Steam Punk Charm Swap Reveal!

The theme of this charm swap was "Steam Punk"!
So instead of the normal charm sizes we usually make, I encouraged the participants to make what ever suits their fancy as long as they adhere to "Steam Punk" genre.
For those of you unfamiliar with Steam Punk,
here is a definition according to Wiki:Steampunk is a sub-genre of science fiction, alternate history,
and speculative fiction that came into prominence during the 1980s and early 1990s.
Specifically, steampunk involves an era or world
where steam power is still widely used—
usually the 19th century and often Victorian era Britain
that incorporates prominent elements of either science fiction or fantasy.
Works of steampunk often feature
anachronistic technology or futuristic innovations
as Victorians may have envisioned them;
in other words, based on a Victorian perspective
on fashion, culture, architectural style, art, etc.
This technology may include such fictional machines as those found
in the works of H. G. Wells and Jules Verne
or real technologies like the computer but developed earlier in an alternate history.
