This might be one of my favorite steampunk pieces I’ve found. I’ve seen a lot of steampunk bugs and spiders made out of wire like this one. However, I think it was very creative to turn it into something practical like a pin cushion. Whenever I make things I try to not let them be just pretty things to sit on a desk, but things to wear or use. This is a perfect illustration of how to turn something so popularly made and put a new spin on it and make it uniquely practical. Beautiful piece to get ideas going for sure.
