Steampunk Jewelry - The Octopus

Octopus Abalone Earrings

Steampunk Jewelry - The Octopus

You see them everywhere, octopus are all the rage and it has a little bit to do with Steampunk & Gothic jewelry.

Did you know these little facts about the octopus (source Wiki):

The octopus have two eyes and four pairs of arms. An octopus has a hard beak, with its mouth at the center point of the arms. They have no internal or external skeleton. Octopuses are among the most intelligent and behaviorally flexible of all invertebrates.
The octopus inhabits many diverse regions of the ocean, including coral reefs, pelagic waters, and the ocean floor. They have numerous strategies for defending themselves against predators, -  the expulsion of ink, the use of camouflage and deimatic displays, their ability to jet quickly through the water, and their ability to hide. An octopus trails its eight arms behind it as it swims. All octopuses are venomous, but only one group, the blue-ringed octopuses, is known to be deadly to humans.  

Check out this very cool Octopus Locket Necklace at Vamps Jewelry.  We also have necklaces, bracelets and earrings with Octopus, Owls, Gears, Clock Hands and other Steampunk influenced jewelry!

Vamps Jewelry Profile

Vamps Jewelry Profile

Hi I'm Vamp. Designing jewelry for the romantic at heart from America's hometown, the one with the ROCK :) Plymouth, MA

Vamp's Gothic, Neo-Victorian, Rock, Steampunk, Mystical, Vintage inspired Handcrafted Jewelry - In Earrings, Bracelets, & Necklaces.

A few years back, I was packing orders for my rock n roll shop when I felt a need to express my creativity. I wanted to be able to express the different styles I love and jewelry was what called to me. I've always loved the energy in gemstones how they vibrate in your hands and I wanted to work with jewels. So on my way, I started creating jewelry with a romantic feel, in a Gothic Victorian vintage style.  I also make symbolic mystical jewelry with a wiccan pagan influence.

My jewelry website is at where you can find my full line of jewelry.

I enjoy designing earrings, necklaces, chokers & bracelets. I use glass beads, pearls, crystals, gemstones, charms, lockets, cameos/cabs, wire, suede, leather, lace & velvet. I love working with antique brass, antique silver, gunmetal & patina metals. My design styles are mostly of a dark nature but with a feminine romantic touch. I wire wrap, bead and color coordinate designs.

I'm very much inspired by romance, nature, anything mystical, the Victorian era, vintage styles, Gothic, Steampunk, vampire, rockabilly, the rock scene. I try to incorporate some those elements into my jewelry designs.

I hope you enjoy some of my pieces as I have enjoyed designing and making them.
