Altered pocket watch
This is a pocket watch Ibought from Jeanette at Vintage Supply Co and took apart.
Quite a fun process and worth remembering there is a particulaly boingey spring in there that catapults the contents accross the room as I discovered the hard way LOL :D
I decided to use the casing and make a pendant using a pic of my Great Aunt Molly (or Mary Ellen to be precise) printed on canvas.
I cut a piece of Prima Pastiche as the baselayer then added lace,springs, cogs, watch hands and a couple of pretty embellies.
The added a watch face over the photo.
I then re-assembled the watch casing - have to say I love it :D
I'm going to add this to the Alter it challenge blog as Mays theme is Tin Pan ally - altered metal items :D
