Awesome! Do you have to do anything to the edges of aluminum? Ie. are they sharp?

WHAT is steampunk?

From the (online) Urban Dictionary: Steampunk is a subgenre of speculative fiction, usually set in an anachronistic Victorian or quasi-Victorian alternate history setting. It could be described by the slogan "What the past would look like if the future had happened sooner." For further explanations, go forth and Google. Besides fiction, the concept has been applied to design. In the case of this brooch, though, I don't think it succeeded. For an excellent example of steampunk, rent Will Smith's movie "Wild, Wild West."
