Steampunk Fortnight Giveaway: Pendants from RockLove’s Anthology Collection

Steampunk events are one of the hardest times of the year for the Tor.com staff, because we get the opportunity to ogle some of the finest steampunk acoutrements in the world...and then send them to someone else.

This first giveaway of Steampunk Fortnight is no exception, since RockLove jewelry is offering one of the striking pendants from their Anthology line. The line is comprised of eight “exotic historical relics for the historical traveler,” each of which comes on a 21” chain and real or fanciful historic significance.

RockLove jewelry pieces The Captain, The Nomad, and The Traveler

The Captain, The Nomad, The Traveler

Like what you see? For a chance to win one of the pieces from the Anthology collection, just comment on this post. It would be especially cool it if you could tell us which pendant from the collection you most envision guiding you through rough waters, but a plain old comment will suffice if you want to decide later.

But that’s not all! RockLove also has a special offer for Tor.com readers: just enter the coupon code “TorSteampunk” on any purchase from the RockLove website for free international shipping on any order through the holiday season.

RockLove has been crafting elegant, edgy, and occasionally geeky jewelry for years, and their collection includes such gorgeous pieces as the Palimpsest Bee Compass pendant (inspired by Catherynne M. Valente’s Palimpsest), the Repo Zydrate Gun Necklace (of Repo: The Genetic Opera fame), exquisite sterling silver wrench earrings, and much more. Haven’t you always wanted to get your holiday shopping done before Halloween?

And there we have it. Are you an aristocrat? A scallywag?  A historian? A mage? The Lafayette? Time to live your dreams.


The Official Rules: To enter, leave one comment on this  post—duplicates won’t count—by noon EST, Sunday 10/24. The winner will be chosen randomly. Please check your email Tuesday or Wednesday; if we don’t hear back from the winner in 24 hours, another winner will be chosen. [ETN: closing date is actually 10/24]

17. Roundabout
My left arm is hydraulic
My right is clockwork driven
My backside, two curved plates of brass
That's pretty much a given
My bones are made of copper pipe
Each finger rivets gleams
Each hair I bear is spun gold leaf
My heart, it runs on steam.

34. voyager
I've never heard of Steampunk until a recent episode of "Castle" featured it. It's unfortunate that it isn't more mainstream, as it should be. Great review of the episode, by the way.

I do like all of these. However, it's "The Traveler" I envision guiding me through the rough waters of time and space travels.
PhoenixFalls
34. Webcudgel
I'd have to say the Nomad as I've taken up hiking and this seems to fit my style.
PhoenixFalls
35. DD Syrdal
These are wonderful! I love jewelry that's different, something that has some history or meaning behind it. If I could be so lucky, I'd love to have the Lafayette.

Great giveaway!

43. Vavia A
My current interests include Age of Sail and Nelson and also an instance of a St. Christopher medal, so The Traveler seems ideal!
PhoenixFalls

the aristocrat is defintely my favorite.

i love all of rocklove's stuff. i bought a pair of the lenore x-long chain earrings and i love them! they're such a dramatic statement.

45. JoeyS
Another RockLove jewelry fan. The Nomad, with the wolf tooth, appeals to me the most.
PhoenixFalls
46. The Literary Omnivore
Oh, I'd take the Captain–I dunno, something about the HMS Victory coin manages to appeal to both my French heritage and my rampant Anglophilia (I'm not very good at being a Frenchwoman).
PhoenixFalls
47. Beth C.
All three are pretty, but I favor the Nomad.
PhoenixFalls
48. Callie H.
I love RockLove jewelry. I have the Zydrate Gun necklace and it's so awesome and well-made.
PhoenixFalls
50. Danté Bell
I'd have to go with the traveller as a gift to my wife. She's been a flight attendant for 21 years and has only had some minor mishaps. I would like this for her to keep her safe on her travels as I can't be there to do that for her.

It's hard to pick a favorite - the Traveller, I guess.

I was just looking at a bunch of steampunk jewelry yesterday, but was sad everything cost so much, lol.
I like the Aristocrat, Traveler, Nomad, Historian, Mage and Lafayette the best though, I hope I win!

The Traveler is BEAUTIFUL!!!

70. Hobbit
I love RockLove's work; in the anthology collection, the traveler and the nomad both call to me (for I am both), but if I were to only pick one I'd have to go with the nomad.
james loyd
71. gaijin
At first glance the Nomad was my least favorite, but once I saw the close-up and discovered that what I had taken for a moon was a wolf tooth it quickly inverted the covet rankings.

Of course any would be a boon.

