Steampunk Hearts

 Hi there!  Wanted to show you another steampunk project I've been working on.  This time, I placed the tiny watch parts inside hearts.
 My teenage daughter already picked one out, and she's my biggest critic.
 These take me days to make, because I first place all the tiny parts inside the heart.  Kind of like putting together a puzzle.
When it's ready, I layer resin on the top, while being careful not to dump it out the sides.  It's quite a process, but I do have fun doing these.
Well, hope you have a great weekend!
Take care,

Available Work

I hope your new year is going well!  I've been hard at work making stuff, and I wanted to share with you what I've come up with.  Here are some steam punk earrings, they're only 1/2" and are filled with tiny watch parts covered in resin.  You can find them on my website.

I had this old tintype from my mom's family, and I wish I knew who he is!  I think it's my great grandfather.
Some more hearts I've made.  This one includes a page from a Godey's Lady's book from 1862.

I sew these together with vintage laces, hankies and photos, so they're all one of a kind. They're also found on the website.

Here's a necklace that you can add your own charms to.
 Like this.
 I'm now adding a lobster clasp to every MJ Ornaments charm sold.  Makes it easier to attach to a necklace or bracelet.  Hope you have a great day!
Take care,
