I found this article very fun and wanted to share it with all of you.  I love the fashion here it is very inspriational.  
Rule One:  Steampunk fashion is a real-world reproduction of the clothing that is or could be found in steampunk literature. It’s that simple.
Rule Two: When in doubt, dress Victorian and then add.
Rule Three: Steampunk fashion is about creating an outfit that delights the senses, entertains the wearer, and engages the viewer.
Rule Four: There is no “steampunk color.” Some people have claimed that steampunk is only brown, or only black, or only white, or only light, or only dark. They are wrong. Virtually any color can be steampunk
Rule Five: You are allowed to like other genres.
Rule Six: Have fun and be yourself.
This is the short but sweet version of the rules. 
The full article can be found here The 6 rules of Steampunk Fashion

I have been having fun working with some old watch parts tins I have.  I have buckets full and have been trying to figure out how to use them.   These tins have been punched, pounded, drilled, painted and now they look like this.  I am having a blast.  I will be adding more as I make them.  I love the added elements of the watch parts and the fact you can see through them.  Next I will be adding the tins to other steampunk pieces I am making.   More to come......

I put together some more charms.  I just love doing this.  I find the pairing up of objects very soothing.  What type of things do you like to use in charms?

Another new Steampunk found object piece.  I am loving working with these tiny tins.  It is amazing the things you see when you really start looking.  They do take a long time to create but the end result is worth it.
