Buyer's Guide to Steampunk Christmas Ornaments
If you're like me you've waited till the last minute to put up the tree, but in case you were thinking about having a very steampunk yule then there are plenty of ornaments to help take your tree in a more gentlemanly direction.
Let's start off with the headman himself. Lynn Reno over at Desert Rubble does some amazing polymer ornaments, including this one of St. Nick decked out in goggles to keep his sight free when flying through the air on Christmas Eve. Her biomechanical fish and orchid pendants are also first-rate.
Lala Dangerous grew up getting a special ornament from her mother every year. Now she passes that tradition along with her custom, one-of-a-kind ornaments for sale. This selection suffers a bit from the "glue some gears on it" syndrome, but we're talking tree ornaments here. They don't need to be functional.
For the more high-end work, you want to visit EKCreations. This star has laser cut gears and a nonfunctioning clock face to really drive home the craftsmanship. The Swarovski Crystals it is accented with cause it to twinkle in the lights to boot!
