Buttons going steampunk!

This buttons all seem to belong somehow together. I call this my steampunk series because of the colours and... more than everything else... because of my mold with gears and clockwork which I love to use! 

But also the colours... bronze, copper, brown and black... go together very well and create this certain steampunk flair for me. Yes, I like it. Hey, I was a little goth during my youth and still am deep inside my heart. There is still this kind of aesthetic which I love! A kind of dreamy, forlorn, dramatic and longing, which goes deep down. I also love the mixtures which are quite often used for fusion tribal (belly dance)... and it is just a little step from there to steampunk. Or maybe a step sideways?

Also some scripture and flowers... stamps and my beloved molds which are not only perfect for earrings but also for creating buttons out of polymer clay (fimo).

Last but not least: My favorite mold (you hate my use of the word favorite, nay? But hey, it is really one thing which makes so much fun for me: Creating and using molds!). I used poppy seed capsules for this!

  1. These are so creative. I love the steampunk look and I love buttons. Very nice!

  2. The poppy seed one is so gorgeous. Love them all! The very first one is my favorite, it looks like something prehistoric - I picture a whole line of them on a winter coat!

  3. Very nice! It's hard to pick a favourite, but I think I also like the poppy seed one best. Thanks so much for linking up at Etcetorize this week!

  4. Those are so steampunk. I adore buying new and recreating it in a vintage image - with things like your buttons. Too cool.

  5. Fabulous texture and imagery! I love your style.
    Thanks so much for linking up at I Gotta Create! <3 Christina

  6. These are awesome! My hubby started out as a printing press mechanic so all things mechanical appeal to me! Love the buttons!
