As you can see, in this piece I cut a hole in the clock face. I added a few spinners, ala Tim Holtz, and a gear backdrop. I love that the spinners still move. A few more gears were added with jump rings to frame out the focal point. In this photo my necklace is draped over my challenge book. One of the backs of my pages has this lovely paper from the Tattered Time stack.
The inspiration for this piece was actually the chain that I found in one of my junque boxes. I was gathering cool stuff for travel when I happened upon this and immediately wanted to try out a jewelry piece with Tim's stuff. I did go "matchy matchy" and used all brass pieces. I am pretty pleased with the results.
How fun to revisit my jewelry making roots. Looking forward to a Bead Soup adventure too. Stay tuned for that one!
