I am both thrilled and sad to announce our very last Steampunk Month Giveaway (a Halloween edition), this beautiful jeweled spider brooch from TrashAndTrinkets.
A tribute to one of the most fabulous steampunk performances, ever:
During its time as the European City of Culture visitors to one of its main railway stations. La Princesse was the centre point of a four day piece of performance art during early September 2008. Scientists, played by members of the La Machine company, removed the spider to Albert Dock—to a place of quarantine as they feared that the spider was about to lay her eggs. Interviews were given by the scientists to willingly credulous members of the press.
This brooch has a clockwork body and black metal finish. Its eyes and little mouth are jewels, and it measures 2″ across. If it means anything, it looks really freaking cool, and has a nice weight to it.
Gypsy has a great shop that you should check out or else face dire consequences*.
*Consequences consist of missing out on totally awesome stuff.
