Steampunk is industrial and mechanical with function sometimes like a adorned compass or pocket watch though frequently with a beautiful, intricate and romantic Victorian tilt of the top hat.

The materials range from wood, glass to metals; brass, tin, copper, gold to name a few. The whole array of colors is referenced but most commonly brown tends to dominate, as do other colors such as yellows, reds, and oranges. You’re less likely to see cool colors such as blue and green they are more scarce but exquisite. 
It has many subcultures which lead to lot`s of different motifs to represent the origins of some of it`s art and literature. These include the octupus - referencing 1000 leagues under the sea, cogs and gears representing industrialization such as the steam locomotive, the pocket watch referencing the story of the time machine by H.G Wells. 
The jewelry finds inspiration from these subcultures so make something with the basics and choose which ever motif you adore and pay homage to it through your jewelry or just go with your heart. wear anything you find is beautiful, I know you will find something. Don`t not forget it is whatever you want it to be, mix it all up like a deck of cards.
