Winnie Thye, 51, is always happy to receive damaged vintage watches and clocks. Instead of repairing them, she dismantles the timepieces and uses nitty-gritty parts to create steampunk jewellery pieces.
"I have always been spellbound by the genres of fantasy and science fiction, from Middle Earth elves to imaginary flying machines. I am captivated by steampunk fashion, especially the Victorian era opulence and the industrial revolution's grime and grit. I cannot imagine steampunk without clock gears, dials, cogs and regulator gauges," explained Thye.
