Victorian/Steampunk Gumball Machine, 2012
Nothing new to show in etchings. I've been working on pieces for holiday gifts and few personal projects. So after Christmas I will have many new items to show off.

This gumball machine was just a simple repaint of a flea-market find. This is directly inspired from the one done at Yes, there is a hole in the globe on the backside. Found out the globe was cracked when I got it home and a chunk broke off after completing it.

I want to also point out some links on the right side of this page. First, is Laura's Art from the Heart showcasing handmade jewelry and crafts. Then there is my sister's new project: Carousel Accessories' crocheted items can be seen at Deviant Art and Etsy Store.

Finally, almost all of the metal I use is purchased from They have a great selection and you can order cut-to-size. Please check them out here. (If you happen to use any link on this page and  purchase anything from them , I'll get a few dollars back to help me buy more metal. Hey, copper's not cheap anymore!)
