These two necklaces were a lot of fun to put together, lovely old pocket watch and clock pieces with copper chain. I am told this makes them 'steampunk' I did some research and I am not sure I agree... but steampunk is fashionable and I rarely manage to be fashionable so I guess I will accept the label as a compliment.
This bottom necklace combines a delicate antique doll and shoe button with sturdy copper and a focal lava bead. There are other contrasts, the egg shaped bead and the calcified, umm.. poop.. from the ocean. There seems to be a focus in our art world at the moment on the symbology of eggs, this farm girl remembers where they come from... And holds that thought with the potential and new beginnings promised. The realistic logical side of my brain playing with the arty dream weaving side. Does it work? I hope so.
