Just finished my latest steampunk sculpture.Some sort of fairy-like insectoid made using wire, taxidermy glass eyes, antique watch movement, clock parts & miscellaneous jewelry findings.The perfect specimen for a cabinet of curiosities i recently built.

Fantastic work man, really pops.  What kind of process does this entail?  Do you create these in a 3D program first or something?

Steampunk Jewelry Designer at Catherinette Rings
Introduction
Steampunk Jewelry Artist
http://CatherinetteRings.etsy.com/

Bio : Daniel Proulx was born in Montreal and spent a considerable time travelling the world before returning to his artistic roots, becoming an independent artist in 2008. He has found great inspiration in the steam era and now makes Steampunk jewelry with metal wire, gemstones, vintage clock parts and other unusual components. He loves creating organic shapes from wire and developing intricate designs with a mechanical/industrial feel. When Daniel was little he used to daydream about fantastic imaginary worlds. He would draw monsters, invent stories about magical items, or role-play with friends. Now he brings his art to life with stories from a distant parallel Steampunk universe. He uses his creations to share his passion for the world of Steampunk with the rest of us .
