Testimonials from happy steampunk customers! 

Large steampunk heart... "We gave Kristen a few mementos of our meeting and whirlwind courtship 46 years ago. We included our uniform patches, name tags, novelty pins, a wedding photo and my husband's final pay check for $2.69 when he moved on to a new career. Kristen added all the steam punk magic, making it a unique piece that makes us smile everyday." ~ Rita Yates, El Dorado Hills, CA

My association with Kristen has been one of the most positive experiences I have ever had.  I wanted to gift my sister and brother-in-law with of one of her specially designed metal hearts for their anniversary.  I consulted with Kris; she asked me to put together information about their life together that she could  interpret artistically and include as design elements in the project.   During the whole process of designing and “crafting” the heart, we collaborated numerous times; this amazing artist wanted to be sure she was re-creating my ideas into her own unique (and VERY special) art form.    She provided working photos of her project as it proceeded, making changes, implementing ideas, doing whatever was necessary to make a “perfect” finished art piece.  What a treasure she created!!  My family has other pieces of her artwork as well; Kristen’s stunning and distinctive artistic talent is a mark of each piece.  Thank you, Kris!

I was interested in a piece of metal art as a gift for my wife for our wedding anniversary and, after seeing Kristen’s Steampunk Hearts, I knew this would be the perfect gift.  I advised Kristen that this was a wedding anniversary gift and inquired if she could add mementos to the heart commemorating my relationship with my wife and our family.  Kristen was very open to this and excited to be part of this experience.  She invited me to her workshop where I selected the mementos from her vast collection of trinkets and confirmed the design; she listened to my ideas, was very patient and provided creative input that definitely enhanced the design.  Kristen was very accommodating with my short turn-around-time and showed a genuine commitment to ensuring this gift met my expectations; we were in constant communication throughout the entire process of creating this art piece as she wanted to ensure I was comfortable with the design, layout and coloring.  The final piece far exceeded my expectations and my wife absolutely loved it; it made for a very special anniversary.  We have received compliments by everyone who has seen it - noting how unique, beautiful and special it is.  Kristen is an absolute joy to work with – a true professional whose personable and accommodating nature made for a wonderful experience and her skill, creativity and imagination produces amazing art.  Thank you Kristen – looking forward to our next project!!

Step 1. Decide what you would like to include in the heart

Think about messages would like to convey in the heart. Themes might be about:

  • special travel or vacation spots like Paris, the mountains, etc.
  • hobbies, like hiking, wine tasting, movies, etc.
  • sports you both enjoy.
  • family, friends, pets.
  • reading interests.
  • the list is endless!
Create a list of things you might have to represent the message or theme you’ve chosen.

  2. Collect personal items you have that convey fond memories of your message or theme: 
  3. Favorite photos of the two of you, your family, your pets
  4. Special mementos or trinkets - cards, invitations, ticket stubs.  If you don’t want to use the original, consider scanning or taking a photo of the items.
