Steampunk Emporium Booklaunch

I was lucky enough to be invited to attend the booklaunch of Jema Hewitt's latest work "Steampunk Emporium: Creating Fantastical Jewelry, Devices and Oddments from Assorted Cogs, Gears and Curios".

The evening's events included readings from the book, some fab stage acts including  the first time travelling comedian and enough tea, cakes and pimms to sink a (steam) ship. One could meet the author, Jema "Emily Ladybird" Hewitt, buy a copy of the book 

and even meet characters from the book 

The book looks amazing and includes tales of adventure as well as fantastical mixed media jewellery projects. There is so much inside to tempt both jewellers and non jewellers. The original jewellery pieces from the book made a guest appearance at the launch.

A top night with top food and entertainment and of course, I got my book signed!

Toodles darling - maybe I haven't quite mastered the Steampunk lingo yet...