85. FreakFran
I'm an eternal traveller; I've been doing researchs on stories and tales about the fantastic and I consider each text I read a very unique journey and, well, in college I pretty much read about 80-100 pages a day so I can get all my articles done. I've just completed a 60-page essay about Sandman, so, I deserve "The Traveller" for I've came back from a long journey through the Dreaming.

86. cirelle
Oh yes, I love them all. As usual. But probably the Captain best.

The Traveller reminds me of both why I love to read fantasy, and why I seek to explore as often as I can. What a beautiful piece of jewellery! I'm off to daydream...

These are amazing and I could see myself as The Nomad the Traveler since travel has always defined my life. I went and lived in New Zealand for three years and it changed the course of my life. Now I'm in Michigan learning to be a librarian and feeling very blessed and terribly busy.

Waaaaant! They're all so awesome looking!
But given the sheer amount of traveling I've done in this last year alone (cross country drive...thrice) The Traveler or The Nomad would be most appropriate, thank you.

It would have to be a toss up between the Caption and the Scallywag. The caption for the connection to Mark Siegel's webcomic; the Scallywag becuase, who in the right mind would pass up a fine skeleton key? For me it sybolizes adventure to come.

114. AllisonPlus
The Historian.
With a little Traveler mixed in...

168. MiriamD
I love the Traveler set. You can pretty much imagine any old sailor of a certain time clutching a St. Christopher medallion in a storm--I think that one's the most fitting match for the medal of the HMS Victory. I was just reading some of the Lyrical Ballads by Wordsworth and Coleridge and that set immediately put me in mind of the Rime of the Ancient Mariner. The 1805 timing of the HMS Victory at Trafalger puts it in roughly the same historical context, and the quasi-orthodox Christian mythology of St. Christopher fits in quite well with Coleridge's poem. Pretty much a coincidence--I read this post as distraction from reading the poems--but a cool one!

The Traveler pendant saved my life by blocking the sting of Dr. Mordoff's deadly clockwork scorpion, the poisoned point striking my lucky charm with a heavy whack.

The machine backed away, readying for another strike, a loud whirring coming from its brass body. At that same moment, I drew and raised my ancient blaster and fired point blank between its eyes which still glowed with the cold blue of its radium brain.

The scorpion shuddered and then gears grinded to a hault with one last high-pitched squeak.

I own the Zydrate gun - RockLove's work is beyond fantastic! MORE!

All three are beautiful. I am picturing my wife wearing the Nomad, obtaining protection from the petrified wolf tooth. I would be pleased to wear the Captain necklace myself.

Moving every couple of years, skipping interests, eyes always on the next adventure, ever the lonely researcher/writer ... Patron Saint of Travelers & Lost Souls? Sounds like my guide for sure.

Lovely assemblages! The Nomad calls my name!
Kristin Brenemen
256. wyldkyss
I'm torn between the Captain and the Traveler necklaces - the medallion choices on each are lovely. I'd have to lean towards the Captain's asian mermaid charm as the more interesting though.
PhoenixFalls

A *big* fan of RockLove's pretties... count me in!

I would have to say "The Mage" speaks to me the most. I can see its magical powers leading me through the mazes of my life.

I'd love any of this, but "The Traveler" and "The Historian" are the most wonderful!

They are all lovely, but I think "The Captain" is the one I like the best.

feeling the traveler - just got home from travelling to see my daughter who loves this jewelry.

The Historian would lead anyone through a rough spot. Sitting around the neck of a giant it clearly saw the past and glimpsed ahead into the future. If anything can help right a floundering ship or life, it would be knowing the mistakes of the past in order to correct the rudder of the ship struggling in the current of the present heading towards the mysterious misty land of the future.

Wow. Those are amazing. I think it might be the key that did it, but 'the scallywag' made me breath catch when I first saw it.
PhoenixFalls
265. YouKnowMe
These are gorgeous!
I especially like the mage. And the nomad. And the scallywag...
PhoenixFalls
266. FoofLemay
I'd love to have one! They're all lovely :)
PhoenixFalls
268. RosiePeriannath
Lovely pieces. It's very hard to choose, but I think I'd pick the Lafayette.
PhoenixFalls
269. navintzac
Wow, I love all the jewlery on the site! The zydrate gun makes me overly happy!
I think my favorite, though, is the Captain. The sailing ship calls to me; I'm a US Navy Sailor.
If I can't have a necklace, can I request more poetry from commenter #17, Roundabout?

The Captain is gorgeous.

The captain speakes to me, perhaps because of the sinuous, organic twining of the mermaid coin juxtaposed with the Victory medallion.

