I've just made my very first steampunk items and they're not even for me! I was taking alarm clocks apart and realised some of the parts would make nice earrings for my wife. Two dollars at the dollar store later I had these. Nothing incredible but I like them, and my wife too :)

So elegantly simple and simply exquisite. If your wife likes them, then there really is nothing else that needs to be stated.

Simple things are often the best. These are mighty fine, my friend!

I've found what what to do with the other gears I took out of these alarm clocks and a few watches. I thought the points of the collar on my shirt were a bit too long and didn't feel Victorian enough so I "steampunked" them up a bit.

Then, I used the rest of the parts to make a brooch. This is all still very simple but I like the result.

 The brooch design is well organized and laid out - nicely done!
