Animals have long played a part in the Steampunk genre, often depicted as industrialized or mechanical versions of themselves. Some like the Kraken, which has become the icon of Steampunk, have come from other sources relevant to the time period. Based on Victorian clothing and fashion, Steampunk mixes other aspects of the 1900s like industry, invention and technology. It’s classed as a post-apocalyptic hybrid genre. Steampunk has also taken influences from lots of other popular cultures of the time, especially literature. Since the early days of Jules Verne’s, “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea”, Alfred Tennyson’s, The Kraken, and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s, The Maracot Deep, mythical creatures have both frightened and fascinated us.
These Steampunk Animal Necklaces are perfect for Steampunk cosplay events, Halloween parties, fancy dress parties and Victorian costume balls.
Steampunk Dragonfly Necklace
A detailed piece of jewelry, this Steampunk Animal necklace features an elegant dragonfly pendant. Dragonfly’s have also become popular in Steampunk fashion, and I can see why. They are naturally beautiful and unique but with an industrial or mechanical look about them, it only seems fitting to add some gears and cogs to give them a true steampunk makeover.
This Dragonfly necklace has a chunky oblong body filled with gear detailing, a long link style tail and 4 intricately designed wings. At around 3 inches from wing to wing and about 2.5 inches long it’s quite a large piece of jewelry which is perfect for a Steampunk costume.
