Tick Tock...

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"
big hugs,

Great necklace cheryl! I've saved a bunch of pocket watches to do somthing with someday. Probably something halloweenish. Have a good night!

Wow! This piece is fantastic! I am a fan of amazing jewelry and this definitely fills the bill! I thought it was brilliant of you to deconstruct the clock parts and then reassemble them so stunningly. The addition of the vintage cross was lovely and I'm amazed that the back looks just as gorgeous as the front! Really remarkable work and I'm so glad you shared your talents with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge.