I used to wear a chinese coin on a chain when I was younger. I lost that necklace over 15 years ago. Seeing these brought back so many memories. I think it's a lovely collection and The Captain and The Lafayette especially remind me of what I once lost. :)

lovely works of art!
Matt Paolucci
302. invisiblexninjas
That Captain one is really really cool. But, the Traveler piece probably speaks to me the most. Not because I'm an accomplished world trekker, mostly because I'm rather vagrant.
PhoenixFalls
304. clairelesley
Beautiful, as are the other pieces featured here and on their website. Of the three noted, I think I'm most drawn to 'The Nomad' though.
PhoenixFalls
305. Mickie T
Beautiful jewelry! I think I hear The Traveller calling my name...

1st, thank you for offering free goodies to people who read, very nice of you!
I'm sitting here listening to a bunch of Sea Chanties, so I'd have to go with The Captain, though The Aristocrat is also very nice.

I adore the Nomad...don't suppose I could have those lovely wrench earrings too, eh? Well then, just the necklace I suppose. :)
PhoenixFalls
326. Sunryse
My favorite is The Scallywag. There's something about keys that are almost magical.
PhoenixFalls
327. Jkrowyn
all are beautiful, I was thinking the nomad, but the more I look at them I'm thinking The Traveler. (Although the Bee compass is pretty sweet too!)
PhoenixFalls
328. purpledodah
I have fell for The Mage. I would love a wolf tooth for protection, I need all the protection I can get lol. the 'sailor twain' on the necklace reminds me of my dad, he was a sailor. He's not with me now, so I guess my imagination could see this as a way of having his protection around me again.

329. Alleya
Argh! Too many nice ones to choose. I think the Nomad is the best for me.

I would have to say the Scallywag is my favourite: I'm a fan of old keys. The Captain would be my second choice. ^_^

While I would never even begin to classify any of these as "steam punk", they are nice pieces.
Scallywag, Mage, and Nomad were my faves.
Kah Perry

"The Nomad" is amazing. I rather like it.

I thought Sunday was the 24th and Saturday was the 23rd, but the rules say to enter by noon on Sunday the 23rd. Oh well.

Oh, and now I've discovered the Mage, which has both of those pieces, but not the ship coin. Decisions, decisions, decisions.
PhoenixFalls
358. dragonwomant
I would definitely choose The Captain. The mermaid on it is really cool.
PhoenixFalls
359. goldendelicious
How am I supposed to pick just one?! I think I like the Mage the best. Or maybe the Scallywag.

371. Neroon
The Mage is my hearts desire.
PhoenixFalls
372. Jason L.
It seems impossible to choose. I love the Nomad, the wolf tooth is excellent. The Traveler's St. Christopher pendant is perhaps more appropriate for my steampunk costume, though.

But you know, you got to go with what you feel and I feel like I could come up with a good story for a fossilized wolf tooth. Nomad it is. Perhaps an instant fossilization rifle could be conceived...
PhoenixFalls
373. nishatalitha
The Traveller and The Historian are both fantastic - I did a BA majoring in Classics and History, but I'm planning to go travelling soon. Too hard to choose between them.
PhoenixFalls
374. Sadira Tash'mir
I think the Nomad peaks my fancy the greatest. It feels as though one should always have the light of the moon to guide oneself through the deepest night. For even reflected sunlight is stronger than a great darkness.
-Sadira Tash'mir
PhoenixFalls
375. Jane Virgo
They're all so pretty! I like the Captain, 'cause the square hole in the coin is so exotic - like Chinese money. But I'm a scallywag at heart, so the Nomad calls to me. I'd like something a bit wild to guide me across uncharted waters.
PhoenixFalls
377. JJazz

I would love to win the Repo Zydrate Gun..it reminds me of all the good times spent with my dad watching what would later be termed Steampunk movies (and radio shows!)...this was all back in the 70's when I was growing up...if the term had been created, we didn't know it but he sure was a fan and turned me onto it. He didn't live to see the glory it has become. He died in 1980, *on* my 19th birthday...celebrating my bday ever since is a mixed emotion event. 30 years gone and still missed. I used to write stories as a teen and he even drew a gun that looked a lot like that for one of my stories..he called it a Vacuu-bubble Gun, encasing bad guys in the force field bubble and reducing the inside to a vaccuum! (Messy but effective..lol)

434. L-cubed
Too many beautiful pieces, but my girlfriend would love the Palimpsest Bee Compass. Its layered stars, the partially "unknown" circular design embedded in the layers, and the featured image linking it all with the physicality of a working nature would make her go crazy (and she might never take the pendant off).
