DIY Rope and Brass Bracelet Tutorial from Eat.Sleep.Make. This is an easy DIY with everything you need at the hardware store except the wire. I especially like like the wire wrapped ends and clasp. For pages of Hardware Store DIYs go here, and for an archive of 640 DIY Bracelts go here.
Anni Albers, Necklace from hardware, ca. 1940. Brass grommets on length of chamois. ©2003 The Josef and Anni Albers Foundation / Artists Rights Society (ARS), New York here.
Love the patina on the brass grommets. Again, ways to get this various aged or not aged looks all over the internet.
DIY “Most detailed Instruction how to build a Steampunk keyboard from the workshop of Admiral Aaron Ravensdale”. I think this has been posted before - but not the tutorial. I have to admit - I’m not going to do this. But how great is this? Detailed tutorial by Admiral Aaron Ravensdale at Instructables here. He also has his own Steampunk website here and has a 70 page PDF download of the project with the layout of the buttons in another photoshop file. Only catch is that the download is in German (soon to be translated into English).
