If you will allow me to indulge myself for a moment, today’s peek back in the Art Bead Scene archives is one of my own posts from 2008 when I first started exploring Steampunk. It’s hard to believe that was almost four years ago now. It’s fun to see the way Steampunk exploded in the craft scene… it was pretty cool to be there from the start to see how things evolved. While I still am involved in the imagery and genre of the scene, it is exciting to think about what new trends are developing right now…
Perhaps we will see the rise of some new trends in some current links from some of our beady friends:
