STEAMPUNK CLOCKWORK JEWELRY, RINGS & NECKLACES BY ROSE OF STONESTREET. JAPAN VINTAGE DESIGN, GOTH WINTER COAT.
A piece of jewelry can shift your mood. Or whisk you away to a different time and place. That’s how I felt when I wore these exquisite steampunk rings from The Rose of Stonestreet.
Designer Marilee fuses antique and modern aesthetics in her handmade jewelry. Her choice of materials is intriguing: clockwork pieces, natural Japanese sea glass, antique brass and bronze, vintage finds.
These multidimensional rings are lead and nickel free, and incorporate little metal gears. Bubbles in the gloss give the ring an uncanny, underwater quality.
I’m a fan of steampunk, and The Rose of Stonestreet is a fascinating take on the culture. New jewelry is frequently posted on their Etsy; they’re also on Facebook and Twitter. (Support indie designers; keep them in mind as you Christmas shop.)

Where in the World is La Carmina? Los Angeles for big, new TV projects. Then, I’m spending Christmas in Vancouver with Seba. After, we’re in Italy for the fashion blogger event. (And maybe Paris for New Years…)
What do you think about Steampunk designs and culture? Do you make an effort to support indie businesses? If so, how?
