At her recent Rocky Mountain Bead Society Steampunk lecture, Jean Campbell mentioned that she likes digging around her local hardware store for jewelry supplies. A generous member of the audience mentioned their favorite “stuff” store. The shop is Surplus Tools and Commodities at 1411 W. Alameda in Denver, a treasure trove of well, hardware chaos. Piles and tables and boxes of things that can find new repurposed life as Steampunk or hardware jewelry. Earth-friendly, green jewelry.

Hardware Store Glory

They are closed for inventory until July, but once they’re open again, I’ll be back to dig for more bits and bobs.

“Invention, it must be humbly admitted, does not consist of creating out of void, but out of chaos” – Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley
