Hi, I am Laura Ross. I started Barnyard Steamworks in April 2016 with my first show in October 2016. I enjoy participating in Art Shows, Art in the Parks and Arts & Crafts shows. 

I started in 2016 creating jewelry with a steampunk influence. I still create a steampunk light style art jewelry incorporating broken antique pocket watches from the 1860's - 1930's, vintage wristwatches, vintage and Victorian Age jewelry, old coins and some found objects at times. I also do Altered Art Jewelry.  My art jewelry is one-of-a-kind and all handmade in the heartland of Iowa.

My husband, Terry, and I have been married for 23 years. Together we have 5 grown children and 10 grandchildren. We love to spend time in the outdoors camping and creating art together.  Terry creates Faux Metal Top Hats, altered canvases and altered furniture.  Our dream is to get an RV and take our creations across the USA participating in Art Shows.
