I have some more Steampunk styles I am playing with, they are a touch quirky but they are fun!

I also made a purse for the first time, I have wanted to try it for quite sometime but just hadn't gotten to it until now.

Tomorrow is a torch day, and I am going to spend some quality time with my wacky side and play with my Steampunk designs.

I have been doing these eye beads for awhile now, but never get tired of making them! They are so fun and quirky! I got some steam punk gears in the mail today so tomorrow's torch session will be a continuation of the Steampunk masks and dolls...I should have more to show soon. For now I'll leave you with a little eye candy...quite literally, and some kisses. LOL!

I just finished up a custom order for my unique split print tiger/leopard beads! These beads are the reason I started handpainted design for my beads. I love animal prints, but somehow in glass they had alot of shine, but not the sparkle or sheen that I love so much about a great animal print. I am also able to add greater detail in the spots and stripes using this technique!

I have been admiring alot of beads done with murrini lately! Some look like they are complex flowers and even look almost like real ones. I have done a few very simple murrini over the years, but I think I might be ready to try some more complex types soon. Spring is on the way...and soon beautiful bright blooms will be everywhere! Here is an example of simple murini beads I have done. I would love to show you some of the picutes I have been looking at, but alas they are not mine to share.

I just signed up with and will be adding photos of my work to the galleries over there. Incredible collection of beads from so many talented artists! Here is my gallery page,
A browse through this site is like candy for the soul if you are a beadlover!!! Grab a cup of coffee, tea , or a soda and prepare to spend a few hours in beadheaven. :)
This one is a little more out there, it mimics a trunk inspired Steampunk mask. I also used fine silver mesh to give detail. I used Double Helix Triton Glass for the entire mask, when reduced alone it creates an oilslick effect, when reduced and encased it creates a mirrored effect which I used for the other goggle lense. This one is named Solomon Blackwell.
I have been very intrigued by Steampunk style artwork lately! So I have started to come up with some pieces of my own. These are bracelet or necklace beads done in lampwork glass.

This one is a classic Steampunk antique gas mask style. I used fine silver mesh encased beneath goggles of crystal clear Reichenbach glass. It has accents of triton silver glass to mimic metal rivets and frames. I used copper caps to compliment the Spanish leather look, and sterling lined to it ground it with the accents. This one I named Van Hubble.


Hi All!
      My name is Becca Grace, I am an artist and this my journey. Be warned this my interpretation. It may contain nonsensical ramblings, artistic process and ideas of the like, brilliant plans and goals, or maybe just about my day... not likely...but maybe now and again.

This is my first blog, so I am still finding my way around...and trying to figure out how to add pictures...connect to old friends, make new friends.
      On that note...Hello All! Welcome! Pull up a chair and stay awhile....
Check...One, Two.....Check, Check...
