"Time Spins," by Laura Ross, of Barnyard Steamworks. An antique watch dial with an antique watch barrel bridge riveted together so the dial actually spins.
"I create jewelry from antique pocket watches, vintage wrist watches, vintage jewelry, old, new & found items. I use cold connections to secure the pieces. Jewelry should make the wearer feel happy. My one-of-a-kind pieces put smiles on the faces of those that wear the pieces and those that see them wearing it. Life is too short to wear boring jewelry."
