Nature, Steampunk, and You: Custom Jewelry by Beverly Schnell
Custom jewelry with beautiful curves and shapes can enliven your appearance and lift your spirits. CustomMade artisan Beverly Schnell of Beverly Schnell Jewelry Design finds inspiration in the “sensual organic forms” found in nature and the curves of bodies. With her knowledge of numerous jewelry making and metal crafting techniques, she creates unique custom made jewelry with designs and textures that attract the eye as well as the hand.
Steampunk design and organic forms might seem an unlikely pairing. However, the mechanical fantasies of steampunk are very much “embodied” in the gears, springs, pistons, and other mechanisms within machines. While real world technological innovation has the working parts for machines getting smarter and smaller, the steampunk aesthetic turns machines inside out and celebrates mechanical construction, in effect, the bodies of machines. Beverly Schnell’s steampunk-inspired custom jewelry finds organic forms within the bodies of machines and mechanical aspects in the forms of nature.
Your body is the ultimate destination for your custom made jewelry. Beverly can create jewelry designed specifically for you and your outfits. Here are some of her pieces inspired by her own outfits.
