Auroratique's Steampunk Jewelry!
Mom's Newest Jewelry! 9
My Mom Joan has always enjoyed designing jewelry. About 3 years ago after a girls day out at my friend Terri's house, a group of us were hosted to a day of jewelry making and fun, with renewed interest, my Mother started re-creating her jewelry again in what I call hyper speed, prior to, she'd create a piece every so often, now its 3 to 5 times a day.

Her collection has grown to over 1,000 pieces, many she has sold at Art Events/Shows, Trunk Shows, Private Sales, at Piddlestixs and online. Our store: Piddlestixs located in Historic Lafayette, NJ has proven to be her star base, over the past 6 months, we have seen a variety of industry professionals walk through our doors from the city (NYC) and have purchased her wares. She has been published and has taught workshops over the past year, which has lead her on a new theme, Steampunk which she mixes with Victorian and Gothic tones.

Since last January, my Mother has been building her Steampunk line of wares from necklaces o earrings, bracelets and now rings, cuffs and hair bands. The obsession with keys, time pieces and vintage apothecary has fueled her passion. Each steampunk piece can sometime take days to complete due to the complexity or design, the parts and the fusing of the metals.Mom's Newest Jewelry! 6Mom's Newest Jewelry!
Currently she is working on incorporating some more bling, mythology and folklore themes into her new pieces. All the components which make up her jewelry are a mix of antique, vintage, modern or handmade.

Here is a sampling of my Mother's Steampunk Line. You can find her under: Auroratique on Etsy and throughout the web. If you are in town come visit her and her works at Piddlestixs!

Hi Lisa -

Now I know where you get your talent from - LOL! Your mom's work is breathtaking! I love her style. You can tell she puts lots of love and herself into those gorgeous designs. BEAUTIFUL! I bet half the fun for her (I know it is for me) is hunting down the various elements to make the perfect piece?

Hi Lisa,
I was just wondering where to send the Valentine postcards for your swap. (Sorry, I sometimes have trouble loading your site, so I am getting back to you late...)If you can email me the info, that would be great, auntiecake4@gmail.com. And I noticed there weren't as many people interested in the postcard swap as your other swaps, so that is fine also, just let me know either way! Have a great day,
Thanks,
Kate
