|Corrine's Steampunk Gear Look
Not sure where I am going with this steampunk gear necklace or pin. Maybe both if I use the pinback
& bail. But it was fun. I had picked up the washer combo that had been soldered together somewhere along the
line- all rusty and cool. So I used 2 of the brass gears- one as a base over the larger washer hole and a smaller one
on tope of that - but kind of hard to see because the brad in the center that says "etc" covers most of it. I had a
cool filigree piece I had been hoarding for quite some time. I felt the washers needed something plus it would make
it easier to turn into a necklace or pin, so I adhered it to the filigree pieces using Claudine Hellmuth Matte Medium.
I also add a little bit of gold leaf to the washers.
Brass stempunk gears are a fun way to add a unique touch to your jewelry or art projects.

|Corrine's Gear & Square Frame Mini book
Did you know you could make a cute little mini book using the square frame above? Neither did I.
I was making some other kinds of books-multiple signatures- and actually was looking through a jewelry magazine and saw a
pic of something that gave me the idea for this- you just never know where your inspiration will come from. I put some
Grpahics 45 paper in the frame that had a gear design, added some of our cool brass gears and set them in with Ranger Matte
Accents. It has some beads on the side and ties in the front. I left the little frame rings on- for now- I may
add something to them too. Or I may just snip them off- time will tell. You could actually use them to incorporate
this into a necklace.
Brass charms are amazingly versatile embellishments!
