Holiday Gift Idea: Leather Belt & Steampunk Buckle

Designer Delphine Pontvieux of NYET Jewelry

NYET Jewelry Big Shoulders Belt with Steampunk Buckle
Big Shoulders Belt with Steampunk Buckle by NYET Jewelry (Chicago)

This brown leather belt with an iconic steampunk buckle is a beautiful handmade piece designed by Delphine Pontivieux of NYET Jewelry in Chicago. 

We especially love that the thick belt is engraved with the caption: CHICAGO THE CITY OF BIG SHOULDERS in 3/4 inch old English calligraphy. 

“Steampunk” fashion is a subgenre of the steampunk movement in science fiction. It is a mixture of the Victorian era’s romantic view of science in literature and elements from the Industrial Revolution in Europe during the 1800s. The fashion is designed with a post-apocalyptic era in mind.  – Wikipedia
