Since discovering Steampunk style design, I've been quietly trying to figure out how to make it "Grizzly" style. Some of my pieces are the usual vintage Bakelite buttons and watch parts, but I'm trying to incorporate more organic materials to give it a tribal feel.
The "Time Squared" piece featured above, was created with carved bone, African trade copper and vintage watch movements. I know there are some hard core watch collectors that cringe at the cannibalism that's required, but rest assured, all of the watches I use are unrepairable.
I've created a "Steampunk Grizzly Style" section in our Etsy.com shop and will be adding to it slowly in the future.
