Bead Fest: Jan 2013

Hi Everyone!! Our next Bead Fest theme has been voted on and the theme is:


steampunk as a design aesthetic
We have “steampunk’d” everything from computers, desks, telephone, watches and guitars to cars, motorcycles, and whole houses. These objects can vary from a grungy look of a forgotten antique to the shiny overwrought newness of a Victorian gentleman’s club.
So think of brass and copper, glass,leather, and polished wood, engraving and etching, and details just for the sake of details.
Literature is a part of Steam punk……..however I’m focusing on the gadgets and eyeballs configured into a bead embroidered piece; not just a necklace or cuff, but possibly a mask or corset….let your imagination run wild.

ENTRY DEADLINE IS: January 31, 2013
