Harlan’s Emporium of the Curious and the Bizarre

Our approach to Steampunk blends masculine and feminine elements.

As Steampunk artists/makers, all of our jewelry is handmade by the two of us. We use a mix of components in our work: vintage costume jewelry; real locks, keys, and gears; semiprecious stones and polished fossils; cameos, charms, and jewelry findings. We paint our goggles and masks by hand before adding additional adornment, transforming them into unique creations. Some of our other accessories, such as bow ties, suspenders/bracers, and bags, are created from thrift store finds that we alter, adding our signature flair. etsy.com/shop/harlansemporium
