I’ve always thought that the best beads to go with the steampunk style are glass. Steampunk is industrial, and glass is industrial. It has clear colours that contrast with neutral steel or yellowish brass. And stones are natural, they’re all about being natural. But then I got bored with what I was doing on regular basis and started to experiment. I came up with this – natural stabilized turquoise. It actually looks a little bit rusty. And the colour is perfect with brass.
