watch movement, set into a cameo bezel in a gorgeous antiqued bronze finish and ringed by a delicate chain to finish the edges, as the centerpiece for this beautiful choker. From large link bronze toned chain hangs the cameo pendant, and several lengths of chain accented by two bicone beads in a gorgeous blood red. Working with the theme of an Aurora Borealis finish from the tiny rhinestones set into the the flowers on the cameo setting, we used clear AB finished glass beads, and tiny black AB stones, paired with faceted black glass beads in several sizes, and faceted black glass tear drops. A truly gorgeous necklace!

This is a 'one size fits all' choker, with a lobster clasp which can be fastened to any of the links to make this as long or short as needed.

Comes with matching earrings, which feature tiny bronze keys and black and clear AB crystals.

Full Circle -

The return of House of Decay comes not a moment too soon, with this gorgeous, fully re-purposed Pocket Watch pendant!

I took a beautiful antiqued watch case, in a gorgeous sort of gunmetal/antique bronze finish, gutted it, added an old, battered watch face and a vintage cog as a background, ringed it in sparkly vintage rhinestones, and set a beautiful, shiny-bright watch movement on top, delicately framed in a pale gold braided chain, and adorned with a faceted orange jewel with an Aurora Borealis finish.

As if that wasn't all good enough, I added two chains, joined together about 3/4 of the way towards the closure. A small-link chain in a dark antique bronze finish, accented with tiny beads in a variety of colors and finishes. The second chain features rounded beads connected by antique bronze o-rings, connecting to the pendant itself by an amber colored diamond shaped faceted bead.

This is a gorgeous pendant, that hangs about to the middle of your chest. I can adjust the length if needed, but the lobster clasp actually makes this necklace adjustable on it's own, as well.

Steampunk, Neo-victorian, Dorian's Parlor

Dorian's Parlor - July 20th 2013


Full Steam Ahead, Dorian’s Parlor Returns for Third Anniversary

Philadelphia, PA, July 20, 2013. Once again Storykeeper Events, in association with Circuit Six, is proud to present Dorian’s Parlor, Philadelphia’s premier Steampunk showcase for live music and dance performances, inspired DJs, fashion shows unveiling wearable art from neo-vintage designers, vendors, and craftspeople. After a six month holiday, Dorian’s Parlor returns to celebrate its third birthday by hosting the Steamstock Tour, featuring the musical acts This Way to the Egress, Frenchy and the Punk, The Cog is Dead, and Psyche Corporation. The Doubletree Hotel’s Ormandy Ballroom, located at 237 Broad Street, Philadelphia, PA 19107, grants the event’s two hundred or more patrons plenty of room to dance, mingle, and enjoy the show.

Since its debut in June 2010, Dorian’s Parlor has continued to extend a friendly welcome to casually clothed spectators and Steampunk-seekers alike. Gil Cnaan, the clockwork heart giving the event life, wants prospective attendees to know that everyone is welcome to “step into the Parlor”, he emphasizes that Dorian’s Parlor has a liberal dress code. The event spans wardrobe choices from club night to black tie- and even then, such styles do not reflect the full range of freedom and creativity frequently exhibited in Parlor-goer’s attire.

The reviews of Dorian’s Parlor harmonize in a chorus that exalts the event as a gathering of unique individuals of all varieties, and most of all, as being a friendly party where everyone is nice, even when they’re being naughty. Tara Murtha of Philadelphia Weekly wrote “the theme of the party is theatrical anachronism” and described Dorian’s Parlor as “a party for the steampunk set and the many subgenres of friendly freaks and geeks.” Dorian’s Parlor has flamboyantly caught the attention of at least two Geekadelphia writers, including Kelly Rowles who named Dorian’s Parlor “The Ultimate Geeky Getaway” and has praised the organizers for doing “an excellent job creating a Victorian atmosphere while giving patrons some modern entertainment.” While the theme is Victorian, there is no shy, mysterious fan fluttering to interpret. Jo Pincushion recognized Dorian’s forthright nature and proclaimed it “A wonderful event for anyone who is looking to party with the darker side of life … and everyone is accepting and friendly.” Consistent with all accounts of amiable disposition, the event website, endorses the event as a “haven for artists, Bohemians, socialites, and neo-vintage lovers of all stripes and inclinations.”

Fashion collection

Hello all!
I am in graduating year of a three year fashion design and production course in Sydney. Steampunk fashion has been a passion of mine for some time and this, my final collection for college and my debut collection into industry, will be loosely inspired by elements of Steampunk.
I mean to bring this wonderful niche world into an everyday winter women's wear collection and the opinions of this community would mean a lot to me.

Below is a link to a very short 6 question survey and I ask if you wouldn't mind taking a few moments to express your views and complete it. Target market research will allow me to determine if this collection is commercially viable.
Thankyou for your time :)
