Today's Feature "Catherinette Rings"

Catherinette Rings

Steampunk Jewelry inspired by Victorian Science Fiction

I worked for several years in customer service in a travel agency and finance until 2008.

‘In April of 2008 I started to make rings just for fun ... I spent several hours every day perfecting and developing my own technique to Create an original design. I quickly started to make very retro-futurist model of rings. At that time I decided to embark on this adventure, quit my job and try to live on my jewelry full-time. One day a friend told me what I was doing was Steampunk. I researched the subject and fell in love with this culture. I always liked Steampunk but I didn't know there was a name for it.’
