Anyone who creates or buys steampunk jewelery from old watch parts should be on the lookout for toxic radium paint.

Jane Irwin, who makes and sells jewelery from watch parts, has discovered that a recent batch of parts she received included trace amounts of the radioactive green paint. After looking into just how much of a risk radium can be, she is now offering everyone she’s sold jewelery to a free inspection and/or full refund of their pieces.

I strongly urge those who handle old watch parts, both buyers and sellers alike, to read her article and inspect your pieces to make sure they’re safe.

I am the webmaster of this website. I am not the original creator of the website. Wings of steam was originally created by a group of cosplayers at an anime convention. Their domain/website expired in 2013. In 2014, a year later, I personally renewed the domain and restored and redesigned the original website. I definitely do not take credit for the previous owners blog posts. They did an amazing job for a few years on this website, and should be given credit. They put a lot of time into Wings of Steam.
