Cut up an old (non-silver) chain, and put beads and stuff Smiley


Some of the little beads are hearts, I wanted to make some little teacups out of clay, but I'm not so hot at clay Sad

I bought the pocket watch from Spain, but it was juts on a crappy plain chain when I bought it



Comments and critisism welcome Smiley

That's really cool! You definitely made the watch stand out without taking away from its uniqueness.

It's great even without the teacups. Smiley I like that you used black and red beads with silver watch. It really fits together.

I love it! I think it looks better like this than if you had added homemade teacups because it is so clean and plain yet still interesting. If there were clay teacups that would be adding another material and possibly another color and it would have detracted from the overall piece I think. It looks so sophisticated and modern/victorian like.  Smiley

Oh, this is really pretty.  I love how much I'm starting to see old pocket watches around.  You can't ever go wrong with red, black, and white!

I got them from Oasis market in Birmingham - if you don't live near there, I could send you some if you like??


And yes, the clasp is on the side - it's a little heart Tongue


Thanks for your feedback, everyone Smiley much appreciated

A b&m store, I should've known! I wanted enough for a whole necklace of just big bubble beads, so I'll let you keep them - but thanks so much for offering! Cheesy
