Violets In Springtime...

I've been working hard on some new pieces to sell in my Etsy shop for Mother's Day.  I wanted to evoke the feelings I always got when I visited my grandmother's home.  She was an unbelievable gardener, and always had violets in the Springtime.

For the focal, I soldered a copper bezel to copper sheet that I etched with a wild rose pattern.  Using digital collage images behind an antique Bulova watch face, I tried to evoke the colors of Springtime.

The simple 27" chain is made from hand-made copper wire-wrapped links made from Czech fire-polished glass beads in lovely shades of lavender, violet and palest blue, copper chain, and a handmade copper clasp.

Happy shopping!

** As I was writing this post, this piece sold, so check back soon for more Mother's Day pieces! **

Molly, what a stunning necklace...love the resin filled bezel with the vintage watch face. It certainly is the perfect spring time piece...and all year long.

Beautiful! It reminds me of a classical Victorian piece. Might be the clock face in the bezel. I love the subtle etching and colors... lovely work :)
