Rusty Dreams

Have I showed you my new Steampunk pendant. It has gears, patina brass, watch parts and my own glass bead in the center. It was pretty fun to make and I can't wait to make more.

I am having dreams about finding an antique, second hand store that has hidden old rusty gears, washers, metal stampings, watches, and just plain ole junk that I could spend hours sorting though. Wouldn't that be grand. I bet I could find some cool stuff in Tucson. I used to go every year when I had the bead store, but can no longer afford to go. I do miss it, not so much Tucson (its dusty, brown, gritty, and not nearly enough green spaces) but I loved the shows. You could find treasures galore around each corner. I need to try and make it back there.
