I’ve really been getting into Steampunk lately. For a while I thought it was a little contrived, like the basement vampire kids, and I’ll never really “choose” or “belong to” a scene (I just can’t commit and don’t really care – just about indie fashion in general) but Steampunk has some elements that appeal to me because of other interests I have like Science fiction, creative antique technologies (real and made up) and Victorian style in general. I started making jewelry, a little less busy and garish than some of the Steampunk jewelry Ive seen (a good thing to me at least). I’ll probably be selling it soon on etsy! Among other jewelry and crafts I’ve been busy with. Horray!
