New jewelry

For a while, I collected broken watches and then took them apart. As I should have known, watches are all electronic and only contain a few tiny gears, most made of plastic, so watches are not a source of gears as they used to be. Most steam punk style jewelry is made from faux watch parts made in China.

As the watches got pried apart, I found interesting reels of copper wire and decided to use them to make something. This is the result. The center pendant is a coil of wire from a broken external hard drive. Techno-Egyptian revival?

I am a retired archaeologist and I like to travel, especially to places where you can walk along the shore or watch birds. My husband Jonathan and I travel for more than half the year every year, seeing all the places that we haven't gotten to yet.
