Ancestor Jewelry

Originally uploaded by craftartjonee.

Repurposing old watches as jewelry is a good way to use non working ones. I removed the works of the watches by popping off the backs and made a base for the photos from mat board. Some watches have unique attachments for the band, others you can put beads and a chain on the spring that holds the band on. The pocket watch was my grandfathers but was in bad shape with no glass and a broken face so I replaced it with his photo and glazed the photo to protect it.
