More new pieces- not listed yet.

I love making the little Steampunk hearts I make, quick little doses of steampunk clay. I enjoy how different I can make one from the other.

I make them when I am in the mood.

Do you do that, get on a roll with something and make them over and over?

Do you enjoy something so much that you forget how many you have made?

I adore these Steampunk Bobbies. I sell these heart Bobbie pins in the Hoarders Closet. Cute little finding, this one.

I love this one too, but I am having a hard time getting a good picture of it. It looks so much better in person. I may have to keep this one if I can not photograph it right ;-D

Kind of an Angel Straight Jacket Steampunk heart. Sounds like me!

A simple, but totally sweet one. I tend to get too busy sometimes for these small pieces and this one is not so! The metal hearts that I use to put the clay into are in my Etsy shop too! The metal bail on the top is even attached and come with the heart.

And this one busy and fun like I like them.

There is a Claddagh symbol with two hands, the heart, and the crown on it!

These are not listed in my Etsy shop yet, if you want one let me know!

“The Claddagh’s distinctive design features two hands clasping a heart, and usually surmounted by a crown. The elements of this symbol are often said to correspond to the qualities of love (the heart), friendship (the hands), and loyalty (the crown).


The way that a Claddagh ring is worn on the hand is usually intended to convey the wearer’s romantic availability, or lack thereof.

Traditionally, if the ring is on the right hand with the heart facing outward and away from the body, this indicates that the person wearing the ring is not in any serious relationship, and may in fact be single and looking for a relationship: “their heart is open.”

When worn on the right hand but with the heart facing inward toward the body, this indicates the person wearing the ring is in a relationship, or that “someone has captured their heart”.


A Claddagh worn on the left hand ring finger facing outward away from the body generally indicates that the wearer is engaged.

When the ring is on the left hand ring finger and facing inward toward the body, it generally means that the person wearing the ring is married.” [1]
