How We Describe STARLING Art Jewelry Pocket Watches

Follow the time travel adventures of Jeff and Allisandra, people from different time periods that meet through the power of the STARLING watch. Adventure with them as they outwit the watch’s evil inventor and find a love that spans across time. Purchase any of the actual pocket watches and dig into the entire graphic novel.

The Vision Behind Starling
Frank Cohen, CEO says:
“STARLING was born from my participation in science fiction, cosplay, and Steampunk conferences, events, novels, graphic literature, and technology. These were the fuel to ignite the Maker Movement that has now gone world wide. Steampunk stories are often about how women break the glass ceiling, how people make things to surmount poverty and challenges, and how education, problem solving, and critical thinking move the world forward.”
“When I invented the Chillovean lighting system I soon realized that I could take the effect with me in my pocket. The Chillovean glow comes from four high tech light processors capable of 67 million color combinations, all housed in STARLING’s beautiful Victorian-style pocket watch.”
“So it was with great pleasure that STARLING opened the opportunity to write my first fiction short story. I found my writing voice is a combination of science fiction, romance, and adventure novels. Each chapter teaches ways to lead more mindful, energetic, and long lives. For example, the main characters – Jeff and Alli – find they must practice meditation and yoga techniques to overcome obstacles in the story.”
