Steampunk is a subgenre of science fiction that incorporates technology and artistic design inspired by 19th century steam powered machinery. At Meyer Jewelry Studio, designs in this collection incorporate the parts and movements of old watches and combine them with 925 silver and both 10K and 14K yellow gold, also with precious and semiprecious stones. Jim Meyer refers to the collection as “Ultimate Steampunk” because he uses precious metals and stones that are prong & bezel set. All metals and parts are soldered and/or laser welded in place, not glued. We hope you enjoy our collection as much as Jim enjoys making them.
