This week's theme: Artist Made Jewelry

There is no easy way to describe artist made jewelry. The materials used and the pieces made are as diverse as the artists that create them. Each piece is one of a kind and it's this uniqueness that makes artist made jewelry so special.


Art: elgin steam train 1.jpg by Artist ClockworkZero

This silvery pocket watch case holds memories of Steam Train dreams using vintage elements. A stunning black glass intaglio has an incredibly detailed steam train etched into the back of the glass. It is a golden brass color that is complimented with bits of scroll work and gears. Down at the bottom is a beautifully engraved pocket watch piece from an fine Elgin pocket watch.   It is still available over on my www.clockworkzero.etsy.com site.  More photos of it over there.  

In this piece I was trying to create the sensation of looking through a small window - the case framed it well, creating a nice mobile wearable piece of art.
