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....

Best...

Beautiful! I love the colour of those beads and I'm always a sucker for some steampunk!

Thank you both... it was a fun piece to put together.

Need to get it up on Etsy soon.. going to revamp the store and give it a fresh look.

Cool! Time does fly doesn't it. Would be fun to wear such a playful reminder around your neck!
