Time Flies Necklace
Many projects in the works right now... a painting... some textured collages for Quimby & Smith's upcoming show and some small pieces with a Christmas theme.
This is a necklace that I just finished using a vintage pocket watch. You can't see it in the picture, but there is a vivid cobalt blue screw at the bottom and a sparkling crystal in the centerpiece. I reflected those blues in the cobalt blue beads, then hand forged differing styles of links to create the rest of the necklace.
I like to wear my jewelry before selling it so I can determine if anything needs adjusting or finishing. In this case some of the links seemed to have tiny burrs that would catch on a delicate sweater, so I went over the whole necklace with a file, smoothing out anything that might catch.
I think it's done :o)
Have a great day....
