Steampunk meets Cyberpunk by clockwork-zero Steampunk meets Cyberpunk by clockwork-zero
Capturing the Vacuum - cyberpunk meets steampunk jewelry in a vacuum tube pendent. I realized its been a while since I've uploaded any of my cyberpunk/steampunk vacuum tube necklaces. I haven't made any for a while and now finally have some up on my etsy site.

There is something really amazing about these wonderful vacuum tubes. Originally they would have been used in electronics - televisions, radios etc. Once they were even used to make computers. Now, this stunning tube has been repurposed into an unusual piece of jewelry!

The vacuum tube is about 6cm long - about 2.4inches by over 2cm wide - about .8 of an inch. It really looks fantastic reflecting the colours around it.

The detail inside these tubes are truly incredible - shiny silver, delicate filaments and wonderful electrodes sealed under glass inside a vacuum. This one has some lovely of colour where the copper goes through the glass.

I designed a "hardware" chain - using various bits of standard, modern hardware and some great darker link beads. I chose some very dark hardware (have a look at the photo of the chain) - so that the round dark bits echo the round hole in the detail.

finally posted them to etsy,

That is amazing. Along with the rest of your steampunk-cyberpunk jewellery. It's got this sort of unique flair and intricity you don't see in most jewellery. Definitely a necklace I'd actually wear. :D
