Lois Wallace creates pieces for The Victorian Magpie’s Steampunk jewelry line inspired by her fascination with the Victorian Goth scene and Steampunk, even while remaining a conservative, traditional jeweler. Her continued friendship with one of her former jewelry coworkers (June Druchunas) who shares this love of Steampunk and led to the formation of The Victorian Magpie. Lois has 42 years of experience as a traditional jeweler, using her skills to create lasting pieces of artwork. Her pieces are soldered and resined and only delicate stones are glued on. This attention to detail assures that Victorian Magpie jewelry is very sought after.
