Mystic Pieces travels back in time with handcrafted jewelry. Themes of Steampunk, Neo Victorian, Industrial and a bit of Gothic to enhance your accouterments. All watch movements are vintage and eco friendly. Jewelry making found it’s way into my life about 14 years ago, after feeling a burning need to create again (have been an artist, since the age of 7). Eventually, I started selling my work to local boutiques in Phoenix, Az and then found Etsy. About 4 years ago, I wanted to make my living by creating full time. That opportunity and dream presented its self, about 2 1/2 years ago, when I was laid off from my advertising job. Since, taking the plunge into entrepreneurship and becoming a full time artist, I’m loving the different challenges. Three and a half years ago, as we all wonder, Steampunk found me and my fancy. I’ve always been fascinated by the Victorian Era; it’s romance, elegance, detail to workmanship and the simplicity of another time. The beauty too about the Steampunk genre, it has so many intertwining aspects. One can easily travel through time with touches of Gothic, Dieselpunk, Industrial, Futuristic and combinations of all the above. In my jewelry, I love the detail of the watch movements, like little pieces of artwork themselves. Yet, Steampunk gives me the creativity license to play with Victorian and Gothic touches.
