Another 100 Colorado Creatives: Becky Wareing-Steele

#93: Becky Wareing-Steele

Becky Wareing-Steele lives in a world of miniatures, where tiny figures and creatures go about their lives inside tiny bottles and jars and whimsical lockets, and even among the jagged crystals of cracked-open geodes. Her crafting career started with a button-making machine and worked its way into diorama-building; now Wareing-Steele's growing family of miniatures, under the moniker of Becky's Buttons, have become sought-after collectibles at local craft shows and boutiques. How does the world look from outside of those tiny bubbles? Wareing-Steele shared her big picture in the following 100CC questionnaire.

KEEP WESTWORD FREE... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Susan Froyd started writing for Westword as the "Thrills" editor in 1992 and never quite left the fold. These days she still freelances for the paper in addition to walking her dogs, enjoying cheap ethnic food and reading voraciously. Sometimes she writes poetry.
