This was another one of those esoteric books I picked up on a whim from the "new books" shelf at the library. Really, I was just curious to finally find out exactly what that cryptic term "Steampunk" means. To my delight, as well as being an artsy how-to book, this actually is a sort of primer to Steampunk. There's an introduction explaining the term at the beginning, and short chapters interspersed between the jewelry projects explore different aspects of Steampunk style and history.

The jewelry itself is quirky, creative, and often beautiful. Most of it looks like it could belong on the set of the movie The Golden Compass. This book is worth a read, even if only for the sake of cultural literacy. But for a brief moment as I read it, I actually considered converting my entire wardrobe to Steampunk.
