I have spent awhile today doing research. No, I am not back in college, I have been researching the Steampunk Jewelry trend. As you know, last spring I started working part-time at Julie's Xpressions in Hastings on Thursday (my day off from the full time bookkeeping job) and Saturday. Julie has set up a trunk show with C-Koop beads that will be arriving any day now! Very exciting and Sara's enameled components and beads are very fun and funky. Julie and I decided we should try our hand at having a Steampunk class, incorporating some of the fun gears and things from the C-Koop product line. However, though we are excited about this prospect, neither of us have ever made Steampunk jewelry! I love mixed media jewelry and Julie and I both love the freedom to use whatever catches your fancy in the Steampunk style. Would you like to know more? Here are some fun and helpful links I found today.
