Jealous of Tessa? Get your own Clockwork jewelry

I just finished Cassandra Clare’s Clockwork Angel. And I liked it, but is it just me or does the title angel play a less-than-main role in the book? Tessa’s necklace spent more time being a statement piece and heirloom than saving the day, but hopefully we’ll see more of what it can do in Clockwork Prince (which I’m in a very long line for at the library). Until then, thanks to the Internet and enormous popularity of everything Steampunk, you too can have some clockwork jewelry of your own. Click on the images below to go to the website where you can buy what you see.
