I made a necklace today using pieces from an old-old pocket watch.
I pried a lot of the works off of the watch to get down to the large flat disk that is the main piece of the actual watch. Then I started adding pieces back....
There were several pieces that looked like fingers, so I reattached them and slide in a Holy Cross which once hung from a vintage rosary.
On the backside, I added a small vintage watch face along with a lot of tiny rhinestones that I glued into most of the small holes left by the screws I took out. I added a strand of rhinestone to the outer edge, I think it makes it look like a gear wheel. Not quite steam punk... but more to my liking.
I've joined in on Simon Says Monday Art challenge, this weeks theme was "Tick Tock"
