My name is Max Dawson and I call my creations, "Steampunk Inspired Jewelry." Almost all of my pieces have small gears or clockwork incorporated in a Victorian style setting or bezel; reflecting the colors and style of the age such as antique copper, bronze and silver. From the bracelets with gears to the earrings made of watch hands, everything is used. Incorporated in some of the jewelry are also Victorian style images and designs such as old world maps, animal designs and ships. I enjoy every minute creating and placing the smallest gears. Patience and a good pair of tweezers, wins every time.
