Pocketwatch Necklace

IMG_4872

This has been an idea in the back of my head for a while now. Soooo fiddly, the chain took forever as it is actually 3 chains twined around each other to form a rope and then left loose in the middle where the charms are. It was a nightmare. But I have to grudgingly admit that it was worth it.

The components are from all over the place- Tim Holtz Idea-ology, & Gypsies, Graphics 45, Plaid, as well as some I’ve had for so long I’ve forgotten where they come from.

 

The one cool thing I want to point out is that the piece inside the watch is actually glued onto a piece of Tim Holtz Idea-ology Kraft Glassine that had been wrinkled and inked over in Silver and Slate Alcohol Inks. Then it was the placed inside without glue. Now I can take it out and change it whenever I want! Thanks heaps to Tim for this idea, I probably wouldn’t have thought of it myself .

Details…

Despite the sweat, blood and tears that went into this piece, it feels good to have started off the new year creating. Happy new year!
