What Is It:
Here we are, at the last category in our Jewelry theme - Steampunk. There is a lot of Steampunk jewelry out and about, but this week's featured listing really grabbed my attention.
Please meet Steelhip Design
It's easy to slap a gear on something and call it Steampunk. But there are a few artisans out there who go beyond that, and really capture the spirit and flavor of Steampunk. Such a one is Steelhip Design.
Just take a look at some of the unique and beautiful jewelry designs they offer.

They have some designs that are *really* different from other Steampunk pieces I've seen - and I love! Check out this wicked Skull pendant, for example.

The artist also does some larger pieces and sculptures.

These pieces are truly art - some you can wear, and some you just display. They are not inexpensive, but beautiful art rarely is. If you are looking for a trademark piece for your collection, or a special gift, you definitely need to take a look at Steelhip Design.
I'm totally digging that skull pendant (and I'm not even usually into skulls). Which piece is your favorite? Tell us in the comments!
