It all began one Presidents' Day...
During a quick trip to Portland one day, my thoughtful hubby stopped to pick up a free Craigslist item for me-some leftover watch parts for use in crafting. Looking over the box of various vintage watch parts-from faces to gears, from pocketwatches to winding stems-I found them all mesmerizing! I knew that I could never get tired of creating from all the different types of watch findings.
As I sit with my materials and try new projects, I often stop and wonder about the history of these watches...to whom did they belong?...How were they used?...Were they special gifts given to loved ones? There is a romance to working with these special pieces, and each piece brings along its own bit of personal history with it as I craft them into one-of-a-kind earrings, brooches, and more.
Naturally, they often prompted me to stop and consider...time! How do I choose to fill my time? And how can I make the best use of the time I have left. Because they have this particular power, they feel like meditative charms to me, and I love to wear them often and prominently. I hope these pieces will inspire you as well.
