Spokane, WA, July 17, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Steampunk jewelry components pick up full steam at Rings & Things. The increasingly popular retro-futuristic feel of steampunk is reflected in the jewelry parts supplier’s new gears, sprockets, watch parts and more:
* Fun industrial design elements come in the form of genuine old and new watch parts. These hands, faces, cogs and washers are bulk-bagged or available in a colorful aluminum tin with glass lid for attractive storage in the workshop.
* Separate solid copper and brass gear and sprocket design blanks are durable and reorderable, plus easy to stamp, rivet and antique using standard jewelry-making tools and supplies.
* Sprocket gears, ornate plates and adornments, from the hit Tim Holtz(R) idea-ology(TM) brand, masterfully incorporate a fanciful Victorian element into your designs.
These lustrous new metal items work together in jewelry designs like a well-oiled machine. Rings & Things’ well-rounded line of EuroTool(R) metal hole punches further make mixed-metal and cold-connection assemblages an easy human-powered handicraft.
R&T reinforces these offerings with a copious inventory of other supplies for embedding elements in resin jewelry and for professional-looking riveting. Also offered: free how-to's and a searchable online Design Gallery.
Makers of jewelry who want to explore steampunk more fully can get Rings & Things’ beads and findings catalog, plus the latest supplement, sent to them for $5 US. (Free with orders.)
