Pete Level Makes New Out of the Old with Jewelry from Watch Movements

Pete Lever's stunning steam punk jewelry and cuff links are made from old vintage watch movements from Swiss and Russian watches. The mix of the old and new is intriguing, crafting an industrial feel to the accessories.

The ironic and paradoxical mood of this project is not only through the futuristic and yet old aspect of it, but also through the mechanical and yet elegant look. The pieces are both masculine as well as feminine. Regardless of which perspective one looks at it, this unisex collection is beautifully eye-catching. The pieces are stunning and original, the gorgeous watch movement ring being my favorite.

The steam punk ideal of integrating old features to create an apocalyptic future feel is effectively integrated in Pete Lever's project. It is currently being funded on Kickstarter. Stats for Steampunk Watch Jewelry Trending: Older & Warm
