CrownJewlers copy

The owner of Crowne Jewelers in Leominster, MA has been giving me old watches that are unrepairable to use in my art pieces.  When I saw the Clock Assemblage case that Tim Holtz has , part of his Idea-ology line of products, I knew what I wanted to do…I got to work and made this for Roger. The case is covered in Ranger’s Foil Tape sheets that I textured with Tim’s Alterations plate…I used old watch faces with polymer clay letters to spell out “Jewelers”.  Inside the case are letters made from Grunge board that spell “CROWNE”.  Most of the techniques I used were learned from Tim in the many classes I have been fortunate enough to attend.  The clock handle, feet and front edge were painted with a 18 KT gold leaf pen. This was a really fun project!
