Pet portraits

The Victorians were a quirky lot who admired all things natural including animals and birds. They also considered their pets as family members, often treating them like royalty. Animal portraits were a reflection of this ideology,
portraying pets and other common animals as proper Ladies and or Gentlemen.


Ah, the wonder and absurdity of Steampunk! Based on an alternative timeline where steam and not electricity runs the world, and everything lady like and gentlemanly from the Victorian era is in fashion, Steampunk engages the imagination and tickles our non-sensibilities.

These Neo-Victorian themed one of a kind statement pins combine historic images with whimsical themes, and a touch of modern ideology to appeal to your non-sensibilities. Quirky doesn’t begin to describe the effect!

These themed statement pins pays homage to these Victorian sensibilities and portray different animal dressed in proper attire or iconic steam punk images on a kilt style pin to fancy up a ladies’ or gents’ lapel, jumper, or overcoat. All pins include gemstone, metal, and glass beads and findings upcycled from previously loved jewellery bits and bobs. The glass cabochon is handmade.

I make each pin to be unique so that it has its own personality. So there won’t be another one quite any one of those shown here.
