LESLIE ROGALSKI
Steampnk style has ond its way into seed bead artistLeslie Rogalski’s work, as well, notably within herherringbone-stitched beadwork c designed with Japa-nese cylinder beads, watch parts, metal “gizmos” and one o her avorite gadgets, the O-ring. “I have alwaysbeen interested in the Steampnk genre o ilm and  literatre, rom H.G. Wells to Sherlock Holmes. Now,Steampnk is in the ashion world with elements rom trn-o-the-centry military and indstrial innova- tion,” says Rogalski.“I like an rban tribal look. As manactrersstarted coming ot with more and more interestingmaterials and chains, I responded and started in-corporating them into my seed bead work. As an artorm, there is a very eminine aspect to Steampnk, as well. Even with the growing interest in Gothic and vam-piric ephemera, Steampnk is there in the shadows— no pn intended!”

JILL STEVENS
Honoring the indstrial and steam engine eras,designer Jill Stevens’ passion is to bring obsoleteobjects back to lie. “It’s an important distinc- tion that Steampnk jewelry is not necessarilabot ond objects,” notes Stevens.“Steampnk style ocses on creating analternate presentation o gadgetry rom a time in history when things were steam pow-ered. My jewelry is a simpler representation, withot heavy modiications. I create an icono each object, watch piece, or gear in its en- tirety and try to maintain the innate beaty o  that object.” A ormer social worker, Stevens credits herinterest in gadgets and technology to propel- ling her into jewelry making. “I’ve always beeninspired by indstrial and obsolete objects,inding something amiliar and nwanted, and  then reinterpreting it and bringing it back to lie,” adds Stevens, who is now ventring intoreprposing car parts as a jewelry medim.“Part o what I love is learning abot the his- tory o the pieces I se and the companies thatmade them. I now know more abot old cars than I did beore!”

THE STEAMPUNK TREND
By ANNIE OSBURN
RICKY WOLBROM
Steampunk-style jewelry has staked its claim as a viable genre thanks to ahandful of innovative designers, suchas Ricky Wolbrom. No stranger to thefiner things, Wolbrom grew up in New  York City’s diamond district and jokingly refers to her work as the “Tiffany’s of Steampunk.” Celebritiesand fashion industry trend-setters alike collect her mixed-mediacuffs (created in collaboration with textile artist Teresa Stanton).“Steampunk style is in my blood,” admits Wolbrom. “The gearingand mechanics of Steampunk jewelry remind us of a time when things were truly made by hand, like the fine timepieces I use that date to themid-1800s.” Stand-outs among Wolbrom’s eclectic and bold designsinclude an ornate dangle bracelet with hefty slices of antique watchparts set with rubies, and a Gothic black-leather wrist cuff adorned  with clock parts and printed matter — and a raven, for added measure.

SARAH MARTIN
For a unique take on Steampunk style, designerSarah Martin creates reversible designs encased in resin. Tiny gears, watch parts, and wire shapesare meticulously set in aluminum frames for anentirely different expression.“Encasing my pieces in resin creates a see- through window so the interior parts can interact with each other. My work fits the genre, but not the standard,” says Martin. “I like the hard indus- trial design of Steampunk, while incorporatingnatural, unexpected elements juxtaposed with themechanical gears, like the beauty of wood which Iuse in my cuff links.” While resin-encased Steampunk designs giveMartin a unique approach, she admits the pro-cess is time consuming. Hours spent achieving the perfect suspension of components within theresin make her designs truly one-of-a-kind laborsof love.
