Thing A Day 2: Steampunk Goggles

Thing A Day - Day 2 002

Strips of brass, cleaned, gear pattern drawn and etched, patinaed with flame, metal folded for 8-sided goggles – one inch overlap for stability.  Sides add additional stability when worn.

Mesh folded, sniped, shaped, and formed.  Sides curled to prevent sharp points from sticking out.   Holes punched for riveting, and cord later on.

Riveted everything in place with brads and washers. Added waxed cotton cord for comfort when wearing and then inserted the nose piece.

Thing A Day - Day 2 006 Riveted first straps onto sides, then added as needed to fit my head.  More can be added so goggles can be worn by different people, or worn on a hat.
