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
