It was clear to us from the very beginning that we wanted Steampunk to become one of the main inspiration sources for Decimononic. There was, however, a hidden challenge in this: how could we conceive ‘genuine’ Steampunk-inspired fine jewelry? Which characteristics would turn a jewelry piece into a Steampunk creation? How could we formulate something genuine, unprecedented, unique? An answer to this urge to give shape and consistency to the concept of Steampunk jewelry was imperative.
Could we achieve this goal exclusively by our own means? Certainly not, and this is how our series of brief interviews was born: we wanted to give a voice to the Steampunk community in order to throw light on this issue.
We have interviewed twelve Steampunkers from eight countries: event organizers, fashion designers, musicians, writers… and we are determined to go on with this research activity. A year after the startup of this initiative we can only express our gratitude for the outstanding support of the Steampunk community.
The truth is that the reach of this inititative has become wider than expected, providing us with the perfect chance to delve into the Steampunk concept, scene, evolution and prospects with a real international approach. All this without forgetting the development of Steampunk jewelry, of course.
Share, learn from the past, dream a different future, create, be singular. Because Steampunk means all this… and much more. Follow us and join the conversation!
