Paraphrasing Howard Carter (as he opened King Tut’s tomb).
I mentioned steampunk jewelry to one of my department’s researchers. He said his garage is basically full of boxes of watch parts. Did I want them? I told him that people make Steampunk jewelry, and even showed him on Ebay what these things go for. He’s not interested. Wants to unload them (to make room for the sealed safe he bought on Ebay–yep, okay).
So, I’ll be in the watch part business shortly, because I cannot stand to think of these things sleeping any longer. I know many of you make steampunk jewelry. I may do Etsy, I may just do it from here. I will give away lots once in a while to deserving steampunk artists who are struggling to afford supplies.
This will mean something to so few, but to those few–how hard do I rock now?
