Clocks....Inspiration is everywhere...
Clock- an instrument used to indicate, keep, and co-ordinate time and is one of the oldest human inventions. The first mercury powered automata clock was invented by Ibn Khalafa al-Muradi between 1280 and 1320. (wiki)
Clocks are looked at multiple times a day by everyone around the world, but how many people really look at them? From tiny clock faces on wrist watches to clocks on the wall or as large and magnificent as the "Big Ben" in London, they really deserve a more in depth look than just 'what time is it?' . The styles, materials, history and intricacies tell a story all in itself.
A friend of mine who is a very talented artist/designer makes her own jewelry and at one time did a 'clock' series that was really popular. It was amazing what she came up with. She found all of these different clock faces at different antique shops and designed and made the jewelry herself.
