Steampunk, is, in its truest form, when it is reimagined,a repurposed past of the future. Seeing through steamed goggles, I sat and cut up beaded necklaces that I had acquired over time. Some old, some newer...some I owned, some I had found, been given or discovered. it took time to sort...by colour, shape, or material....unique, plain and a "may never use" pile. I began to restring in one long beaded glory that i had hoped to make into a waist bead....something I had seen and researched. Then I took such pride in this strand, I thought to myself....this could be served as waist beads, hey...a wrapped bracelet...why not an ankle bead...and of course, a necklace! 4 in 1! How develishly prudent! And so....QUADRA-beads came to be.
