Figments by Kathleen Steampunk Ball Costume Contest Loot Donation

A shine of gold, a flash of silver; this is a necklace after my own heart crafted by Figments by Kathleen.

Based in Sherman, TX, Kathleen brings to life the figments of her imagination that become pieces of jewelry, wearable art, assemblages to hang on the wall or shelf and original, one-of-a-kind three dimensional ACEOs.

Kathleen creates Figments from a wide range of things including but not limited to semi-precious gemstones, lampwork glass, Czech glass, metal, wood and bone beads and a wide variety of pendants. Her pieces are one-of-a-kind, handmade jewelry creations that are as much fun to look at as they are to wear. No two Figments are ever the same so when you buy one you are buying a unique piece of wearable artwork.

Kathleen's Figments assemblages and ACEOs are made with bits and pieces of whatever fits with the theme she works on. This include old tin-types, watch and clock pieces, beads, gears, lace, cards, fabric, ceramic, wood, miniatures, photographs, small toys, etc. These Figments are, most definitely, one-of-a-kind pieces of art.

Check out the Necklaces, Steampunk/Filigree/Keys, Earrings, Bracelets, Goddesses, ACEOs, and More!

Personally my favorites include her Purse/Camera Bag and the Gear Candle Holders called Oiling the Gears and the necklace Gear Burst! She offers a great selection of pieces for men and women.


Grab your goggles and lace up your corsets!
