|The front.. mostly brass stampings and one of the large 2+ inch cogs from the cash register|
|Side view, you can see how the cog is balanced .. you can make that puppy twirl in place!|
|back.. I wanted the back to be, if not pretty, at least acceptable.|
I really liked Industrial Chic... it had that hard edge to it but still conveyed some sense of artwork... and of course I totally forgot it 's the name of a line of jewelry components!!!
While I could probably get away with it, part of what I wanted in a jewelry line name is to convey the sense of wonder and excitement I have making this stuff... using a name already associated with jewelry would be ick... I mean I'm into recycling but not thievery!
So the last few weeks hubby and I have kicked around various names... Industrial Renewal, industrial Objects d Arte ( as suggested by my good Friend Sue) etc etc etc...
A couple of nights ago I think we came up with a winner: Mechanical Romance. It has a nice ring and I think it conveys the sense of using metal bits to make something lovely! and I'm sure in love with making it!!!
A little net searching, and while there is a band with that name and a wrestling team, I couldn't find any links to jewelry.
So ... introducing what I've already been making for months now... Mechanical Romance. What do you think??
next up: Bead Soup Blog Hop reveal!! Woot!
