Welcome to The Brass Caliper
Featuring Steampunk, fandom-inspired, repurposed, wire-wrap, semi-precious, and hand-crafted jewelry, clocks, lamps, artwork, games, cosplay, and all sorts of awesomeness.
As we look forward to 2019, The Brass Caliper has had to make some tough choices. And one of those tough choices has been discontinuing the Brass Packs for now. Lori's health has been the focus of our efforts in the last few months (her warranty has expired, so of course, everything is breaking). She had major surgery the end of November, and while she originally thought she could keep up with the bones of the operation, turns out that recovery is harder than it looks on TV. The Brass Packs aren't going away, they're just pausing momentarily while we get Lori back to where she needs to be.
We are here, we are active, and we are dedicated to helping you with your nerdy and steampunk dreams.
With great love,
Eric & Lori Embree
The Brass Caliper
Our Monthly Mystery Jewelry Treasure Packs for Steampunk Nerdy Aficionados.
It's like getting surprises from your nerdy friends who get you. We just wish we could deliver them to you via The Mystery Machine.
From the popular artists you've seen at ComiCon! Your Monthly Mystery Brass Pack by The Brass Caliper includes a monthly Steampunk and / or Nerdy original creation based on monthly themes.
PROJECTS & EXCLUSIVES
From time to time, we will introduce a collection only for a particular ComiCon, Event, or Limited Time Only. Here is where you will find these things. Be aware though, they may disappear faster than the green bean salad at Thanksgiving dinner.
What's Going On In Our World
^^^^BLATANT GEORGE STRAIT SONG REFERENCE^^^^
Everyone has one, and we can't be left out, so we have one too. Lori does most of the writing, but she tries really hard to get other contributors (cough: ERIC). It's a good thing she is the most interesting fan in the world. Stay nerdy my friends.
Activism & causes
Because what is life if you can't make the world better. If you are passionate about something, chances are, someone else is too. And maybe that someone else is US! Even if it isn't, we can custom make your passion into a reality.
Words To Live By Project
This project is simple, yet has the potential to change the world. Select or customize a word charm that reminds, empowers, or inspires you. A gift for YOU! Then select another word charm for another person and give it to THEM as a gift. The gift isn't so much the charm as the conversation you will have when you tell the person why you chose that word for them. The conversation continues when it is "paid forward" from your chosen person, and the ripples of meaning and connection go out from there. In test markets, they not only sold out, but every experience was positive and life-changing. YOU HAVE TO TRY IT. It will change your world. Your charm can be fashioned into a necklace, bracelet, keychain, or zipper pull.
You haven't seen lamp light until you've seen it through the eyes of our Steampunk Lamp Artist Eric Embree. He is truly a creative genius who has created some amazing things. You owe it to yourself to have one of his pieces in your home.
OUR VERY FAVORITES
Ok...While in theory ALL of our creations are our favorites; we do have some that really are our favorites (like that one child, you know who you are - wink, wink).
These are the items that, after we created them--we stood back in admiration and said to ourselves--"DAYUM---That is a mighty fine creation."
The other ones we said all of those words, just not the "DAYUM" part.
COME SEE US
Want to know where you can buy our cool jewelry in person? Or better yet, see our beautiful mugs in the flesh & get our autographs (who knows, they may be worth millions--no billions one day)? Look no further!
Sold Out (but we can make more)
These items are sold out, but NEVER FEAR! If you see something you like in here, we can probably create something similar for you! Send us an email - firstname.lastname@example.org
