“The Golden Goose”
Sterling silver wristwatch case, pocket watch and wristwatch parts, rescued silver
25mm X 35mm approximately

Another impulsive purchase of watch parts from a watchmakers estate provided this hinged sterling silver watch case. Picturing an Art Deco inspired necklace, this is the result. The pocket watch bridge plate, complete with three rubies just needed a jewelled head to become a golden goose. I polished back an old face, revealing the brass beneath to represent the setting sun, and closed the hole with a brass watch gear, rescued silver forms the bail, and the whole becomes a locket. Polishing has removed decades of grime from the case, which still retains a patina of wear.

“Bottle Rocket”
Scrap brass, rescued copper wire, miniature glass bottle
60mm x 12mm approximately

In case of emergency, break glass!

In keeping with my mantra that “He who dies with the most tools, wins”, I recently acquired a miniature engineers lathe and had to play with it, (before reading the instructions, of course!). This little rocket is the result!

“The Oracle”
Boulder opal, garnet, copper wire, vintage silver three tone pocket watch case
28mm x 40mm approximately

Sometimes when creating, you start with a direction in mind and end up in a completely different place! I started this project intending to carve a wombat brooch out of a piece of white laced boulder opal matrix. The opal shattered and a dragon emerged from the wreckage - obviously she had been trapped for some time and was keen to escape! After some shaping and polishing and receiving a dark red garnet for an eye and some rescued copper wire for her fiery breath, she needed a new residence. The vintage solid silver pocket watch case has yellow and rose gold embellishments on the rear, but was missing the glass, crown and bow. I made a new bow from sterling wire and added a crown and glass from my stock of watch parts.
Why “The Oracle”? I feel that the lady dragon has seen much over time, and whilst encased, her mind must have wandered the universe and seen much. Now, if you hold the amulet that she has become in your hand, close your eyes and ask a question of her, the answer you need should present - if she feels that you are worthy!

I think it looks like a crocodile as well and I love it

“Coastal Summer”
Boulder opal and brass pocket watch gear
28mm x 14mm approx.

Inspired by the rocky coast of our world heritage listed Great Ocean Road, I made this pendant to reflect the wonderful colours inherent in the scenery. Nature did most of the work, over a twenty million year period. My contribution took somewhat less time!

“London Time”
14.17 carat London Blue Topaz, antique hallmarked silver pocket watch case lid
48mm diameter approximately

I purchased this beautiful stone at auction and have been hanging out to mount it in a special way. The pocket watch case lid is hallmarked, indicating the silver came from London in 1905. With the rest of the case nowhere to be found, I decided to put the two together and make a big statement! Thoughts of Doctor Who and the TARDIS came to mind whilst creating, and I’m very pleased with the result.

This vintage Rip Curl watch arrived with a terrible cracked, bright pink vinyl band. A new battery was inserted and away she went. This style of watch has fixed band mounts, so rather than try to find a replacement traditional band, I made a stainless steel Byzantine chain mail one with a dragon catch. Now it’s a multicultural marvel, looking for a new home! ... See MoreSee Less
