I'm going to start this post with a disclaimer - I cannot take all of the credit for this craft. My husband, Mr. Road and craftster persona de6w6it, did MUCH of the work on the time turner. I only offered moral support and the occasional directional nudge.  Grin

This project was created for the One Awesome Harry Potter Thing swap. I was partnered (by request) with the fabulous FiberAlchemist and immediately had swap anxiety about what to make her. I think I went back and forth between at least four ideas 50 times. At least. Nothing felt up to the caliber of her crafting and the "Awesome" swap requirements. Eventually I realized that Mr. Road and I could combine our powers to attempt a time turner necklace. (If you're not familiar with Harry Potter, here's a reference image.) Once I got Mr. Road's (cautious) buy-in, we got to work.

The rings of the turner were made from pieces of copper piping that were cut and flattened, then cut "roughly" to three circumferences (there was some finagling come assembly time). The center circle as cut from a flat piece of copper with the time turner center brazed into place.

Here's a pre-assembly pic:



At this point, I got out my stamping supplies and went to work. The center piece was adorned with stars and the outer piece with the quote, "I mark the hours, every one, Nor have I yet outrun the Sun. My use and value, unto you, Are gauged by what you have to do."



From here, things got a little frustrating and finicky, so I lost track of the progress pics, but eventually, it all came together to make this:



Some different views that show the stamped quote:





Each ring moves independently. Here's what it looks like when laid flat:



Obviously the final piece became a bit too large to wear as a necklace, so we decided it was more of a decorative piece and used the appropriate hanging attachment.

Additionally (mostly because I felt that I had not contributed sufficiently to the project at this point), I made a bag to protect the time turner inspired by Hermione's bottomless bag (reference image), but using my own dyed fabric and stash.





Safely tucked away, so it can only be used with the utmost need and care:



Ultimately, we were pretty happy with the outcome, and hope that it found a place in FiberAlchemist's home and heart. Thanks for looking all!

I agree with JoyfulClover; I wanted this too! On the plus side, I am a lucky recipient of an Abbee+Mr.Road project that hangs on my wall year round.  Cheesy Rocks!

Haha - thanks guys! I'll just show Mr. Road these comments the next time I come to him with a project and he gives me the crazy eyes.
