ENAMEL EXPERIMENTS

I am working my way through an eBay purchase of 1.5kg of vintage pocket watch parts, experimenting with copper, enamel and riveting.


I particularly like this one with the broken glass,
to make a change from using the realistic moth transfers I have rummaged through my pile of



screen print transfers and popped some random images on the moths. I think this is a line of enquiry I will follow further as the weeks go by as I have several dozen spoons that are crying out for decoration.

Cannot help but think just how exciting that E Bay package must have been to open! Lovely work, especially the one with the broken glass.

Looks like you're having great fun with these treasures - pls show the spoons when you play with them!!

That's a lot of watch parts! Have you got some master plan....or will you keep experimenting with them? They are such a great idea and can't wait to see the spoons when you do them. Lesley xx

I really love these. The watch parts and their associations with time and memory seem to be the perfect accompaniment for you moths.
