|Early idea for the train|
You can see above one of my earlier ideas ... but I kept playing around with it - or putting it aside but not completely away, because I really wanted to make something with a train theme.
So Last week I ran across the brass train again, and I had fairies out, and it just clicked. I mean someone has to drive the engine right? Who better than a fairy, at least when it's my jewelry.
|Before I got my hands on the back....|
|And after I added color and brass!|
So I fished around and found this cute square face from a old alarm clock. The back was pretty ugly, so I decided to add patina and then brass to make it look nice from both sides. I added another clock part in the front, and it might be hard to tell from the picture but I have small watch gears in front of the train wheels.
