Time and Obsession

earrings using vintage watch and clock gears.  I know these don't match, they are from 2 different pairs  :)

"knight in shiny armor" earrings, using vintage pocket watch bridge pieces, vintage clock gears, and brass dangles. 
Making pieces for my Mechanical Romance line --- love playing with the gears, odd bits of metal, etc.   My favorite parts are from watches and clocks.. but you all have probably figured that out. 

It's not just because they are incredibly kewl looking, and amazing to think about- the first ones were hand made, can you imagine???? - because they are about our obsession with time itself.

Do you have enough time to do everything you want?  Will you lose your job if you are not on time everyday?  Look how fast your kids grow up, where did all the time go? How much time did you just waste messing around the Internet?  How long are the commercials on this show?   Why is that car taking so long to move, they have the light!!  Sorry I'm late, I lost track of time.  The train ran on time.  Tea Time.  8 hour work day (HA!)

You get the idea.

Time is indeed a "versatile performer," as Franklin P. Jones once observed. "It flies, marches on, heals all wounds, runs out, and will tell."
