Tick Tock Clock Necklace
I recently scored a bunch of old French and German brass stampings and filigree. These pieces are heavy and ornate and unbelievably detailed. I had 2-3 frames and all I could think of is old wall clocks. So I added a vintage watch face, and I recycled these funky drops from a 1970-80's bracelet that made perfect looking weights. Add chain, and it looks like you are wearing a Victorian clock !
I've only got this one done so far, but I've at least 2 more to make, with completely different brass frames. The lots I've been buying are all rare and mostly 1 piece of each type... so really special and unique pieces.
I'm keeping my eye's open - I"m hoping I can find a few more old brass stampings that scream old wall clocks at me!
